The space
Dragonfly Cottage is magic. A wonderful stone cottage in Corralitos in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains. For travelers this is the best of both worlds. A cozy cottage nestled in the redwood forest, a short distance to HWY 1. HWY 1 is the Pacific Coast HWY, the main vein to Monterey, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Big Sur, Capitola and Santa Cruz and the HWY 101 Corridor.

Please read all the way through the description before making a reservation request.

Or if you are looking for some peace and quiet. A restorative break from your life. This is an excellent choice.

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 a mountain cottage and quiet.

Spend your evening relaxing in the hot tub secluded in the Redwoods.

Looking south from inside the cottage is the largest window which affords the incredible view of the Pajaro Valley. The queen size bed is placed so you can enjoy gazing out upon the fertile valley while lying in bed. Some mornings the fog lays down so perfectly one can feel wonderfully alone looking out at the sea of soft white. Sunsets are often remarkably beautiful. Sit on the front deck in an Adirondack chair with a cup of tea or glass of wine and enjoy creation. In the morning and evenings you can sit and watch and listen to the Mourning Doves, Band Tailed Pigeons, Oregon Juncos, Stellars and Scrub Jays, Hummingbirds, Hawks and Ravens.

The cottage is bungalow style. It is like a large open studio. There is no separate bedroom.

Just inside the big window there is a delicious couch and a loveseat that provide comfortable viewing from inside the cottage. The couch is large enough for a fine nap. It is also a great place to snug down with a book or magazine or some knitting. The gas heater stove is particularly cozy on a cool day. There is a piano in the cottage as well. Feel free to play.

The cottage is fully equipped with a kitchen including a reproduction antique stove and small refrigerator. It has a newly installed bamboo floor. One can enjoy their breakfast with a breath taking view. Coffee and tea in the kitchen are for your enjoyment.

The bathroom has a tub/shower combination. Bedding and fresh linens are provided.

The cottage is heated with a natural gas stove. There is an oil heater for extra chilly nights.

There is plenty of open space inside to accommodate several people practicing yoga at the same time. And it is quiet enough for meditation.

We find many of our guests are looking for peace and quiet in their busy lives. It can be found here. Occassionaly the guests spend many days resting, reading, etc. inside the cottage or on the beautiful deck that looks out to Pajaro Valley.

The weather here is excellent. It is located in a micro climate called a banana belt. Though the beach is only 25 minutes away we are often in the sun when our neighbors in the valley and on the coast are in the fog. Winters are mild we average 25" of rainfall a year. Summers can be warm but delightful. The fog rolling in at night is nature's air conditioner and everything cools down. The weather is nearly perfect. Fog burns off 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.

I am a woman interested in almost everything. I am married, the mother of five children, ages 21 to 41. I am grandmother to seven. I am a local to the area and love my native California. I make soap and body products and am an avid reader. I have and affinity for people and animals. Thinking is my favorite activity. Talking with thinkers comes next. I love nature and have chosen to live in the mountains my entire adult life. I have traveled to Mexico, Canada, Ireland, Europe and around the States. I look forward to more travels and the good people wherever I go... Bless you, Mary Jane
