Hello! Trees. Flowers. Bees. Birds. Views. Located a few miles from several hiking trails. Twenty minutes from the beach. We have one of the most green listings. We do have 5 bar cell reception and blazing fast internet that works inside the house and outside on the patios. We have a small orchard, sprawling lawns, 75 roses, Australian plant garden, expansive veggie patch, a hot tub, and a bocce court. Kindly read house rules and entire listing before contacting us. Thank you.

The space
Hello! Kindly review the house rules before sending us a message with the purpose of your trip. We respond quickly and want to ensure we have a space that fits your needs for your stay.

Please check out the photos on my other listing of the same house (in my profile called "hummingbird hill pinball room").

We have a green home high on a mountain in Ben Lomond. We have lawns, an orchard, pool table, and a bocce court. Lots of places to relax outside and take in the views. We love our hummingbirds. The pup and chickens are charming. Your room and bathroom are simple, clean, and have a view. In your room, you can expect a comfortable queen bed, a new 4k smart tv, a dresser from the '20s, fast wifi, freshly painted walls, and new carpet (2019). You're welcome to lightly use the kitchen, but don't encourage feast preparation. You may use the hot tub. We are happy to give suggestions of local shops, hiking trails, and restaurants you might not find on your own. This is a paradise for mountain bikers and hikers. We are close to beaches, bars, nightlife, restaurants, grocery stores, unique shops, and historic downtowns. However, our house feels incredibly (wonderfully) disconnected.

This is our full time home and we are a little more picky about how it’s treated as compared to other listings. If your not comfortable with the house rules or think it may not be a good fit, please do not book.

Guest access
Your private room, access to the two bathrooms (which can be shared), pool table room, two huge decks, many garden spaces, all the things that make our place unique.

Other things to note
Our place is all about the amenities, views, proximity to local activities. I know you will feel totally relaxed and at home. Our friends who leave here realize the benefit of staying with us- we are a house that we love to live in. We work to make beautiful, it is not a "rental". You might see/hear us blowing leaves, cutting lawns, processing firewood or doing maintenance work.

The house has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The main bathroom upstairs is between our two guest rooms and is shared if both rooms are booked. There is a second bathroom downstairs for use in case the upstairs is in use. We have a bathroom in our bedroom, so we do not often use the other two bathrooms.

During your stay
Up to you. We both work (have got to keep those bird feeders filled), so sometimes we do not see guests much. Other times, we have made amazing friendships with people from all over the world! We are open-minded and will make you feel comfortable.
