We are here in Gilroy Ca, on a rural 2 acres just outside of town, further up our road is Coyote Lake to go boating and fishing and Harvey Bear park to go hiking and horse riding. Santa Cruz is a 45 min drive West over hwy 152 and San Jose is 30 min North on 101 and keep going a bit more and you will be in San Francisco.
Here at home we raise several different kinds of lives stock. Goats for meat and milk, Sheep for meat and wool and eventually milk, Pigs for meat, Rabbits for meat and hide, Chickens, Ducks and Quail for meat and eggs. We have a garden and small orchard with nearly a dozen fruit trees of different kinds : loquat, a few apples, plums, apricot, peach, fig, persimmons and my favorite the pomegranate! We process everything ourselves using ancestral techniques and love to share and learn with others.
Id say the main draw back here is the traffic noise but beyond that, We are quite lucky to have very a green and Id say an oasis of a property, with multiple large palms trees surrounding the pool area and a large weeping willow tree in the main yard/sheep pasture. At the NE corner of the property is a very large oak tree, it is majestic and with the tipi door open to the East the big oak is the first thing you'll see every morning besides the suns rays!
The entire Northern property line is rowed with 60ft tall redwood trees and there are a smattering of citrus trees around to boot!
The freezer is stocked with in house meat, the BBQ is hot, the pool is cool, come relax after a day on the trails!

The Big Oak
Our hosts were so kind and welcoming, and the land was beautiful. They invited us to help milk the goats, and to pick grapes and apples to eat. The oak tree was beautiful, and the setting serene. I would highly recommend staying here!

The Big Oak
Super welcoming hosts!
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful evening on Jamie’s property! We slept on a bed in the back of our car and were very pleased with how secluded it felt and the shade of the huge oak tree. We were very grateful that we could book the accommodation last minute as we purposefully left most of our trip unplanned. Jamie and her family (and all the friendly dogs!!) are some of the most welcoming, kind, and positive individuals we have met on our travels so far. Meeting them was truly a highlight of our trip. (The wood fire hot tub was definitely up there as well) I would recommend this accommodation to anyone passing through!
