About Carrie Kozubal

We are Sonoma County locals who love to celebrate living in one of the most spectacular places on the planet with our kids. Though we are not able to spend nearly as much time at the coast as we would like to, we are happy to share this little piece of paradise with our guests.

Carrie Kozubal purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Carrie Kozubal chose Jenner

We both love being near the ocean, and knew that we would live at the coast 'someday.' We were not in the market for a house, much less a vacation home, when Carrie visited this home with a friend and fell in love with it. When we found out a short time later that it would be available to purchase, we jumped at the opportunity. We were just in the right place at the right time.

What makes this cottage unique

The most special part of The Haven to us is the spirit/mojo/vibe of the place. The home was designed and built by an architect who had owned this land for many years before building the house as his own retreat, so it was built with an incredible awareness of/sensitivity to the surroundings. It is private, intimate, relaxing, and invigorating.

We love sitting in the hot-tub at night (especially in the rain), and listening to the waves crashing and the stream rushing by. We love having breakfast in the morning and wine and cheese in the afternoon with the hummingbirds.

We love that this is a place that our dogs and kids enjoy as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Blessings to you and to this beautiful space. Today is my birthday and I am so grateful for this sanctuary to realign myself in divine rebirth. This is truly a magical spot on the planet. I was happy to see QuanYin here--infinate mother of compassion--and the hummingbirds--eternal messangers of true love and joy--they are my constant companions of comfort. Thank you for the warm water and fresh air. You hold a sacred place here.

Lovely, cozy, peaceful getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The Haven was the perfect getaway place. Every detail was thought of and we felt very well treated. We hope to return again! We loved the hot tub in the woods, and the warm sunshine on the deck. Perfect way to celebrate our 10th anniversary.

The highlight of our trip

  • 5 of 5

We did a lot of enjoyable and exciting things in Jenner and the surrounding area; however, the highlight of our long weekend was most certainly the Haven. The extra touches and attention to detail did not go unnoticed, and the beauty of the property, with the many different types of native plants, flowers, and wildlife to enjoy them (especially the hummingbirds) made this a very special place.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two-night stay at The Haven. The house was clean, quiet, and the amenities were very well thought out. Everything we needed to be able to cook and relax was provided. Loved morning coffee on the wrap around deck, surrounded by hummingbirds. We hope to return soon!

3 Nights of peaceful rest and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

The Jenner Haven is amazing! I stayed several days including the 4th of July and enjoyed relaxing on the deck, bbq, and making meals. The fog in the morning and evening are beautiful, the birds and wildlife, a place to unwind. I will be coming back again and again. Thank you.

The Perfect Property in the Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place Carrie & John have made of their appropriately named Haven. If you are looking for a secluded quiet space in one of the most beautiful places in Sonoma I highly recommend you consider their retreat. The only sounds were that of the various birdsongs about. The amenities were perfect for our long weekend needs. Heck I didn't even need to bring my cocktail shaker and jigger measure ;-). From the bedding, to the bath, to the kitchen to the hot tub, everything wanted and needed was there to make for that perfect retreat. Oh and Carrie is correct regarding the top bedroom, being a skinny limber millennial is helpful for access. We didn't need it for our use, just good to know if you are considering hosting three people at The Haven.
