We love spending time with our guests, but also appreciate their need for solitude, work, etc.
We do have 2 kitties on the premises. Puppy-cat (the white one is very social) and Billy-girl, our little old rescue kitty can be a little fussy (she was beat by her previous owners), but she usually likes being petted on the head. We don't like to let the cats out after dark. Thank you for helping us with keeping them in.
NO SMOKING - not in the house or on the grounds. Violators will be asked to leave and a negative review will be given.
Sheets & towels will be changed once a week and the room cleaned and vacuumed . Upon request your room will be tidied daily. If you use them, you will be RESPONSIBLE FOR CLEANING THE KITCHEN AND DISHES DAILY. For an additional $10 per day this service can and will be provided if necessary. We do not have, nor do we want a bug problem created by food left on the counter and dirty dishes laying around.
Since I don't work outside the home Breakfast Service is flexible. You just have to let me know in advance what time works for you and if you have any dietary preferences. If you prefer tea to coffee let me know and I will make sure you have a steaming pot available when you wake up.
The common area downstairs, patio and Hot Tub is for everyone’s use so please make yourself at home! Please “use indoor voices” after 9:00 pm.
Please help yourself to ice in the freezer & glasses in the cupboards in the Kitchen. If you take any dishes or glassware to your room, we would really appreciate it if you brought them back to the kitchen. Please understand that this is not a rental of the entire apartment, but of a large bedroom and private bath, with reasonable use of the kitchen and dining area. The open-plan kitchen/dining area is available for breakfast (provided by host) and snacks or meals (provided by guests), though not for full, cooked meals. The kitchen may be used for making sandwiches and light fare provided by you in case you are going for a long bike ride or hike… please clean up and replace items that are used.
The extra refrigerators in the workout room and garage are available for your perishables.
We am usually reachable by phone until 10pm. Emergency phone calls won't ever bother us!
Pets are generally discouraged as our kitties don't always welcome other pets but if you have a special need and your dog is very unobtrusive, let me know. We might be able to work it out
Washer/Dryer available for extended stays, please provide your own laundry products
Massage services need to be made as much in advance as possible since my friend who is a licensed professional masseuse has a full time position and works free-lance in the evenings/weekends.
