We bought this 1953 Spartanette in the Spring of 2010 and spent 18 months restoring it to modern standards. We completely removed all the original paneling, flooring, and fixtures. We maintained the original floor plan, but replaced the floors, walls, electrical, plumbing, and insulation with modern equivalents. All the windows and doors were fixed or replaced. The bath was upgraded to include a large sink, full shower, and a modern yacht style toilet. The original half bath tub was repaired and replaced. Built in cabinets were designed and installed for ample storage. Our house and the Spartanette are now powered entirely by solar panels.

Rental includes street parking, wireless internet access, CD/Aux stereo, and cable TV. Pick up and drop off from airport can be arranged. Catering may also be available.

We hope to hear from you.

We have two sweet and aloof Ibizan hounds on the property as well as a small flock of heritage breed chickens in a closed aviary.

We ask that you smoke outside in the covered seating area and restrict candles or other flames to the outside areas or the fire pit.

If you have any special requests we will do our best to accommodate you. Please don't hesitate to contact us prior to booking with any questions.
