Interaction with guests
I leave you alone, but I live in the upstairs of this building, so I am frequently home to help. I do work a lot, so if I am not around, you can text or email me for help. If I happen to be out of town, I will leave information for who you should contact for help.
Other things to note
My loveable golden doodle dog lives upstairs but she does not have access to your space. If there is a storm, she might get scared and go to the laundry room, but that's as far as she will go :)
- - This list is everything you need to be a good guest in my home. It is all very basic etiquette and easy to follow! This unit is in the basement/lower level There is NO partying, NO loud music, NO drugs. My neighbors will call the police for noise violations!! This is a very friendly location but neighbors like it quiet. I cannot stress this enough: if you are looking to party, this owner-occupied townhome is NOT FOR YOU. If you are a quiet traveler looking for a restful, quaint accommodation, this is your place. :) *******There is NO smoking in the unit or on the property. This is a town home with rules against smoking in common areas. To smoke, you must walk to the park across the street from the home****** - This is an old home with older plumbing. You can flush ONLY the toilet paper I provide. You must not flush ANYTHING else! If you use a Clorox wipe or paper towel to clean after yourself in the bathroom, put those items in the garbage... not the toilet. Ladies... NO sanitary items can be flushed of any kind (even if the package says they can be flushed!!!!!). If I have to call a plumber because something other than bodily fluids and the provided tissue get flushed, you will be charged the fee for the plumber. *This lower-level (basement) room is professionally cleaned before you move in. If you want fresh sheets or towels during your stay, you must do your own laundry with provided soap. - Help me keep costs low. Turn off all lights when not in use. - Clean your dishes in the kitchenette, dry them, and put them away so they are ready for the next guest. This includes plates, bowls, glasses, coffee cups, coffee pot, and wiping out the microwave. Also, take your trash out if you throw away food or something with odor. - Clean after yourself in the bathroom. This includes: cleaning water off the floor, wiping the sink for the next guest, putting both toilet seats down, cleaning the toilet after yourself, wiping the mirror if needed, and closing the shower curtain. -These simple tidying steps make the space neat for the next guest and if you don't do these simple things, you might be charged an extra cleaning fee. - You have access to the lower level of the home only. Within the unit, quiet hours are from 10:30 pm - 7 am. Please see my previous comments about noise and the neighbors. It is best to think of the outside as always having quiet hours. -
