I think not so much rules, but of things I'm always thankful for when they happen;
parking so that 2 cars can still fit in front of the house (there's usually easy parking near the house, so not a big deal, but I'm frequently unloading equipment when I come home, so appreciate being able to park in front of the house)
knowing when you're coming and going more or less, or if you're here- something guests don't think about- if they close the door to their room, I don't know if they're here, maybe sleeping or not. I like to practice and don't want to disturb people.
This one does feel like a bigger deal sometimes- if you book and are planning to arrive in the morning of the day before the night you're staying. do let me know when you request a res. Sometimes it doesn't work, because another guest will book the night before after you do and still be here (also, I keep musician's hours and may want to be sleeping).
Most of this seems to all work out, it just seemed worthwhile to let folks know.
I'm a musician and massage therapist living in Charlottesville, Va.
My most recent project has been being part of creating and playing music for an very amazing international exchange dance/art installation performance piece (much of our company is from Mexico) called The Unearthing (check it out on the web). We did free community workshops around boundaries, exchange, cultural identity, environmental sustainability (focusing on mountaintop removal); dance classes, and workshops with kids (I facilitated bucket drums).
I love and have done this kind of work before; mostly sessions on improvisation with music and movement, working with Canadian teenagers to dancers in Mexico...
I also look forward to hosting people through Airbnb.
I'm a licensed (and excellent) massage therapist- (website coming). Come to Charlottesville and get a massage while you stay, or receive one when I stay with you.
