The guest room is large and quiet (it sits in the front of the house, away from other bedrooms). Guests can enjoy the common areas of the kitchen/living room area and the bright, plant-filled solarium. The outdoor space provides many areas to sit or slumber.

Other things to note
Like to cook? We do too. In fact we are in the kitchen quite a bit with active projects, harvest processing and fermentations happening all year. So we are open to sharing kitchen and appreciate communication around times and equipment use. Many guests have left with a Kombucha scoby starter as a souvenir.

I work I in health care and fitness. My daughter Alexa is a barista. My dog Neo , part Australian Kelpie, dreams of having a flock of sheep to herd. We enjoy our 1955 Eichler home with its indoor/ outdoor lifestyle and laid back neighborhood a bridge and tunnel away from the City.
I'm passionate about cooking, gardening and dance, spending many creative moments in those realms.
