Uh-oh, kicked out of your house? Got in trouble? Or you just want a time out from your significant other? And heck no if you call a friend/family and they find out your business! You don't need anymore drama, but spaaaaaace! haha. I have room in my daughter's snowboard/ski room for you to crash in.
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!"
Please, NO smoking in my home; I am allergic to smoke. Mahalo.
In addition to a new rule: please no registered guest may enter my home. I make sure to do a bit of research on my own before inviting anyone in my home, which is the registered guest. I'd like to take precautions as much as I can.
Due to past guests and having my washer and dryer available, I found that some guests have overused my amenities. I am a conservative girl and will only allow a full load of laundry. Please no 7 items or less as I have seen 3 items being washed and I cringe at wasting water and energy. First load of laundry is free, but $5 for each load.
At times, I have other guests booking at the same time as your visit. I will of course notify you of the person before your arrival. Please respect their space. I usually will have each guest with their own bathroom -- please do not share the bathroom unless the other guest says its okay. I want everyone in my home to have their own space and privacy as much as possible. Thank you.
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...
