House Rules

Welcome! We are glad you are considering our wellness retreat as your new temporary home! We hope you love, enjoy and care for our beautiful home. We want your stay to be memorable. Please do not hesitate to ask if you need anything.

We ask you to leave your shoes on the rack inside the front door and avoid the shelves, cabinets and closets with “private or “do not disturb” signs; those are our personal items. No loud parties please, there is a family with a small child that lives behind us. There are live plants please open the shades during the day. If you lounge on the white sectional, we provide large quilts to drape over them. No food in living room. Beware of leaving food out anywhere, it draws ants! No smoking in the home, we have a bench on the front porch you can use.

House is clean, but very small. Suitable for 4-5 max. Residents live in the back of the home and obviously are not happy that this home is rented. Both houses share the driveway. They divide the use of the driveway by weeks, so if you book the house on the off week your out of luck for parking. On the usage week, it's still a problem because the driveway is narrow, and the deal is for you to park against the house so the neighbors in the back can walk by your vehicle. I rented an SUV, making it impossible to park against the house. Neighbors in the back were rude knocking on the door complaining. This is the owners permanent residence. There are strict rules posted in every room. Ex: Take your shoes off at the front door. Put a blanket on the sofa before you sit on it. Be sure to read the fine print. There is an ant infestation, so you are not allowed to leave food out. The owner hounded me about my departure time the day prior to departure (during my sisters graduation)so she could return home asap. Well... ,, she returned home prior to my check out and me cleaning the house. I arrived after her to clean, but things got out of hand. Needless to say there wasn't much to clean up, but with the strict rules I felt like I had to scrub the house down of fingerprints. My family didn't feel welcome. We would have been better off staying at a hotel. Felt like we were under surveillance. Bad trip to celebrate my sisters graduation.

Response from Eugenia Bowman And Kampol:
Sometimes it just is not possible to please a guest, and not everyone can get in the groove with our home. This group was definitely one of those cases for us. After reading the manual, and covering it via text before the visit, we were criticized about the guidelines we state for folks to care for the house during the rental. They had some scheduling challenges, and we didn't know until the morning they were leaving what time they planned to evacuate the home. They said one time, and when we arrived to meet them, they were not there. When we entered the home we were alarmed to find that the oven was left on, and soiled dishes, pans with grease left on the stove, and sweet pastries and fruit out, even though we urged them to refrigerate food. We were also shocked to find out that they didn't lock the back door. Finally, during the visit they blocked the driveway for the couple that live on the back of it, although we coached them about how to park. We received a complaint and had to call, but they criticized us when we had to ask them to move their car over a bit since the elderly father couldn't pass.

Good house for a large group, although we did worry about the young child. They have a lot of personal items in the house that could easily get damaged by children.

Eugenia's is a cosy spot that was ideal for our out of town staffers to stay and with enough room to cook and meet. The only important note is that Eugenia requests no eating in the living room which put a cramp on us snacking during our meetings :)

Thanks, Margot for honoring our needs. The white couch is pretty but inconvenient, yes. You folks did a great job on the house! I hope your meetings went well.

Kampol was excellent, a wonderful person with an incredible house. We had a wonderful stay here and I would definitely recommend this Tranquility Retreat House. Kampol was also great with communication.
