Your Asian experience is in secluded home, on a quiet cul de sac in a nice neighborhood. Get that home-away-from-home experience when you stay us. (Great for traveling nurses!)

If you are needing to use the sofa bed, please contact me and we will try to make arrangements. It is located in the living room which is a shared space.

Location

About a five minute drive from our home there is a small park( road next to Sheetz) that has a running trail, boat rentals and fishing equipment rentals called, Ivy Creek Park.

A new Starbucks is just opening up nearby the above mentioned park.

We are in proximity to numerous restaurants.

Our neighborhood has a friendly feel. We live off a cul-de-sac so it's a good place to walk or jog.

Hello (or Ni Hao in Chinese)! My name is Sandy and I'm excited about the chance to give you a great Airbnb encounter! Much of my young life was spent moving and experiencing different customs and cultures. My husband, children and I have hosted people over 35 years while living 20 of them in East Asia and encountering numerous adventures. Our family goal was to be a place where visitors could receive pampering, a shower, good food and a listening ear. A dream come true was finding a house in Forest, Virginia. We feel secluded in the middle of town! As for myself, I enjoy working outside; making 'something out of nothing'; and helping people heal. A principle I like to live by is: Leave every place you visit better than when you got there.
