If you arrive after dark there is a street light that lights the parking area and the switch for the lights on the porch is just inside the laundry room which is adjacent to the entry door with the lockbox. Damages: Our rental policies require that your security deposit is held by credit card and we reserve the right to charge the credit card on file for any damages or missing items as necessary. We will contact you regarding these damages and payment. Should an accident happen, please call us immediately to let us know about it. During Your Stay: This home is NON-SMOKING!

Trash pickup is on Tuesday so please put your can out early for pickup. If you check out on Sunday, please put the trash in the can and roll to the street. Turn off lights and fans when away from the unit and when you leave - helping to keep the utility bills down for our owners allows us to keep our rates lower.
