As a family with three young children, we understand just how difficult it is to travel with all the things children need. The house has toys and books from toddler age to elementary. Additional items available for use are pack n plays, a single and double stroller, travel high chairs, a travel exersaucer, changing pad with cover, and a video baby monitor. If you need any of these items, please let us know in advance so that they can be set out and ready for you to use. Since many families do not need these items, we do not leave them out at all times.

Host

Travis
Owner
I’m an Assistant Principal at a local Middle School and my wife is a teacher and mom to our 3 off-the-wall kids. My wife and I love volunteering our time, and between the two of us, we have coached everything from volleyball to football, directed student leadership initiatives, and tutored students after school.

In my spare time I love to travel, work on cars, go boating, and relax with my family. My favorite international travel destinations have been Germany, the Netherlands, and Italy (when my wife and I went backpacking for a month!) These travels led me to an understanding of what amenities guests truly need when traveling and how to be an accommodating host.

We are excited to be first-time hosts and open up our former home to guests looking for a little R&R. My wife and I are devoted to making your stay as comfortable and memorable as possible, so if there is anything at all I can do to earn your five-star rating, be sure and let me know. As parents, we know how difficult it is to travel with children, and we want to do whatever we can to make your stay more enjoyable. If you let us know the ages of your children, we will do our best to make sure there are some games, books, and toys that they will enjoy.

House Rules
Welcome
As your host, it’s our goal to make your stay as comfortable as it can possibly be. Our mission is to help our guests create beautiful memories with our cozy home. For an optimal experience for us both, we’ve spelled out some house rules. Thank you in advance. We truly appreciate appreciate your cooperation!
Rules
• No pets or service animals allowed due to our family's health concerns (documented asthma and severe pet dander allergy)
• You must clean your own dishes, otherwise a $15 cleaning fee will be added to your booking. This fee does not apply to dishes left in the dishwasher upon checkout. There is detergent for you to use in the dishwasher and dawn for hand-washing as well.
• Only the guests noted in the booking are allowed on the premises. A $50 charge (per guest per night) will be added for every extra guest not mentioned at time of booking. More that 8 guests will incur fee of $25 per guest, per night.
• Shoes are not allowed to be worn inside the home.
• Please turn off the AC when you’re away.
• No parties or events.
• Check-in is at 3PM or after by lockbox and check-out is at 10AM. You will be charged an additional $25 for every 15 minutes late for check out unless pre-approved by the host.
• If you throw a party, an extra cleaning fee charge of $100 -$200 will be added to your booking and you may be asked to leave the property early.
• A $25 charge will be added for lost or stolen keys.
• You’re not allowed to eat in the bedrooms.
• Please refrain from making noise past 11PM (Website hidden by Airbnb) There is absolutely NO SMOKING or VAPING. There is to be NO tobacco or marijuana use in the home or on the decks/lawn of this property as well as no pets allowed. We have a young child with severe asthma and is also allergic to pet dander, and we ask that you respect her health by following this rule.
• There are exterior security cameras present on exterior of the home and in the garage for security and guest safety. Do not move or tamper with them.

If the cleaners have to clean up your vomit or other bodily fluids on anything (linens, the floor, etc.) they consider this biohazard cleanup and charge an additional fee for using extra cleaning methods. You will see this fee come out of your security deposit and you will have a fee to replace the item/linen that needed to be discarded/replaced.

We are parents and understand that life happens, but if the tv or furniture gets broken, mattresses/linens get ruined, you decide to take the towels with you, etc. please know that we will charge you the exact price to replace each item.

Our house is still on the market, so I have blocked out Tuesdays for cleaning/showings. To book the house for an entire week just message me.

For your convenience, we have left detergent for both the dishwasher and washing machine. We ask that you please put all dirty dishes in the dishwasher and start it before you leave. Please put all used towels/wash cloths in the washing machine with a scoop of detergent and start the washing machine before you leave. Please take all bags of trash out to the outside trash bin. Due to local sanitation rules, do not dispose of diapers into the outside trash unless they have been placed in a bag first. Do not strip the beds or worry about remaking them. Our cleaners will take care of all of that. Lock all windows and doors and return the key to the lockbox when your stay is finished.

Guests may access the garage, but this area is used to store owners' personal property. It is asked that guests not touch/use any owners' property in the garage. If you see something in there you really need, please ask.

If anything is broken or damaged or simply isn't working properly, please report it to us ASAP so we can lead you through the steps on how to work it (like the TV) or we can replace whatever is damaged before our next guests arrive.

The metal barge dock has some inherent safety risks associated with it. There are places that one could fall and get injured. We ask that no children under 10 be on the dock and every person uses the private dock at their own risk. There is a large public dock at the park about a 10 minute walk away that is much better suited for children.

Our property runs into the Ohio River. The current is strong and will take you under. Swimming from our property line is dangerous and not permitted.

If the cleaners have to clean your vomit or body fluids off things (linens, the floor, etc) they consider this BIOHAZARD cleanup and thus charge an additional fee to dispose of/replace any items and use additional methods of disinfecting the home. This fee will come out of your security deposit. No smoking No pets No parties or events. Check-in is anytime after 3:00 PM.
