Our unusual pet: Cosmic Dust is a a semi-wild Turkish Van Cat, getting used to domestic life). Please DO NOT try and pet her or play with her with your hands or toes. You will regret it.

DRIVE SLOW: The driveway dusty in the summer. Help us keep it down! it really dusts the house.
Be sure to sign our guest book and leave you contact info. email us pics we will post it them here. Visit our Pinterest page called 'Coastal Wine Country'.
Weather: It is sweater weather, so 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, it takes a minute to get 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 is pretty good but can be unreliable and we're listed in the wrong place on a few of them.
The stairs going down are steep and a bit narrow as was customary in 1910. Please be careful.
Cat Rules: 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 very curious and will rub up against you and head butt into you (A Turkish Van Trait). She stays in after dark. Close your bedroom door to keep her out of your space (She likes to run under the bed and attack feet). Do 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 nice home with good care and was saved from the side of a mountain where she was abandoned. Otherwise she is very smart and nice. 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 on Weekends.
This is a shoes off inside 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 happen with contributions. Alternatively, here are many fabulous eating places in the area, we are frugal and eat at home often. We like good company and conversation.
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. California is in a drought- please conserve on water in showers and share towels. Our septic cannot handle a washer and dryer- so we go to town, so you cannot do laundry.

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.
