The space

** Our road is no longer closed on one end starting August 7th!! No need to take the back way here anymore.

Charming, with a "tree house feel" (250 sq feet) studio apartment. Close to town but surrounded by nature. Coastal redwood trees throughout the property and neighborhood. Take a walk on our private road. Keep going past the open gate that says "do not enter" and look out for bobcats, deer, wild turkey, horses, and a vast array of birds. You have your own private entrance. Full kitchen. Butcher block breakfast bar table and stools. Huge deck surrounded by coastal redwoods and bird chatter. Less than 2 miles from beach. Drive up our road and enjoy a BEAUTIFUL scenic drive to the local egg ranch for fresh organic eggs. The studio is clean and newly remodeled. Small but with a comfy vibe to hang out in. Chill out on the large deck in comfy lounge chairs or sit at the outside dining table and (4) chairs. You park in an uncovered outdoor parking spot. Queen bed, with pillow topper, luxury linens, and down duvet. 4 pillows provided, body pillow available upon request. Coffee & tea bar, basic pantry, full service kitchen.

Guest access

The studio has it's own private entrance. Most likely for check in, it will be left unlocked for you to enter at your convenience. I like to pop down for a brief hello and quick description of the space. The studio is limited to registered guests (1-2 people) and if you would like visitors, please clear this ahead of time.

Interaction with guests

After a brief check in, we interact with you at your request. That being said, we are friendly and open people who enjoy a good conversation (often accompanied with a glass of wine). We have 2 very small children so the hours we keep are limited. You may see or hear us up in the yard as we often toss a ball and bbq most evenings. We are here to talk, answer questions, or make suggestions. Your comfort is our goal! We will, however, respect your privacy and will rarely come down stairs to disturb you. You may see my husband in passing on his way to the garage.


please note** we charge only a nominal cleaning fee, so please leave the studio as clean as you found it.

Other things to note

*The bathroom is quite small and tight for tall people to navigate. It's not a deal breaker, I've heard, but that it is something to note.

*The driveway one must walk up in order to get to the studio is very steep. Then there is a flight and a half of stairs to climb.

*We are on a septic system. Only paper is okay to flush. No wipes (even the ones claiming to be septic safe) allowed. No tampons. Please use provided trash receptacles. Along with being on septic, the pipes are old and ANY foreign objects WILL clog the plumbing. Plumbers in these parts don't come fast or cheap. No one wants your trip to be ruined so observation of this house rule is absolutely necessary!

*There is no disposal in kitchen. Again, please use provided trash receptacles for food trimmings/oil drippings.

*The studio is on top of a single car garage, so a small amount of garage noise is to be expected.

*Because of the quirky wiring, the ceiling fan cannot be run without a light also being on. This just means, the ceiling fan will not be useful for sleeping. We can provide a floor fan upon request.

*Please do not leave food in fridge "for the next guests to enjoy". I like to keep the place clean and fresh for each new guest. This also goes for belongings you no longer want. Thanks for your cooperation.

This was a fantastic stopover spot on our road trip from LA to SF. Great location for dropping into Santa Cruz and Aptos itself has great restaurant options in the evening. Laura's cabin was as described, lovely spot nestled in the redwood trees. Great communication from the host we had no problems finding it or getting access. Definitely would stay again, thanks Laura!

This cabin had a cozy feel which we both enjoyed. It was secluded with offered a great escape from the city. Laura and Max left thoughtful touches through the home with added an extra bonus. I Would highly recommend a stay here.

A wonderful place for a weekend get away. My boyfriend and I stayed one night and it was the perfect place to get away from the city for a weekend. Laura was very helpful and texted us prior to arrival with the address and alternate directions since there was a road closure. Upon arrival, Laura came down briefly to give us a run down of the unit. Everything was sparkling clean, very well decorated and we were greeted with a welcome note, wine and chocolate!! It is apparent that Laura pays a lot of attention to the little things to make your stay very comfortable and top notch. The coffee bar and kitchen were in great condition and fully equipped. We brought food to make breakfast in the morning and utilized the pots, pans, oil olive and all amenities in the kitchen and sat outside to enjoy the delicious breakfast. The porch view outside is incredible. The redwoods, sounds of nature and lighting made the ambience perfect for a cozy morning. I highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to get away for a weekend trip.

The treehouse studio is definitely one of a kind. It was just the perfect spot to not only feel secluded amongst the Redwoods, but a great central location for exploring the coast. It was exactly as described and Laura was an awesome host!
