Quiet residential zone with large lot and huge oak trees but loud party had noise complain from neighbor and police got called in. So loud party is prohibited as any other home should be. Specially after 10 pm. House is walking distance to small village that has breakfast, brewery, popular Spanish food restaurant , Star bucks also about 1/2 mile.. Rain forest feel Bridge are in walking distance.

The house was so great with such a beautiful setting. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Deer wandered through daily, and the area had plenty of stuff to keep us occupied.

Beautiful yard not a beautiful experience

  • 2 of 5

The experience was not a very good one. We paid over $1k for one night and the home was in poor shape due to the prior renters trashing the house. We had requested to check in early months in advance. The home had not been cleaned well nor were we able to get in early yet due to no communication in this, we did arrive at the house only to find many cars and a mess. We then woke up our family at 2am since they clearly were not ready for us. The next day, the owner who was confused apparently, was not very professional when sending me an email and confused us for the renters who trashed her home. The house was nice but dull knives, dirty dishes in cupboards and overall NOT the quality expected for the price paid. We woould only request again if able to actually speak with them vs email. I travel internationally each month and have not had this type of experience in many years.

Lovely house - does not sleep 10 as advertised

  • 3 of 5

This is a beautiful house in a delightful setting but to say that it sleeps 10 is an exaggeration.

Peaceful retreat perfect for socializing

  • 5 of 5

This home was a perfect venue for our annual women's retreat. The house is beautiful and has plenty of spaces for small groups to spread out. One group could be in the game room watching tv, another could be in the living room playing games by the fireplace, another could be in the informal dining area sitting around the table, another could be at the table in the front dining room, and so on. Even in January the backyard was a wonderful space to sit and enjoy nature and the sounds of the fountain (and the backyard too has several distinct areas for smaller groups -- or individuals who need some quiet time -- to sit). The house is at the end of a quiet street and is very secluded.

We had a group of six staying at the house and we invited more friends over to socialize in the afternoon and evening. There was plenty of parking on the property, enough for 10+ cars if some don't mind being parked in. There is an excellent choice of restaurants nearby, and we had our Saturday night meal catered by Carmelita's -- highly recommended!

The owner was very responsive and attentive, so I was able to get answers to any questions we had before and during our stay. We would love to come back.
