Please keep all doors and windows shut if using the air conditioner. If there is condensation on the windows the A/C is set to low or there is an open door or window.


Some of the properties are on a well and septic.  


For any property on a well the water is processed through a 3- tier whole house filtration device to remove all possible contaminants including a filter for tannins prior to being softened and then sent to the house. Once in the house there is an additional mini all house filter attached to the refrigerator water functionality which includes a UV filter. The water may come out cloudy, that is simply the filtration process bubbles and the water will settle.

Please consider all houses to be on septic and use only septic safe toilet paper.  Do not put baby wipes, feminine products, or food down any drains or toilets.  If a clog is caused by such items, the costs of a plumber will be passed on to the guest.
