Interaction with guests
Owning another property at the lake, I am often in the vicinity when guests arrive. If not, guests are informed beforehand as to where to pick up the keys. Whether there or not, guests have my mobile number if they need to reach me, and I also provide the name/number of the local caretakers in case there are any issues that need to be addressed.
