THERMOSTAT: As you enter the upstairs from the garage, the thermostat is located to the right as you enter the hallway that leads to the bedrooms. Adjust it for your comfort. Closing the blinds with the slats slanted up during the warmest part of the day will help to keep the rooms comfortable. When you arrive, it will take a little while for the great room to cool down on hot days, but it will cool down! The bedrooms and bathrooms will cool down fairly quickly. New heat and air-conditioning was installed in 2014! Please reset the thermostat to 80 degrees when you leave at the end of your stay.
TV: Press the large red “On” button on the Dish remote to turn on the Dish box. Press the small red “On” button if the TV does not come on with the large red button.
WASHING MACHINE: The water may have been turned off to the washing machine located in the utility closet in the great room. The faucet to turn it on is located right next to the machine.
CLOTHES DRYER: Please use the dryer only when you will be in the house. Never leave it running when you are not at home.
OUTDOOR ENCLOSED SHOWER: I know you will enjoy it! Motion lights for evening showering! Please be careful to latch the door securely, including placing the bolt through the hole in the latch, after each use so it will not be damaged by the wind catching it.
OUTDOOR GRILL: Bring charcoal and your fav grilling tools! Also, mitts, meat thermometer, PAM grill spray, perforated grill pan, or anything you like to use!
PLASTIC ADIRONDACK CHAIRS: Please stack the plastic Adirondack chairs and secure with bungees on both decks before leaving to go back home to keep the wind from blowing them off the deck!
TRASH PICK_UP: Trash pick–up is Monday and Friday. The trash can and recycle can are located beside the outdoor steps (or out front at the street). There is a brown can for garbage and a blue can for recycling. The trash truck comes early in the morning so be sure you have the cans set out the night before. Please place the cans on the right side of the driveway as you face the road (not under the tree on the opposite side of the driveway!).
KITCHEN: Please use only water or Cerama Brite (provided) to clean the stovetop. Other cleansers may scratch the surface. Unplug all the small appliances in the kitchen when you vacate. There are cleaning products under the kitchen sink and bathroom cabinet. There is a large garbage can in the utility room located in the great room. Bags for that trash can are on the shelf above the can for your convenience. If you clean the floors during your stay, please only use a mixture of vinegar and water! There is a Shark hard floor vacuum with pad in the closet across from the entry door.
WINDOW BLINDS & HOUSEKEEPING: Please close the window blinds in every room, with the slats slanted up. Thanks in advance for tidying up before you leave!
BRING: Beach chairs and umbrellas, bed linens, towels, soap and shampoo (bring extra for the outside enclosed shower if you like!), pillows (some there, but bring your favs if you like!) bicycles, grilling tools, etc. We hope everything will be to your satisfaction.
