We occasionally rent out a very quiet
room on our third floor during the week. Weekends are
negotiable. It has a microwave, a small refrigerator and
kettle, but we do not provide kitchen privileges. There is a
shower and toilet for the use of the third floor. We live on
the second floor with our own bathroom and kitchen. Our
children have gone. We have a cat.
We provide bedding and towels. You may
use our basement laundry free of charge but you must provide
your own detergent. Utilities are included. We expect you to
keep the spaces you use clean and tidy at all times, and
especially to avoid giving our own cleaners extra work when
they come every two weeks.
As you can see from the layout, the floor
is not completely private since Dominick's day time office is
in one of the three rooms on the third floor, and you have to
go through it to the bathroom. The office contains a television
set which we watch from time to time in the evening, but never
after 10 pm and not if it disturbs you (we can always tape
specific programmes and watch later). Occasionally we have a
friend staying in the unoccupied room. To give you privacy in
the mornings, we suggest you close the door at the head of the
stairs to the third floor when you get up in the morning and
leave it open when you depart for the day.
Since it is our own space, we have to go
through the usual hoops of references and credit check. At the
end of each week, you are expected to pay your rent for the
following week or either side can give a week's notice. It is
intended for consecutive weeks' occupation even if you are away
for some nights.
