We had a great time staying in Michelle's lovely house. The living area is spacious and comfortable with easy access to the garden area from two sides. We stayed in November so a sunny spot near the pergola was perfect for a rest between hikes. In hotter weather the covered pergola and lots of shade are also available. The barbecue and well equipped kitchen were perfect for eating so with Whole Foods just across the main road and Safeway a few minutes drive we weren't tempted to eat out although there are lots of places to do so. The master bedroom is very large and the bed comfortable and the neighborhood was very quiet during our stay. Michelle's trail guide was a great supplement to the information we had found before arriving and she kindly provided a parking pass which we used several times (doesn't get you any priority to spots though so arrive early or plan to park down the road from the trailhead and walk). The house is central and very close to numerous trail heads and we thoroughly enjoyed being able to hike in the morning, come back to the house for lunch and perhaps a nap in the aforementioned sunshine and head out again in the afternoon. The decor is as pictured in the listing and cosy and in character for the area and we discovered that you can easily plug a phone or ipad into the small amplified speakers in the front hallway to listen to our choice of music in the evening. As noted there is no cable service which we didn't miss at all and actually didn't use at any of the other places we stayed during our trip. The supplied Wifi worked fine for mail, maps, airline check-in etc. We very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend both the area and this particular property to anyone looking to take advantage of hiking and spectacular scenery.
