Quiet neighborhood in a comfortable rustic modern home. Great light throughout. Charming house with great views. Recently renovated, full bathroom across the hall. Just 10 min. to Santa Cruz and wineries. Great jumping off point.
This listing has been recently been updated to be the entire house while we are out of town.
In our guest room you will enjoy a very comfortable queen size bed with a comfy down comforter and plenty of pillows to suit your needs. The view from your room and the living room both face the back yard where you can see high into the trees and beyond - it's quite serene and relaxing.
There is HDTV in both the living room and your room with plenty of cable channels to choose from.
Our home is filled with our favorite local artist work, paintings, pottery, and photography.
We have also put together complimentary package of wine tastings for our guests to enjoy at some of our favorite local wineries, all of which are located within just a 10-12 minutes drive from the house.
Wines coming out of the Santa Cruz mountains offer comparable quality to Napa Valley (some say better), just without all the tourist traffic :-). We recommend setting aside half of a day to enjoy the tastings and the wineries...you can even bring a picnic lunch to eat and take in the scenery at the vineyards.
Just let us know in advance if you would like to take advantage of the wine tastings so that we set aside the passes for you.
If you prefer not to drive, there is also a local wine touring company that can pick you up at the house and give a guided tour of our wineries. Ask us for more details so you can book in advance.
Want to see the local redwood forests and other nature trails? We can recommend some amazing local hiking spots or you can also book a local hiking guide with packages ranging from 2-6 hours.
Or you may want to ride steam engine through the redwoods, sail on the bay, go whale watching, all of these are right here in our back yard!
Entire upper house excluding 2 of the bedrooms which are closed off, No one else in the house. No back yard access.
While we will be out of town during your stay, you are welcome to text, call or message us with any questions you may have.
We are just 10 minutes from Santa Cruz and normally above the fog line. You will find yourself close to the spectacular Santa Cruz redwoods, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, Santa Cruz Mountains with hiking and mountain biking.

Fun, sociable and adventurous that work hard and enjoy this spectacular region. I enjoy hiking, mtn biking, wine tasting and great restaurants. Getting out and about to Santa Cruz, Monterey, Carmel, Big Sur, the redwoods, beaches and local wineries are some of our favorite things to do. Scotts Valley is above the fog line (for the summer) and is a great jumping off point to the rest of the region.
