This 1200 sq ft dodecahedron (12 sided) duplex house is in the Santa Cruz redwoods. Enjoy the entire second story 2 bed/1 bath unit that is only 15 min away from Rio Del Mar State beach. You get the best of both worlds- land & sea. You get to take in spectacular views of the redwoods on the 30 acre property with over 50 meyer lemon trees.

Breathe in the redwoods. Soak in the California sun. Immerse yourself in Santa Cruz culture. A true paradise.

We look forward to your stay.

The space
*420 Friendly*
The origins of the counter culture in the sixties, the majestic redwoods, a legacy of generations of farming and caring for the land. We are at 880 foot elevation three miles inland from Monterey Bay nestled in the redwoods and oaks.

Our roots at JuJu Paradise run deep. Born and raised on this mountain a quarter mile from the paradise, our family has protected and nurtured this land.

Judy (JuJu of JuJu Paradise) moved onto the land in 1972 and grew organic produce here for 41 years. She planted seventy five Meyer lemon trees that share the orchard with our grow and continue to produce the best organic lemons anywhere. She left us the land when she passed in 2014, and we are passionate about continuing her legacy of natural farming and care for the earth.

Where you’ll be

Aptos, California, United States

Please note the general location of Juju Paradise on the map Airbnb provides. Juju Paradise is located in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Juju Paradise is beautifully private, but please note that we are about a 15 minute drive from the Rancho Del Mar shopping center (Aptos Safeway, restaurants, shopping etc.) The last portion of the drive is uphill on a curved road that can be one lane at times. While we believe that our location provides a true Santa Cruz forest paradise experience, we urge our potential guests to review the general location.

Cal and Zaharah just celebrated their anniversary in Singapore where they got married 30 years ago. Cal works on the property at the redwood lumber mill. Zaharah enjoys gardening and crocheting. They live in the bottom unit of The Juju Paradise, so they are always around to answer questions or give suggestions about the area.
