Enjoy yourself! That's the main condition!
Let us know about any extra goodies you may need or of any malfunctions that we can fix. We are truly committed to making your stay as comfortable and memorable as possible.
( 10$ per pet/per day: PAID DIRECTLY TO HOST AS AIRBNB HAS NO CATEGORY THUS FAR)-- we love 'em and have hosted many on our property. We have a beloved shepherd that we can fence in to allow separate free roaming. Since we don't take a damage deposit we do charge 10$ per day per pet for the requisite extra cleaning and wear and tear concerns that we've had to contend with over the years, including intended or unintended yard duty, furniture damage and even being sued by the super allergy-prone!
A NOTE ON POSSIBLE additional TAXES-- 8.75% state and city of up to 12.75% may be required in addition to the nightly. This category, too, isn't automatically assumed via AirBnB and would be remitted directly to the host.
A FEW ECO-REMINDERS:
Please off heaters and all lights-- coffee maker, microwave light, etc. upon leaving.
Be cautious about splattery cooking next to the sofa bed. The cooking shield should help.
Lock both cottage door and back gate when leaving on McCollum Place alley.
Feel free to load and unload at McCollum Place entrance, mindful of neighbors' parking spaces, BUT park on Scott Ave. or Benton Way.
Feel free to sweep and keep tidy and/or ask us for the vacuum or mop if desired. For long term guests, we're happy to come in an do a guerilla cleaning gratis if you'd like!
If the fire pit is used, make sure the fire is out before vacating and avoid putting burned logs on the patio.
When using BBQ, please be aware of any dripping grease onto the patio flagstones that might get stained.
WASHER/DRYER (up garden path to upper concrete patio with curtain enclosure):
When using the washer, please gauge the amount of laundry and set to small, medium or full load (stuff as much in as door will allow for this.)
For DRYING, we use the lowest setting mostly, never past Permanent Press and get good results, even with setting to "delicates". Try and finish any washing/drying before 9 p.m. on the top patio, please, so as not to disturb other guests.
TRASH: can be put into black (garbage), blue (recyclable) containers on McCollum Place alley (out gate to left) or call us and we can disperse. Also, if needed, trash can be brought up yard to side of other cottage or to garden can. Or leave in bag to the side of main door on brick path at Benton Way main entrance.
