This is a lovely cottage property located in forest with easy access to Santa Cruz. The hosts are lovely people, onsite nearby, and available for help and assistance. It's quiet and peaceful with lots of birds and squirrels to watch. Property is a good size with excellent kitchen, bathroom and bedroom facilities and equipment. Everything works and is in good maintained order. We especially liked the large decking area that takes you right into the forest. Excellent for morning coffee or and evening meal. Travel time to SFO and Monterey is about an hour.

We loved our stay at this amazing little cottage. It is located just a couple of minutes off the highway yet seems like you are in your own little world - the perfect place if you want to get away from the city life for a few days. The place was incredibly clean and really beautifully designed. It has a fully functional kitchen which is very handy if you are staying for more than a few days and want to cook your own food. The hosts were great- respecting our privacy whilst also going out of their way to make our stay comfortable; we were greeted with breakfast bars and fruit on our arrival and they collected our delivery parcels. We would be delighted if we could spend a few days here again in the future. Highly recommended!

Michele and Matt created a beautiful and welcoming home for me and my fiance to stay at. Check in and check out was very easy. Our dog Jasper really enjoyed his stay too. It was nice to walk out on their beautiful deck and just enjoy the fresh air. We hope to come stay there again some time.

Cute, cozy, cottage surrounded by beautiful trees and a garden in front. All of the basics were supplied, and the kitchen was spacious for cooking. We had a great stay!

We live on .75 acre near Scotts Valley. We have a private home plus a cottage rental. There is a shop on the property where Matt works as a furniture maker. Michele works full-time in healthcare. We enjoy the outdoors, hiking, cycling, reading, art, movies, and travel. We cross-country ski in the winter and backpack in the summer. We have hosted guests in our home for over 12 years - many from different countries. We enjoy getting to know people and hearing of their travels. We like to cook and eat healthy, organic food too.
