The SpaceOur house is an eclectic oasis in the center of quaint downtown Merced. It's perfect for individual travelers or a couple seeking a peaceful place to unwind on their journey, or a space to energize and get inspired. The porch and common areas are filled with art, plants, and lots of color. Your private room is a breezy, nature-themed haven with all the amenities of home; it's set with a roomy queen size bed, a small desk, lots of maps, guides, books, tips on area attractions, and fun details. Please let us know if you have any special requests or occasions we can help manifest. Acceptance, open-mindedness, and a welcoming environment await you. Guest AccessIn addition to your private room, you're welcome to hang out in the shared living area, grab a book to read, play an instrument, or watch a film on our big-screen TV. We encourage our guests to relax and feel at home here. You're also welcome to cook something up in our spacious kitchen, which is fully equipped and freely shared! Interaction with GuestsWe're excited to welcome you to our home and provide excellent hospitality. We'll be happy to orient you to Merced and its surrounding communities. And we're always available to answer all your questions or point you in the right direction. The NeighborhoodMercy Sanctuary is nestled in historic downtown Merced, the most charming and architecturally interesting part of town. A wide variety of beautiful, mature trees and craftsman houses give our neighborhood a unique and friendly flavor. Merced bills itself as the Gateway to Yosemite, which is situated about an hour and a half drive (69 miles from our door). In addition to our proximity to the legendary national park, we are smack-dab in the middle of California, making it the perfect way station between points North and South or East and West. Merced itself has all the amenities of big-city living, but it's blessed with a small-town vibe that's both friendly and accessible, as well as a thriving local theater scene. Getting Around10-15 minute walk to YARTS (Yosemite Shuttle), Amtrak station, Greyhound/Merced Transportation Center, and two stops for UC Merced local transit "CatTracks." Free street parking in front of the house. Downtown Merced is also an easy stroll away, with parks and tree-lined bike and walking paths connecting you to the rest of the city from our doorstep. Other Things to NoteWe maintain an organic vegan kitchen here at Mercy Sanctuary. We believe that making this commitment is the best way we can contribute to the health of this planet and the saving of life on earth. While we share our kitchen freely, we respectfully request that our guests abstain from cooking/storing/consuming meat here.

The SpaceIt's a quiet home, and I'll probably be around in my office or the kitchen if needed. Your sheets and towels are line-dried, so plenty of CA sun and fresh breezes are baked into them. I also have a room, newly refurbished, with a queen sized bed in it. You can choose that instead of the room with twin beds. But I do not book both rooms at the same time. So you will never have to share the private bath. Guest AccessWi-fi available, pool. 47 "TV in living room. OK to bring food, fix a simple meal. Interaction with GuestsI will likely be here during your stay, working in my office, or puttering in the kitchen. You will have all the privacy you want, or I will be available to tell you about restaurants, theaters, etc. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is quiet, and everyone makes a decent effort keeping their yards pretty. It's a good walking neighborhood, and very close by is Bear Creek, which has bike/walking paths on either side. Getting AroundYou can park in the front of the house, or in the driveway, if you park far to the left side. That way, I can get my car out of the garage. If you come by bus or train, I suggest you have LYFT or UBER downloaded into your phone, and call it when you get into town. It's a small town, and it won't be much of a charge. LYFT is just like UBER, and we have it in Merced. I think you'll have better luck contacting Uber. UBER and LYFT are just like taxis, only cheaper. If you'd rather take a regular taxi, call Yellow Cab Company: ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). Also, here's a website on always-current conditions in Yosemite: (URL HIDDEN) Other Things to NoteI have lots of flowers, maybe you can give me advice on your favorite flowers! Hey, if you find my calendar is booked when you want to come...check out my friend, Rosa's listing in Atwater. It's only 9 miles north of me. Type Atwater in the search field. Hers is the one that says, "Gateway to Yosemite". Lovely, clean home, sweet lady, breakfast!
