To Our Guests:

As the Covid-19 pandemic has now entered a new phase and gets under control, travel habits are changing. There is a noticeable increase in AirBnb bookings here at our house. Guests are extremely psyched to get out and travel. We are so happy to see more guests arriving again!

When guests step into our basement AirBnb, along with being very happy to have such a big and fun space, they see a place that looks perfect for a party. A pattern of over-excitement and assumption has emerged. But this is not a place for you to party.

Don’t get me wrong … we love it when people put on a record from our vinyl collection and have a blast playing ping pong. Nothing makes us happier than guests enjoying themselves! But too often people invite their friends over, turn the volume up on the stereo system, drink too much, maybe smoke, and throw a party. This is not a place to party.

We live upstairs. This is an old house. When voices and music get loud in the basement, the noise carries upstairs. Our own voices can get drowned out by noise from guests. Guests sometimes think that besides having a few drinks, that smoking pot is OK since it’s legal, or a quick cigarette is OK. Smoking of any kind is not allowed inside or outside.

Please remember there is no smoking of any kind by anyone of anything anywhere on this property at any time. You can’t smoke anything here!

Please respect our rules and respect our neighbors. We rely on AirBnb for our income. Eight (8) surrounding neighbors allow us to have an AirBnb in our basement. If one (1) of our neighbors has a negative experience with an AirBnb guest, they can shut us down and put us out of business.

Welcome! Travel is back! Have fun! Just have fun within reason.
