Interaction with Guests
We respect our guests privacy and will respond promptly to text or phone calls.
Set amongst lovely redwood trees with creek running thru it, occasional visits from turkeys. Once you are inside, the A-Frame home offers lots of privacy. No backyard neighbors in view as there is a steep hill on the opposite side of the creek with lots of trees.
- Strictly NO SMOKING indoors.
- No burning of candles on or around the property.
- Please help to keep the home clutter free for future guests by not leaving behind your personal items. Accumulated magazines, brochures, jars, toiletries, clothing, grocery bags, small furniture, etc. will build up clutter very quickly.
- Please properly clean and return all kitchen items to where you found them so future guests can appreciate an organized kitchen with clean utensils.
this was a nice, clean, comfy and relaxing place to stay. the creek was especially soothing to listen to! unfortunately for us we weren't home enough to fully relax and enjoy-too busy with grandsons' birthday party on Saturday and visiting with everyone. the only difficult thing was finding the house-the first time we made at least 3 u-turns looking for it-the waner way street sign was hidden in the tree from zayante rd. we saw the street sign when we left the house for the first time. I would recommend the cottage!
The little cabin by the creek was everything we wanted for a weekend getaway. We loved how cozy it was and thoroughly enjoyed the amenities offered by Cynthia and Quentin. Thank you again for a fun weekend!
Wonderful, magical family retreat! Super convienent to Santa Cruz region while providing a very private, beautiful location, with epic view of calming backyard stream, complete with spawning steelhead on our last day. Kids 4 and 8 had a great time working on a Star Wars puzzle and playing in the creek. Full kitchen provided everything needed to cook our meals. Have already recommended to our Bay Area friends who might want a little get away. Hope to visit again. Thank you to Cynthia and Quentin.
Host was very prompt in responding to my request to stay at the Sumana Cottage and they provided their contact information in case of any emergencies or requests.
The neighborhood was quiet. Previous reviews are right about the level of privacy as the cottage is nicely tucked away and secluded from neighbors.
Listing description is accurate. Wifi worked great, the bed was comfortable, central heating is available, and the wood burning stove kept us plenty warm! Kitchen was fully stocked with amenities. Our favorite part of the cottage was the amazing window with the gorgeous view of all those riparian trees.
It is a cozy little place for a couple or small family to stay in! We will come back!
The cottage is quaint, looks like something out of a fairytale. It is located near hiking trails and close to Santa Cruz. You have everything you need to prepare meals. I had a great time with my family. The hosts made check in easy and all instructions were in writing.
Cynthia and Quentin were great! This cottage is beautiful and in a beautiful location, and we had a really great time. Thanks especially for the use of the grill! We had some great hamburgers. :) Everything was clean and we had everything we needed. Highly recommended.

About the Host, Cynthia
I am a retired professional from the high tech industry of Silicon Valley. My husband is a retired accountant. Motivated by our desire to share with others the natural beauty of the redwoods and creekside setting of our weekend getaway home in the Santa Cruz mountains of California, we started renting it out in early 2011 to vacationers. Since then, we discovered our true passion in creating aesthetically pleasing, practical and comfortable "home away from home" living spaces for others to enjoy. During our annual visits to my in-laws in southwest Florida, we fell in love with the vibrancy of the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area and the beautiful beaches. Subsequently, we established other rental homes in Hollywood.
