Wake up watching the sunrise from bed--the REAL one, not sawed off by jagged rooftops. Fields n trees out every window. Birds of every kind tend the flowerbeds. Pick berries n pop em in yr mouth. Best book n record collections you'll ever see. I just changed the Cancellation Policy to be fair to myself, because people often canceled too late for someone else to book, BUT have OFFERED full refunds when expedience calls for it. Also will reduce extra guest fee if 3 can sleep on a king-size bed
The property is surrounded by trees, providing seclusion, less than five minutes from the 2nd largest shopping mall in the country, five more to a major university and cultural center, or beaches as lovely and pristine as any on earth. Several supermarkets are nearby, a big farm, a Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, and Costco. Someone requested throwing a party for 15 here. There is no pricing option for that. $250 for up to 10; $500 for up to 25 seems fair. There's room for 100 in the yard, May - October.

It depends on the guests, of course. I've spoken at institutes and conferences, and done stand-up comedy. I DO know the entire county better than anyone else from 10 years visiting every business several times over for the small business lobby, and am delighted to tell folks where to get the best pies and seafood, for instance. LA FItness is two minutes away with free three-day trial memberships if you care to join me.
Meals are not included, and Donald Trump wishes he ate like my sometime companion's meals. I'm also often told I should take a picture of my weekend brunches. If YOU'VE got the touch, we can Trade Experiences; likewise share food IF we share REPLENISHING it. Some Things are entitled to be selfish about. Just 'cause Bill Gates gives you a taste of his vintage wine, doesn't mean he wants you pokin around in his wine cellar. I'm the same way about preserves and a few other things like salami I drive 3+ hours for.
I AM up at first light generally, and tend to doze earlyish at night, so you might do your trumpet practicing BEFORE 9PM, s'ils vous play. There are also, like sports, house rules and game rules and EARTH rules. I wet m'self when I shower, soap up, and rinse off, using lukewarmish water if that. If YOU wanna stand under hot running water for forty minutes, it's $5/shower. Anyone remember seeing The Cyclone roller coaster in Coney Island in the middle of the Atlantic after the hurricane like The Statue of Liberty at the end of Planet of the Apes? (Get the HINT?) One person's luxurious shower is a thousand others' devastation. Same deal with laundry. Wanna use a fresh bath AND face towel every day? Be my guest; just remember: you're also the PLANET'S. Pony up! I'm also finicky about bringing food to the bedroom. Enjoy seeing trees out the window, not walls? Straaange critters live in them green things and the dirt they grow in, with green blood and more legs than us folks and all kinds of other monstrous parts and senses. I don't wanna have to spray POISON in or around the house because some FOOL (oops! I mean guest) HAS TO eat chips with tartar sauce n cookies with sauerkraut in BED!

I write the blog for a university Innovation Center, have spoken at institutes and conferences on Life As a Reading Comprehension Test, and the like, which I've taught in two thousands classrooms from 1st Grade to post-doctoral psychologists, and interviewed luminaries throughout the arts on their Common Bonds while editing a theatre magazine. My children stayed with me when I divorced. My twin sons competed for state championships in three sports. You know the one about 95% perspiration? They toasted me when they left for an illustrious college on scholarships for never once browbeating them to study this or practice that to get there. Devotions beget devotions.
I also spent many years as the county liaison to the small busines lobby, so I know more people and places than anyone else here.
If you're familiar with that Johnny Cash song, "I been everywhere, man," in Comfort Inn commercials, I have, and if I'd found a sweeter, more serene spot than where I'm sitting now, writing this, I'd be there, instead. I have perhaps the best book and music collections you'll ever see, and for example, played a Prokofiev concerto while a family from Russia was getting ready for a wedding, and showed a volume of poems in English and Russian to their son, who didn't read Russian well.
A word about the Reviews is in order. Almost all my guests have been first-timers. Someone complained recently that the sheets didn't match, for example, forgetting WHY this is called AIRbnb: she was lucky to have a BED, let alone two, not an AIR mattress, and surmised WRONGLY that the toilet wasn't cleaned regularly because there is a ring at the bottom where the porcelain has worn somewhat FROM cleaning it regularly for 20 years since I replaced it, along with a new tile (not linoleum) floor, bathtub/shower, and vanity, which is SOLID OAK, not pressboard held together with formaldehyde, and has two sinks. The best of tiles will fade somewhat in time, shower tiles especially. Variegated beige on tile MAY look like mold, but ISN'T. You'll see a squeegee on the shower sundries holder, and beaucoup cleansers under the vanity. I didn't pour half of them down the drain, to fool people into thinking I used them. Many people have nothing but a salt and pepper shaker and napkin holder out in their home,, and confuse four small stacks of records in front of a stereo console with "clutter," or worse. Phono records don't LAST 50 years if there is dust around. They also forget that Airbnb is not REALbnb. This is not a full-time business establishment for guests ONLY. I live here. My grown children, who live out of town, sometimes visit. Their rack of CD's on a dresser remains out, for example, and a teddy bear, what can I tell ya. There is an empty 5 foot table, two empty desks, and an empty night table with a lamp. In short, PLENTY of room for guests to put things and work if they like. SOME people, who discovered at the last minute that relatives here, who thought they didn't have room for them, suddenly do, and will say ANYTHING to try getting out of PAYING at least for the day they arrived, which prevented anyone else from even inquiring, whom I might have contacted to fill the vacancy. I try to be fair to EVERYONE, including myself. SEVERAL guests have stayed several nights, several of them with CHILDREN, whom I'm sure they would not let suffer IF there were anything to suffer about.
