Общение с гостями
This is my home so I live here.
Please respect the rights of every housemate to quiet enjoyment of the facilities
Keep noise down to reasonable levels at all times. After 9:00 pm, any sound generated within your room should not be audible in any other room. Some residents have early starts in the morning. It can be particularly noisy upstairs with wooden floors and doors slamming.
The common areas are regularly cleaned but please leave in a tidy state after you have used them. This is particularly important in the kitchen and bathrooms.
We practice recycling in this house as much as possible to protect our environment. Items such as plastic, newspapers, magazines, cardboard and drink containers or bottles are sorted into the green bin next to the rubbish bin. Please rinse food scraps off all rubbish as it is only put out once a week and can attract flies if smelly. Food scraps go in the compost. There is a small bucket on the bench for this.
Please close and lock the door behind you when you leave the house.
Towels are provided but not replaced every day in the interests of saving water (and our planet). Please ask if you require a fresh towel.
In Wintertime, heaters are provided. Heaters are very expensive to run. Please use them with respect by ensuring they are switched off when you go to sleep or leave for the day.
There are only two bathrooms for seven bedrooms. Please keep shower times under 10 minutes, time in bathroom under 20 minutes.
I have been hosting international visitors and students for several years now. I enjoy the cultural diversity this brings to my home and to Auckland.
I enjoy tramping in the nearby Waitakere ranges, and on other walking tracks in New Zealand. I am also a keen cyclist.
I enjoy travelling myself - both in New Zealand and overseas when I get the time.
