Comfy, cozy and clean indoors. Panoramic view outdoors. Sit out on a large deck under sail shades. Begin your day with your favorite hot drink in hand watching the sunrise over the lake. Say good-night to the sun as it settles over the Ortegas.
What REALLY makes our place unique is the characters who live here ;-)
One of my dreams was to one day own a Bed & Breakfast where people from all over the world could come and experience a relaxing, fun, inspirational and enlightening time that they would forever treasure and remember. Well, being an Air B n B host could be the next best thing... or possibly the best thing. What a concept this is...! It creates multiple opportunities for my gift of service and hospitality to take charge.
Air B n B is a community where creative and artsy people can find inspiration and serenity in a laid-back atmosphere. If you are the proverbial "starving artist" I guarantee you will not starve here.
I can offer you healthy and wholesome smoothies, snacks, and drinks while you offer the world a piece of your soul through your own gifts and talents. I honor and appreciate those gifts, because as a singer and writer, I share the same passion for creative expression.
I will note here, that I can accept up to two guests in this room. However, one of you will sleep on a thick foam matt on the carpet. Toss a coin and you decide. Either way, I will do my best to ensure that you both sleep comfortably.
It may not be fancy shmancy, but what I do have here is HEART and SOUL. The feel I'm going after in creating ambiance is more of an upscale, earthy minimalist. Is that a contradiction? Come and see (or feel) for yourself, and then offer some constructive feedback to make the experience here even better.
Our cozy living space can be partitioned off with a curtain for a little more privacy, as it is your semi-private sleeping quarters. The loft above the living room has iron rails, and this can also be temporarily partitioned. So, technically, the ceiling and air space is shared with my daughter. My back bedroom is off-limits.
In your sleeping quarters, you have access to Cable TV, WiFi, and Roku Streaming for Netflix movies. You may also use the karaoke equipment hooked up to the TV, using Roku Streaming for You Tube Karaoke Channels.
Everything (except the stove) in the small adjacent kitchen can be used. I am 100% Dagonese, and 99% RAW Veganese. I know, I know, go figure...! You can't even do the Math on that one...! A full-blooded Italian who doesn't eat cheese...!? However, there are pots and pans and a counter-top, two-burner stove. If you absolutely must use over 118 degrees to kill your food, then go for it ;-) You think I'm joking, don't you...? Ha ha ;-)
I am a Career Sub, meaning I have a semi-permanent day job in education. I will usually be working long-term teaching assignments, Mondays through Fridays, between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., give or take an hour on each end.
However, in special circumstances and with enough advance notice, I can be flexible with availability and accommodating with helping to plan your vacation itinerary. If I am not in a long-term position at the time of your booking, I am open to being more of a tour guide during your stay.
As this is a RV Resort Park, you will be asked to check in at the front office as my GUEST and FRIEND. This is a family owned and operated resort and campground. The owners always look out for their residents and make sure that they maintain their rights to a peaceful atmosphere. Yes, there will be bonfires, music and merriment, mostly during holiday weekends. However, all of the rules of KEEPING THE PEACE apply here.
No loud music after 10:00 p.m. You will not be hosting any private parties of your own, unless you do so through the office, by paying the extra fee for a camping spot by the shore.
In that case, there are many local places to rent recreational equipment and gear for water sports and activities, as well. I currently do not own any of those things, as I've only used the beach for sunbathing, swimming, and an occasional campfire with friends and family.
Also, there is a small laundromat on the premises ~ four washers and four dryers. If they are in use, then you will find a few larger facilities a short way down the main street. There are no quarter change machines here, so have a roll of quarters on you, if you plan to do your laundry here.
If our little bathroom and shower stall is not quite large enough for you, you may also have access to the camp facilities located in the building caddy corner across from our home.
However, you will also apply the house rules to the campground rules... ALWAYS BE MINDFUL AND CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELF. I have a reputation to uphold here, people... The owners know how meticulous I am and have never had to reprimand me in the four years I've been a resident. I trust you won't get me evicted. :-/
First and foremost, I EXPECT the same R-E-S-P-E-C-T that I give to you. If you enjoy laying your head down in a clean place where you feel safe and comfortable, then PLEASE keep it that way.
Be MINDFUL of putting things back after every use. Mi casa es ONLY tu casa if TU can keep it as clean as you found it. The cleaning fee is only intended for washing bedding, linens, towels, and for regular maintenance to prepare for the next guest.
No smoking in or around the house. If you must smoke, then you must walk your butt down to the beach and then throw away your extinguished butts in trash receptacles. Fair enough...?
OR you can try this before you light up... Breathe in slowly while counting to 10... hold it while counting to 10... breathe out slowly while counting to 10...Ahhhh... Do 20 reps of that and see if you can conquer the urge on your own.
If that doesn't work, I'll let you in on a secret... I am trained in Professional Hypnosis. Although I had some profound experiences with it, I haven't really used it in about 12 years. If you think you'd like to volunteer as a subject who I can sharpen my skills on, let me know. That will be free of charge. If you experience some positive results, then maybe you can write a testimonial I can use to post somewhere down the road, if and when I decide to grow a practice around it.
No illegal substances... I may agree that it SHOULD be legalized, but I may have different reasons for that than yours. So, let's agree to disagree and not try to change the law here on my watch, please ;-)

I am also a contributing writer for Huffington Post. My first published post was in June of 2014. I have a wide range of interests and enjoy dabbling in a little (or a lot) of everything that is wholesome, healthy and fun.
Five things I choose not to live without are: love, laughter, whole raw foods, exercise and creativity.
I've traveled abroad to several places over the past few decades. My first experience was as a cultural exchange student to Germany during the Summer of 1973, my Junior year in high school. Since then, I've been back three more times (in 1987, in 1993 and in 2007).
I also worked as a coordinator and teacher for several cultural exchange programs, placing international students in American homes, coordinating activities for them, and teaching them English in a classroom setting.
In 1988, I traveled with my first husband to the Philippines, to stay with an American couple who founded and managed an orphanage. We spent our whole time with the natives there, getting to know them and their culture and developing meaningful bonds.
In 1995, I created my own foreign exchange program with Tahitian groups. This took me to Tahiti to do an orientation for them and their families. That was my all-time favorite destination. Again, we (our group of four American students and three adults) stayed with locals who provided us with a much deeper cultural experience by introducing us to all of the aspects of Tahitian culture.
I have a colorful past, when it comes to having moved a lot over the years of my first marriage and since my divorce , as well as after my second marriage and divorce. During my first marriage of 19 years, we had many family members living with us on and off. We and our four children had also been invited to live with close friends and family during temporary transitional periods.
Because of the extent of these moves, I developed the ability to be highly aware of other people's moods, sensitive to their needs, flexible with my management of time and accommodating as a hostess. I am meticulous as a housekeeper and as a guest. When living in shared spaces, no matter how small or large, I am considerate of others who have to share that same space, and I make a place for everything to be found easily and without hassle.
Although I enjoy having nice quality things, I prefer not to have too much of anything. In other words, I do not hoard or clutter. I am moving more and more towards the life of a true minimalist with a sense of style and taste. To me less is more... more time freed up to do more of the activities I enjoy. So when I travel, I like to apply the same principles, so that unpacking when I return home doesn't have to feel like such a chore.
As a writer, I've had many a motto pop into my mind. Each phase of my anomalous life has had an accompanying motto. Ironically, I can't seem to pull any of them up at the moment. When I do, I'll be sure to return to update this answer ;-)
One thing I learned from the Tahitian culture that seemed to align with my own philosophy of friendship, was to treat everyone you meet as someone you've known for a long time. It stems from my Higher Conscious awareness that we are all One and that we all came from the same place to this planet to learn and grow our light together.
