the house is wonderful and John spent the time to explain the workings of things plus he was available if there were any questions. we had the opportunity to enjoy the place to ourselves as well as to entertain family. the pool was great and we had the chance to BBQ twice. enjoyed the televisions inside and out. we also enjoyed having Bailey inside the house when we were present, he is so quiet that sometimes we didn't know where he moved to. it is nice to be in a private setting away from everything yet be only 12 minutes from Von's, CVS or Target and 88 Market (an asian market) as well as being 15 minutes from a Costco and plenty of restaurant options. at night you have the opportunity to check out the stars. thanks to John and Lilia for making the house available.
