Hi everyone, I'm just about to move in to the Marina too (albeit by myself) and will be looking for a cleaner once a week. Am I right in thinking that it's usually a 4 hour minimum? Does anyone know of a good agency and can you give me an approximate cost for 4h pw? Cheers!

Best place to get names and phone #s is from the billdoard post at your local supermarket store (ie spinney's, choitram, etc..)
