Общение с гостями
It's a 'shared house' deal, I come with it, but as host and guide. I try to make sure people get whatever experience they're looking for. For the most part I'm not even in the house, but an outside studio.
-Host areas: When I'm not renting I do live here, so I've balanced the house to be livable for myself, yet attractive for guest use. My personal items are stored and out of the way and those places should be obvious or they are closed off. Guests should respect host areas and belongings.
-You'll notice some very nice linens on the beds. They can be damaged from sleeping with benzoil peroxide or other hair and face products. If you use these, you know what I mean. So if you damage the bed linens, you will be paying for them, so be careful and respectful.
-Do not move any of the major furniture without asking first.
-The liquor shelf and some food shelves items are off-limits, and will be marked or obvious. Use common sense and be respectful.
-Absolutely no smoking of cigarettes or cigars in the house, but outside is fine. There are ashtrays in front and back.
-I'm a sci-fi/fantasy book illustrator and there's a hall gallery of art. If imagery from this genre offends you, you may want to consider staying elsewhere.
- Everything on the beds are clean. There are also plenty of extra pillows, blankets, sheets, towels, etc. There are two bathrooms/showers, (one inside, one out).
Austin is a clean, environmentally-conscious city. Please join us in limiting waste. We take environmental impact seriously. Please consider a booking of rental to be a pledge to recycle while you're here:
-Recycle. plastic bottles, paper, metal cans in the clearly marked bin. Tissue.paper towels, and plastic bags are NOT recyclable. Once full, it's contents can be emptied into the large blue bin on the side of the house.
-Minimize wasted energy by turning off lights, or minimizing the Central Air/Heat or Air-Conditioners.
We thank you for your responsibility while staying here, and Mother Nature thanks you!
COMING AND GOING? :
- Lost key charge is $25, be careful with it.
-Please lock all doors before leaving the house if no one else is home.
-Please don't take cups, dishes or anything else off the property without asking.
-Guests should be made aware that any lost items, any damages, may result in a deduction of the renters deposit.
-Please be open and honest if something breaks or is damaged.
- Guests should feel free to enjoy the party areas, but keep trash and noise to the INSIDE of the house or the BACK yard, not the front!(Austin City Ordinance).
-Backyard and Deck music and loud noise should cease by about 1AM. Feel free to be as loud as you want inside.
-Please KEEP GATES CLOSED! So Shelly doesn't get out!
- Shelly is a 100 pd tortoise that roams the yard begging for apples and eating grass. She doesn't bite, apples are left for feeding if you desire. She also eats banana peels, (without the hard end), fruit, berries and just about anything else but acidic things- peppers, oranges, and onions, plastic bags and socks (which she'll eat if left out) She should of course be treated respectfully. Guests adore her.
-Enjoy your stay and remember, it's very important to me that you enjoy yourselves, so if I can do anything for you, please don't hesitate to ask!
