In accordance with zoning ordinances and/or to address problems that have occurred with past guests, the following additional rules are enforced:

1) MAXIMUM OF 4 UNRELATED GUESTS (i.e., not related by blood, marriage, or adoption) due to zoning restrictions on single-family housing.

2) MAXIMUM AWAKE-TIME VISITORS on the property is one per paid guest at any given time (for example, if you have 5 paid guests then you can have a maximum of 5 additional awake-time visitors the house at any one time). If you anticipate having more visitors than paid guests then you must obtain written permission (to do so, write to me with the purpose for the visitors, the total number of visitors, and the day/time range that they will be visiting).

3) QUIET TIME is 10pm to 7am. This is a quiet family neighborhood; if the neighbors can hear your voices or your music from their property then you are too loud.

4) INTERFERING WITH THE SECURITY SYSTEM IS PROHIBITED. This includes tampering with, disabling, repositioning, or covering the cameras or security system equipment. (The cameras are positioned to watch all entrances/exits from outside of the house; there are no cameras inside the living area of the house itself.)

Most guests followed these rules even before they became explicit rules, but those who didn't have upset the neighbors. Therefore, failure to comply with these rules can result in police involvement, eviction, and/or forfeiture of the deposit. Please note that the neighbors are aware that this is a short-term rental and I have encouraged them to call the police and/or me if problems arise. That said, follow these rules and everyone will be happy. :)

Impressed with the house, but not the cleaning service.

  • 3 of 5

We had several problems with cleanliness of the property - it just wasn’t clean. There was a problem with the downstairs toilet running and Jason Hans very quickly had this repaired. Jason was very apologetic concerning the property not being cleaned. It is my understanding he was changing cleaning services after this. The layout of the house is great. However, I think there should be a tv in the family room / den, where we spent most of our time. The tv room is too small if everyone is wanting to watch tv together.

Owner's Response: I apologize once again for this disappointing experience. As noted, there were problems with the cleaning service--although they started out terrific, after a few years the cleaning had become progressively worse over the last few months, so I made a change shortly after Diane's stay. The new cleaning service has assured me that I will not have the same problems with them. Time will tell, but thus far they have been terrific.

Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

Jason was very easy to communicate with, and the entire process was smooth from beginning to end. The property location worked out perfectly for us; near a grocery store; close enough to downtown without being immersed in the heavy traffic areas. We will definitely recommend this place for any friends/family looking for a place near Lexington.

The home was very clean and neat.

  • 5 of 5

Lots of conveniences. Nice back porch and we were even provided the garage door remote and the garage was accessible. The stereo system was also a great plus.

The down side was low beds and landscaping that needed attention.

In all we loved the house and enjoyed the stay.
