Bedroom & private bathroom with community-minded hosts to help orient you. Most of our guests are here to 1) visit Lassen Volcanic National Park 2) rest & renew while traveling between Portland & SF or LA or 3) scout out the area before moving here. LGBTQ-friendly.
Per the Redding city ordinance that went into effect in March 2016, we collect 10% ToT (transient occupancy tax) and 2% TMBID (Tourism & Marketing Business Improvement District) fees which we give to the city on a monthly basis. Our business license # is 35170.
We have two gregarious golden retriever dogs and a house cat who thinks she owns the place. We'd like to introduce the dogs to you when you arrive (unless you're not a dog person, in which case no worries.:))
Our family tend to be early risers, so relative quiet after 10pm is appreciated.
We're a non-smoking, drug-free household (not counting caffeine;)).
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund. Cancel within 5 days of your trip and the first night is non-refundable, but 50% of the cost for the remaining nights will be refunded.
My husband, Aaron and I have been Airbnb guests when we travel, and we've really enjoyed hosting since we started in July 2014. We love hearing about where people are from--especially international guests. We've each spent time living abroad in Perth, Australia, Dublin, Ireland and Gorzow, Poland.
Aaron is a financial planner for Woven Capital, a fee-only financial planning firm based here in Redding. I am the Program Officer for Community Vitality with The McConnell Foundation. For 9 years, I worked as a Research Director for Institute for the Future, based in Palo Alto. Am always eager to connect with kindred spirits from Silicon Valley.
We've been parents for about 3 years now, and that gives us a whole new lens on thinking about the future!
As hosts, we're happy to share about the Redding community and to orient you to some of the great spots you can enjoy during your time here. We're community-minded people. We are both active in Catalyst, a young professionals organization and Rachel writes a monthly column for the local paper about civic innovation & economic development. Together with our team, we co-curate TEDxRedding (TED = Technology, Entertainment & Design). There is lots of geekiness in our house, including an interest in The North State Blockchain Meetup, National Day of Civic Hacking, and more.
Am a fan of the overall philosophy of Airbnb. Sometimes it's natural to feel a sense of scarcity in life--why not leverage the ones we have in abundance? Many people make a distinction between tourism and traveling--I believe travelers are those who wish to meet interesting people to enrich their experience of a place, and (at the risk of being cliche) Airbnb has potential to do just that.
