I enjoy a quiet residential neighborhood. The original fee is 110.00.a night. With the, new, city bed tax, it comes to 125.00 per night. Thanks.Rick
Please, no smoking indoors. Outdoors- if I can't tell, you are OK! I will be happy to show you how to operate the gas fire pit, waterfall over the fish pond, lights in the tiki huts and how to access the eggs. I do live here too, but respect your privacy and will be unobtrusive during your visit.
Please try to leave the studio in the condition you found it, I.e. Please wash your own dishes. I have provided everything you need to do so.
I look forward to meeting you.
Rick made us feel very welcome yet totally alone (he came to help us turn on the fire pit, chatted a bit etc. but gave us full privacy). The grounds were spectacular! We felt like we had a private tropic getaway. It was nice for our dog too since it was quiet with a nice outdoor dining area. We'd definitely stay here again!
Rick was an excellent host and was sure to immediately make us feel right at home. The space was very clean and comfortable with all the amenities I could ask for. There was a beautiful landscape, outdoor games, a hot tub and a BBQ. Inside there was everything I needed for cooking. He was friendly and helpful but also gave us our privacy. It was a perfect weekend, I highly recommend staying there.
Rick's place was awesome! The suite was very well finished and equipped with everything we needed. The yard was amazing! He has done some really neat things with it. It was very quiet and Rick was helpful with whatever we needed. Also the fresh eggs were definitely a plus! We would come back again for sure.
This place is fantastic. We had a family get-together planned and wanted to have a bit of a private getaway for when we needed a break. It was truly our own little private oasis. The back yard is fantastic, and the room has plenty of room to hang out, have a meal, or relax. Rick was excellent and had everything set up perfectly. Mornings were spent cooking delicious breakfasts with the provided eggs. Evenings were spent in the hot tub stargazing. Great experience overall.
Rick's place is really fantastic. The private hide-away is nicely designed, comfortable, and has more than enough amenities; a handy kitchen, nice bathroom, and comfy bed to name a few. The real draw is his garden jungle that you can have a lot of fun just wandering through. The bonus here is the hot tub. It's a nice touch. On top of all that he's a cool guy. If you're in this area - wine country, etc, book this place!
This place is sooo amazing!! We stayed for three nights with my husband and two toddler daughters and we all had a blast! The studio was just big enough for us to fit in two air mattresses for the girls beside the really comfortable queen-size bed. The girls LOVED exploring around the yard or "forest" as they called it, saying hi to the chickens each morning, having breakfast outdoors. While the kids napped, my husband and I enjoyed the spacious and charming outdoor area - sitting in the shade and enjoying a bottle of wine, lounging in the lounge chairs under the palm trees with a book, hanging out in the hot tub. Rick gave us a ton of recommendations for things to do in the area with little kids. This was the best vacation we could have with two little kids in tow :) We will definitely be back! Thank you, Rick!
About the Host, Rick
I have been working on improving the grounds over the past 20 years that I have lived here. I am a grocery manager, personal trainer and have my own landscaping company. My goal is for you to visit and feel you are in a tropical paradise. Aside from the weather, I think I can come pretty close!
