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!

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 10 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 kitchen ware in addition to what is provided!
This house is lived in when not rented. It feels like a home, not like a rental!
The driving speed up and down the driveway from Soquel San Jose Road is 8 MPH. My neighbors have pets and I have wild quail on my property. We do not want to put up fences.
If my neighbors report any guest vehicles traveling at more than a S L O W speed on the driveway, the amount of $100 will be deducted from your security deposit.
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.
Villa Soquel is not a wild party venue. Outdoor quiet time is ten pm.
You may have up to eight daytime guests with prior permission. Please ask before booking or as soon after as possible.
... 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.
