My husband, 4 month old son, and I had a great stay at the tree house! We enjoyed sitting out for hours on the quiet back porch, talking, reading, watching birds, and grilling. The treehouse is a short drive to the boardwalk and beach, so we also enjoyed hours in downtown Santa Cruz. We only met Peder and Lynn briefly because everything was already set up for us upon our arrival - very nice people. I highly recommend a stay at the treehouse! :-)
The host made us feel very welcome, leaving a note and instructions for us at the house along with a basket of pamphlets about the area and a bottle of wine. Lynn stopped by to introduce herself after we'd gotten settled and brought some freshly ground coffee for us. We also had a chance to meet Peder and see the lovely new treehouse he is building nearby. Both of the tree houses are handcrafted masterpieces with lots of natural woodwork and decorative touches. The one we stayed in fits the description perfectly—it's neat, clean, and cozy. Although the bathroom is tiny and might be a problem for someone who is extra large (or who has issues with knee pain/weakness: the angle for sitting down on the toilet is a little awkward), it's very clean and includes a window with a view out to the forest, which is delightful. Likewise, there's a lovely view of the forest from the kitchen window. As for the neighborhood, there are only a few homes in the area, so it's generally very peaceful and relaxing, especially at night. The description mentions that the home is over a car port, which I was concerned about, but all we heard was a single car leaving early in the morning and then returning early in the evening. It wasn't a big deal. The main "neighbors" are towering Redwood trees, which we loved sitting under on the back deck. It's well worth the extra drive from downtown Santa Cruz to get to this little oasis.
If you are looking for a quiet retreat in the coastal redwood forest near Santa Cruz, we can't recommend this location enough. Close enough to sample all that Santa Cruz has to offer such as restaurants, beaches, attractions, state parks, discovery centers, etc. when you want and then hide away in quiet, beautiful surroundings when you're done. The hosts provide a perfect setting for enjoying the peace and quiet of a forest cabin surrounded by magnificent redwoods. One of the experiences we enjoyed the most was sitting out on the back deck having breakfast while taking in the peace, quiet and beauty of the forest. We are definitely looking forward to making a return visit in the future.
Chill out retreats don't get much better than this! A truly magical experience, everything was great. Easy access to Santa Cruz and the surrounding area. The tree house was very well equipped, comfortable with lots of extras that were much appreciated.
Self check in was great as we felt totally relaxed yet Peder and Lynn were there if we needed anything, which we didn't as they had thought of everything! Highly recommended, we would love to return.
This place is absolutely magical. We loved staying in the treehouse so much we simply did not want to leave! It is spotless, modern, and has all the amenities you'll need. The best part is the fact that you are nestled in the redwoods and can hear the sounds of the forests like crickets and frogs. So relaxing. Cannot say enough good things about it. Peder and Lynn were very welcoming and included a very helpful welcome sign and instructions. Driving instructions were also very clear and made it super easy to get to! We love this treeehouse!!!
This is perhaps the most beautiful Airbnb listing I've ever stayed at. The back deck opens up onto a dense redwood forest. It's incredibly quiet and peaceful. The cabin itself is basically a beautiful studio apartment. You can see redwoods out of every window. There's also a nice hiking trail that's walking distance away.
Peder and Lynn left us a welcome basket with tips on restaurants and attractions in Santa Cruz. It also included a nice complimentary bottle of white wine. The cabin was spotless and cozy. Checkin was seamless. Peder and Lynn are incredibly nice people.
Wonderful trip! Strongly recommended!
My friend and I had so much planned for our short stay in Santa Cruz & we ended up just wanting to hang around the treehouse while we were there. It is absolute perfection and the silence you feel while you're there is amazing! Everything you need is at the treehouse, it's comfortable and the views are breathtaking. Peder and Lynn were great hosts! I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

About the Host, Peder / Lynn
Our family has lived in our Redwood Valley for the past 28 years & enjoyed living with nature all around us. We feel like we are on vacation full time. We decided to share it with other people
so they could enjoy the peaceful setting also. We have traveled the world and always love
coming home to such a natural & beautiful valley.
