We brought our family cargo bikes and were able to ride almost faster then driving to the beach, bakery, shopping, grocery, etc. And we walked to the bus to the city! Very quiet one way street.

Christina's place was great! Perfect for our group and within a 10 minute drive to downtown. Situated in a lovely quiet neighborhood we couldn't have asked for a better place!

We had a great stay, everything you need plus some was at Chrystina's house and she's the nicest! Off street parking was convenient, location was great and the big value for her large space were the pros. Cons were very very minor, one living room window without privacy curtain, one of the beds had a bit of a harder mattress. Lastly, just in case it might help, the TV is upstairs in a bedroom. (We didn't mind since we don't watch) Overall, fantastic stay. We traveled 7 hours and felt right at home.

Chrystina User ProfileChrystina is a superhost.

I am currently in massage therapy school, which occupies most of my time, though I do manage to work on some freelance and volunteer projects as well. I'm also obsessed with good food and will gladly entertain any questions about our local food scene from farm to fancy restaurant.

If you love food, you'll love it here! My house is (very) slowly adopting some permaculture principles and little by little, I'm adding more edibles to the landscape (apples, cherries, rhubarb, strawberries, cranberries and volunteer pansies so far).

Other than that, I facilitate groups on challenge courses, coordinate student activists to reduce bottled water use on college campuses, create art and music, paint other people's walls for money, and generally look after my house and guests.
