Interaction with guests
Experience has shown us that the vast majority of people who book our rental have a plan or schedule for their stay. We meet all guests on arrival, give a brief tour and review of house rules, answer any questions they may have about the rental or the area, hand them the keys, and tell them that we are a phone call and 10 minutes away if they need anything. This has worked well, guests enjoy their privacy.

We all had a wonderful time, this home was a home away from home and offered anything you could possibly need. Sherry was great to work with and was very timely in any questions I had prior to my stay.
