Pets are permitted, but there is an $ (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) extra fee for them, so that the caretaker can ensure that the pet dander ect. is clean up before the next guest arrives.
We do welcome pets to our home, but we will need proof that your pet is flea free before they can stay. The proof can be a letter from at veterinarian that states that the pet is on medication for fleas, and is flea free. I am sorry if this is an inconvenience, but we want all guests to have a pleasurable stay in a flea free home.
If it is found that you have a pet that was not registered, and the pet fee was not paid, you will be charged the pet fee, and responsible for any flea's found after your stay (as they can live months before hatching).
