Interaction with guests
I like to meet guests on arrival to ensure that they know how everything works in the apartment, hand over keys and answer any questions that guests may have. On the odd occasion when it is not possible to meet guests there is a key safe system that we use. Unless I am on holiday myself I am always available to help if need be . The part I enjoy most about running a holiday apartment is meeting the guests.
