FAQ

Q: Is Affinity totally private?

A: In effect, yes it is. The studio does, however, sit atop the garage of an adjacent home (occupied by a wonderful family). The driveway / parking area is the lone shared or non-private space. Affinity guests receive a dedicated parking space that's within a few feet of the studio's entry stairs.

Q: We're a couple traveling with a child. Where does the third person sleep?

A: There are two more traditional options, and one perhaps less-than-traditional option. Most would likely choose to sleep on either the sofa or the twin sized air mattress. The less traditional choice (though guests have relayed to us on more than one occasion that it's been done) is the outdoor lounge set on the covered lanai. There's generally a great breeze out there, so we can see how it appeals to some!

Q: I am concerned about the logistics of arriving, checking out, etc. How does it work?

A: We recognize the potential for guest's coming and going at "odd" times of the day and night. As a result, we have established all processes and procedures to make you 100% self-sufficient during your stay. It all starts with the reservation - once the deposit has been received, we email a confirmation that includes the property address, directions to the property from the airport, parking instructions, the code to the lockbox that is mounted next to the front door (to let yourself in), and a phone number to call in the event of any problems. Once guests have arrived and checked themselves in, everything inside is fairly straightforward. However, there is a house guide to assist you in the event that you have problems finding something or figuring out how to use something. As for check-out, once again, guests are completely self-sufficient - simply hang up the keys, lock the doors, and you're off!

Q: What is the weather generally like at the time of year I'm planning to visit?

A: The north shore’s monthly temperature & rainfall averages can be found here.

Q: What sort of beach gear do you provide?

A: At present (June '13), we have two boogie boards, three snorkel/mask sets (no fins), two beach chairs, a beach umbrella and a roll-up beach mat. See photo.
