Interaction with guests
The last 4 digit of guests phone numbers is the key safe code number, guests can enter the retreat any time ensuring privacy at all times. The retreat is tally private and one floor of my home. I work most days so I am not home often but guests may see me in the garden from time to. I am not far away so guests can call me any time or just come to knock on the front door should they need something or need some local information.
