"Our neighborhood is quite rural and mostly agricultural with several farms and a small private vineyard. We are a ten minute walk from the beach and a twenty minute walk, in the other direction, to a family grocery and deli specializing in local organic produce, as well as galleries, a bookstore, and a spa.” – Airbnb.com

"Cob, cobb or clom (in Wales) is a natural building material made from sand, clay, water, some kind of fibrous or organic material (straw) and earth. Cob is fireproof, resistant to seismic activity, and inexpensive. It can be used to create artistic, sculptural forms and has been revived in recent years by the natural building and sustainability movements." (wikipedia.com)

:-D How thoughtful of them to think to select a representative and how generous of you to accept. Between fires and earthquakes, I'm mystified that more Californians aren't choosing the cob house model for building. This place certainly shows what wonderful homes can be created using these materials. Thanks, Gayle.

The other 222 puzzlers have asked me to represent them: This is cute--big time. I could handle a place like this. It'd only take two minutes to clean it each morning. Thanks Pat! Keep on posting. :-)

Not a bad location either!

My first reaction to this was "Cute, but..." because of the perspective. It looked just too dinky - so I hunted it down (https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/1720832?s=brb_). WOW - I could SO live there (after I hit the lottery in order to buy out the owners). The interior is so charming and airy - very inviting. Oh yeah, fun puzzle too! Thanks, Pat!
