About the Homestay
My mom and I own a manufactured home in Lakeside, CA. It is about a 20 minute drive to get into the main part of the city. However, most places are easily within a 30 minute drive. Santee and El Cajon are the big neighbor cities and they are within 10 minutes each. We have 2 dogs. 1 is a Jack Russell mix and the other is a Manchester Terrier mix. They are both about 20lbs each. Where we live is considered "the boonies" at least from what my friends say. However, it was far enough out of the city for us to enjoy some peace and quiet but mom and I are still able to drive to work in under 1 hour (during rush hour). The climate can be more extreme in our neck of the woods as compared to coastal cities. It gets as hot as the 100s in the summer time and as low as the 30s in the winter time, at night of course. During the days in winter it is usually in about the 50s. We have high speed internet in the house. We do not have cable for the TV, we just don't watch enough TV to have that. We have all new appliances in our home. We are the first owners of this home. There is laundry in the house, washer and dryer. There are 2 bathrooms, 1 in my room which is the master bedroom and then 1 in the hallway. My mom and I are mostly stay at home kind of people. We are quiet and don't make much noise at all. So we expect that of prospective roomies. We are looking for either a single, responsible person or possibly a married couple. No children please and also no pets as we already have 2 dogs. If you have any questions please feel free to send me a message. I am a full time worker and I have school as well so I will do my best to respond in a timely manner. Looking forward to hearing from you!

About the Area
There is a bus stop within walking distance of the house. There is also a trolley in Santee which is about a 7 minute drive from home. We are less than 1 mile from the 8 freeway. Our area is very quiet and the only people that really drive down the main road are people that come and go from the Lake Jennings which is right next to our community.
