We were looking for a place to crash the night for a last minute trip to Yosemite on a Sunday. Marta & Arnold's place was perfect for our family of 5. They were very responsive to all our messages & the room we stayed in was clean and comfortable.

Marta & Arnold were very nice with us, and recommended places to see in our trip to the national parks nearby.

Marta and Arnold are very welcoming and helpful! We had a very good rest after Yosemite. The room is not very big but has everything, just as described. Marta also let us do our laundry and use the kitchen, although we didn't cook as it's a bit late. You will enjoy the peaceful staying in the countryside. Thank you for having us:)

Marta & Arnold User ProfileMarta & Arnold is a superhost.

Arnold and Marta have been married 33 years and have 4 adult children. Marta has an MA in Education, worked in the public school system for over 20 years (adult ed. teacher and administrator) and now leads a nonprofit organization. Arnold is a Physician Assistant at works at a local hospital. Both met and lived in Israel in early 1980's and have traveled extensively.

We had our home built in 1993 and have lived here since. We live on 2 acres in a wonderful small country community called Madera Ranchos. We are empty nesters with 4 empty bedrooms. We miss the joy and activity our children brought with their friends, hanging out, watching movies or building a bon fire. We have hosted individuals, groups up to 8 and families and even a few wedding receptions. We have 4 dogs now (2 friendly dachshunds, who would try to sleep with you if they could), and 2 white German Shepherds.

We value Faith, Family, Friends (as it states over one of our doorways).
We love living in our 5 bedroom country home we call Eagles Nest.

WE do offer EXPERIENCES, but Airbnb doesn't have it available to market yet since we are not Los Angeles or SF. But you can check out my new website: I am offering ESL camp for those international students who need a place to stay during the holidays. (I have a MA in education with the emphasis of teaching ESL). I also have a few other experiences too much to write here.
