JUST SO YOU KNOW...the majority of money gained through your stay at my place will go towards food and educational tuition costs for 6-8 students who live in Haiti. My sister and her family, who live in Haiti, runs an organization called UCI Haiti.

And thank you for your consideration in staying at my place!

PARKING: There is a lot of street side parking around our neighborhood.
Parking on the street in front of our house is generally the best idea to keep the neighbors happy.

PETS: We have 1 indoor/outdoor cat (Ember-a gray Blue Russian breed cat). We do not feed the cat "people food" and he NEVER enter the apartments. He will probably will leave you alone, but you never know with cats...
The host family is allergic to dogs and therefore cannot accept dog requests.

STEPS: One must be able to climb 2 steps to get to the inside doorway entrance to the Studio Apt.

SELF CHECK-IN: Our check in time is 4:00PM. Due to intensive deep cleaning efforts, we need to have adequate time to prepare your stay with us so please allow us the time to get everything ready for you.
CHECK-OUT: Our check out time is 11:00AM. If you need to check out later, note prior permission must be granted and an hourly rate of $40/hour is required. Apartment should be cleaned, tidied up and left in the same condition as when you arrived to honor our very low cleaning fees that we pass on to you.

VISITORS? Visitors allowed with permission only, and are not currently allowed on the property due to covid 19 health risks. We are renting space in our home with you, our registered guest, whom we have checked out via your verifications and reviews. If you made a reservation for more than yourself, you have told me who that is, and we have agreed. All visitors depart at 10pm. If a visitor is on the property after 10pm, they will be charged $100 per person.

NOISE POTENTIAL: While our neighborhood is low-traffic, there is always a potential for some sounds like cars driving by, sirens, or aircraft, dogs barking, etc. since this is a city.

PLUMBING: This home has sensitive plumbing! Do not flush ANYTHING but toilet paper down toilet. Use the provided trash/recycling cans for everything else. There are mesh strainers located in the kitchen sinks. Please tap out all food scraps and debris into the trash cans. Make sure to "can and cool" all grease into a separate container. No grease, oil, gravy, soups, condiments or grit should go down the drains. Trash it ALL!

HOME SAFETY: Please remember to lock all windows and doors, whenever you depart. Please do not light any candles, burn incense, or use other types of flammable materials. Unplug all space heaters when leaving the apt. In case of emergency, smoke detectors and fire extinguishers are provided in your accommodations, located in the Kitchen Storage Pantry.


HOUSE RULES
GOLDEN RULE: “Treat others as you would have them treat you.”
Respect the home environment, the neighbors, and the neighborhood.
CODE WORD is RESPECT.
If you are unsure if it is OK, ask.

No smoking/vaping inside or outside the property. Absolutely no ‘smells’ of any kind. (If you have butts from smoking while walking around the block, please dispose of them in the OUTSIDE TRASH containers located in front of the house under the big tree.)
Not suitable for pets or children under 12 years old.
No parties or events, more than two visitors should ask for permission first.
No drugs of any kind
This is a DRAMA FREE environment! No shouting! No slamming doors! No hitting! Etc!
No illegal downloads or immoral activity to be used on our internet space.
No firearms, fireworks or candles. None. And for goodness sake, shut off the space heaters when you leave the apt. I do not want my house burned down!

DAMAGES: Please be mindful of keeping outside dirt outside. We do not wear shoes inside our house. If stains (wine, lubricants, shoe polish, blood, suntan lotion, essential oils, makeup, acne medicine, sharpie, etc.) are present on linens, bedding, pillows, furniture, rugs, etc. Guests will be charged for excessive cleaning, dry cleaning, stain removal or replacement of damaged item(s). A $300 charge would apply in case of lost key or damage to the home or replacement value of lost or broken items.

SHHHHHH…QUIET HOURS are from 10 pm – 6 am. This includes computer, music, phone call volume, etc. You don’t have to turn it off, just keep the volume low low. All visitors should have departed by 10pm (after they are allowed back on the property due to covid health risks).

FOR CHECK OUT, make sure to leave everything in its intended place such as towels hung on the towel racks, bedding on the bed, trash in the trash can, DISHES WASHED and STORED. Apartment should be cleaned, tidied up and left in the same condition as when you arrived. All consumables such as dish soap, shampoo, conditioner etc. should be left in the apt for refilling. If you have taken it out or moved it, put it back where you found it. This expectation is to be honored due to the very low cleaning fees we have passed on to you.

Guest booking space on our property assume all legal liabilities associated with the injury or loss of property of any minor or adult in their group, while on host property. Loss of property or theft is responsibility of the guest.

House Rules are a contract stating you understand expectations. Breaking contract means you broke your word, and consequences include: If you broke it, I’ll ask you to fix it, and/or IMMEDIATELY being asked to leave this property without refund. Wouldn’t that be a bummer for both of us.

Basically, there may be so many other behaviors and situations where it had not even occurred to me to mention. Can we just all agree that Guests will act like mature responsible adults, putting their most positive, best foot forward, demonstrating their highest self, please. Wouldn’t to be grand if, out of deep mutual respect for all, we just sat back, relaxed, and enjoyed our stay together. :) Yay!

Zugang für Gäste
All common sense stuff but due to insurance reasons I need to mention it...Guest can use all outside areas EXCEPT: the driveway as host needs to charge electric cars, the north side of the house as there is weight lifting equipment or any sports equipment left outside as that is my children's and NOT for guest use. Gas fireplace, Wood/Gas Grill and fire pit and chimney chimenea may not be used unless prior granted permission from host. All storage sheds, garden boxes, tools and supplies/compost containers/landscaping bins/5 gallon buckets, ladders, and steel wagon are NOT for guest use. If you would like to sample some food from the garden, ask permission first, as we love to share and can better tell you what is ripe and ready to be harvested.

Weitere wichtige Hinweise
Late checkout fee (anytime after 11am) is $40.00 per hour. We need time to thoroughly clean the listing before the next guest, just as we had thoroughly cleaned your place for you.

$100 unauthorized guest fee. You MUST register for the correct number of guests, and all visitors will leave the property by 10pm sharp or be charged this fee. I aim to keep all my guests safe and accounted for, in all my listings on this property.

$300 fee for cleaning a listing that had been used for smoking, or vaping or any other activities that leaves "smells". This is to protect my property from smoke damages, and in consideration for the next guest who stays here. As you would want you next homestay to be fresh and clean upon check in, as well.

No outside appliances may be plugged in, due to possible fire hazard and home insurance reasons.

Furniture is not to be moved or removed from the listing interior.

Guest family is allergic to dogs and will not be able to accept pets.

California has varied ecosystems with lots of nature. Many bugs are important to our gardens, chaparral, forest and beach ecosystems. We use natural bug/pest control and we all do different things to keep praying mantis and other important pollinators in the garden (think about it this way, if you didn’t have a spider, you’d have issue with the mosquitos.) However, rain or cold weather forces critters to seek shelter. So please note we do not offer refunds for a bugs, mosquitos, lizard, ants or spider (etc) sightings inside. If this makes you uncomfortable, our place may not be for the spot for you. Best advice is keep the doors and windows closed. Thanks for understanding and knowing bugs are part of growing food and of nature. We love our beach, forest chaparral and garden nature and hope you will too during your stay in San Jose. Enjoy!

I love traveling. I feel the best part of traveling is to meet people from different cultures. I thought becoming the host on Airbnb would provide us a great opportunity to meet people from all over the world at the same time to have pleasure to be able to provide nice clean and safe places to start the day for my guests. I treasure wonderful experiences from my past vacations and memories of people who I met on my trips. It would be my pleasure to be able to extend hospitality to Air BnB guests.
