Please be assured that all the refuse is collected and recycled. More information is provided on this facility in your welcome folder.
5. How are the apartments allocated?
The apartments are allocated by your Exchange Company. The majority of our apartments are owned all year round and our owners may choose to use their apartment or deposit with an Exchange Company. Their apartment then becomes available to exchange guests who are looking to stay at The Passage House Club. Our owners may deposit with any exchange company they wish, such as RCI, Dial an Exchange, UKRE etc. We also rent any of our units which are not owned.
6. Do all the units have a bath?
All units have baths with overhead showers.

As the apartments are allocated by your Exchange Company, we cannot guarantee the apartment will be estuary facing. You can contact us direct to check your allocation and, if you do require front facing and we have the availability, we may be able to upgrade you at a fee. Allocations for RCI points are not available until 4 weeks prior to your arrival date. We will not be able to give you information until that time.
