No smoking in the house; courtyard ok
Avoid cleaning fee by leaving house neat.
I had taken my house off Air B and B for a while because some Air B and B guests over Jazz Fest caused a ruckus ( loud partying until the wee hours- police were called) and the neighborhood association came down on short term rentals. I've straightened that out but am being VERY selective now for rentals after that. My neighbors are wonderful people, and to think I had unruly guests was quite mortifying. I also decreased occupancy to 4 people to avoid large groups.
