Will help you with information and recommendations as needed.
We're a mature couple, thoughtful, worldly, generous and outgoing. Empty nesters. We love the internet, cell phones, books, conversations, food, community, peace on earth, sustainability, Landmark Worldwide and each other. Life motto: "Act with integrity."
We welcome good-natured, responsible people into our home to share all our common rooms, linens, kitchen. We're clean, neat, love beauty (the house is beautiful, quiet, peaceful, elegant, comfortable). If you need help orienting to the United States, New Jersey, or the area, we are knowledgeable and willing to help.
We even have an extra car to loan you, if you have a license.
And if you would like "coaching" while you're with us (work/school, relationships, how to deal with Americans, or what to do in the area) feel free to ask, either in general, and for specific issues. We're great personal coaches.
We like to sit down with you soon after you arrive, so we can get to know each other, feel comfortable together, make requests of one another, and generally have an atmosphere in the house that's open, honest, generous, respectful, trusting, among ourselves and other guests. We're open to feedback of any kind, especially if we can provide a more comfortable, secure, welcoming stay with us.
Our philosophy of life is 'save the world and have fun doing it!' Every crisis is an opportunity. As Paul Hawken said: if you look at the state of the world, you can't help and be depressed -- but if you look at the people trying to do something about it, you can't help but be inspired!
We know that our interpretations impact our perceptions, and it's our commitment to listen to people for who they are committed to being. Which means, we will interact with you as our guest in a very positive and generous way. This does not mean we need to know much about you, so don't think we will invade your privacy. There are people who come and go without saying hi, and that's totally fine with us. If there's ever a time that you believe we are not interacting with you in the way you would like to be interacted with, please let us know and we'll see what mutually works!
Otherwise, it's up to you to let us know anything more we can do to make your stay one that you have fond memories of, both of the place and the people in it.
In partnership as members of the human race that are trying to make a difference in the world!
Victoria Zelin Cloud and Jonathan Cloud
