What is a guesthouse?
A guesthouse is a really great alternative to a hotel or motel. It’s for travelers who prefer something a little more than the typical room containing a couple of beds facing a television. Each guesthouse is different from one another which differs significantly from the hotel industry. The uniqueness of each place adds to the travel experience. Many guesthouses are less expensive than hotels and may even have full kitchens, potentially saving you money on food costs while you travel.
Should I book through you directly or through airbnb, VRBO, or some other 3rd party site?
If you want to save money, book through me directly.
Can I stay here with my hypoallergenic dog?
I’m sorry, but no. I have entertained the idea of buying a hypoallergenic dog myself, and in my research, I discovered that there’s no such thing as an allergy-free dog for everybody. I grew up with extreme skin allergies and asthma and want to provide an allergen-free space for others with similar afflictions. I don’t mind if a dog stays outside the entire time, either on the front or back porch, assuming you clean up after him.
How do I pay you?
I’ll attempt to meet up with you the day you arrive or at the earliest mutual convenience. If by some chance we don’t cross paths, I will run your credit card remotely. I prefer to swipe the card however, because it saves me in fees and is more secure.
You provide candles? Aren’t you nervous about the house burning down?
The candles that I provide are enclosed in glass and hang on the wall, safely out of reach of any drapes. The candles are tea candles and only burn for approximately 2 hours.
What do I do when I check out?
I don’t expect you to make the bed, sweep the floor, etc. on the morning of your checkout. Please enjoy your last morning at the house. It’s a small house and takes 3 hours to clean whether you clean up or leave it as is. That being said, it is pretty helpful if you do the dishes, or at least soak them. And since I often don’t make it over to the guesthouse right away after you leave, I do like it when you keep any wet towels hung up, so they can air dry.
