I am originally from Oklahoma but have lived in Sacramento/Elk Grove, CA for over 30yrs. I am a stay at home mom and my husband is retired. We have 6 kids, with our youngest being 13 and 14. We spend most of our time traveling for sporting events: Wrestling, soccer, and baseball. I enjoy taking care of my family and cooking. I am from a family of 10 so family is very important to me (us). We've never tried anything like this before but my oldest daughter (who will be joining us) recommended this as an alternative to hotels for both cost and experience. I showed the kids the pictures of your home and they're very excited about the ocean being across the street.
