About Susan and Chris Gebb
We hand built this home from the ground up when we were young, salvaging 50 year old Coos Bay fir to build the floors, windows and doors. All the interior doors are original as is the the hardware. We planted every tree on the property and effectively gentrified the jungle, creating a serene tropical paradise to relax in and enjoy. We enjoy being creative with everything we do and believe that our life is our art.
Susan and Chris Gebb purchased this house in 1977
Why Susan and Chris Gebb chose Haiku
We chose to move to Huelo because of it's pristine environment, with clean air, pure water wells, and quiet surroundings. The rivers that run through this area flow all year round and provide recreation and contemplation for the community. The tropical climate allows the cultivation of orchids which flourish in the trees, and exotic flowers and foliage, which has provided a livelihood for our family for many years.
What makes this house unique
Our family has always had an interest in surfing and we are situated between 2 of the best surfing spots on the Island. Miles of country lanes provide scenic hiking and jogging. Quiet, starlit nights and the whispering trade winds make for blissful sleep. Low EMF environment contributes to the tranquility of the surroundings. Clean air, well water and quiet are the essence of the visitor experience.
