Interaction with guests
If possible, I meet them personally at the apt. at an appointed time, or I send a friend to welcome them and give them information on sights and transportation. We can communicate by phone or email. Upon leaving, the guests are asked to just leave the key on the table indoors and pull door close. They are requested not to leave the key in the door at any time.
Other things to note
The place is my own private apt., but I make room for my guests. They are welcome to browse though my books, DVDs and records. The have free use of all bedding, kitchen and cooking and bathroom equipment provided, but are asked to leave the place in a normal tidy state.
I am happy to say that so far my guests have respected the privacy of the place and taken appropriate care. There are no special rules as long as they treat my place the same way as they would their own.

As a veterinary surgeon I live abroad using my lakeside apartment only occasionally during vacation time with my family, and my Vienna city apartment is being used by family members during my absence, but free a lot of times. Both apts are very comfortable and well looked after.
