My partner, Tammy, and I live in the main house on the property in Tucson and manage the guesthouse for my parents who live in NYC for the better part of the year. We are in the process of starting an urban organic micro-farm on the one acre property so in the future, guests at Flower House will have easy access to fresh, organic fruits and vegetables during their stays. Our level of interaction with guests is determined by the guests themselves. We are available by phone/text throughout the stay and are often working outside on the property making introductions easy as guests desire. Otherwise, we respect guests' privacy much like one would expect from a hotel experience.
The house in Newton is located next to my grandmother's house and is managed locally by my aunt, Becky, who lives less than 1 mile away.
