Great place! You cannot go wrong if there is a sauna in an Airbnb. Wonderful host and walkable distance to Hawthorne where you can get full and have some drinks. Definitely choose this place.

Laren and Annette were great hosts. The home is really beautiful and thoughtfully furnished. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood and walkable to restaurants, shops, etc.

Beautiful home in a great neighborhood. Annette was friendly, helpful with local hiking suggestions and accommodating with check-in/out time. Easy keyless entry and house rules are reasonable. Met other guests whom were friendly. Highly recommend!

Second time here and it feels like home! The sauna is life changing. It’s beautiful and they are very conscientious of your privacy.
