During July through early September, there are sometimes people on the street outside, playing music. They are fun loving, but the music can be loud. The music is usually finished by 1030 at night. I have a loud fan for noise canceling purposes which does a good job of completely covering those sounds.
I can accept personal checks or cash for those guests looking to stay long term (over more than one week), as I have done with several previous guests. Guests will need to book the first four days through airbnb. The subsequent rate is cheaper, and can be discussed via email. We hold off on mutual reviews until the stay is complete.
