The house uses a Netgear Nighthawk router to ensure a WiFi signal through the thick walls.
The property also has a fire pit for an evening fire-side night cap, as well bicycles for guest who would like to take a leisurely ride around town.
La Escapada has a 50" TV on a mobile cart. The TV is set up for access to online content ONLY (no cable).
There are a number of apps pre-loaded on the TV. Netflix and Hulu have existing subscription services for the house and will be logged in. You may choose to buy/rent a movie on the Amazon app if you have an amazon account and wish to buy it yourself (if so, please remember to log out).
We originally listed the house for 6 people - the sofa transforms into a bed with dimensions of 83" x 45", which is larger than a twin, but inside of a full. Therefore, it's a little small for two adults who are not a couple.
No parties, events or photo shoots unless expressly agreed to in writing. Special rates for events and photo shoots may be available upon request.
WE WILL ONLY ACCEPT RESERVATION REQUESTS FROM INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE PREVIOUSLY RENTED ANY PROPERTY ON AIRBNB AND BEEN POSITIVELY REVIEWED. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Our minimum stay is typically 2 nights, but it's increased to 3 nights on select dates.
