About This Listing

Note: our calendar is up to date. If it says the unit is available, then it means it's available. Please go ahead and make a reservation.

If you are looking for that Hawaiian style getaway right here in Central California, then look no further. We live on a large property overlooking the Pacific Ocean and redwood forests that features a botanical garden with exotic tropical fruit and over 100 species of rare tropical palms. A waterfall nested in the midst of a lush palm and fern forest will make you feel like you are somewhere on the islands. We have fresh home grown cherimoyas, highland papayas, sapotes, macadamias, rare citrus and much more.

Our home is a Mediterranean Spanish-roof style estate that also features a very spacious one bedroom apt/studio that can accomodate 2 people and possibly a child on the pullout sofa bed. You will have a bathroom with shower, a full kitchen with all amenities, and washer and dryer. The bamboo hardwood floors are newly laid. There is a separate bedroom and a separate dining room, but the floor plan is open, so there are only minor walls to separate the spaces, hence it could also be called a studio.

We are walking distance from Henry Cowells State Park, Pasatiempo Golf course, and a 10 minute drive from Central California's warmest and sunniest beaches. You can shop in downtown Santa Cruz and enjoy the laid back atmosphere of the Warf all within minutes driving from here. You can also drive up the coast for 20 minutes and find secluded pristine beaches and beautiful cliffs. We know all the secret spots and will let you know how to get there.

We are open to share our garden with our guests. Hundreds come and visit annually just to see the amazing biodiversity of plants in our little botanical garden. Our palmetum features exotic palms from Madagascar, Central America, the Andes of South America, Brazil and Asia, including Andean coconuts, bismarckia nobilis and the Brazilian Jelly palm. We also have a large collection of dypsis and sabal palms. The orchard features an assortment of tropical and exotic fruit, with 50 rare citrus as well as 800 varieties of apples. We have fruit available year round.

We are looking to share our little piece of paradise with open minded guests who also share our belief that the world is a better place through more kindness and tolerance. World travelers are most welcome. We are fluent in French and German as well.

Please note: the property is on a steep hillside and has a lot of stairs. If you are not fit to handle stairs, then we are unable to accomodate you.

Note: Unfortunately, AirB&B violates all local US city and county ordinances by not supporting the ability to collect local hotel taxes. Therefore we are left on our own to collect the 13% hotel tax, which is due at arrival which needs to be paid in cash or check.
