Beautiful amazing place. A must go if you want to be surrounded by nature with the beach 20min away. I could have just hung out at the house all day.

Perfect as always

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying here. If you are looking for that special secluded place that no one will bother you this is the place. You can relax in the non-jetted hot tub, relax under the giant redwood trees, throw a steak on the grill and chill. Both times we never left the serenity of this place. Heck we even ordered our groceries the local Raley's before we left. We pulled in to Raley's they brought our order out and we were at the property in less than 30 minutes. We will be back!

Perfect getaway! Tranquil, clean, eclectic and homey

  • 5 of 5

The home owner was profession and very easy to work with. The home is an artsy, eclectic getaway deep in the California redwoods. You will feel a hundred miles away from the world yet town is only about a 15 minute drive away. The house has everything you need, is clean, has ample outdoor space with a BBQ and fire pits. If Lord of the Rings and The Goonies made a movie, this is where it would be filmed. Overall, Beth happy with our choice to stay here!!

A wonderful respite

  • 4 of 5

We loved this house. We had a little difficulty finding it at first but, once we did we settled in quickly. There are a lot of stairs bringing you up into the trees so make sure that you pack efficiently. My husband two kids and I were only there for one night and truly wish that we could have stayed longer. It is such a peaceful cozy place and a much needed respite on our drive up the coast. There are lots of nice surprises throughout the patio and house. If we are ever in the area we will certainly go back.
