This is simply an amazing home. Jen and Derrick are only the fourth owners of this 1870s estate built by the owner of the Spreckels company. The house has had an unusual amount of TLC over the years for a place this age. The current owners previous life was as caterers in the Tahoe area and it shows in the... More

I stayed two nights and loved my time at the Sand Rock Farm. Every detail has been thought of by the owner who was very accommodating and kind. The breakfast was sensational. Great restaurants in the area as well. I will definitely go back.

We stayed at Sand Rock Farm to visit the annual Santa Cruz Open Studios art show. Even before we arrived, Kris, the owner and operator of Sand Rock Farm, made sure that everybody had all the important information to make our stay a success. The whole experience is very personalized, and you never feel like some random guest in a... More

Sand Rock Farm is a very well maintained house from the end of the 19th century. The furniture is a reminder of an elegant and distant past, while the Jacuzzi tubs in the bathrooms provide modern era comfort. The charming house, beautiful grounds and delicious breakfast make the stay at this bed and breakfast a very pleasant experience. The scenic... More

This is a beautiful historic place to stay which is very close to the beach, restaurants, wineries and yes Monterey.

We checked in on Thursday and were the only guest. We woke up in a beautiful sunlit room and gazed out the window to lush gardens and a cute little hummingbird. We were greeted with a delicious breakfast, which consisted of fresh picked raspberries from the host's garden, orange juice, coffee, tea, and pastry. The main dish was roasted asparagus... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was charming, yet the amenities were modernized. The grounds were beautiful. We stayed in the Morning Glory room, and had the best night's sleep there in a long time. The in-room Jacuzzi tub was fantastic. When my boyfriend said he wanted a hearty breakfast, Kris changed her menu a bit just for him.... More

Kris welcomed us to the awesome Sand Rock Farm in mid-March as we traveled down the coast. The grounds and home could not have been more unique and comfortable. She had some good recommendations for restaurants and scenery in the area to make our stay well-rounded. The breakfast was so special and graciously served. We could hardly break away from... More
