Guests are welcome to stop in for a chat, or maintain complete privacy after the initial welcoming. The NeighborhoodWe live in a quiet neighborhood with an eclectic mix of families, students, young and old folks. It is considered a very safe neighborhood, and we are only couple of blocks away from the police station.
