Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

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).

This property is a perfect example of why I like AirBnB - what a unique property. The 100 year old farm house is well-cared-for and clean. The house is well-equipped with kitchen and bbq items. It has a nice "homey" feel with interesting art and books. The garden area is lovely…

Wow! As some other reviewers noted, the photos don't do it justice! It is a wondrous house with lots of open space. The setting is sweet...only a couple of miles to one of my favorite views on Earth...looking south through the sea stacks at Cuffey Cove. Jeff has an attention to d…
