Our home is a warm place to lay your head while exploring all the beauty that surrounds this area. In just 10 minutes be among the magnificent redwoods, walking the stunning beaches, kayaking Elkhorn Slough or surfing the beautiful waves. Even enjoy organic fruit and veggies from our backyard garden.
Our home is just outside of the city of Santa Cruz, between Aptos and Corralitos. If you're looking for a less touristy location and quiet long stretches of beach, Aptos is the place for you. You can also experience the excitement of Santa Cruz and then come home to this more country-like setting.
Our guests will have access to organic fruits and vegetables while in season, that you can harvest straight from our backyard garden and greenhouse.
Most often we do all interactions virtually.
I love that I can be in my car less than 10 minutes and be in the redwood forest or on the most beautiful beaches of the Central Coast. I love that in less than 1.5 hours I can be in the lively city of San Francisco or in Big Sur exploring the most breathtaking waterfalls and beaches in the world. I love that when I look out my kitchen window I see cows roaming the hillside.

This house was wonderful! Cozy and perfect for our weekend getaway. Angela was also very accessible and able to recommend places to eat and activities.
Derik & Angela's abode was the perfect spot for a NYE gathering with friends. Wonderful kitchen for cooking, great media options, fabulous fire pit out back. I would definitely recommend this cozy retreat!
A couple friends and I decided to have our annual post-Christmas trip here. Angela and Derik were more than accommodating and generous. The projector system was perfect for our late night movies and the kitchen was fully stocked. All in all, our stay was perfect!
My son, daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Derik and Angelas' house. The house was immaculate and welcoming with soft towels, comfortable beds and upgraded kitchen, and bathrooms. I enjoyed the location near the tiny town of Corralitos, which has a market locally famous for it sausages and meats. The surrounding countryside has a pleasing mosaic of apple orchards, redwood trees, and berry farms. To the west are beautiful beaches. Angela was very good at answering my questions and giving recommendations on things to do in the Santa Cruz area. We greatly enjoyed our kayaking experience at nearby Elkhorn Slough, the second largest estuary in California. Other than some morning traffic noise from nearby Freedom Blvd, the house is located in a peaceful, rural valley, with a small park just down the road. We enjoyed the TV projection system. I feel Angela and Derik described their house accurately, and were accommodating to our needs.
