Description

The space

My neighborhood is "Next to Nature" at the base of beautiful golden foothills in summer and rich green hills the rest of the year-round. There is lots of nature and beautiful sunrises and sunsets above the foothills while seeking solitude or while enjoying holding hands with your special someone! Also, great for runners, bicyclists, roller bladers, and skateboarders while enjoying your visit. Plenty of well-lit parking 24/7. My home has wall-to-wall carpeting, double-pane windows and double closets. Easy access to newly renovated hall bathroom. New shower/bath/floor with Italian tile and attractive clean shower.

Appliances: utensils with pots, pans. glassware, microwave oven, stove, "tabletop" oven only, a separate full-size fridge, and dishwasher. My home also has an attractive family room with fireplace, couch and dining table for six. The living room has a flat screen t.v. to watch DVD's and limited t.v. channels with a sectional sofa and beautiful antique furniture. There is also use of an excellent washer and dryer. A beautiful relaxing patio shaded by large swaying trees above casting plenty of welcome shade for those hot summer days. The patio is adorned with 1 year old BBQ grill, a 6' table with 6 comfy cushioned patio chairs with a large umbrella for additional shade. Last but not least it offers a peaceful ambience with beautiful seasonal flowering shrubs and ground cover. Also if you are currently an active member with any YMCA facility worldwide there is a YMCA nearby with great classes such as ballroom dancing, zumba, palates, and more. Plenty of nearby public transit available. Shopping center and mall with large movie theater just a few blocks away. Lake Cunningham Park is also nearby offering playground equipment throughout, picnic areas and plenty of BBQs with ample parking at minimal cost. Alum Rock Park offers breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay area. A beautiful drive over the Santa Cruz Mountains will put you in view of the Pacific Ocean with lots of beaches to choose from. Local vineyards offer lots of opportunities for hiking and wine tasting whether driving or cycling.

Bedding, bath towels and beach towels are provided.

Pamela is great host and the room was very comfortable. I appreciated that she leaves notes as to where things go and what to do so your not second guessing yourself. The neighborhood is really nice and gives you that home away from home feel. Enjoy your stay there.

Response from Pamela:
Thank you Megan for your compliments. It was really fun hosting you! I loved all our conversations over the dinner table and especially how much you love your family :) Thank you so much keeping common areas neat and clean and being respectful of me and my home. I'm looking forward to your next visit very soon. Hopefully with the warmer weather arriving we will have time to take a walk in the foothills here.

Pamela is a great person, an extraordinary lady, a distinguished mom. I was her her guest, and I am very grateful of her for the way she treated me. It was a great experience for me. I enjoyed conversations with her. She is super kind, flexible, and her house is super clean, bright, and cozy. Happily I extended my stay. I hope she feels similarly about me. I wish her pure bliss and all the best from bottom of my heart.

Pamela, House is clean including the bathroom. It was private and confortable. The communication was excellent, my experience there was fantastic. It was a pleasure to communicate with Pamela. She provided lot of snacks and drinks. Pamela is a very caring to her guests, she will make sure the house is quiet for you to be able to have a good rest. I really enjoyed my stay at Pamela's she is a great host. I had a nice time talking with Pam and sleeping in a nice bed, that we decided to extend my stay. I recommend to any anyone traveling in the area to stay at Pamela's. Just make shore you know how to use the App of Airbnb. I did not and lost a lot of money. Pam if I make my issues with Airbnb I may use them again and will see you soon in the near future. Thank you for have me stay at your home away from home.

Pamela's home is located in a very quiet residential area and close to the beautiful hill where you may enjoy jogging. As a host, she was responsive and provided all information needed very promptly. Also, she introduced another guest who actually will start working in the same company as I will and brewed nice coffee to us. I was happy to make a new friend there and also enjoyed chatting with him and Pamela. Overall I had satisfied staying at hers and recommend this place to other Airbnbers.

Pamela User ProfilePamela is a superhost.

I enjoy learning about other cultures, geographies of other countries, cuisines etc. I hold a BA in Graphic Design. I enjoy travel of just about any kind and have visited many countries as well as states here at home. I also like an array of outdoor venues, small hikes, festivals and concerts. Though I am not fluent in Spanish I would like to learn it where I can be fluent someday. I have adult children that I am very proud of and they come home for periodic visits. I am hard working and very respectful by nature. Five things I cannot live without are my family, humor, the arts, dancing, and traveling. As a guest in someone else's house I am very trustworthy, clean, courteous, generous and funny. I believe in helping others in need, and living life well.
