Interaction with guests
I'm generally traveling when I rent my home out but I'm always available to help you. I'll try to be there to greet you when you arrive/depart but not always. However, I have key-less locks that allow you to let yourself in and check out so you never have to wait. There are maps, guidebooks and a list of local suggestions for eating, drinking, museums, etc. I'm happy to help you make any plans, don't hesitate to ask! My co-host Kay lives 3 houses down the street and will be available during your stay.
Other things to note
Please have in mind that our family lives upstairs, including a 7-year old and a two dogs. We spend most of the time in the second floor with one floor between us and the lower unit, so you shouldn't have to worry about it. Sometimes kids can make some noise, nothing out of the ordinary if you are used to apartment living.
No pets or smoking
