About this listing
Have a happy time away from home! My home offers you a quiet,safe and relaxed lodging, it is the home of a very happy person, three huge pups and a kitty! Please note, there are three BIG live in dogs and a cat living in this property.
Home located in beautiful Agoura Hills, California. 20 minutes from Malibu Beaches. 40 minutes from Santa Bárbara.
There is one bedroom available in the second floor and shares the bathroom with me.
I am a quiet person so I hope I will not be a bother to my guests.
I have no cable TV because I really do never watch it, so for me it is a waste, however you can watch DVD if you wish. there is a big TV downstairs and a dvd player and you are welcome to use it.
House style is on the Spaish look.
Guests will be treated as friends if that is Ok with them. They have access to the rest of the home. They can come in and out as they wish. no time frames. I expect guests not to smoke, drink or do drugs inside the premises. My home is a healthy environment. No smoking, no drinking, no drugs. That is a must.
The neigborhood is very, very quiet and relaxed. No crime, no danger. I usually do not even lock the door. There are lots of Restaurants around. I will provide a list, and also will provide a list of places to visit, with the location, the ticket price (if they charge for tickets). I can tell you those prices ahead of time (Disneyland, Adventureland, Universal Studios, etc) You can send me the price and I will have the tickets here ready for you...if you can or want to plan ahead. You have to let me know in advance if you need all this information.
There is a bus access that unfortunately only runs until 5pm. I can get the itinerary for my guests.
I have three big dogs who I rescued from the shelter. they are good boys, friendly and are indoor dogs and always around, but they will not bother you. There is also a cat. I have to tell you in case yo are allergic to dogs or cats! If you are not a dog or cat person or an animal lover I rather recommend you not to book my room.
This is a very old house and so.it looks! There is a cleaning lady in charge, therefore everything will be impeccable in your room , your bedding and the bath you will use. Clean linen is provided as well as all the bed blankets etc, will be carefully washed for each guest and impeccable towels are provided. However, the rest of the house may show the signs of three big dogs walking in.and out every second. And occasionally some details such as a couple of spider webs in.the corners will escape from.my sight, because I do not see well. There is a weekly ceaning lady, but spiders can knit a web overnight and I will not see it!
The house is very old, the kitchen is ran down and it shows. Scrubbing cabinets is a daily job for me, but it won't ever lookvperfect, needs painting!
Therefore, if you are a neat freak person or excessive attention to details, this will not be a perfect house for you. Besides, I hate to live in.a housevthatvlooks like nobody lives in it! I want you to.know this.
I am a friendly person, always happy and smiling and never in a bad mood. If you want to spend time in a very relaxed and friendly environments, my house is the place you want to be!
Guests can access everywhere...but please take into account that it is my house ... I live and work here, therefore you will see traces o my activities everywhere.. I am not a neat freak and i have no skills to put things in order, simply not. Your room and bath will all ways be impeccable and neat but please do not expect the house. It is my space and i hate spaces that look and feel like only ghosts live there. I need to see traces of life around so that is what you must be prepared to see. I am not a neat freek...and simply can't stand neat creek spaces!
Please if you see any detail of dirt, bugs etc in your room or bath, bring it to my attention on the spot. I will take care of it immediately. I do not have good sight, it may be some tiny detail escapes from my poor sight.
Interaction with guests
Since I usually work from home I am available most of the day if you need any help in finding a place, directions , etc.. and I can also give you a lift to your work o car rental, etc...that will not be a problem.
Other things to note
Other than the dogs...I probably should mention the fact that California is in a severe drought alert and therefore the water company has been requesting to be very careful in the daily use of water. Right now we are only allowed to water the gardens twice a week , and I read the next step is to restrict the daily use of water to only 50 gallons per person, so I kindly ask you to be very moderate in the showering time...and try to save water as much as possible..
No smoking, no drinking, no drugs. Please do not keep food in.the room. This us almost a wild area and there is a lake one block below. All kind of critters live in.th ed area, in special field rats and field rats can be attracted by food remains inside the bedrooms. Even when there is a cat in the house, rats will sneak in.if there is food in display. Please let's not allow this to happen. There is a pantry and a fridge that I will be happy to share with you. There is also a dining area you can.use!
You may note a few stains in the bedroom carpets coming from dining in.the bedroom. I try to much as I can , however you have to realize a professional carpet cleaning charges 60 to 80 dollars per room. Therefore, if I have to use it after every guest...well...
