The space

Our one bedroom cottage located in the Santa Cruz Mountains on a gated property, is a beautiful and comfortable place to relax and unwind. It sleeps 2 - 4 people, with 2 in the queen bed in the bedroom and 1 or 2 in the (full size) fold-out hide-a-bed in the living room.

There is also a single pad with bedding available for inside or outside deck sleeping. Inside the cottage there is a large flat screen TV with cable, a DVD player, and a selection of movies and High Speed Internet. There is also a stereo system and a collection of CD's. We have a full kitchen with an antique gas stove, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, an assortment of tea's, coffee, basic condiments, and the tap water from our well is safe and excellent to drink. There is a wood burning stove in the living room with plenty of wood and the walls are adorned with vintage rock & roll posters. On the deck we have a jacuzzi hot tub, a gas barbecue, and patio furniture. There are large, clear skylights that afford a view of the redwoods while offering beautiful lighting. All linens and towels are provided. Adjacent to the cottage is a hammock and a Chartres labyrinth in the middle of a redwood circle.

For travelers this is the best of both worlds. A cozy cottage nestled in the redwood forest, 10 minutes off of HWY 1 (Pacific Coast Highway), the main vein to Monterey, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Big Sur, Capitola and Santa Cruz, and 6 minutes from HWY 17.

People come from all over the world to experience the Pacific Coast specifically the Monterey Bay area. It is an area rich in history. Here you will find world-class art, music, cuisine, golf, surfing, sightseeing, hiking, biking, sunbathing, whale watching, birding, fishing, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, and so much more. You can spend the day engaged in a variety of activities, physical and/or cultural. However you spend your day, you can return home to your private cottage nestled in the quiet redwoods.

The weather here is excellent. Winters are mild we average 25” of rainfall a year. Summers can be warm but delightful. The weather is nearly perfect. Fog burns off at the ocean early enough to make the beaches comfortable all day.

The Santa Cruz Mountains are home to Sequoia Sempervirens commonly known as a Redwood Tree. They are native only to a specific part of Pacific Coast region. Come and visit our amazing part of the world and experience something special about the California Coast. It is truly amazing to stand on the labyrinth in the middle of 200 foot redwoods. There are 4 or 5 excellent restaurants within 15 minutes of our home.

The caretaker/owner Jay live on the property, along with 2 cats. We are excited about sharing this slice of heaven nestled in the redwoods.

It's all been well reviewed before, so I don't want to dominate the rap, Jack, but if you're on a long strange road trip this is a peaceful place, or so it looks from space. The cabin is a silver lining with just a few touches of grey, but it's alright, you will survive. Once in …

We loved our weekend stay at this cabin. The redwoods were amazing. Jay was a superb host and the property was fantastic, clean, and as advertised. We would stay here again and highly recommend this cabin to others.

Spacious and quiet place in a really nice location. Host was welcoming and helpful. The deck and hot tub were our favorite part of the stay. Short drives to restaurants, beaches, and lots of places to explore.

The place was great - close to the woods and the beach, fun concert posters and big big redwoods popping up everywhere. Jay was a great host.
