Off Limit Areas:
The small room across from the kitchen is my personal office/painting studio & is not available for common use. Also, the first room upstairs is Alex's home office and is not available for common use.

As we are undergoing a remodel we kindly ask you not to enter the back cottage or storage area behind the cottage. Thank you so much!

Interaction with guests

You may not see me much as I have a long commute, but I handle all online communications. My fiancé Alex will likely be available to greet you at check in, if not we will provide self check in instructions. We are happy to help with recommendations you may need & don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions at all.

Other things to note

Our tandem driveway is available as a loading zone only, there is usually plenty of street parking & also a free public lot on the corner of 5th & Depot Street (end of block).

Please note we have 2 sweet dogs, Lady & Otis. We recommend keeping guest doors closed if you don't want a furry visitor in your room, they love helping us host!

Locks & Keys:
A $100 lost key fee will apply for unreturned physical keys as we will need to replace locks for the security of ourselves and future guests.

We love the historical integrity of our home, but have some modern conveniences installed. Our voice activated Amazon Echo named "Alexa" is in the living room, kitchen & bathroom. She can turn on the lights, TV, play music and the radio, (radio in the shower too), and answer general questions. We will be happy to give you a demo upon arrival.

Alex and Amber's house was beautiful and they were both so welcoming! We are so glad we stayed here while we were in Morgan Hill. They were flexible when my relatives needed to check in before I got into town, provided a detailed tour of their house - the bedrooms, bathrooms, and other common areas that could be used (including a gorgeous outdoor area), and there was also signage throughout the house about how to turn on and use things like the TV. Coffee and breakfast foods were always readily available in the morning. Being walking distance from downtown Morgan Hill was so convenient, and there was consistently street parking available right by the house. I highly recommend booking with Alex and Amber if you are in the area!

This is one of the best Airbnb experiences I've ever had! Their house is just as adorable as you would expect from the pictures. The beds were super comfortable, the house was very clean, the backyard space was beautiful and inviting, and they even had coffee and a light breakfast available in the morning! I attended an event at the Morgan Hill Community Center, which was a short walk away and was incredibly convenient. I absolutely recommend this Airbnb to anyone staying in the area!

When booking with Amber and Alex, we were looking forward to spending time in a charming Victorian home that was walking distance to a small downtown area. What we actually booked far exceeded our concept of what Airbnb had to offer. Amber and Alex have thought of so many details that make the room you stay in a perfect home away from home. They have lovingly decorated their home and it is very welcoming. Just after arrival we found ourselves relaxing in the living room sharing easy conversation and getting to know their wonderful dogs. We utilized their patio at all times of the day and evening. We comfortably made breakfast in their kitchen. Amber and Alex are a warm and caring couple. They are easy to connect with, available to answer any questions and happy to help when needed. They are also are very comfortable with giving you your own space to enjoy your stay. We felt like part of their home, neighborhood and community. Our stay was fantastic and we look forward to returning.

We were looking at hotels only a little less expensive and with one room to share for my husband and mother-in-law to share when we found this amazing place where we had two rooms and practically the whole amazing house! Alex and Amber are So sweet and made us feel comfortable. The back patio is especially sweet and we loved spending time there with family. The dogs...Ottis and Lady... They are precious!!

Thank you for stopping by our about page. Alex and I are a couple of 30-something creative professionals that work from home and love traveling and hosting on airbnb!

We love enjoying the weekends with our 2 fur babies around town as we can walk everywhere! We especially love the farmers market open year round on Saturdays, grabbing a craft brew at The Running Shop and Hops, and dining out at our favorite spots like Odeum & Trail Dust BBQ.

As hosts Alex and I want you to know we will never deny a guest based on race, age, gender, religion or sexual orientation. We hope you will find us to be considerate and friendly people, and open our home to the same. Thanks again for stopping by!
