You will have access to your room and bathroom, and if renting the air mattress, you will have access to that room.

Unless prior arrangement is made, the kitchen is not for guest use.
Interaction with Guests
If I am home and around I will be happy to have a short chat. I have had guests appear to expect that I would be spending lots of time with them. This is not the case. You are very welcome, and I am quite busy and also live here. Often, I will engage briefly and politely and then go about my business. Please do not take this as an indication of unfriendliness. My day job involves talking and listening a lot, so when I come home I need some down time.
Other Things to Note
Please note that this is my home, in which I live. So the house will not present as a pristine hotel, because that is not what it is. It is clean, lived in and comfortable. Your room and bathroom will be very clean, the rest of the house is not kept to hotel standards as this is not a hotel experience. Please also note, my dog and cat live here. They will engage in normal dog and cat behaviors such as greeting you at the door, barking when they hear you come up the stairs, shedding their fur, getting on your bed if you leave your door open (cat). If you do not like dogs or cats, please do not choose this listing. If there is any meanness to the animals, I will ask you to leave immediately. If there is shrieking in fear at the approach of my small friendly animals, I will ask you to leave. They live here, this is their home.
Please remove shoes while in house. Smoking allowed on decks only. Please remove any food from the refrigerator (if we have agreed that you may use the kitchen in advance, otherwise the kitchen is not for guest use) and house at the end of your stay. If your pets soil the Persian Carpet in the living room, or any other carpets in the house your $100 security deposit will be kept to go towards cleaning that carpet, so it is best to keep your pets within your sights during your visit. Please respect the fact that I live here with general politenesses such as being fairly quiet early in the morning or late at night, using coasters if you put a glass or cup down on wood, hanging wet towels in the spaces provided in the bathroom rather than throwing them on furniture and other basic courtesy. Please do not leave any alcoholic beverages or anything else that I will have to dispose of here. Take everything you brought in with you. Thank you!
