Hi, my name is Raymond and this is my home and I share it with my partner. I manage the rental house and the garden. I have lived in sunny Sacramento for over 10 years. I am originally from New Jersey, and lived in New York City for a long time before relocating to California. I grew up in a multi-lingual family and I speak Spanish and Portuguese in addition to English. I also understand a little bit of Italian, I am the son of an Italian father and Argentine mother. I enjoy meeting people from other parts of the USA and the world, and look forward to sharing my home with visitors on their journey.
I, myself, love to travel and try to go abroad at least once a year. I am very familiar with Latin America and Southern Europe. From traveling and staying in family run accommodations I have learned some insight on what makes travelers comfortable and try to provide that here.
I am an urban planner and designer by practice and training, and consult on urban planning issues in the Sacramento area. I love art, music and the physical city, including buildings and gardens, from the small to the monumental. I also enjoy nature and try to take advantage of all the wonderful beauty that California has to offer. The house tries to honor the environment and has many non-toxic and environmentally friendly features. The garden also strives to be organic, with no chemicals and many permaculture techniques. The chickens are mostly organic, minus the occasional dose of old scones from a local cafe. There is often a surplus of eggs here, and fresh eggs for breakfast is one of the perks of this Garden Cottage. If you stay, you may run into my mom Eunice who tends the Garden. She's a vivacious 80-something certified jokester, and always enjoys meeting new people.
