My place is close to Deanwood Metro, Minnesota Ave Metro, many food options, gas stations. You’ll love my place because of the quiet, south facing windows, cleanliness, plants and herbs in house. There are no pets, no drama, little noise inside my home. My place is good for solo adventurers and business travelers.
This space is for WOMEN ONLY. No boyfriends, husbands, sons, bffs etc irregardless. My home is for WOMEN ONLY. If you're not sure you qualify look somewhere else. WOMEN ONLY!
This space is very quiet, in the cuts, walking distance to metro but far enough away not to hear the train at night. Still has city noises (sirens etc.) but has a country feel especially when the weather is right, with the windows open and a gentle south facing breeze. Herbs and flowers grow along the windowsills to create a pleasant, peaceful aroma.

I will be in and out, sleeping in the living room. I can give you directions or some advice here and there. I may seem short tempered or distant at times, it's usually just fatigue and a busy schedule, please don't be offended. I work from home, if I am sitting or standing around my living room on my phone I am working and may be too busy to entertain your requests.

If you are not sure if you or your guest qualifies, they don't and best of luck to you finding a space.

Only the person or people who booked this space are authorized to enter the space. Do not book this space for your friend, sister, mother, daughter, roommate etc. If they cannot book this space themselves they need to go elsewhere, not my home. Do not bring your friends, family, etc. into my home at all for any reason.
You will not check in before 3 pm or check out after 11 am for the days you booked the space.
I am vegan respect my kitchen if you are bringing your own food.
Cannabis and burning herbs is okay in your room. There is an ashtray on the windowsill, please use it and refrain from burning holes in the sheets. You will incur fees for damage to the sheets, blankets etc.
No cigarette smoking in my home. If you are a habitual cigarette smoker please air yourself out a bit before tracking the scent of burning death into my home.
I need a quiet guest or someone just looking for a bed, I'm a little too busy working to be a good friend even to my good friends. I tend to work late and wake up early, communicate with me if you know you will check in late or leave early.
In general, communicate with me before you arrive to check in. I can sometimes make arrangements to be home when you check in and sometimes I won't be home. Refrain from simply popping up at my door without warning or notice to reduce the chance of you waiting for extended periods of time to enter my home.
For multiple night stays allow me some time to enter my bedroom to water my plants, change clothes, your sheets, etc. I may need to paint so I will communicate that with you but do be mindful and keep the windows (and door) open to keep the air fresh.
I will not bother you, your possessions or your space. The bedroom is the coolest room with the best ventilation, if you are comfortable keep the bedroom door open or cracked so the rest of the apartment can get a breeze when the weather is warm. Not required but appreciated.
No wearing shoes in my home, leave them by the door or take them in the room with you.
Lock the door at all times. There is no excuse not to lock the door. There is no trip too short to not lock the door. Only lock the top lock when I or anyone else is home, lock both locks when the apartment is empty.
Do not flush anything other than toilet paper and waste down the toilet. Failure to do so will incur fees from the plumber ($200 +).
Do not remove the hair catcher from the bathtub drain. It is blue and sticks out from the drain and has over 40 holes in it. It's NOT there to block water but to block your hair from going down my drain. Failure to abide by this rule will incur fees from the plumber ($200 +).
I have taped one side of the shower curtains to the wall to prevent water from leaking onto the floor. Do not remove the tape or separate the shower curtain from the wall, you will incur the fees to repair the walls and floors due to water damage ($1,000 +).
Be respectful with your electricity usage. Leaving lights on overnight, leaving things plugged in for days and unplugging large appliances from the power strip may cause an outage which the guest will be responsible for fees from the electrician ($200 +).
Take off your makeup before using my sheets and towels. Failure to do so and permanent stains will incur fees for cleanup and replacement of stained/damaged goods ($30 +).
Be reasonable about the mess left behind you when using my space. A few hairs and spots is expected but leaving excessive rings on the tub, hundreds of hairs and massive smears and makeup (see above) will incur a $50 minimum clean up fee.
Many of my possessions are in the rooms you will use during your stay, the bedroom, bathroom etc., these are items are mine and are for me to use only. Do not use anything of mine in my home without contacting me ahead of time unless it has been mentioned that you can use it elsewhere in this ad. Items like my paintbrushes, books, scrub brush, pumice stone, hair and body products, etc. are OFF LIMITS for your use. You have no reason whatsoever to go in any of my drawers, cabinets, cupboards, medicine cabinet or closets for anything during your stay. I repeat, do not go looking around in my home through my things for anything at all without contacting me first and getting my approval.
Do not take anything from my home at any time for any reason, this is theft.
If you break or damage something of mine in my home message me about it ASAP. Do not try to cover it up, replace the item or just take the evidence with you to cover your tracks. Contact me asap if you damage or destroy my possessions.
If English is not your first language and you have trouble reading and understanding these rules, message me about them. If you still cannot understand these rules, look for another space to rent.
Thank you for reading all of these house rules, I hope you enjoy your stay in my home and have safe travels along your journey.
