Before you leave:

  • Kitchen: empty out the fridge and cupboards of food you brought with you (DON’T leave it for the “next guests”)
  • Wipe out the fridge
  • Wash and put away all the dishes, pots and pans and silverware you used, leaving the kitchen clean. Empty the dishwasher.
  • Trash: If you are checking out any day other than Sunday or Monday, please don’t fill all the trash cans as the next guests need room for their trash, too. On Sunday night, bring the trash cans out to the curb, across the street for Monday morning pickup. If you don’t want to do this, please let us know in advance so we can send someone to do it. Before you leave, make sure you have emptied all trash cans (kitchen, bathroom) into the cans in the garage.
  • Bedrooms: If you used a bed, pull the bedspread down so we know it was slept in
  • If you did not use a bed, leave it made up
  • Top bunks and extra beds such as futons, air beds and pullouts–strip the sheets and place them in the laundry room
  • Wet towels should be put in the laundry room
  • Outside and Garage: If you brought it with you, take it home. Don’t leave cigarette butts, beer cans, etc. on the ground
  • If you have a dog, do a dog doo-doo patrol before you leave and remove the poop (we don’t want kids stepping in it, please!)
  • Other notes: If you accidentally broke something and you booked direct through us it will most likely be covered in our insurance we paid for just for your stay. PLEASE LET US KNOW about broken items, we can’t fix them or replace them if we don’t know and this is not fair for the next renters!!!! If you didn’t book through us, breakage will be covered by your security deposit.
  • If you put things up using tape, please remove the tape from the walls, windows, counters or where ever you used it
