Interaction with guests
Upon check-in we will meet with you and help get you oriented to our house and answer any questions you have about your stay.
Scheduled socializing or impromptu interactions available upon mutual agreement. Note: Rob works from home so is generally around during the day to answer questions but sometimes is working on a deadline.
Optional: Rob or Sosan can pick you up at the airport for $20, if that works with our schedules. This is about the same price as Uber, and less than taxi fare.
Shared evening vegetarian meals may be arranged for an additional $10 per person (available occasionally, please ask if you are interested).
Quiet time is 10 pm to 8 am.
Make sure our indoor cats do not get out when you enter or leave.
Clean up after yourself within a reasonable period of time (i.e. wash dishes upon completion of meal).
Do not flush anything other than human waste and toilet paper in our toilet (our plumbing system is old and delicate).
I am a former Peace Corps volunteer who enjoys the outdoors, big cities and good food. I have been married for 29 years to a wonderful guy and we have an 18 year old son who is at Brown University in Providence, RI. We're a close family and we love to travel together, meet new people, and experience the food, music and art of places we visit.
We are self-directed travelers and love to explore on our own. We appreciate the simple things in life and are not fussy. It’s hard to think of things we can’t live without. I would say, it would be hard to live without the love of friends and family. My husband says it would be hard without a means of expressing himself. Our son says he can’t live without music.
A life motto for me would be, "Practice kindness."
