House Rules
As a host, I aim to make your stay as comfortable as it can possibly be! Our mission is to help our guests create beautiful memories in our cozy home. For us to do so, we would truly appreciate it if you can follow these simple House Rules. If there is any reason the House Rules cannot be followed, you, our guest, have the option of cancelling the booking in accordance with listing's Cancellation policy. Thank you in advance and truly appreciate your cooperation!

House Rules -

- An obvious one: please don't park or block neighbor's driveway.

- Please do not rearrange furniture.

-Absolutely no parties or events. If guests are found to have had a party which resulted in extra cleaning, guests will be responsible for extra cleaning charges ($100 minimum charge) and in the unfortunate event of the disruptions alerting neighbors, GUESTS WILL BE ASKED TO VACATE THE PROPERTY IMMEDIATELY without reimbursement.

- Certain pets may be allowed. Please contact us for pre-approval. Double cleaning fee will be charged to all reservations with pets. The pet fee must be paid 24 hours before check-in. Non-payment will result in no access code or reservation cancellation. Reservations with undisclosed pets will be charged double the pet/cleaning fee. Dogs to be crated if left unattended. Owners are responsible for picking up waste & disposing of it.

- Kids safety is the responsibility of their parents/guardians. We do provide a safety gate on request to separate the kitchen and basement stairs from the living quarters, but we don’t provide any special amenities for kids’ safety such as cabinet locks etc. Cleaning supplies/household chemicals are readily available/accessible in the kitchen, few flights of stairs here and there. Please make sure kids are being supervised.

-There is NO video security system or other surveillance devices inside the house. There may be video surveillance equipment installed outside the house for enhanced property security.

- QUIET HOURS - 9PM - 9AM. As the house is in a family neighborhood, we ask that you keep noise outside the house to a minimum from 9pm-9am. Any reports of noise violations from neighbors or through the City of Cedar Rapids code enforcement will result in a $300 charge (and we'll likely lose our rental license). We've had previous guests ignore this and have had police appear to shut down the noise.

- We may leave consumables such as condiments or snacks left behind by previous guests if they are not empty. We try our very best to ensure that it is not expired or stale. HOWEVER, ultimately, it is up to the guests' discretion and inspection to consume these items if they wish. The host does not take any responsibility for the consumables.
