• Arrival time is before 7pm, no later please. You will be met in Greve and shown the way to the house and given the keys. Departure is between 8am and midday.
• The house is for 4 people plus one extra couch bed at an extra charge. Please state how many you will be.
• Be nice to the next guests, please replace anything you use including the kitchen basics, toilet paper, washing machine and dishwasher products.
• Please respect a clean house. You're paying a small cleaning fee which is to put the house back to the state you found it in when you arrived.
• Use water reasonably, specially in hot weather. The house is supplied by a natural spring in the woods opposite and pumped up to a tank as required. In normal use (one reasonable shower a day for 4 people spaced out by ± 15 minutes) there is no problem. If it does run out just wait, it will come back.
• If you want a cleaning service during your stay, this can only be arranged on Saturdays.
• Please don't waste energy. If the weather turns cold the heating will kick in automatically so keep the front door and windows closed in cold weather.
• If you have any kind of problem or need some help please call on the landline as mobile reception is not good. Other calls from the line will be charged for.
• Invite your friend for dinner but no large, noisy parties please.

Just enjoy a unique location and respect a private house.
