Guest have private access to a large garden with two decks; upper deck has 2 chaise lounges and a dining table and 4 chairs. Lower deck has a gas BBQ grill.
Depending on the length of the guest's stay, we will need to arrange to get access to the garden to do weekly maintenance. This will be done at the guest's convenience and usually takes about an hour or less.
Interaction with guests
Guest retrieve keys in a lock box left in the mailbox so that there is no coordinating necessary upon arrival and departure. If guests need directions or help within the apartment, they need only to contact us by phone/text/email and we will come over to assist.
Other things to note
The garden requires regular maintenance (watering, weeding, trimming, cleaning) so depending on the length of the guest's stay, we will need to arrange to get access to the garden to do basic maintenance to keep it looking its best (depending on the season). This will be done at the guest's convenience and usually takes about an hour or less. This is necessary more in the summer and fall and little to none in the winter.

-No smoking indoors, but we have a big deck outside if you are smokers
-For longer stays, thorough cleaning by cleaning lady available @ $80/per cleaning. Just let us know what day/time you would like to schedule the apartment to be cleaned and we will arrange it.
