About this listing

Private entrance hallway and laundry facilities and are shared with one other tenant. On site parking for one vehicle is provided. (Guest parking can be negotiated but please request this).

Interaction with guests
I'm semi retired so often home and available to help you with info or planning. Evenings are a little more rushed with family obligations. I love the occasional coffee or meal together.
Other things to note
We are less than a two hour drive from some of the best skiing in BC. You can access Cyprus Bowl, Grouse Mountain, Hemlock Valley, Mount Seymour and Mount Baker from this location. Abbotsford Airport, a 20 minute drive, receives international and domestic flights. The US border into Washington is a convenient 10 minute drive away.
Parking: Usually your spot will be on the left side driveway, either behind the RV or directly in front of the left garage door on the cement. Please ask for additional parking if you have a guest: I may be able to accommodate you on the premises.
Comings and Goings: We are a fairly quiet household; early mornings and late night comings and going can be disruptive so maintaining a schedule between 6 am and midnight is appreciated.
Pets: I have a pointer called Charlie and Mila the cat who are both pretty mellow. If you are generally comfortable around dogs, you will find Charlie friendly and easy to get along with. Once I have introduced you, he adjusts quickly to your visit. If you bring a pet please keep him leased any time you are exiting or entering the premises. If we find an opportunity to introduce both dogs we will. If a cat please use a crate to transport to and from your vehicle. My greatest concern with pets is that they not bother my current tenant.
Smoking: (anything) is not permitted in or around the premises.
Showers: We sleep early: showers after 6 am and before 10 pm please.
Communication:The best way to communicate with me is via text message; better than a phone call.
Problems:Please communicate any problems as soon as you notice them. This is a large household with several people and much activity, and unless I am told, I may overlook an important issue.
Washer and dryer use: your space has access to a shared washer and dryer. Detergent is available from the left side cabinet only. This is a shared space; please don't clutter this area. Please use cold water only, full loads and the moisture setting rather than the timed setting for the dryer. Use the highest heat setting; anything less takes forever.
You will have three bins:
Wet: compost veggie matter only, empty in green bin on your way out.
Recycle: DRY AND CLEAN paper, tin, glass, styrofoam, no pizza boxes
Rubbish:anything else bring upstairs and leave in side garage door

Semi retired ESL and music teacher, new mom of an 19 year old daughter, animal lover. Faith, music and travel play a big role in my life. I love to build, make, garden and best of all, putter. I love life in general, people in particular. Hosting on Airbnb has been an exciting journey, full of rich hosting memories.
