Interaction with guests
Our guests value their privacy, so we adjust our interaction to meet their needs. We are always available by phone, text or email.
Other things to note
The hammpground is in use all year but bear in mind that temperature appropriate clothing is required. Don't show up in winter wearing shorts and expect to be comfortable as it won't happen. Long underwear, caps, gloves and warm jackets are mandatory.
To insure no one ever goes hungry, we offer meal services, too. The meals we provide on request are not exactly cheap (as the price covers visiting various local farms, fetching organic ingredients, carefully preparing food and serving it warm to the doorstep or bed of the tipi, at any time you like). But we promise our meals won't only fill the stomachs, without exception people remember them as some of their best dining experiences ever.
Rule no. 1: UNWIND, RELAX & ENJOY. Reading the entire listing is a must to avoid unrealistic expectations, re-asking what is already explained and leaving bad rating because you didn't fully understand what you booked. Only one (1) person in a hammock at a time. The hammocks are rated for a maximum weight of 250 lbs to ensure safe and secure swinging. No eating, drinking, smoking or sharp objects, luggage, pets in the hammocks at any time. We appreciate finding the place just as we left it for you to enjoy. Please return things where you found them. Unless your mom is coming, wash, dry and put away your dishes. Cook only over the fire pit with provided grill, or on a portable stove (not provided). While we ask you to clean the grill after using it, we'll be happy to dispose of the ashes for you. All fires (including candles) must be monitored and put out prior to leaving the site or falling asleep. Smoking outdoors only (ashtray provided). We strive to minimize our environmental impact and so should our guests. Wastefulness is not appreciated. RECYCLE. You are welcome to leave recyclable waste but take away your trash. Every guest is provided free of charge all the necessary camping equipment (but welcome to use your own). Using a cotton sleeping bag liner is mandatory if utilizing our sleeping bags (both provided). Fee for additional guests applies to all ages. While sharing our serene property with you is fulfilling, we appreciate peace and quiet to maintained the tranquility. We like people very much but if you are the type who stresses over sun being too bright in the morning or raccoons licking the dirty dishes you left overnight, please do us all a favor and book somewhere else. We adore kids and animals but refuse to babysit adults. If ever in doubt about anything, ASK. We're always just a click or phone call away. Pet owners: if you insist on bringing your pups along, we expect them to be social, well-behaved and used to sleeping outdoors. If you can't control your dog, don't bring it. The last rule is to play fair: you relied on the reviews of others, so it's common courtesy you contribute too. MAKE SURE TO LEAVE YOUR REVIEW.
For us hospitality is a labor of love. Come join us and let us introduce you to this spectacular part of the world, where we celebrate every day of our lives.

Yes, we take our hosting very seriously and cutting corners is not our style. In fact, our ideas are constantly being borrowed by other hosts who lack what we have in abundance: experience, expertise and imagination. After being guests in +130 countries, we're well qualified to provide highly personalized hospitality you'll fondly remember for years to come.
