Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

Please treat my home as your own and take good care of it. It will be very clean when you arrive and I appreciate you leaving it the same. Please be courteous to my neighbors and avoid loud noises after 11 p.m. No pets are allowed as there are deer with fawns and other wildlife in the backyard. Children are welcome although my home is very small and there is a seasonal creek, so close supervision will be necessary.
