Interaction with guests
We love company and sharing a bottle of wine over dinner. Our beautiful little town is one of the best kept secrets in the Los Angeles area, along with Pasadena. We're happy to have you as our guests.
Other things to note
Kitchenette includes small fridge (2nd fridge available for long-term stays) microwave, toaster oven, egg cooker, coffee and tea maker and hot plate. No stove. A small gas grill with griddle outside the cottage can be used for grilling/cooking.
This is a relatively quiet neighborhood. We should probably keep it that way. No more than two people can stay in the cottage. No unpaid guests. Absolutely no smoking.
I love sharing a good bottle of wine with a new acquaintance, swapping stories over an improvised meal. A bit of gardening before work, which is sometimes more gardening, then some writing or a creative project in the works, or not. Whatever comes my way, I'm pretty okay with. I like making others comfortable and at home in my small piece of the world. Just ask my wife Jan. Or don't, she may have other ideas.
