Our flight was delayed, making our arrival time super late, but Dana was very accommodating and we were warmly welcomed. The beds were amazingly comfortable and Dana served us a nice breakfast on the first morning. The location was perfect for us, central to Napa, Muir Woods, and…

Dana's home is tidy, accommodating, and offers everything that one would ever need in a homestay (except a microwave oven, LOL). I booked a full month's stay, a decision I am glad I made. Dana's neighborhood in Richmond is quiet, safe, orderly, and peaceful. Dana's neighbors are…

Thank you Steven for you kind words. Funny enough I am going to purchase a small micro to fit into a cabinet in the kitchen. You know how I am with counter space (mostly) :-) I also look for the opportunity to grow with each guest. Many thanks, Steven.

My oversight on common space requests... I will check on that as I thought I mentioned them. I did ask permission to enter your room if the door was closed, I thought... which is my usual M.O. And so sorry about the flea traveler as this has never been a problem before and at least you really enjoyed Cleo visiting you in your room. She will miss you for sure! It was my pleasure and hope you'll be back for a visit.

From the 1st reply Dana sent to me, all the way to checking out and saying goodby was 10 stars! Impressed by her life style, 100% wellness, POSITIVE attitude and living each day. Would do it again.

Dana is a great host, she was very helpful and fiendly. The place is very nice and has a particular sharm. So much better then a sterile hotel room.
