Interaction with Guests
I work fairly long hours and so if you are visiting during the business week, we may not see too much of each other. As a rule I make myself as available as my guests would like me to be.
Quincy House is located just a five minute walk from the Georgia Avenue/Petworth metro station in the heart of the vibrant, thriving Petworth neighborhood. We are a close knit community of young families and professionals who place a premium on our neighborhood's historic homes, porch culture, and friendly style. You'll love it here!
Three blocks from the Georgia Avenue/Petworth Metro Station (green/yellow line) and the H8 bus stops right outside the front door. You can reach nearly all of the major sights within 15-20 minutes via public transportation.
Hello and welcome to Quincy House!
Whenever I welcome a new Airbnb guest into my home I always begin by telling them to make themselves "feel at home." I think this is a good rule of thumb -- one that balances an environment that relaxes the body and spirit with a standard of respect for others and the space around you.
I want your stay at Quincy House (whether in the Guest Room or Loft) to be a memorable one: make yourself comfortable and don't be afraid to ask for anything. I will always do everything in my power to make sure you are entirely satisfied. In return, I ask you to be respectful: of me, my roommate, and the house.
I've had quite a few guests and this general rule has worked out splendidly, so I don't anticipate changing it anytime soon. Just remember to ask if you have any questions (I always try my best to say yes.)
Other general rules of thumb:
- It is your responsibility to lock the door upon exit. During the weekday you will also be expected to arm and disarm the alarm (directions will be provided.)
- Please be mindful of placing wet things (cups, towels) on the woodwork.
- If you use the kitchen, you are expected to leave it as you found it (no dishes in the sink).
- Your are sharing the bathroom, so please leave it clean for the next user.
- After 10 pm, please be mindful that others in the house may be sleeping.
- No outside guests allowed unless cleared with me.
- In the winter or in the rain, please take your shoes off upon entrance.
- Ruby the dog will be crated when I am not home. She is young so still learning but very friendly.
Thanks for listening and I look forward to your stay.
