JAZZ FESTIVAL: 9/9 - 9/10/2017 (5 miles)
The moment you enter my house you will feel welcome with its warm and cozy environment. From the inviting entrance to the different areas offered to enjoy and relax. My cats will greet you with meows and leg rubs in hopes that you will be their new best friend. Don't be surprised if they follow you or want to sleep on your bed/chair. I have amenities many others do not; please read "MORE" under description for detailed info.
BEDROOM: relaxation and a good nights sleep is important so I provide allergy covers on the comfy queen bed and fluffy pillows; I also wash or dry clean linens after EVERY visit. PLUS++ a massaging chair and foot rest. The room also comes with a welcome tray of coffee, tea and snacks. PLUS a sound machine, fan, and candles to add to the "spa" environment that I hope to create.
BATHROOM (shared): located to the right, directly after front entrance, has a massage shower head and guest basket for essentials you might have forgotten or just was to use: body wash, body spray, lotion, q-tips, etc. Fresh towels: body, hand and wash clothes provided; I also have items for purchase: earplugs, eye masks, tooth brush....
KITCHEN: 2nd fridge has free infused water & homemade teas for your enjoyment. There is also extra space if you need to refrigerate food. Feel free to access and use all amenities: stove, toaster oven, microwave, guest cabinet with plates, bowls, cups, etc. but PLEASE be considerate and thoroughly wash and put away any items used.
BORROW: beach chairs, cooler, yoga equipment, (coming soon) tandem/ beach cruisers, etc; but these items MUST be checked out and bike requires a deposit.
LAUNDRY/IRON: If you are here on business or just like your clothes wrinkle free, let me know and I can supply ironing board/iron in your room before arrival. I ask that you stay a minimum 3 days before ask to use washer/dryer (with permission/instruction)
There is a sunny courtyard patio off of kitchen and also a fire-pit in the backyard.
Fire-pit is accessible ($5 wood bundles can be purchased) with advance permission.
I work from my studio @ home so Im frequently here but when I am not, you can reach me via phone. I also have a roommate but we both have busy schedules so you may or may not see us. Id like to be home when guests arrive to give you the house key and show you around a little; but other arrangements can be made if I am not available. I am friendly and local so if you want to know of great places to eat or visit just ask :-) I am more than willing to socialize most days, but I will not intrude as I want to respect your privacy.
- Location of key will be emailed to you, so make sure you CHECK messages before arrival otherwise if I am not here, you will not be able to get in house.
-I have 2 lovable cats so I hope you are NOT allergic. GEMja (black cat) and Chewbacca/Jumangi (Bengal) are allowed outside, so dont worry about keeping them indoors or chasing them down. They are friendly and cuddly so feel free to visit with them all you want.
-Locks for house always "appear" unlocked from inside BUT this is a misconception; please check outside door knob for accuracy....... otherwise I am afraid you might get locked out!
-Feel free to leave without checking out but please LEAVE KEYS inside the bedroom before you go. There will be a $20 charge for lost key.
-Wi-Fi is available but sometimes harder to get in the back bedrooms because the walls of the house were built so long ago they make it hard for frequencies to pass through from my office.
-Security deposits are only charged if the host needs to make a claim based on damages, unpaid balances, etc.
*Please read my entire listing before messaging, as I have comprehensive coverage for most questions!
- Location of key will be emailed to you, so make sure you READ messages before arrival because if I am not here you will not be able to get in house.
-The entrance doors swell up from the weather, so they need a good hard SLAM to close all the way. Dont worry........you wont wake us, and besides, better safe than sorry!
-I have 2 lovable cats that are allowed outside: GEMja (black panther) & Jumanji (Bengal tiger) so no need to chase them down.
-You are welcome to use (certain) dishes, pans, etc but please wash with HOT soapy water, rinse well and leave to air dry on mat.
-LEAVE KEYS inside bedroom when you check out; there will be a $20 charge for lost key.
Today is a gift.....that is why it is called the "present". Living TODAY like there is no tomorrow. I have a warm cozy home and I love to entertain. My passion is Mother Nature: I am an upcycle artist, love the outdoors and try to be as all natural as I can; all this in hopes to make a difference in the world (even if small) I welcome the opportunity to learn something new and exciting :-)
