The apartment is a one bedroom, living room, bathroom, full kitchen and dining area apartment located in the back of my house. The apartment opens to the green area, the courtyard, of the house and to the pool, which guests are welcome to use. The apartment has its own private entrance and parking space.

The space

This is a great space with a Latin America flavor. The apartment includes a queen bed in the bedroom and a futon in the living room, which converts to a full bed if needed. In addition, you have a full kitchen at your disposal.

Guest access

I, or a designated person will be available for guests as they arrive to show the apartment and the common areas of the house, and to explain the points of interest around the area.

Interaction with guests

I retired last year after being a teacher and a school administrator for 28 years. Now, I have remodeled the house with the purpose of being able to offer guests a nice stay. I am well read, well educated, I have traveled a few countries in Europe and in Central and South America, and I love to meet new people and learn about their countries and culture. I am constantly seeking to improve myself, I am active in my church, and my passion is to seek new ways on how to help the under served in this world. I will be available to guest for directions, suggestions, and even introduction to local people if they are interested in being more than tourists.

Other things to note

My house is in the country side of the Central Valley, California; a valley known for its agricultural contributions to the rest of the country and the world. I live about 45 minutes from the Sequoia National Park, about 25 minutes from the Kaweah Lake, and 2 1/2 to 3 hours from Los Angeles.

My wife and I loved our stay at Magdalena's home. She has a beautiful courtyard area with a pool, beautiful gardens, hammocks, and a pond. Our apartment was clean and had everything we needed (e.g., our own kitchen, living room, etc). Magdalena was a great host and made us feel very comfortable during our stay. She even left fresh watermelon slices for us in our fridge! Overall, we had a great experience and highly recommend staying at Magdalena's place!

We came to the area for a bit of RandR and a mini getaway. The house was easy to find, and exactly what's depicted/described. We were greeted by Magdalena and invited to jump in the pool to cool off from the 100+ degree heat. Her dogs, Buddy and Lulu were very friendly, and greeted us and our Frenchie Winston with enthusiasm As indicated in other reviews, the fridge had bottled water and fresh watermelon waiting for us. All in all a great place to relax for a few days and get away from the city. Thanks, Magdalena!

A beautiful space to relax and enjoy after a day of hiking in Sequoia National Park. I spent hours floating in the pool reading my book while my furbabies played with the resident furbabies. Magdalena was very friendly and available when needed. Otherwise she gave me privacy. I hope y'all enjoy her home as much as I did.

Nice property with very pretty grounds with a pool. Our apartment was private and comfortable. Overall, it was a great place that allowed our Labrador. Two cute and friendly dogs onsite.
