WHAT ABOUT WIFI?

Yeah, what about that. Well, eventually, probably, maybe, we’ll be able to have it in each house. It’s not low cost enough for us to do that yet. So, we bought a temporary building to be a WI-FI house next to Owl House, pretty much equidistant from all the rental houses. If you’d like to use WI-FI, you check out a numbered key from the office or request one when you make your reservation. The key has a horrid, great four inch by eight inch, ¾ inch thick fob painted bright red attached to it. We hope it’s too big to fit in a pocket and too ugly to get misplaced. Anyone in your house can use the key, 24 hours a day. Lights are on a motion detector. If the lights go out, wave at the ceiling.

There’s a printer in the WI-FI house: you can pick up a few sheets of paper in the office or buy a ream if you’re going to make lots of copies. There are chairs for 12 people. No pets in the WI-FI House, no children and no food. Drinks in sipper containers are fine. No smoking, needless to say. If we only clean it once a week, the cost stays low. If we have to clean up messes every day , the cost goes up, and up, and up…..

Eventually, we’ll have WI-FI in all the houses, if we’re still in business by then. Then we’ll pick up the WI-FI house, install a loft with a ladder and some kids’ furniture and put it in the children’s playground as a play house.

There will be a fee of $20 if you fail to return the key and key fob to the office or leave it in the house before your departure.
