The 'Ohana House is a cozy, private apartment, perfect for a couple. It comes with bath, laundry, kitchenette, internet, and TV. The 'Ohana House is located on a quiet country road a mile from downtown Nevada City. Come visit!

The space

The 'Ohana House is nestled in a cozy hollow, yet gets plenty of sun. The space is modern, clean and fresh, with a cute kitchen and small dining area, a desk/office area, sitting area, bedroom area, and bath with a custom tile shower. There is a European washer/dryer in the unit, and a small outdoor breakfast area that overlooks that back yard.

Guest access

The 'Ohana House is conveniently located to many of Nevada City's attractions:
-1 mile walk to town, where you'll find great restaurants, shopping, music, and theater.
- 10 minute walk to a local convenience market to pick up a paper, snacks, beer, wine, etc.
-Across the street from an access point to the Hirshman Trail
- Short 4 mile drive to the Yuba River (49 Crossing)
- Short 3 mile drive to the trailhead of the Independence Trail.
- 53 mile drive to Truckee/Sierra ski hills

Interaction with guests

I like to be on hand to greet each guest when they arrive, as the 'Ohana House is a separate structure a few hundred feet away from the main house, however, full instructions for self check-in will be provided. I appreciate the opportunity to chat briefly, give you a tour of features of the 'Ohana House, and answer any questions. After you settle in, it's likely you won't see me at all, unless we meet in passing. However, great conversation with travelers is always appreciated. :)

Please be aware that check-in is generally between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. on your arrival date. While other arrangements can generally be made, if you are unable to respect an agreed upon timeframe, please consider staying at a motel, as extremely late arrivals impact my family and neighbors. If you are arriving late, please thoroughly read the arrival instructions prior to pulling into the driveway, as there are three structures on the property, and respecting the other occupants in very important.

Other things to note

The 'Ohana House is up a flight of stairs, and may not be a good fit for people with accessibility issues. The 'Ohana House is perfect for two people, more than that would not be comfortable. While we love children, this is not the best place for them. Infants are welcome.

Amy's place was a great fit for us! She was friendly, and easy to communicate with - we will absolutely rent the space again.

Staying at the Ohana house is like a luxury treehouse in the forest! You have all the comforts in this charming apartment, with a view of trees all around. This custom-designed unit has unique lines with vaulted ceilings and insets. It felt an architect's getaway cabin! Amy keeps it tidy and offers homey touches like spice jars and olive oil. She is respectful of your space yet warmly available for questions about sightseeing, dining or anything at all. The location cannot be beat! It's just a couple minutes from the historic and quaint downtown Nevada City, with its gourmet and organic cafes, wine bars and cultural offerings. You can walk to nearby forest trails, and it's an easy 20-minute drive to prime Yuba River swimming. Ohana House is quiet and serene for a restorative getaway. I took a personal writing retreat, but it would also be romantic for a couple's getaway.

Amy was very welcoming as was her home. She was extremely flexible with our unplanned late arrival! The location is beautiful with easy access to wooded trails for running or walking as well as nearby Nevada City and highway 49 which leads to several nearby activities.

Had a great time staying at the ohana house. Amy was very nice and welcoming and gave a lot of advice about the town and places to go. The place itself is very well kept, the kitchen has all the appliances you'd need for a long stay. Very cozy space. It's a very short drive to the center of Nevada City, but nestled in a space that feels remote and private.

The Ohana house was everything we expected and more! Amy was extremely accommodating with our travel schedule. Home was clean and comfortable and had every amenity you could think of and then some! When we visit the area again there is a 100% chance we stay here!

I am an architect and a writer. I have a day job as a librarian. I am working on writing a novel, raising two (marginally) respectful and (completely) magical girls, and keeping the peace in a busy house. When ever I can, I get out in the trees and walk slowly and sip the mountain air like dark coffee. No cream. After spending over thirty winters in northern Minnesota and North Dakota, I can't get enough of the beautiful California weather, whatever it is on any given day.
