About this listing

Please read full description/details as I cover many things that may interest you (location, pets/cats-I have LOTS of them!, etc) regarding the home to determine if this would be a good fit for you. If you're curious about anything, please do ask.

The space

Please note: My HOA requires a 30-day minimum rental lease agreement. Please inquire.

Private bedroom with private en-suite bath (towels, iron, hair dryer, toiletries provided) . This room has a queen size memory foam bed, cedar closet, a 40" tv with Dish Network satellite cable (300+ channels), dvd player, and wireless internet. Outside your room is a game room with table for working if needed, small living room and garage parking/entrance for you to use. You will also have use of the common areas of a 4000 sqft home (that sits on an acre), fully equipped kitchen, tech/desk area, game room/library, seating on the front entry of the home with mountain views, and backyard patio seating as well. I have a pool (not heated) that you may enjoy. (I have a spa but do not list it as an amenity as it has constant issues, and as of now, it is not available to use). The home was built in January 2013, so everything is brand new. I'm constantly doing upgrades to it, so you should find your stay very enjoyable.

The guest room has a ceiling fan along with it's own individually controlled central AC/heat unit.

I have two listings available (East) and (West) which easily accommodate two people per room. I also have two portable twin beds that can be used in the guest rooms, if needed. (By renting both rooms and using the portable beds, this would give you space for 6 people). The West room will accommodate up to 4 people and the East room will accommodate up to 3 people.

All bedrooms are on their own wing of the house with their own en-suite bathroom, so this allows for much privacy. The rooms also have keyed locks should you choose to use.

Garage parking outside your bedroom is made available to guests. I also subscribe to the local newspaper, which I receive on Sundays and Wednesdays. Please feel free to read.

Guest access

I honor typical hotel check-in/check-out times: check-in after 3p and check-out by 12p. It's very rare I can accommodate early check-ins due to other reservations and the cleaning time that is necessary, however, if I'm able to, I will try my best to accommodate. Please let me know your planned arrival/departure times so we can plan accordingly.

Interaction with guests

I'm a workaholic and in my free time volunteer or hang out with friends, so you will most likely not see much of me during your stay. Have no fear, as I'm just a call/text/email a way! If time allows, I would love to hang out, but it's not expected. I'm very non-intrusive and just let guests do their own thing. I figure if you have a question or need me, you will let me know. Otherwise, enjoy!

Other things to note

VERY IMPORTANT: Although they are not allowed in the guest rooms, I do have cats in case that's an issue for you. I volunteer at several animal organizations and foster, so I have several in the home (anywhere from 2 to 8 at any given time).

The house is very clean, and I also have professional cleaners several times a month. Thorough cleanings are also done before and after each room reservation as well.

Valarie is a terrific hostess. Her home is amazing, very comfortable, a true paradise. She is extremely friendly and helpful in answering all our questions. She is passionate about caring for cats and her guests! Her home is near hiking in the South Mountains and not far from biking trails and many tourist sites. This is our second visit to her place and we hope to return again next year.

This special place is a mini resort. The host greets you on your arrival, gives you a nice tour of the mini resort. It is in a very nice quiet secluded area and a great place to unwind. Everything was very clean and tidy. Will definitely stay again and will recommend to friends.

A little about me: I'm a workaholic (70-80 hours a week) so don't be surprised if you don't see much of me during your stay. Although, have no fear, I'm just a call/text/email a way! My passion is animals and I'm involved with fostering and animal rescue (primarily with cats), so there are quite a few always in the home (any where from 2 to 8 at any given time). I travel often for work and pleasure, and love meeting new and interesting people along the way. Everyone has a story, and I enjoy interests from many backgrounds. (This is one of the biggest reasons I got involved with airbnb.) I'm laid-back, open-minded, respectful, responsible but also love to occasionally let my hair down and pretend I'm still 25. I love old school hip hop, Miami house/lounge music, jazz, funky 70s music the most. I'm a sucker for comedy, animals, trying hole in the wall places/restaurants, or a good foo foo martini or glass of wine.
