Steven’s review is both flattering and somewhat misrepresentative. Here is some clarification. He points out several details already mentioned in our listing which should not have been surprises to him - the antique bed is advertised as a double, not a queen; the suite is advertised as “sunny”, which we think is part of the charm; and the bathroom, though for the private use of guests, is on the opposite side of the kitchen from the suite (as advertised). Steven asked before booking if he could bring his own blackout curtains, I believe due to the unusual hours he keeps (it’s not sunny at night). We obliged. The suite is part of a two-story single family house (not a duplex or an apartment; our main living space is downstairs). Our small dog feels most comfortable at arm's length when getting to know you. She most certainly makes daily visits to our neighborhood dog park, accompanies my son and me on excursions around town, and takes long hikes with me a couple times during the week. When we are home, we may keep the backdoor open to our enclosed backyard so she can come and go as she pleases. We also try to contain her to our front yard and downstairs so she is not constantly present to guests. We are very busy people. During Steven’s summer stay we were camping (with dog!), husband on a job, son at a day camp for a chunk of the day, or we were at the pool in the afternoon. When not summer, we are busy with full-time work (teacher and builder) and school (2nd grade) and after school activities. The mosquito situation is what is to be expected for a temperate summer in northern CA, not the tropics.
