The lawn is cut on a bi-weekly basis. The trash is picked up on Monday mornings. However, we do have pesky dogs that get into the cans so we ask that you please include a dose of ammonia in the bags when you set them into the containers. ALL trash must be bagged in black trash bags.

We have fresh linens on the beds when you arrive, and ask that you wash/dry any linens you use and remake the beds when you leave. In lieu of this, you may opt to have our housekeeper do this for a separate fee paid directly to her.
