Children and pet friendly!! The yard is as big as a park! The lawn alone is as big as a football field. The place is stocked with all sports equipment for fun - Footballs, soccer balls, wiffle ball, Zarts, Bocce Ball, the equipment is there! Plan you family competition!
DOGS: The huge yard is mainly fenced, so off leash play is fun, but the yard is so big and there are escape routes, so to contain your dog, the deck of your place is great since it has latched gates on each end to keep your dog contained if you are not able to supervise in the yard. You wouldn't want your dog to run loose in the neighborhood if your dog escaped the yard. There is a chain link kennel under your deck in the shade if you want your doggie to relax while you go sightseeing. Please clean up after your dogs.
The property sits on a secluded oak tree setting, with hillside views, enormous yard that feels like a park.

There is a zipline for kids (200 lb limit), tree swings, ropes to climb, hammock, tetherball, and a Tarzan rope hanging amongst the oak trees for swinging.
There is a historic rose garden with 33 specimen roses of varieties no longer being bred, saved from a horticultural society closing down. Cut away and bring these colorful and scented beauties inside for your stay! There are beautiful walkways, staircases cascading into the gardens for you to meander around and enjoy the serene natural beauty. Fruit trees galore! Navel orange, tangerine, lemon, avocado, apricot, plum, loquat, kumquat and more. Pick away organic tree ripened fruit if your stay happens to fall during their showcase of nature's bounty!
