The upstairs is for guests, where you'll have your own bedroom and bathroom.

We usually take our shoes off at the door. This listing is for one bed, suitable for single person or a couple. Please see our other listings for two and three bed bookings.
Interaction with guests
We start a conversation with our guests via mobile, and that is always the best way contact us when needed. We may be working or sleeping at any hour, so knocking on doors or trying to find us is never the best approach. We respond promptly to texts.
Other things to note
We have a cat. The stairway was built 100 years ago for shorter people. We're eco-conscious and the house is friendly to folks with sensitivities to chemicals.
- Fragrance free house. We strive to be environmentally sensitive to create a safe space for highly sensitive people. Please leave scented products, fragrances, and aerosols at home and do not wear or bring into the house, clothes that have been dried with dryer sheets, as these are toxic to your host. We provide basic toiletries that are unscented or scented with essential oils only, and soft, fluffy, certified organic cotton towels.
- Please take your shoes off at the door and leave them on the cork mat.
- Please let us know when you will be arriving. If you need to change arrival time and especially if you're going to be arriving earlier than you told us previously, call or email us first. We need to be here to check you in and may not be able to accommodate last-minute early arrivals. Thanks!
