West Side house description

Admire the city, hillside and organic garden views. 1,800 square foot home and off street parking for maximum of four cars.

Beach 1.4 miles: closest beaches are Leadbetter Beach and Arroyo Burro / Hendry's Beach. Leadbetter is less than a half hour walk along a scenic drive.

Downtown State Street 1.2 miles, walk there via Ortega Street pedestrian bridge in less than 30 minutes.

This house includes three bedrooms:
1. Master Suite upstairs with two queen beds is almost 400 square feet and is the entire second floor, meaning no shared walls. With windows on three sides and mountain, city and garden views it feels like your own private tree house. Bathroom for this room features separate shower and tub with custom tiles. 2. The larger downstairs room has a queen bed, a single 'roll-away bed' and a separate private entry through the front yard. 3. The smaller downstairs bedroom has a double bed. Second and third bathrooms downstairs are in a historic part of the house and feature a full Jack and Jill bathroom with shower/tub between the two rooms.

The living room has a day bed with a single mattress. There is also a trundle bed under the day bed also with a thinner single sized mattress.

Extra childrens' beds are available to add upstairs or in the larger downstairs room: toddler mattress and two different kinds of cribs available.

There is an additional half bath downstairs decorated with custom star shaped tiles.

Important: this is a healthy, relaxing, comfortable place to stay and rest, and not a place to party. This home is not available for 'parties'. Our quiet hours begin at 9 PM, there is no grill, we have neighbors close-by sensitive to noise, and no more than a total of ten (10) people, including visitors throughout the weekend are included in a reservation for this home. Also, no more than a total of four (4) cars, no more than two of which can be larger than compact to mid-size, total throughout the weekend may come to the house as part of your reservation to minimize disturbance to our neighbors. We require the names of everyone on your reservation, their IDs at check in and the license plate number of each car. We are next door to this residence, so we are aware of visitors and quiet hours. The reservation only includes trash generation at a rate of one kitchen size bag of trash each day. The front yard cannot be decorated during your stay and we ask that you close all blinds at night time for privacy.

Some of the eco-friendly and healthy features of this B&B:

+Flooring is maple wood in the bedrooms. Tile in the living room and kitchen. No carpet in this home.
+ All showers have chlorine filters.
+Organic sheets and towels
+Non-toxic cleaning supplies
+No carpets here, all clean wood and tile floors and we are a no-shoes-worn-inside household
+Filtered water provided (usually is distilled re-mineralized water from glass dispensers)
+House plants
+Organic garden
+Bus stop three blocks away & can walk downtown or to beach in 30 minutes

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About: I lived at the property 2009 - 2011 and the property has been primarily rented out through another site. This VRBO listing became active in December 2013. Management of this property is carried out by my business partner, Kat, so the correspondence you will receive is from her.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This is a unique location because it is both very close to downtown and on a quiet street that feels close to nature. It's also special that the property both has a portion with historic charm, and newer portions with custom details such as tiles and stained glass as well as modern amenities such as heated floors.
