Welcome to Beach Cleaves, our cozy, calm home. You will have a private room and will use a bathroom down the hall. The bed is a regular size (smaller than a queen/king).
Your room has a ceiling fan, plenty of closet space, a desk and chair. A chaise lounge doubles as a bed for small children. There is a full-length mirror and a speaker for your music player/phone.
A wonderful outdoor hot tub will soothe your muscles and soul. The foliage-filled private backyard provides a nice retreat for relaxing or sunning.
The week of August 24, we will be having new tile installed in the kitchen and front porch; kitchen access may be limited and there will be some construction sounds during working hours,
For stays of a week or longer, we will offer a discount of about 10%. For groups of 3-4, we can make an additional bedroom available. If interested, please let us know in your booking inquiry and we will extend a special offer. The price will be about $70 more than the price of the room with 2 people (before Airbnb fees).
The hall bathroom may be all yours. though often it is shared with other interesting Airbnb guests. When shared, we will help coordinate shower times in the morning.
Shared space includes a living room and family room/kitchen that are available for your use, including a fireplace. We offer free use of the washer/dryer and full use of the kitchen. We will make room in the fridge and cabinets for your food. Naturally (being in Silicon Valley), wifi is available, and you can use our laser printer. We have forced air heat so you will remain warm in the winter. In hot weather the central air conditioning will cool you.
Your bedroom is not perfect: The privacy hedge outside your room’s windows blew down and as new plants fill in, the room overlooks a neighbor’s driveway and house when the shades are up. We have no television for broadcast or cable programs; instead we stream to our computers.
Guests are welcome to use the kitchen, family room, living room, and laundry. In the backyard, enjoy the hot tub, outdoor shower, and back deck.
Interaction with Guests
We will welcome you as our guest and help you with your needs and questions. We are friendly and sociable and will converse if you like. If you prefer solitude, we will not be Chatty Cathy. Your small children stay for free.

Please conserve energy by turning lights off when not in room, and turning off the porch light when you come in at night.

Hosting one or two additional visitors in the day time is generally OK if they don't sleepover, but we reserve the right to approve individual situations on a case-by-case basis
They were so nice with us. Definitely i recomend this place. It has a great location close to big stores and nightlife. But the best were this great couple. They are doing a great job with airbnb.
Linda and Marc are great hosts! They were so accommodating despite my late notice and the room was everything anyone needs to relax and I felt at home. Will definitely come back on my next trip!
This was my second stay with Marc and Linda. I appreciate their prompt communication and the neighborhood is lovely, easy to find and walking distance to several restaurants. A nice value.
We enjoyed staying with and talking with Linda and Marc. The room and bed was comfortable, and cooking breakfast in the morning was easy. The premier feature is the hot tub.
Linda and Marc were fantastic, if invisible, hosts. Everything was well prepared for me upon my arrival. My room and the bathroom I was assigned to were both quite clean and neat. I had a tad of trouble getting in, but thats probably because I arrived late (at about 10:15pm). Aside from a few closed bedroom doors I had no idea there was anyone else in the entire house. I ran the laundry machines... No one emerged from any shut rooms. I lay in bed reading and didn't hear anyone until about midnight, when I guess it was Marc who came in. At that point, I fell asleep. I guess my only quip would really be about the rest of the house (the shared areas), which could be kept a little neater. I think they're about to start some remodeling though. So maybe that's the reason?

About the Host, Linda And Marc
We are a married couple named Linda and Marc. Marc works and isn't around Monday - Friday during the day; just now Linda is working from home. We like gardening, the beach, and swimming in the summer. We currently are watching a silly show called "Rules of Engagement". We've had a few lovely vacations in Hawaii and look forward to our next trip there.
We will enjoy chatting if you like, or we will leave you to yourself. We are friendly and flexible.
