Boligen
FOR WOMEN ONLY! This room is on a FEMALE-ONLY FLOOR (one flight up from main floor). I entertain exceptions on a case-by-case basis by guest request. For example, I am generally willing to allow a female/male couple to reserve the room.
CONVENIENT: Room is steps away from a full bathroom, for which you will have preferential scheduling. A powder room on the main floor is also available to you as an auxiliary toilet.
NOISE: I like to keep a quiet, calm home. Having said that, there are always some noises that we cannot prevent – – the occasional barking dog, traffic noise, lawnmowers, leaf blowers, etc. Inside the home, as well as on the porch/deck, I ask that guests speak in an indoor voice and wear earphones during phone conversations. bearing in mind that others in the house may be resting studying, working, etc.
Take into consideration that the house is old and has it's own noises, such as stairs and wooden floors that have squeaks, which can carry from one floor to another; voices and cooking sounds may also be audible. If you have concerns you would like to discuss, please ask questions!
COMFORTABLE SLEEP: The double mattress in this room has a very comfy pillow top (not memory foam) and is appointed with 100% cotton sheets, down-filled duvet, 2 bed pillows (with an additional 2 pillows available). I carefully and lovingly launder bed linens myself in hot water with natural soap powders without artificial fragrances; I use organic cotton dryer balls to soften; I occasionally use lavender essential oil in the dryer, so let me know if you object to the smell of lavender.
ADAPTABLE LIGHTING: This bright northeast corner room has one north-facing and two east-facing windows, appointed with both mini-blinds and blackout curtains--so you can have tons of natural light, or none. Especially suited to people who prefer to sleep in a very dark room, or need to sleep/rest during daylight hours.
HEALTHY HOME: We try to keep our home very low-tox. Brita filtered drinking water is available. We use only ecologically intelligent cleaning, laundry and personal toiletries only, avoiding synthetic fragrances and harsh chemicals. Essential oils and very lightly scented natural Japanese incense are sometimes diffused.
FAMILY FEEL: This is a single family home, where I live. It looks and feels like a home, and operates like a hostel. Each person is responsible for cleaning up after themselves and being considerate of other denizens of the house.
PLEASE NOTE: I am undertaking ongoing improvements/repairs/renovations to both my house and landscape, so there may be times when tools and other materials are temporarily in spaces visible to guests.
OUTDOORS: There is a front porch and a rear deck available to guest to eat, enjoy nice weather, have quiet conversation, relax, etc. Please do not hold loud or long phone conversations in these spaces. I would prefer that phone conversations take place within the guest's room.
My property attracts wild birds, which can be spotted in the landscape around the house. Forty-five species, to my last count. A wild bird identification guide is available for guest use.

Arlington, Virginia, USA

LOCATION
Within minutes of DC, Alexandria, Falls Church, we are close to first rate international cuisines and entertainment, local and national parks, bike trails, museums, universities and endless other resources. Safe for walking, parking, bike-riding, etc. Community recreation center with outdoor, tennis, basketball court within 3 blocks.

HISTORY
Ours is an old Arlington neighborhood of single-family homes called Nauck, established by African-American freedmen, farmers and professionals in the mid to late 1800's. Although slowly gentrifying, it is still quite diverse, with a demographic of about a third each of black, latino and white residents. Due to its proximity to the sprawling greenspace known as the Army-Navy Country Club, you'll breathe a bit more oxygen in our neighborhood, as well as encounter more wildlife (mostly birds).

My motto: "Never give up; never surrender!" I have lived in my neighborhood since 1974, raising 3 children. I am a friendly introvert (some of my most entertaining conversations are with myself, but I am always open to a good dialogue with others!) and I revel in the details. I have a wide range of interests - biodynamic/urban farming, Buddhism, raqs sharqi, superfoods, wild birds, natural health. I enjoy learning new things every day, and would like to travel more in the future. I am very practically oriented, love to know how things work, but also settle easily into a meditation on WHY they work, and whether they are of value in the scheme of human progress. I perceive relationships between all beings and believe in the butterfly effect. I am an SGI Nichiren Buddhist practitioner, chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, and engage in activities for the peace and happiness of my self and my community on a regular basis. If the earthworms are happy, EVERYbody's happy. I vermicompost. I am an avid gardener, mostly of edibles, but also for the sheer beauty and connectivity of the natural world. My dream is to transform my property in an edible landscape. And, if you thought my motto seemed familiar, then you are probably a fan of "Galaxy Quest", one of my top ten favorite movies. I am an unabashed fan of intelligent comedies. I love 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, Arrested Development, Community, and Scrubs (except the last season). I have the heart of a 24-year old and am striving to refurbish the body it finds itself in at the moment. I enjoy a calm environment punctuated with laughter, some good jazz (Monk, Miles, Wayne Shorter, Brad Mehldau, Robert Glasper, Max Roach) and the occasional Led Zeppelin track played just above a reasonable volume. I study belly dance (really the best thing since sliced bread), and love just about any music that has a groove.
