I teach at a college in New Hampshire and love hanging out with my daughters, aged 6 and 11.
It was SUCH A PLEASURE to host Jennifer and her wonderful family for two weeks! We shared the home for one week and left it in her care while we travelled for another week. In both cases, Jennifer proved to be a very thoughtful and conscientious guest, taking time to wash the dishes after each meal even though we insisted she didn't need to and offering my kids special treats which they loved! She even took time to do a lovely art project with my kids in the midst of her family's full schedule. Once we left for vacation she took time to keep me posted on any issues around the house and when her travel plans changed, she let me know promptly. Jennifer even helped me prep the house for my next guests by laundering the linens that her family used. In short, whether you are sharing a space or subletting your whole house while you're away, any host would be LUCKY to welcome Jennifer & family in to their home!
