Guy in my 40's, a writer who works partially from home, so I can often be flexible, with notice, on checkin and checkout (pending other reservations.) I have two small rescue dogs, but they stay to another side of the house for the most part (they're never allowed in your rental space except the patio area, so your room is dander free. But severe allergies or those with dog phobias might want to book elsewhere.
Respectful and friendly. I'm happy to point you to the sites, and some only locals know about. Or you can just go your own way every morning, explore the city for pleasure or work, and have a great, safe, friendly place to sleep or rest.
For guests--prefer a mid-20's and up for vacationing guests (or any age fine if here on business) due to how central we are. You really could walk everywhere if you wanted too, I just don't want to encourage those looking to be out every night, coming in loudly during the wee hours of the morning, giving me problems with neighbors. You have total privacy here and can come and go as you wish. The only time we run into one another is in the front door entryway, which is set off from both our parts of the house.
You're an adult, I'm an adult, what you do is your business. Just as long as you're respectful and turn off lights, lock the front door, don't leave towels mildewing on the wood floor, treat the rental as it's someone's home and not an anonymous hotel, we will get along great! Literally had 50+ great experiences to date!
