Other things to note
A dog lives here during the winter. She rehairs once a year. If it happens close to your stay, there may be a few hairs which we didn't catch - so it's not a place for people with dog allergy.
Please no smoking inside the house. There is a sheltered area in the garden for outdoor smoking. We would appreciate it if you could observe the recycling guidelines in our area. There are separate containers for plastic, glass, metal, paper, bio and other waste. Kindly remove circulars and so on from the mailbox. The neighbourhood is very quiet on Sundays, e.g. lawn mowing is not allowed. It would be a great day to have a barbecue on the patio or just lie in the sun in the garden and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Our guests have commented that it is a very tranquil and relaxing neighbourhood so please keep it that way by not making any unnecessary noise if you arrive home late at night.
