This is one bedroom in a three-bedroom house. There is a balcony with a view of garden.
You are welcome to enjoy the rest of the house. There is a livingroom with fireplace and a flat screen TV. There is Netflix available and some local channels.
I have a piano in the dining area, and I welcome piano players making use of it. Generally, only until 11pm, for the neighbour's sake. There are lots of books and games that you can make use of while staying here.
A private bedroom with one full sized bed, a desk, shelving, hooks and a closet (with hangers). Linens and pillows are provided, and towels can also be made available. There are additional blankets available if needed.
There are two bathrooms in the house. One with sink, toilet and rain shower located on the upper floor where the bedrooms are. The second is in the basement with sink, toilet and a tub with jets. A hair blower is available, if needed.
We share the kitchen. You are able to do your own cooking and there will be space in the cupboards and fridge, if you need to store any food. In addition to the fridge and stove, there is a microwave, toaster oven and pots and pans available. Also a kettle, coffee maker, slow cooker, bread machine, rice cooker/veg. steamer and electric griddle. Baking equipment like a blender, mixer, bowls, measuring cups and spoons, cookie sheets, cake and loaf pans.
There is no dishwasher. Dish soap and towels are supplied.
If there's anything you need while you're here, I'm happy to provide it and/or direct you to local stores where you can pick up extra supplies and do your grocery shopping.
It is heated in the colder months and generally kept cooler in the warmer months; however, there is no air conditioning. There are overhead fans in the living/dining room areas that keep things cool. There is also a portable fan for the room. A space heater is available if needed.
I will supply you with a code for the front door lock, so that you can come and go whenever you please. Please keep the door locked at all times (whether you are in the house or not). There is a place for shoes/boots etc. at the front door. You may bring your own slippers or I may have something that will fit you here.
I will respect your privacy and try not to disturb you during your stay.
As I live in the house (and sometimes work from home), I will generally be around if you need any assistance. My work schedule varies greatly, so I will be sure to leave you contact information to reach me at any time.
This is a non smoking - pet-free home. You can smoke on the front porch or in the back garden.
When you stay here, I welcome you into my home and you'll have your own private space into which you can retreat. It's up to you how much you want to interact. I'm happy help you find your way around the city and make recommendations when you ask. I have family living in the city and may occasionally have one of my grandchildren for a sleepover.
