Interaction with guests
We do not live at this location (we live 5-blocks away). This house is completely dedicated to Airbnb guests. Our interaction can vary depending on our schedules and our guests' schedules. Sometimes we cross paths frequently, sometimes guests come and go without us meeting face-to-face. We have a self-check in process that allows guest to arrive when they like. We tend to keep busy schedules and travel frequently so interaction can vary.
Other things to note
Just as a clarification for new Airbnb users - our house does not provide a typical BnB experience. We offer clean comfortable rooms in a shared house with little to no interaction from us the host. Our space works well for grad students and doctors who are in town looking for a place to stay for a weekend or a month. If this environment work for you then we look forward to hosting you while you are in town.
