We expect that our guests care for the house and our private items inside. We want to return to the very same house as we left. Our caretaker will see to that the area outside the house is tidy and maintained. He is the one you can inform if something is out of order or malfunction. He also can help you with information and do some errands as well.
Smoking inside the house is not allowed.
We are a retired couple who now and then rent out our house. We have a "houseboy" living in the property, who maintain the house and keep the surroundings clean. he might help you with any information and other small needs. He also close and open the gate at night and morning. We have three small dogs watching the property. They are very friendly and are used to visitors coming and going daily. Ronny will guard the dogs and he is the one taking them out when they need a walk.
