Interaktion mit Gästen
I will make myself available for questions and concerns during your stay, if not personally, then via mobile. Other than that, you most probably may see me maintaining the gardens, walking Mr. Fritz (my overly friendly mini-Schnauzer), or attending to the common areas of the house. Otherwise, you are "on your own", and I will be non-intrusive.
