Late arrival

  • Arrival until 7pm is free of charge
  • 7-9pm: $30 surcharge

We agree on meeting at the vacation home. We can arrange for your pick-up elsewhere - for example at the airport - but such services are neither included in the rental fee nor in the mentioned charges for late arrival.

 

Return

On the day of departure as stated in the booking confirmation the rental period ends at 10am; late return may be charged.

Please leave the home as clean as it was handed over to you. Final cleaning will be charged if the premises are not returned in mint condition.

Please do not forget to clean the BBQ, the range, and the microwave oven if you have used it.

Please strip the used beds and place used sheets, towels, and bedding on the floor in the laundry room.

Please do not remove any electrical plugs of equipment, devices, and appliances from the wall outlets.

 

Wheelchair-suitability

None of our homes are wheelchair-suited.

Also we hold that they are not suitable for people so frail that they cannot overcome an obstacle like a regular size step.

All of our homes have steps from the outside to the inside and a step from the garage into the interior.

Besides, our places don't come with the standard of at least 32'wide doors throughout.

 

Pets

As we do not wish to grieve people with sensitive scent or those who are allergic to pet hair we strictly reject all rental inquiries including pets of any kind. Pets are not permitted to the premises.

 

Smoking

Our places are non-smoker rentals. Please do not smoke in the house.

 

Grocery and consumables

Generally we hand over our homes devoid of food. You may find some seasoning, salt, sugar, coffee, even tea, but there is no guarantee.

There is a good chance the place provides some stock of soap, detergent, toilet paper, propane gas and the like; however, it is not our policy to regularly check and replenish such consumables. Consumables are not included in the rental fee.

A ride to the local "WalMart" takes about 15 minutes, it is opened around the clock, even on most holidays. Follow this Link to Google-Maps.

 

Cable-TV

We decided against a subscription to cable-TV. If the duration of your lease exceeds 1 month, we may subscribe to a cable program of your choice on your behalf. Please ask for details.

It is our feeling, that the era of cable subscriptions has passed. Read more on the subject in The Atlantic: Triumph of The Tablet and The Atlantic: There Goes the Cable Bundle and The Atlantic: It's Here: ESPN Without Cable, The Denver Post on Cutting the Cord.

Our homes are equipped with antennas for digital TV reception. As of April 2017 around 20 programs were available on air. Check with the FCC for current information.

We suggest guests stream their TV live over the internet. Sources for Live-TV include: Sling, DirectTV, Verizon, Dish, Hulu
