About Kitty

We live on 10 beautiful acres of sun, oak forest, redwood groves and gardens with 2 goats, a parrot, 2 cats, a small dog, 9 chickens and from 200 - 500 hummingbirds - depending on the time of year.

I have been hosting on Airbnb since July 2009, and really love what this company has made possible. I have met so many wonderful people from around the world that I would never have met if I hadn't had this opportunity with Airbnb! Some of our guests (especially the ones from Europe) have never seen a hummingbird before and here they get to see them up close - just a few feet from them as the birds "hum" around the feeders.

We welcome you to come experience the peace and tranquility that our wonderful land has to offer.

Kitty has been recognized by Airbnb as one of the longest-standing Superhosts, as seen here: "Celebrating Our Superhosts Around the World."

Kitty has also been recently interviewed by VOX which can be read here: "What’s it like to own the most-visited Airbnb in the world."
