Interaction with guests
We respect your privacy but are available to help answer questions, give suggestions or interact as wanted.
We live upstairs in the house and sometimes in the early evenings spent in the garden with our kids (6 and 3) and two very well behaved white german shepherds. We do have our separate private deck on the 3rd floor where we tend to retreats around dinner time, so you will often have the garden by yourself.
Other things to note
Single parking spot included in the price. Please use the left driveway spot (furthest from the house). We use the right spot to charge our electric car.
We're child-friendly! Child/Baby chairs, cribs, stroller, book & toys available upon request.
There is no need to check-in with us when you arrive! We will send you a digital code to your door the day before your arrival. So when you come go through the garden gate to the right of the house; walk down the side of the house (towards the shed), and your door is in the back of the house. There are newly installed LED lights to show the way! The house guide (available once booked) shows pictures.
We do our best to accommodate early arrivals and late departures, but our place is popular so most time someone else is staying in there before and after you. If that is the case, then you can at least store your belongings in our shed. Note! While shed is very private and in our yard, it is not locked, and we do not take responsibility for lost items.
No smoking (including in the garden).
Socialized dogs allowed - We have two white German Shepherds living on the property.
We are a small family with two kids: Harry(3) and Josephine(6), two Dogs and one cat. We live in Somerville, MA, USA. We rent out our great in-law apartment in Somerville, MA, USA as well as out ski cabin in Crans-Montana, Switzerland. We also use AirBnB when we go on family vacations.
