During the academic year there are many students in the area. The neighborhood is generally quiet,but it is an urban environment, so don't expect rural "quiet".

I'm a quiet, respectful guest/host who most likely would be out and about most of the time as a guest. When I want pampering and resort activities, I'll go to a resort. Otherwise, a reasonably clean, quiet space is all that I need. My partner may occasionally be tagging along with me, depending upon his schedule. We both love good food, museums, galleries, and interesting walks. As a host, I will do all I can to be accommodating, and help to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
