Other things to note

Sometimes if all rooms are rented then one bathroom becomes shared. But there is a powder room on first level also for your use.

We have been renting rooms in our home for the last four years, but as long term. Most of our room mate's had been with us a year or two and some short term, 6 months or more. We have decided to give Airbnb a try hoping to be able to use it for our travels also. If you would like to get a hold of our past renters for references please let me know and I can arrange it.

We enjoy our home.

We are empty nesters.

I am always in the middle of several projects; cooking, baking, beading, gardening, decorating or redecorating.

In the summer my husband and I enjoy hanging out in our yard which has a great pool and patio.

We love our dogs, Rosie and Gabby....they are so cute!

I am a EBAY seller and also work for a company that conducts estate sales and my husband is a salesman at a local lumber yard.

Our home is well kept and tastefully decorated. We enjoy conversation and making others feel comfortable.

We love to travel, we spent 10 days in Tuscany, Italy and was in Cabo....where we used Airbnb.... planning our next trip. I want to go to Panama City or Costa Rica.

We respect others privacy and quiet time.
