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 three young children. 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 Sonoma County

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.

The Haven Is Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the little piece of Heaven in Jenner. It did not disappoint. The peaceful quiet on the deck watching the humming birds, the long soaks in the hot tub, and snuggling by the fire made for a perfect weekend. We are already planning our next trip.

A place I will never forget

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at The Haven for my 50th birthday weekend and I can’t think of any other place that could have been more perfect. If you want to take your favorite person with you and disappear for a few days, this is where you should go. The second we arrived at the cabin, we felt relaxed and time just stood still. It was so private it felt like we were the only two people in the world. The cabin has a rustic feel but with modern conveniences. Having no wifi was actually a blessing – less distractions allowed for quality time together to enjoy our peaceful surroundings. I will always remember this birthday, being surrounded by trees, listening to humming birds, watching the fog roll in, relaxing in the hot tub, drinking wine on the deck, hiking down to Blind Beach, and having a great dining experience at River’s End. It was everything I had hoped for.

Loved the Haven!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the most relaxing weekend at the Haven. Comfy accommodations, peace and quiet, lovely walks, a short drive to beach access, and secluded clean and bubbly hot tub! We will be returning as soon as possible! If you like privacy and quiet, the Haven is the place to escape to!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights to celebrate our anniversary and had a great time. We loved the fenced-in backyard for the dog, and the secluded hot tub was awesome as well. The open floor plan and wrap around deck makes the house feel much larger than it really is - plenty of room to stretch out. We also enjoyed seeing the little bunnies run around out back every morning (luckily they were too quick for the dog). The house is also a short walk from a small store and a few restaurants, as well as a short drive from several beaches on both the Russian river and the ocean.
