we re from santa cruz california
We had an amazing time staying at Jerome's home. It was exactly what we were looking for - a beautiful, modern home with a killer backyard and outdoor lounge space to take advantage of the warm Santa Cruz weather. It was extremely easy to coordinate with Jerome, and the ability to use the grill, the deck dining with heat lamps, heated pool, and outdoor sound system really made it feel like a luxury vacation.
The location of the home is also very convenient. It took us only 10-15 minutes to get to the beach, and there's a shopping center with a Safeway, Starbucks, and lots of other stuff about 5 minutes down the road.
I hope to come back and spend another weekend here soon!
We had a wonderful family vacation. The home was lovely, with a beautiful view, and many little spots to sit and read, so we all had our own space and time together. We loved meals on the big porch. Our 6 year old granddaughter spent the whole time in the pool. It was peaceful and convenient to beach and forest. We hope to come stay again.
Spent a week at the Bakum's home in Soquel with our 4 children. Was a great stay. The house was wonderful. The pool and ping pong table created a fun environment when we were not out enjoying the great weather and beaches. Highly recommend.
This is a truly special home combining modern style with a cozy, warm and welcoming vibe. The garden is not to be missed, with heated outdoor dining area, pool and ping-pong table. Spectacular views of the treetops looming above Santa Cruz made even the foggier mornings beautiful. Our toddler was so excited about sleeping in the kids' room bunk bed, and we enjoyed the comfortable mattress and luxury bathroom in the master suite. We would definitely love to come again and enjoy this hidden gem not far from our San Francisco home.
Jerome was a great host he was reliable responsive and flexible about check in and check out times
The weekend in his beautiful house a wonderful experience for our whole family
my kids ad a blast in the pool and the ping pong table
we enjoyed relaxing on the deck and enjoying the views
a great getaway!!!
Jerome has a beautiful house. Everything was clean and in working order. Recommend to everyone.
Thank you Jerome for opening your house to us. We had such a great time. You have a beautiful home. The view is amazing and awesome to wake up to. We enjoyed relaxing and having a little weekend getaway. You did a great job on the renovations (I'm an architect and notice these things;). Hope to book another weekend again.
Please let me know about those chairs!! Super interested. As for little Diego's onesie....if you don't mind mailing it, I will text you over my address. Thanks!!!
My family and I spent 5 wonderful days in this beautiful place.
Jerome was an excellent host who was always very quick to answer our questions.
There was a great information folder regarding house rules, where things are, how things worked etc. The house is located in a very family friendly neighborhood on a hill surrounded by trees and the ocean can be seen from almost every part of the house.
Additionally, with Hwy 1 within 5 minutes, getting in and out of Soquel was a breeze.
With shopping, dining and multiple beaches in close proximity I highly recommend this place when in the Soquel / Capitola / Santa Cruz area.
PS: Epic fireplace Jerome
My family and I just spent 2 days in Jerome's house and we had an amazing time. The house is perfect and we particularly enjoyed the heated pool and the heated patio for late night dinners. We also loved the sunny garden and the ocean views from the front terrace. Jerome is also a very nice and friendly host. Merci Jerome!
Great host and very quiet neighborhood. Beautiful home secluded and lots of light.
Very nice family. Would definitely rent to them again.
Jerome was a great guest. He's welcome back any time!
Jerome, Lisa and Charlotte were delightful guests! They are respectful, quiet, and easy to have stay in our home. I welcome them back anytime!
