I live on the premises so I can be available to answer questions or concerns. If you like cats, I will let my cat visit downstairs as he is very friendly and mellow. Otherwise, I will respect your wish for privacy.
If you need to be picked up from the airport and I am available, I will do so for a reasonable fee. I prefer to be contacted by email rather than (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN).

Please feel free to ask for clarification or if you need something.
I am an active independent woman with a full life and many interest such as Buddhism, social justice, nature/ gardening, plays and singing in a choir.
I believe in giving back to the community so throughout the year I volunteer: fostering sick cats, tutoring in English, coordinating getting seniors gifts at Christmas as well as fundraising for 2 of my favourite charities who do work abroad. I am inspired by accounts of people who are trying to make the world a better place.
I like all kinds of music but listen mainly to classical and Christian music. I spend a lot of time working on my gardens with my cat Snoopy supervising. He is very friendly and inquisitive who will greet you at the door with a leg rub.
I love learning about other cultures so I watch foreign films, eat international foods and read books on personal accounts of people from other lands. I speak functional Spanish.
I have always enjoyed the personal and relaxed atmosphere of staying at Bed and Breakfasts so I am pleased to be able to offer a similar service in my own home. It's a great way to meet and learn about new people.
