"Iris" is a small self containing, charming, romantic studio suite, and is one of three separate suites with a private entry in a single story apartment style building of Havens Creek Guesthouse, which was remodeled from late 1950 building and completed in Jan. 2015.

*** The simplicity of the building and unassuming front will surprise our guests once they enter their suites and walk out on the back deck! The contrast is intentional and our guests will be truly impressed by the stunning, peaceful and lovely views of the back!

This cozy suite is perfect for a single or a couple who likes a peaceful sanctuary or a romantic getaway.
Beautifully decorated guesthouse is on a 12 acre private land along the creeks in the redwood forest setting. Enjoy the hot tub under the redwood canopy listening to the sound of creek running and sea lions barking. Some night, watch the moon and stars lighten up the forest. Bright stars may be Jupiter and Venus! Enjoy the sunset and stars from the lounge area.. You will also see deer in the meadow behind the back yard and parking lot.
Please explore the creek area, and enjoy a short hike up the hill. There is a spot in the woods where you can view the Pacific Ocean. You would love fresh breeze from the forest! You will also see a partial view of Havens Neck Island on clear days. There is a picnic table and chairs for your enjoyment.
NO cars are allowed on the hiking path.

**** Please note that "Oak Suite" and "Redwood Suite" are in the same building. "Oak" and "Redwood" are both corner units. "Iris" is in the middle location. Please kindly look over the listing photos described in details.

My boyfriend and I had an amazing weekend away in the Iris Suite. It was the perfect weekend getaway within 3 hours of San Francisco. The suite is beautifully decorated and impeccably maintained. Kim and Peter are wonderful hosts and provided us with a list of things to see and do in the Gualala/Point Arena area. I highly recommend their property for some time away. Thank you, Kim and Peter! We’ll see you again.

The Iris suite is a very nice and relaxing studio to be in, on a wonderful property. It has beautiful scenery, a wonderful hot tip attached on the back deck, is close to town and various spots to check out, and owned by very wonderful hosts. They are beyond accommodating, you will not regret your stay here!

Kim and Peter are amazing great hosts. It was my second time staying at the IRIS SUITE. Kim makes you feel welcomed and is such a great host she brought us a cold plate and left a bottle of wine knowing that I was spending my 4th year Anniversary with my bf in the IRIS suite. IRIS SUITE is so beautiful and comfortable it feel more like home. I really enjoyed my stay I got to go to the Sea Ranch Chapel and got to get in the Hot tub. I would definitely recommend others to stay in this beautiful place. The place makes you feel close to nature besides the Redwoods there's the beach nearby that it is very amazing that my bf and I were able to hear seals. I would definitely come back again and let my friends and family know about the amazing hosts and amazing place. :) Defintely worth it.

My husband and I celebrated our 10th year anniversary in the Iris suite and it was amazing! The suite was very nicely decorated with a huge comfy bed in an ambient setting. They even gave us complimentary wine and a cold plate, which was so sweet! There are bathrobes available for use, as well. We loved the back woods area. We enjoyed walking down to the creek area and hiking up the hill to see the ocean view. I really liked meditating next to the creek! The hottub was amazing and in a great location! And there is so much to see in the area. Peter and Kim were great hosts! They communicated with us to make sure we had a pleasnt stay, and they were quick to respond to our questions. They also provided a folder full of recommended attractions, as well as brochures. We got to meet them before we left, and they were so friendly. We're really glad we had the pleasure of meeting them. We had a wonderful stay here and plan on coming back in the future! Thank you Peter and Kim!

This is an absolute gem and a great place to stay for the value. The forest and surrounding landscape is amazing to explore and even has a hiking trail behind the property. The perfect quiet get away. Apartment was clean and well kept with all the things you would need. Kim was a great host and helped us get settled and ready to stay there. The hot tub in the trees was the cherry on top!
