DRIVE SLOW: U-turn at the top of the driveway to find HOUSE A, it is red not brown. Please DO NOT disturb our neighbors. DRIVE SLOW! The driveway is dusty in the summer. Help us keep it down! It really dusts the house if you speed up here. Use low gear. Dress in layers and bring warm clothes. Bring rain gear in winter and a wind scarf for your ears in summer. GUEST BOOK & PHOTO OP at check out time remember to go outside and snap a photo and sign our guest book.
Weather: Bring warm clothes. Evenings can be chilly in the nor cal coastal climate. If you are chilly speak up! And I will light a fire. We keep the place warm with wood heat. Do not hold it in and be cold.
Kitchen: Bring your own food, we're far enough from town that you won't want to drive back for food.
Cautions: Please arrive while it is still light. It is a country address and it's easy to get lost. GPS can be unreliable out here.
Cat Rules: DO NOT PET THE CAT. We have a semi- wild indoor/outdoor cat named Cosmic Dust. We have a strict no petting rule. She can attack. Sorry. In spite of this, hopefully she will win your heart. She is friendly and very curious and will rub up against you and head butt into you (A Turkish Van Trait). She stays in after dark. Close the door to keep her out of your space (She likes to run under the bed and attack feet). Ask for help if she won't leave. Do NOT try and pick her up. She is very cute but for your safety please refrain. We feel good that she has a loving home and was saved from the side of a mountain where she was abandoned. If you want to play with her we have kitty toys, just do NOT pet her. We really do sympathize, but it is better that way.
House: Quiet time is 9:30 PM on weekdays, 10 PM on Weekends.
This is a shoe free house. Bring socks or slippers, we don't care if they match your outfit or not.
Meals: We like people who cook and like to help make meals. Alternatively, here are many fabulous eating places in the area, we are frugal and eat at home often. We appreciate people who help out with cleaning in the kitchen after shared meals.
The septic is fragile so please be respectful by not putting more in than necessary and holding down the handle for complete flush. Please conserve on water in showers and share towels.

Hi. I am Real Estate Agent and artist/photographer who likes to travel. I used air bnb in Europe and I loved the personal experience of staying in peoples homes. I am often busy with clients. It can be a very creative environment around here! My studio is on the property which is nice. I prefer to have time to get to know my guests but if you want a retreat, that's cool too. Shared meals are always nice. I like to cook when I have time. My housemate is a wonderful man who enjoys the same. He will show you around and is very friendly. He has been having some health issues and so if he is quiet and to himself he is resting and healing up. Thank you.
