D – Who will run the house?
With a large group, it is important to have someone in charge. You, the guest signing the lease, can personally take all of the responsibility for the rental and guest questions during your stay. After all, it is your security deposit. You may not want to take on this responsibility directly. Some tenants choose to delegate this to one or more of their guests. We call this person the “House Captain”. The chief responsibility of the House Captain is to read the House Manual and assist fellow guests during their visit with. Although I would encourage everyone to read the manual it is impractical to expect all guests, especially children, to read the manual. The House Captain becomes the responsible person in charge of the crew. The House Captain (or Captains) should also be knowledgeable of technical matters for the internet, stereo, and thermostat questions among others. All you need to do to include people into the Captain’s role is to share their email and we will CC them on all correspondence.
We recommend that you save the manual onto your iPad or phone for easy access. To do this open the document in Safari or Chrome. Choose the Square Icon with the arrow going up. Select the Glasses Icon to add to Reading List. You will then have a copy of the manual you can access by clicking on the book and selecting the Glasses Search Icon.
From time to time I will send all our tenants email blasts with important information in order to not have to do individual emails. Make sure you view any newsletter from us and please set your spam filters to accept our emails. Please forward any pertinent information to your House Captain.
Let us know if you have any further questions.
