Welcome to my home! I hope you enjoy the home as much as I do with its views of the surrounding ocean, bay and dunes. To maximize your enjoyment I thought I would share with you the following notes:
check-in-4pm/check-out 11am. You're welcome to park at the house after 12 PM if you arrive early and hang out at the beach
The price does not include a local 3% hotel tax which you can send me separately. Children and pets are permitted on a case by case review. Children over 2 count toward the number of guests.
The fresh air and breezes are one of the enjoyable aspects of living near the ocean. The most effective way to cool the second floor is by opening the skylights, terrace door and all the windows with screens. It's actually more effective than the A/C.
Please lock the doors, windows and skylight firmly any time you leave the house and in the evening. (The ocean mist at night collects over everything so it's important to keep the windows closed at night).
Please do not use the operable windows on the terrace railing, especially with children around.
No smoking/no frying (deposit will be forfeited) and no shoes
a/c+heat: there are 2 thermostats. the kitchen thermostat controls the upstairs. the master bedroom controls the downstairs.
There is an iPod player on the kitchen counter. You're welcome to bring your own music or use my iPod.
You're welcome to use the fireplace. The damper is on the shaft facing the window. Please bring your own firewood.
No eating or drinking on the beige sofa or on the flokati rug.
There are two refrigerators, one undercounter refrigerator in the kitchen and one full-size refrigerator/freezer in the laundry room downstairs. This was to keep the clean, low line of the kitchen counter.
The feather lamp above the dining table is sensitive to oils and smoke in the air so when cooking please open the skylight above the stove. Kindly always use the pot lids and absolutely no frying.
Please accompany children using the stair. (you will be required to sign a release re: the stair as a condition for use of the house).
If you crack it open at night you can hear the ocean waves if the wind direction is right. Just remember to close it any time you leave the house.
The TV has standard cable stations. There's a Blu-ray DVD player so you're welcome to bring your DVDs.
On clear nights I like to look through the skylight at the stars above. If the morning sun bothers you, you can always shift the pillows to the other end.
The master bedroom lights are controlled by two switches, one at the entrance and one at the bed. These lights also serve to light the master bathroom.
Guest bedroom: welcome to read any books from my library. The access to the crawlspace is through the hatch next to the sofa should you need to turn off the water main in an emergency. Rotate the yellow valve 90°
close and lock all windows, skylights and doors.
leave the key in the designated place where you found it.
leave the garbage in the garbage can with the lid with something heavy on it and the recyclables (single stream so you can combine metal, glass, plastic and paper products) in the can without the lid. Both cans are located in the back yard
turn off the a/c and upstairs refrigerator (very important). During Cold weather turn down the thermostat to 55
run the dishwasher to clean any used dishes etc.
place used towels in the washing machine
please email or text me when departing and....
