Other things to note
The ceilings in the apartment are 6.5 feet high and can comfortably accommodate guests around 6 feet tall, but might be uncomfortable for very tall guests.
Additionally, as this is a basement garden apartment, there will be some noises from the apartment above which is also an Airbnb rental during the fall, winter and spring and a longer term residence during the summer. Due to the construction of the building and the level of soundproofing between the floors you may hear foot steps, some talking, TV and mechanical sounds from the upstairs unit (water/hvac). It is part of the house rules for guests above to be conscientious and considerate of guests in the Maya Garden Suite, but there are some sounds that cannot be controlled and just come with the property design and construction.
We will enforce the house rules and say something on your behalf if guests above you are being blatantly disrespectful and loud, but this situation is rarely an issue. Please let us know if you feel the guests above you are being too loud, especially after 10 pm.
Please no smoking in the house. Feel free to sit outside on the patio to smoke. No pets are allowed in the house. Due to the noise travel between the floors, we ask that you keep noise to a minimum after 10 pm so as not to disturb the guests above you, especially if you are traveling with children.
For general security purposes, please keep all exterior doors locked at all times when you are not entering or leaving the building. Please close windows when air or heat are on to conserve energy.
