Question Vacation dog double-up!

I'm planning a trip to see my father in the coming month.... I'm in Spain, he's in England... and wondered if other members had any advice on putting two dogs together temporarily - for a few weeks.

Both dogs are GSD-X rescues (bitches) -- his fully socialised, about 9, calm/friendly, loves other dogs, he's had her for years... mine a "teenager" (18 months, only recently rescued) and catching up on puppyhood.... excellent indoors though, but excitable outside + with new people/other dogs.

I'm hoping to stay at his place (rather than on my RV outside!!) - has anyone done anything like this and able to offer any advice?

I'm thinking to introduce the dogs and have them play outside first.... but wondering... do you feed them together... will they sleep in the same area etc.... should they be seperated quite a bit during the stay???
I'm also wondering whether the older GSD will find the visitor fun/mother her.... or think whats this mad youngster doing in my house

I guess a lot of it is "play it by ear" but I don't want to upset my Dad's dog nor unduly stress mine.... or have them form too deep a friendship only to break it after a couple of weeks....

All advice/suggestions/experiences much appreciated.
