How can I make a booking?
Once a suitable cottage has been found, you can either book it directly online or send an inquiry to us. You can pay conveniently at our booking service or by invoice.

You can use the search function to find the suitable cabins for your needs or check the availabaility calendar of the cabin to find out the allowed arrival days.
During low season it is more flexible and you can rent shorter periods as well. The minimum rental time is usually 3 nights.

Can I rent a cabin just for a weekend?
During low season the minimum rental time is 3 nights. During the winter high season the minimum rental time is 7 nights.
How many people are allowed to stay in the cottage?
Our cabins may be used up to the number of persons indicated in the cabin’s description. The number of persons consists of the total number of beds (beds+ spare beds). Please take into account that if the cabin has more than one spare bed, the cabin may feel a bit cramped with the full number of people.
An additional fee of € 250 will be charged per each additional person who has not been informed to AuroraCottage in advance. If the the number of tenants will change in the middle of the rental period, please agree on this in advance with AuroraCottage.
Is final cleaning included?
Final cleaning is always included in our prices so you can enjoy your vacations until the last minute.

Pets are welcome to those villas where it is mentioned in the description that bringing pets is allowed. As a customer, you are liable to inform us if a pet is traveling with you. An additional fee of 50 € will be charged for each pet up to two pets. The fee covers the cleaning expenses.
Please read the cabin folder for more information about pets at the cabin. Remember to cover the furniture with a blanket so that the cleaning will be easier. Please collect the droppings from the yard before leaving. Also, make sure that the pet does not cause any damage to the cabin or yard. All damages caused by the pet are compensated directly to the owner.

Arrival and departure
What is the check-in and check-out time?
You can see the exact check-in and check-out times in the description text of the cottage and you will also receive them by e-mail after your reservation. Most cottages have an arrival time of earliest 16:00 and a departure time of latest 10:00.
Is early check-in or late check-out possible?
During high season (weeks 51-17), unfortunately, we cannot offer early check-in or late check-out due to tight cleaning schedules. If the cabin has a key service, you can ask the key service in case the cabin has already been cleaned. You can also leave your luggage to the key service for storage on arrival or on departure.
During low season (weeks 18-50) early check-in or late check-out can be agreed upon. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
What can I do while waiting to check in or after checking out?
If you arrive by car train, please note that it takes time to unload the cars, and the arrival time at Ylläs is normally approx. 1.5 hours after the train’s arrival. Have a long lunch, go outside to enjoy the fresh air or do the grocery shopping while waiting. If you want to relax after or before traveling, take some time for yourself in the spa or gym. At Ylläs, you can also rent a day room for an affordable price.
Where do I get the key?
Once your booking has been confirmed we will provide more detailed information on your stay at the cottage. Our cabins have either key boxes or they use a key service. If the keys should be fetched at a key service, we will send you detailed information about the key service. If you cannot pick up the keys within the opening hours of the key service, please inform the key service so that they can prepare for your arrival.
If the cabin has a key box, you will receive instructions and a pin code a couple of days before the start of the reservation.
Are towels and bed linens included?
Towels and bed linens are usually not included, with a few exceptions. Please read through the cabin description. You can buy a linen set for 30 €/person while making the online reservation. The linen set includes bed linen, a towel and a hand towel. Linen sets can usually be found stacked on the bed upon your arrival. Optionally you can bring your own linen. If you later want to add linen sets to your reservation, please contact us at email@example.com
What should I bring with me?
You can get more information about the amenities of the cabins in the description of the cabin. In all our cottages you will find basic dishes and equipment for cooking and eating, as well as dish towels. There are a few rolls of toilet paper and one roll of kitchen paper to manage the first days. If you’re going for a week, please take toilet paper and kitchen paper with you.
Pack bed linen and towels if you have not rented them separately or if they are not included in the price. Please note that sheets, duvet covers and pillowcases must always be used in the beds. We also recommend taking a seat cover for the sauna to reduce disposable consumption.
You may not find spices, laundry detergent, coffee maker filter paper, salt or sugar at the cabin. We recommend to visit the cabin first to check the situation or take them with you. The owners do replenish the stocks, but because of the short exchange time between rentals, the spices are not checked weekly. For children, there is a travel cot, a high chair and a potty, if this is stated in the cottage’s description. Electricity, water and firewood are always included in the rental price.
Can I charge an electric vehicle at the rental cabin?
According to our rental conditions, charging an electric car or a hybrid car is only allowed if it is mentioned in the description or in the amenities of the cabin. A charging fee may be applied which should be paid upon booking, see cabin’s Extras. If the payment has not been made, please send a message to us. There may be restrictions on charging from the socket, see cabin’s description.
