Welcome to our colorful little home overlooking the ocean. The house is clean, secure, and in a relaxing setting. You will have a private room and may make full use of the kitchen, bathroom, living room, front porch, and back porch/grilling area.
Almost everything you'd need is here. Just bring your easy-going self and your suitcase!
This is a row house (1 of 3) with a big front yard and a porch overlooking a lagoon and the ocean. The house is in a compound and the unit has steel bars and gates. We have security at night.
The location near the sea and breeze make this a great space to work or relax. No AC but don't let that scare you. It's considerably cooler here by the ocean - and there are fans.
Electricity is nearly constant (pretty much 24-7 since the Mount Coffee hydro plant upgrades) but we have a small generator as a back-up. And we also have running water (no hot water as is quite common here). Liberia Water and Sewer usually shuts off overnight but we have plenty of water stored so we'll never be without.
Our WiFi connection is pretty decent. You can usually stream, torrent, and download without much issue.
The neighborhood is pretty safe and people generally look out for each other. We've built good relationships with some of neighbors and speak to them regularly. Although people (especially children) sometimes drop by unexpectedly, it's nice to feel like you are part of the community.
The neighborhood/compound is rather peaceful and quieter than a lot of other places in Monrovia. FAIR WARNING...the music from the nearby shop plays a bit loud so do bring your earplugs just in case!
Although the distance is not far from town, traffic congestion can mean a lengthy commute. I travel to town before morning rush hour, which takes less than 30 minutes. If you are leaving between 7:30-10 it'll take twice as long.
Please make yourself at home! You can use kitchen equipment and appliances (fridge, gas stove, coffee maker, toaster, kettle, BBQ, and washing machine).
If you want full or partial catering please discuss this with me. I can provide delicious meals at a very reasonable price. Actually I love cooking and will often share anyway.
Общение с гостями
We generally take cues from our guest, and can interact as much or as little as you like. We can give you space or accompany you to the beach or bar.
Другие важные подробности
We have a dog (BB) and cat (Norman) in the house, and we have basically adopted a neighbor's dog (Nelson) who is always around. They all have fabulous temperaments and are kept clean and in good health. If you love animals, this will be the place for you!
I work to keep a clean house and hope that my guests will respect that (basically meaning hanging your towel to dry, wiping up spills, and not leaving food waste or dirty dishes in your room).
Lock all the steel gates when you leave or if alone in your room with the door closed.
You can smoke outside on the back porch... just mind the breeze.
Your visitors are welcome as long as they are well known to you and trustworthy. We're a little worried about theft so bringing a one night stand here is not something we're cool with.
Please turn off lights and fans when you aren't using them. And please recycle. Not sure what happens to it when they carry it away but I separate/rinse plastics and metals.

I'm a Canadian expat from Nova Scotia. I love learning, traveling, and talking to new people... and in my downtime I love great television. I lived and worked teaching English in China for six years but finally decided to go back to Canada to complete my BA. A master's followed and now I'm doing my PhD in Political Studies at Wits University (Johannesburg) and my dissertation research in Liberia.
I am a really open person and am definitely not shy. And I'm quite flexible -- I can hang with you and/or hang back and give you space. Either way, I'll do my best to make you feel at home. My husband Matthew will do the same, though he is usually only here a few days a week due to his work. He is a wonderful man who is LIB born and raised and knows all the ins and outs of Liberia.
I adore animals and have a young dog and cat (BB and Normie, respectively), and I feed a neighborhood dog (Nelson) who basically lives on the porch but sometimes sneaks in. If you love animals this is the place for you!
