Interaction with guests
I live in the main house and will greet you when you first arrive and show you some of the features of the property. I will be available during your stay to assist your needs. You may see me from time to time tidying up the pool or pool area. I am happy to allow as much privacy or engagement as you prefer.
Other things to note
I rely on your input to improve your stay so if you have any requests prior to or during your stay let me know and I will do my best to accommodate.
The kitchen is minimalist and is well-equipped for basic cooking, toasting and microwaving but not ideal if your plan is to do baking or gourmet cooking. There is a mini fridge, and a toaster oven, microwave oven, double hot plate, coffee maker, and electric kettle for cooking. There is an outdoor gas grill with a side burner for additional cooking options.
The pool is heated by solar panels which can achieve a temp of 82 degrees in the summer but in the winter pool temp runs in the 60s to low 70s. The jacuzzi is heated on demand to 103 degrees and is available throughout your stay. There is an option to gas heat the pool for an additional $50 per day.
There are no on-site laundry facilities. I can provide you with the details of fluff and fold services in the area.
- Must be age 30 or older to book.
There is an unfenced pool on the premises, for safety reasons, not suitable for guests with young children.
No smoking allowed on the property. There will be an additional $250 cleaning fee charged to guests if evidence of smoking. Thank you for your cooperation.
I enjoy the healthy living that Southern California has to offer. I often walk from my house to the beach and throw the ball for my dog. I am a mother, and work as a doctor.
