Frequently asked questions:
What is your pet policy?
We do not allow guest to bring pets. Dogs have occasionally visited, but no cats have been in the house. We always have the house cleaned before rentals. We have four goldfish ourselves, which stay indoors in the winter and in the outdoor pond in the summer.
Can I smoke in the house?
No smoking in the house. But you can use the back deck.
How do I know what is for shared use and what are personal effects?
We want you to enjoy the home as you would your own. Some of the cabinets and closets have more personal effects and are admittedly a bit messy. But we lock away most of our personal effects.
Your listing is for 4 people, can I add extra.
We typically lock the office to keep some of our personal effects out of your way. But that room has a futon and it can be arranged to rent out the 3rd bedroom for a small additional fee.
What do with my car? What if I decide I need a car?
We can arrange a street parking permit in advance. If find you need a car after arriving, we recommend Enterprise, which will pick you up.
I’m bringing dress cloths but I noticed you lock your closets. What should I do?
While we are keeping our closets locked for your sake, we leave a few hangers in each room and there are hooks on the doors.
Do I need to do anything special with your tankless hot water heater?
No. The hot water can take up to 30 seconds to warm up as it is not coming out of a pre-heated tank. But otherwise it works the same and it has a direct gas line so there won’t be interference with other appliance.
How can I be sustainable when traveling?
Good question. You’re in the right place. We use eco-friendly cleaning products. All the recessed overhead lights are LED. We also are leaving reusable grocery bags by the front door that you can use. And you can recycle and compost if you wish. Also we recommend the bike share in Alexandria and if you bike you are welcome to use our bike helmets in the closet under the stairs.
