Nuestras preferencias

Lo qué nos gusta y lo qué no... Estas son nuestras preferencias y normas domésticas.

We are an adult home and not suited for children (it is not childproof). We would like the house to look like we left it. One of us is VERY allergic to cats, & fur animals.
I prefer you do not use my china dishes in the sideboard. There are plenty of dishes in kitchen area.
We prefer eating is done in the kitchen/ dining room and the Den/TV/Second Bedroom area not the living room.
We will leave a booklet about our house and equipment and a friendly neighbour to ask questions to.
Relax and enjoy all that Vancouver has to offer.
