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!

Very relaxing environment. Do some serious thinking, drawing, writing, dancing, poetry or nothing at all. Just rest!
Please note: Villla Soquel is not suitable or available for loud, outdoor, into the night parties. Outdoor quiet time is 10 pm.
Six minutes to Capitola Village's restaurants, shopping, dancing, bars, BEACH and events.
Twelve minutes to Downtown Santa Cruz, the Beach Boardwalk and all they offer in that wild west college town!
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.
Guests who rent the Villa Soquel will have the entire 4 bedroom single story ranch style home for their exclusive use. Includes mountain side: outdoor swimming pool (NOT heated), patio, fire pit, barbecue, jetted spa, south facing deck with expansive valley views and use of the maintained walking trails through old redwoods, oak, pine and bay trees. Plenty of parking for 10 - 12 cars.
Note: for stays exceeding three nights, there will be an outdoor maintenance visit by a staff member every third day.
Interaction with guests
When the Villa Soquel is rented in it's entirety, I welcome and orient our guests and will only interact when invited. The Villa is theirs to enjoy as they please in private.
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.
No public transit to the Villa Soquel at this time.
Parking for 8 vehicles easy off street at the house.
Other things to note
The kitchen is ready for you. Have had dozens of guests prepare their meals here and there have been no requests for any kitchenware in addition to what is provided!
This house feels like a home, not like a rental!

Villa Soquel is not a wild party venue. Outdoor quiet time is ten pm. Move your party inside at that time.
You may have up to eight additional daytime guests with prior permission. Please ask before booking.
No pets please. Please don't ask. It tears me up to have to say no. I own two dogs myself and the reality of the situation is that for several reasons I can't allow pets at the Villa. Sorry about that.
The Villa is a place for creative respite, socializing, re-uniting, re-charging, communing, romantic pursuits and of course, love.
... Please no smoking IN the house. Smoking anything outside is okay. Please be sure to close all windows and doors nearby when you are smoking outside. No candles inside. No incense inside the house.

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!
