Our light-filled garden apartment is spacious at over 1000 sq/ft. The master bedroom has onyx and marble floors and the second smaller, humbler bedroom also has a queen bed. It's 15 min. to downtown w/o traffic. We have a private covered patio overlooking our koi pond, a cozy gas fireplace, fine furniture, a 17' window wall looking into the garden, wifi, and Netflix and Amazon Video. There is a small kitchen. We are pro cellists and teachers so you may hear us, but we start late and end early.

The space
This apartment is a mix of luxury and, well, not. Everyone remarks on how large it is and how much they like the light and space. The main space and furnishing are first rate and the floors are really beautiful. I'm really proud of the main bedroom as well. The kitchen is fine for one person to work in and everything works very well, but it doesn't have a disposal and the cabinets are older. The bathroom is quite spacious with a nice shower. The TV is Apple TV so you'll have access to our Netflix and Amazon Video accounts or your own and YouTube. If you have other accounts like HBO, CBS or the like, you can log into them. The laundry is generally available 9am-9pm, accessed through a different exterior door that connects to the host's living space so please give us a little head start if you'd like to use it.

Guest access
Laundry is available in the owners laundry room which has exterior door access. Just ask if you need to use it. We ask that access is only between about 9 am and 9 pm generally.

Other things to note
We are both professional cellists. Sometimes you will hear cello playing either by us or our students, but sometimes not at all. Please let us know right away if it is too loud or bothersome. We practice, but also teach, usually from about 3-8 pm.

During your stay
I am home much of the time and can help with things more often than not. We have lots of resources to help you and we need all guests to let us know immediately if anything is needed or not up to expectations. That said, I usually prefer hosts who leave me alone when I stay with Airbnb so I try to do the same with my guests. We like our guests to simply walk in and make themselves comfortable. We often come down to greet guests at a reasonable hour or at some point in their stay though.
