Other things to note
NON-SMOKERS & WOMEN ONLY PLEASE! :)
I have a cat named Annabelle who enjoys being admired by AirBnB guests. Her life goal is to escape out the front door so you'll have to watch your feet when you come/go. Incidentally: she is not allowed in the guest bedroom and I vacuum frequently with a HEPA filter vacuum.
If you enjoy gardens or flowers, I'd be happy to give you a tour of my 3500 sq. ft. drought-tolerant flower and organic vegetable garden :) If you like roses, you can enjoy the 56 rose bushes on the property (there will be flower bouquets in your room, too!) If you come in the summer you can enjoy some fresh garden produce!

I was born and raised in Palo Alto, CA but have called many places home over the years, including Washington state, London, Indianapolis, Chicago, Honduras, the Dominican Republic, and Washington D.C. I'm so happy to be home again in the Bay Area. I think this is one of the greatest places in the world!
I love gardening and plants, and enjoy spending time in my yard working on garden science projects. I recently removed 3500 square feet of lawn and planted drought tolerant flowers and a huge organic vegetable garden. I also love walking/riding my bike by the Baylands, baking delicious things, and reading.
I decided to list a space in my home on AirBnB because I have met so many wonderful people during my travels. The Bay Area is a marvelous part of the world and I love hosting people who come to visit it!
