The Space

Member of the Capitola/Soquel Chambers of Commerce, and the San Jose Silicon Valley Chamber.

SUN SUN SUN! It's here when the beaches are fogged in! Just six miles from the bay and warm and sunny!

Modern home on top of the world surrounded by redwoods, oaks, bay, fruit, and maple trees. Red tailed hawks soar overhead, hummingbirds dart about. Song birds sing in the trees. Quail bevies flit across the road and adjacent meadows. Sometimes a wild peacock strolls proudly by!

Quieter towns and beaches one half hour to the south like Moss Landing, Carmel and Monterey. Travel North one hour to Half Moon Bay, Atascadero, and Ano Nuevo State park to see the elephant seals or whale watching!

Guests love to stay at the Villa Soquel because it is private, peaceful, naturally beautiful but NOT located in the middle of nowhere.

Includes mountain side: outdoor swimming pool (NOT heated), patio, fire pit, bar b que, jetted spa, south facing deck with expansive valley views and use of the maintained walking trails through old redwoods, oak, pine and bay trees.

The Neighborhood

Ours is a beautiful, lush, green and serene valley located between Capitola Beach and the Los Gatos Mountain communities. We have wineries, horse boarding ranches, a quaint general store, attractions near by like The Mystery Spot! Gotta see that one if you haven't already.
Only a short, easy drive to the beaches, and the many antique stores in lovely Soquel Village. Convenient food shopping (Nob Hill, Safeway, New Leaf, Whole Foods etc.)
So many restaurants within 20 minutes! Pretty much everything but Korean.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This is a great place! Highly recommended. Easy, fast communication with host.

    February 2014
  • This was a wonderful house that we reserved as the groomsmen's house during our wedding weekend. Daniel was very hospitable and friendly, and even allowed us to stop by a couple weekends before to check out the house so we could make plans for a brunch we were hosting during our stay. He also allowed us to check in early without hesitation. The groomsmen let me know that they really enjoyed the house, and it was a great place for them to spend time together before the wedding.

    The house is on a steep hill in lovely surroundings. Spacious and comfortable. Absolutely recommend others to stay here.

  • Daniel and Kathy's place was a wonderful place to spend a relaxing weekend. We enjoyed the spa and the view the most -- in the day surrounded by forest at at night the stars and moon.

    October 2012
  • We found ourselves in a bad situation with desperate need for a nice quiet house for our daughter's wedding group, on very short notice. Daniel and Kathy went far beyond what most owners do in such a situation. They were understanding and gracious throughout the rental experience. My daughters reported that the house was absolutely perfect for their needs and only regret not having the opportunity to spend more time at this beautiful property.
    I cannot give a high enough recommendation for the property and the very kind way we were treated by Daniel prior to, and on arrival.
    We will undoubtedly return under more relaxed circumstances.

  • Villa Soquel was the perfect place to gather and celebrate our friend's birthday. Such a wonderful, spacious home on a magnificent, quiet property with spectacular views. Feels like you are "away from it all" but has every convenience you'll need within a 5-10 minute drive. Daniel was there to greet us and give us the tour, make sure we settled in well and knew where everything was. He even returned the next day with flowers, chocolate and balloon in hand for the birthday girl of our bunch. Such a sweet gesture, thanks again, Daniel. We grilled, chilled, talked, played, star-gazed and swam our weekend away. Everyone in our group felt so comfortable and relaxed at Villa Soquel, a truly special place. Thank you, Daniel and Kathy for sharing your home with us, we'll look forward to the next visit.

  • What a wonderful weekend. The place is beautiful... amazing view, secluded enough but very accessible, and stocked with table tennis, Xbox, swimming pool, hot tub, and more. A perfect mix of outdoor spaces to enjoy and games to play. Highly recommended, and great for small groups.

    November 2013
  • Very friendly couple that worked with me immediately upon request and was patient with the problems we had communicating swiftly via AirBnB's message system. Daniel was very clear and a definitely welcoming and accommodating in our requests. The home is placed on a very scenic hilltop an the pool area is amazing! Great little retreat for a family or couple, you really don't ever have to leave once you get past the gate!

  • Beautiful home, great communication and friendly hosts. Thank you!

    August 2013
  • This house was amazing! Driving up you get a little worried because you go by some farm houses but once you reach the gate you know you've found paradise!

    The house is huge and perfect for a weekend away with friends or a family gathering. It's a short drive into town if you have cars. If you are like my friends and I you'll hire someone to drive you around on a wine tour so you can taste* all you want! There are plenty of wineries close by.

    Great house, totally worth it!

    August 2013
  • My friends and I had such a fantastic time at Villa Soquel over the weekend. We originally intended to spend a bit more time in Santa Cruz, but decided that the villa outdid the boardwalk by far, so took full advantage of the beautiful views, great outdoor seating, the hot tub, and all the goodies the indoors had to offer too. It's the sort of house that we hope to go back to just to stay there again, regardless of the towns that lie nearby.

    Many thanks to Daniel as well, who was super communicative before and a helpful tour guide once we arrived! We hope to be back, and soon.

Kathy and I never really aspired to get into the bed and breakfast or vacation rental business. BUT, HERE WE ARE! Unbelievable chain of events all leading up to the wonderful experience of creating and making available one of the most beautiful and welcoming properties in the county. Life is surprising sometimes! I am a city boy from New York. I moved to California in 1976. I've lived in San Diego, Orange County and Santa Cruz. Kathy is from Detroit. She arrived in California in 1985. She is a practicing MFT here in town. We enjoy many of the activities that the area offers. One of our favorites is taking our dogs to the beach for a long walk on a nice day. We also enjoy shopping in Monterey, or Los Gatos, or Santana Row. We know all of the "good" places to eat for miles around. I am active from good morning 'til good night! I sleep like a rock on the bottom of a quiet lake. Never been happier with my life! Rest assured that you will feel very welcomed and comfortable should you decide to stay at our charming and relaxing Villa Soquel in the Santa Cruz Mountains! If you are a host in the Santa Cruz area, please feel free to refer to our Villa when you are full. AirBnb suggests that I share my life motto with my readers: When the going gets tough, the tough get going! Thanks for checking us out!
