We stayed in Kristen's guest-house for a week in April. The location is ideal - a quiet, homey neighborhood of leafy streets, three blocks from the main street and the I-5 freeway to everywhere. The cottage is behind the garage in the garden behind the main house, which was empty, so we got to use the driveway. Total privacy, very quiet, airy, charming... just what we wanted. We didn't get to meet Kristen, but her manager was very friendly and helpful, and they were both very responsive. Generous closet space, a very comfy bed, and we enjoyed our coffee and newspaper outside under the arbor. We felt completely safe leaving the windows open (which isn't always a given!) Thanks to both Kristen and Sally for the efforts you've put in to making this a cozy, comfortable place.
