House Rules

Please keep noise to a minimum after 9pm and before 7am as this is a residential area and neighbors and wildlife appreciate the peace and quiet.

This means, absolutely no parties.

The house is strictly no smoking.

Please don't invite non-guests to the house. The house is for your use alone.

Please don't use candles in the house for fire hazard reasons. We suggest bringing a flashlight for the occasional power outage.

Please don't bring stray animals into the house or feed them anywhere on the property. Similarly please don't put food out for the wildlife.

Due to the septic system in the house, please don't throw paper or other items into the toilet, please use the bin provided.

Please don't put anything other than water into the shower drain, bathroom sink or kitchen sink.

Please turn off the air conditioning and lights when not in the house to conserve power.

Although Paunch is a very safe area, please close and lock doors and windows when away from the house including the downstairs storeroom door.

We also suggest that you don't leave valuables outside on the verandas when not in the house, in order to keep your belongings safe.
