It's occasional renting for fun, not for business. I'm a bookkeeper, not a landlord :]

Weekends and holidays are more flexible. Do not hesitate to ask.
You get two pairs of keys.
Use everything you find. The entire apartment is for you.
Free WiFi. No file sharing and other illegal things, please. Be fair to me and other guests, try to limit your data volume to max 2GB per day.

"Comme indiqué dans mon annonce, je ne parle pas français. S'il vous plaît utilisez un de mes langues. Merci."
I'm usually there to hand over the keys and I'm there at your departure. But this depends on day and time. Maybe you have to find you own way, and I come around later. I work full-time (I'm am not a professional landlord) and I have hobbies (triathlon, small garden on the outskirts, ...).
I am in general reachable via my mobile phone number, but it's also now and then switched silent. SMS is usually going good. I also use whatspp. You'll automatically see my mobile phone number in my profile, once you finished (=paid) the booking.
You are close to everything, but not in the middle of all other tourists.
