Interaction with Guests
We opened our home to the public when Richard accepted a temporary assignment in Costa Rica. Our US base is still in Los Angeles. We visit the Green Haus as often as we can but in general we won't be able to greet you in person when you arrive.
Our house manager Karen lives near the property and is always available if our guests need anything.

We have just spent 5 (email hidden)e property was accurately listed and its location was as expected - near enough to local amenities, but far enough so that they did not interfere with the peace and silence of GH. There are few neighbours and they are not close to GH. The views are fantastic, looking S over the valley to the National Park and W to the snow-covered (website hidden) is a lovely spacious property, with excellent appliances and fittings. It was perfectly clean, with plenty of towels for the bathroom and hot tub.
The owners could not be present to meet us, but contacted us by email just after our arrival to check if everything was ok and to tell us to contact them with any queries. They provided plenty of information regarding finding GH, how to use the appliances etc, about the National Park, about other local attractions and where to shop.
We did need to contact the owners about a minor problem when we inadvertently locked an internal door, but this was quickly resolved by them and the local property manager. Great customer service!
We had a great time at GH and in the area, and have no hesitation in recommending it.
Woww.. What a wonderful view of the national park. Thanks Daniela and Richard for the hospitality and conglatulations for the treasure. Top destination.
Lovely home, met and exceeded our expectations. Very clean and well kept, both inside and out. Private, quiet location, but not hard to find. Home is quite roomy, great for relaxation and cooking a nice dinner. We especially enjoyed stargazing from the the hot tub, perusing Daniela and Richard's library, and using the massage table. What a treat. Thank you for a great stay!
Daniela and Richard's house is fantastic. So peaceful and beautifully designed. They were very responsive from the start and cool with a last minute reservation. The house is ideal for a quiet retreat which is what we used it for.
The house was AMAZING as adverstised. We enjoyed breakfast on the patio overlooking the desert every morning and soaking in the hot tub every (chilly) night! It was the perfect location for climbing at JTree which we did for the four days we were there. It was about a 15 - 20 minute drive depending on the entrance. It was so nice to come back to all the comforts of home after a long day of hiking and climbing. Definitely want to return!
Quiet and private, with a very relaxing environment. The placement of the property takes full advantage of its southern exposure, Beautiful sunrises and stunning sun sets. The views overlooking the valley are easy on the eyes. So close to wilderness but close to town. We found this place great to be based out of. Easy access to roads for cycling. It was not that far from the park were my husband spent many days climbing.
Another relaxing weekend in a hot tub in the middle of the desert. With plenty of wine, of course. We'll be back again.
My husband and I are both architects with a passion for the desert...the heat, the cold, the physical environment and the solitude. It has an allure that is enduring and brings you back again and again. We have tried to create a place that will let you truly enjoy this magical environment in a comfortable setting.
