Interaction with guests
I live at the property in apartment at rear of main house and I’m available as needed. There is a code for the side door into the main house which I’ll provide the day before your arrival. I will leave you an information sheet with map and details about the house and neighborhood. I’ve lived in the neighborhood for most of my life, and this house for over 30 years, so I can usually answer any questions you have about the area.
