HOUSE RULES AND HELPFUL INFORMATION
We trust that you are who you say you are. Though we've had bookings under Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde :)
However local laws require that we have ID verification before we accept a booking. Thank you for submitting yours through AirBnB.
While we love to make people happy and share in their journey towards a better future, we unfortunately don't rent the House or the Grounds for Weddings or Large Parties. The house is really a home, not a rental hall and is not equipped for heavy traffic or intense usage. You are however welcome to book us and have your party at any of the nearby locations we can tell you about :)
CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT PROCEDURES
Upon arrival, our property manager will show you how to use all the appliances, the various electronics, show you fragile items and describe the overall operations of the house. (Note that there is a camera facing the front entrance door that monitors entry & exit from the house (allowed under French Law).
She will also go through a check-in list and a responsibility waiver that she will have you sign.
She will then give you keys to the house and a remote control to open the automated gate to the property.
Don't lose them while looking up the Eiffel Tower :)
Upon check-out, she will go through the same check-in list and will sign off with you that all is in order. If there are broken or damaged items, please tell her. Mistakes happens and we like people that are upfront. We may then forget and forgive. But if we discover it after you've left, then we will reach out to you to pay for it :(
Smoking will kill you slowly and painfully. Save your life for your kids and your family.
But if you insist on smoking, we absolutely positively don’t authorize any smoking in the house or near the entryways into the house. A breeze from the outside carries the smoke inside the house and its smell sticks to furniture. Yuckyyyy!!!
This is an expensive cleanup cost. If you have to smoke, and slowly kill yourself while on this beautiful earth, there are 2 tables, front yard and backyard, that are 40 feet from the house. You can only smoke there :(
If it is raining, use the umbrellas we have by the front door.
While we love pets, other people are allergic to them.
So unfortunately, we don’t authorize pets inside the house or on the grounds. You will be charged a significant cost to clean up and deodorize the house if you violate this rule. You may be subject to eviction too if we catch you :)
This is our home. We are sharing it with you.
Enjoy it as you would your own home, respect the antique furniture that survived the ages and please keep the house as clean as you found it.
Also, please be considerate to the maids that will clean up after you. Your maid service cost covers regular maid service such as clean sheets & towels, sweeping, dusting, bathroom cleaning. If you leave a pigsty behind you, thinking you're a rock star, our maids will be very unhappy and will chase you down the street with their ol' granny's broom!! You will be charged extra clean up costs if you leave extra dirt or garbage behind you.
We provide linens and towels. We have expensive Versailles-style hardwood floors and hardwood stairs. We do not allow shoes inside the house. Guests usually walk barefoot or bring with them non-slippery slippers. Socks are NOT allowed because guests can slip on the waxed hardwood floors and steps. We have warning signage reminders.
It is free! but pleeeease enjoy your vacation and stay away from your emails and get your kids to take a break from online games.
We have an extended WIFI network. Password on the refrigerator in the kitchen.
If you do not have your own transportation, we highly recommend you make a reservation at Avis, select the Rambouillet branch for a 9-p minivan rental. That will allow you to get to the Tram station (10-mn drive) and to the supermarkets (10-mn drive) and local restaurants.
What are your flight arrival details? How are you getting to the property from the airport? We work with a car service that can give you a quote.
Please go through our bed configuration list by room in our detailed description page here on Airbnb and determine who is sharing rooms and beds, so we can prepare in advance to have the necessary number of extra rollaway beds. We need this info at least 3 weeks before your arrival, otherwise we cannot guarantee you will have the rollaways at check-in.
We suggest you look at our detailed description and read the list of local monuments you can visit, that are not all in central Paris. They may be also of interest to your students.
We pride ourselves in being super-responsive and in providing a great customer service experience. If you have any questions, please email us here on the AirBnB . Their insurance and T&Cs require it so that they can monitor our responses, resolutions, and document all our conversations ;( We'd love your texts or phone calls, but we will respond through their messaging center exclusively.
Share, Love, Live!
