Additional information about rental rates
I don’t like rules - in fact, I spend considerable time and energy challenging authority. But while you’re here, kindly observe the following “guidelines”:
* Smoking is allowed outdoors only.
*Pets are welcome with a 100.00 non-refundable deposit
*Check-in time is 4:00 pm and check-out time is 12:00 pm unless otherwise approved. An early check-in may be arranged based on availability. A late check-out may be arranged based on the severity of your hangover.
* We try to maintain quiet(er) hours between 11pm and 9am - so please do not operate your fork lift or park your helicopter during that time.
* Please be respectful of my neighbors. Guests who repeatedly disturb other guests or
neighbors will be asked to leave and will not be provided a refund. Gatherings that include six or more non-residential guests require my prior approval.
*Note this unit is best suited for four occupants, but can accommodate six with a queen-sized air mattress (available upon request). Any additional overnight guests beyond the maximum are subject to an additional $50.00 per night fee.
Finding free street parking within a block or two is rarely a problem, but please be advised that your vehicle must be parked along the curb at least 20ft behind the street’s intersection or you will get ticketed and/ or towed. We are not responsible for damage to vehicles, or damage or loss of property left in parked vehicles, regardless of location.
If you should have any further question please don’t hesitate to contact me, anytime. And call me if you get into any trouble...so I can join you!
I look forward to hosting your next NOLA adventure!
