Other things to note
It's hard to find a place to stay in South Hadley that is modern and sophisticated, with high-end appliances and amenities. This condo is perfect for anyone visiting Mount Holyoke or the Five Colleges.
1. The condo has NOT been child-proofed, and there is no special safety equipment for infants. If young children or infants occupy the house during your stay, you are responsible for guaranteeing their safety.
2. Condominium rules prohibit renters from keeping pets. (The residents are very strict about this, so please please do not bring your pet.)
3. Excessive noise (including parties) is not allowed, as my neighbors and I share a wall. (The condo is part of a duplex.)
4. Smoking, vaping, and drug use are prohibited in all areas of the condo.
5. Please remove your shoes and boots when you enter the house. The hardwood floors are easily damaged by heels.
