If you'd told me I'd be eating 3 meals a day with my 8-month-old baby (plus feeding her a 4 bottles a day) I wouldn't have believed you! But alas, here we are, and I can't wait to share all the...
I’m Renting Out My House On Airbnb!
We put our house on Airbnb!! This is it – it’s happening! Brett and I are renting out our house and we’re calling it… wait for it…
The 11th Street Retreat. (#11thStreetRetreat) What do you think of the name? I actually came up with it myself and I’m usually pretty terrible at names, ha!
So just to be clear, this is a BIG DEAL for Brett and me. This is the first house we ever owned together and we built it from the GROUND UP. It’s the only house we’ve lived in for the past 7 years and it holds so many of our important family memories. We’ve shared this house with our friends, family, and with everyone that watches HGTV. We’ve hosted our annual chili cook-off, had more birthday parties that we can count, beach days galore, we even made a pool in the bed of my pick-up truck in the front yard once.
I’ve stretched and challenged myself as a designer in this house, not to mention basically using it as a “living portfolio” to start Built Custom Homes. We came home from our honeymoon to this house, brought baby Hazel home from the hospital to this house, and leaving it was honestly like leaving a little piece of my heart behind. But wait, there’s a happy ending! Brett and I decided to keep the house (thank goodness, cause I would cry and cry if we had to sell it right now… maybe it’s the pregnancy hormones… maybe not) and we’re going to RENT IT TO ALL OF YOU!
So if you’ve followed me on social media or my blog for a while, you probably feel like you already know this house because it’s been the backdrop for our entire home life since 2013. If you don’t know this house, or want to see more of it, I’m going to be posting all about it on this blog, so make sure to sign up for my blog updates HERE. Also, I’ll be posting as we open up more dates, so make sure to follow us on social HERE.
Never in a million years did I think we would be able to rent our house and we’re SO EXCITED to share it with all of you. Please remember we’re new to this, so if you guys could be patient with us (new dates will be opening up every week until all of them are available) and kind to us, then I think this will be a really positive experience for our family. We can’t wait for your feedback, but hoping you guys will love the house or at least give us a chance to help you love it!
So yeah, you can see more photos and check out the listing HERE. Can’t wait to hear what you all think and hopefully see you in Huntington Beach really, really soon. 🙂
