5. variety

As a host you will only meet me when I hand over the keys - that's it!

As a guest, mostly as a business traveller, I need privacy and flexibility of coming and going as I often travel interstate on business so by the time I arrive it is usually late and I'm tired and need to prepare for the next day.
