House Rules

Follow pet expectations that were expressed in the listing.

AC temperatures should not be adjusted any lower than 68 degrees, as this would freeze up the unit. Keeping windows and doors closed will keep the unit from overworking.

Adjusting the refrigerator temperature should not be necessary. In our experience when you load an empty fridge full of food it does take some time to adjust. Please give it overnight before reporting that it isn’t working.

NO smoking inside the home. When smoking outdoors, do not throw cigarette butts in the yard.

Do not expect refunds for issues you did not allow us to resolve. Express your emergent concerns and we will do what we can to make things right.

The fire pit and bbq grill have a few things to note: The county does put burn bans into effect when necessary. There can be no fires burning outside during burn bans, but grilling food is permitted with caution and suggestion to keep cover down as much as possible. When using the fire pit or grill, ashes should not be dumped into the yard. We have supplied a metal can for you to clean out the grill after use.

No more than 6 cars should be parked at the house without permission. The use of neighboring lots for parking is not allowed unless we have directed you to do so. We can usually allow more cars but we need to know in advance.

Do not use bath towels for cleaning floors, outdoor recreation, makeshift indoor/outdoor rug, or dirty pet shammy towel. Towels are ONLY for use for bath and shower needs.

Nothing except toilet paper should be flushed down our country septic system. Condoms, wipes and tampons will get stuck in the pumping system and we will know you flushed them which will result in a bad review for not following the house rules.

All guests of legal age are required to sign a liability release form before entering the premises. If you do not receive information about this automatically after booking, please bring this to our attention so that we can complete this as quickly as possible.

CHECK OUT INSTRUCTIONS As this is not a hotel - and is rather, our home - we ask that you tidy up after yourselves and return the home to the way that you found it.
1. Gather all used towels and washcloths into one pile.
2. Collect any dishes from around the house and outdoors. Please check the grill area for utensils and/or pots that were used while grilling.
3. Empty coffee grounds into the trash and wash the pot & basket.
4. Wash all used dishes and return them to their places. Please do not leave a load in the dishwasher.
5. Return remotes to the table nearest the TV they belong to.
6. Anything that has been moved should be returned to its original location, especially furniture (this includes outdoor furniture). Plug in any lamps, televisions, extension cords, or appliances that may have been unplugged.
7. Pick up any of your trash from all yard spaces. If grill was used, ashes should be emptied into the metal trash can provided.
8. Toss, or take, ALL food, drink and condiments from fridge/freezer.
9. Bring all trash to the dumpster, located near the main road.
10. Pay the pet fee for any pet you had with you. (Leave cash, or message for Venmo/Cash App)

The space
The wraparound porch will lead you to the entry of this home which takes you into the house on the upper level. You'll step into the updated great room that has a dining table, island bar seating, kitchen and living room. The master bedroom is on this level with an attached master bath and an additional side room furnished with a twin bed. The second bedroom has a king bed and there’s a shared bathroom on this floor as well. The upstairs outdoor balcony has an amazing panoramic view of the back yard and river.
Going downstairs, this portion of this home includes a kitchenette, dining area, living room, laundry space, three bedrooms and a bathroom. There are lots of bed options provided in these rooms, including two bunking areas, and a bedroom that has a king bed and twin daybed, with trundle. There is also access to a patio area leading out to the yard. The set-up is great for multi-family vacations.

Important note: The stairs to the lower level are unusually shallow. If anyone in your party has trouble with climbing stairs, they may need to plan to stay on the top level, which is the entrance level.
Guest access
Guests are welcome to the entire area between the two fences. The driveway is shared with other rentals.
Additional notes
Stairs
The stairs to the lower level are unusually shallow. If anyone in your party has trouble with climbing stairs, they may need to plan to stay on the top level, which is the entrance level.

Kayaks
Experience more of the river as you paddle up and down the Guadalupe with your family! Code for on-site kayak storage will be given upon request. For safety purposes, please return to storage and lock up after each use. Fees apply if not returned to storage before departure.

Pet Policy
Pets are allowed, but please keep pets off of furniture and beds. Bring your own pet beds and towels; do not use our blankets and bath towels for pets. Pets are not allowed to roam free while outdoors since the yard is not enclosed. It would be expected that you would clean up after your pet outside. The pet fee is $30 per pet and we ask that you leave cash upon checkout or contact me to send payment. Additional fees could apply if we find that your pet was allowed on the furniture or beds; if we find it was left unnecessarily messy because of the pet; or if we find damage to any part of the home.

Linens & Towels
Clean, fresh bed linens are always provided. King and queen beds will be made, but bunks and twin beds will have linens neatly placed to be made by guests, as needed. We will also provide the towels needed for bathing and shower needs, but these are not for use at the river. Please plan to bring your own beach towels for after your outdoor water activities, and/or for your pets.

Ice & Water
This house has a country water well. Some guests have mentioned not liking the taste of the tap water so we mention this as a suggestion to bring your own drinking water. There are no ice-makers in the home so make a plan for any necessary ice as well. There is a self-serve ice machine conveniently located at the front of the property, near the road. It has the lowest price of anywhere on the river and sells 10lb ice - either in bulk (directly into your ice chest), or in bags. It also dispenses fresh drinking water if you have containers. In seasons of prolonged low temperatures, this machine is disabled to winterize the equipment.

Paper Products
We provide a standard and reasonable amount of toilet paper and paper towels at the start of your stay. Depending on your group size or length of stay, plan ahead for additional paper products that your group may need.

Televisions
TVs are provided in living spaces and some bedrooms. They are equipped with Roku devices to access cable and you are welcome to sign in to your own streaming accounts.

Grill
A charcoal grill is available, but you must provide your own charcoal, lighter fluid, and matches. (County burn ban does not apply to outdoor grilling)

Fire Pit
You will have to provide your own firewood for the fire pit. You are welcome to forage dead wood on the property. Campfires are NOT allowed during a county burn ban. Please check the status of the burn ban at the Comal County website.

Dumpster
A dumpster is located at the end of the driveway near the road. Guest are expected to remove all trash from the house before departure.

Large Groups
I have other rentals nearby! Perfect for larger groups who need more sleeping room. If interested, please inquire.

PLEASE NOTE BEFORE BOOKING
This is an older home and it is not perfect. We are continually fixing and upgrading the home as things are brought to our attention. We are in a rural area, with lots of trees. We periodically spray the perimeter of the home with strong insecticide, but insects will still manage to find their way inside from time to time. This is normal for a home at this location.
Pictures of the home may show past decor and furniture; including exterior sitting areas. When things go missing, or are broken, we do our best to replace them with similar items. Sometimes we wait for seasonal updates.
Guest interaction
I am always available by messaging.
