Description
The Space

Our home is our refuge and we have decided to share it with like minded people that crave an experience of serenity away from everyday stress. You will enter the yard through the Red Tory gate into our lush Zen garden and total privacy. You will find everything you need to make your stay a calming experience..you may even feel as if you've been transported to a zen retreat center although you are very close to shopping, dining, golf, the redwoods and the beach. We are conveniently located on a main street in Rio Del Mar so we have some street noise. We have buffered the street noise with lush landscaping, a tall redwood fence, and double paned windows, however if you are very sensitive to intermittent traffic noise during certain times of the day, our home may not suit you. You are welcome to park in the driveway or the other parking space in front of the fence.

Guest Access

Our home has been divided into two separate living spaces. The main living quarters, which is for our guests includes: Large living room with radiant heat fire place, dining area, gourmet kitchen, laundry area, one garden view bedroom with private bath and walk in closet, one patio view bedroom with closet and hallway bathroom. The entrance deck as well as the patio off the kitchen and bedroom are also available for outdoor dining, sunning or just enjoying being outdoors. We stay in the attached apartment when guest are in our home.

Otherwise, we will leave you to enjoy your stay.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is unique in that our home is close to so many wonderful attractions. We are only a forty minute drive south to Monterey Peninsula and forty five minutes to Carmel. Going north we are are forty minutes to Silicon Valley and ninety minutes to San Francisco. Their is an upscale shopping center (Deer Park) that you can easily walk to that includes a gourmet full service grocery store, Deluxe Foods, as well as many great restaurants, casual as well as fine dining..There are two beauty salons, a shoe store, full service Eye glasses store, yoga & pilates studio..etc... Seascape Golf Club is a stones throw away..Very close by in Aptos Village you can experience the amazing redwood forest of Nizene Marks state park with walking, hiking and biking trails....our beautiful beaches are about a miles walk if you are in shape for a pretty steep hill coming back. Santa Cruz and Capitola have their own unique sites and offerings....a day in either or both communities would be interesting and enjoyable. There is so much to do and see in our county, you would need to be here for several months to experience even half of it.

Getting Around

If you don't have a car or a bike you can catch a local bus close by that can take you north or south. Of course you can always call Uber or a cab.

About Victoria & Buff
Visit Profile
Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
