Bed question

    I'm a potential host (still working out all the kinks on how to make this work) who would be offering a private room and shared bathroom in a charming, quiet home. I have so much to offer a guest - privacy, amenities, close to a major city (15-20 mins to downtown), house and room beautifully decorated, etc etc

    My major concern is that the room has a twin bed (foam mattress with optional down or gel topper) and not enough room for a full bed (possibly but too me it would look cramped) I literally just bought the bed as I had a friend staying with me a few weeks ago and she has several health issues and I wanted the room and bed to be as relaxing and comfortable as possible for her. She said the bed was very comfortable. I loathe the idea of putting in a new bed after just buying one but wonder if a twin bed would be a deterrent? I actually can't sleep comfortably on anything less than a full/double but those are my issues. I plan on marketing the room to solo travelers, as really, I think one person is all I can handle to start. Thoughts?

    I thin your bed will work great! You will only deter some that want to try to put 2 in your room. You can set your limit to one guest to make that more clear.

    It's been a while since you posted about your bed issue. I was wondering how it's turned out. I'm a host who only offers single accommodation in my fairly large one-bedroom house. I could offer it to 2 people but the problem is, as with your place, there's just one bathroom; and that's a big deal for me. I can handle coordinating the morning shower/poop and pee ritual with one person, but when you add another into the mix it gets tricky because I'm on a fairly tight schedule. I need to get showered and shaved and out the door within a certain time frame so I can be to work on time.

    You're not going to make that much more with having a 2nd person there, and the inconvenience is not worth it. You also attract a different type of traveler, my type. Loners! lol
