The SpaceThis is a comfortable, welcoming and convenient space. Nothing special or fancy, just my home. It's very basic...a comfortable king-size bed, two closets, and a computer desk. You have the main bathroom that no one else will use during your visit.
There's also a smaller empty bedroom available; I could be talked into picking up an air mattress for any overflow guests. Contact me to work something out!
So important that I had to mention it in a couple of sections: I have two Quaker parrots in cages in the TV room by the kitchen. They like to chatter during the day. They are not generally too loud, but if you are a light sleeper, are planning on sleeping in during the day, or cannot handle some background noise, this might not be the place for you. I do have some earplugs in the bathroom just in case and some towels by the cages if you want to cover the cages at night! Please expect some chatter from them. Guest AccessYou'll have access to your bedroom, the main bathroom, TV room, kitchen, dining room, gym equipment, and laundry room; pretty much all the public areas of the house. I don't have cable TV, but I have an Amazon Firestick! Interaction with GuestsI'm used to having roommates, so I am comfortable with meeting and hanging out with new people ;-) I tend to keep busy, but if I am home I am happy to eat a meal with you, watch a movie, or just chat over a glass of wine! Feel free to hang out with me or keep to yourself, either is fine with me. The NeighborhoodThis neighborhood is right by the I64 interchange, and right by the border of Virginia Beach, Chesapeake and Norfolk. We are pretty much 15 minutes away from anywhere you want to be in Hampton Roads, 30 minutes from the Peninsula. I am also very close to the MEBA and SIU union halls, as well as the Mid-Atlantic Maritime Academy, for my Merchant Mariner friends out there! Getting AroundPublic transportation in this area is pretty weak, but there is a bus stop on Indian River Road a block or so away from my house if needed. Other Things to NoteI have two Quaker parrots in cages in the TV room by the kitchen. I like to let them out when I am home, but am fine with not doing so if that makes you nervous. I also talk to them, don't be scared =) They're not generally too loud, but if you are a light sleeper or cannot handle some background noise, this might not be the place for you. I have earplugs in the bathroom if you need them, and towels by the cages if you want to cover the cages at night. Please expect some chatter from them.
Also, although my house is very convenient to items of interest, please note that my neighborhood itself is smack-dab in the middle of suburbia.
