House Information very important and mandatory.
Welcome to our home,
Gracie and Skip hope you enjoy our home and the wonderful outdoor and cultural activities available to you and yours here on the central coast.
Any problems or questions please call Gracie or Skip at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).. General house description:
• Caution: There is a single step down in the main entryway. Since the step has the same tile and color on both levels, some may find this step a little difficult to see, especially in the evenings.
• There is an “electric light tube” in the entry clothes closet that can be placed at the step. Plug it into the outlet on the west wall above the step and rest the tube against the vertical step case for an additional reminder.
• The front door has two locking methods, a deadbolt latch (keyed) and a dual button locking mechanism on the side edge of the door. The lower side button “depressed” is the unlocked position. Try it so you can understand how it works. Be careful not to lock yourself out.
• Extra house keys are in the green wooden bowl as you enter the front door. Please return the keys to the bowl as you leave.
• The front door (the Green Door) opens to an entryway and has a coat closet for you to share. Upon entry you can go up the stairs to the guest rooms and private office level and the den. A “fourth” bathroom with shower is at one end of this main upper level hall and available for your use. This top-level floor also has a “guest suite” area with another connected hallway on the east side of our house. That shorter hallway leads to two guest bedrooms, a full bath (with tub and shower) and the laundry room.
• The two guest bedrooms have closet and drawer spaces for your use. We also cleared bathroom drawers for you to use.
• Our private business office is located on the main upper level hallway on the Westside. We have posted a sign there on the closed door asking you to respect our privacy. We ask you not to enter this office area. Thank you in advance.
• At the north end of this same level one hall is a short stairway down to the den/TV room. We call this “level two”. The outside decks and spa/hot tub are located on this deck level.
• If instead of going “upstairs” you choose to go “downstairs” from the entry level (three) you will first be on the “Master Suite” area (level four). On this level there is a guest half bathroom, a utility closet (brooms, mops, and vacuum cleaner), and the entry to the Master Suite hall, again on the east side of the house. There you will see entry doors to the master closet, the master bedroom, and the master (full) bathroom. Closet space and drawers have been cleared for you use.
• The kitchen and studio/office area is another level down (level five). From that floor level go down the third set of stairs to the living room and dining room areas and outside to the first level deck (level six). From that deck one can go down yet another set of steps to access the walkway/ramp leading to the beach and the bay of Morro Bay.
3. Lights: Please turn them off when you depart.
• Many of the lights in our house are under computer control and the light switch functions are currently in the process of being re-deployed (software reprogramming). The switches are best operated at the moment with a very quick depression and release of each. Practice a little and you’ll get the knack of it.
• These switches are unlabeled, so we suggest that you use a trial and error approach depressing the switches to learn which you prefer to have on or turn off.
• Some switches in the bedrooms, bathrooms, laundry room, and closets are not under computer control.
• There is one switch next to the thermostat control that is an “all on/off” switch for all of the computer-controlled lights. This switch is located on the eight-button switch pad next to the thermostat on the “Master Suite” hall level (level four). The exact button is the lowest leftmost button. If you get a little confused and are not sure about how to turn some lights off, just turn them all on with this button, and then turn them all off with a second depression of the same button.
4. Furnace Thermostat – Please turn off when you depart
Located on the Master Suite level four on the west wall between the utility closet and the entry-level stairs. The flap door was left open. Turn it on for heat. You’ll see the temperature adjustments there.
5. Hot Tub: Please check water levels and refill the tub as necessary. If you wish to turn the hot tub completely off, please call us for instructions.
• Fill Level - Use the short garden hose to bring the water level above the air jets.
• The hot tub is located on the upper northwest deck. We keep it at 98 degrees F. I am told never to raise the temperature above 104F. There are air jets with controls as well.
• Please be very careful to have beach towels with you on the deck or just inside the deck access door. The hot tub uses bromine in the water and water dripped inside the house on teak floors, carpet and rugs will cause damage. You are responsible for preventing this damage. Thanks for your care and understanding. More “hot tub towels” are kept in the laundry room closet.
• Please keep the hot tub covers latched down with the three straps when the tub us not in use. Weather changes frequently are accompanied by high winds here and the top will blow off in the strong gusts, resulting in damage to glass and lights on the deck. You are responsible for preventing this damage.
7. Studio office: Located across from the kitchen entry. Please do not use or change the computer or network equipment in this room.
• Feel free to use the chairs and the tabletops and the books. There is a storage closet in this room. Inside the closet is another door leading to a separate utility closet. The utility closet houses the water heater and the electrical control panel for the stereo equipment. You shouldn’t need to get into this room, so please call us before you try using the equipment inside the utility closet.
• The BBQ is located outside east side of the dining area and accessed through the north sliding deck door and down the deck stairs. There is a gas valve on/off lever that needs to be “vertical” for the gas BBQ to operate. Please turn it off (horizontal) after every use. There is an “ignition” knob to light the fire after both of the gas knobs are turned to the “high” position. If damp, the ignition switch can be difficult and may require a match from the fireplace stove to light the gas BBQ.
10. Fire Place/Stove – Living Room
• Fire Logs, Matches/fire lighter.
• Please use the prepackaged logs in this “stove” fireplace. More logs may be found in the front door entryway coat closet. (If you find a leftover log in the fireplace. Please discard that log and do not attempt to use it. Use a new one.)
• There is a flue on the top of the stove door. If the stove is hot, use one of the fireplace tools to open or close the door and/or to adjust the flue. To light a fire, open the flue all of the way (to the left), place ONE log into the stove (read the instructions on the log to prep the paper wrapper). Never place more than ONE log at a time into the stove.
• Light the paper packaging. Close and latch the stove door. After the log is burning (about 3 to 5 minutes) adjust (partially close) the flu opening to control flame height and heat output. Use a fireplace tool to avoid burning yourself.
• The stove door window is prone to being blackened by suit. Clean the window with Windex located under the east main kitchen sink and paper towels located by the kitchen stovetop. Warning: This process can be messy if you use too much Windex.
9. Stereo equipment:
• Ours is a very high-end stereo system and is here for your (and of course our) pleasure and enjoyment. You are most welcome to use it, but you do so with full responsibility for replacing any damage done. So please read and follow these instructions carefully. And please call us with any doubts and/or questions.
• On/off sequence
• There are instruction papers with diagrams in the cabinet. They are folded in half and tucked on the left side to the lower shelf. They may help you to understand these instructions.
• Turn the system on:
• The Integrated Amplifier is the large box on the on the left side of the lower shelf of the stereo cabinet.
• Turn the large circular volume knob completely counterclockwise (to the left) until you feel the “stop”. This action will adjust the integrated amplifier to zero (no sound). If you forget this step you have potential for severely damaging the speakers. You could have bought a BMW 750il for what you are now going to pay us to replace damaged speakers. I tell you this with humor, but I am not kidding!!!
• Depress the cone-like switch on the left of this box to power off. Leave the sound switch in the “zero” position for now.
• There are two smaller buttons to the right of the on/off switch. The first is depressed for CD play, the second is depressed for
• Radio (tuner) play.
• Playing CDs:
• VERY IMPORTANT - CD’s will be irreparably damaged if you don’t follow these instructions exactly and carefully…
• CD player – The CD player is a ”Professional” CD player. The difference operationally from the CD players you probably have used in the past is that this player device is a ”TOP LOADER” and uses a “puck”. The puck is a metal round platter with a circular handle centered on its top. Its purpose is to hold and stabilize the CD on the player’s spindle and must be used to hold and play the CD.
• To insert a CD, slide the top panel back, place the CD on the spindle. Be sure the interior spindle is not spinning. (Depress the “stop” switch if it is running). Hold the round puck by the handle. Then place the puck over the CD so that it securely holds the CD in place on the player’s spindle. Then slide the cover door closed. Push the “start” button. If your forget to use the puck or do not properly secure the CD with the puck on top of the CD, the CD will fly off of the spindle at very high speed and permanently damage the CD. Some of the CDs are irreplaceable and some are so rare that they cost over $100 to replace. Please be careful.
• Radio: There are very few stations (really only one KPIG) that can be received here in this house. We think operation is fairly intuitive but if you are unsure please call us for help.
• Once a sound source is “running” … THEN GO BACK AND SLOWLY TURN UP THE VOLUME CONTROL (clockwise).
• Turn the system off:
• TURN DOWN THE VOLUME CONTROL (counterclockwise).
• Be sure that the CD is OFF! (Depress the “Stop” switch on the CD Player.)
• REVERSE THE “TURN ON” procedure.
• Thanks for being careful!
• The washer, dryer, and fold down iron/ironing board are available for your use. Please use the detergent tablets in the shelves above the washing machine. Appliance information is on shelves above washing machine.
• The water meter and property cutoff valve is at the top of the property about midway between the neighboring lots. A whole house, but not irrigation valve is located under the small deck on the west side of the house where the steps go down to the north “yard”.
• The main electrical panel is located outside on the east side of the house below (north) of the fenced in garbage area. This is the only power on/off location for the hot tub. It also controls four subpanels. The laundry room subpanel controls most of the power outlets and lights power. The upstairs den power subpanel is located in the upstairs hall. The downstairs living room stereo equipment power subpanel is located in the utility closet. The master bedroom area electrical subpanel is located behind the hall entryway closet.
Canoes: Use at your own risk:
• You are welcome to use our two canoes but at your own risk. The red canoe can safely handle two adults and a dog or child. The green canoe only handles one person. Under the north lower deck you will find paddles and seat cushions (they float) and life jackets. If you do use the canoes you release Gracie and Skip from any and all liabilities. You must supply (as necessary) and are required to wear life vests at all times while on the water. Life vests can be rented in Morrow Bay where you can also rent Kayaks and other canoes. Canoe paddles can be found under the north deck. If using our canoes and related equipment, please understand that you are releasing us from Any and all liabilities.
• There is an outdoor shower with both hot and cold water, located on the west side of the house to rinse off bay sand and mud. Please use it before reentering the house. Outdoor towels can be found in the laundry room closet. Please place them outside the house before adventuring into the bay and wash them after use.
Garbage pickup is on Friday mornings at 7 a.m. …. Best to put up the three garbage cans Thursday evenings. They are placed on the edge of the street.

I am a magazine publisher and professional sports photographer. My passions are swimming, photography, and people. I was drawn to Airbnb for two reasons: one I travel a lot for work and I understand the high cost of lodging, two I have a large home and extra space I don't mind sharing with others. As a host I am OCD when it comes to cleanness and keep my home extreemley clean always. I have a two double digit children who don't share the same love for cleanliness, but I always prevail. :) I ask you before you book with us to please keep in mind that we are not a full service hotel and we will not have valet parking waiting for your when you arrive. What you will have is a nice, clean and comfortable place for you during your stay. As a guest I am very respectful of other property, and trustworthy. I will leave 5 star reviews even if everything isn't perfect. I don't expect you to be a 5 star hotel either. I respect and appreciate that you are sharing your home with me as well. If I book with you it's because I am looking for a home like environment and affordable lodging . When I need to be pampered I will book my stay at the Four Seasons and pay the $1000.00 Plus a night for such service.
