Comfy house near the beach with a big back yard. You have the privacy of renting the entire house. We stay at another location when the house is rented. Our home is clean, comfortable, and fully equipped with everything you'll need. We have a cat who must stay on the premises. She has her own kitty room.
The master bedroom has a Cal King bed. The 2nd bedroom has a trundle bed that makes into a King. The office (3rd bedroom) has a single hide-a-bed couch. There is a futon in the kitty's room as well as a super-comfortable couch in the living room. Those are the sleeping options.
Our belongings stay in the home, but each bedroom has closet and drawer space for you as well as hampers for your washing and a place to lay out and open your luggage.
There is a TV in each bedroom and in the kitchen.
Kitchen is well-equipped for cooking. We leave you shelves in the refrigerator and in the kitchen cabinet for whatever you pick up at the grocery. On top shelf of the frig., we leave you orange juice, butter, english muffins, eggs, and low fat milk. I leave the coffee pot loaded so that all you have to do the first morning is push a button, and you'll have hot coffee in a few minutes.

Interação com hóspedes
I like to meet guests when they arrive to give them a tour of the property and to introduce them to our cat. Other than that, we give you complete privacy. If you stay more than a week, we'll need to discuss taking out the trash to the curb, our need to come into the yard to water, and how you would like us to handle the cat box. You can do or we can come in and do it. We would arrange a time in advance with you. We won't come in the house without arranging it with you in advance. You're renting the entire property.
Outras coisas a ter em conta
One super-loving grey cat lives on the premises. Her name is "Dusty," but she thinks it's "kitty, kitty, kitty." She has her own room with plenty of food, water, toys, a view to the backyard, and her cat box. You may have her stay in her room, but she may certainly go outside during the day, as long as you call her in before bedtime. If you rent for an extended period time, we would need to talk about how their cat boxes would get cleaned and how our plants would get watered.
Please, if you smoke, do so outside. We have neighbors, so please no loud music or noise. Thanks. Also, no additional guests on the property, please.
I'm an upbeat native Southern Californian who knows the area like the back of my hand and can help you with just about any question you might have. I'm a Special Education teacher who is attempting to semi-retire, so I no longer work under contract. I substitute teach only. I live and work in Oceanside with my husband, a retired carpenter. I've lived in Oceanside since 1986 (originally from Los Angeles) and I love, love, love it.
I also love to travel and have seen a great deal of the world. I have stayed in hostels, B&Bs, and time-share resorts. My favorite thing is to see how real people in an area live, so I hope a peek into our home will be interesting to you.
Our neighborhood is not slick or upscale, but none-the-less, these little houses (I call them 1950's Cracker Jack box houses) are a tad pricey, because they are by the beach in Southern California (why that's a big deal, I don't know - there are so many amazingly beautiful places on this planet - but, I guess you can't beat the weather). Anyway, I love meeting people from all over the world, and I'm really enjoying preparing our home so that it's just right for our guests. We stay on our little sailboat and will give you complete privacy as you are renting the entire house as your own for the period of time that you stay.
By staying in our home, you are helping us afford a vacation of our own. If you also host, who knows? Perhaps we'll be staying at your house!
Hope to meet you at some time in the future! Happy Travels, Carolyn.
