You must disclose at what time you are planning to arrive when booking. If it's too late at night, we may not be able to accommodate you. If you don't disclose the information, your reservation will be canceled immediately. International guests: Please make sure your visa/work permits are in order. We cannot refund your money if you are unable to come because your paperwork was not in order. If you are booking far in advance because of work/study issues, please be aware that if things change because of whatever circumstance we are not able to give you a full refund. Please understand that we have kept your place for months foregoing other bookings. The policy is that if you let us know a week in advance, you will receive 50% of what you have paid. Also, the money that you pay upfront to secure the place is kept by airbnb which handles all money transactions. No smoking indoors, only on the deck. No pets. Come and go as you please. No loud music please. Own housekeeping during your stay. Linens, towels and kitchen linens provided. We leave you with enough basic supplies such as toilet paper, coffee, etc., but if you need more, the understanding is that you will buy them yourself. That is how we keep our prices low. Coffee, tea and cocoa provided free. Additional breakfast for initial morning can be purchased for an additional fee of $10-20. Only 2 adults allowed - You must include the second person at the time of booking. IF YOU BRING IN AN ADDITIONAL PERSON (besides the up to 2 initially specified) YOU WILL BE EVICTED IMMEDIATELY. THIS IS FOR YOUR PROTECTION AND BECAUSE OF CITY LAWS. THE PLACE IS TOO SMALL FOR MORE THAN 2 PEOPLE. Please be aware that we work during the day and cannot always let you in before 5 pm on the first day. We will make every reasonable effort to get you in as soon as possible. Finally, please be mindful that this is a guest house, NOT a hotel. We are better than a hotel because we offer way lower prices and a place that is like home. However, please take care of the place, don't shine your shoes with the towels (we provide a shoe-shine kit) and just generally be as mindful as if you were staying in a relative's home. Thank you for your consideration.
