Please take good care of our much loved home. This is our private residence, and a very special place.
Be respectful of our neighbors and Bungalow guests. Quiet hours in the gardens are from 9pm to 10 am. Noise really carries here and you will probably be sharing the back gardens with our bungalow guests so please move conversation into the house during these hours.
Park in the driveway only (fits three cars). And please drive slowly in the cul-de-sac we have lots of families here.
Be very respectful of our gardens. They will blow your mind, promise...
Our home is very relaxed, healing and beautiful. Hope you enjoy the peace and joy that fills this place!
Thank you, Sarah and Evan
Hi Fellow Airbnbers,
Evan and I moved from San Francisco to Pacific Grove thirteen years ago. Evan is an entrepreneur and I am a songwriter. When Josh and Iyla (our kids) moved out, we started Airbnb. We've been hosts for four years! We have used Airbnb throughout Europe and are happy to now be offering our own home and bungalow to wonderful people like you. Our interests are traveling, reading, hiking (Evin has hiked almost all of Big Sur) good food, interesting conversation, rock balancing, yoga, writing and music. We try to get to the beach daily where we walk our three legged blind dog Zeus. He is the coolest member of our family.
