Guest can utilize the kitchen. I'm an avid cook so if there's a gadget out there I probably have it. I do cook every day so if your planning on making a major meal we will need to coordinate. There's laundry in the basement. A side porch, open front porch, back yard with seating. We generally keep to ourselves and though we are by no means anti-social, at the end of a long day we tend to be in wind down mode and are not generally keep to ourselves. We are totally accessible for any information or request that you may have.
Since I'm a realtor I can tell you pretty much anything you need to know about the are, NYC, commuting etc. I'll provide the information but it will be up to you to carry it out. We both have pretty busy schedules. If anything additional is needed, like a writing desk or additional storage just ask in advance and we will work it out.
There is a park 1/2 block from our home. There's a good bit of wildlife here. All kinds of birds, wild turkeys, foxes, raccoon, ground hogs, tons of Deer.
Route 22 is near and has every kind of shopping imaginable. Though Plainfield city doesn't offer that many sit down restaurants there are lots of fast food options and if you want fine dining its no more that 5 miles away.
We are renting the room not so much the house so other than time in the kitchen or use of the dining room, yard etc., it would be ideal for us if our guest could mainly utilize their room. Its likely that we will be at work a good deal of the time anyway so there should be plenty of down time to walk around and enjoy the house. We keep our dogs in the laundry room in the basement when we are not at home and their is company. They are friendly and won't be a bother to anyone. We keep a clean house and appreciate it if guest clean up after themselves especially in public areas like the kitchen.
NO SMOKING OF ANY KIND, no incense or candles.
We are a married gay couple that have been together for 25 years. We moved to NJ a few years ago from NYC. We live in a nice quite neighborhood close to a park and about 2 miles from Jersey Transit. Our house is a Tudor style single family home with 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths. Its just the two of us and our two small dogs. We are happy to host short term stay guests as time permits. Our home is clean and fairly quiet. I'm a realtor and work 70% of the time in Plainfield, the rest in NYC. My husband is in the social work field and generally works m-f from about 9am-8pm. Our home is pretty laid back. We pretty much tend to keep to ourselves. We like to have a quite meal, watch some TV, play with the dogs and do some gardening but you will most likely find us buried in our computers.
We are both well travelled and have friends all over the world.
Though we are both now in our 50's we are not by any means a stodgy old couple. We are very connected to current events and are quite active. We generally get along with everyone.
A little respect and kindness goes a long way. Be true to yourself, treat others as you would have them treat you and be amazed and the riches that karma can bring :)
