##### NOTE #####
Even though the room has a bunk bed for two occupants, if you book the room for one guest, you will have exclusive use of this entire room, without sharing with another guest.
When designing this space, I travelled back and fro between my two roles: Airbnb host and Airbnb guest. I asked myself: as a frequent Airbnb guest, what do I value most if I can only name two things? My answer is, resoundingly, a Clean space and a Comfortable bed.
With this vision, I allocated 70% of the room refurnishing budget to mattress and bedding. After a long day, it's time for you to pamper yourself with this Select Luxury 10-inch AirFlow Foam mattress and star hotel bedlinen. I feel thrilled whenever my guests tell me how much they enjoyed the comfortable bed and the professionally cleaned and ironed bedlinen.
My metaphorical mysophobia also drove me to a higher standard of cleanness. I go extra miles to have two on-site cleaners to take care of the eight-guest-room house. Again, nothing makes me feel better than hearing guests say "This room is freaking clean," or "This is the cleanest Airbnb room I've ever stayed in." If you have a habit of sleeping naked, feel assured to do so because "cleanness" is guaranteed. Thanks go to Ping and her husband, who conscientiously maintain the standard of "cleanness" of this Airbnb home.
There are 8 guest rooms in this 2-storey house with 1 restroom on each level and 1 eat-in kitchen in the basement.
Basic, self-service breakfast include bread, cereal and instant noodle. You are welcome to use the kitchen appliances and cookware.

Atención a los huéspedes
Because I am traveling most of the time, I appreciate it if you can help yourself check in and check out. This being said, I will be always available to answer questions and provide assistance via Airbnb messaging or phone call. If there is an emergency, call me or go to the basement unit and knock on the door.
Otros aspectos destacables
 This building has potentially 8 private guest rooms (though some of them might not be rented out during your stay). All guests share 2 bathrooms. If you are not comfortable sharing the bathrooms with other Airbnb guests, please do NOT book this room.
 The rooms are very clean and comfortable, but perhaps too minimalist for people who wish to have a longer stay.
 Some light sleepers might find it a little noisy at night because the wall is not very sound proof.
 Regardless of the length of your stay, for logistic reasons, we are only able to provide: (1) one room cleaning service prior your arrival; (2) one set of bedding per bed, including two pillows with cases, one duvet with cover, and one flat sheet; (3) one bath towel per guest.
 Self-service laundry is available in the basement for $4 USD.
 There are two parking options: (1) Unreserved parking. Upon your arrival, please look for a Visitor's Parking Permit in the mailbox beside the entrance. With this Permit, you can park your car in the designated areas in the neighborhood by following the information printed on the reserve of the Permit. We can only provide 2 Permits for our guests, on a first-come-first-serve basis. We cannot accept reservation for the Visitor Parking Permit. Availability is usually of no problem, but we cannot guarantee. (2) Reserved parking. There is only one parking lot on premise. You can book it for $10 USD per day through a separate Airbnb link: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/21406396?
