First, welcome to our home. If there is anyway we can make your stay more comfortable we'd love to hear about it! The following are some rules both general and specific.
1. PARKING: There is plenty of street parking but please respect our neighbors by attempting to park in front of the property parallel to the cactus garden wall on the east side of the street.
2.ENTRANCE: Please follow the driveway up to the first set of French doors and open to enter the garage. As you walk up you will see a red fence to your right. there is a lockbox attached to the post. I will provide you a code in your welcome message. I know it's not a gorgeous entry but your private courtyard awaits through the next door. On the opposite wall you will see the laundry facilities (right) and a door on the left. Beside the door you will find a lockbox. Please use the code provided to you to access the lockbox. There are two keys one for this door and the second for the front door of the studio.
The doors to the garage must remain closed at all times to insure that our dogs do not make an escape.
3. The yard you enter is yours. There is a gate separating the studio from the main but it can remain closed for your privacy and to keep our dogs from your space. We have a 10 pound terrier, Trout and a 100 pound Great Dane, Henry. Both are overly sweet and love everyone but we will keep them away from your vacation as much as is humanly possible. If they bark, let us know and we will fix it but neither bark all night , etc.
4. We have a loft in the studio it is accessed by a sturdy but antique ladder. The loft is for you to use AT YOUR OWN RISK. You are welcome to use a folding ladder from the garage if it makes access easier and you'd like to use the loft.
5. There is no garbage disposal so nothing goes down the drain in the kitchen.
6. Our toilet is low flo so please flush a few times for solid waste. No wet wipes EVER. Please place all feminine products and excess paper in the trash can and the cleaners will take care of it or you can toss it away. (See 7.) If you use wipes then discard them here. Our plumbing is delicate so please follow this one :)
7. There is a garbage can in the bathroom and a garbage and recycling under the sink. Feel free to fill them and empty them into the appropriate receptacles outside garage door if they get too full. Brown is garbage, blue is recycling. Please note that this is part of your duties as you check out.
