Interaction with guests
There is likely guest interaction with the puppy, who is often in the backyard where the studio is located. Guests are welcome to interact with hosts who live in the front house as much or as little as possible. We are very approachable and friendly, but also respect your privacy. Let us know if you would like any tips about tourist destinations / restaurants / takeout & delivery options - or if you've forgotten your cell phone charger - and we'll gladly assist!
Other things to note
An adorable, 8 lb maltipoo puppy and a dumpling-sized baby sulcata tortoise (who will eventually grow to be 100 lbs!) live in the main house. There is likely guest interaction with the puppy, who is often in the backyard where the studio is located.
Please be advised that security cameras are in use on the exterior of the main house.
This is a residential neighborhood, so we ask for quiet hours from 9 pm - 8 am. Please report any issues or concerns to the host immediately so we can resolve things promptly for you.
Please be sure the inner latch of the gate is secured when you come and go, so that our pup does not get out.
Absolutely NO smoking inside the studio. 420 is allowed in the backyard as long as you clean up after yourself. No candles or open flames in the studio.
No extra overnight guests above the number of guests stated on the reservation.
Please turn off space heaters when not in the studio. The space heater in the bathroom is certified safe for bathrooms / moist environments. Please do not move the living room space heater to the bathroom.
To discourage ants, store food securely in containers or zip lock bags provided. Take food-related trash and recycling to cans outside on a regular basis.
Laundry facilities are available in the main house by request.
Please wash your own dishes before checkout. It's fine to leave them out to dry. Dish drainer is stored above the sink. All other cleaning after your stay is included in the cleaning fee.
