We have a whole-house water filtration system so the water that you drink out of any faucet in the house is pure. Also great for skin and hair when you take a shower.
The house is not child-proofed so if you have a little one it is advised you watch them closely and keep them in your bedroom for their safety.
We have two miniature schnauzers who are yappy but friendly. They love to meet new people and get excited when they hear you come home but will quiet down after a few minutes. Schnauzers are very close to being hypoallergenic because they don't shed much and we do not allow our dogs in that guest room just in case someone is allergic. If you are not a dog person just let us know.

Accommodations very new, clean and comfortable. Convenient location.
Staying with Shannon and Doug, I had all the comforts of home with the private entrance, bath and small fridge for some snacks and lunch food. The accommodations had great closet space and dresser as well as lots of towels and necessary amenities. I was very comfortable and was able to come and go as I liked without disturbing anyone which I liked as I left the house early each day. Bed was cozy with nice linens and big fluffy pillows. The hosts were easily accessible for directions or recommendations. I was able to do laundry which was a big plus that I did not even realize. I miss the little dogs that live in the house. They always made me smile when I opened my door to the house to see them there looking for me.
What a great spot for an extended holiday. Shannon and Greg were wonderful hosts. My bike suffered a tire blow out and Greg kindly lent
me one of their bikes. Seven days of sun and surf invigorated my wife
Found a great church 5 minutes from the house - North Coast Church, Carlsbad campus. Friendly folks, great music and a message that hit at
the hearts of those present.
Only thing that seemed to be missing was a box of Kleenex as we knew
we would cry having to go back to 100+ temps in the desert. But when
we alerted Shannon to this oversight she kindly left a box at our bedroom
We will return.
Shannon and Doug were great hosts! The room was clean, comfortable with great exterior access. The ability to use the neighborhood pool added even more. Highly recommended!
Shannon and Doug were so welcoming in their charming house with peace and silence!
About the Host, Shannon
We love to travel the world, meet new people, have good conversation, eat good food, drink good cocktails/wine/beer. We are both from the midwest originally and have two mini-schnauzers named Fritz and Trude who are talkative but friendly. Shannon is a substitute teacher and Doug is an engineer who is an accomplished home-brewer as well. Life is short so Carpe Diem!
