About This Listing
Our home is just a hop, skip and a jump to the world famous Mystery Spot (you can literally walk there in 2 minutes or less). It is in a tranquil setting surrounded by redwoods with afternoon sunshine, and only 4 miles to downtown Santa Cruz!
Surrounded by the redwoods. Peaceful, quiet, nice lighting with skylights throughout.
Quiet, private road.
Other Things to Note
One real bed- king size.
One air bed- label says queen, but a bit smaller than a standard queen.
No smoking anything inside the house.
My two adult children and I had a wonderful experience staying in Shannon and Neva's Redwood Retreat. The house was cozy, comfortable and peaceful and set in an idyllic forest setting. We foodies especially appreciated the fully equipped kitchen which has been beautifully updated with new appliances, stocked with lovely dishes, all the tools one could hope for, and spices of all kinds. Thank-you Shannon and Neva for a lovely stay and for recommending the restaurant Geisha for sushi, a true treasure.
We had a lovely weekend at the Redwood Retreat. Shannon and Neva were very responsive. Communication and access were easy. Their home was super comfortable and we enjoyed spending the weekend amongst the trees. We especially liked making a fire in the wood stove.
Shannon and Neva were great to work with and offered a their wonderful home to me and my family for a great weekend getaway. It was like camping with out the tent among the beautiful redwoods and their house was breath taking! We felt relaxed and at home and would recommend this to anyone looking to get away from the city life and enjoy nature! They also baked some great blueberry lemon bread for us too!!! One of the best places I've stayed in! Thank you again!
The place and location were really nice. Shannon and Neva were kind and gracious hosts and even left a bottle of wine for me since they knew it was my birthday! So Nice! They gave me a heads, to know that there is a neighbor in a studio attached to the garage (no shared walls), since I was entertaining a few friends, but as long as you are respectful of neighbors and the noise level, it is totally fine and are easy going people. They were really great about being available by phone if I needed anything. I've been recommending this place to my friends! I would definitely stay again!

About the Host, Shannon & Neva
Thanks for looking at our home. We love living in the redwoods! It is super peaceful out here. We are outdoor enthusiasts. We love biking, surfing, and being in nature. The Redwood Retreat is our primary residence, which we rent when we are out of town. It is super quiet and surrounded by redwoods. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay only minutes to downtown Santa Cruz then this is the place for you! We are currently renting out the Redwood Studio most of the year. The studio is attached to our garage and is a cozy getaway in the redwoods!!
