There are hangers and plenty of room to store your clothes in closets as you wish.
Children's toys in loft & basement:
Feel free to use the toys, but please have them picked up and back in place upon checking out.
Each TV is powered by a dish Network remote so working each one is the same. Please ensure each remote is put back where you found it. The master bedroom has a tv in the armoire (remotes located inside of armoire) There are directions in each room for working the TVs, and the blue ray players located in the living room,
master bedroom and basement. Each Cardinal baseball game will be recorded by the DVR if you're interested in watching and you miss the live action. There is a blue tooth speaker in the kitchen you are welcome to use and in the master bedroom.
Skeeball. There is a power cord between the pinball machine and skeeball on the floor. Tap it with your foot to power on the skeeball. To start a game, the bottom front right area has a small black button. Push the button and the balls will release. Please keep wooden doors shut next to the skeeball to ensure the windows don't brake upon an "errant throw". Doors can be opened anytime skeeball is not being used. Please turn off power when not in use.
Pinball. The power button is underneath the right front side of the game. To play, hit the start button. To play from 1-4 people, hit the start button as many times as there are players. Please keep ALL drinks and food off the machine. Please turn off power when not in use.
There are some board games in the cabinet left of the fireplace and darts on the other side of the stairs.
Workout room. Children should not be playing on equipment. Adults feel free to workout.
Office area in basement is off limits to guests.
Kitchen/Bar. Use the fridge and freezer as needed but discard any items at the end of your stay. The ice maker does not work on the fridge but there are 2 bags of ice in the freezer for your use. The beer tap is off limits, and is not furnished with beer anyway.
Fireplace. Please do not turn fireplace on.
TV's. Use as directed.
NO GLASS IN THE BACKYARD. There are plastic cups in the basement and kitchen panty/cupboard to use instead of glass. Also, there are several plastic plates in the upstairs kitchen cupboard and I've provided paper plates as well.
NO DIVING FROM EDGE OF POOL.
NO MINORS ALLOWED IN POOL without supervision of an adult at all times.
NO FOOD IN POOL.
NO loud parties at night. The pool maybe used in the evenings. Please just be respectful to my neighbors.
DO NOT change pool temp. It is kept at a very comfortable 86 degrees. All pool floatation devices and toys are housed under the stair/screened in patio area. You are welcome to use any and all of them. You may blow up the ones that are still in the packaging if you like. Towels are located in the basement bathroom closet. Please be sure all pool toys and floats are out of the pool nightly. The pool skimmers will get blocked if left overnight.
Pool light: there is a pool light you can turn on. It is located on the panel on the wall of the pool equipment. It is the 3rd button down from the top. Hit it once the light goes on, hit it again the light goes off. Please turn it off at the end of the evening.
Pool service: I have a pool service every Wednesday. They check the chemicals. So don't be surprised if you see someone back there on a Wednesday. They just help themselves through the gate and go about their business.
Lights on umbrellas:
Green umbrella lights can be powered on by plugging them in on the outside wall electrical outlet located outside just right (as you are facing) the back door.
Dinning table umbrella lights:
Plug the extension cord into an electrical outlet located inside the screened in patio. The electric outlet is located just left of the sliding door (as you are facing it) behind the tall plant in the corner.
Grass cutting: I have my grass cut every Friday. They take only 15 minutes front and back. Just a heads up.
Trampoline. To ensure safety for all. One jumper is advised at a time.
BBQ. Feel free to use the BBQ but brush off clean upon when finished. Once cooled, please put cover back on (recommended at end of evening or in am).
Storm. If there is a storm. PLEASE put down the umbrellas and tie the green one down. Thank you. The outdoor furniture will dry pretty quickly the next sunny day.
Trash can and recycle bins are the only items for guest access in the garage.
Do Not park cars in garage. Please use the driveway and street parking.
