This is our Country-House which, since we are not using very often, you are very welcome to rent and enjoy when we are not there. ;) Here are the answers to the questions that I receive more than 10 times/day (the first six 99% of the times):
WILL I SIGN A CONTRACT AND COMMUNICATE THE ID DOCUMENTS OF ALL THE GROUP-MEMBERS? YES.
Since we declare all these rent-incomes in our Taxes Declarations I really need you to sign a Rent Contract (even if you stay only 3 days) that I will send you by eMail and you will have to sign and send back by eMail. Additionally we also need the info of the National ID Documents that you and all your group-members will bring in your vacation (the local authorities gave all house-owners the obligation to communicate the identity of all their renters since 2012). Sorry, but if you don't complete this step within 48 hours from booking I reserve myself the right to cancel it.
IS IT AVAILABLE? YES.
If the Airbnb Calendar shows the place as Available then you can book immediately without needing to ask me first.
WHAT 'S THE TOTAL COST? THE ONE CALCULATED HERE BY AIRBNB.
You don't need to ask me. Simply select your days of Arrival/Departure and the exact number of Group Members and Airbnb will show you the Total Cost (Bedsheets and Towels excluded).
CAN I HAVE BEDSHEETS AND TOWELS? YOU CAN RENT THEM.
Bedsheets and Towels: 10 euros/person
Just tell me how many you need and I'll update your total cost.
HOW TO PAY? TO AIRBNB.
The Payment Method is the one that you prefer paying directly to Airbnb (as an intermediary).
WHEN CAN I CHECK IN? IT DEPENDS.
It is very important that you tell me immediately during booking your check-in and check-out times. Usually the rule is:
Check-in after 3pm
Check-out before 12noon
But if you ask me in advance I will try to see if it is possible to make an exception.
IS THE "CLEANING FEE" REALLY FOR A CLEANING SERVICE? NO.
What Airbnb calls "Cleaning Fee" is an amount I use only to "redistribute" the total cost to strongly discourage very short rents of 1 or 2 days.
INJURIES AND LEGAL RESPONSIBILITIES
Please know the uninhabited failing structures immediately in the proximity of the house could be extremely dangerous: They could crumble and access to them and to their proximities is strectly prohibited. Please also keep in mind that the Italian Law is extremely clear and specific about injuries/damage during a rent (Italian Civil Code Article 2051): you are the sole responsible for yourself and anyone else in case of injuries/damage caused by objects and places the complete control of which have been given in your hands.
IS IT NEAR TOURISTIC PLACES? YES.
This is a lovely 238m2 Apartment in a three-floor Country-House (with a 210m2 Garden) at a 5-minutes car-distance from the Medieval Fortress Monteriggioni. Less than 30 minutes away from San Gimignano and Siena. 45 minutes away from Firenze.
HOW MANY BEDS ARE THERE?
There are Beds and Sofas for 12 people but even 15 people are allowed in case they are 12 adults and 3 kids staying with the parents:
2 Double Beds
1 Double Hybrid Sofa-Bed
4 Single Beds
HOW MANY BEDROOMS ARE THERE? 3 + 1 EXTRA LIVINGROOM WITH BEDS/SOFAS
1 lovely Living-room upstairs.
1 very large double Living-room downstairs.
1 Laundry Room (the use of which is shared with other tourists renting other apartments in the house)
WHAT ARE THE APPLIANCES/FURNITURE?
1 Washing Machine (in the shared Laundry Room),
1 Dryer (in the shared Laundry Room).
1 Fridge with Freezer,
1 Electric Kitchen,
1 A lot of Wardrobes.
AM I THE ONLY ONE IN THE APARTMENT? YES.
The Apartment is all for you; you don't have to share it with anyone else! But not the Laundry-Room and not the Garden: the Garden is fantastic for lunches and picnics but is shared with other tourists renting other apartments of the House. Same thing for the Laundry-Room.
FREE PARKING? YES.
3 Private Parking Spots (car-sized) in front of the House.
WILL YOU ASSIST ME? OF COURSE.
During your stay I will be constantly available for questions or assistance through The free Airbnb App downloadable in your smartphone or tablet where we can speak for free. Alternatively by phone.
Leaving the House perfectly clean and tidy for the next Guests means that, in the 24 hours before your departure, you must have:
- left the bathrooms "very very clean".
- thrown your garbage in the public garbage containers on the public street near the house,
left no food around that could attract bugs and insects,
- left the refrigerator "very clean".
- left all windows closed to prevent rain inside (but mostly birds and their poop!),
- turned off all the lights (don't forget the Garden lights),
- TURNED OFF THE CENTRALIZED HEATING SYSTEMS!!!
- washed your dishes,
- put everything (objects, furniture, …) back to its original position,
- returned the keys before the Check Out time.
Don't worry! It's faster than it sounds!
