Enjoy a beverage by the pool at the end of the day or have a cup of coffee by the firepit in the morning. There are comfortable queen beds in each of the 3 rooms. If you need fewer than 3 beds, please see similar same house listing that offers 1 or 2 bedrooms. The bathroom has 2 sinks to enable multiple people to get ready at the same time. You'll have access to the kitchen should you wish to make something to eat. Please note that I live in the home and will likely be there when you are there.

The space

The backyard is secluded from neighbors. The pool cools you off in the heat and the firepit warms you up on a chilly night. There is plenty of spare room to stretch out in this 3,000 square foot home - whether it be in the backyard or in one of the two living rooms in which you can enjoy a good book or listen to music.
If you enjoy cooking, the kitchen is available for your use, and has almost everything you could imagine in the form of pots/pans and tools for meal preparation. And you are welcome to store food in the refrigerator.

This house is the perfect place for a group of people who want to stay together.

Guest access

Guests will have their own bathroom that has two sinks and a shower/bath combination. 100% Egyptian cotton towels, shampoo, conditioner, soap, and a hairdryer are made available for your use.

If you have lots of luggage (or perhaps band instruments!) there is a loft upstairs where you can put these items so you are not tripping over them in your room.

Each bedroom has been freshly painted and has a queen bed with new, comfortable sheets. Plenty of extra pillows and blankets should you like to keep the windows open and burrow in! One room has curtains that prevent the light from coming in should you wish to sleep in late or take a nap during the day. Another room has a small television.

Guests are welcome to make full use of the house. From the spacious living rooms to the fully appointed kitchen to dining outside - all is here and ready for you to enjoy!

There is always fresh, premium coffee brewing in the morning, and I have a wide selection of teas, including decaffeinated flavors. Make yourself a meal or snack in the kitchen that has top of the line appliances, and every pot/pan and tool you could use.

There is free, on street parking in the quiet neighborhood. If you want to take a walk, it is only one block to a local park that has a path, or you can walk safely, even in the evenings, around the block. The park has lots of lawn and a play structure for kids.

I am happy to accommodate same day requests. The calendar is updated frequently.

Interaction with guests

We look forward to hearing about your adventures, but if you are looking for solitude we can accommodate that too! You get to set the tone. Just let us know which you prefer.

With it being myself and my husbands very first time ever using a B and B, we would for sure do it again after the experience with Mary!! She literally made us feel like we were a part of her family. She had fresh homemade brownies ready to go when we walked in! We had such amazing conversation right from the beginning and she gave us a tour of her lovely home right when we walked in to make us feel at home. Mary knew so much about the food restaurants and attractions around her area (complete with brochures for different places and their prices) that we didn't know where to start! :) Mary is such a warm person and really made this an enjoyable time for my husband and I. With me being 5 months pregnant I had some food choice preferences and Mary went unexpectedly out of her way her accommodate! The bed was so comfortable we passed out as soon as we hit it! The blackout curtains were perfect to allow us time to sleep in! Mary's home is very beautiful and neat, and we are so glad we chose to stay there on our way to LA!! Mary is so great that we exchanged emails to make sure we keep in touch!! Thanks again so much Mary for such a wonderful stay!! ~Jason, Laura and Baby Vu :)

We really enjoyed our stay with Mary. She was such a gracious hostess. Her home is so beautiful that our only regret is we couldn't be there when the weather was warmer to enjoy her beautiful back yard & pool. We enjoyed taking pictures of the many birds in the back yard and listening to the fountain. It was one of the best places we have stayed and we would recommend it to everyone we know. We hope we can come back soon. Many, many thanks for wonderful hospitality.

Response from Mary:
Ileen, you, Tim, Ann, and Herb were a delight to host! I am looking forward to your return when we can enjoy a bottle of wine together, and perhaps tell tall tales around the fire pit one night. Looking forward to posting Tim's pictures on my airbnb site so others can enjoy his fine photography skills. Safe travels! Mary

Mary's place in Elk Grove was a truly beautiful and relaxing place to stay. The house and yard are stunning and Mary is a most gracious and welcoming host. She made us feel right at home, making us dinner the night we arrived and providing us with maps and information about the area so that we could go adventuring with ease. We spent a lot of time lounging by the pool and sitting by the fire pit in the backyard. It was much needed r & r for us. We would absolutely stay with Mary again and would recommend staying there if your in the area. Thanks again Mary! :)

I love to travel. I have been to four continents and want to explore more. I lived in Malaysia for over a year and have been to France six times, Australia twice, Thailand twice, and Italy once. On my wish list is VietNam and Greece! I love to learn about people's daily lives and explore new areas. Since I have been fortunate enough to travel, and I love to host friends and family, I try to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Whether it be ensuring there is fresh coffee in the morning or ideas on where you might want to visit or eat, I want to make you feel right at home!
