These rooms and home are for you if you consider yourself a neat, clean, responsible, respectful, well educated person that is detail oriented and active. If you do not fit into these categories, you will not be happy here and should keep looking. Seriously!

As a Guest, you agree to the following:
Reading all of the House Rules below. Ignorance of the House Rules, like ignorance of the law, is no excuse or defense.
You will be a neat, clean and respectful person and will be held to those standards by everyone else residing here, not just me.
No Illegal Drugs on property. Zero tolerance, if I see it, the police will be called and you are out on the street immediately.
No Underage Drinking on property. If you are not 21 years old or more, you are not allowed to have alcoholic beverages here and the police may be called.
No Unapproved Visitors. If you would like to have a visitor, that visitor needs to be pre-approved by me before they come here. If not, they are trespassing and the police may be called to remove them.
No Parties. You are a guest staying here, but your friends are not. Unless pre-approved by me ahead of time, Unapproved Visitors will be trespassing and the police may be called to remove them.
No Approved Visitors allowed in the bedrooms unless pre-approved by me ahead of time. There is a living room, dining room and kitchen to meet approved visitors.
No Overnight Approved Visitors. If you would like to have an overnight visitor, that visitor needs to be pre-approved by me before they come here and will need to pay the Additional Guests nightly rate.
No Smoking inside the house. Smoking outside is allowed as long as you use an ashtray and dispose of the ashes and butts. If they are not disposed of properly, this privilege will be revoked.
No Pets owned by guests are allowed. I dog sit for my parent's miniature poodle, so there may be a dog at times in the house. This is your notice for any allergy concerns.
No eating or drinking in the bedrooms, except for water. We have a kitchen, dining room and living room for eating and drinking.
You will make a mess and you will clean it up immediately. This includes, but is not limited to: cleaning the stove top, oven or microwave after use, no dirty dishes in the sink, wiping off kitchen counters and table after use, cleaning up after yourself in the bathroom, etc. I'm not the maid or your mother, but I will tell you about it like your father and you will clean it up.
As a Monthly Guest, you agree to the following additional chores:
You will clean the common areas assigned to you monthly. Cleaning is shared between all guests if you are staying for 1 month or more. Depending on the number of guests, that will determine how many common rooms you are responsible for cleaning during the first week of the month and the rooms will vary each month.
You will share in the responsibilities of trash collection. You will sort trash as you create it to separate any recycling items as required by the city of Easton. You will put the trash and recycling out Tuesday nights and bring in the empty containers on Wednesdays. Any fines by the city will be passed on to you if you do not recycle.
You will share in the responsibilities of snow and ice removal. In winter, you will shovel snow to clear all walkways and parking spaces. If I am not home, this solely falls on the Guests. Any fines by the city will be passed on to you if you do not clear the public walkways.
As a Long Term Monthly Guest, you also agree to cleaning your room at a minimum of each quarter.
Note: All of the above have been compiled after many years of hosting and are reasonable to reasonable people. Read my reviews and you will see that I am tough but fair.
About the Host, Kevin
Nice gay guy that loves to travel! I've been all around the world, too many places to list. So if you love travel too, we will get along very well! I work for for a travel company where I am currently a project manager in eCommerce and previously was a software testing manager in IT. Short and sweet description, LOL. Just ask and I'll fill you in on anything else that you want to know...
