A little bit burned out from this slow season and having to turn down many potential party guests (march break and st. patricks), I was thinking to change my house rules that are very generic (like many hosts around here)
Today, I come across to this house rules, I like it. What do you think of it, as a guest.
"We prefer guests over the age of 25 unless you have previous, positive reviews. We screen last minute bookings without previous, positive reviews. Before sending a booking request, tell us more about yourself and the reason for your stay. Rule number 1, enjoy the space and have fun. Here are the rest in detail. Please do not smoke indoors. You are welcome to smoke in front of the property on the front sidewalk but please do not throw butts onto the street. Parties are not allowed in the apartment and no outside guests are allowed without previous approval. If you would like to have a guest over please touch base with us for approval. We want to keep our other tenants and neighbours happy so that we can rent to other great people like you. Please remove your shoes while inside of the apartment, and be mindful that there are other people living on the floor below you. Also, be careful with suitcases so that the walls do not get damaged. Use coasters with drinks on surfaces so that the wood does not get damaged Use placemats under laptops and dishes as well to protect the surfaces you are working and eating on. Make sense? Please do not use our white towels to clean up spills, remove make up, etc. There are cleaning rags and paper towels for cleaning spills and cotton pads in the mirrored cabinet in the bathroom for removing make up. The extra linens in the apartment are to help us get ready for the next guests. We will leave the required amount of linens for you and your guests. Please do not use the extra linens in the apartment. If you need something extra, please let us know. Noise must be kept to an absolute minimum between the hours of 11pm and 7am. We are sorry for all of the rules and details but we host people from all cultures and from all over the world. What may seem like common sense to you is foreign to someone else. We prefer to be clear so that everyone is aware of what we expect. Finally, let us know if you need anything at all during your stay. If you find something missing or need anything, please let us know and we’ll do our best to make sure your stay perfect. Hope to see you soon! "
