This was a disappointing experience from the moment we arrived....entering through a shabby dead garden into house that had no feeling or function for a visitor. We booked for three guests however there was no sleeping prepared for the third. The house manager Kate told us the …

Response from Helaine:
We are in a serious drought in California and all garden irrigation is mandated to be shut off. Thus the raised vegetable beds are fallow. Also, it was alerted in the listing that the guest request the folding bed for third guest at the time of booking, which was not requested. Also, there are 4 bed pillows, which is enough for three guest, plus additional sheets and a duvet for the third guest. (Many guests have preferred the sofa to folding bed as it is super comfy.) There has never been an issue with hot water, so not sure what that was about! Maybe trying to fill up for 3 baths in a row is a bit much...3 showers is no problem! The photos clearly depict the interior of the house - and previous guests have raved about the decor. Also, there is a freestanding clothes rack in the bedroom with plenty of hangers and not sure how much hanging space this guest required for just one night. The kitty litter is at the end of the hall behind a curtain, not just outside the bedroom and had also been freshly changed prior to guests arriving. In addition, it is only there as a backup, as kitties are outside kitties!!! This guest did not strip the bed as asked...and kept house manager waiting for 40 minutes, to check in.

Good location, the garden was lovely to sit in. Really more of a place for one couple, unless you want to bring an air mattress. We enjoyed our stay and Helaine was an excellent host.

An awesome place, but with a consideration: The cats use the bedroom window being rented to enter and leave the house. Naturally when ones closes the bedroom door or window or door, the cats are going to scratch to get through their standard pathway. After the second time of…

The cats seem to have taken an interest in Dan and Agata, normally they stay outside on their own!
