Our house is walking distance to the beach, shops, and restaurants; a 30 minute drive to San Francisco, and surrounded by incredible coastline. We have bikes, toys, books, climbing structure, trampoline, ping pong, pets and more for the kids.
I will be gone many weeks Monday - Friday so I will need to transition guests on weekends most weeks. Please see the section 'other things to note' for detailed info on what my ideal time periods would be for folks to rent the house for.
Our house is perfect for kids since we have toys, books, climbing structure, trampoline, etc in a gated safe backyard. We have a piano if you like to play. This is our home.
Animal lovers a must, we have rabbits and a cat. Someone else can feed them if you want but you must be comfortable with them, it is there home too!
We have room for multiple cars in the driveway.
Disponible para huéspedes
Our home is your home. You may use our bikes, scooters, and other toys.
The only thing we ask you do not use are our surfboards. (If I am home I will likely let you borrow some good beginner boards if you want to have a go. We actually have a surf camp part of the summer and teach surfing)

We are renting the house while my family is in Germany and while I am doing summer camps. This means I will be gone Monday - Friday most weeks and will give preference to people renting Sunday through Sat for these weeks so I can be home to transition the house between guests.
These are the time frames I would prefer to rent the house for (if these times don't work perfectly let us know and we can see what we can work out:
June 22, 23, or 24 through June 30 or July 1
July 2 - July 8
July 9 - July 15
July 16 - July 22
July 23 - July 25
July 26 - August 1
The main thing to note is that we have pets. We have three rabbits, a cat, and two guinea pigs. The guinea pigs may or may not be here as they might live elsewhere for the summer. I will take care of the animals or have someone else do it (likely my Mother) while you are here, unless you would prefer to feed them yourself.
One of the kids room has a bunny that is not super comfortable with strangers. We have had small kids who were afraid of this bunny. If you think your child would be frightened of the bunny you can move the mattress into either of the other bedrooms (for instance two kids could share the other kids bedroom).
We have a BBQ and a brand new induction range - enjoy! We also have wifi.
Our house is used by kids and animals and is an older house. We will have professional cleaners clean it but just know it is not immaculate. I mention this because the only negative comment we have received from guests has to do with cleanliness. We were surprised by this, but if you are comparing to a hotel or a super immaculate house, our house would certainly be less clean.
No smoking please! Please be careful with our belongings. No pets of your own please. We prefer shoes off in the house but while you are here you can decide for yourselves what you prefer.
No parties or noise outside the house after dark. Please be respectful to our neighbors.
This depends when you are here. We are offering our house while my wife and kids are in Germany. I will be here some of the time - mostly on weekends. We have an Airstream Trailer next to the house where I will stay. When I am not here, my Mother will be around - she lives a block away. She will come over to feed the animals (unless you would prefer to do it yourself)
I look forward to telling you our favorite places to eat, escape down the coast, etc.
I am a middle school science teacher, my wife a PE teacher, and our two boys are 11 and 6 years old. My wife is German and our boys speak German at home and Spanish in school. We are outdoor enthusiasts, surfing being our main passion. We love good food, camping, traveling, and sharing our local coastline with fellow travelers. I have lived and traveled in over 30 countries and met my wife surfing in Mexico. We have two bunnies, a cat, and two guinea pigs.
