Hi! My name is Tamara and I love to experience new places and explore places that are "off the beaten path" or are favorites of the locals. I am particularly interested in historic towns and sites as well as open space preserves and parks.
By profession I am a principal in a Landscape Architecture firm ((website hidden)). In my "previous life" I was a Veterinary Nurse and spent some time restoring historic homes. I currently reside in a historic town in the Santa Cruz Mountains, where I have a spacious property with Victorian Guest Cottages that I share with travelers. I grow most of my own organic heirloom vegetables on the property and love to share gardening tips!
What is it like to have me as a host? I've been told that coming to my property is like stepping back in time and is the perfect place to rejuvenate the spirit. Guests have also appreciated having their own cottage and the privacy that comes with it. Because I am very involved in my community, I can also give lots of tips on where to go and what to do depending on the desires of the guest.
