About this listing
Your private, sunny suite includes 2 bedrooms, a full bath, family room and breakfast nook. The space is set away from the rest of the house so it is quiet, but if you need us for anything, we are generally close by or reachable by phone.
Your private entrance will lead you into the family room, complete with comfortable couch, TV and DVD player, and 2 pianos that you are welcome to play. There is a breakfast nook that will be supplied with a coffee maker, coffee, hot water pot and assorted teas, sugar and honey. There is a small refrigerator where you will find orange juice and whatever other breakfast choices we have. Before you arrive I will check with you about what you would like for breakfast; freshly baked items or fruit salad with yogurt and/or my homemade granola. Continuing up the stairs you will find the newly remodeled bathroom with a lovely shower. The 2 bedrooms each have a queen-sized bed with memory foam topper on the mattress. Both bedrooms have ample closet space, and two large windows with second-floor views of the orchard and beyond. There is a desk in one of the rooms.
The yard, over an acre large, is part of what makes us so happy to call this place home. We have dozens of apple trees, abundant berries of several types, a kiwi arbor, and gardens with various flowers and vegetables. It is always available for your enjoyment, and we welcome you to pick whatever's in season!
Our kitchen space is available to you. We are a vegetarian household so we ask that you do not cook meat in our kitchen. There is also a blender, a toaster and a microwave and conventional stovetop and oven.
Interaction with Guests
We're friendly and enjoy meeting visitors and helping them get settled and oriented. However, we also respect our guests' privacy and have busy schedules of our own.
We live on a quiet road with no through traffic, in a rural setting atop rolling hills. The houses are set far apart, so we have privacy and are hardly aware of neighbors. Sometimes deer and wild turkeys pass through our yard--and hummingbirds visit us daily!
Despite the rural feel, we are a mere 1.3 miles from downtown--a pleasant 25 minute walk. Bus travel in the region is limited. Biking is very popular in our area.
Other Things to Note
We are a beautiful 8 minute walk from Luther Burbank's summer cottage and horticultural farm, and 1 mile away from a county park with over 160 acres of natural terrain, traversed by asphalt and dirt paths for walkers, runners and cyclists.
Several wineries and tasting rooms are within a 10 mile radius.
Also, my husband, John, is a fabulous musician and he will be happy to play music with children or adults, depending on the day of the week, if you are interested. We have had many wonderful musical experiences with our Airbnb visitors.
We expect our guests to be kind, considerate, respectful of our home.
