My place is close to the beach, with a short walk to the sand. Enjoy 3 outdoor, private, spaceous areas with dining. Guests have remarked about the quiet, relaxing atmosphere; how it's a "nice get-away from the hustle & bustle of the boardwalk". There are so many choices! You can even request private art and yoga lessons. Easel and supplies are available for those who dream of painting and exploring their creative side. Certified massage therapists make house calls here in VB too! #zen
We ask that you leave our home the way you find it... With a few exceptions: Leave the sheets on the beds and the towels on the bathroom floor. We sanitize everything before and after each guest. You shouldn't be doing laundry on vacation! But if you need to, you are welcome to use the washer and dryer. We have detergent and necessities for you to use.
The cleaning fee is for sanitizing and laundry. Airbnb isn't like a hotel stay. You are expected to vacuum, clean up and leave the house as you find it. Please understand that this is our home. You can expect to find it in extreme clean condition. Plenty of supplies are at your disposal for cleaning up any messes or spills, as well as broom and vacuum. You can expect your full deposit back by following all these guidelines. I never thought I would have to spell it out like this... But my home has been left very badly... Fortunately, with the exception of a few, our guests have been awesome and respectful. Oh, and here's a weird one... Please leave the furniture in place! Really.
We ask that you please treat our home kindly by rinsing off all sandy feet, bodies and items when coming from the beach. There's an awesome, private outdoor shower, with hot and cold water, as well as a garden hose.
Please be dry and sand free when sitting on furniture or beds. There's a huge quilt on the sofa for lounging... it helps keep it white!
WE ask that you shake off your beach towels and leave to dry outside on the hooks provided before laundering.
Smoking in the cottage is not allowed, but ashtrays are provided outside.
Please rinse dishes and place in the dishwasher. If you need to wash some while you're here, we supply the detergent.
Please take or throw away any opened food / containers that you may have in the refrigerator. Please bag all trash in the bags supplied before you leave. Trash cans are the large black ones through the back gate on the half street.
Please do not leave the air conditioner running with windows open. And we'd prefer the windows stay shut. (We hate those huge bugs that like to come in... it's part of living near the beach) Make sure you don't adjust the A/C more than 2 to 3 degrees at a time... it will freeze up... and not work.
We have 6 people set as the max on our reservation booking. However, when you ask and wish to bring additional guests and we approve the number, there is a $50 per person, per night fee.
I'm an adventurous artist who loves the beach! Family, friends and fun are priorities. I'm heavily involved with the art community here in VB which is why I created First Friday ViBe in 2014. I'm a Christian who is blessed and grateful I don't "fit the mold"! I love the people here in VB. We have so many great restaurants to choose from and there's always live music at every turn.
