“Ummm can you guys adopt me? I'm so glad to have discovered this beautiful cabin! It's just beautiful, exactly what I needed for a retreat to write and hike and relax. Thank you SO much for the fully equipped kitchen, all the little things I needed to cook breakfast, comfy bed, bathroom stocked with absolutely everything I could have forgotten and more. It was spotlessly clean and open; just the right approach for a space like this. I will be back!”
Studio cottage located on 16 acres just 5 miles from some of the nicest beaches in NorCal. Wild roses and lavender greet you at the front door and a sunny patio off the back is perfect for morning coffee. At night you will be charmed to sleep by the songs of frogs and the occasional barn owl. From here it is a short drive to; hike in the redwoods, picnic on the beach, strolling in the town of Half Moon Bay or make the drive to SF, San Jose or Santa Cruz. There is no WiFi and we call it perfect!
“We stayed at Joanne's place for a quick weekend get away to get out of the city. The location was great, close to local restaurants which were about a 10-15 minute drive away. We reserved a tour of Harley Farms for the next day and were glad to find that Joanne's was only a short drive down the road! We brought along our puppy and Joanne had a water bowl, food bowl, and towel ready for her to use. Joanne's was clean, cozy, and the breakfast pastries from the local bakery were amazing! This is a great spot to unwind, relax, and visit the beautiful beaches along the northern California coast.”
Currently California has strict orders regarding this Covad pandemic. We have been and will continue to do as our Governor requests requiring our guests to comply with these orders as well. La Honda is in the Redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains, 25-45 miles from San Francisco and San Jose, 10 miles to the coast! Artists, musicians, technologists and many others live together harmoniously. From the Redwood forest to the Pacific Ocean our home inspires contemplation and competition.
“This AirBnB experience was like what I imagine AirBnB was intended to be way back before people were buying houses just to rent on AirBnB. This is a spare room in Donna's quirky, charismatic house nestled in the hills of La Honda. Donna was full of hospitality and it really felt like my best friend Rachel and I were staying at an Aunt's house or something like that. Donna had breakfast materials, maps, and thoughtful advice ready for us to make the most of our time in La Honda. We enjoyed the setting -- so unique! Be sure to enjoy the porch upstairs for sunset! I recommend a trip down to San Gregorio general store for live music on the weekends and super kind, funny bartenders who make incredible cocktails that will make you question whether you're in the middle of the country or in an upscale bar in the city. If you're looking for a really authentic AirBnB experience where you get to meet locals and see what it's really like to live in a place like La Honda, this is it!”
