Belinda did a wonderful job.
Firstly, the unit is truly beautiful and very clean. It looks like it was recently remodeled, with a modern bathroom and kitchenette. The place was very nicely decorated, showing Belinda's eye for beauty. I especially appreciated the small touches like the fully stocked bath (organic shampoo, conditioner, and body wash). The unit is in the back part of the house with a separate entrance, in a quiet gated community next to a beautiful lake.
Belinda really wanted to help us feel welcome. There was a bottle of wine and two glasses waiting for us when we arrived. She also repeatedly asked what she could do to make our visit to the area more comfortable. Although given our schedule, we never actually met Belinda in person, she was a wonderful host - between her planning, and her responsiveness to calls and texts.
Belinda has obviously thought through the guest experience. She offered us check-in and check-out time flexibility and easy access through the use of code access (instead of keys). This made it simple for us because our schedule involved leaving early Sunday morning and some "last minute" check-in time requests.
A short 15 minute drive to Harbin Hot Springs made it the ideal place for us to stay off the land while attending a weekend celebration with friends.
I would definitely recommend Belinda's beautiful, quiet studio for anyone visiting the area.
Belinda is such a warm and welcoming host. I arrived there late and she was so friendly and gracious... with such beautiful energy.
The studio is larger than I expected and so stunningly beautiful!! I love all her designer touches and the bottle of wine with two wine glasses awaiting us.... so very well appointed, peaceful with a most serene patio where I watched many birds come to feed so near to me and a wondrous view of nearby deer coming to say hello. I look forward for staying there in the future!!!
The large yard was so great for my doggie and fully enclosed
We had a great weekend at Belinda's apartment. It was very clean and well equipped - We really enjoyed the tea, coffee and wine. Belinda was very accommodating and friendly. Would definitely stay again!
We had a WONDERFUL experience staying at Belinda's place! She welcomed us and showed us the place, which was very tastefully decorated! She put so much love and attention to detail in it! She had a spare sleeping pad for my child prepared. She even had a complimentary bottle of wine waiting for us! There was a binder with information about local attractions and she gave us recommendations on where to eat and what to see. The place had a WiFi as well. The kitchen was equipped not only with dishes but also with a variety of teas from Republic of Tea and Peets coffee!!:)) her house is located in a gated community and we felt very safe. It was lovely and relaxing to sit on the comfortable patio! The house is very close to a nice lake and is only 15 minutes away from Harbin Hot Springs. We had a great stay and will come back again!
It was a great experience being at Belinda's beautiful studio!!
Thanks so much for welcoming us in such a nice way!
Really nice, comfy and quiet place. Not far from Lakes, shops, bars and restaurants. Gated community with plenty of wildlife to see.... I'll stay again.
This is an idyllic self contained space with stunning views over the countryside. Check in instructions were very clear and easy to follow. The apartment was very clean and Belinda had provided wine, water and milk for us. The apartment is beautifully decorated and has a spacious outdoor deck with BBQ which is very peaceful to sit in. We loved staying here and would've liked to stay longer!
About the Host, Belinda
I lived in Marin County for 25 years and then had an opportunity to travel the western United States for two years in my RV, Gypsy Wind. I visited Harbin Hot Springs often and fell in love with the area. In 2011, I bought my house and spent the next year transforming it into a beautiful home!
During my travels, I always appreciated staying in beautiful places. Now, I am happy to provide a beautiful place for you!
And for those of you who hear the call of the open road... my RV, Gypsy Wind, is available for rent. Please visit my other listing - "RV Rental -RS Adventurous". I'd love to assist you in creating your road trip adventure.
I enjoy my home with my 2 dogs, Miles, a black mini poodle and Kira, a sweet rescued German Shepherd. I visit Harbin Hot Springs often, love movies, novels, hiking, sitting on my deck with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, dining with friends and attending various workshops and events that interest me.
Please feel free to contact me. I look forward to assisting you in making your visit a memorable one!
