About this listing
Home located in beautiful Agoura Hills, California. 20 minutes from Malibu Beaches. 40 minutes from Santa barbar
There is one bedroom available in the second floor with shares the bathroom with mine. I am a quiet person so I hope I will not be a bother to my guests. The bedroom can acommodate two passengers, there is an extra charge of $20 for the second guest
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.
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 them 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 value (if they charge for tickets). I can tell you those values ahead of time (Disneyland, Adventureland, Universal Studios, etc) You can send me the value 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 always around, but they will not bother you. Only I have to tell you in case yo are allergic to dogs or you simply are not a dog person. If you are not a dog person or an animal lover I am sure you will not like my place so in such case I rather recommend you not to book my room, you see, I have had some experiences with passengers who are not into dogs and I understand they can be uncomfortable to have them around. They will bark every time someone comes in...if you are into dogs, you will understand they are just telling me someone is in...that is all...
About the presentation...lets say 'cleanliness', I have to mention I am surprise I have had very low ratings recently...not in the past.. and I clean and have the beddings washed from top to bottom, everything, sheets, covers, blankets, mattress covers, everything and the bathroom sanitized exactly the same... I sweep all the house twice a day because of dog hair...so I cant find the reason for the low ting. I assume then it may be two things: the house is old and I may break my back cleaning it will never look like a decoration magazine picture because the walls need painting...the carpets need to be replaced, the shower enclosure is old and it is impossible to make the fiber glass look white...well, it will never white anyway, the color is ivory...the other reason is that I have lots of things everywhere because I have no place to hide hem and really...I am not good to tide up. SO...I offer a clean guest area, very clean , meaning guest room, bath and access...the rest of the house is equally clean BUT NOT NEAT, and this is what you will find here :-)
So, future guests, please understand the difference between cleanliness and tidiness.. I am clean...but definitely not tidy.. and I will never be,
As you can imagine... A house with three indoors big dogs is hard to be kept in perfect order...they live inside an they are big. cannot be impeccable, otherwise I would have to be in only this activity 24/7. So, if you are looking for a house that looks like a picture of a magazine...where everything is in a place and nothing scattered around , I have to warn you, this is not what you will find here and it would be better you do not book with me rather than staying here anyway and rating me low in cleanliness :-) It is an old house and will never look perfect and then, there are the three dogs!
I am a friendly person, never in a bad mood. I will provide you with a good international breakfast, coffee or tea, toast, jelly, yogurt, cereal and fruit, some fruit to take with you for snack.
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 have no skills to put things in order, simply not.
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.
