Michele and Matt's cottage was the perfect place for my dog Bernie and I to stay. It was exactly as described, and was the perfect home base for exploring Santa Cruz and relaxing among the trees in Scotts Valley. It was clean, in a great location, and had all the amenities we needed. Close to hiking and a dog park so Bernie could get out and explore. My only regret was not staying longer! Matt and Michele were great hosts and I hope to visit again someday. I highly recommend this place!
A lovely, well kept cottage with a relaxing sylvan view from the back deck, it was exactly what we were looking for. There was even a great selection of breakfast and snacks left for us.
A small well-kept house with a large porch. It is located behind our hosts' home , but is well-separated if one wants to be undisturbed . The area is quiet and surrounded by tall trees and greenery . The house has a beautiful decorated bedroom and a combined kitchen and living room. The kitchen has what you need to pass simple cooking . The bathroom with toilet and bath is clean. We were four people which was perhaps a little optimistic, but it worked for one night . It is perfect for two, but also works well for three.
The hosts are very accommodating and are happy to advise on excursions and more .
I would recommend this !
Michele and the cottage were great! Everything we needed and a beautiful location. Great communication and an easy place to stay.
I had another great stay at the private cottage. I got a lot of great writing done out on the beautiful deck in the company of woodpeckers and jays. Hope to be back soon.
We stayed in this private cottage over Valentine's Day weekend. My husband and I were looking for a quiet place to celebrate away from the business of the city but close enough to enjoy Santa Cruz restaurants. This cottage was the perfect location. We really enjoyed sitting on the deck enjoying the birds and the trees. The cottage itself was a nice size for two people and our large dog. We loved that we were able to bring our dog along. The snacks left by our hosts were the perfect touch. Comfortable bed, but the futon in the living room was a little hard but we didn't spend too much time sitting indoors. We like that there was no TV and we're able to spend time disconnected (although we also appreciated the wi-fi). We are the type of Air B N B travelers who like our privacy and not much interaction with hosts, and Michelle and Matt respected this. We would most definitely stay here again.
What a wonderful cottage! The location was so peaceful, yet easy to access, and close to many beautiful places to explore. Michele made us feel very welcome.

We live on .75 acre near Scotts Valley. We have a private home plus a cottage rental. There is a shop on the property where Matt works as a furniture maker. Michele works full-time in healthcare. We enjoy the outdoors, hiking, cycling, reading, art, movies, and travel. We cross-country ski in the winter and backpack in the summer. We have hosted guests in our home for over 12 years - many from different countries. We enjoy getting to know people and hearing of their travels. We like to cook and eat healthy, organic food too.
