Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

We do like our house to be kept clean and well maintained but we also believe our house is a home so sprawling on the lounge to read a book is also acceptable. We do not allow smoking inside and we have no pets. We would like our garden and plants to be kept watered.
