Interaction with guests
I work full time, so I do need peace and quiet to rejuvenate evenings, but enjoy brief conversations and am totally comfortable with silence when sharing common space. Please ask me if help needed for navigation, places to visit, etc.
Please make yourselves at home. Mutual respect for noise--earphones w/ music after 10:30pm. Appreciate if you could take 5--10 min showers. Please recycle everything possible. No smoking on property. Because of occasional allergies that guests have, no cats can accompany guests.
