As much as the guest would like, within reason. First thing in the morning and check in through their stay. We try to be sensitive to our guests need for privacy as well as social time while balancing those same needs for ourselves. Our home is non smoking and while we have a dog and cat, other pets may prove problematic. We are approachable and willing to discuss with guests who are travelling with pets.
Please advise us of your arrival time! This is important as we are active people and may not be here when you show up UNLESS you advise us of your estimated time of arrival - ETA. If we don't know when you are arriving or no arrangement has been made then you will not be able to access your room.
Please advise us of your arrival time by phone or text especially with ferry travel, it can be problematic. If your arrival time is unknown to us then you may not be able to access your room until later in the day as we may be out. Other than that, no smoking or late night party goers; friendly, well mannered, interesting guests are always welcome. We remind you we have 1 cat and 1 very friendly dog so this is NOT a house for people with cat allergies. Even though our pets live outdoors mostly, they are welcome indoors too.
We are friendly & eclectic and enjoy good company, good food and great, active adventures too. Both Ray & I have travelled lots, so know what's appreciated when on the road. This area is less travelled and perfect for those who enjoy being part of the land and part of the water. There are lots of things to do OR do nothing - maybe read a book, enjoy the deck or beach, catch up on your sleep, meander through the garden and yard, wander around the area sightseeing or meditate in the shade of a tree.
Ray & I love meeting fellow travellers. There's so much to do in our patch of paradise! Hiking, biking. kayaking, sailing, water play of all sorts. With 3 beaches nearby we are in an ideal place for some activities or down time. While living in the country, we recycle, compost, grow a garden and strive to live locally.
Robin's background is based in health & wellness and she offers massage services of relaxation, deep flow, hot stone, Raindrop and Indian Head Massage. In addition, Robin offers yoga at her studio for a class or self-practice: there's always room in the back yard or the house!
Ray is an experienced mountaineer of many years having climbed & trekked some of the big ones around the world; semi-retired, a sailor, hiker, paddler of different water craft, generally a pretty active guy.
We offer what we like to have when on the road: a comfortable and clean bed, a kitchen to cook in, wi-fi, tv, a loan library, your own bathroom - all the amenities to unpack your bags - laundry facilities to get you sorted and ready for the next leg of your trip.
We live 14 km south of town and advise you to have your own transportation. Although there is a bus and we are on its route, the service is limited. There are 2 convenience stores, one within a block walking distance and the other 3 km away. There is a great restaurant less than 2 km away. We do have one big, friendly girl dog and one loving tomcat, so please be aware they are part of our household - in and out doors!
We've travelled using airbnb several times and have enjoyed all of our stays. Whether it's peace & privacy or making new friends, Cead Mille Failte! A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!
