Overview
Clean, quiet, mellow home in Simi. 3 dogs & 2 cats, so you MUST BE PET FRIENDLY. Please read the entire description before inquiring or requesting to book. If you decide to inquire/request, please introduce yourself & tell me why you'll be in town, why you'd like to stay. You could be a guest in my home where I live. I'd like to know something about you.

PLEASE READ BEFORE INQUIRING!
I have a large four-bedroom house and am offering two of the bedrooms for rent to temporary visitors. Rooms have SINGLE OCCUPANCY TWIN BEDS with amazingly comfortable tempurpedic mattresses! Please don't ask to let your friend/partner/mother/father/anyone sleep on the floor for free.

If you have even the SLIGHTEST HESITATION about dogs, this is not the place for you. My dogs are rescues & one was severely abused - she's skittish and will bark and quietly growl in fear. She is in no way dangerous, but if you are afraid or can't ignore/be patient then she will bark & growl more. My other dogs are VERY friendly and want to be petted & loved all the time!

Sorry, NO CHECK IN AFTER 7pm. After check-in, you can come and go on your schedule. I just have to show you how to get in and out using the alarm system. NO STAYS LONGER THAN 14 DAYS.

Everything is freshly painted with new furniture, cable TV, black-out curtains and plenty of privacy. The rooms are practically twins with their fashionable grey-tone paints, but take note of the pictures - "The Wolf" and "The Butterfly" are different rooms with the same amenities. Each room has full access to house amenities listed. All guests share the guest bathroom.

The backyard is a calm, beautiful oasis of green grass and flowers. It also includes a patio with chairs and a BBQ. (And if you're interested, dogs who will run, play, and chase until they collapse in the sun!) I have three dogs and two cats; please DO NOT ask if your dog can come with you no matter how well behaved. The answer is NO. It isn't about your dog, one of mine has PTSD from severe abuse. I won't risk fights due to stress.

Please do not come here to sit in the room all day. There's some reason you came to Simi, so please go do it. My house isn't a day spa and it isn't comfortable having people sit around here all day long. If you have work, go there or go somewhere else to do it. If you came here for vacation or to visit people, please go do that. It is not okay to sit around my home (or in your room) all day long.

Please pre-arrange your check in time with the host. Message Wendy the day before you arrive to pick a mutually convenient time to check in. DO NOT JUST SHOW UP AT THE HOUSE.

Kitchen, shared guest bathroom with bath & shower, cooking supplies, plates & utensils, dish washer, laundry washer & dryer (if you stay 7+ days), 100+ cable tv channels in your room, plus access to full cable & movie channels in family room (priority given to owner, but just ask!)

I'm a quiet, private person. I respect others' privacy and certainly will not enter your room without permission. I'm also friendly and will say hello and goodbye, etc. when we run into one another, and I'm absolutely pleased to have conversations and hang out. If I need alone time, I may just go into my room. If you feel like chatting, please feel free to hang out in the living room with me! I will respect your interaction preferences. We can have meals together, or you can cook separately. It's completely up to you!
My home is NOT a good fit if you plan to stay here all day long. I'm generally here most of the time and it gets awkward if we're both here all the time. Please don't book with me if you plan to work all day at my home.

This neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful except for very mild activity at school drop off and pick up across the street. (You should not hear it from guest bedrooms.) There are no rear neighbors, so we have direct access to Simi's amazing sunsets.
There's s beautiful park just two blocks away, and plenty of neighbors walk the peaceful streets for exercise. We are tucked back from any of Simi's major thoroughfares, but no more than 15 min drive from anywhere in Simi. I can recommend tons of different locally-owned restaurants depending on your food mood, as well as shopping, and fun activities. Just ask! I can also recommend out-of-town places and activities.

Well, this is southern California after all :-) plus it's the suburbs! Meaning you really do need a car.

That said, Amtrak and Metrolink are very close and can get you to LA and other towns swiftly, without traffic! There is bus service within Simi, but it is limited. Click link for bus map and schedule (Website hidden by Airbnb)

We do have Lyft and Uber drivers now, and that is a great cheap way to get around within Simi, but it gets expensive going outside the city.

Feel free to reach out to me ahead of time to ask any specific questions; I'm happy help guide you and make recommendations.

PLEASE PARK ON THE STREET, not in driveway.

MUST BE PET FRIENDLY. I have three loving dogs and two cats as well. One dog is VERY shy, but the other two are super friendly and will want to say hello and be petted. Keep in mind that all dogs bark sometimes. Mine bark especially when you come in, but quiet down when you give them attention and say hello. My shy dog is best when you ignore her.

I do require a check-in time when I am here because a stranger walking in the door without me home may not go well. I need to introduce you to the dogs, show you the house, and show you how to use the alarm. Check in is between 3pm and 7pm unless other arrangements are mutually agreed upon. It usually takes about 15-20 minutes.

Please be open-minded and kind :)

Hello! I'm an open-minded, honest, and direct person. I value others with these qualities. I have a chronic illness with extreme fatigue and pain, so I spend plenty of time at home. I enjoy having visitors and meeting new people, discussing issues with other open-minded people. If you struggle to understand politically liberal perspectives (you do not have to be liberal tho, just respectful) or you think LGBT folks are sick or living in sin, then we would likely not feel comfortable staying in the same home. Thank you for HONESTLY considering these important issues. It will make your stay so much more pleasant....wherever you may stay.

As I mentioned, this is a quiet, mellow home. I'd like it to stay that way. I have a chronic illness and stress can trigger bad flare ups. This also means I need ample sleep, so NO CHECK IN AFTER 7PM. This is because I need to show you how to use the alarm system. After that, you may quietly come and go as you please. PLEASE ARRANGE A CHECK IN TIME‐‐DO NOT JUST SHOW UP AT MY HOUSE! Send me a message the day before you are coming to let me know about what time you plan to arrive so we can pick a time together. My big "rule" is merely to be respectful and kind. Please leave things the way you found them - this isn't a hotel or restaurant with a service to clean up after you. California frequently experiences drought conditions. Therefore, we do conserve water here, and everyone is expected to follow guidelines for helping to keep use down. Similarly, everyone is expected to be mindful not to waste energy. As is stated multiple times in my listing, guests may not spend daytime at the house. Prices are lowered to reflect the limited access. Please be out of the house from at least 10am to 5pm. If you cannot agree to this, please cancel your booking as soon as you can to avoid losing money. If you disregard this rule, I will enforce a $100 fee per infraction. This means that each time you leave after 10am or return before 5pm (without prior written arrangement) you will be charged $100. (I am very sad to have to be strict, but several guests have taken advantage and have cost me considerable money in medical fees. Please just respect the rule or talk to me in advance.) I have asthma and am allergic to cigarette smoke so NO SMOKERS. I'm sorry, even if you smoke outside it stays on your clothes and comes into my house. I also have an allergy to SEAFOOD so it is NOT ALLOWED in the house. Please send a photo of your ID (your name MUST match the name of the person who booked), as stated in the instructions, which YOU AGREED TO DO when you booked. You may send it via the app or email. NOTE: This is in addition to the photo that you sent to your booking site. They do not provide hosts with that information. If you need my email address, please let me know; I will be happy to send it to you! Not providing this information BEFORE YOU ARRIVE, will impede your ability to enter the property and could cause a cancellation of your stay. If you are uncomfortable with providing this information, you may choose to cancel the reservation in accordance with the cancellation policy as stated in the reservation. **I will not provide a refund for guests who do not read and understand the instructions that are provided to them before they book.** General instructions and a full introduction to my home are provided in your room. If you have any questions or concerns before you book, please feel free to message me and ask away! I want you to be confident that you'll feel safe and comfortable here.
