About the property

Perfect For Visiting Professors, Business Travelers, Home Buyers Looking + More

My central Redlands home is available several months per year while I am travelling and your hosts are two superb property managers, Alex and Brent. Walking distance to downtown, ESRI and minutes from key hospitals and the U of R. Perfect for 1-3 and for longer term stays. Myself--I will be living abroad much of the year and always check the calendar, but as of this update, it is again available starting March 15, 2019.

Note: there is an unfinished deck in the back that is scheduled to be completed in October when I am back in town. I apologize for any inconvenience.

I am a local artist, known as GretchenArt, living around the world at homeaway and other sharing economy locations. My 2 bedroom 2 bath home in Redlands, California is set up with a master bedroom/bath with a queen bed plus a den/office/second bedroom with custom extra comfortable LazyBoy double sofabed and desk/Internet. There is a second desk/office in the living room. The home is fully furnished and in the perfect central Redlands location on a quiet street-- walking distance to the University and downtown, convenient to the freeways, very close to both Redlands Community, Kaiser Permanente and Loma Linda University hospitals, and a block from ESRI, etc. This will be perfect for one or two people who are visiting friends or relatives, traveling or working as a travel nurse/doctor, professor, ESRI, in town for special events or treatments, or looking for a more permanent home to buy in the area... and my home is available primarily longer term where I prefer minimum one month to six months.

Note there is no garage parking, but parking in the driveway and on the street. The garage is available as a laundry room and would fit a motorcycle.

About Gretchen

Local "Paint the Town Redlands" artist, I returned to Redlands in 2014 and purchased this cozy home then. I am living around the world at sharing economy homes in the summertime and wintertime and spend the spring/fall in the Redlands area.

Gretchen purchased this house in 2014

Why Gretchen chose South Redlands

Redlands is a very family and arts and culture friendly town, somewhat conservative and with a thriving art association, local theatre, plenty of history, and still great oranges and lots of good restaurants. My mother lived in town for 30+ years and I first bought a home here in 2000. I returned from living in Texas and abroad to purchase this property as my second home, with my first home being the world.

What makes this house unique

I have hosted several guests who are visiting professors, people needing longer term medical treatment at nearby Redlands or Loma Linda hospitals, students doing summer internships at Amazon and elsewhere, etc. It is furnished with everything needed for a busy couple, executive, retiree or student, with 2 offices and full furnishings.

This was a great spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed here for a month while visiting family in Redlands. Gretchen’s place was cool, easy and comfortable. It had everything we needed. The front yard is shaded, which was so nice in July. The house isn’t fancy, but cute, filled with Gretchen’s art and we felt right at home! We will definitely consider staying again, as this place was a rare find, safe, close to town and affordable... a great value! Thank you so much Gretchen!
