Lovely house with all the comforts of home: big kitchen and dinning room; 4 bedrooms; 3 bathrooms; and a full finished basement with 2 extra rooms and 1 of the bathrooms. If you can't bring your own linen, I will supply it.

The space

Lovely house with all the comforts of home (including wireless Internet and big kitchen and dinning room). The house also has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and a full finished basement with 2 extra rooms and 1 of the bathrooms. So we try to be very flexible and accommodating. We will share the house.

If it is not possible for you to bring your own, I can supply them.

The pricing scheme is based on groups (people under the same booking) sharing rooms:
1. Ground floor Room, max 2 and small child (140cm bed and possibly a portable crib).
2. Basement Room, max 8 (90cm beds) or ... (140cm beds and possibly a portable crib). It comes with a small seating area and the 2nd bathroom.
3. 1st First floor Room, max 3 (90cm beds) or 4 (2 - 140cm beds) - a family of 5 have used the room (140cm bed, 90cm bed, a cot and a portable crib.
4. 2nd First floor Room (often not available), max 2 and small child (140cm bed and possibly a portable crib).
5. 3rd First floor Room (often not available), max 2 and small child (140cm or 180cm bed and possibly a portable crib).

If you wish to have the house to yourself - it is a much more expensive but can be arranged.

The hedges are high so the land is private, so private that you would be lucky if you notice my neighbors. Smoking is not allowed inside the house. You can smoke outside.

It is located 14 km from the heart of the 3rd largest city in Denmark (Odense) in Årslev (Aarslev), a very small (less than 4 square miles or 2 by 5 km) town sounded by farmland and forest. It has two banks, 3 grocery stores, fitness center, out door swimming, nature walks/runs, ...

Aarslev is a 15 minute train ride from Odense Center - or 20 minutes by car and a little longer by bus or bike. If you need, I can pick you up and drop you off at the Aarslev train-station (1 mile from the house).

I am an ex-American, now a Dane, and still a great host! In my younger days I was a dancer and then I changed my focus to Chinese Martial Arts. My hobbies include Science (including the social), technology, and philosophy. I have even organized a Christian-Buddhist study group. I love challenging debates on any subject.

Princess (the dog) is very friendly, smart, and playful (she was raised by two cats and to be very social). If you are afraid of dogs she could stay at her second home.

We can even make arrangements for meals.

If you want to bring your pet, it must be house broken. The yard has a low fence attached to the hedge.

You can bring your own linen/bedding (pillows, sheets, covers, and towels). If it is not possible for you to bring your own, I can supply them.

Guest access

When you park, please don't park in front of my neighbor's drive way. It will make it hard for them to get in and out of their driveway. You can use my driveway.

Interaction with guests

I am unemployed so I have time and can be very flexible should you need a driver, meals prepared, shopping, ... (we can discuss compensation).

Other things to note

Good stay Charles is friendly and helpful

We have had a problem with another host due to poor cleaning and for the strong smell of tobacco at his flat, and also the flat was in a guetto where we feared for our security, we were four men with 3 babies. Men's vacation. Charles has been trully awesome. We had reporte the problem to airbnb and they promptly started to look into a solution 5 ***** for airbnb staff. Within a few hours we had the solution. Airbnb phoned up Charles and told him about us. We got the url to Charles profile from airbnb and we have to say he replied to our enquire within 3-5 min. We also had a very specific requirement that not all host could fulfill in Odense and that was that we were 4 men and 3 one year old babies... so we needed a big place. Charles was the perfect solution! Within 20 min we arrived at Charles house, he welcomed us to and everything was perfect from that moment forward. Great communication, great place very quiet and a very safe neighbourhood. If you are in doubt please book with Charles he is an amazing host and a great person. When we meet in the house we would have a chat like old friends meeting again Charles thank you for making possible for us to relax and enjoy the amazing neighbourhood you live. 5 ***** to Charles!!!

Thank you very much Charles, I think I couldn't find anywhere like home more than your place. We were let down by Europe tunnel so we were arrived very late, 2am in the morning. But your daughter still waiting for us. Your home is such a lovely place I would recommend to everybody and I will come again in the future.

Our team had a great time to your house. The house was comfortable and clean, may be it should be a little more tidy. The food cooked by Charles was great! Thank you for your hospitality!

I am an ex-American, now a Dane, but still a great host!

I have a M.S. in Software Engineering. My hobbies includes world religion, philosophy, and martial arts (Traditional Wushu mainly). I love science, engineering, psychology, dogs, cats, and dancing!

My life motto is "Friendship is essential to the soul!"

And, if you are vacationing on Fyn (the island I live on), I would not mine showing you around if you wish.

My daughter speaks English and loves to meet new people too! Sometimes she stays here also.
