Sarah is a very relaxed and relaxing charming host, who is extremely friendly, easy to talk to, easy to get along with. I spent a peaceful week in her studio, enjoying the fireplace almost every evening. I left the place filled with the sense of peace and serenity, already missing her hospitality. I would love to stay again.
Sarah was a great host. She was always quick to respond to my messages while booking and before arriving. She cleaned the space to be spotless for my arrival and was extremely welcoming and accommodating. It was a great area to have my own space with availability to also share in the kitchen and pool area during my stay. The location was also very quiet and safe as well as convenient to get to the freeway.

Both really good People! The area is quiet and parking is easy. I would recommend it and hope to keep in contact with Sarah :-) best regards Henrik and Sara.

I am an empty nester and and have lived in this area since college and raised my family here. My lifestyle is healthy and I enjoy all the local outdoor activities. My interests are design, architecture, art, gardening, fine dining and travel. I enjoy quiet, low key and peaceful individuals who are calming to be around. I value tolerance, humility and acceptance and try to extend the same grace to others. I travel frequently for business and enjoy meeting interesting people. I love tropical environments and exotic foods.
