Renting to those with jobs or school seems a better fit compared to those without one. Being at home all day seems to create schedule conflicts, for example - those with no jobs stay up late - and other lifestyle differences. Therefore generally prefer students and those with JOBS. They make the best fit.

(Presently occupied by 1 vegan, 3 vegetarians, a pescatarian couple, and an internationally renowned chef and artist. And of course, our 80-year-old grandma and son. In each case, we are thankful for this refuge, free from smoking, drinking, and such. Looking for those of similar lifestyle.

Examples:
Those transitioning into vegetarian diet or sobriety. Something of a Luxury Buddhist temple-like ‘asrama’ setting for those of goodness.

We have hosted 3,000 + guests over the last 35 years of renting - about 1,000 of them were renters. We cater this Yogi lifestyle - small, but strong niche market here on the Big Island.)
