Interaction with guests
I ask my guests to call or text me when an hour away. I will open up the home, show you our house warming gift and where things are to get you settled in quickly, answer any questions you might have and hand you the keys. I am usually 5-30 minutes away depending on family plans. You will always be able to get a hold of me 24/7 on my cell phone by text or calling.
