I could not recommend this place more highly. Hans is incredibly welcoming and friendly, and we loved hanging out with him. Th room is cosy and private, Lucas the dog is a brilliant character, and the view from the patio is amazing. We would not hesitate to go back. Thanks Hans for making us feel so at home.

Hans was a fantastic host who made us feel very welcome. The room was perfect for our stay - very comfy and despite being apart from the house had a good wifi connection. We would definitely recommend staying here to anybody who wants to visit Santa Cruz, Monterey, Carmel etc. Thank you!

Karen and her lovely family were very welcoming - especially Jean Luc the French bulldog! They have a great house in the hills and we were shown every courtesy in our stay - Karen even baked us some awesome muffins for breakfast! Thanks again for having us!

Hans's house was fantastic. Exactly what we needed. Quiet, simple, easy. When you're getting there, make sure and navigate to the Zayante General Store and follow Hans's instructions from there. (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps takes you the wrong way! Hans was super welcoming. We'll definitely be back.

I loved my stay at Hans house! Great conversation and amazing location! You get both of the best world the beach down to Santa Cruz and the forest by Felton. It's really quiet area! Be sure to follow his indication to go to the house, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) don't have the good answer this time.

Response from Karen And Hans:
I’m sorry you felt that way but to each his own. Apparently we didn’t click which is unusual but it’s what makes for different people and different needs. Please let me know how my directions this the house could have been more clear. They are very specific, down to a tenth of a mile so I don’t know what else to do. Same goes for parking instructions and bathroom directions. Both of those felt very clear to me in the lengthy house rules message I messaged out to you but I’m always looking for ways to improve things.

Hans and Karen delight in family, good food, the ocean and did we mention dessert? Sometimes we have a full house of kids, but we've always got room for you. We enjoy meeting new folks and hearing their stories, and of course making awesome stories of our own.
