Other things to note
There is so much nature to behold. House is located on a small beautiful gated ranch. Surrounded by properties with acreage. Horses, goats, cows and peacocks in the neighborhood. Very peaceful with views of the east and west hills. Watch the sun rise and the hills turn magnificent gold when the sun sets, hear the roosters, enjoy the fresh eggs available for purchase for breakfast, be amused at African guinea hens chase after each other, sit by the fire and gaze at the most beautiful night sky ever!
No visitors, please. Only paying guests are welcome on the property.
Please wash your own dishes. Be water-wise.
Please do not allow very young children on the upper bunk.
Young children must be potty-trained or be in diapers when sleeping.

Moving to Back-to-Eden Ranch was a dream come true for me. Slowly but surely, my husband and I are in the process of transforming this place into a paradise for our kids and grandkids. Although this involves much work and labor, it brings us joy to watch our grandchildren's contented faces all stained with juices from the tomatoes and berries they pick. Watching my younger kids diligently caring for their chickens assures me that they will grow up to be responsible adults. Although my partner-in-life – my beloved hubby – spends all his free time tending to this land, I know it is good for man to connect with his garden again. As for me, being a mother, a grandmother, a wife, a teacher, and everything else that I am reminds me I have a lot to thank God for in this life.
As a host: I like to give my guests their privacy. I think most guests just want a clean, peaceful place to relax.
