Starting a family and visiting
During these last few years, I have noticed an influx of a new kind of guest, one who is visiting a loved daughter or son as they welcome a new baby. The daughter or son live in the neighborhood and need a place that offers one week or longer stays.
The creation of new life and family reminds me of my own family and how privileged I feel being a father to three ladies and one boy. Not all worked well during visits. Family would be together but we all slept less. When my older daughter was born, my parents would come visit and we could offer limited options. At the time the only choice for them while visiting, was lodging at a hotel or sleeping in our tiny apartment. My ex wife and I would give them our bed and sleep on the couch. The first option was expensive and the second would transform a wonderful occasion such as being together into quite a bit of stress. Furnished apartments were not available.
This observation and desire to offer well designed living spaces are what guided me into offering short term furnished apartments.
It is nice to have mom and dad visit, but it can add stress if housing is the living room couch. I am happy we help new families.
