See pics! Half hour to San Jose, 15 miles to the Capitola beach, and an hour from SFO or Monterey. Also, check out our 5 star yurt listing: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/19876384

What guests are saying:

“The Treehouse has been my favorite Airbnb spot thus far. The views are breathtaking, the beauty goes beyond the pictures you see. Do yourself a favor and don’t miss the sunset! I definitely reconnected with my inner child staying in this treehouse. Everything was clean and disinfected when we arrived. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean, beautiful, and heated, and the view reminds you how beautiful nature really is. What tied in the whole experience was how incredibly friendly the hosts were, Robin and Mark. When we arrived we were offered an optional tour and there was no way I was missing out on that. We were showed around the vineyard, told history of the area and got to know Robin a bit more, and how they’ve grown the vineyard! I have come across friendly hosts before, but Robin went above and beyond. No doubt this will be a hidden treasure that I will come back to. Book this place! You won’t regret it.”

What guests are saying:

“Honestly, I wish I could wake up every morning here.. it is so quaint and quiet. You are surrounded by huge trees, the sounds of nature and just pure simplicity. The fire pit was so nice to relax by in the evening, it kept us pretty warm and the room was so cozy! The outdoor bathtub was a DREAM. No bath I’ll take from here on out will ever be the same, it was so magical! Our two dogs also enjoyed the location, taking in all the smells and having space to run around made me happy that they didn’t have to be cooped up like they would be if we were in a hotel. I’m all for staying at new places when revisiting a place, but if I’m ever in the area again, I cannot pass up staying here, it’s too relaxing and beautiful not to!”

Private Guest-House in the Redwoods

Private Guest-House in the Redwoods

Our custom built guesthouse was completed in 2016. It is situated on 5 redwood-covered acres, 10 minutes south of Los Gatos and 20 minutes from Santa Cruz. We have easy access to hiking and biking trails, world-class wine-tasting, microbreweries, shops, amazing dining, and more! There is something for everyone in our area! We are surrounded by a 35 acre tree farm, so it's very private, yet close to the silicon valley! Our property has a standby generator so we are not affected by power outages.

What guests are saying:

“Louise’s cabin is a great place to rest and enjoy the Redwoods. The hammock and the front window seat were my favorite reading spots. We also explored local hikes and we ventured to Big Basin Redwoods for a gorgeous longer hike on the Berry Creek Loop. We ended the day at the steakhouse -Forbes Mill?- in Los Gatos which was fabulous. All in all, we loved our stay and would highly recommend it! Older guests should be aware that the room is in a loft that can only be accessed by ladder steps which might be unsafe for some. There are sleeping options in the living room that would be comfortable was well.”
