Spend a little vacation on the mainland, pretending that you're on an da' beach of Hawaii. No worries, no stress because that's left at the office and at your own home. Your room is nestled above our carport, away from the rest of the house.
Come in. Welcome. Aloha. Please remove your shoes at the door and slide them under the shoe bench. There are new house slippers for you in the basket for you to use and keep. Mahalo. Would you like some homemade, fresh baked cookies while you are settling in? A soy latte?
My guests often don't want to leave as soon as they come over since its secluded with just a few windows in the front of the home. Its like being on vacation, in Hawaii. And what better person to host an AirB&B: a local islander, myself. Nope, I won't do the hula for you, even if I danced for years growing up on Oahu'. Haha!
Your guest room is located on the opposite side of the house, a bit far from the master bedroom & office; if anything, I can't hear a thing from your room to my room. So you will have lots of privacy in your space. The guest room has two brand new Ikea bed frames, comforters, sheets and pillows. You also have a key to lock your guest room door if you wish. There are brand new, plush hand, face, and body towels for you as well. As you can tell, my house is decorated mostly with Ikea furnishing -- its cheap, modern, comfortable and kid friendly, as how I enjoy living. I want my guests to feel welcome and not in a museum, not thinking they will break everything.

You may access the kitchen to prepare quick, simple meals as well as store your foods in my refrigerator. I believe I'm a great cook and can conjure up something to your taste if you wish. I have a full breakfast menu I can whip up as well, all homemade from scratch, mostly organic ingredients: blueberry pancakes, waffles, berry granola, veggie frittata, buttermilk biscuits, fruit/veggie smoothies, fancy coffees, and the list goes on. Hawaiian style: we accept gratuities for our cooked meals -- "no preh-shah" (pressure) as we say in slang; only if you feel like I did an amazing job. :)
Except for the master bedroom and office, you are welcome to roam and tour around the house. I have lots of board games in the toy room that you can play in the sunroom, lounge in the sunroom, get on the cycle or treadmill (or use my weights and yoga mat -- I can be a great exercise video partner if you wish to have company); you may also snoop into my yarn basket, seek your curiosity and knit as well (I'd be happy to teach you if you have the patience). I do have a TV screen and Comcast Cable w/HBO network (you can stream it on your computer); however, I still have yet to set up the cable on my tv. We do not watch tv but videos on occasion, which you are welcome to watch (we are avid outdoorsy people). Upon your request I can set it up the cable tv for you; just let me know. There are two full bathrooms that you may access, but be forwarned that one is decorated as a kid's bathroom if you don't mind . Just let me know what you need and I will provide you with my house warming services as much as I can.
Do also let me know in advance what foods you are allergic to and not care for.
There are a lot of space for parking as well.

I am a full-time student "again" (I'm in the medical field) and will be in and out of my home; for your privacy, my family will be scarce when you are our guests, as it will just be myself hosting. I will respect your privacy.
If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know. I can print out maps and inform you of the city.
I just purchased a brand new single-size futon bed that I am in the process of redecorating the toddler&kid playroom/study room. This room would be pefect for those that have kids -- I have lots of toys for boys and girls! (picture soon to come). An extra inflatable bed and the two couches are also available to sleep on. The two couches may not be fold-out beds, but are free to use to sleep on (the curdoroy couch is so comfy, I kid you not!)
In addition, please be aware that I may have another guest next to your room (with their closed door of course). I try not to double-book but be aware of their noise as well. I will inform you before hand during your inquiry of the other party that will also be in the house as to make sure you feel comfortable with the other persons. If not, please let me know and I can try to accomodate.
My home is quite peaceful as my neighbors are mostly retired and love that they don't hear much, if anything at all. The house is sort of secluded so you can mostly just hear birds outside chirping. Please be conscious of the noise -- aka, no pounding music blasting from my speakers. Turn it up as loud as you want, as long you stand outside you can't hear the "boom-boom" shaking. Haha.
My home is a smoke and pet free home. Oh, and island style: "please remove your shoes when entering my home…but no leave with the bettah kine!"
Laundry: Due to past guests asking to use my washer/dryer in access for just one night stay, I ask that the washer/dryer be only used for those staying more than one night. Its just cost effective for me as I am also using my washer/dryer for the linens to be used by you as well as the laundry that you need to wash for yourselves. Upon the second night of staying, the first load of laundry is free, again due to my low cost in base rate, I ask to charge $5 for additional per load of laundry. I am a conservative energy girl, paying for my further education through airbnb funds as well.
Please, NO smoking in my home; I am allergic to smoke. Mahalo.
Important note to state is that if I feel uncomfortable or feel you have stepped out of boundaries, making myself feel unsafe in my own home, I do have the right to say, "Sorry, you gotta go! Auntie doesn't like your style or I gonna tell da' neighbors to boot you out.."
