The rest of the house is shared with me (the homeowner). Please be sure this is acknowledged before inquiring or booking. Listing description must be read and understood**
When inquiring, please tell me about yourself, your trip, and the people you are bringing.
IMPORTANT: Please do not bring young children! The house is not childproof and many areas of the house may be unsafe for young children.

As an advisory to those with animal allergies, there is one cat living in the house. He stays out of the guest rooms.
The house is a single-family detached house, built in 1956 but was updated throughout the years, with the majority of it being in 2014. The guest bedrooms are upstairs. They are separate and have doors for privacy. The large room has queen-size bed and a 32" flatscreen HD TV. The TV service is brought to you by DirecTV. The small room has a full-size bed, and an all-in-one computer equipped with Windows 10. The computer can be moved to use the desk for a laptop computer. Portable TV (no cable) available for small room
The bathroom is in the hallway between the two rooms. Closet/dresser space available in both rooms. Bedroom/bathroom essentials such as bed linens and quilts, towels, shampoo, soap are provided.
The large room has always been the popular choice among guests using just one room. If using just one room, rest assured the upstairs guest space will not be used by other guests at the same time.
My bedroom and bathroom are downstairs. Guests may also use the downstairs bathroom.
I respect guest's privacy.
Guests will have access to all common living areas of the house (kitchen, living room, etc), and may use the washer/dryer free of charge.
The driveway is large enough to hold one car next to mine. If possible, please park your car in the driveway, to help avoid neighbor complaints by accidentally blocking their driveways.
Guests may help themselves to foods provided and may store their own foods in the refrigerator and pantry. Breakfast foods, including but not limited to: cereal, fruit, hard-boiled eggs, yogurt, and juices, are provided.
Weather permitting, guests may enjoy the back yard patio, and may use the charcoal BBQ grill. I will provide instructions on operating the Sunsetter retractable awning.
The house has keyless entry. The code, along with instructions on how to open/lock the door, will be given upon arrival. Guests can come and go as they please; there is no "curfew".
Guests can make themselves at home and treat the house as it was theirs, but please respect that I also live in the house.
I work full time on weekdays from 8:00 to 4:30 (hours may vary). After work, I come home and eat dinner. Weekends I am out for a good part of the day (depending on season), but year-round, I am always home in the evenings.
The house will be open while I am on vacation. When inquiring or booking, I will inform guests whether I am home or traveling during that time. If I am away, guests can access the house using the keyless entry.

This is a nice, peaceful neighborhood. Neighbors generally keep to themselves and do not disturb anyone.
We spent only one night in this property, we are a family of three adults. The neighborhood was quieted and the rooms were very cozy. I'll recommend this property to anyone looking for a good night rest.
Enjoyed our stay. Everything was very tidy and clean. Freddie is a sweetheart. Great location for us. Nice bedrooms and bath. Would recommend. Karin was very nice to deal with.
Property was clean and perfect location close to family. Karin wasn't home at the time but was in constant contact with us in case we needed anything. Her cat, Freddie was a joy. We would definitely stay here again the next time we plan on coming into the area.
My family and I love staying with Karin and Freddie , they are great host made everyone feel right at home... I highly recommend staying here, we are sure to come back soon...
