It doesn't matter if the visitor contacted us via our website or is a friend or aquaintance of a resident. In all cases the visitor has to have a Songaian host. While it isn't common for visitors who are strangers to stay in our guest rooms, it has happened on past occaions. So to answer your question, yes we allow this. I believe that the Songaian who is contacted or who responds to a website or email contact, does inital screening to assess the intentions and purpose of the prospective visitor. Now that I am thinking about it, I believe that while its fairly common for a complete stranger to come visit, its quite rare for that person to spend one or more nights. There is no policy against it, rather I think the specific Songaian host involved judges what strangers seem appropriate to stay overnight. Douglas Larson, Songaia Cohousing
