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

Le logement

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.

Accès des voyageurs

The house, the swimming pool, free parking in the driveway or curb if more than one car, washer and dryer (at nominal charge for several loads), private bathroom with shower and bath, yard, fireplaces indoor and outdoor, and of course, yours truly

Échanges avec les voyageurs

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.

Autres remarques

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.

Règlement intérieur

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!

David made our experience as painless as possible. He's funny, willing to help, and he's got great voice when he sings! My friend and I were caught in bad traffic and arrived later than expected. David kept in touch with us, trying his best to accommodate our ETA. After we arrived he showed us around, introduced local restaurants, and prepared everything for us to come back late (we were going to a concert that night and couldn't make it back before midnight). It's a pity that we left the next morning and didn't have more time to chat.

The neighborhood is quite safe and David is very kind and cooperative with your schedule. David is an intellectual and you will benefit from interacting with him in conversation. The pictures are accurate about how the house looks.

House was nice and in a safe environment. All amenities listed were available. Host was a bit intimidating at first and is quite talkative but you get used to it. Room is very affordable.

Réponse de David :
Pardon ME? I appreciate the kind words about the place, BUT ... you MIGHT have mentioned that you first wanted to drink booze and go for swims at all hours. ORRR that you hung around the house ALL day with me, without a word of complaint. Ever see a Bible, Koran, or any other scripture? They're BIG books. If people behaved, they'd be a LOT smaller.

The neighborhood was beautiful and close by to a lake and some restaurants. David was very talkative and friendly, but there were some comments that were inappropriate to make to two young women staying in a stranger's home. We felt uncomfortable by some of these comments, but we know they were meant jokingly. The rooms were nice and spacious, but the downstairs area was cluttered and had a slight odor. We did not have any issues with the room we stayed in.

Réponse de David :
Poisonally, I think your criticisms would be more appropriately directed PRIVATELY to me, particularly since the unspecified, supposedly unladylike comments might be construed by readers as Come-Ons, not INNOCENT COMPLIMENTS when you were all made up and fancy dressed en route to a wedding, after first arriving in plaid shirts and slacks that look like yard work clothes. In that context, don't you think it's RELEVANT after my flattering comments that YOU DIDN'T COME BACK ALL NIGHT? Regarding the slight odor you mention, I carefully explained my garbage system for avoiding such problems. That said, NO system is PERFECT. Aside from being around THREE TIMES your age, and guessing that even a lion's or bear's sense of smell wanes with time, I would also guess that a male lion or bear smell more than females do, and males of pretty much every species are less tidy than females, SOOO ... instead of holding your breath till now to jack me with a comment for all the world to see, WHY didn't you simply ASK me to open a window or take the garbage out when you were HERE? Garbage pickup is 2X/week. I go to the gym almost every day. There's a big garbage can in front. CLUTTERED? Clutter implies disarray. Would you say, dear reader, that most ANTIQUE STORES are ... cluttered, meaning there are lots of things around? I think that anyone who's been here would agree that everything out could well be in an antique store, and none--I rrrepeat, NONE--of it would be in a JUNK shop, and if it were, it would soon be snatched up by an antique dealer or collector, who knows a Good Thing when they see one.

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.
