Arrival and stay

How do I pay for my accommodation on Nautilius-Bay?

Normally we will send you a booking confirmation by e-mail, in which we will explain how you can pay for your accommodation. If we ask you for a deposit or full payment before your arrival, you can make this either by bank transfer or PayPal. If you still have to pay a balance on your arrival, we ask you to pay this in cash, since unfortunately we cannot accept payments by EC card or credit card for technical reasons.

Further details can be found in our payment and cancellation terms.

On which day of the week is it possible to arrive?

The change of beds in most of the other apartments is on Saturdays, which leads to an enormous amount of traffic on the roads and at the ferry.
