Stay among the magnificent redwood trees. Our home backs up to a secluded gulch with privacy and wildlife. You'll have a spacious, private room and bathroom in a neat home with exceptional tranquility. Forest hikes and bike rides are a must! Pets are ok - $15/day. Sorry, no kids.
3 BR / 2.5 BA 2-story home with fenced yard in beautiful Aptos. We don't have neighbors, so enjoy the relaxing view of the trees and wildlife. We are a 10 minute walk to Nisene Marks State Park, where you can bike, walk, meditate, or just "be" with the enormous and gorgeous redwood trees, calming creeks, fairytale ferns, and photogenic banana slugs. Our home is less than 2 miles from the Seacliff Beach in Aptos, and minutes to East and West Cliff Santa Cruz beaches and boardwalk.
You'll have a large, private bedroom and bathroom with access to our full kitchen, tranquil deck overlooking the gulch, living and dining rooms, and laundry room. The room has blackout curtains and is setup with sleep masks and earplugs so you can sleep soundly. Safe fenced front yard for pups and back deck for doggie (or people) sunning time.
Interaction with guests
If we're home, we can certainly lend a hand to make your trip better. Let us know if you need recommendations for places to eat, drink, bike ride, hike, surf, you name it! We'll hook you up like only the locals can. We do not provide breakfast.
Other things to note
We do have stairs - the bedroom is upstairs. Our dog, Stella, is a 9 year-old Weimaraner and gets along well with other dogs, kids, and adults. We don't own a TV or microwave. We are early risers and will probably be out by the time you wake up.
Please be respectful of our home and treat it as your own. Please clean up after yourself. Quiet time is 10:00pm. Non-smoking guests only. We have a septic system, so only number 1, number 2, and toilet paper can be flushed down toilets. ;)
