Otros aspectos destacables
Because we have a pool and small plants, these need regular maintenance. Pool maintenance occurs weekly every Friday morning. This will not disrupt your stay in any way and you will not be responsible for letting the worker in or out. The gardeners usually don't come when guests are there but occasionally they might have to, but similar to the pool maintenance worker, you will not have to disrupt your routines to allow access.
The property contains exterior security cameras. However, guests have the option of disconnecting the power to these cameras upon check-in.

Check Out & Damages Charges:
Below is a departure checklist and we ask that you follow it and leave the property in a neat and tidy condition. We don't ask our housekeeper to wash dishes, move large items of furniture around or clean up after pets, so we request that you wash, dry, and put up all dishes used and return all furniture to its original location. The booking cleaning fee does not include the yard, pool, and property/ sand dune area trash. We don't like to make claims on damages but if our cleaning staff has to spend additional time above and beyond their allocated hours to make the property ready for the next guests, we will charge for the additional time by deducting the fee from the Renter’s security deposit. Please note that any minor damages and extra costs induced by neglect that occurs on the property during your stay will be deducted from the security deposit. This includes missing linens, towels, kitchen utensils/materials, etc. We don't expect you to fix any pre-existing plumbing issues, but if you use brute force and break a door knob or a faucet then we have no choice but to claim reasonable amount against the damage charges.
• Remove and discard any opened food items from the refrigerator and/or microwave. Please check that the coffee maker and toaster-oven are cleaned of any left-overs.

I am a Puerto Rican wife, mother, and high school English teacher living in the Pacific Northwest. I enjoy reading, especially on a beach! I love to cook for my family and mentor youth. I am a passionate educator and I leave my blood, sweat, and tears in my school and classroom. So I fully understand the importance of getting away every once in awhile...of escaping, if you will. And for me, a beach in my homeland is the best way. And I love be able to share that with others!
