This room has comfy Queen sized bed, fun and colorful plush carpets, cushy bean bags, closet space, A/C, and of course a hint of magic. This is really best as a room for one or two people. However, if you are on a budget and need a place to stay for a third, there is space for a foam floor mattress at the foot of the bed. It is a comfy to sleep on, but the room will be a tight fit with three. Our two guest rooms do share the guest bathroom and there is a half bath downstairs to supplement.
The house is located on a "circle" that is more of a rectangle with plenty of off street parking and a lawn with lovely large trees in the center of the parking. It is a fairly quiet neighborhood. We have a bearded dragon who lives in a habitat near the pool table and an indoor/outdoor cat who is shy and will mostly avoid you. We are also taming two adorable feral kittens, but they don't have free roam of the house yet. In the backyard we have two loving pups who are diamonds in the rough. They can hang out with you or they can be moved to the side yard if you would prefer to enjoy the hot tub or backyard without their overly exuberant presence, just let me know. I also have a container garden in the front yard and there will always be fresh herbs available, sometimes other things as well. This house is our home and is definitely lived in. We keep it clean, but it is not a sparse hotel or vacation home look. Your room and bathroom are primarily used for Airbnb, they of course will be clean and fresh for your use.
My check-in times are flexible and sometimes my check-out times as well. Please let me know if you need something outside of the stated timeframe and I will do my best to work with you. For lengthy stays, kids, or pets, please message me before booking. You will have access to a pool table, DVD player, Netflix and video games (including the fun of an Xbox W/Kinect), board games, personal gym equipment, a large hot tub, and a kitchen well stocked with cooking equipment and spices (you will need your own main ingredients). There is a dining table in the house and places to eat and relax outside both in the front and back yard. We have a patio heater as well as an enclosed fire pit and a BBQ. If you want to play golf at one of the area courses without having to travel with clubs we have a male and a female set available (please give me a heads up if you would like to use them). There is the possibility of arranging for an in house massage for you, I have several therapists who I hire for myself that are wonderful.
Interaction with guests
My boyfriend and I love to cook, so if it works out for scheduling there may be the option for you to join us for a meal or more, though food is not officially part of the listing. Most work week evenings I like to relax and play with the pups after work. We both work different hours and keep pretty busy, though do to our different hours there will often be one of us close at hand if you need something. I have various picnic supplies available to lend to you if you give me a heads up (preferably before your stay, but let me know if you have a last minute inspiration). These can include dishes, insulated bag/backpack, wine opener, and a sheet, blanket, or chairs to sit on.
Other things to note
The room is meant for 1-2, but can accommodate one more on a foam mattress on the floor. Our place could be made available for a large group if both of our Airbnb rooms are rented by the same party. We could add additional sleeping for 4-6+ more people in addition to the 6-7 the two rooms can handle. Pricing would have to be negotiated based on the size of the group and what is needed. Revised pictures of the room are coming, though it is already a comfy place to stay, we are continuing to put the finishing touches on the themed decor.
- On week nights I would prefer if the kitchen and other downstairs areas were quiet by around 10:30pm so that I can sleep before work.
- No indoor tobacco smoking, ash trays are available outside.
- Please no metal utensils in the non-stick pans.
- Pets, children, and events are on a per situation basis and dependent on what I have going on. Tell me what you have in mind.
I am fairly laid back. When on vacation I like to relax, enjoy the scenery and when I am not relaxing check out the sites and activities in the area. I am new as an Airbnb host, but my friends have said for years that I am an excellent host. If you stay with me, I look forward to helping make your wine country vacation magical.
