This is a stand-alone cottage on a 20 acre intentional community. It has an open floor plan with full kitchen, full bath, one queen bed and 3 twin beds. It is excellent for families and small groups. We are only 15 minutes from downtown Santa Cruz, but the land feels secluded and peaceful.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the cottage and the hiking trail that leads to the top of the property. Please do not disturb the residents and other guests in other structures.

Interaction with guests

I am available as needed. I will check in with you over message before you arrive and periodically if you are here for a few days. I can be reached via message or text and am often on the land.

Other things to note

We are fortunate enough to have both a well and a spring on our land. The spring water that we provide for drinking is excellent! Unfortunately, the well water is high in iron. Some guests have complained about the smell of the water coming from the faucets.

We have good wifi, but cell service is spotty at best.

The roosters will wake you up! You may want to bring earplugs if you are sensitive.

This space is absolutely lovely! We were able to stay in two of the listings on Kari Lynn's property. Both nights were so pleasant and peaceful, and Kari Lynn was very kind. Would definitely recommend.

Cute place with enough space and good location to get to local fare. Also the kitchen is a bonus for cooking breakfast thanks!

Very easy and quick to get to town from this secluded spot, great if you are out and about all day and need a spot to end the day.

The cottage is located in a quiet and peaceful location with another cabin and a yurt on the property. Kari was an attentive host and provided extra amenities not listed (i.e. spring water and coffee).
