Interaction with Guests

I am typically in & out and like to do a little traveling myself so if I am around and you are available, I would love to take some time to chat, but I also respect privacy, both mine & yours.

The Neighborhood

My neighborhood is great, a working class neighborhood that is about as close to downtown as you can be without being in the mix of it. It is literally a few minutes walk to almost anything you would want, yet a complete neighborhood feel. My neighbors are all friendly we are diverse in our socio-economic, racial, political, age & gender make-ups.

Getting Around

You can walk to almost anything, but driving is easy as well, I am right off of I-26 & I-240. There are taxis & Uber service. There are bus stops within two blocks. The airport is about a 15 minute drive; there are taxis, Uber & shuttles. There is permitted on street parking directly in front of the house while you visit.

House Rules

I'm not super into rules, especially on vacation!
--PLEASE read the email from airbnb with the House Manual, it will tell you everything you need to know.
--You will find I am pretty hands off but here if you need me. The airbnb mobile app doesn't work well on my phone, but I am good at texting, so feel free to communicate with me that way.
---Tea, coffee, cooking oils & spices are provided for your pleasure
--A parking pass is provided, please park directly in front of house so that two vehicles can fit & overflow parking can be on Marcellus (please respect the neighbors & do not park in front of their houses if possible, thanks!)
--As far as (URL HIDDEN) respectful, enjoy yourself, Asheville and surrounding areas. Please keep in mind this is a neighborhood and my neighborly relations are very important to me; besides they are rad people & they deserve respectful neighbors, short or long term.

Oh, and of course have fun!
