First, let’s take a quick tour of the Super Groovy Suite!!

Now, when you come stay at my pad, here are a few videos that might explain some quirks and make your stay more enjoyable – Hope they help!

Handy Tools:

About the Suite:

  • Entry: Please do NOT lock the door handle when leaving. Just hold down on the # key and it will close the deadbolt. When entering, just type in your code and #. The deadbolt will open. If you find yourself accidentally locked out, just text or call me and I’ll tell you about the emergency keys onsite (don’t panic! Heehee)
  • NO SMOKING: I’m sorry, but it’s an HOA rule that there be no smoking within 25′ of any of the buildings. Please don’t get me in trouble by smoking ‘out front’ or ‘out back’. If you’re a smoker, you should cancel and find a better ‘smoker-friendly’ space in FoCo. My apologies for the inconvenience.
  • Parking: You can park on the street or in the space marked ‘204’ behind the condo.
  • WiFi: Connect to “SuiteNGroovy”. The Password is: FocoGroovy (case-sensitive)
  • Temperature: The Nest thermostat on the south wall can be adjusted by turning the chrome outer frame. You can also push in on it to change things like heat to cool, etc.
  • Coffee: The coffee makers don’t use paper filters; just spoon the coffee grounds into the top, fill with water and brew! Be sure to rinse the filter out if you are staying multiple days and using it again.
  • Outdoor Patio: If you want to use the cushions inside the closet, please bring them back in when finished. It’s hard to keep the chairs clean so you may need to wipe them down if spotted by weather.
  • Laundry: Feel free to use the washer and dryer in the hall if you need to clean your personal clothes, etc. There are detergent pods and dryer sheets in the little hallway storage unit.
  • Device Charging: Next to the entryway in the living room and in each bedroom you will find fast charging cables for Apple or Android devices.
  • Miscellaneous: There are hair dryers underneath the sinks. There is an iron and ironing board in the hall closet by the patio. Feel free to use anything you want in the kitchen and leave anything dirty in the dishwasher or sink.
  • Printer: Just tap the power button and connect the USB to your laptop to print. Drivers are on the disc.
  • Check Out: Check out is by 11 am. Please kindly message me when you leave.
  • Reviews/Feedback: I would really love it if you would (pretty please) write any comments or suggestions on the whiteboard by the kitchen! Also, I would really appreciate a review on Airbnb and I’ll leave you one as well. =) If I didn’t deserve 5-stars, please let me know how we could have done better beforehand.

TV/Entertainment Instructions

  • Living Room: Turn on the TV with the small remote. The volume is on the side of the remote. Choose cable, Netflix, Amazon, whatever you want. To watch Normal Cable TV, use the Xfinity remote.
  • Master Bedroom: Just like the Living room, but no cable TV available, just Netflix and all the other smart apps.
  • North Bedroom: Not a smart TV, but it does have cable TV, use the Xfinity remote to run the TV and cable.

Check Out Zagster!

  • We have a sweet Bike Share here in Fort Collins that makes it fun and easy to get around, called Zagster!
  • There is a website & app for iOS/Android to give you all the details: zagster.com/fortcollins
  • The closest bank of bikes is at New Belgium Brewing Co, and there are many places to rent/return around town!

Sofa/Chaise Bed Instructions (4+ guests)

  • My best advice is to watch the video above. It’s short and shows how the easy ratchet system works.
  • Pillows and blankets are in the closet, and if you need extra sheets, you can use some from either bedroom closet.

 

Miscellaneous ‘PLEASE’s =)

  • Please use the cord keepers on the walls to wrap up the cords on the blinds so that they

    don’t hang on the floor because my robot vacuum will get tangled up and suffer a non-groovy death!

  • Please DO NOT SMOKE anywhere on the property. There’s an HOA ordinance that states no smoking within 25’ of the condo buildings. I don’t want to get into any trouble with the neighbors.
  • Please enjoy yourself and have an amazing time during your stay at the Super Groovy Suite!!!
