As my husband and I live in the home, we appreciate our respectful, quiet guests that will live by the rules as follows:
We will provide you with basics as detailed above, but expect that you will bring your own personal items.
We request guests to remove shoes upon entering the the house and eat only in the dining room and kitchen to keep the house clean for your health.
Please provide your own food and beverages. If you would like to use the fridge and kitchen to cook meals, please let us know when booking.
Please do not remove items from other rooms to take to your own without asking. However, you are very welcome to take any reading materials, magazines, etc. for use during your stay.
You are welcome to use our laundry facilities up to one time per week.
You may not invite additional, unapproved guests to stay with you in our home.
We are busy, private people so thank you for understanding this and we wish to respect your privacy as well.
If you have loud intimate needs, this is not the best choice for your stay.
No illegal activity of any kind.
No smoking, including e-devices.
No pets, no parties or events.
We do not accept third-party reservations - only registered guests will be allowed on the property and if the person making the reservation isn't present, everyone has to go!
We reserve the right to ask for identification at your arrival or any point in your stay.
Please do not leave unwashed dishes in the sink or dishwasher. Food (especially bones) or trash should be dumped into the trash can, not into the sink and ground up with the garbage disposal. If it becomes clogged as a result of this behavior, guests will be charged.
Most importantly, when entering and exiting the house, please make sure the cats do not get out as they are indoor cats without collars!
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund. Cancel within 5 days of your trip and the first night is non-refundable, but 50% of the cost for the remaining nights will be refunded.
Husband and I have lived and worked in the DC area for more than 10 years. Some of our favorite places are Positano, Italy and the Outer Banks of NC. We love the water!
We also love good food, good wine, and cooking with groups of people.
