We believe in total privacy, but we will be happy to help out our guests with any questions they might have about the city, restaurants, food,
and other matters. Would love to share our experiences about the city
and surrounding areas. On the first day, upon arrival, we would like to meet and greet our guest, provide the door key and walk through the room/house to show necessary things and share the safety card.
If there are any concerns or requests about the room, we would like our guests to let us know during the walk through and on the first day so that we can immediately attend to their concerns and needs. We love to hear your feedback early on so that we can address your concerns immediately.

I am a development worker; worked at two multilateral development banks in Washington, DC and the Philippines. I completed my graduate studies in Canada, and New York while my husband did his from Moscow, Russia. We returned to DC area after many years of work in Asia and the Pacific countries. We love to travel, meet new people from around the world, try exotic food, and experience different cultures. We enjoy entertaining our friends and family, gardening, interior designing, collecting paintings, music and sometimes just having quiet quality time. I feel Airbnb will give us more opportunity to expand our friendships with people across the globe. So far it is an amazing experience.
