Weitere wichtige Infos
We live in the heart of the redwood forest and cell phone reception can be spotty depending on your service provider. Most phones will receive a signal but you may have to be outside to use the phone.
We provide excellent high speed internet which will allow (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) and other video calls if you use those systems.
We have two cats. They are older indoor pets and are restricted to our living area.
We have a couple beehives on the property well out of walking areas. Most people don't even know they are here. We have extra bee suits if you would like us to show you the inside of a hive. Weather permitting.
We expect that Airbnb guests will know how to abide by common courtesies and a few of our specific rules.
-Treat the place with respect like it is you own
-Replace dishes, cookware, back into the cupboards all cleaned up after you've used them
-Observe quiet time after 10 pm and before 8 am--we'll do the same
-No burning of candles, open flame or smoking of any kind inside or outside
-Save our septic system--only biodegradable matter can be flushed or go down the drain
-Be energy efficient, turning off lights and heaters when you leave
Thanks in advance!
HI, Sue and I are both retired, have our large home all to ourselves and decided to convert the lower level to a guest suite. When we travel we stay in Airbnbs and have taken note from many of the special hosts and places we have stayed in order to offer you some of the best features we've experienced world-wide.
Our profile photo was taken while snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Adventure seeking is always a part of traveling for us. Our motto is "Do it while you can and do it with gusto!"
We are active and enjoy our hobbies at home, visits with our family and friends, traveling, backpacking, skiing and snowboarding. We always enjoy our travels but always feel that we are coming home to the best spot on earth.
Sue is a Master Gardener and can often be found out in the gardens planting, maintaining and expanding our landscaping and trails on our 2 1/2 acre lot. She invites you to tour the gardens while staying with us. She loves cooking, reading, Yoga, exercising, hiking, family and friends.
Allen collects, restores, rides and races vintage road race motorcycles and can often be found tinkering in the garage. He may be fine tuning his bikes for the next race, machining parts on the mill, powder coating or painting a bike part or redesigning his bikes for greater performance and durability.
Another motto…."Never a dull moment".
