Interaction with guests
The parking is in our personal driveway which is adjacent to our home. You will walk past our house and garage to a long private path to your apartment in the back corner of the property. Sometimes we'll be playing basketball in the driveway.
There is a lovely butterfly and herb garden exclusively for our guests with a private patio and dining area.
We have 2 cats, 4 chickens and honey bees on the property. The cats are not allowed in the apartment, but may visit the private patio. They’re very friendly, but don’t be afraid to shoo them away either!
You may hear our children playing in the backyard.
Other things to note
We recently purchased our home on our favorite street in Davis. We have been working since August to renovate it and bring it back to life. We’ve come a long way. The cottage is finally done and we're thrilled to be hosting with airbnb. Our garden is the next step and will be a mix of the old and new. We plan to have a veggie garden soon.
Check-in is somewhat flexible. Let us know when you would like to check-in and we will do our best to accommodate the request.

We both grew up in San Francisco and met through a mutual friend. We had our first date a few years later and have been together ever since. 6 years ago we decided to move to a smaller town with a slower pace. We landed in Davis in 2011 and we love it! We walk and bike everywhere and we have met so many wonderful people from all over the world!
We love to cook, garden, play music and travel. We have loved using Airbnb during our travels so we are very excited to share our studio apartment as hosts!
We have 3 great kids. Our eldest daughter is attending UC Davis and lives with friends a few blocks away. Our 12 year old daughter is in middle school and our 10 year old son is in elementary school.
We’ve used Airbnb as travelers quite a bit over the past several years and are now becoming hosts. Whether traveling or hosting we look forward to meeting you!
