Who doesn't love rules:)
Check in is in person only for new guests. Sue will meet you to get you settled in and is very flexible on time of day or night - just let me know. Return guests can self check in.
We ask for quiet time from 11 pm to 6 am. We appreciate quiet.
Please park in front of the house and use the front sidewalk to the side door. The yard next to your side door entrance is private property.
We ask for shoes to be removed, they can be left in the back stairwell or in your closet in the shoe tray. We appreciate no shoes worn upstairs as we are right below. This is a preference so if you need to wear clean dry shoes inside that is absolutely fine.
There is no smoking on the property, at the park or near the neighbors property per their request. You know the drill, so the alleyway is an option.
Ok this is where it gets real - guests who are have arguments, drama, smoke in the house or get too intoxicated/use drugs will have their stay canceled with no refund. This has yet to occur and we are confident the Airbnb community and the fabulous guests but have to be clear:)
I love the opportunity to meet people during their travels so I look forward to hearing from you! I have traveled around the globe & my future trips revolve around yoga. I grew up right in the area so know the fabulous local places & value the diversity of the neighborhood. I teach yoga in the Minneapolis area.
My hosting style is casual & flexible. I'm here if you need something & am happy to chill with you for a glass of wine or leave you in peace.
