You'll sleep well in a super comfy queen-sized memory foam bed that gets rave reviews. We will provide as much or as little interaction as you like, provide tourism tips, and generally act like non-intrusive fun and caring cousins.
There's free Wi-Fi, your own private bathroom, lots of light, kitchen privileges, you are welcome to hang out on the comfy couch and watch Netflix, and a mini-orchard in the backyard that you are welcome to feast on when the fruit is ripe. There's also lots of art, primarily from Mira and Guy but also from other artist friends and children's book illustrators.
We also have 2 lovely cats who are lots of fun but also non-intrusive if you're not a big cat person. We love being airbnb hosts because of the wonderful people we've met and the ways that we are able to share our lovely home while helping others.
Our house is a warm and welcoming place, full of light, color, kindness and creativity. Lots of parking and close to public transportation, freeway to downtown or Tahoe, as well as all sorts of great restaurants a few minutes drive away. We welcome you and you can even park in the driveway if you like :)
Mira is a children's book illustrator and writer and the director of teh Childrens Book Academy, Guy works in social services. Unfortunately, the photos don't do the place justice but if you like quiet, clean, contemporary, with color and warmth and a lovely breakfast, this house is it.

Kitchen and living room during reasonable hours, garden, hammock, outdoor patio vintage table and chairs for eating or working. It's pretty lovely.
Interaction with guests
As much or as little as desired. We tend to really like our guests and when able love to take them special places or just have fun together.
This is a non-smoking house. Wine or beer is fine in moderation. You are welcome to use the kitchen if you need but you are required to clean up after yourself. I think that's just about it.
We welcome anyone who would like to stay with us and has an openness to cats and kindness.
