About Your Host

Carole Stephen Smith

I was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, then moved to London and surrounding counties for work. In the UK I lived in Berkshire, Suffolk, Sussex, Essex, Norfolk and more before landing in California, where I worked for presidents and movie stars for many years before I ran out of steam. I am now a charity and philanthropic journalist and enjoy meeting people from all over the world. I hope you book my casita and enjoy the experience as so many before you have done. With 760+ five-star reviews, I can honestly say you will have a home away from home.

During Your Stay

I am always present to greet you and I usually text guests once daily to ask if they need anything, but I will give you privacy unless you ask me to interact with you. I am only a call or text away throughout your stay to help with further local information, directions, eating, shopping, hiking, and more.
