Interaction with guests
You determine how much interaction there will be. We will follow your cues. However, we really enjoy company and want to learn about other places and cultures.
Other things to note
We are a couple of middle age empty "nesters." We have two children who are in college.
We are very interested in other cultures and international politics. We very much enjoy the conversations, we have had with some of our guests. We travel as much as we can. Our most adventurous trip was backpacking in Ghana.
I expect our guests to be reasonably quiet; ie, no loud parties or quiet after 10 PM. Smoking is allowed only outside. When you use the kitchen, please, clean up after yourself. When you take showers, be mindful of the fact that California is experiencing a severe drought.

My family and I love to travel and explore new cultures. We are not timid, but pretty adventurous travelers. The most unusual trip my husband and I had was to backpack in Ghana.
We discovered vacation apartment living some years ago in Paris, in the Marais, totally immersed in the neighborhood, no tourists around. I will never stay in a hotel again, if I can help it. Living where the locals live and to interact with them is a huge part of the experience.
I was born in Germany and came to California when I was very young. You might say that I came on a whim, with hardly an idea what I was getting into. But it all worked out beautifully.
Renting to vacationers has always been a dream, one might say, it has been on the "bucket list." I rent out a room in my own house and have met so many wonderful people, mostly from countries other than the USA.
My Airbnb in Seatle is a sort of branching out. It will be a place for us to stay when we will visit our daughter, who moved here after college. In the meantime, it is a side job for her.
