Hi! I'm Cyndy -
When I started hosting in 2014 I rented the entire house; then I moved back in and listed private rooms. After a little remodel in winter 2016, the front third of my 1961 Ranch is now a separate apartment providing an inviting, comfortable, efficient space to call home-base or home-away-from-home.
The place is set-up for guests to be as self-sufficient as they want and I let guests set the tone for interactions. I greet you and give a brief tour so we get to know each other a little and I answer questions to make sure you have the best stay possible. I get a vicarious thrill from sharing my experience and knowledge with guests and sometimes that's the only time we see each other!
My creative energy is home-focused, so I'm grateful to at home and still meet fascinating people from all over the world!* When I'm not nesting,, I read and follow to baseball, eat with friends and family, bike .....
