We are thrilled to share Serenity with you in the rolling foothills of the Sierra Nevada, just minutes from Giant Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. Please make yourself at home away from home on thirteen acres untouched nature. This home is for those that love the natural environment, plants, animals, and everything that comes with it. We are a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat and work hard to comply with the NWF standards.
Serenity is at the end of a Cul de sac and offers complete privacy on 13 acres. The view from the deck and front of the house overlooks a lovely meadow and the seasonal Mill Creek just beyond. The house comfortably sleeps 8-10 persons on a Master bedroom king, an adjacent loft with two twin size and two full size beds and a family room queen sofa sleeper. Enjoy the view from the upstairs deck or downstairs patio. The home has a fully stocked kitchen, washer, dryer, and two bathrooms. There is plenty of space for parking, to spread out, and to make yourself at home.
We don't charge a deposit and there are no minimum stays. We want you to enjoy Serenity, even if for just one night, without breaking the bank.
Please inquire about special pricing if you would like to hold your special event at Serenity.
The guests will have access to the entire house, inside and out. The meadow, and the seasonal creek.
There is a fire pit on the patio and there is wood available for your use.
Interaction with guests
We will be available for communication up to, during, and after your stay via the AirBnB app and phone. We will not be present during your stay. You will have complete privacy. Periodically, I am up at the property working and am able to greet you as you arrive, but this is a rarity.
Other things to note

The house is located in wild farming country. There are insects, birds, bats, rodents, livestock, fox, deer, coyote, and wild turkeys. You can help us keep the critters out, by leaving the doors shut.
Please do not remove items from the property.
If you notice something is missing that should obviously be in the house, such as a can-opener, please notify us immediately so we can replace.
If something is damaged or breaks, please let us know so we can fix or replace.
Your cell phone WILL NOT work at the property, although you will be able to use WIFI for Web-Based phone Services.
Once your reservation is confirmed you will have access to the directions to the house which include the access to the code for the house and the house phone number which you can share with your friends and family.
Print directions before you leave. Your GPS will stop working before you arrive at the property.
Please do not watch videos, use video services, or listen to music over wifi. We have an excellent and extensive collection of vhs and dvd movies at the house. Unfortunately our satellite internet data is limited and is very slow. Once the 50GB allotment for the month is used up, the service becomes extremely slow. While we would like to, we are unable to purchase more or better internet service due to the lack of service providers in the area.
Please DO NOT BOOK if you require a fast, reliable internet connection. The internet is reliably slow and sometimes fast.
Please do not smoke inside the house. You may smoke on the very large patio the wraps around the house.
We have lived in Central California since June of 2014 and have come to know and love the area. We have traveled to Giant Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks several times and can offer tips if you'd like.
Before moving to Visalia we lived in the North San Diego area. I maintain a tax accounting practice in Visalia and Danny works from home as an Online High School Math Teacher. Between the two of us we have six children and two grandchildren.
We love people and want to share our experiences and learn from yours.
We appreciate, value, and care about education, helping the under-served, nature, movies, books, gourmet food, slow food, a good home cooked meal, conversation, hiking and camping.
Please feel free to ask us questions.
