This consists of two apartments with doors right next to each other. One with one bedroom and sleeping room in the living room. The other has two bedrooms and one bed in the living room.  I plan on the bigger one for Bill and me, Kevin and Judy and Tim. Smaller one for Vanderwalls, Mike and Marcia. We have to vacate the smaller one on the last day so figure probably easiest to put the ones staying less time in the smaller one. But it can be rearranged too once we see it and which one has better sleeping in the living room for two people.

This is the best I could do without either getting two rentals further apart or one bigger one that had dorm like rooms with 4-5 beds in each room and cost more.

Because we had to rent a larger one to accommodate all nine of us, I am just splitting the cost by nine. So $220/person for their stay.
