Roundup Realty is a small, local realty shop. Realtor Linda Phillips Silvera calls it home and has helped several of my Friends sell or buy homes in the area. In fact, she recently helped one of my Friends sell very quickly which was amazing based on the recent real estate slow down. She is friendly and knowledgeable. She can help you with a basic home or agricultural/ranch style living. She is also a notary public.
Cruiser Haven and sister Cruiser Have Marinas are some of the best marinas on the delta. If you are worried about the new code enforcement, move your boat here. They offer dry dock storage with unlimited launches, they also have covered slips and dry storage for your boat as well as your trailer. They offer clean restrooms, family fun and deep water to set sail on. Holland Riverside even offers swimming and a picnic area.
The next time that you need to go out of town and leave your pets, don't bring them to a stressful boarding kennel, instead call Cherri. You can arrange for her to come one, two or three times a day, you set the schedule. She will feed and water your pets and make sure that they get their daily exercise and then cleanup after them. She also will do mail pick up and set out your garbage cans while you are gone. In my case, she also turned on the lights for me at night. I would call her in a heartbeat. She is licensed, bonded and insured.
Skylark Equestrian is a brand new center located on the very edge of Brentwood along Marsh Creek Road. They have a brand new state of the art show barn, day camps, lessons for all ages and levels and offer birthday parties. They also offer breeding, boarding, sales and training. The customer service is excellent and it is both a relaxing and exhilarating place at the same time.
Abbey Vet Hospital is the only vet in the area to offer low cost pet care. Office visits are only $15 and they offer low cost spay neuter programs on the weekends for $45 for a spay and $35 for a neuter. The prices are great, but the service sometimes is a little on the bleak side. The doctor was brisk and I wasn't thrilled with the cleanliness of the office. The receptionist couldn't remember when they are open. However, if you need to get the deed done cheaply, this is still the place to go.
The Party place offers a very wide range of hours for drop in time for your children. They also offer before/after school care, hourly pick-up and drop off, a flexible preschool program, private parties and movie nights. Their rates in the evenings after 5:00 PM are especially attractive and they are open until 8:00 PM on the week nights. They have a rock climbing wall that my kids love and a great puppet house. The only downside is the pre-registration fee of $25.
Sue's Sweethearts Daycare and Preschool is open from 6:45 AM to 6 PM. It is nice to have the extra 15 minutes from those places that don't open until 7:00 AM so that you have a little bit more time to get ahead of the traffic. They have free and guided play both indoors and outdoors. There is music, learning, Spanish, circle and computer time. There is a quiet time daily from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM which I did think was a little long. They also have arts & crafts and are very focused on manners and sharing.
Sew Ewe Quilt is tucked away in a small industrial complex. Once you go in the door though you are in another world, they have patterns, pre-made sets, bolts and bolts of fabric of all types and fat quarters. In the back of the shop they have meetings and offer training classes. I was especially intrigued by the sew your first quilt kit. The prices are fair, the fabrics beautiful, but they are not open Sunday's and Monday's.
