Interaction with guests
I will be here to get you settled in and show you how everything works. I will also be available should you have questions during your stay but out at work a lot of the day and am out and about a lot at other times too.
Quiet and safe neighborhood. Easy access to biking/hiking trails. Fresh Air.
Public transport is pretty bad. There is a shuttle - Cloud 9 that can get you here from the airport but then you would have to rely on cabs to get you anywhere or have a 30 minute walk to a bus stop. Uber is well represented here.
Other things to note
The dogs are here all day, we are not suitable for people with allergies.
We are a small family with a large house and love having out of town guests, that being said, we usually get you settled in and then leave you to it.
Just to clarify, one adult and one child, plus two dogs will be living in the house during your stay. I have 2 other rooms to rent as well as the one you are looking at. Therefore there may be other people in the house during your stay in other rooms. Ask me to clarify at the time of your booking if that is a concern for you. When available the 3 bedrooms on the top floor can be rented together to give you ultimate privacy upstairs.
Please respect quiet time from 11pm to 7am. That means talking in low voices, keeping the TV low and not doing laundry or cooking during that time.
Non smokers only please!

We are a small family with a large house. Originally from England, we settled in sunny Southern California over 20 years ago and are now completely content to call it home. Having discovered the state and the country from a tourist's eye originally. I think I have a handle on what to see and what to skip. I can also give you the insider's guide to the theme parks and best beaches for your needs.
Over the years we have had more house guests than we can count. As such we have the "host thing" down. The home from home vacation experience not only saves you money, it gives you so much more flexibility. Feel free to cook a full meal or rustle up a snack in the kitchen. If there's something you will specifically need during your trip, send me a message before hand and I'll let you know if we already have it.
I work locally in marketing and my son is busy with school, sports and whatever is his current obsession. I will be here to get you settled in and am always around if you have questions, don't hesitate to ask.
