When I was a little girl, I fell in love with the "Beef- its whats for dinner!" commercial. Friends were always welcome- there was always enough food, and a place to sleep. You belonged. This is how I live my life today. My guests are my passion. Strangers are always welcome- and there will always be enough food. If you need something you have only to ask. What a great experience it has been opening my home to so many wonderful people through Airbnb. I hope you will be the next one. One of the best highlights of hosting, is coming home to find guests cooking and making themselves at home in my kitchen. Now, because of all the wonderful people that find me through Airbnb, this actually happens quite often. My idea of spontaneous guests always being welcome, comes from growing up in a big family in the country- where neighbors and travelers were always welcome. I wanted my home to embody that same openness and lifestyle. I host 3-4 travelers at a time, and the house is always full of great energy. I like to keep things simple. What you see is what you get. I live here with my three dogs and they keep the world in balance for me. I also have two cats, but I find that having a 2400 sq foot home with two levels, gives everyone the space they need. The floors can get dirty sometimes- its not perfect- but it is a home. And it will be your home as long as you stay. I am accepting of all people and hope you will be too.
