The space
**COVID STATEMENT: We are committed to providing a safe place for you to stay. As a result, we are participating in Airbnb's enhanced cleaning protocol, as well as allowing a full day between stays in an effort to mitigate any risk of cross-contamination between guests**

Newly remodeled, our one-bedroom loft offers clean modern living, with a touch of Danish charm. The bedroom features a queen tempurpedic bed with adjustable firmness for two, 300 thread count sheets and down bedding, all nestled in a cozy nook. Linens and towels are freshly laundered with detergent that is hypoallergenic and contains no dyes, phosphates, ultraviolet brighteners or perfumes. In the bathroom, a unique vintage glass block window allows the light to come in while preserving your privacy. It's the perfect spot to have a soak after a day of site-seeing. The loft also has a full kitchen with stove, oven, and fridge, and is equipped with everything you need to cook dinner or prepare your morning cup of coffee. The living area provides plenty of space for you to spread out and play games, watch a movie or comfortably read a book. The Danish modern furniture is all convertible, allowing for two additional guests to each have a twin bed to themselves. If you can't bear to be inside, spend some time on the private balcony, which overlooks our courtyard garden. Featuring drought tolerant and primarily native plants, the garden changes season-by-season, and always lends a little color to your scenery. It's the perfect place to dine outside or relax with a glass of wine.

Access to the loft is easy with your own private parking space and gated entrance just down the stairs. Each building is separate, so you will not have anyone staying below you. Our loft accommodates 2-4 people -- a perfect spot for a couple or a small family. Our rentals are also pet friendly, so your dog (Or cat? Rabbit? Turtle?) is welcome.

Bedding and towels will be provided, along with toiletries such as soaps, shampoo/conditioner and lotion. We offer EO Products, which are free from synthetic fragrances, cruelty-free, gluten-free, and GMO-free.

If this unit is booked for your required dates, we have another rental on the same property that may be available. Search "Couples Cottage | Steps to Downtown" on airbnb for more details.

**Please note that Solvang requires a 12% occupancy tax be collected on the rental rate. Airbnb does not provide a method for including the tax with the initial price, so it will be added to your booking AFTER you have requested or made the reservation with instant booking (this means we will contact you with a price alteration, and you will then have to approve a price increase in the amount of the required tax and the reservation will be updated). The tax is based on the nightly rental rate, and not on the cleaning fee. A Transient Occupancy Tax Certificate from the city is on display in the unit.**

Where you’ll be

Solvang, California, United States

You cannot be any closer to the heart of Solvang than The Great Dane Guest House. We are situated less than one block from the main street of town, Coppenhagen drive. Whether you've come for shopping, wine tasting, dining, adventuring, etc. - you will find everything is within a very short walk. We will provide anything you need to know about local restaurants, wineries, hikes, biking, shops, etc. The famous Solvang Horse Trolley comes by about every half hour Monday-Friday, which is worth a ride if you'd like to know a little about the history of our little Danish town. Right next-door is the award winning First and Oak Restaurant at The Mirabelle. We would be happy to make a reservation for you if you'd like. Also, if you enjoy gambling or shows, you can walk one block to Hotel Corque and catch a free shuttle to the Chumash Casino.

We are a couple of gals who left city life to live in the quaint Danish community of Solvang on California's central coast. Amy is a Veterinarian who grew up in the area, but left for school at UC Davis many years ago. Joy owns a spice shop in town and now enjoys spending time immersed in the tourist culture of our funny little town. While Joy plays guitar and mandolin, Amy is working on retirement and a second career as a portrait artist. Like most folks, we love music, art, travel and food. We have a small camper that we like to take to music festivals, camping and even just overnight for a show. We love to explore the outdoors and often find ourselves trekking through brush on our way to making a new path. Our roost is ruled by a well-behaved Chihuahua named Paco, who has outlived great danes, a chesapeake bay retreiver, an Australian cattle dog, two cats and various other foster siblings throughout his life. He now prefers being an only dog, but loves when others visit. If you're staying with us, we hope you'll love the space we've created as much as we do. If we're staying with you, we will care for your home as if it were our own!

During your stay

We live on the property (there are three homes) in the front house. We are available for anything you might need, but are also happy to leave you completely on your own. We work around your comfort level. A private entrance means you can come and go with minimal interaction with us or other guests. There is another rental, so you may see other guests as well. But you have your own private space, both indoor and outdoor.
