While waiting for departure on your travel adventure or sightseeing, for the day, in this special area of Southern California, relax by the pool, unwind by visiting with the horses or chickens, sit on the balcony and enjoy the views, read a book under an old oak tree, or just meander through the garden paths as you soak in the beauty of this wildlife migratory path.

We've had a wonderful time. Laura and Rick are great hosts, and the house is beautiful. It is located on top of a hill and the views are spectacular. There are many animals around, including dogs, cats, chickens, and horses, which was a big bonus for our 1,5 year old son.

Laura was extremely warm and welcoming, there were so many friendly animals that added to the experience, they are very accommodating and the property it's self can not be captured in a photo, you really have to experience in person! At night you can see so many stars and hear a peaceful orchestra of wild life. I regret not staying longer it was amazing. Everything was beautiful-- the inside of the house, the view, the many outside spots to hang out at. I loved it.
