Yes, all homes will have a telephone. However each home will have a different arrangement for the making of calls. Some will only have free local calls available while others will have free local and long distance (including calls to mobile/cellular phones). A few of our homes also offer free International calls. Some have even provided an answer phone for their guests convenience.

8. What facilities are there for children?
In Silver Creek there is a very new playground, ideal for the under 10s. Many owners have provided a games room , which may provide table tennis, pool, foosball, air hockey or darts. Some homes will have an extensive range of board games, DVDs, CDs and even the latest computer games such as Playstation, XBox and Nintendo Wii. Most will have toys suitable for the younger children.
There is a lovely half-hour walk, which goes right around the outer boundary of Silver Creek, passing behind the houses and beside the natural and man-made ponds. Good shoes are recommended.
9. Do I need pool and spa heat?
This is very much a personal choice , and therefore the reason that we offer it as an additional cost item. Generally, it is advisable to have pool heat from October through until the end of March, because although the daytime can be over 80F, the long nights are chilly and the pool water loses heat. This can be elected at the time of booking, or as late as after you arrive when the Management Company will turn it on for you , even if you have not previously requested it. Check with the owner if a pool blanket is provided for keeping the heat overnight.
10. Why should I book a villa as opposed to an hotel room?
A villa offers you amazing value per person, privacy, no restrictions, a choice of bedrooms and a great deal of living space, all on one or two floors. You can brew up or eat at any time you please, and stock your own bar at low US prices. There is probably internet by Wi-Fi, maybe even a PC provided. Very likely there is a games room, DVDs, CDs, computer games and other entertainments. Outside, your car is on the drive, and at the back there is a private pool probably with a spa, often with a lovely view, and room to dine al fresco from the BBQ. Above all, it is a home, not a hotel room, and you get all its facilities for the one overall price!
