Interaction with guests

I enjoy providing tips on great locale destinations and restaurants, etc. I like to give the tenants a great deal of space and privacy after the initial check-in.

Other things to note

No dogs allowed because I have a dog who is friendly but it's her castle and may not play well with toys, etc.

This was a great place to stop by on our roadtrip up the coast! Very cozy and secluded. Short drive to SLO and tons of wineries.

A great place to stay if traveling on the 101. The studio was comfortable, private, and came equipped with Apple TV and Netflix. Location was perfect. The place is just a short walk from the ocean where you can see sea otters in the water below the cliffs. There is also an assortment of dining options along Shell Beach Road which is easily accessible.

Easy-going, fun and well-travelled individual who enjoys meeting new people from all walks of life and various interests. Personally into healthy lifestyle, outdoors, music, travel and more. Favorite place is Paris for city life and Annecy, France for a perfect blend...but Shell Beach definitely has its magic and charm.
