I have a private room on the same floor as where you'll be staying, but I usually stay out of sight so you can enjoy the space. I occassionally enter the space to help with taking out any trash/recycling. This is my home where I keep my belongings, so I do enter from time to time when guests are not in the unit.
***I have a private room on the same floor as the listing with its own door and tend to use the downstairs apartment for most of my needs. I do sleep on the same floor as the apartment that I am renting to guests, but I stay pretty much out of sight.***
First and foremost, thank you for considering and booking your stay in my humble home while in this great city. I hope it is a great experience for you.

Im a full time host on airbnb, using this platform to power my adventures around the world while maintaining a great level of financial freedom in my own life.
Airbnb is a great and affordable way to experience new places authentically, with the help of a local. I recently just completed a road trip from Los Angeles CA to New York City in 13 days while driving along the southern route with my companion, Jacqui. We enjoyed a few great Bnb's along the way!
By profession, I am a bike messenger, community organizer and advocate. I love to ride because it is the BEST way to see a city, be healthy and avoid traffic and parking stress. I care deeply about nature and living cleanly and respectfully.
I say to every one, travel FAR and travel OFTEN, and be good to mother earth.
