During your stay

We will greet you upon arrival to introduce you to our lovely home. We live there but most of the public and private areas are separate. We will sit and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee with your you like or leave you alone. This is your stay and we want you to enjoy yourself. We both work at the university but we do try to have homemade cookies waiting for you upon arrival.

We keep our two cats, Salvador and Chole, also live with us and serve as co-hosts! They are VERY friendly.
