Общение с гостями
I like to greet my guests when possible, and ask guest attention for a quick, 5 minute tour, but once keys are exchanged, guests are the only ones in the house. I stay at our other property a half mile away, and am available 24/7 for issues or questions.
I do have an office on the property that I may stop into occasionally and feed a studio cat. ( It's a studio/outside cat, it never goes into the house).
Другие важные подробности
*Renting the home means for your main guests only. It doesn't also mean additional events or parties of people other than the guests on the reservation. We do allow some events, but I have to know in advance and if approved, there will probably be an additional fee and insurance. If you're planning on having anyone at the home that are not on your reservation, I need to be notified.
*Pets: We generally allow pets but evaluated on an individual basis. A Pet fee is usually required and is estimated on an individual basis.
*We do allow children under most circumstances, but I do need to know in advance. There are some special guidelines for children that I want to make sure parents are aware of. And if you bring children, you're expected to ensure that home and safety rules are followed.
*By booking you agree to follow the house guidelines and to make sure your guests are aware of them.
-I like to greet guests when they arrive, give the key, show them around, answer any questions.
-For many reasons, I do like to meet each guest! It makes their stay a better one and the process more comfortable for all, so if you have arriving at varied times, please inform me.
-As stated elsewhere, we do allow SOME additional events and parties with permission, generally for a fee and all guests will need to follow these guidelines. Keep in mind our limit on cars.
-We take pets on an individual basis and with heir own rules. Contact me if you'd like to bring a pet.
- I stay just a mile away at my partners house, and am available by text 24/7 for issues or questions.
-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 are obvious or closed off. Guests should respect host areas and belongings.
-Do not move any of the major pieces of furniture.
-The liquor shelf and some food shelves items are off-limits, and will be marked or obvious. Guests may use all spices and condiments.
-Absolutely no smoking of cigarettes or cigars in the house, but outside is fine. There are ashtrays in front and back.
-Cars: Please keep vehicles to a maximum limit of 4. Consider carpooling or discuss with me if you absolutely need to have more vehicles. There's room in front of the house, street parking is relaxed. But as a courtesy to neighbors, try to park most cars in front of the house as close together as possible. And when leaving the drive, remember there are sometimes cars parked across the street, so be careful.
-We take up to 12 guests, but that doesn't mean a bed for each. There are 5 rms. with beds (4 inside, 1 out), two couches and air-mattresses available. All blankets/linens on beds are clean. There are also plenty of clean extra pillows, blankets, sheets, towels, etc. There are two bathrooms/showers, (one inside, one out).
-I have an office on the property. Though I generally try to respect guest privacy, I may stop by to feed the studio cat or occasionally do a little artwork. You shouldn't notice if I do.
Austin is a clean, environmentally-conscious city. Please join us in limiting waste. We 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? :
-It's a good idea to leave the key in the mailbox if you have a large party that doesn't always stick together, or have it with you in a secure location. Lost key charge is $25.
-Please lock all doors before leaving the house, minimize AC temp. and turn off all appliances (coffee-maker!).
-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). No loitering, loud talking or partying in the front yard at all.
-Backyard and Porch music and loud noise should cease by 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!
