Interaction with guests
As a fully bi-lingual host, I can provide you with assistance throughout your stay. I also speak some Japanese and Italian.
I am always available by phone, email and other contact methods, ready to assist you. I like socializing, whenever I am in town; but we can keep limited interactions if you prefer. Please keep in mind that I spend half the year away, so I may not even be present during your stay, however there will be a co-host to always assist you.
You do not need to interact with the dog, but you can if you want.
Other things to note
We have an available VoIP phone line with a Florida number, in case you need to receive or make calls to the USA or Canada, or if you need to reach me while I'm traveling abroad. Calls to other countries will be extra.
We take security very seriously and never take it for granted, regardless of how safe our location is.
We have a dog on the premises (miniature schnauzer) who lives indoors. He likes being greeted and will bark regardless of who it is entering the house. He does not bite but will most likely be in the back patio.
Whenever I am in Quito, I run my office from my house so I will, from time to time, have customers come in to the reception office. They will never visit the living quarters. Most often I go to meet with them.
You may also use the extended office space if you need to.
No drugs of any kind will be allowed, except those under prescription and over the counter medicines (no, I will not ask to see the prescription).
Smoking is allowed ONLY outside, either at the terrace or patios with the doors closed.
The dog is a member of the family, and while you do not have to tend to him, he must not be mistreated. All pet rules are explained on the guest guide in your room.
Social gatherings past 11pm on work nights must avoid being too loud to prevent disrupting the host and neighbors.
