Lodging & Meals

The dwelling can be an apartment, bed & breakfast, condominium, guest house, home, hotel (PREFERRED), or townhome. Please make the reservation well in advance to get the best price and availability. We make these requests because of bad experiences in the past. Please ensure the dwelling meets the following criteria:

  • Smoke-free dwelling: Dwellings that accommodate smokers expose guests to secondhand smoke, its toxic residue, and the unpleasant stench of stale smoke. The US Surgeon General says there is no safe level of exposure to secondhand smoke. Exposure to secondhand smoke causes lung cancer, heart disease, emphysema, asthma, pneumonia, bronchitis, allergies, and ear, nose, and throat conditions.
  • Secondhand Smoke | Cedars-Sinai
  • Health Effects of Secondhand Smoke | CDC
  • Pet-free dwelling (except for guests with service dogs): Pet-friendly dwellings accommodate pets in any room and expose guests to fleas, ticks, dander, soiled carpet, foul odors, and pet noise. The American Lung Association says pet allergens cause irritation to the eyes, nasal congestion, coughing, breathing difficulties, allergies, eczema and rashes.
  • Pet allergy – Symptoms and causes – Mayo Clinic
  • Pet Dander | American Lung Association
  • Unoccupied.
  • Clean, not dusty, musty, moldy or damp. Running an air purifier or opening windows does not eliminate odors.
  • Secure, with lockable doors and windows.
  • Quiet AC and heating that works.
  • Microwave and refrigerator.
  • Good quality bed with soft/medium mattress. No bedding with stains or odors. Clean linens.
  • AC power outlets. Workspace (i.e. chair and desk).
  • User name and password for WIFI (if available).
  • Closet, hangers, and hanging space.
  • Toilet paper, box of tissues, and fresh soap.
  • Clean towels, hand towels, and wash cloth.

Please provide lunch at a restaurant. No meal required before a service or after an evening service. If you book a hotel or motel, one with a restaurant and room service is preferred. Many hosts leave a “Welcome Fruit Basket” in the dwelling. A welcome basket is not necessary, but Frank would appreciate some hand sanitizer and several bottles of drinking water for each night’s stay (Aquafina preferred).

Please complete payment before Frank arrives. Thank you for accommodating Frank in a dwelling that provides a secure, clean, comfortable, and healthy environment.
