Other Things to Note
Er zijn twee trappen naar zolder, sommige mensen ervaren die als steil en smal, voor hollandse begrippen zijn ze normaal!
Mocht u echter ouder of slecht ter been zijn of om een andere reden moeilijk trappen kunnen lopen, denk hier dan wel aan.
In- en uitchecktijden zijn (nog) flexibel, dit betekent echter in overleg, of waar mogelijk, anders geldt uitchecken 12 uur, inchecken 4 uur.
In huis wordt niet gerookt.
Ik woon in een rustige buurt, ik verwacht van mijn gasten hier respect voor te hebben geen harde muziek, zeker niet na 10 uur s'avonds.!
Als je weggaat doe dan de verwarming en verlichting uit, om de wereld leefbaar en groen te houden.
Als je vertrekt laat het huis dan achter zoals je het bij aankomst aangetroffen hebt, opgeruimd en zonder afwas!
Alleen toiletpapier door het toilet spoelen, wordt er toch iets anders doorheen gespoeld, dan is dat direkt hoor en zichtbaar!
Wasmachine alleen in overleg met mij aanzetten, er kan snel iets foutgaan.
De houten vloer is gehorig, graag schoenen uit.
