I am a freeleancer from the UK living in Brooklyn. I am house sitting in the neighbourhood so I thought I I would try letting my room with air B+B. I love to travel and know how expensive hotels get, so this to me is a great idea.
I have a room mate she is very easy going. We like the place to be clean and tidy although not anal about it!! I would expect anyone coming here to be mindful that she is there and reasonably quiet after 11pm, as she has to get up early for work.
My Room mate has a cat and a dog, they are very sweet, quiet and clean. The dog hardly leaves her side of the apartment and the cat can easily be shut out of your space.
