THIS IS NOT FOR THE ENTIRE DOME HOME. I ALSO RESIDE IN A PORTION OF THE UPSTAIRS LOFT AND MANY TIMES ONE OR BOTH ROOMS ARE ALREADY BOOKED DOWNSTAIRS. Please message me ahead of time to make sure that the downstairs bedroom that you prefer, is available. Otherwise, this booking is just for the loft portion.
A great vacation starts with great accommodations. The first story of the large dome house features two bedrooms with a full bathroom and comfortably fits 12 guests. We can accommodate guests upstairs in a section of the loft with the King bed, a futon, and 2 air mattresses. The loft is open (not private for romantic times), but private enough that nobody will see you when you sleep. There is also a full, shared bathroom upstairs. Please bring an eye mask if you plan to sleep in. When the sun rises, the house is filled with natural light. Earplugs may also be necessary, as I have guests who rise early for hikes in the park. I do provide earplugs.
The Queen Private Bedroom features a comfortable, queen bedroom set (mirrored headboard with remote for overhead lighting and a mirrored dresser), and blackout curtains (for those who enjoy sleeping in). The queen bedroom is the most private, insulated room in the house for couples who like to make some noise. ;-)
The Cal King Private Bedroom features a California king-sized bed, blackout curtains (for those who enjoy sleeping in), a dresser, table, and futon (couch/bed).
There is a sofa in the living room. This sofa does not fold out into a bed, but is large and very comfortable to sleep on.
This dome house is perfect for couples, families, or groups of friends. As some of our past guests have noted, "It's cozy enough for a couple or large enough for a group." The design and layout of this amazing dome house takes full advantage of the sunlight and mountain views. The front balcony is a popular spot for star gazing (there are no street lights in our neighborhood, so light pollution is very low). The sunrise is amazing!
The large kitchen is fully equipped with many appliances, shelving for storing your groceries, plenty of room in the refrigerator, complimentary breakfast items (coffee, tea, creamer, honey, sugar, Splenda, fruit, etc.). We also have a small general store set up in the kitchen with extra groceries and drinks for those who don't have the time or want to make a trip to the grocery store.
You are welcome to dine inside or outside and enjoy the fantastic views of the natural desert and the stars. We also have 4 TV trays available for use.
Some of the local wildlife you will and might see, include bunnies, doves, quail, ground squirrels, lizards, owls, bats, bob cats and coyotes.
The dome house features stunning views of the desert and is located in a quiet, safe and peaceful neighborhood, with a large, locked, fenced-in yard.
So whether you are looking for a couples retreat, a memorable family vacation, or a girl-cation friends getaway, your stay will be enjoyable at the dome house. Check out the pictures and reviews and please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.
The loft is not for parties. Please keeps sounds to a minimum after 9pm, so other guests can sleep.
You will be permitted full access to all common areas, including kitchen with plenty of pantry and fridge space, downstairs bathroom, living room, yard, driveway and laundry room. Please try to be finished in the kitchen by 9pm, so as not to wake other guests who may be sleeping.
Общение с гостями
I reside on the property, in a section of the upstairs loft of the dome house.
I leave guests alone, unless they ask for me to visit with them. I understand the importance of privacy and give as much space as possible, so the guests are comfortable.
Другие важные подробности
If you want to book a room the same day, contact me to see if I am home and can arrange for it. I am usually able to accommodate guests for same day reservations. To ensure that the rooms are ready for guests and that I am home to let you in, I have AirBnB set up to give us 24 hours notice for any reservations.
PLEASE Always keep the front gate locked. When you leave the property (and plan to stay more than one night-you will have keys) please lock the regular lock (not deadbolt) on the front door. It is a safe neighborhood, but this adds another layer of protection.
When outside, please keep noise levels low after 9pm. Please keep noise levels down after 9pm inside the house, as well. If you plan to arrive after midnight, please try to be as quiet as possible, so as not to disturb other guests who may be sleeping. If you plan on drinking Red Bull/Coke/etc. and staying up all night playing music and/or having loud conversations, please make your reservation with a different host. We are not fans of sleep deprivation and will no longer tolerate this behavior from guests. Please also be considerate of the other guests while staying in our home.
Smoking outside is allowed, but tossing cigarettes in the yard is unacceptable. Absolutely NO SMOKING is allowed INSIDE the dome house.
We prefer the dishes be cleaned and not merely rinsed and placed back on shelves with food/grease on them. Please be considerate. There is a dishwasher. Just rinse your dishes and place them inside.
Please let us know immediately, if there is ever a problem with anything. Don't be embarrassed. We prefer to address problems immediately and ensure that your stay is comfortable with us.
We've hosted guests who didn't understand that non-flushable wipes, diaper wipes, paper towels, feminine pads, etc. are not to be flushed down the toilet. They flush the toilet multiple times trying to clear the clog and flood the bathroom. There is a plunger in the bathroom. If the toilet or anything else in the house needs attention, please contact us for assistance. If the toilet requires professional assistance to snake it out because inappropriate items were flushed down the toilet, you will be charged exactly what we are charged. No exceptions! Please only flush toilet paper down the toilet.
No hard drugs allowed on property. MJ is fine, as long as it's done outside or used in a vaporizer. We don't mind the smell, but flaming debris flying out of pipes and inside the house, potentially burning carpet, bedding, furniture, etc. is definitely not cool.
Please set recyclables in recycle trash bin. There is a bin for recyclable bottles and a bin for paper and plastic items located in kitchen pantry.
Check-in time is after 5pm. Early check-in times are possible ONLY when the property is cleaned and ready for occupancy and prior arrangements have been made. I work irregular hours as a bus driver and will have to be home to let you in. Please be clear ahead of time about your approximate time of arrival or keep me updated as you are on your way.
CHECK-OUT: Check-out time is 11am. Late check-out is only possible if there is no other occupancy the same day and arrangements have been made ahead of time. If you stay past the 11am checkout time, but leave no later than 1pm, a $20 charge will apply. If you stay past 1pm, that day's overnight rate will apply.
IMPROPER USE OF PREMISES
Guest will not
- Allow overnight occupancy of the unit exceeding the number of guests stated on the reservation confirmation,
- Use the premises for any illegal activity, including but not limited to possession, serving or consumption of alcoholic beverages by or to persons less than 21 years of age,
- Cause damage to the premises rented or to any of the neighboring properties,
- Use the premises in any manner that interferes with the neighbors' rights to quiet and enjoyment of their property.
- Keep us and/or other guests up all night. Please be considerate.
In any case of improper use of the premises, the guest and any other occupants may be required to vacate the premises and forfeit the reservation charge.
The property will be inspected, cleaned and sanitized after each guest's departure so that the guest can enjoy his or her vacation up to the last moment. Guest agrees to leave the property in the same general condition it was received.
The entrance is on Shafter Ave. You are welcome to park on the street in front of the dome or in our driveway. Please make sure that you CLOSE the GATE behind you. Please lock the gate and front door when you leave. There is a doorbell on the gate, but you are welcome to just come upstairs to the dome and knock on the door.
Please let us know your estimated time of arrival or call shortly before arriving.
If you need anything, ask. We will always try to accommodate your needs to the best of our abilities.
I enjoy reading and have a huge library of books at the dome. I also enjoy gardening, cleaning, dancing, cooking, and making art.
I am starting a traveling journal project and will be passing them out to guests who are interested in participating. You can pick a random page to write your thoughts or create some art in, if you wish to remain anonymous. Otherwise, you can leave your name, business, and/or contact information for others to see. When the journals are mailed back, I will be selecting from the journal pages and framing many of them to hang on the walls of the dome house. All pages will be published online and will be available for purchase on or a similar website.
I enjoy meeting new people and hearing stories of their life's experiences.
I'm always happy to share my info or email address with guests or hosts that want to stay in touch.
I keep the house clean and enjoy hosting AirBnB guests more than anything in the world. I mostly keep to myself, but do enjoy a good conversation with guests. You will always have your space during your stay.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I'm extremely quick to respond, so you won't be waiting long for a reply.
