All of our family loved staying at this wonderful home away from home! It had everything we needed: privacy, beautiful location, close to small towns and a short drive to Santa Cruz, full kitchen with state of the art appliances, hot tub, spacious back yard, comfortable beds - we cannot say enough GREAT things about this place! We really appreciate...

Management response:

The Santa Cruz Mountains are way too fabulous to keep secret. We love that you loved our place of magic and wonder and look forward to hearing back from you. Each season holds its own gifts of beauty and adventure but the summer season is generally sold out before the end of spring so plan early and let us know...

Myself and 3 friends visited this lovely home so we could be near Santa Cruz and the boardwalk. We had a great time the house was very clean and easy to get to. The kitchen is amazing and well stocked with everything you need to cook your own meals so you're not eating out every night. Very close to a...

Management response:

We are glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for taking the time to review the property. Although Santa Cruz is known for its beaches, the treasures found in the mountains for hiking, redwood trees, and art make it a year round destination area. The winters are generally filled with beautiful days with a few days of down pour...

About the neighborhood
We chose this property partly because of the open flat sunny meadow surrounded by forests with distant mountain views and partly because activities nearby. The Oak Tree speaks for it self, it is AMAZING, as are the birds who come to rest. The redwood forests, beaches, are all with in reach. We are free from traffic, noise, and grime. Mt. Hermon offers a fantastic and rare zip line opportunity as you move from platform to platform through the tree top canopy. Loch Lomond Reservoir offers several different small boat rentals and stock trout, bass, and blue gill.

West Cliff Drive and world famous Santa Cruz Wharf and Beach Boardwalk the are found within 10 miles of our bungalow. We are 200 yards from the Sunset Trail at the Quail Hollow Ranch Park and Nature Preserve in the Santa Cruz...

We are located in between San Francisco and Monterey about 10 miles inland from the beaches of Santa Cruz with access to Hyw 17, Hwy 1, and Hwy 9. This easy access provides the opportunity to see the coast without lots of heavy beach traffic found in town. The costal route from San Francisco airport takes about 1/2 hour longer than Hwy 17 over the coast range but is a stunning drive.
