Your special suite was a part of our mid-twentieth century home & remodeled with space enough for our one or two reserving overnight guests. We respectfully request inquiries do not ask to increase that two person limit. I have recently adjusted my age restrictions to 25 years for account holder & 21+ for your guest. I need to know if there are any health conditions or sensitivity issues before booking for your safety & comfort. I will be honest if you'll have problems in our suite, so you can have the opportunity to book elsewhere. Many guests forget to inform hosts and then everyone is disappointed.
NO EXCEPTIONS TO THESE RULES.
I encourage guests with family or friends living in the area, arrange for a pre-booking or pre-arrival "suite tour" . Just email me to contact Airbnb to allow them to forward my phone number to you & you can have someone you trust inspect the suite beforehand.
Only one vehicle per reservation allowed. Please do not ask to increase this restriction. There is a reason for our choice to limit vehicles parked in our private driveway & we do not make exceptions. New outdoor security cameras for your safety.
Everything is space saving & comfortable without wasting any room or crowding the one or two guests. Please leave sporting goods such as golf bags, clubs, bicycles & large items in your vehicle. We may arrange some on site garage or screen porch storage if we are informed ahead of your arrival. The suite doesn't have extra room to store these items without impeding or overcrowding your pathways. We need & want you to be safe.
You will not have to put up with noise from anyone above or below your suite. Just two steps up or down, indoors & outdoors, it is slab on grade construction, with separate private entry & deck access just for our guests. Check all photos, they are very accurate.
No lower level musty basement smells, no pets or children live here.
But we do, so we are only forty feet away & can assist with anything you may request during your stay.
Perfect for sensitive/allergic guests. No pets, service or companion animals are allowed, due to my allergies & yard is not pet friendly. NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE.
For my parent/grandparent guests, you may have family with children visit during your stay. They may never be unsupervised or left to roam the yard, it is not child friendly.
No children under 21yrs.are allowed to stay in the suite or visit for more than a 2-3 hours once during your reservation. No child daycare allowed in the suite.The suite is not set-up for children & the property is not child friendly. NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE.
You will always be greeted when you first arrive regardless of check-in weather or time. I am very flexible for your convenience. Since I communicate with my guests a few times before actual arrival, my guests have time to introduce themselves, their accompanying guest & get to know me long before they arrive. After guests check-in there will be a 20-25 minute walk thru "suite tour" to show you what the suite provides & how things work. During the "suite tour" guests get their personal "key code" for the digital door lock system. Once you get that code it is yours forever. No other guests will have the same code.
I do not text. I use my computer & cell phone to communicate. My Airbnb hours are daily from 10am to 2pm & 5pm to 10pm. If you want quick responses to any questions please use the scheduled times. But my cell phone is always fastest anytime of the day or night.
After you arrive, I try to communicate daily via phone or emails to check guests needs or to help improve their stay. I am just 40 feet away & will help any time of day, my cell phone is the fastest way to contact me. I only check my emails from 10am to 2pm & then again after 5pm to 10pm everyday. I do not text. I think speaking with you is faster & easier.
You need to bring your own laptop computer & printer. There are Wifi & power strips available in TV room & bedroom at vanity & desk.
Please conserve - turn lights off at night - the suite has many night lights that are motion sensors & thus no need to leave all the lights on all the time. Thank you for turning them off at night while you sleep. If you need the lights on at all times please tell me during the suite tour. This would be good to know before you begin your stay.
It is very important that any health conditions that may affect your stay be disclosed before booking a reservation. Guests need to be mobile enough to navigate 1-3 stairs in the yard & suite. The standard bathtub includes the shower & needs to be stepped up into for use.
No oxygen machines or other bulky health care devices are allowed, there is little extra space to operate & store those devices safely. There would be a danger for oxygen devices, since the suite is steps from the flames that supply the boiler & water heater in the locked mechanical room.
When you arrive your "Suite Tour" takes a few minutes & will cover most of your need to know subjects, an additional set of house rules are on tv room desk. I need to explain safety features & the "how to" operations of the suite for your comfort. I do not feel comfortable hosting guests when they do not let me give them information about the suite. Your comfort & safety is most crucial in a strange place. The door lock key code is given only after the "suite tour" is completed. Please allow for my 20-25 minute tour.
Your suite is a perfect size tiny home, only(3) stairs to navigate throughout, with your own private entrance area.(It is slab on grade level, not a moldy or noisy basement or an attic conversion) The suite is a separate wing of our home, closed off by a security door to my office & hobby room.

Because our normal neighborhood has occasional, daytime hour noise levels,as well as temporary, infrequent home maintenance , we'll try to complete our projects while you are away from your suite.
