Main rule- Just enjoy and take care. Piano is covered and protected when not in use. All hardwood is newly finished. Most guests choose to go shoe less creating a dust and allergy free interior. Kitchen and house must be left in moderately clean condition with dishes washed and appliances clean - otherwise an additional fee may be assessed. Smoking area is outside under cover - but is not allowed inside. The air inside and outside the house is fresh and clean. You can smell the ocean air especially during low tides in the morning.
The house is for peaceful stays only. The neighborhood is especially safe, and on a quiet extra wide street with very few cars, - great for leisurely walks.
I have a business in Cambodia where I have been working since 1996 manufacturing products. During my time there, I have a great assistant here who helps me mange this location which is only about 2 doors down from where I live (in a very small studio).
I stay in hotels all over the world and know exactly what I like and have tried to duplicate that here- plenty of clean space with all the amenities- wifi, great clean bedding, quiet night's sleep, total privacy, no clutter and a kitchen to make my favorite comfort food. I am also a trained musician with two grand pianos- but only one in this house. That is the main thing I miss when I travel, but I assume it is just nice to look at even for those who do not play.
My favorite travel destinations recently have been private beaches on the coast of the Baja Penisula in Mexico. I wake up daily trying to appreciate what is good, and making sure I appreciate that before tackling all the things that need work. I also pride myself on keeping my word in all things and treating people right.
When settled in I most appreciate natural food and entertainment that fulfills as well as entertains.
