Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.
Sparkling clean14 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.

This 100-year old redwood farmhouse (expanded and modernized several times) has been our family getaway since purchase from Katherine in 1958.

The house was built in 1916 for Katherine by her parents. As the story goes, because by then, Katherine was in her 30’s and “beyond a reasonable age for marriage.”

While the house retains its 100-year old charm, we try to keep things green. All electricity for the house is 100% Solar (purchased from PG&E).

Had a great stay at the farm house and host Jeff was great! Everything was as advertised and the personal touches really added to the experience. I thought it was a great price. Wish we could have stayed longer! Would go back again.

Jeff's place is just lovely. The garden and the view are beautiful, the wood interiors give it a cozy, beachy feel, and the beds are comfy. The kitchen is decently stocked and the spices and oils were great to have. (A whisk would be a good addition to the utensils.) Jeff was ve…

Jeff was great with communicating. Although I did not see or stay in the house, I booked this stay for my caterer the weekend of our wedding. I heard nothing but good things and he said he would be back!
