Bischwind House Policies
(aka: NOT a Party House)
We aim to make your stay as comfortable and as enjoyable as it can be. To do this, it’s important that our guests fully understand the Bischwind Villa House Rules. Please review these carefully, and confirm in writing your group's understanding and acceptance of these terms as a condition of your reservation. If these terms are unacceptable, please do not book. Owner and/or security attendant will be on site during your stay.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
Violation of any of these four policies will result in termination of the reservation (and your group immediately vacating the property) without refund. Violation by one person is considered to be a violation by all:
1. NOISE: Bischwind isn't a party house. This is an historic residence in a residential community with strict noise restraints. Specifically, the following criteria must be adhered to:
No boom boxes, fireworks, amplifiers, loud music, or noise makers outside, ever.
QUIET HOURS: 9:00 PM until 8:00 AM. (Casual conversation, OK. But no noise that neighbors can hear.)
There is no flexibility on the Bischwind noise policy, and yes, we enforce it rigorously.
2. ATTENDEE ROSTER: A roster (name and address) of authorized attendees (not to exceed 16 when renting the entire Villa, without specific written permission) must be submitted at least one week in advance. Use of the residence by anyone not listed on the authorized roster will be grounds for termination of the reservation without refund.
3. GROUP CONTACT: The individual who reserves the Bischwind must be one of the listed Attendees, and must be on-site for the duration of the booking.
4. ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES: Any illegal activity, including drug use, is not permitted at Bischwind.
As a service to our guests, and for your safety and security, our part-time on-site security/concierge service is present most evenings, and can offer immediate assistance if needed. In respect of your privacy, and in keeping with COVID-19 protocols, the attendant and/or owner will remain masked at all times, and socially distant (10 feet minimum).
Also be sure to abide by these important rules:
SWIMMING: Guests are welcome to use our swimming pool at their own discretion. There is no lifeguard on duty. Glass containers aren’t permitted in the pool area, and diving into the pool isn’t allowed. Minors should at all times be supervised by an adult inside the gated pool area.
FIRES & FLAMES: For your safety and the safety of others, open flames (candles, fireplaces, fireworks, etc.) aren’t allowed on Bischwind property. Electric fireplaces may of course be used at any time.
SMOKING & VAPING: These aren’t permitted inside the Villa.
KITCHEN ETIQUETTE: We ask that you wash and clean the cooking and dining areas after each use, and that upon departure, any dirty dishes are placed in one or more of the three dishwashers.
PARKING: Please use the large parking lot, and avoid parking in the gravel loop. The loop must be kept open in case emergency vehicles need to access that area.
SPECIAL EVENTS: If your group wishes to invite other guests for a planned event (wedding, anniversary, birthday, etc.) you must get permission for this in advance. Extra cleaning fees and charges will apply.
OUTSIDE BBQ GRILL: You are welcome to use the grill for your group’s personal use, but not for a larger organized function. Please clean the grill and grill area after each use, to avoid extra cleaning charges.
FURNITURE: We ask that furniture not be significantly re-arranged. If moved, please return it to its original station.
AND FINALLY … because this is not a hotel - and also because this is our family’s home - we appreciate your being respectful not just of the property, but of the unique history and heritage embodied here at the Villa.
Thank you for being respectful, and for acknowledging and adhering to the Bischwind House Rules.
