Interaction with Guests
We are available to our guests for any needs/wants they may have, but we respect their privacy and will not be in contact with them unless they request it.

Other Things to Note
The home is graciously appointed with a fully equipped kitchen, luxurious 620 thread count bed linens and wonderfully heavy weight bath towels!!!! The deck is private, large and boasts a mature Meyer lemon tree from which our guests are welcome to pick lemons. The tree continuously repeats its blooming cycle! There is also a peach tree. and a Bartlett pear tree in the back yard from which guests are welcome to pick the seasonal fruit!
We expect guests to keep noise levels down when using TV's stereos, radios and other devices that produce sound. Use of these devices is not allowed after 9:30 pm on the deck. Home must be left in the condition it was when guests checked in: no breakage or damages to interior and exterior of home and all of its contents Please do not wash any bed or bathroom linens before you depart; this will be done by hosts after you check out and return the keys. Kitchen must be left clean; please load dishwasher and run. No smoking allowed in the home or anywhere on the property. Coasters are provided and must be used on all surfaces in the home except in the kitchen. If our guests are traveling with an infant or baby we require that they provide their own portable crib (sometimes called a Pac-N-Play). We require this for obvious hygiene reasons. We have tried to rent a crib when a group needs one, but have found that there isn't a furniture rental company that rents cribs. All companies have to comply with health standards so crib rental is not allowed because infections can easily be passed on from one baby to another. Renters are given a short rental contract to read and sign when they check in. The house rules are clearly stated in this rental agreement and explains that any damages to the home, its contents and the entire property (this includes any removal of items in home and property) must be paid for by the renters from the deposit fee. If damages/removal etc. are above the amount of the deposit, airbnb will help renters resolve how monetary compensations will be handled as per airbnb guidelines. During the almost 4 years that we have rented La Villa Hermosa, all guests have been very respectful of and complied with our house rules.
