House rules
This place isn’t suitable for children under 12 and the host doesn’t allow pets, parties, or smoking.
Free parking is available on the street. Very quiet neighborhood, especially if you plan on getting some work done. Free fast WiFi. The room has a working TV with Roku so you can watch Netflix & Amazon Prime. 10 minute walk to a bus stop if you want to go into Philadelphia.
FYI - The house in a suburban neighborhood, on the NJ side of the Delaware River. There is only one small convenient store three blocks from here, otherwise you need a car to go to a grocery store or shopping etc.

The space
My father & I both live at the house. My dad is very quiet and enjoys reading his paper in the morning with coffee, and doing his crossword puzzles. He doesn't get around that well, so he camps out in the living room most of the day.
There is a small loveseat in the back room, and a big screen TV, which you are free to watch during the day if you wish. You are free to use the kitchen to have coffee, or tea if you prefer. Let me know, and I will be sure to have tea on hand! I have everything you need if you like to cook. I only ask, that you clean up after yourself. I will always give you space in the fridge for your items. There is plenty of cabinet space for dry goods etc.

Guest access
You will have your own private room and share a bathroom with me. My dad has his own 1/2 bath and uses the shared bath to shower. The room has a queen size bed, and it's a fairly small room so there isn't any additional room for a cot. If you do have one additional person, it is $10 additional per night. The house is a rancher and could be a bit crowded with 4 people. If you are 2 people, it might be ok for a couple nights, but probably not convenient for extended stays.
I always have coffee and will have tea on hand if you let me know. I always have lemons, sugar, cream & honey.

Woodbury, New Jersey, United States

The neighborhood is a quiet family area, with tree lined streets. Lots of tweeting birds and chirping crickets. There are some parks along the Delaware River where you can take walks and some photos. You might even catch a few of our nesting American Bald Eagles fishing along the river. You will need a car for grocery shopping or any other shopping you might want to do.
There is a small convenience store 2 blocks away if you don't mind walking, where you can get a bagel, sandwiches and other small conveniences. We are on the New Jersey side of the Delaware River, about 10 miles from the bridge to go into Philadelphia.

During your stay
I do quite a bit of volunteer work with a disaster relief and humanitarian crisis group, Team Rubicon. I am sometimes deployed when a disaster occurs, like a hurricane etc. recently, I have been working supporting vaccination sites. If I know I'm going to be gone, I usually block those days, because my dad can't really assist you much. My dad is always home. He is a very nice old guy! He sits quietly in the living room, reads his paper & does his crossword puzzles. He usually doesn't turn the TV on until around 3, except on weekends, it could be earlier. You are more than welcome to sit in there with him or at the kitchen table. There is a big screen TV in the back room, which you may watch during the day. During warm weather, you are welcome to sit outside. We have a screened in gazebo.
I can provide you with lots of info on places to go and see in the Philadelphia, and alternative modes of transportation if you don't want to drive into the city. Parking can be around $30.
If you are interested in going to the Jersey Beach, they are from 1-2 hours away, depending on which beach. South Jersey has some lovely countryside, farms, wineries, Amish markets and the always entertaining Cowtown Rodeo and Flea Market. The rodeo is seasonal and on Saturdays. The Flea Market is Tuesday & Saturday, year round, weather permitting. Good eats, antiques and other trinkets.
