About Dave & Lisa
We love hosting travelers and sharing gardening tips. We have been hosting Farm Tours and Farm to Picnic meals for over 6 years. Our efforts to promote sustainable farming have been featured on CBS, the Huffington Post and the Mercury News to mention a few. Dave loves sailing. He has sailed halfway around the world (Seychelles to Trinidad via the Cape of Good Hope) and has taught advanced sailing for the University of California Irvine. Dave speaks a bit of Spanish and German and can say hello and thank you in 10 other languages. Prior to dedicating his life to sustainable living, he worked as an aerospace consultant for NASA. Lisa loves all creatures great and small and has probably had every kind of pet you can imagine. If you want to bring your hamster, she knows how to take care of it! Lisa loves cooking, not just easy things, she makes her own yogurt and bread from scratch. We have two furry members of our family, both females. Kiely is a 13 year old calm husky who welcomes every guest with warmth and class like she is running the Airbnb herself! Bella, a Chihuahua puppy, is know to wiggle and dance if you sing a song.

Felt Like Home
Dave and Lisa were incredibly hospitable hosts. They were very responsive via text.
They catered to all of our requests, including our very late arrival. My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We're really going to miss the fresh eggs and veggies from their garden.
The house was very clean, and Dave was very unobtrusive when he visited the house for maintenance or to greet a new guest. Our room was very large, with a comfortable living room. The kitchen had all the necessary appliances and there was more than enough fridge space. WiFi works well throughout and outside of the house.
The house is situated at the end of the road, so there is more than enough consistent parking in front of the house.
Dave and Lisa created a very friendly environment, inviting all of their guests out for dinner on multiple occasions so we could get to know each other. We learned a lot about making cheese and yogurt from Lisa, brewing beer, keeping a productive garden, and raising chickens.
Gynelle and I really appreciated our stay here, and would recommend this property to anyone!
Thanks for the great and detailed review Armand! We and the other guests loved having you and Gynelle around. We look forward to a return visit from you both next summer while you guys save animals on both land and sea with your awesome jobs. Cheers!
