Frequently Asked Questions:
Make the most of your time by reviewing this guide of common questions.
“WHERE DO I TAKE THE TRASH?”
The trash and recycling are located behind the fence on the left of the house. Collection is Friday mornings. The housekeeper will collect the trash upon your departure.
“THE AC ISN’T WORKING!”
The air conditioner is designed to keep the house between 71 - 76. If you set the AC to 60 during the summer, it will never reach that temperature. It is simply a fact of life here in Texas when the outside temperature is 100+ that AC systems just can't keep up. Please be considerate of the environment and avoid setting the AC below 70 in the summer when possible. If the AC isn’t blowing cold air or doesn’t appear to be working at all, please reach out and I will address the issue ASAP
“THE HOT WATER ISN’T WORKING!”
The property uses a 50 gallon water heater. Please allow some time for the system to heat up and bring hot water to the taps. If the hot water doesn’t make its way to the shower/sink in 1 - 2 minutes, please let me know and we can take a look at the system to see if there may be an underlying issue.
“THE INTERNET IS BUSTED!”
It's pretty rare, but if the Internet isn't working, please let us know. Occasionally, the Internet Service Provider may disrupt service to perform maintenance on their network. This typically happens very late at night, but we will give you a heads up if there is a scheduled disruption.
“HOW DOES THE FRONT DOOR WORK?”
The front door is locked, and the entrance is in the front of the house. Use your key code on the side of the door to unlock the door and then you able to pull down on the handle of the door and open inwards.
