Room and bed were comfy. It is very quiet and serene at Larry's place. Our stay was short but nice. Larry was very friendly and personable. He also assisted us in making changes to our plans which was extremely helpful.

Staying in Larry's house was amazing. He was available to answer any requests and questions since the time I requested a reservation. He was responding to me whenever I needed, I even had a delayed flight and I arrived way past midnight but he was willing to respond and he even woke up at 3:00 am to greet me and let me check in comfortably. I stayed for more than a week, during this time whenever I woke up and found him he would prepare a cup of coffee for me to join him. On the days that I didn't get the chance to see him he would still communicate with me to make sure that he is available and my needs were met. His hospitality was overwhelming. I am really glad I had the chance to know him and stay in the house of this great man. P.S. I fell in love with his friendly puppy, Olive.

Our host Larry was not present upon check in nor did we see him the first two days of our stay. Tea pot near stove was not for boiling water and used on stove to boil water for coffee and exploded. No real damage to pot yet Larry expected me to pay for it? Almost no room in refrigerator for our food. Kitchen table and most other surfaces covered with unopened mail and debris leaving no surface available to eat our food? Lamp not plugged in and wire for lamp pinned under furniture. Had to move to locate outlet and connect. Too many blankets on one bed not enough on the other. House was unlock able? Great location, very quiet. I would suggest that host be available to greet guest and remove debris from eating surfaces.

Response from Larry:
It's clear that Rick hasn't used Airbnb before. If he was so concerned about the state of my house why did he say I had a beautiful house? He's certainly in the minority of my guests. I suggest he stay in a hotel next time.

Larry's place was as advertised. It is located in a gorgeous, serene mountain setting, with a wrap around deck to enjoy the views. The room and bathroom was clean, bedding comfortable, and Larry was friendly. He made sure my family had everything we needed. Overall, it was a restful, harmonious stay. We have family in the Santa Cruz area and we look forward to staying at Larry's place again!

Quiet place with beautiful views! First time living in the redwoods, and it feels so good to be close to nature. My family love this house!

Beautiful view and very quiet, secluded setting in the woods above santa Cruz. Still easy to get into the center of things with a car. Larry was very friendly and helpful.
