Interaction with guests
The house is locked and the key is in a keybox outside of the front door. When you have made the last payment, I become your e-mail from TripAdvisor and send you a welcome letter including the number to the box. Then you can let yourselves in. However try to meet all my guests upon arrival, explain where things are, where the router password is, show how the heating works etc. To make this possible it´s helpful if you send me a SMS when you´re there. I live nearby and can be there quickly. I don´t mind my guests asking questions about possibilities and what the vicinity has to offer. The welcome letter has some information about what one can expect and some tips.

Yes, it would have been nice to see you, I tried more to reach you than you tell. I´m sorry that we had missed something in the cleaning process but this is one of the reasons I try to meet my guests. Perhaps next time.
