Hello! My name is Ruthie. (Leftmost. with my mom and sisters)
Hosting makes me happy, for many reasons. I feel bad when I fail to respond immediately due to poor internet connection or when I'd have to decline due to lack of bed accommodations.
It took a while for our family to open up to the idea of airbnb, but finally we did. Don't hesitate to contact me for details about the space. We appreciate guests who are very transparent about their needs and expectations because we really want them to have a comfortable and pleasant stay.
However, please keep in mind that booking with Airbnb means you are staying at someone's home and not a resort or hotel. So, we ask that our house rules be respected and abided.
Hope to meet you soon!
