Interaction with Guests
We love to meet our guests, but that is no always possible, so lockbox and access code procedures are available to give you easy access to our home.
We are locals, so we'll be just a phone call away if you need anything at all. We have staff standing by if you need anything fixed and so ensure you have a perfect stay!
We allow smoking, but only out on the balcony. Please feel free to use and consume any pantry items you find, replace if able. Please "respect the wood" as Larry David suggests on HBO, we do provide coasters everywhere to make this easy. Please refrain from using sun-tan lotion and/or oils inside our home, as the spanish tile absorbs these and stains easily. Use the ample supply of towels (beach towels are included) freely, but remember to bring them back to the property. Enjoy your home away from home!
