Interaction with Guests
If we are home and have time we will be happy to have a short chat. We have had guests appear to expect that we would be spending lots of time with them. This is not the case. You are very welcome, and we are quite busy and also live here. Often, we will engage briefly and politely and then go about our business. Please do not take this as an indication of unfriendliness. Our day jobs involve talking and listening a lot, so when we come home we need some down time.
Other Things to Note
Please note that this is our home, and we live here full time. 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, our dog lives here. He will engage in normal dog behavior such as greeting you at the door, barking when he hears you come up the stairs, shedding fur. He occasionally barks at coyotes in the middle of the night. If you do not like dogs, please do not choose this listing. If there is any meanness to the dog, I will ask you to leave immediately. If there is shrieking in fear at the approach of my small friendly dog (yes, this has happened multiple times, sadly), I will ask you to leave. He lives here, this is his home.
Please remove shoes while in house. This is not a request. If you are not comfortable removing your shoes, please do not pick this listing. 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 we 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. 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!
We love to travel, spend time in nature, do yoga and garden. We enjoy the Airbnb experience as we get to meet lots of lovely people from all over the world! We live with our sweet cat, Clyde and puppy Tate. We are blessed to have many amazing friends and a loving family.
As hosts we provide a very clean and cosy room and bathroom. We put out some healthy snacks, toiletries in case a guest has forgotten something and give you lots of privacy and space.
Our favorite travel destinations so far are Alaska, Turkey, Egypt, Morocco and Italy. We hope to do a lot more traveling in the future!
