Other things to note

We are happy to host guests even if we are not here personally.
It is not unusual for folks to come and go and we never meet them and no-one minds😊

What we offer is humble, homely and relaxing. :)

We are a teacher, nurse combination with an older teenage son still at home with us. We all work. I only work as needed. We have had visitors in our homes for many years now, with the wwoof program on our property at Seaforth and helpxers here too. We respect their cultural differences and enjoy showing them the beautiful places this area has, if that is what they want. Often travellers need to rest and gather strength so we like to provide a home where they can comfortably do this. Interaction with guests is as they want it - little or more. Our aim is to provide a comfortable stay no matter how long it is.

During your stay
As much or as little as they want. If you are on for a chat that's fine but if you want some space that's fine too :)
We are busy and often in and out so communication needs to be open and timely :)
We are not always home when guests arrive but we do leave a key out for everyone in the hh to use so just need to let us know your ETA.
Sometimes one or more of us is absent altogether but someone can call in if there are any issues.
