Built in 1904 the home has been lovingly restored yet retains much of it's original character. Sip your coffee on the front porch swing & enjoy your wine in the private back yard oasis with lounge area, gas fire pit, bistro lights & goldfish pond. Amazon Echo will play your favorite music as you enjoy the warm Morgan Hill nights.
Please help yourself to the common areas on the first floor including the front porch swing, living room, gas fireplace, dining room, kitchen, bathroom, washer & dryer (in the bathroom) and the brick paved backyard with outdoor dining, goldfish pond, lounge space & gas fire pit.
Off Limit Areas:
The small room across from the kitchen is my personal office/painting studio. I will keep the door closed but feel free to peek in if you are curious. Please keep an eye on small children as there are paints and solvents that would be harmful to children.
As this listing is for our downstairs guest room, we kindly ask guests booking this room to remain downstairs only. Upstairs is our master bedroom, Alex's home office, and our additional AirBnB guest room. If you're staying with more than 2 guests, please see our other listing!
As we are undergoing a remodel we kindly ask you not to enter the back cottage or storage area behind the cottage. Thank you so much!
Interaction with guests
You may not see me much as I have a long commute, but I handle all online communications. My fiancé Alex will likely be available to greet you at check in, if not we will provide self check in instructions. We are happy to help with recommendations you may need & don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions!
Other things to note
Our tandem driveway is available as a loading zone only, there is usually plenty of street parking & also a free public lot on the corner of 5th & Depot Street (end of block).
Please note we have 2 dogs, Lady & Otis. We recommend keeping guest doors closed if you don't want a furry visitor in your room. They love helping us host!
Locks & Keys:
A $100 lost key fee will apply for any unreturned keys. This covers time & expenses in replacing locks, so please don't lose them!
Smart Home Enabled:
We love the historical integrity of our home, but have some modern conveniences installed. Our voice activated Amazon Echo named "Alexa" is in the living room, kitchen & bathroom. She can turn on the lights, TV, play music and the radio, (radio in the shower too), and answer general questions. We will be happy to give you a demo upon arrival.
Please help yourself to the living room, board games, books, and gas fireplace. We do not have cable TV, but have Amazon Fire TV. You can stream Amazon prime and Netflix content but no cable channels are available. If you are unfamiliar with streaming TV, we will be happy to run through it with you.
- Check-ins prior to 3pm need to be approved by host in advance (hopefully we can accommodate)

Thank you for stopping by our about page. Alex and I are a couple of 30-something creative professionals that work from home and love traveling and hosting on airbnb!
We love enjoying the weekends with our 2 fur babies around town as we can walk everywhere! We especially love the farmers market open year round on Saturdays, grabbing a craft brew at The Running Shop and Hops, and dining out at our favorite spots like Odeum & Trail Dust BBQ all just a short walk away.
As hosts Alex and I want you to know we will never deny a guest based on race, age, gender, religion or sexual orientation. We hope you will find us to be considerate and friendly people, and open our home to the same. Thanks again for stopping by!
