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.

Guest access
Lemon Orchard
Acres of redwood forest

Location

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.
