Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We had a very friendly welcome to Boulder Creek. Judy and Jim asked about our travels so far and walked us around their house to the back. We walked up the stairs to our apartment for two nights. It was very clean, spacious for the two of us and exactly what we wanted. It was furnished with the greatest thought. The best towels and bed linen. We had use of the decking downstairs which had a BBQ and seating. Judy and Jim gave us lots of information about the local area and things to do. They left us to do we pleased and were around if we needed them. They would help as much as they could with anything. We wished we were staying longer this would have been a great base but we wanted something further down the coast.

  • We went there for a college move out and everything was very hectic. Nevertheless we enjoyed the stay at Judy's place and wished we could spend more time there. Her place is very nice and high in the mountains.

  • What a wonderful spot! The photos do not show Judy's lovely retreat to it's fullest. It is spotlessly clean and welcoming and the little touches (like the fish above the door) give it a feeling of home. We did not fully utilize all of the amenities that were available but were very thankful for the coffee pot. Judy even directed us to a great spot for breakfast on Sunday morning. We would definitely go back.

  • My boyfriend and I had a great time at Judy's Treetop Haven! She and her husband were very welcoming, and it's clear that they take great care of and pride in their loft. We enjoyed taking advantage of the peace and quiet (their place is surrounded by greenery and nicely secluded in the mountains not far from Hwy 9). I loved the little kitchenette - it was so quaint and just big enough to make a nice big breakfast. We'll definitely come and stay with them again next time we want to get away!

  • Staying with Judy and Jim was a great experience. Their studio was as described and they were friendly and helpful with everything we needed - including local hiking and pub recommendations.

  • My "roomie" and I arrived for the weekend wedding at different times with different needs, and Judy and her family could not have been more helpful or accommodating. The apartment is charming, well appointed, super clean, and so quiet in the beautiful redwoods. I was sad to leave without taking advantage of all the nice little touches Judy so thoughtfully provided. I recommend this rental without reservation - I would love to go back soon.

  • Our stay at Judy's Paradise in the Redwoods was awesome! The studio apartment was perfect for our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 small children). Judy and Jim were welcoming, friendly and accommodating! The place was exceptionally clean, well stocked and had everything you could possibly need to get away from it all. We would definitely stay again and highly recommend staying to anyone looking for a vacation.

  • Judy and Jim truly made their upstairs studio a comfort to live in, very clean and comfortable with everything you could possible need while away from home: a well-stocked kitchenette with all sorts of useful appliances, and a spacious bathroom with hairdryer and iron. They respected our privacy but were so warm and thoughtful I felt I could have approached them if I needed (website hidden). Follow Judy's driving directions and you will have a pleasant time finding their place!

  • The steps in the first photo lead to a comfy room with a kitchenette nook and bath. It's perfect for a couple visiting the area who want to be away from the busy-ness of the city. Boulder Creek is less than 5 minutes away for eating out or bringing food back as take out or to prepare simply. The redwoods envelope the area and there's lots to do outdoors. Wifi and cable TV if you need it. Plus the hosts are available for suggestions or not if you want privacy. Arrive before dark the first time as it is definitely out of the way. Judy gives GREAT directions! Thank you Judy and Jim for your thoughtfulness.

  • Judy and Jim and their place was just great. My friend and I arrived around mid day on Saturday and they were there to greet us and show us the space. The room was cozy but spacious, and everything was clean and well put together. It was also nice to have a mini kitchen with fridge, kettle, coffee maker and hot plate, so you could make little things if you wanted to.
    After Jim and Judy showed us the place they left us be and gave us complete privacy, which was really lovely.
    They were also available to give advice on local restaurants when we asked which was nice.
    We had a really great time, and would definitely stay there again.
    Thank you Jim and Judy!
