With a geodesic dome loft & a large deck in the trees, you'll feel like you're in a tree house in the woods. We have been listing with airbnb since July '09 and have had the most reservations of any of their listings! So you've got to plan ahead if you want to stay in the Mushroom. Since we book so far in advance, if you want to stay here, check our other listing, the Hummingbird Haven:

The mushroom dome is a very unique place. From the 16 Airbnb’s stayed during my travels in California this is my favourite. Kitty was very warm and welcoming. There were plenty of things inside the dome to do and watching hummingbirds feed was a special highlight. Definitely…

We only had one day but we wished we'd stayed a week or more. You switch off the moment you arrive. The mushroom dome is cozy and has everything you could need. We cooked on the BBQ and had dinner on the terrace under the stars. Over at Kitty and Michael's house, hummingbirds…

Interaction with guests
I almost always interact with our guests. I love to make them feel welcome and at home, show them the hummingbirds and share my knowledge of the great places to go in our beautiful area. Let me know if you don't want to interact with me and I'll leave you alone quickly. ; )
