Spend a little vacation on the mainland, pretending that you're on an da' beach of Hawaii. No worries, no stress because that's left at the office and at your own home. Your room is nestled above our carport, away from the rest of the house.
My home is quite peaceful as my neighbors are mostly retired and love that they don't hear much, if anything at all. The house is sort of secluded so you can mostly just hear birds outside chirping. Please be conscious of the noise -- aka, no pounding music blasting from my speakers. Turn it up as loud as you want, as long you stand outside you can't hear the "boom-boom" shaking. Haha.
My home is a smoke and pet free home. Oh, and island style: "please remove your shoes when entering my home…but no leave with the bettah kine!"
Laundry: Due to past guests asking to use my washer/dryer in access for just one night stay, I ask that the washer/dryer be only used for those staying more than one night. Its just cost effective for me as I am also using my washer/dryer for the linens to be used by you as well as the laundry that you need to wash for yourselves. Upon the second night of staying, the first load of laundry is free, again due to my low cost in base rate, I ask to charge $5 for additional per load of laundry. I am a conservative energy girl, paying for my further education through airbnb funds as well.
Please, NO smoking in my home; I am allergic to smoke. Mahalo.
Important note to state is that if I feel uncomfortable or feel you have stepped out of boundaries, making myself feel unsafe in my own home, I do have the right to say, "Sorry, you gotta go! Auntie doesn't like your style or I gonna tell da' neighbors to boot you out.."
I'm the youngest child of two older brothers, raised by my brothers and father. Should that sum me up? The dare-devil, adventure-seeking, tomboy (however, my daughters have tapped into my girly-girl side), born and raised in Hawaii. Lived here in Washington for many years. Attended WSU. I snowboard, snowshoe, rock climb, cross-country ski, surf, scuba dive, hike…basically anything adrenaline rushing doing it outdoors being challenged and laughing out loud at myself (and my daughters -- I mean, why did we have kids? haha). If I'm not on a mountain, or down under the water, I'm enjoying adventure at home, delving into any kind of domestic hobby there is. From baking the impossible French croissants from scratch, to conjuring up the best chocolate chip cookie, to seeing if I can knit a beanie via youtube. My high in life is watching others smile, even if its trying my foods saying, "Is it good? Is it good? I need more feedback!" Or giving my hand knit beanies to friends, saying, "I made that sh*&^%t!". I also recently started my own Etsy account if you're interested: "soylattesandknits". You'll see a ton of my obsessive knitting designs online…and well, in my own home. Anything bought, I always wonder how much money it would cost if I made it my own. I'm that girl who enjoys recycling, thrift store shopping, being earth friendly (no comment about my Ford truck, yikes!). I'm also in patient care as well and grew up in customer service in a family owned business, so hosting AirB&B is sort of chump change when you already have a Doctorate's in Motherhood. Haha! My first AirB&B guests, I was like "This is weird. I always have friends over, but to charge them money this time??" Entertaining/hosting, I believe has always been natural to me -- did hula competions and bank commercials as a kid. Ah, youngest children...
5 things I can't live without: my daughters, dark chocolate, soy lattes, chocolate chip cookies, and as much as I can carry on a conversation, I enjoy lots and lots of quiet time.
My motto in life: You are who you are from and through other people...
