The space
Our one bedroom cottage located in the Santa Cruz Mountains on a gated property, is a beautiful and comfortable place to relax and unwind. It sleeps 2 - 4 people, with 2 in the queen bed in the bedroom and 1 or 2 in the (full size) fold-out hide-a-bed air mattress in the living room.

There is also a single pad with bedding available for inside or outside deck sleeping. Inside the cottage there is a large flat screen TV with cable, a DVD player, and a selection of movies and High Speed Internet. There is also a cd player and a collection of CD's. We have a full kitchen with an antique gas stove, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, an assortment of tea's, coffee, basic condiments, and the tap water from our well is safe and excellent to drink. There is a wood burning stove in the living room with plenty of wood and the walls are adorned with vintage rock & roll posters. On the deck we have a jacuzzi hot tub, a gas barbecue, and patio furniture. There are large, clear skylights that afford a view of the redwoods while offering beautiful lighting. All linens and towels are provided. Adjacent to the cottage is a hammock and a Chartres labyrinth in the middle of a redwood circle.

(*sorry, no massage therapy appointments during Covid-19...) To enhance your visit, experience an in-house 60 or 90-minute massage therapy appointment for only $90 or $115! You can choose from either outside on the deck after your soak in the jacuzzi, or in the living room in front of the cozy wood-burning stove. This is an excellent deal with Licensed Massage Therapist, Lisa DiBello, InTune Massage Therapy, a world-class, 20-year veteran massage therapist originally educated and licensed in NYC at the Swedish Institute. Since then, Lisa has been continuously honing her skills having studied in Japan, China and Thailand as well as been employed at leading industry resorts and spas such as Pebble Beach Spa in Carmel, CA, and Ten Thousand Waves Resort in Santa Fe, NM.
Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity! Contact your host to book as advance notice is necessary.

For travelers this is the best of both worlds. A cozy cottage nestled in the redwood forest, 10 minutes off of HWY 1 (Pacific Coast Highway), the main vein to Monterey, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Big Sur, Capitola and Santa Cruz, and 6 minutes from HWY 17.

People come from all over the world to experience the Pacific Coast specifically the Monterey Bay area. It is an area rich in history. Here you will find world-class art, music, cuisine, golf, surfing, sightseeing, hiking, biking, sunbathing, whale watching, birding, fishing, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, and so much more. You can spend the day engaged in a variety of activities, physical and/or cultural. However you spend your day, you can return home to your private cottage nestled in the quiet redwoods.

The weather here is excellent. Winters are mild we average 25” of rainfall a year. Summers can be warm but delightful. The weather is nearly perfect. Fog burns off at the ocean early enough to make the beaches comfortable all day.

The Santa Cruz Mountains are home to Sequoia Sempervirens commonly known as a Redwood Tree. They are native only to a specific part of Pacific Coast region. Come and visit our amazing part of the world and experience something special about the California Coast. It is truly amazing to stand on the labyrinth in the middle of 200 foot redwoods. There are 4 or 5 excellent restaurants within 15 minutes of our home.

The caretaker/owner Jay and his partner, Lisa, live on the property, along with 2 cats. We are excited about sharing this slice of heaven with you.

Other things to note
If you decide to bring your dog, please take them with you when you leave the cottage, keep them on a leash when they are here and put down a sheet if they get on the furniture. There is a $30 cash one time pet fee. * during covid-19 we unfortunately cannot pet your dogs, please don't take this personally. We love dogs! Also, please do not pet our cats or let them into the cottage. They are very affectionate and loving but the virus can spread on our pets..! Let's all be smart and safe and we'll get through this!
