We ask for you to treat the home with the same respect as you would your own. - There is a motion detector/video camera on the driveway for the safety of our guests. There are no other cameras on the inside of the home. - Please report any damages to the home or furnishings as soon as they occur. - We discourage moving indoor or outdoor furniture. There are camping chairs in the garage for use around the firepit. The sofa table can be moved near the desk when guests sleep on the sofa.- The sofa is available for sleeping guests only and not intended for other use during your stay. A charge to your security deposit for $50.00 will be made to sanitize and clean the sofa if signs of use are detected. Would you mind not beginning laundry and leaving home?- Only run the washer and dryer when you are at the property. Please do not overload the washer or dryer for maximum performance. - To make your stay comfortable, we keep the cooling system in all three rooms at 70 during the summer. The units are zone-controlled and can be set to your comfort. In the winter, the home is warmed by the sun, and please adjust to make yourself comfortable, for example, 72 degrees. Passive solar home designs can require the use of open windows in warmer winter conditions. We ask that you not leave the windows open while you are away. If you arrive back home and it is warm, open cross-ventilation windows to cool the home for your comfort. During seasonal changes, the AC can be reduced by five degrees at night when temperatures cool and raise five degrees in the morning. - Your safety is our most significant concern. We provide a first aid box, a fire extinguisher in the laundry area and under the kitchen sink. Would you please use the slippers and bath mats provided for use indoors and in bath areas? Concrete floors can be slick when feet are wet after showering. - Should there be a fire inside the home, the lower bedroom windows will be used for fire escape. Removal of screen and opening outwards with window crank is the means of exiting only during an emergency. - Utilize the shoe trays at both entrances and remove shoes when entering. - Guests sleeping on the sofa will be furnished with a butler stand, furnished with hangers, robe, and slippers. - NO COMPENSATION WILL BE GIVEN for any outage of power, water, wi-fi, or television services. Unexpected power outages can occur during any time of the year. Most outages are brief. You will find a flashlight on the wall in the laundry area. Please return to the plug-in after use to maintain the charge. Your rental of The Getaway does not include inviting additional guests or day visitors that have not been listed with the host prior to booking your stay.- We do not allow guests under the age of 25 to rent the property. We offer to meet guests at check-in to provide a short review of the home. - In keeping with our allergen-free environment, we do not allow animals/pets of any kind on the property. If there is a violation of this rule, you will be asked to leave the property immediately. You WILL NOT BE REFUNDED the remainder of your stay as well as forfeit the entire security deposit of $500.00. - The property is smoke-free, with NO smoking of any kind indoors or outdoors, including e-cigarettes. If there is a violation of this rule, you will be asked to leave the property immediately and WILL NOT BE REFUNDED for the remainder of your stay. - From 9:00 pm until 7:00 am, we request this as the quiet time when enjoying the outdoor patios and firepit. - If you are interested in hosting a small event or private wedding on the property, please get in touch with the host for what you envision. The Getaway is an adult property. However, we will consider infants and teens. Please contact the host directly to discuss possible exceptions to our no children policy. - We do our part for the environment. Contact the host if you should need accommodation for additional trash that does not fit into the container. We ask that you join us in recycling during your say and separate all glass, cardboard, Number 2 plastic and Number 1 clear plastic, and aluminum. Our kitchen trash can is small with daily removal in mind. - Please turn off interior lights to the home and gym space when you leave for the day. - The home is on a septic system, and we ask that only toilet tissue be put into toilets. Please do not place "flushable" wipes or any other paper products into the toilets. From the kitchen, please place any heavy grease or oils into the trash can after cooling. Please do not put grease or meat products into the garbage disposal. Crank-out windows on the front of the home can be opened one to two inches for ventilation.- Please close all windows when leaving home at any time. The front windows should be closed during moderate to high winds due to potential damage to window mechanisms, resulting in non-operational windows. Report any damage to windows to the host as soon as possible. Locking all windows and doors before you leave the rental ensures the safety of your belongings and prevents rain and water damage to the inside of the home. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE LOSS OF ANY PERSONAL BELONGINGS OR VALUABLES during your stay. You will find a safe in the home with instructions on opening and re-set your code. - Please use the bamboo snack set and glasses for mornings and evening time on the patios. Avoid taking glass to the firepit area. - The wi-fi is high-speed and suitable for work from home of more than one device. Our guests may enjoy the Spotify music channels, Google Hub, and Nest wi-fi with 2MB speed via fiber-optic service. If you have AT&T, you may have limited service on your cell phone. The house is tucked between two mountain ridges, and we are in the lowest bottom area, which limits cell service. Verizon and other carriers have no issues. - The host does live next door to take care of any immediate needs or concerns. Some animals live on the adjoining property, two dogs and two cats. They can be seen on their daily walks and around the adjoining property. Two Duralogs are available for your enjoyment.- The indoor fireplace season is from October to April. Would you please use the Duralogs for indoor fires? NO OTHER TYPE OF WOOD in the indoor fireplace, please. Failure to adhere to this house rule will result in a penalty of your security deposit total. - We hope you will enjoy our BBQ grill and outdoor burner for cooking fried foods and meats outdoors. BBQ tools and outdoor cooking trays are located under the laundry cabinet. We ask that you do not use kitchen utensils for cooking outdoors. The cleaning brush is under the BBQ grill. Please remember to turn off the propane tank after use. - During the extreme drought, our area can be placed under a burn ban. When a burn ban has been issued, outdoor burning is not allowed. Local law enforcement can impose a fine upon any persons who are burning. - We are adhering to strict cleaning protocol during the COVID pandemic. During this time, we are booking one day off between guests to clean. Please get in touch with the host regarding early check-in or the need for late checkout. If we can arrange for your request, we will do our best. We have outlined our house rules to ensure that each guest to the Getaway has a safe, secure, and most importantly, an enjoyable and relaxing time. Compliance with each of the rules is essential for each guest in the group. We hope that you will have everything that you need during your stay. Should there be a breach of the rental agreement or the house rules, we reserve the right to evict any guest or visitors from the property who refuse to adhere.
