In your own little oasis, enjoy the hum of hundreds of Hummingbirds flying outside your window and the beautiful view we offer from your large private patio or from the deck. The Hummingbird Haven is alive with nature yet very peaceful. It is a wonderful place to recharge, relax or have a retreat.

הנכס
If you are familiar with the Mushroom Dome Cabin that we offer through airbnb, then you will have an idea of the wonderful place we live.
We require a 2 day minimum reservation on the weekends. Please make it from Friday to Sunday (or more) as we need to have at least one day a week free: we don't want people to arrive on Saturday.
The Hummingbird Haven is a unique space with plenty of privacy yet with expansive views that look south and west with wonderful views of the tree covered ridge across the canyon and our little fruit tree orchard below.
Outside is a covered patio with a fountain and garden, 2 loveseats, a small table and chairs, a BBQ, and hummingbirds galore (about 200 - 600!). It is a great place to just relax and take in the peace and vibrant nature around us.
The main bed is a very comfy semi-loft Queen bed, (up 3 steps and has 1-side access), and the studio sofa can convert to a single bed. (Please let us know ahead of time if you want the studio sofa made up as a bed. There is a $10. charge for this. see below for more instructions)
We have a 48 inch LED Samsung TV in the Haven with a dvd player (and over 80 movies for both adults and children). We also now have Direct TV! And the WiFi has no password.
Of course we provide a made-up bed(s) with clean sheets as well as towels.
The room doesn't have any air conditioning since we live in a very temperate climate (it doesn't get humid or very hot) and it is built into the side of a hill so the earth keeps it comfortable year round. We have a space heater if you should need any extra heat.
There is a refrigerator and sink in the room as well as an electric coffee/tea pot to heat up your water. We provide coffee and tea bags. We also have a cupboard full of dishes. Let us know if you want to cook here.
If your party of 2 doesn't want to share the queen bed in the loft, please make your reservation for 3 and we will then make up the extra bed for you. If there will be just 2 of you, but you want the extra bed and are going to stay here for more than 2 days, please email me before you make your reservation and I will give you a discount for the extra bed.
Of course if there will be 3 of you, please make the reservation for 3. Exception: you have a baby that will share your bed or you will bring a pack-an-carry.

By the patio is the small fancy bathroom (aka an "outhouse") with a water-less, odor-free Nature's Head composting boat toilet and hot running water. You'll find a hair-dryer there too. At the other end of the patio is an outdoor slate shower (with hot water!) which closes off with a wood door. If you are tall enough, you can see over the top of the door, or you can just leave the door open and enjoy the full experience of an outdoor shower. There is also a roll-down shade to help block out any wind or to provide shade if you need it. There is plenty of privacy!
We also provide a beach blanket and beach towels and some games.
We have a small "farmette" here with 3 friendly goats, a flock of chickens, a tiny dog, Elliot, (who love to meet new people) and 2 cats. (The black and white tuxedo cat, Milo, will come visit you. We don't allow him into the Haven however.)
Did I mention the Hummingbirds? During the summer we not only have the year-round Annas, but also migratory Allen and Rufous. We feed about 120 oz. of "nectar" per day during the summer and 32 oz in the winter! As we feed them along the Haven patio and the deck right above, you will see and hear the beautiful and lively hummers all day long. (you are welcome to hang out on the deck above the Haven's patio if you want to see a Hummer feeding party.)
We also have trails on our property which I will be glad to show you.
Surrounded by nature, yet we are an eight minute drive to the conveniences and facilities of Aptos Village and the 10,000 acre Forest of Nisene Marks with picnic areas and miles of hiking and biking trails. We are less than 10 minutes to the Rio Del Mar and Seacliff State Beaches, part of a complex of over ten miles of beaches. We are 20 minutes to downtown Santa Cruz and the Beach Boardwalk Amusement Park and 45 min. to Monterey. (assuming it is not rush hour ; )
If you plan far enough ahead, you can book both the Hummingbird Haven and the Mushroom Dome Cabin for a larger group. (However we don't allow loud, raucous parties.)
Please don't smoke here in the Studio or on the property.

אזורים נגישים לאורחים
You park up by our house in front and to the right of the arbor and standing lamp on the right side of our parking area. (please park perpendicular to the house.) Access to the Haven is down the steps through our garden then down a stairs. You are welcome to sit on the deck right above the patio to watch the hummers or enjoy some sun.

דברים נוספים שכדאי לדעת
Our driveway is long and narrow and goes up a hill. There are turn-outs along the way. Just be sure to take it slowly.
We have some hiking trails here and a little "farmette" with adorable goats and chickens.
Occasionally, we have a power outage during the winter. If that happens, we will provide battery operated lights. If the main road is blocked by a downed tree, I'll let you know how to get in or out of our area.
The Haven is in our house and under our living room. We try to stay quiet when we have guests - you can let us know if you can hear us and it bothers you. (none of our guests have complained)

The guests that we have had in the Mushroom Dome Cabin are amazed by the quiet and peaceful nature of our area. At night, you will hear lots of crickets, maybe an owl or a tree frog and sometimes the ocean waves crashing in the distance. In the summer, you can see the Milky Way as we are far enough away from city lights that, on a clear night, you can see quite a lot of stars.
The Monterey Bay is one of the most vibrate marine sanctuaries in the world - sometimes hosting the largest gathering of marine mammals in the world. We have various whales here year round with whale watching tours daily. Check out our reviews of the Mushroom Dome Cabin to get feedback from our guests of our property. (airbnb.com/rooms/8357). If you plan ahead, you can have a larger group here by reserving both spaces.

We live on 10 beautiful acres of sun, oak forest, redwood groves and gardens with 2 goats, a parrot, 2 cats, a small dog, 5 chickens and from 200 - 500 hummingbirds - depending on the time of year.. I have been hosting on airbnb since July, 2009 and really love what this company has made possible. I have met so many wonderful people from around the world that I would never have met if I hadn't had this opportunity with airbnb! Some of our guests (especially the ones from Europe) have never seen a hummingbird before and here they get to see them up close - just a few feet from them as the birds "hum" around the feeders. We welcome you to come experience the peace and tranquility that our wonderful land has to offer.
