I do have a purebred kitten ( pictured ) I keep her in my part of the house, not in the Tenant's Apartment. I am very clean and the house always smells fresh :)
I am a musician and have a Vienanesse grand piano in the large kitchen you pass through to get to your apartment. The Kitchen closes off from the rest of my home, so you will come and go as you please from this 2nd back entrance. You are also welcome to play the piano if you are a musician or an aspiring musician :)
Please don't hesitate to ask me if you have any questions! You can always text me for a quick response. I don't usually see the tenant because my home is about 2700 square feet and I live in the other levels. But I am friendly and happy to help if you need anything :)
SECOND PERSON - must also be booked through airbnb.
* NOTE ~ the Virtual "Street View" is approx. my Actual view is better :) because my house backs to the lake and the front yard is the largest in the neighborhood:) from the front yard, you will see the single family Colonial houses, after your Free parking area :) Guest AccessGuests can use the private Tennis courts at the end of the street in the neighborhood. Guests can enjoy free parking directly above the large front yard. The large flat screen is available for your computer to connect with. I don't have regular tv channels because I found it was mostly commercials : p lol Guests have preferred to use their own Netflix accounts and computers . We do have wifi : ) Interaction with GuestsI give my guest complete privacy and I enjoy my own privacy. You enter and exit through the back deck door from the main level. Your space is downstairs off the piano room, lake side. The doors to this room close off from my two floors of the house so I rarely see my tenant as you come and go freely and this gives us both our privacy. Enjoy your stay! If you have questions, you're welcome to text me.
