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).

I came with expectations from other reviews but our stay here was even better than my expectations!! Cute details throughout the house, fireplace indoor and out, and Alexa to turn on music, lights, and tv made everything so easy!! And of course Alex and Amber were so sweet! Can't recommend enough if you are in the area!

They understand my love for sparkling water and a bottle for each night of my stay! Alex and Amber are genuine people with a caring heart. Thanks!

Alex and Amber were perfect hosts. I was in the area for a memorial service, a less than perfect circumstances. They were understanding, flexible with my check in time, and compassionate for my circumstances. I had a long drive up for the memorial service and a long drive home the next day. As you can imagine, finding a place of comfort in the middle of it all was of prime importance. Their house is incredible. The bed sheets were so comfortable. I love the spa water with cucumber mint flavor. They arranged for air conditioning in my room on a hot night. The pictures don't do it justice because it's just that cute. The sitting areas outside, the living room, the downstairs bedroom where I stayed, the bathroom… All were perfect. The house is right next to a play house, and walking distance from the quaint small town restaurants on the main strip. Parking was easy and plentiful on the street. And their kindness and hospitality along with their friendly fur babies won't be forgotten. I'd love to stay with them again in the future.

Amber and Alex's home was such a wonderful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the peninsula! The house is only a short walk from Morgan Hill's scenic downtown with plenty of dining options nearby. We ate at Ladera Grill, which was amazing. Both Amber and Alex were wonderful hosts, showing us around the house, demoing the Amazon Echo, and recommending places to visit in town. Definitely recommend this airbnb!!!

Hello!

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!
