Other things to note
Let's keep it wholesome. This house is located in a residential area and is best suited for quiet respectful enjoyment. NO pets, NO parties or NO drug use is allowed- really none.
House Rules: Be quite when coming in at night not to disturb neighbors. No smoking inside of the home. Leave the home as you found it except for cleaning, linens and towels will be washed by house keeping at the end of your stay.
Welcome to our cottage. We want you to be comfortable with your stay. We have found that we need to leave a list of rules as some guests in the past have needed a little reminder of how to care for the home. There are some fragile antiques and items in the house. Please use the house gently and handle the furniture and items in the house with care.
Children and Babies.
1- There are items in the house including toys that are not safe for babies. There are outlets, under the sink products and lamps that can be pulled down. The back yard is not flat. It is fully gated but the gates are not self closing and the deck had a big step. Please watch your children closely.
2- There is a pack-n-play in closet and small sheets for it. There are also other baby items that you may use including blankets and bibs. House keeping will not know if any of these items has been used. If you use any of these please wash in hot water and put away as you found it. There are instructions on the package and Youtube has a video on how to assemble it if needed.
3- There are two air mattresses. Best to be used for children. They need to be refilled every day. They do not leak and are not old, they just do not have a “auto filler”. It is also a good idea to put an air mattress. Next to a bed a child is sleeping in case they roll over onto the floor. Please make sure the kids do not jump on them. It is very temping for them to do so. If used please put back as found at the end of the trip.
4- BUNK BEDS: Please have no one younger than 6 years of age on the top bunk of the bunk beds. It is also a good idea to put an air mattress on the floor next to the bunk bed for extra safety.

I hope that our homes speak to kids and the kid inside of all us. You can find me at almost any yard sale or antique shop looking for something old, new, cool, Disney or different to share in our cottage’s with our guests. I am a Realtor and I am tired of all of the houses looking the same. I try to keep as many original features as long as possible in our older homes. I find the oddness of the original molding charming in a quirky artsy way and hope our guests enjoy our house as a different and special place to stay. If you are looking for the typical or perfection that is not my style. We have a lot of fun and exciting improvements planned for our homes and gardens to add to the experience.
I LOVE Fullerton's Historical District and find it to be the best Central Southern California location for visitors to enjoy many beautiful local historical places, good restaurants, wine bars, shopping and colleges, while not too far from many tourist locations in Southern California like Disneyland (one town over down Harbor Blvd), Knott's Berry Farm, LA, Beaches, and so much more.
We very fortunate to live in this gorgeous area where the weather is great most of the time. We spend our free time at Disney, local theater and the beach. Being a host comes natural to me. It is a pleasure to see guests enjoy our homes. Let me know how I may help make your stay a memorable vacation.
