We've hosted U.S. and international visitors - for a weekend or a few months - for the last 3 years. We are an international couple, business owners, and world travelers - 45 countries and counting.
Beyond the warm welcome you will receive, you are invited to schedule dinner with us, share a bottle of wine on the porch, or keep to yourselves entirely - we are create-your-own adventure hosts.
Feel free to ask us about the best spots for dining, outdoor recreation and activities in the North State - we love the area and have many favorites.
No pets and no smoking - we have new carpets and fresh linens. Many people ask, and we want to ensure our home is safe for those with allergies.
We enjoyed our stay at the apartment attached to Paul and Jenny's home. They were very generous to accomodate a special request that we had for our visit. The updated kitchen was well stocked with dishes, utensils and cooking essentials. The bedrooms were roomy and comforable. The crisp clear pool and beautiful green belt views, were very relaxing.
We had a great time staying at Paul's house!
The house is spacious, fully equip and tastefully furnished, and the pool and jacuzzi makes the entire experience a real treat.
We were with my 1.5 yo toddler and with my mom, and we had enough space and all kid's safety needed stuff.
Paul is a great host! he provided us with great instructions to the very little detail and this made everything super easy!
Our family of four enjoyed our stay at this apartment. We stayed here when the weather was really hot and found the AC in the apartment to be perfectly set, not too cold which is often the case. It is conveniently located for visiting the lakes and other nearby activities. Paul wasn't home during our stay, but still very responsive. We had a problem with the electrical outlets and he asked his housesitter to assist right away. Also, he thoughtfully offered use of a pack and play and changing table when they learned we were travelling with small children.
Our stay was a very positive experience. Our host, Paul, was very attentive and responded & provided immediately if we had a question or request. Quite and private neighborhood. Unit was nice and clean upon our arrival.
Paul and Jenny are very good hosts. They are very warm and concern about what we need and provided it immediately. Jenny even walked us to river side. It was a very pleasant walk. The house gave us privacy which is very important to us. It located at a quiet and safe area. Very nice, will consider to come back again!!
We are a family of 5 and had a comfortable stay with Paul and family in their basement in Redding. The apartment is clean and spacious and as described in the posting. Beds are comfortable and numerous. We were able to use the hot tube which was a real bonus. Location is good with easy access to downtown and is short drive to restaurants and Starbucks etc. Paul and his family are are friendly, warn and unobtrusive. They were also accomodating of us having young children. Recommended.
This was the perfect place e to stay while visiting Redding for a. conference. Two private bedrooms and a small kitchen just right for preparing simple meals. Everything we needed. Thank you for being such a gracious host!

About the Host, Paul
I am South African, and love to create / build and remodel homes. My wife, Jenny Rae, is originally from Lancaster, PA and is also a world traveler. We have lived in Redding, CA for the past 6 years and love the area - there are so many outdoors adventures to be had in the area or a short drive away. We also travel extensively with our 2-year-old, Zane, to our second home near family in Pennsylvania and around the world (50 countries and counting).
