Very comfortable, safe, quiet and relaxed setting, I'm sure you will enjoy your stay. The room sleeps 2 in the full size bed and the sofa doubles as a daybed, to sleep an additional person. If you want to spend the day inside, grab the tablet and log into your reading app of choice on the wi-fi enabled tablet provided for your use while occupying the unit. HDMI cable connected to larger TV for video streaming from your device. There is a sound conditioner in the room for a more relaxing sleep experience.
The space is divided into 3 zones, sleeping area, living area and a separate kitchenette; there are 2 televisions for your enjoyment in the living and sleeping areas (37" with premium channels [HDMI equipped] and 24” receiving local channels) and clock radio. The space has a private bathroom, tablet (useful for finding nearby activities, restaurants, directions and recipes) and shared laundry room with laundry supplies.
Fresh 100% cotton towels are always available. For longer stays, bed linens are exchanged every 7 days for your comfort.
You can come and go at your leisure, there are keypads on the entry door and you will be given a key to lock your bedroom door. 24 hour check-in is available with prior coordination. There's an internet connected tablet in the space, useful for finding nearby restaurants, directions to local attractions and finding recipes for cooking in the slow cooker and grill in the kitchenette. The TV Guide app loaded in the tablet is useful for finding programs to watch on the premium channels during rainy or lazy days. Back yard and large patio with gas grill and outdoor couches and a fire bowl for winding down after work or school.
Interaction with guests
I live main floor of the house and I am available to greet you if you check-in between 1 pm and 6 pm. Feel free to join me for a chat by the fire bowl on the patio on chilly evenings. ☺️
Other things to note
The laundry room is stocked with essentials for washing and an emergency mending kit to take care of your clothes during your stay.
I have a very well behaved Jack Russell, he is not allowed in the guest areas.
The house doesn't have forced air (no shared heating or cooling vents/ducts) so the likelihood of having an allergic reaction to the dog is very low. This is a great plus if you are concerned about allergies or sharing space with a dog.
Street parking directly in front of the house.
For safety reasons hot plates aren't allowed. Smoking outside only, this residence is not 4/20 friendly. Please include correct number of guests on your reservation request.
I am a self-employed, empty-nester having a great time enjoying my new-found freedom. I enjoy traveling and meeting new people. I look forward to taking more trips through AirBnB. I've been a member of the AirBnB community since 2015 and I've had very positive experiences as a host and traveler.
Hope to meet you soon!
