About the property

6 People MAX PLEASE! No Exceptions! NO PETS PLEASE!


Children over 10 are preferred at the ranch. Not a house for toddlers!

The Red Feather Ranch is where you'll find our old farm house. She sets upon a hill, is surrounded by mature trees and centrally located with immediate easy access to Highway 101 and 156, and only moments to the beach.

The ranch is secure, gated and fenced.

Very clean and comfortable, well appointed kitchen, all that you need for a superb vacation. Enjoy listening to the hummingbirds, red tail hawks and blue jays while taking in the Fremont Peak views from your private back porch. Pick fresh veggies and fruit from your own garden box, when in season.

Relax around the outside fire pit or inside near 'Old Faithful', a very competent wood burning stove (the farm houses only main, but reliable source of heat). Also an EdenPure heater is available for your use.

The property houses a few really nice and cool chickens. All colors and flavors of hens and a couple of roosters.

There is also a dog, cats and one horse that live here. Please do not allow children to chase the animals that live here.

Ride your horse, mountain bike or jog from the property to spectacular Manzanita park where there is 100's of acres to explore. It's heavenly! The park sports magnificent ocean and valley views. A baseball diamond is also present on the grounds.

Thank you for finding us on VRBO!

About Tisha Warren

To own property in the Monterey Bay has been a long time dream for us both. Don't ever give up on those dreams, they will come true. Ours did!

Tisha Warren purchased this farmhouse in 2009

Why Tisha Warren chose Prunedale

Location, location, location and the views are incredible. We absolutely love this area of the fabulous Monterey Bay. Did I mention the location?

This is Paradise!

What makes this farmhouse unique

The Red Feather Ranch has great views of the surrounding mountains and peaks of the lovely Monterey Bay and San Benito counties. The sunrise and sunsets are some of the most beautiful we've seen. The peace and quiet of the property is just amazing.

There is public transporttion just minutes from the ranch with easy access.

Wonderful Vacation !

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 spent 4days for New Year's eve.

When we arrived, it was a little bit chilly , so it was nice that Tisha lifted up the fire for us in the living room and we had enough supply of wood for fireplace.

I like the whale shaped humidifier on the fireplace.

The house was old but very clean and well kept and comfortable.

Tisha was so nice and attentive to our every need.

I would recommend this place for a family vacation place for whom like country style life and want to have more communication between family members at a comfortable ranch.

Thank you Tisha for sharing your farmhouse with us.

It will be remembered for a long times.

Charming, quiet, and perfect

  • 5 of 5

being from Salinas for generations we knew where everything was and the house is the perfect location to get to anywhere we needed to go. So take it from the natives - red feather ranch is ideal.

Red Feather Ranch

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the farmhouse. The location was perfect for us to go to the Moss Landing Street Fair, and also for our day trip to Pacific Grove where we found a wonderful yarn shop. The feel of the property was very relaxing from sitting on the porch and the back deck enjoying the sunshine to watching the chickens, Lucy the horse and of course the ever present Wyatt who was always trying to get us to play ball with him. Thank you Tisha for allowing us to stay in your farmhouse. We hope to come back next year. Thanks, Hawley,Sandy and Dolores

Relaxing weekend close to Monterey and Moss Landing

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lot our stay at Tisha's ranch. The house was perfect for 6, kitchen well equipped, confortable beds, 2 bathrooms. We loved to sit down in the rocking chairs on the front porch in late afternoon and to enjoyed our coffee on the backyard porch in the morning while watching the view and the succulents in the garden.

It was a bit chilly and we had some rain on Saturday so it was nice that Tisha lit up the fire for us in the living room. Just make sure you bring slippers and crocks so that you can easily switch shoes between the outside and the inside.

We enjoyed a lot the beaches near Moss Landing and went to get fresh fish at Phil's fish market (thanks Tisha for great recommendations!!). The tours with Elkhorn Slough Safari were full, but we'll come back to do that next time! The gallery at Haute Enchilada was fun, especially with its videos of Owls niching near by, we'll try the cafe next time!
