The small bedroom is perfect for a single person who does not need a lot of space. The room can accommodate a couple as well.
There is private access to a shared bath (this is a private bath if there are no cottage guests).
We have cats and dogs.

Had a great time. The house is cozy and quaint, everything you would expect from a county home.
Christine is welcoming and warm, She is astute about animals and careful about living in concert with the nature and beauty she's created around her. She was a delight to get to know.
Her home is warm and welcoming just like her.
The pictures are true to the home and its lovely surroundings.
Christine was a cordial and lovely host and her house was warm and accommodating.
Christine was an absolute perfect host, and her home and property are perfect... Highly recommended!
Christines beautiful rustic house with a wonderful huge garden planted with delicious tomatoes, citrons etc. is the best option if you are looking for a lovely hideaway from the hectic cities. We enjoied it very much just to hang out on the patio in the sun, having extensive breakfasts there. Christine is very responding to all your needs and succeeds in making your stay the best although she's got lots of work!( And she is quite an interesting person to talk to)
By car it's just about 30 minutes away from monterey/monterey bay area. I can really recommend the point lobos trail! It's fantastic!
So lets go...pack a book, leave your work and all the stress at home and enjoy Christine's wonderful place!
I had a great time at Christine's wonderful place! The house is a hidden treasure surrounded by beautiful nature and full of lovely little things. When I arrived at night and came in the lamplit house with a small fireplace burning I felt home immediately. Thank you so much for the wonderful time! It was a pleasure to meet Christine, Robert and Molly!

I am an over employed PA in love with the country life. The property is a rambling half acre of flowers, vegetable gardens an fruit trees in the hilly setting of South Santa Cruz County. Large sunny decks flank the main house and invite guests outside to enjoy morning coffee and the New York Times.
The house has a small downstairs bedroom with private bath. There is also a much larger private suite of rooms upstairs (that is not listed). The guest cottage is under the trees at the bottom of the rose garden. It has a small kitchenette and shares the downstairs bathroom in the main house. Both the bedroom and the cottage have queen sized futons. The cottage sleeping loft is a short ladder climb up. Either space would be perfect for a couple. We can accommodate up to three couples, with children. Well behaved dogs are also welcome and guests are encouraged to cook in the main house in the French country-style kitchen with oak floors and an antique gas stove .
The outdoor spaces offer benches and tables to sit, read and even eat out doors. And the wood fired hot tub is quite popular. I especially love soaking under the stars....
