The cottage was bigger than we expected and had everything we needed for a super-comfy and ejoyable stay. Nearby hiking is spectacular.

Great location in close proximity to Big Basin and Santa Cruz. Property is very quiet and peaceful and space was very clean. We enjoyed staying here in our first getaway with our 6 week old baby!

This is an adorable, clean, comfy, and roomy cabin in the middle of a redwood forest. Only about 30 minutes from Santa Cruz and close to a number of great parks for hiking and cute cafes and restaurants.

This is a beautiful spot to get away and relax. My wife, my daughter and I stayed here for four nights and had a wonderful and relaxing time. The house is surrounded by beautiful redwood trees and has its own private yard with a barbecue and reclining chairs. It was so relaxing to sit out in the yard and just listen to the sounds of the forest. The bed was very comfortable and the house was very clean. It was about a ten to fifteen minute drive to the very charming little town of Boulder Creek and about a half an hour to Santa Cruz. If you want a very quite spot to relax, this house is for you.

My family and I had a great time at the butterfly house is so cozy, clean, is small but when you're inside it looks so spacious, Marrisha is such a great host and respected our space and privacy it felt like we were at home, the house is in the middle of a beautiful scenery, is just about 30min. +/- drive to Santa Cruz. Lots trees, is so peaceful and quiet. Thank you very much Marrisha for letting us stay at your awesome casita (little house) we're definitely coming back, God bless! Abel & Family!

Very Clean. Well equipped kitchen. She even had frosty mugs in the freezer. The final 1/4 mile road up to the house is very narrow and bumpy, but worth it for the peace and quiet. Compared to hotel/motel prices in the area the value was well worth it.

The worst thing about it is also the best. It's tough to locate (follow the hosts directions carefully). Once you're there you'll notice you're basically a alone in a very well kept up mountian house. We had a great time and hope to visit again.

I am a "Nature Bunny" and love living in "Oneness" with nature in this Magical Place. I enjoy a simple, uncomplicated life and appreciate sharing with others who desire the same, if only for a short escape from a more hectic life. Be sure and read all the information provided before booking.
Thanks in advance!
