A magical Redwood Treehouse located it the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains. There is a live tree growing right through the main living area and another in the bathroom! It is simply incredible. It was built by my friend, Randy, a stained glass artist. Everyone who sees it are delighted by it. Please read entire description before making a reservation request. It has a delicious high-bed, a kitchen with a small stove and refrigerator, and typical cooking tools. There is a full bathroom with shower and toilet of course. There is now a hot-tub at about 103 degrees ready for your soak before bed or a morning treat. The Treehouse is a short walk of a few hundred yards (about four minutes) through the beautiful woods from the parking area. There is a gas stove for heating. There is a TV and DVD player with many movies to choose from. For travelers this is the best of both worlds. A wonderful treehouse nestled in the redwood forest, a short distance to HWY 1(Pacific Coast HWY) the main vein to Monterey, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Big Sur, Capitola and Santa Cruz and the HWY 101 Corridor. 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 a mountain treehouse and quiet. The weather here is excellent. It is located in a micro climate called a ‘banana belt’. Though the beach is only 25 minutes away we are often in the sun when our neighbors in the valley and on the coast are in the fog. Winters are mild we average 25” of rainfall a year. Summers can be warm but delightful. The fog rolling in at night is nature’s air conditioner and everything cools down. The weather is nearly perfect. Fog burns off 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. All linens are provided. The kitchen has the basic items for cooking, i.e., spices, oil, vinegar, sugar, and tea. Two-night minimum on weekends. THREE-DAY MINIMUM on HOLIDAY WEEKENDS. A 60.00 cleaning fee will be charged per each stay. We are a green establishment. Environmentally friendly cleaning products are used. We ask our guests to consider using fewer towels during their stay and not requesting a sheet change unless your stay is longer than a week. I have a moderate cancellation policy.

“My husband and I returned again, this time not to celebrate our marriage but to celebrate our baby arriving in July! This treehouse is a magical sanctuary and we are so blessed to be able to disconnect (truly-no signal/no WiFi) from the hustle and bustle of every day life. We will forever come back to this treehouse as long as we are able. Thank you Mary Jane for creating this space for people from all over to experience!! You and your family are amazing! For first timers: this is a good 30 minutes up windy, dark (at night) roads so it’s easiest to spend your days out and about and get back to the treehouse much before sunset. The treehouse has a full kitchen with everything you need to make meals “at home”. There aren’t a lot of near-by coffee shops and restaurants so truly, just enjoy the treehouse and what it has to offer and lay low ☮️”

“Ray & Cathy have a fantastic property in a great location of La Selva Beach. They are very gracious hosts with plenty of local knowledge on things to do in the surrounding area. Cathy and Ray were very attentive to our needs and made every effort to make our stay a memorable one. Breakfast was particularly enjoyable with an amazing view of the back landscape through the back windows of the house. Easy parking and access to the property was also a plus. You will not be disappointed with this gem of a property! We will definitely keep Cathy and Ray in mind for future stays in La Selva Beach!”
The Lodge at Tangled Oaks is a superbly converted barn on a six acre property on Monterey Bay. Positioned half way between Monterey and Santa Cruz, Tangled Oaks is directly inland from Moss Landing at the center of the bay. The stand alone 1000 square foot Lodge is finished in shiplap walls and tongue and groove ceilings. It has a full kitchen and bath as well as a fenced back yard suitable for dogs. The Lodge is regarded as a warm, welcoming place in a beautiful California country setting.
“The Lodge was a fantastic getaway. It's close enough to San Francisco that it wasn't a long drive, but far enough that it felt like we were away from our day-to-day life. With COVID & WFH, it was really nice to get a change of scenery and stop looking at screens all day. Nancy & Alex provided excellent directions, so we had no problems finding the Airbnb. The lodge is a great size and has a large fenced-in backyard. The backyard is mostly dirt and plants, but there's a small deck area with chairs and lights. The front and back door have bug screens (there's a lot of bugs in the area) and there are also indoor screens you can use for privacy or to block the light. The kitchen was fully stocked, and Nancy & Alex graciously provide oatmeal, honey, milk, coffee, and tea for you to enjoy. If you don't feel like cooking, there are some local restaurants that deliver. We also enjoyed using the wood stove at night. Nancy & Alex provided wood and matches. The Lodge is very well stocked and had everything we could ask for. Thank you for having us!”
