The SpaceOur one bedroom cottage located in the Santa Cruz Mountains on a gated property, is a beautiful and comfortable place to relax and unwind. It sleeps 2 - 4 people, with 2 in the queen bed in the bedroom and 1 or 2 in the (full size) fold-out hide-a-bed in the living room There is also a single pad with bedding available for inside or outside deck sleeping. Inside the cottage there is a large flat screen TV with cable, a DVD player, and a selection of movies and DSL Internet. There is also a stereo system and a collection of CD's. We have a full kitchen with an antique gas stove, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, an assortment of tea's, coffee, basic condiments, and the tap water from our well is safe and excellent to drink. There is a wood burning stove in the living room with plenty of wood and the walls are adorned with vintage rock & roll posters. On the deck we have a jacuzzi hot tub, a gas barbecue, and patio furniture. There are large, clear skylights that afford a view of the redwoods while offering beautiful lighting. All linens and towels are provided. Adjacent to the cottage are two hammocks and a Chartres labyrinth in the middle of a redwood circle. For travelers this is the best of both worlds. A cozy cottage nestled in the redwood forest, 10 minutes off of HWY 1 (Pacific Coast Highway), the main vein to Monterey, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Big Sur, Capitola and Santa Cruz, and 6 minutes from HWY 17. People come from all over the world to experience the Pacific Coast specifically the Monterey Bay area. It is an area rich in history. Here you will find world-class art, music, cuisine, golf, surfing, sightseeing, hiking, biking, sunbathing, whale watching, birding, fishing, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, and so much more. You can spend the day engaged in a variety of activities, physical and/or cultural. However you spend your day, you can return home to your private cottage nestled in the quiet redwoods. The weather here is excellent. Winters are mild we average 25” of rainfall a year. Summers can be warm but delightful. The weather is nearly perfect. Fog burns off at the ocean early enough to make the beaches comfortable all day. The Santa Cruz Mountains are home to Sequoia Sempervirens commonly known as a Redwood Tree. They are native only to a specific part of Pacific Coast region. Come and visit our amazing part of the world and experience something special about the California Coast. It is truly amazing to stand on the labyrinth in the middle of 200 foot redwoods. There are 4 or 5 excellent restaurants within 15 minutes of our home. The caretaker/owner Jay and Linda live on the property, along with 2 young cats. We are excited about sharing this slice of heaven nestled in the redwoods. Interaction with GuestsWe enjoy meeting our guests when they arrive, showing them the cottage and answering any questions they may have. We then give our guests their privacy however remain available should they have additional questions.

The SpaceFeels like Tuscany in the Santa Cruz mountains. There is one bedroom and one bathroom, outdoor space and a small kitchenette. Our guest house is a completely separate two-floor structure from the main house, 692 square feet in total not including the outside area. The kitchenette, eating area, bathroom and living room are located on the ground floor while the bedroom is on the tree house-like second floor. Beautiful views from every room. Full disclosure: Fog in town can often obscure the ocean, although the mountains are always lovely. We are typically above the fog line, and if we do get fogged in our area is the first to burn off. Good for solo traveler or couple. Max 2 people please (no exceptions). While there is a small fridge, two burner stove, counter top convection oven with toaster and microwave, the guest house is not suitable for dinner parties or entertaining. Guests have their own propane BBQ located on the patio. We also supply spices, olive oil, vinegar, ground coffee and an assortment of herbal and caffeine teas. The kitchenette has both a conventional coffee machine and a french press as well as an automatic kettle. The upstairs bedroom has a new gel memory foam Queen-sized bed. The bed does not have a baseboard, so very tall guests can stretch out their legs comfortably. Guest AccessGuests have their own parking space (suitable for one car) on the property within steps of the guest house. Guests do not have access to the main house or the main garden area. The guest house has its own outdoor patio with outdoor furniture.

We also have two dogs and four cats that roam the property including a big Bernese Mountain Dog and a small English Fox Terrier. The NeighborhoodWe live on a private road. There are other properties on the road, but our place is very secluded. Watch for deer, rabbits, coyotes, hawks, quail and the occasional majestic mountain lion. Getting AroundAccessible by car. Roads around here are popular with cyclists, but are steep and challenging. No public transit. Other Things to NoteWe do require a filled in Airbnb profile with picture before we will accept reservation requests. Please make sure to tell us a little bit about yourself and your traveling companion and what brings you to our neck of the woods. Our guest house is registered with the County of Santa Cruz for the purposes of local Transient Occupancy Tax. Our Transient Occupancy Registration Certificate number is CO00173.

The smaller bedroom has a set of bunk beds, a desk and a big deck off of it. For your comfort and convenience there's a small microwave oven, coffee maker, utensils, plates, glasses, cups, and a filtered water pitcher, everything you need to prepare a quick breakfast or snack. Satelite TV and WiFi connectivity are also available. Cell phone reception here is good also (AT&T & Verizon). Our home is situated on a sunny ridge top with views of the surrounding hills, Redwood forests with incredible sunsets and a huge deck to take it all in. Plus lots of outdoor living space including a spectacular bar area and outdoor living room, or sit out by the Koi pond and be lulled by the sound of falling water. The beautiful garden is featured in the community's annual spring garden tour. Check out some of my works on "Ridgetop Studio" on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). Your room has a comfy queen bed, sitting area, and small private deck with forest views. The second room, separated by a hallway and bathroom, has a set of bunk beds and a desk.

There's a queen sized bed on the outdoor deck if you'd like to sleep under the stars, the night sky is quite spectacular up here. We want you to feel welcome, this isn't a chain hotel after all. Part of the fun of airbnb'g is meeting new friends! Bring your favorite beverage(s), the outdoor bar area is a great place to spend summer evenings, getting to know new friends and sharing ideas about what to do next. We're natives here and happy to share our insights based on your desires. For convenience there's a great market with a wonderful selection of prepared gourmet foods to go, a great butcher counter, and local wines only 2 miles away. Speaking of wines there are several great boutique wineries located within just a few miles including Burrell School, Loma Prieta, Silver Mountain, David Bruce, MJA and several more. While only 20 minutes to downtown Los Gatos at the Southwestern end of the Santa Clara (aka: Silicon) Valley the Loma Prieta area is rural with towering Redwoods and open spaces. To get to the beaches in the Santa Cruz area; simply release your parking brake and you are on the way, its all downhill from here. We are approximately 13 miles from Capitola Beach and you only need to turn left out of our driveway to get there as the road we live off of goes directly to Capitola. Capitola is a funky little beach town that borders Santa Cruz to the south with excellent dinning, shopping, nightlife and surfing. Capitola Beach itself is an excellent place to take the family for a day of fun in the sun as it is well protected and Capitola Village is steps away. Turning right out of our driveway takes you towards the Silicon Valley and all it has to offer. 12 miles from our home and you are in Downtown Los Gatos, the best little town in Silicon valley with great dinning, shopping and nightlife. If you have business to attend to during your stay, the heart of Silicon Valley's technology industry is approx. 30 minutes away but of course you can be fully "connected" or disconnected here if you like Both San Francisco and Big Sur are easy day trips. San Francisco is 70 miles to the north, Big Sur 90 miles south. Monterey and all it has to offer is about an hour's drive south on California's Hwy 1 with Big Sur another 45 minutes drive south of Monterey. Don't miss the world-class Monterey Bay Aquarium. Hwy 1 south of Monterey is one of the most scenic drives in the world and the Big Sur area is magical. Nature lovers will appreciate Big Basin and Henry Cowell State Parks as well, both renowned for their old growth Redwood groves. If you have never been in an old growth Redwood grove, it’s a truly spiritual experience. While we have lots of beautiful Redwoods on the property they are mere pups in comparison even at over 100 ft. tall. If you're a golfer, besides Spanish Bay, Pebble Beach, and Spyglass in the Monterey area, close by is one of the best courses anywhere; Pasatiempo Golf Club and the DeLaVeaga Golf course is just down the road, which incidentally also boasts one of the best Frisbee golf courses to be found. For family fun there's The Santa Cruz Boardwalk with a great wooden roller coaster plus many other rides and attractions. Roaring Camp Railroad with trains and a zip line tour of the Redwood forest's canopy. "The Mystery Spot" is always a hit with the kids. World-class surfing, sailing, fishing and whale watching are all within a half-hour's drive. If you’re a Mountain Biker, there’s world-class single tracks in near-by Soquel Demonstration forest. Of course if all you want to do is relax and decompress just hang out here by the pond and let the sounds of flowing water wash your stress away. Surfers, great breaks like Pleasure Point, The Hook, and Steamer's Lane are all close by. Car lovers and gear heads this is heaven! Laguna Seca Race Track is less than an hour away. This is a perfect base to take in the Monterey Historics, Concours Italiano and the Pebble Beach Concours D'élégance. The way down to the Monterey Bay from our house is Soquel/San Jose Rd. S/SJ Rd. is great drive/ride, with beautiful scenery and wonderful twisties for those of us who enjoy a well executed apex. Motorcyclists will love the ride on Soquel/San Jose Rd. and many others we can suggest. The weather in the Santa Cruz Mountains is about as perfect as you can find. Summer brings cool foggy early mornings followed by warm sunny days and cool evenings. It almost never rains in the summer here so no worries there, make your plans. Winter, the temps are moderate, with frost only occasionally, but it can rain very hard at times. Spring and Fall are glorious, our favorite times of the year. Lots of fall color in the yard and surrounding area. Spring brings a profusion of green and blossoms. No matter what time of year, it’s always a good idea to have a sweater or light jacket handy as the evenings can cool off quickly because of the costal influence (or as I like to say "our life giving fog"). Redwoods only thrive where there's regular fog. It is not unusual to see temps in the 80 - 90 range during the day and 60's in the evenings. We can also arrange for a couples massage on the deck if you're so inclined. My wife and I can whip up a family style dinner, an evening BBQ or we can have a guest chef prepare a wonderful candlelight dinner served under the stars. I'll bar tend, fixing up tasty cocktails to enjoy the sunset with. Want Breakfast? A lunch packed to go? Dinner? Whatever it is you would like to have or do while you are here let us know and we'll try to make it happen. We look forward to meeting you. Guest AccessGuests initially enter via our home's front door but there is a separate private entrance to the guest suite so you are free to come and go as you please. Guests are free to use the kitchen (there's an extra refrigerator in the garage too), and the entire yard including The Shark Bite (bar area, BYOB) and Sunset deck. We also encourage our guests to slow down and enjoy the yard, have your coffee out by the Koi pond or enjoy their favorite libation on the Sunset deck in the evening. Interaction with GuestsWe love to play host and share experiences with our guests. Usually we end up having evening drinks and enjoying appetizers with our guests, getting to know new people is the reason we do this. We can also help you with advice and directions like only locals can. We're happy to help you enjoy the area with where to go, what to see and do, where to eat and what to avoid. The NeighborhoodWhat we love about our neighborhood is that we don't live in a neighborhood. Our house sits on a sunny hill top surrounded by the Redwood forest with the closest neighbor's house a couple hundred yards away. While we live in a rural area, Silicon Valley is 15-20 minutes to the north and the Monterey Bay is 15 minutes to the south, great for business and pleasure. Levi Stadium is 40 minutes away. Getting AroundThere is no public transit available in the area, so if you are coming from afar, plan on renting a car. San Jose Airport - 40 minutes, SFO and Oakland airports - about an hour away (all times dependent on traffic conditions in Silicon Valley). Other Things to NoteOur little road (a meandoring 1/4 mile) is one-lane but has very little traffic so we toot our horn to warn others as we go up the road. If you do encounter another car there are places to pull off to pass. Usually the car going downhill must back-up to yield right-of-way but sometimes that's not practical so be courteous. We've lived here 19 years and I've encountered another car going to other way maybe a dozen times so no worries, just be aware and drive slowly and be courteous to our neighbors. There are no restaurants in the immediate area but Summit Center Store is near by and they have everything you may need from prepared meals, great deli sandwiches, an excellent butcher counter and a wonderful selection of our local wines.

      The SpaceOn a ridge in the Santa Cruz Mountains, private bedroom with a queen bed, cotton sheets, and comfortable furnishings, that looks out on a spectacular coastal view of Monterey Bay. Bathroom with tub and shower is right next to bedroom in your own wing. The four-acre property is close to walking trails that take you deep into a redwood forest, bike trails in the Soquel Demonstration Forest, or a 20-minute drive to the Santa Cruz coast. Wineries within a few miles in any direction. Amazing view that changes with the light and the weather. Bathroom with shower / tub next to bedroom. Must be able to navigate a few stairs (entryway and 3 steps down to the bedroom) and be OK with our cat Charcoal. Wireless internet. Satellite tv with basic cable. You won't hear traffic, instead you will hear the chickens next door. Private and quiet. Homey, casual living. You need a car to get here, no nearby public transportation. There's a store about 3 miles away that is open until 8 PM. A few restaurants are in the mountains. Most are either near the coast (Soquel, Capitola), south on Highway 17 to Scotts Valley, or north on 17 to Los Gatos (13 miles). The room is good for one or two people. If there is a third, there's an extra fee and they can sleep on the comfortable living room sofa, for short visits. Other notes: You can take route 17 from San Jose or Santa Cruz to the Summit exit to get here, or to/from Santa Cruz area, you can take an easy and pleasant back road and avoid the "fishhook" and 17 altogether. It's 45 min - 1 hour from here to the Monterey Peninsula, Carmel, and Pacific Grove. Guest AccessKitchen, living room, and deck access. Hot tub may be on, or you may request it be turned on. Extra towels provided. Interaction with GuestsI chat with them a little, answer questions, find out about who they are, and pretty much leave them on their own. I may be here in a different part of the house, sharing the kitchen and deck, or I may be out and they have the entire downstairs to themselves. The NeighborhoodWant to get away from traffic, urban noise, pollution? You'd never know you are within reach of the SF Bay Area and Silicon Valley, even though you can get here easily. This is a quiet, natural setting with spectacular views, peaceful neighbors, and entertaining wildlife - birds, including wild turkeys sometimes, deer, next door chickens, owls hooting at night. Nice place to hang out or as a base for attending weddings or other events in the mountains or at the coast. You will not be hearing traffic, city noises, loud neighbors. Space to breathe. Easy 40 minute hike among redwoods within walking distance. Cyclists and hikers also enjoy the Soquel Demonstration Forest, nearby. Wineries are open on weekends, some of them during the week as well. Good to call ahead for specific wineries as some of them have limited tasting room hours. You'll find a restaurant list for the area in the guest room, along with brochures and maps about local towns. Everything from casual to world-class cuisine options are available for dining in Los Gatos or at the coast in Capitola or Aptos. Getting AroundNo public transportation - you must have a car or other independent vehicle. There is plenty of room to park (outdoors). Airport shuttles come up here, for a substantial fee. Rental car usually a better choice. There's some uber service, though I haven't tried it. Other Things to NoteYou might want to plan your food and bring it with you, or you can drive down to the local store before 8 PM. Also there are great restaurants within 20-30 minutes. I can offer light breakfast items like coffee, tea, cereal, usually juice or fruit, and toast. We can confirm based on your preferences.

      The SpaceIf you're looking for respite and inspiration, Welcome to Voss Gardens! Or as our guests call it "Foodie Heaven!" (More photos on Instagram! @ #vossgardens) We are casual and chic here in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Perched in the redwoods, our home is an architectural wonder built by our family of engineers and artists back in the eclectic seventies. Over the years an assemblage of art, antiques and curios has charmed its way into the spacious rooms and lofts. We offer 6 acres of quiet ambiance for guests and business travelers. Surrounded by wildlife, our year round Organic Gardens sustain the not-so-starving Artists in Residence at the Montalvo Center for the Arts in Saratoga and also provide robust mountain grown greens for private healthy chefs in San Francisco. Although our location is central to all the area has to offer, you may just want to sit on one of the many decks and commune with the muse, ponder the profundities, finish that novel, play the piano, paint the landscape, breathe deeply.... Then for a break, you are -5 miles from Henry Cowell State Park, 28 miles from Big Basin State Park, both have stunning hiking and biking trails, -10 miles from the beach and all the wonderful weirdness that is Santa Cruz, -20 minutes from Silicon Valley,San Jose International Airport, and a myriad of metropolitan pleasures, -1 hour south of San Francisco, my favorite city in the world, -1 hour north of Monterrey/Carmel, -1 mile from a stunning old growth redwood, "The King of the Forest."(see Picture) Take a walk or bike ride from our house, and pass by a pony farm, historical markers, vineyards and old stagecoach and railroad routes. This little area of Glenwood is loaded with history. -64 bonded wineries within 20 minutes. If you like Pinot Noir this is your neck of the woods. We can accommodate up to 8 people but they must booked in separate listings. Because we have several rooms and price points, go to Eden's profile and find the 'SAME LOCATION" listing on the bottom or left of the page. Here you will find more reviews, photos and options. Please note: We charge extra for extra guests. Read the Details or contact us for special arrangements. We are flexible within reason. We are offering: -Room A-1 bedroom with private entrance and 1/2 bath, booked through this listing. The shower is shared so we look to manage shower times to make everyone comfortable. -Room B- spacious bedroom with private deck, shared bathroom and shower. Book it through "Peace and Quiet in the Mountains." -1 loft bedroom with shared bathroom and shower down a spiral staircase so be careful. Book it through " Mountain Haven Near Silicon Valley." -Minimally furnished "Your Moment of Zen" offers a meditatve space with a 3rd story deck with stunning view and option to sleep outside. We make every effort to maintain cleanliness. However, our mountain well water has a high mineral content and 40 years of buildup has left our facilities with a rusty looking surface that is extremely difficult to remove. We sanitize regularly and ask our guests to please keep this in mind. Consider it part of the charm of living in the mountains. With the California drought in its 4th year we ask guests to limit their showers to 5 minutes. Kitchen is generally not available but we can be very flexible. Hostess(that would be me) is a great cook and meal options featuring our world class produce can be arranged for an additional fee.(per person) Cooking classes featuring foraging for ingredients are also possibilities. Morning tea/coffee and a fresh baked goodie are complementary. $10/good old farm breakfast $15/ let's do lunch $15/ supper tray waiting for you in your room when you arrive. Just picked greens, hot dish, dessert. $30/ dinner, salad, soup, entree, dessert guests are encouraged to bring their own wine All meals are cash only. Gratuities are very acceptable. You can further taste our estate by visiting my blog,(search for "eatsbyeden") I've been somewhat remiss in posting lately but it has more witty tidbits, pictures and foodage. Or peek into the Voss Gardens magic on Instagram, #vossgardens. Happy Trails! Guest AccessPeace of mind, the gardens, decks, kitchen, living room and piano if you play.Full bathroom with shower is down the hall. A ping pong table is on our wish list. Interaction with GuestsPrivacy is always respected but we find getting to know our guests is one of the great perks of airbnb. Its up to you. The NeighborhoodWe revel in the quietness and natural beauty of our mountain home, just 10 minutes from the beach and an hour to San Fransisco. Getting AroundWe are 4 miles from the Scotts Valley Transit Station. Rides can be arranged. Other Things to NoteMeal options are offered at the bottom of the main listing. Our cuisine features what is fresh from our organic gardens. Read the reviews from happy foodies!

      The SpaceUnlike most homes in the Santa Cruz mountains, our little cottage is flooded with sunshine all day long. Every single window looks out onto the stunning landscape. We outfitted the home with brand new furniture in October 2013, and often wish we could stay there ourselves. The clawfoot bathtub is my favorite part of the house. The cottage shares the 90 acre property with 2 other houses, so even though you'll feel a million miles away from city life, you can still ask your neighbor for a cup of sugar. Guest Access90 acres of meadows and forest Telephone Full Kitchen Full Bathroom Private Bedroom There are 2 other homes on the property, so pretty please don't sit on their front porches *laugh*. You are welcome to walk all around the property and explore the hiking trails, but please keep out of the barns (there are 2). They aren't that interesting anyway (currently just used for storage). *Important note for Guests with dogs* One of the other houses on our property has a dog. Her name is Gretel and she is the sweetest, most excited to see you dog in the world. The only catch is, if you have a dog with you and go near her house...she feels a bit uncozy about that. Please take care when walking your dog by Gretel's house (the house at the end of the road) by not lingering by her fence too long. If Gretel comes to visit you at the Fairy Tale Cottage, she is totally fine there because she doesn't have a need to 'protect' it. We have had many guests come with dogs and never have a problem at the cottage. We have had an issue in the past, however, if the guest's dog comes into Gretel's space at her own house. Interaction with GuestsWe will leave you alone! In fact, you can't even see our house when you're inside the cottage. If you do want to pop over and say hello, that is absolutely fine. We have 2 young children (under age 3), so we will most likely be playing with bubbles or cleaning up toy trains. Most of the time we are home in the evenings, and enjoy having campfires after the kids go to bed. Feel free to join us if you see us outside! The NeighborhoodEvery time I get out of the car and take a deep breath, it smells like heaven and my shoulders relax. Country living at it's best. If you wan to go for a walk, roam around the Great Meadow ( you can see it from the cottage), or walk down past the barn and turn left to take a little stroll through some very old redwoods! Getting AroundYay for cars! You can technically ride your bike here (all flat roads from town), but, it is a bit scary because the cars aren't very good at sharing the road. Other Things to NoteWe do have the internet, but because of our mountain location, it isn't the best for streaming movies and such. It works for basic email, and is a bit spotty at times. This is usually a good thing when you're trying to be on vacation! *laugh* CHECK OUT: Pretty please turn off all the heaters when you go, and don't worry about locking the door. Just leave the keys on the kitchen table. We want your vacation to be lovely, so we will take care of cleaning as long as you promise do to your dishes and take any food that you purchased along with you before you leave *wink* (our trash can is very small and can't handle too much more than normal trash). Have a great time!

      The SpaceSpacious with lots of light, this 1-bedroom apartment is located in a quiet residential area in Scotts Valley. Grocery shopping, coffee shops, a library, movies, tennis courts, and dining are all a traffic-free 5-minutes away by car or 15-20 minute walking distance. This 2nd floor granny apartment is attached to our main home but has a private entrance and cozy outdoor deck area. The apartment is newly carpeted (Oct. 2014) and features: -- a large living room with digital cable TV -- free reliable wifi -- a fully-equipped kitchen (stove, oven, microwave, pantry, refrigerator, coffee maker, appliances, dishes, pots and pans etc.) -- a large bedroom with walk-in closet and computer desk -- full size sofa sleeper in living room -- a master bath with two sinks and a bath/shower combo -- a cute private outdoor porch/deck with a gas BBQ, bistro table and chaise for reading or napping - a great place to unwind, dine alfresco and plan your next day-trip and watch the sun go down. -- kitchen with pots,pans, dishes, condiments, utentials, mixing bowls etc. -- ground coffee and assorted teas (sugar, honey, creamer) -- Toiletries (soap, shampoo; toothpaste, body wash) You will have a designated parking spot in the driveway with easy access to the apartment via the backyard area of the main home - up a short set of stairs. (Note that access to the apartment is via an outdoor stairway). Henry Cowell State Park, with fabulous hiking, is only 10 minutes away in Felton, and if you continue on Highway 9 - you can visit another great state park - Big Basin, with its famous redwood trees and waterfalls. An easy 15-minute drive on Highway 17 will take you to the popular Beach Boardwalk area, the UCSC campus or downtown Santa Cruz, with its many brew pubs, coffee shops and eclectic shopping. A bit further are Wilder Ranch, Pescadero, and Half Moon Bay and San Francisco to the North; Capitola, Aptos, Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur to the South. Silicon Valley (Los, Gatos San Jose, Palo Alto) is 30 to 40 minutes away- so if you need to do some business while still being able to hit the beach nights and weekends - this apartment is an ideal launch point. If you have any special requests to make your stay more comfortable - please let us know. There is an adjacent smaller apartment that would be a great add-on rental if you are two couples or if you have additional group members that require their own lodging. Guest AccessYou will have your own private deck area with BBQ. Interaction with GuestsMy college-age son and I live in the adjoining home full-time, but keep busy and are often away from our home. We live a quiet lifestyle and will give lots of privacy during your stay. The NeighborhoodScotts Valley is a quiet town far enough away to leave behind the hub-bub of traffic and congestion of more populated areas - but with great freeway access to launch daytrips to the North or South. We have 3 full size grocery markets, drug stores, coffee shops (Peets, Starbucks and Surf City Roasters), a renowned skatepark and a fabulous seasonal farmers market on Saturday mornings. Though there is not really much "night life" in our fair city - there is a fabulous calendar of music at Don Quixotes in Felton (less than 10 min away) You can find the calendar with your favorite web search tool. Felton also has the Roaring Camp steam train, great hiking and a zip line park as well. Our neighborhood is quiet and well-kept, with very little thru traffic and our home has several fruit trees and vegetable patches to enjoy seasonally. Getting AroundWe are close to bus stops that serve the greater Santa Cruz and San Lorenzo county area. We are about 10 minutes to downtown Santa Cruz and 30 minutes to Los Gatos.

      The SpaceWe are coming up on the best weather of our yearly cycle for the next three months! Warm sunny days and cool cloudless starlit nights, what could be more perfect! If you want to be close by to all the "Surf City" fun, action and ocean activities, great places to socialize and eat but but also be able to get away from it all or just relax, this mountain style home is pleasantly rustic yet very private, gated and exudes a very relaxed atmosphere. Just kick-back on one of the decks and enjoy a natural environment that's just right for you to be peaceful, unwind or just plain take it easy. Other guests have commented that you'll get some of the best sleep in your life with amazing dreams in the Master bedroom. We think it's because of being so close to the World Famous Mystery Spot! Enjoy high-speed internet for those that need fast connectivity or tap into the world of NetFlix using the AppleTV connection. Guest AccessThe home is ideal for one or two but could easily handle four adults or a couple with one or two kids. It has all the modern amenities with a large bathroom and laundry and the kitchen is set up nicely if you are a rock star at the range. On the front deck you could also be a champ on the "old-school" BBQ. This is my home, yet you'll have access to everything in the home and yard except the adjacent cottage. The basement will be locked but if you need a tool or something related, I probably have one or can get one in a hurry, so just let me know. Interaction with GuestsI am typically here to welcome you when you arrive and always available by cell as necessary. I also do all the care-taking for the Redwood House like the gardens and the hot tub, yet I am very respectful of your privacy. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, I am most happy to serve and make your stay in the "Cruz" the absolute best. The NeighborhoodThe home is really a relaxing retreat location yet a short quick drive to either Santa Cruz, Scotts Valley or places to the south and just minutes to the main arteries, Highway 17, to Silicon Valley and Highway 1 along the coast. You're nestled in a Redwood Mountain Valley with a stream that floes in the Winter, yet the home is situated in an open meadow with lots of light and views all around of the valley forest. Redwood Drive is just that, a 2.5 mile long drive, one lane-ish mountain road with a cul-de-sac. So no annoying traffic noise or city hustle bustle worries and not to close to any of my great neighbors. It's very safe, "over the top" peaceful easy living where you can go walking or biking or just hang out. Getting AroundYou'll need a vehicle of course and there is plenty of room to park on the gated property. Lots of people bike in Santa Cruz and in this area, so that's cool and it's easy to travel locally or get out of town as well. If you are flying in then there is plenty of local airport transit or just rent your ride at the airport. Other Things to NoteThe Redwood House is exceptional in that although it is in the Santa Cruz Mountains, unlike other valley, canyon or remote locations that don't open up to daylight or a have a view because of the forests, this location is naturally open, airy, light and spacious with great views of the hills and on a clear evening, our beautiful Monterrey Bay starry night sky.

        The SpaceThis is our home and we love our home. The home is new construction completed in Fall 2013. We think you will find the accommodations to be very comfortable. You have room to spread out, relax and enjoy the area. The kitchen is a food preppers delight. There is ample counter space to make the most elaborate meals, and the dining table seats 6 very comfortably. Our dear friends live in the 4th bedroom on the bottom floor. They do not access the main house and you will likely not see them. They are very friendly and can be helpful if you need anything. Guest Access1 master bedroom with California King bed 1 bedroom with queen bed 1 bunk bed room with optional queen air mattress. 2 car garage. Let us know if you have 2 cars. Outdoor patio. Interaction with GuestsWe will either be accessible by phone and will have an emergency contact in the area or we will be occupying the attached 4th bedroom on the bottom floor. This bedroom has a separate entrance that we will use so you will not see us unless you would like to. You will have lots of privacy. We enjoy meeting our guests but usually let you guide the interacting in order to respect your privacy. The NeighborhoodWe are in a very family friendly townhouse community. It is a quiet neighborhood with mostly young professionals. We are about a 5 minute walk to Sky Park and only 2 miles from a trail entrance and 10 minute drive to the main entrance at Henry Cowell State Park. We love the outdoors and the opportunities within a short drive are endless. Getting AroundScotts Valley transit center is a 2 minute walk away. Busses head to Santa Cruz and San Jose regularly. Other Things to NoteWe do not have Cable or Satellite TV. We have Chromecast and stream Amazon or Netflix. We might have bedding available for a small child.

        The SpaceSerenity galore! Laid back small family in large home. 4.5 acres. Gardens, walks, bike rides. Easy drive exploring from Santa Cruz/Carmel to San Francisco. Guest AccessSitting area by entry for sipping, eating or just enjoying. Laundry available in kitchenette for guests staying more than 3 days! Interaction with GuestsHosts available to help with any requests - simply call, or don't as you prefer. Or, besides cleanup and food delivery/bussing, can be "invisible" as desired! The Neighborhood(SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)ark (in town), Crow's Nest Beach and the Beach Boardwalk all offer free music in the summer that's fabulously fun. In Scotts Valley - restaurants, groceries, gifts, coffee, all choices.Between Scotts Valley and Santa Cruz one could even hit the Bigfoot Museum! Getting AroundYou will be in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Not near a bus stop, so driving up here is best! Local people not wanting to drive enjoy Uber cabs. Be advised there are no streetlights up Weston Road, so if it is your first experience driving up a couple miles of mountain road you may want to plan on arriving during daylight if possible. However, its not too difficult and GPS is reliable from Granite Creek or Glenwood Cutoff. Other Things to NoteParking for one vehicle.
