Other things to note
Wanting to be closer to their family after retiring, our grandparents bought this home when it was built in 1978 and passed it down to our mom, who in turn passed it on to us to enjoy as a getaway from the Arizona heat. We have many friends in Arizona who stay in hotels in California when they visit. We think that's a shame, so we wanted to open the doors to those seeking something different. We're betting that guests like you want an upscale, more private place where you could cook or grille together with friends and family, or sit around the fire under the glow of the string lights. And we tried to keep it reasonably priced to encourage you to stay longer and get to know the area. We want you to have all the amenities and comforts of home -- to use the townhouse as a 'forward operating base' of relaxation. To that end, we created a space, almost from scratch, where we would want to stay -- because we stay here, too. In short, this is our home away from home, and we would be honored if you made it yours.
A few things we love about it:
1. Comfort. This place is built for relaxation and fun. From the Sleep Number beds to the 'reclining living room,' we wanted this to be an upscale crash pad with an unparalleled depth of comfort and a unique feel.
2. The back yard. A cold drink, a warm fire, and a hot grill; 'nuff said.
3. Central air-conditioning. It can get pretty hot (and humid!) in California, and while many California vacation homes make do on 93-degree days with ceiling fans and open windows, our coastal getaway keeps you cool.
4. How about a soak? When your feet are killing you from a marathon Disneyland adventure, come back and sink into the deep Kohler soaking tub. (Notice how the wine glass fits perfectly into that niche? It was built that way, with your aching bones and need for relaxation in mind.)
There are only four rules: 1. Please respect our home. Our family stays there much of the year, and we want all of our guests to enjoy it as much as we do. 2. Respect the neighbors; they are our friends, and we love them. 3. Please never smoke inside the home. In the garage just off the back yard, you'll find cigar-size ashtrays for outside (and a small humidor inside, too). 4. Most important: Relax and have a great stay!
