Member of the Capitola/Soquel Chambers of Commerce. County Tax #CO00445

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!

This listing is for the Entire Villa! FOUR bedrooms and three bathrooms. King Sized Bedroom, two twin beds in the Twins Room, Queen room with a queen feather bed and a Sleep Number adjustable Queen Bed in the Luxury Angel's Room with private bathroom.

Use of fully equipped kitchen included.

Clothes washer/dryer on premises.

Quiet, peaceful, secluded, but not remote! Only 6 easy miles to the Monterey Bay! One turn off the Soquel San Jose Road. Then straight up the private driveway to the Villa! You can't get lost coming here.

Swimming pool - spa - concrete and wood decks. Lots of sunshine. Shade if you want it. Views! Hiking trails. Picnic on the lawn.

Bedrooms:
Queen Romantic Luxury, private bathroom
Twins - two twin beds
King - as in "fit for a King"
Queen 2 - queen feather bed

Bathrooms:
Three, all with showers. One with shower over tub.

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.

Guest access

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 up to 10 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.

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.

Awesome house hosted by thoughtful and responsive hosts. Booked at last minute given Sonoma fires and found so much to do in this area. Five miles to Capitola and Santa Cruz was just a bit further. Visited several wineries during our stay and even did a zip line excursion at Mount Hermon. Did a quick day trip to Monterey so suffice to say that this property was conveniently located to some of the best CA has to offer. NOW THE BEAUTY IS...this house is so amazing, you never really needed to leave it. Great outdoor entertainment area complete w gas grill, pool, hot tub and lounge bed. Whether you are looking to kick back or explore the area, you will not be disappointed! Would definitely consider coming back!

This is an amazing house in a beautiful location. It really makes you feel like you have traveled to a faraway resort. Loved all of the outdoor areas. Kids loved the pool and all of the activities that the house provided (ping pong, drums and keyboard, guitar hero) and we all loved the hot tub. We grilled every day and took full advantage of the well stocked kitchen; roasted marshmallows on the outdoor fireplace and made s'mores. The house is spacious and comfortable and has great wifi coverage throughout the space. Hope to return some day!

Absolutely fantastic experience staying at the Villa. Beautiful views, quiet location, and luxury abound. Our family enjoyed the hot tub, pool, fire pit, and slept like a dream. We would highly recommend the Villa to everyone!

Daniel & Kathy's place is awesome for a weekend getaway to Santa Cruz. It's tucked up in the hills and there is a great little market/coffee shop only a few minutes away that has killed produce. The house is well stocked with all the essentials and you feel like you're at your own home. They have all the spices and things you need to comfortably cook in their home. They left out some fruit and snacks as well which was quite nice. There is plentiful outdoor space to relax and take in the breathtaking views. I'd highly recommend it and the hot tub is quite nice after a long day of mountain biking.

Lovely home in a quiet, secluded area. Hosts were gracious with the amenities and snacks (healthy ones!) for the guests. It was really nice to grill, eat outside, and hang out by the pool. The home and rooms are spread out, so there's quiet space and it feels roomy. Lots of rules, and high occupancy tax for the county made us a bit hesitant to book again. However, no problems at all, and it was a really nice weekend for our group.
