This is an apartment building, and noise must be kept reasonable at all times. Absolutely no extra guests permitted outside of the booking, and no drugs to be at the flat at any time. Please treat the house with the same respect as you would treat your own home, as that is exactly what it is to us!
1. Please treat the house like you would treat your own home because it is my home. Far too often over the past months, I have noticed that people have been needlessly careless with their bags and belongings and unnecessary marks are appearing on walls, doors are being chipped. Please, be considerate of my home and how much I love it and care for it. My home is not a holiday rental, it is a home that I choose to share with others because I think you will find joy in it.
2. I am happy for you to use and enjoy my belongings whilst you are staying in my home, though please remember, they are personal and do not belong to you.
3. Please be a conscious Airbnb guest and do not leave on lights and heating when you go out. There are security measures in place to protect the house, and you are helping me and the environment by switching everything off when you leave the house.
4. Please make sure you lock the house securely when you leave.
5. Check in time is from noon onwards; please be as specific as possible about when you are arriving. If your plans change, please contact me.
6. Check out time is 9am. I am not able to offer “late check-out” or “luggage storage” as I am not a hotel with staff. I pay someone to clean the house at check out time (9am), and to get the house ready for the next guest. If you have a late flight, and would like to stay in the house, please book an extra day at the reasonable rate I offer the house for.
7. No drugs are to be brought into the house.
8. There is a strict no-smoking rule in the house. You can smoke on the balcony with the door closed. Please dispose of your cigarette buts in the ashtrays outside.
9. Please be considerate of my neighbours who live very close to the house, and some of them elderly. If you are enjoying the outside areas after 10pm, please keep your noise down to a considerate and respectful level.
