I live upstairs and am usually around if you need anything. Check-in time is any time after 3:00 pm. If I'm not home when you arrive, just let yourselves in and I'll catch up with you later. Happy to give suggestions for places to see in addition to the info book I put together that's in the apartment. I like to be helpful so just let me know if you have any questions. If I'm not home you can always text me.
