About this listing
Beautiful family home with quiet bedroom in our finished basement with a comfy Queen size Murphy bed. New renovations in the home, close to major highways, nature outings, tourist attractions, airport and welcoming hosts! Laundry and bikes incl.
Feel at home even when you'r away from your own!
This single bedroom is in our detached home and is about 14 feet by 11 feet --- the laundry/furnace room is conveniently beside the room. The Murphy bed has a real mattress and a memory foam so it is very comfy. Two mini closets to hang clothes are part of the bed frame along with drawers. The room is a comfortable cooler temperature than the rest of the house. There's no door, but we sleep two floors above the basement room, so it is private. It has a 30 inch flat screen TV with remote control, HDMI ready. Basic cable included.

Interaction with guests
We're very happy to help and I consider myself very accommodating, I want you to feel at home.
I'm off in the summers so I'm keen to help you with directions, recommendations, ideas on what to do or where to go.
My boys are very busy so I may not be here to entertain, but I'll be here for check-in and check-outs.
My husband works until the evenings and that's why we asked for a late check-in so we can still have our private family dinners. Don't feel you have to interact with us, you can go as you please, but if you like to play board games, we love playing them! But if you prefer your privacy just let us know, no problem.
If you need to be picked-up from the Waterloo airport or bus terminal in town, I can provide round trip for $30, bnb payment can occur through resolution center (we'll figure it out).
Other things to note

I live with my husband and our two boys. We love travelling ( my favorites are Hawaii, Paris and Barcelona) and I love trying new foods! We like playing board games and sports. I enjoy gardening, dancing, movies and reading books.
I'm a native Spanish speaker (hablo Español) and teach it in high school. I look forward to hosting and meeting new people. My husband has traveled to many places around the world for his job and even though he's an introvert, he enjoys sharing travelling stories. I consider myself outgoing, friendly and hospitable.
