If you have kids, this is THE place to stay in the Santa Cruz/Felton area. Perfectly located for EASY access to roaring camp (about 1 mile away) and the Boardwalk (about 7 miles away), this Family Friendly "Cabin" in the woods is simply a paradise for parents.
The house is nicely appointed with everything we needed. The kids room is absolutely wonderful and my 3 1/2 yo son was overjoyed with all of the toys to play with -- toys GALORE. The outside play structure was perfect to come back to after being out and about exploring the area. We played on the structure every evening before dinner.
I only gave four stars because the adult bed and pillows could have been a tad bit comfier (but then there's really no place like your own bed). I really would have given 4.5 stars if there had been an option.
We will absolutely return and recommend others to this location.
This is such a beautiful, peaceful home, set in the mountains, but 20 minutes from the beach. Great place to relax after a busy day & also kid friendly. Would love to stay here again!
Iris's home was comfortable and oh-so-cute! I had a great stay here with a few friends and I'd recommend this rental to couples, small groups, and families with kids alike :) . The house is nestled in the gorgeous Redwoods and there's a real sense of privacy and safety as well. If you're looking to be near Santa Cruz, Felton is a nice option. Best feature of the house is arguably the big wrap-around porch, which was much enjoyed by our group. Iris, the host, was very communicative through text and e-mail and we didn't experience any concerns. Thanks for graciously hosting us!
Iris and her family were the best guests I could have imagined. She communicated with me very well prior to arrival, and was so respectful of the apartment and very clean - there was little evidence that they had lived here at all. They went above and beyond in helping me take care of my cat Gus. I'd just asked them to feed him, but they also cleaned his litter and got him a toy! They were honestly so considerate and wonderful - model houseguests! I'd love to have them back anytime.
Iris and her family could not have been easier renters. My home was SO clean when I came back that had they not taken the sheets off my bed I would not have known that they had even stayed by me! I highly recommend Iris and her lovely family.
Iris and her family were so clean we didn't even know if they had been there! Super tidy and respectful of the apartment. Come back any time.
Iris was a great guest. Left the house in great condition and was easy to communicate with. All good!
Iris and her family were such great guests! They were so patient and understanding with me when i was running late for check-in. Their daughter is adorable, and they left the house super clean when they left. Highly recommended!!
Iris was the perfect guest!!
East communication and when I returned the apartment was still spotless!
I would definitely rent to her again in a heartbeat :)
Iris si a great guest! No problems, easy to communicate with, tidy. Thanks, Iris! Come back anytime. :)
