Available Now: Fully furnished home in the Heart of Fairhaven

My home is Available NOW - February 2019: I'm traveling at the end of October, and I'm excited to meet you — either a couple, or two great professional people/scholars who are non-smokers, and have no pets.

My home: 1910 craftsman, gas heat, big kitchen, two full baths, whimsical living room, window box seats for cozying up, dining room, new appliances, sun porch with couches and writing desk, bookshelves filled with books to read, cookware, microwave, gas range. Located just a 3-minute walk from the historic village of Fairhaven in Bellingham and just a short bus-ride or bicycle commute to Western Washington University, and 4 blocks from Ferry Terminal, Bus, Amtrack.

You'll enjoy two large fully-furnished rooms upstairs, two full baths (one upstairs and one downstairs) a large living room, dining room, and common spaces in the house (I will keep my bedroom and attic space private. *I'm seeking people who are open to the very slim possibility of my coming back earlier than June, and re-establishing in 3rd bedroom, thus becoming housemates for a given amount of time OR staying away for a more extended period of time than listed.)

Ours is a tight-knit neighborly neighborhood with people who enjoy having conversations in backyards, on porches, and when we see each other on the trails.

I'm asking $725 a month for each room + utilities (rental includes bedding, supplies, sundries) Essentially, rental of two rooms is rental of entire house minus one room which I will use as storage) + there is also the possibility of using my manual transmission Jetta for an added small monthly fee.

Excited to meet you and introduce you to my home and wonderful neighborhood!

About Me
As a playwright and director, I've enjoyed working for 30 years with students K-12 in the community of Bellingham and for five years as an adjunct professor at Western Washington University. I've lived and traveled abroad as a student, and now I'm traveling abroad as an educator/director/playwright — devising theatre based on interviews. My lovely old craftsman home, in one of Bellingham's sweetest neighborhoods, has become a place where many Airbnb guests have gathered together around the kitchen table to talk about their travels and to share ideas on how to make the world a kinder place. I have enjoyed becoming a SuperHost with Airbnb. I love great conversations, exploring new places, and meeting vibrant people. I speak French, love to run, bike tour, and hike in our beautiful Cascade mountains.
