The space

A detached apartment on our property, the apartment includes a full bathroom with shower, one bedroom with a queen size bed and hanging space for clothes, a main living room, a kitchen area with microwave, small refrigerator, sink, single serve coffee maker, and full access to a shared outdoor Moroccan-themed lounge and relaxing backyard with 2-person hot tub! There is no stove or oven located in the unit. There is a convection oven located in the outdoor lounge area if you need it. Separate entrance is located around the back (to the left of the home when looking at it) with a keyless pin pad to get through the gate.

Guest access

Guests have private access to their entire detached apartment unit and shared access to outdoor spaces in the backyard, including shared access to the 2-person hot tub, lounge, and garden areas.

Interaction with guests

We may or may not see you when you arrive as you have your own private entrance. We share the yard which includes the outdoor lounging area, and hot tub. If you prefer alone time in those spaces, please let us know that. On the flipside, if you'd like to meet us, we are happy to meet you and would welcome contact from you. Please don't hesitate to message us for anything during your stay!

Other things to note

The apartment combines a mix of old and new. There is a window AC unit, fans, as well as 2 space heaters to provide comfort in the seasons. Please be energy and water conscious.

We offer free coffee, tea, hot cider and hot chocolate along with occasional snacks or in season fruit located in the the apartment. Please don't overfill the coffee maker. There is Brita filtered water located inside the mini fridge. There is no stove or oven (just a kitchenette). There is a convection oven located in the outdoor kitchen if you need it, (it may be dusty is all). The unit does not have a TV.

Our unit is kid-friendly but not entirely kid-proof. We can provide a Pack 'n Play upon request, and there are some outdoor and indoor toys provided as well as child-friendly dishware.

If you would like to use the hot tub, please provide us with 24 hours notice. It is generally balanced and hot, but some seasons like summer we turn the heat off. In the fall/spring/winter, it's typically ready to go. In unforseable circumstances, it is occasionally in need of service and not available. We will let you know if that is the case.
It is on an evening timer for heat, so if you plan to use it in the morning, just give us a heads up or it might not be to your liking.

Please be respectful, kind, and pick up after yourself. We recycle. You are welcome to hand wash dishes or leave them for cleaning.

Please be considerate of smoking as we have asthma and live on the property. Outside only and not near open windows or doors. Please dispose of your cigarettes in the outside garbages in the driveway or outdoor kitchen when you're done. You will be charged an additional cleaning fee if there is the smell of smoke left in the apartment.

Please do not use oil on the bedding/sheets as it is difficult to remove.

We are energy and water conscious. Please use the heat/AC sparingly. Please turn off heater and AC when not in use or when you leave. The hot water is run on a recirculating pump, so it should be hot very quickly and you don't have to wait for it to warm up.

Please limit noise after 10pm, especially when using the hot tub. No parties, please. This is our home.
The hot tub is for two people at a time only. Please be clean before using so we can limit chemical usage.

Please be conscious of where you park- driveways in older neighborhoods are very small. Please do not park in front of our neighbors driveways. Please also note there is not a full kitchen- no stove or oven, but there is a convection oven in the patio for use.

After you arrive, please keep the back gate locked. Thanks!

Amenity limitations - The hot tub is on the older side and every now and again stops heating properly. If you discover this before we do, please let us know!

Brianas place was a great find and so perfect for our night. Its close to some great food and entertainment and very close to the freeway for easy arrival and departure. They have such a sweet little backyard and a super cozy two person hot tub. We slipped in and out with ease and communication was prompt and clear. The only challenge we had was some well intended scents in the house. Me and my partner are sensitive to strong smells, even good ones, and it was a bit too much for us and we had to take the scent sticks outside and open up the house to settle down for sleep. Other than that a super great place to stay and I imagine this doesn’t bother many people otherwise our hosts would have changed fed it by now because they are clearly good hosts.

Response from Briana:
I'm so glad you enjoyed, thanks for staying with us! I completely understand about the smell. We had, unfortunately, used a cleaning product I hadn't known would leave such a strong smell in the place and have been trying to air the place out. I am also sensitive to smells so I am so apologetic for the inconvenience! I'm hoping it's worn off by now. :-)

Briana's place was perfect for the independent traveler. I checked in early and left early and had no problems. Coffee, hot chocolate, and cider were a great touch and everything was taken care of!
