This is a beautiful, quaint little get away, nestled in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Cricket and stars at night and the feeling of being miles away from the world. Very clean and relaxing with a breathtaking view.

Great location and comfortable mini-apartment. Surrounded by redwoods just above Los Gatos. Perfect for 1 or 2 people / personal or business. Highly recommended.

This is a cool place and the host is nice and cares about your stay. It's sits in a unique location close to downtown Los Gatos and secluded in the woods overlooking the lake.

Great stay in a central location. Even though we stayed during a particularly hot weekend, the property naturally stays cool. Not the largest space, but perfect for 1-2 travelers. The property is beautifully located near a lake and close to Los Gatos/San Jose as well as Santa Cruz. The owner/host lives onsite in a separate room/home above. Marti was very kind, flexible and responsive.

The location is great it terms of getting the outdoor effect while still being close enough to shopping and eating. It's pretty much equal distance to either San Jose, or Santa Cruz. The mileage distance wise though may seem short, but the 17 is the only highway rolling through so depending on events and time of day, it may take a while to reach your destination so plan ahead for that. The host was very kind, timely, and helped us navigate well when we arrived. The area is VERY quiet, so if you're here to socialize, keep in mind it's probably not the best place. It's very quaint, the air is clean, the view is beautiful, very relaxing. I highly recommend for anyone needing a quiet, calm place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
