Places to stay in Swanton
Precious natural places that are becoming more wild over time are rare in our fast-paced world. We're privileged to live in one of them. The region dubbed “The Slow Coast" is the wild mellow stretch of coastline and mountains south of Half Moon Bay and north of Santa Cruz. Our Cabin is in the coastal redwoods on Mill Creek near Highway 1/ Big Basin and Greyhound Rock Beach. Perfect for couples, solo writers or small families. Explore and slow down.
An open floor plan with a large sleeping loft and wrap around deck. Privately tucked up in the redwoods but just minutes to beaches, trails, farms, food and wine. Enjoy sitting on the deck next to the beehive fireplace in the evenings after playing all day. Soak in the clawfoot tub with your tea or take a rain shower. The cabin's kitchen has an O'Keefe & Merritt Stove and is fully equipped.
Reclaimed timber cabin with open floor plan. On 22 acres with privacy from nearby house, next to Mill Creek. Great for couples and small families. Indoor wood stove, outdoor deck, nestled in redwoods. Swanton Valley is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Coastal redwoods, wildlife and organic farms abound. Our cabin is just a 7 minute drive to some of Highway 1's most spectacular beaches and trails. If you want some nightlife you can drive ten minutes to the Davenport Roadhouse for love music or to Santa Cruz which is a 20 minute drive south. We are also super close to the Highway 1 Big Basin entrance.
  • There are times in life where you just want to get away from it all. Well, this is the place to go if you truly want to be awe inspired by nature. The cabin, nestled in the hill among the beauty of the redwoods was stunning. The musical call of the nearby creak beckoned us to take a walk across a small bridge and deeper into the forest to walk among natures wonders. My poor wife was very much distraught to leave after an all too short a stay. We definitely have this cabin on our places to return for a longer respite.

  • The only reason I’m leaving a 5.0 review is because the scale doesn’t go up to 10.0! This was a perfect getaway nestled among the coastal redwoods with loads of peace and quiet for relaxing and restoring! I thought the cabin not having a tv would be an issue, but we never missed it! Ian was a very professional and polite caretaker; attentive and unobtrusive! It was so nice to unplug and just relax. Definitely going to come back!

    Tamara2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cabin stay in picturesque woods

    Michael2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect getaway from San Francisco. Takes about an hour and fifteen minutes from SF. The place is nestled in the woods. A quaint cosy cabin. The drive to the cabin is also awesome. The place can be easily located in the day time. Late evening can be challenging to locate the place. Although the directions given by the host is pretty detailed. The facilities are good and the place is clean. Parking on site is available. No mobile service but wifi is good. Nothing close by so buy all your supplies u need before u get there.

  • Cabin was a great getaway! The property is amazing with the tall trees and the creek sounds. Perfect place for a relaxing weekend.

    Paul2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Such a wonderful night spend in this cabin in the heart of the forest! Dana is very good host, Ian is also very helpful! We got there a little bit late, it’s pretty hard to find the place in night time, I would suggest to get there earlier before night time. Wonderful and surprising journey!

    Kevin2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin is a dream. The trees, the quiet, the little creek, the proximity to highway 1 and the ocean, the privacy, the fresh air... it's absolute perfection. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    Do you like nature, trees, bird songs and a view of the night sky? Want to feel like you are far away, but only 15 minutes to Santa Cruz? This studio is surrounded by nature, 10 minutes from the beach! Clean, spacious, and fully equipped, can accommodate a small family or group of friends, has mini fridge and kitchen area. Private and beautiful, you will not want to leave! Bathroom has shower and tub. Kids, pets, and all families🌈 are welcome here. Wineries nearby 🍷
    Spacious, fully equipped studio. Queen bed and separate twin sleeper sofa. Clean, light, healing space. 2 kids fit nicely on the sofa, but for 2 adults I could add a comfortable padded cot to the room to sleep 4 . The Studio is connected to the main house, but it allows for a great amount of privacy. It has a small private yard area.
    Quiet forested neighborhood. Big, beautiful properties with deer wandering the yards. Bonny Doon is just a skip from Santa Cruz proper. Up in the forest, quiet and beautiful with great privacy.
  • I love this spot! Super cozy and hidden away. Very clean. Great bathtub and wonderful little kitchen to cook in - with all the utensils you might need. Host was responsive and gave easy, detailed directions. Thank you!

    Beverly2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Arrin’s place. Everything was incredibly clean and beautiful. We definitely enjoyed how serene and peaceful the entire area was. The coffee, tea, and oatmeal were a great touch. We were just a few mins away from Henry Cowell State park and Big Basin Redwood State Park, both of which have some beautiful hikes waiting to be explored.

    Roxana2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location and a perfect little studio!

    Lauren2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • This place is nice to get away and turn off your brain. It’s relaxing and cozy 😍

    Claudia2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Cute studio with all that one needs. We arrived later than we had planned to but Arrin turned the heat on for us so that we could shower and fall into bed in comfort. I found the bed to be very comfortable and there was a delicious tea selection for the morning.

    Māra2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great studio, with a very beautiful woodsy environment. Gorgeous drive up the mountain.

    Igor2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect mountain getaway close to SC. The studio was clean and had all the amenities my boyfriend and I needed for a wonderful stay. Loved having a private patio area to stargaze! The beautiful drive to get there is a little long but totally worth it. Would book again! Thank you Aarin!

    Amanda2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • A studio located in the middle of the woods, very quiet and dark during the night an excellent place to gaze at the stars.

    Suspended in a fairy ring of giant redwood trees, this treehouse is the ultimate romantic retreat. This large two room suite designed by an architect has spacious decks for lounging, a living room with a skylight and a luxurious four poster king looking out over the trees. Your stay includes a "wake up tray" delivered to your hoisting basket daily, a full farm breakfast, complimentary chocolates, sparkling water and flowers. Perfect for special occasions, honeymoons, and romantic reconnections.
    We have high hygiene standards at our very small 4 room BnB. In response to COVID-19, we are following best practices of increased cleaning and disinfecting of all surfaces in guest rooms and public spaces. In the treehouse, a spacious living room, mini fridge, separate bedroom and fireplace await you. Large, wraparound decks are perfect for sitting and lounging under the gigantic redwoods. We spoil you with a premium king bed and fine linens. Bathrobes and slippers are provided. Even in the cool evenings, our open air outdoor shower has plenty of hot water. The treehouse was designed by an architect, with an eye for privacy and luxury. Using the latest suspension systems (as seen on Treehouse Masters), the treehouse is more of a tree mansion, 14 feet off the ground in a giant redwood Fairy Ring. It is lit with romantic nighttime lighting. No chilldren or pets please. FlipJack Ranch is a farm to table bed and breakfast, so the included breakfasts are based on seasonal ingredients foraged on the ranch or locally. And the breakfasts are incredible! Always fruit, juice, some wonderful and different egg dish, perhaps something foraged, well crafted meats, fresh baked scones or an apple galette, homemade jams, etc. We take pride in our cuisine and delight in sharing ranch specialties with our guests. Other services available on request: Upgraded chocolates and flowers for special occassions Welcome cheese and fruit platter Ranch classes: fly fishing, canning and preserving, seasonal mushroom foraging, watercolor painting at the beach.
    Very rural area with pastures and redwood forests. Do not attempt to find this on your own, call for directions in advance. Just 3 miles to Pacific Ocean Beaches, 20 minutes to the conveniences and dining of Santa Cruz. Farm markets and U-Pick Berry farms close by. Hiking trails with views of the ocean or deep exploration of the redwoods close by. Or just walk over to the local vineyard for wine tasting.
  • The treehouse is a total dream! I highly recommend this as a getaway for couples, you retain privacy while also being connected to the main house and bed and breakfast. A note for LGBTQ+ community- they were quite welcoming as a lesbian couple. The breakfasts were delicious, the chickens were charming (you will have to win over Napoleon), you can take a few different creative classes (I really enjoyed the water color session with another guest), and you have access to the hot tub at the main house. A unique experience to remember!

    Veena2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is more than a treehouse. This is an escape amongst the leaves, luxury in the sky, comfort in the branches. Magical. Relaxing. Welcoming. Enchanted. I could go on and on and on, but I instead will say that our stay in the "Romantic Treehouse in the Redwoods" was perfect.

    Jeffrey2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend staying in the Treehouse at Flipjack Ranch. The space is really special and unique. Robin's hospitality made the weekend easy and fun. The breakfasts were delicious, her watercolor class was super fun, and the hot tub was relaxing on a cool evening. Robin even gave me some tips on catching pesky gophers that I plan to use for my garden! Would definitely return.

    Yusuf2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • The word that comes to mind is “magical”. Robin and her husband were fantastic hosts, and the only hard part about it was returning to real life afterwards. We hope to stay again someday soon!

    Sophie2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time at Flipjack Ranch! The treehouse is beautiful and surprisingly roomy. It was peaceful falling asleep to the sound of owls and waking up to the turkeys and chickens. Robin was so kind, we loved the morning tea and coffee tray and her farm to table breakfast was so good. We enjoyed walking around her farm and exploring Santa Cruz and Davenport, which were a quick drive away. We were warm in the treehouse with the fireplace and the outdoor shower was surprisingly warm as well. Overall we loved our experience and look forward to going back soon.

    Abbi2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at FlipJack Ranch was wonderful - the location, amenities, food, property were all exceptional. Robin and Teri made our stay very comfortable and were so hospitable and welcoming. The property itself, especially the treehouse, is so unique and shouldn’t be missed. We would love to come back for another visit.

    Alyse2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • The treehouse is a magical experience! It was clean, cozy, and private. Loved the morning coffee tray, fresh flowers, and excellent creative breakfasts. Robin and staff were so friendly and helpful! Top notch!!

    Chantal2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • The treehouse is magical and romantic. The location is unmatched, and the photos do not do it justice. It was so cozy, comfortable, clean, and stylish. You can tell a lot of love and care went into it. The outdoor shower was quite an experience; I really liked being able to look up into the redwood trees and breathing in the clean, crisp air. Robin, David, Terri, and everyone's hospitality at Flipjack Ranch was so warm and amazing - It truly made us feel welcomed and at ease. We had so much fun using the pulley system to bring up our coffee and tea in the morning; we loved the little touches and attention to details such as fresh flowers and unique serving cups. The farm fresh breakfast, juice, and coffee each morning at the main house was exceptional - SO good that I'm dreaming about it writing this now. In the evening, we used the hot tub at the main house, which was lovely on a cold winter night underneath the stars. During the day, we explored and hiked around the redwood trees surrounding Flipjack Ranch, and even saw some deer and other animals/critters. This was a great location and escape with Bonny Doon Beach and Santa Cruz just 10-20 minutes away by car. We wished we could stay there longer and visit again! Highly recommend you book the treehouse now - You won't regret it!

    Nestled in the Santa Cruz mountains just 4 miles from the beach, 5 miles to Davenport and 9 miles from Santa Cruz (12 minutes by car) sits a magical Yurt situated in a beautiful private fenced half acre garden in Bonny Doon. Experience all that Santa Cruz has to offer then get away from the noise, traffic and bustle of the city and relax in this peaceful place.
    The yurt is 450 sq.ft. of living space with multiple glass windows,wood floors and exotic Moroccan rugs. There is a sink with hot and cold water inside. This is a heated, insulated luxury accommodation . Do not mistake this for a “camping” situation. The newly constructed modern bathroom is detached but only 2 steps from the front door. Amenities include a small refrigerator, electric kettle, toaster oven, coffee maker, plates, cutlery, cups glasses, etc. A continental breakfast is available by arrangement. Snacks, teas and coffee are included. There is a small patio where you can relax and hang outside and a gas barbecue available to cook on if you wish.
    2 minutes away is the Bonny Doon ecological reserve. Over 1000 acres of hiking trails including the famous “Moon rocks” (see photos). Half a mile down the road visit Beauregard vineyard and tasting room 🍷. A little further is Davenport, a scenic little town with restaurants and beaches. Also nearby, experience giant redwoods in Henry Cowell State Park, Big Basin State Park and Fall creek. Visit Wilder ranch. See the elephant seals at Año Nuevo then enjoy numerous quality Westside restaurants of every description.
  • Because of the Covid 19 scare we had to cancel our reservation. Unfortunately we were still planning on going until the day of so my husband and I felt terrible to cancel at the last minute. Peter was very understanding and accommodating to us. He was kind about the whole situation which we really appreciated. I look forward to booking the exquisitely beautiful yurt when all this mess is over! And I know we will enjoy it then more than ever. Thank you Peter!

    Nikki2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay! We loved the yurt and the location is great for being just outside of Santa Cruz. We would definitely stay here again!

    Michael2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Peter's place was a lovely yurt and a great space. I wouldn't say little because it is quite large. It was immaculately clean, very quiet, great place to hang out and not too far from Felton, a town which has anything you might need. One note, if you're tall, do watch your head! Even with a reminder of several bonks, my husband and I still bounced our heads a couple more times before we got it through our thick skulls that the door was not average size! Despite a few light bumps, we'd totally stay again!

    Heather2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place in a beautiful part of the state!

    Maura2020-02-24T00:00:00Z

    Daniel2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely space set in a beautiful garden. You feel like you are away from the busy world in a restful romantic setting. I will come back.

    Kenza2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Peter was the consummate host, accessible and helpful. This was my first time staying in a yurt and it was fabulously cosy, filled with an amazing collection of rugs and wall hangings from Morocco and elsewhere. A perfect space for relaxing, reading and yoga. I think it is even nicer than the pictures show. The bed was comfortable with a view out to a lovely garden. Can't wait to come back in the summer when all will be in bloom and we can stargaze through the dome roof.

    Jenny2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Tucked away in lovely garden under the towering Redwoods Peters yurt provides a perfect balance of a restful escape with spacious, well-appointed accommodations. We loved being so close to numerous beautiful and quiet trails and within a 15 minute drive of Santa Cruz. The rain storm one evening combined with the ultra-comfortable bed lulled us into a deeper sleep than either of us has had in years. Already looking forward to a return visit!

    Houyame2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    David2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We of course wanted to experience authentic Belgian waffles and our whole family agreed that this experience was a much more memorable and engaging way to do it rather than simply buying some at a waffle shop. Dan was very friendly and accommodating. It was nice to have his insight into the local area as well as the coaching. The operation is a bit amateur, but it adds to the charm and authenticity and feels more like hanging out with a friend.

    Daniel2020-02-11T00:00:00Z

    Arne & Inma2020-02-09T00:00:00Z

    This lovely, two bedroom cabin located on 2 acres in the woods is the ideal getaway. It comfortably fits 4-5 and includes a gas-lit stove and full bath/kitchen and library/art studio. Enjoy our goats, chickens and hiking in the mystical forest.
    Includes one queen bed, one king bed and a pull out couch. Gas-lit stove is the ONLY source of heat and adds to the ambiance. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the back or front porches. Full kitchen/bath as well as laundry. No cell phone, or TV, land line is emergency only but does include full internet/wifi service. No smoking.
    Private neighborhood in the Santa Cruz mountains. It's a bit rural, but very quiet and still close to many hiking and mountain bike trails as well as two wineries. Several surf breaks are within 20 minutes. Ideal for a quiet getaway or artists retreat. Perfect location for day trips: 1 hour to Monterey and Carmel, 1 1/2 hours to San Francisco.
  • Nice escape from the hustle and bustle of the cities. There was a lot of activities provided in the cabin which made our rainy weekend a win! Can't forget to mention the two goats across the way, they are very sweet and love the seed that is provided to feed them with. All in all, this is a beautiful place in the Santa Cruz mountains.

    Michael2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing, only 25 mins from Santa Cruz but beautiful wilderness feeling, goats, and the cabin itself is incredible

    Gunther2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • I cannot recommend this rental enough. It was comfortable and cozy and one of the best Airbnbs I have rented. It was the perfect hub for our many day trips and excursions to nearby parks (Big Basin, Henry Cowell, Wilder Ranch, etc.). The location was perfect for our needs (close enough to the sights we wanted to see but in a rural and peaceful area). Our host provided everything we needed to be comfortable and the property itself was gorgeous.

    Leah2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Unique place in the mountains of California... winding roads that are crazy at night! Near the beautiful Henry Cowell Redwoods Park. Nicole was super helpful in answering questions. Comfy beds, kitchen had just what we needed for making breakfast & dinner, loved meeting the goats, chickens and the doggy, Evelyn. Perfect for 5 of us for two nights. Loved being here!

    Janine2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Big Trees Cabin is a lovely relaxing space in a beautiful location. Lots of character and nice touches around the place, we loved going for walks, feeding the goats etc, the cabin has everything you need and is really comfortable. Our host gave good info and kept in touch etc so thumbs up all round from my family !

    Sally2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Nicole was an exceptional host, and the cabin in the redwoods was absolutely lovely. We happened to stay during a weekend of intense wind storm activity during which the entire mountain lost power. The gas stove in the cabin kept us warm and cozy, and we had a great home base from which to explore the area. Beaches, hiking and other activities are just minutes away, but the cabin makes you feel like you are really away from the hubbub of daily busy-ness. The goats were a hit with my youngest daughter, and the cozy reading book thrilled my oldest. We had a fantastic stay, and will definitely be back!

    Molly2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Most charming cabin in the redwoods! Very quiet, peaceful, cozy and has everything for a comfortable stay. Would love to visit again!

    Uliana2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin is an beautiful place and the scenery is awesome. Phone connection is not the best in the woods but not an dealbreaker. Nicole was respectful and responsive our whole 1 week stay. Keep being awesome Nicole.

    Quiet and serene, set among the redwoods and a small fruit orchard in beautiful Bonny Doon. Tastefully decorated in native redwood, with wood flooring and plenty of natural light. With a ten minute drive to the beach and miles of hiking trails nearby, there are unlimited opportunities to explore and discover. Bonny Doon is also a favorite for cyclists. Downtown Santa Cruz is less than a 30 min. drive. Perfect romantic hideaway or active adventure base for a special visit to the coast.
    This beautiful studio apartment is newly built, approx. three years old. It boasts a full kitchen and gorgeous wood floors with radiant heat. Located in Bonny Doon, it offers peace and quiet while being 30 minutes from Santa Cruz, 10 minutes to Davenport, and 20 minutes to Felton by car. Bonny Doon beach is about 8 minutes away, and Beauregard Vineyards winery is a short 5 minute drive. Designed to be spacious and open, with a natural connection to the outdoors, it is perfect for a couple looking for a place to relax and enjoy the ocean and forest or a multitude of outdoor activities.
    Ours is a very quiet and friendly area in the redwoods, 4 miles inland from the coast. Most neighboring parcels are 2.5 acres. Everyone appreciates privacy and the natural beauty of the forest. We also have many delightful furry and winged neighbors.
  • Laurie's lovely mountain suite....ahhh! We will DEFINITELY return! Laurie is so kind and hospitable. Tazzy and Pearl, her amazing border collies made us feel extra welcomed! Ya'all need to check this pace out!

    Jerry2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Loved our time here! Very beautiful and clean space great for a weekend of recharging. I would definitely recommend anyone who wants to have a weekend away stay here!

    Debbie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a wonderful time at Laurie’s place! The studio was comfortable, clean, thoughtfully designed and located on such a beautiful property. Laurie was super quick to respond to my inquiries and very flexible with accommodating our late check in. We are already trying to find another time to escape to her sweet little place in the woods.

    Korina2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great spot for anyone looking for extremely comfortable accommodations on their coastal woodland retreat. The location is perfect for hiking in several nearby state parks, and it’s also a short drive to Santa Cruz. The room was clean, spacious and cozy, and we slept very well on the comfortable mattress. The property has a nice garden with fruit trees, and we enjoyed drinking tea and wine at the picnic table under the stars and the redwoods. My only complaint is that two nights was much too short a trip, and we’re hoping to be back soon for a longer stay!

    Ellen2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • This guest suite, in a gorgeous setting, is perfect! It’s clean, quiet and peaceful.

    Totally unwind as you relax in this quaint 2 bedroom 1 bath home with a well equipped kitchen and lush backyard. This hidden gem of a neighborhood is just ½ mile north of the small beach town of Davenport. Surrounded by protected open space and just 9 miles north of Santa Cruz. You won’t find another small beach town like this in California. Truly a peaceful escape with plenty of fun to be had within a walk or bike ride.
    We are honored to host our home and know that you will respect the neighborhood vibe. With 1 king, 1 double and a pull-out single that’s great for a child, your family or small group will enjoy the coast and have a relaxing time. It’s quite special. This is a lovely home great for families or small groups. It's a quiet and private neighborhood. Must respect the quiet times. And no parties. Thank you!
    When you’re ready to explore, walk or bike down a beautiful country road to soft sand, surfing or captivating tide pools at Davenport Landing Beach. Go the other way to downtown, have a wonderful meal, grab a cup of coffee, wine taste at Bonny Doon Vineyard tasting room, hear live music and watch the sunset at Davenport Beach. Take a stroll to see St. Vincent DePaul Church, that Ansel Adams made famous in one of his photographs. A short drive and you can pick-your-own at Swanton Berry Farm, see a 4000lb sea lion at Año Nuevo Beach, take a long barefoot stroll on Scott Creek Beach, have a picnic at Greyhound Rock Park or discover Shark Fin Cove. Epic beauty awaits your easy exploration.
  • This place is ideal. You won't regret staying here. Perfect distance from Santa Cruz in a sleepy little cottage with outstanding gardens and amenities.

    Jason2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • A nice place, comfortable and a short walk to amenities - church, restaurant, bakery, etc. Quiet, for sure, and scenic. We enjoyed it!

    Mark2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • I would highly recommend Laila’s place. This is my second time staying here and I already look forward to my next visit! A beautiful and quiet retreat in a wonderful location.

    Lee2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • What a magical spot! Close to the beach and cute little town. Yard is protected from the wind and warm. Our kiddo enjoyed the play structure. Cozy couch and beds. Nice sheets and towels. We did not do any cooking but the kitchen seemed well-appointed. Would love to come back!

    Liz2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great place in a quaint little town. Spend the day in near by Santa Cruz, and the evening hanging out with locals at the restaurants.

    Adam2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Laila's home in Davenport is such a wonderful place! It's at the end of a road, with views of the grassy hill, barn, and even the ocean. We loved having access to the loaner bikes, for a ride into Davenport, and the house is perfectly appointed! I found that the pictures do not fully show the loveliness of the home, so expect even better than what is shown! The Whale City Bakery seriously has the most yummy treats EVER (must get jam-filled croissants). We enjoyed nearby hiking in Felton, hung out in Santa Cruz, and then headed to Half Moon Bay on our departure day. Davenport is a really charming town, and Laila's place is a perfect place to relax after enjoying the small town cuteness. Laila is also really helpful and communicative. Awesome place & host!

    Sara2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet spot close to amazing beaches, hiking and some great reasturants. Really enjoyed it for a weekend getaway

    Natalie2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Laila's place is in a quiet little community that is surrounded by fields on one side and US1 and the Pacific on the other. It is a short, fun walk to the little town of Davenport where there are a couple places to eat and a liquor store. Across the highway there is the Pacific, and you can enjoy the view from the cliffs or scramble down to the coves. Everything you need is in the house, including laundry in the back. Definitely a treat!

    Bessie is a very livable 30' Silver Streak trailer set on beautiful flat, sunny land just a stone's throw from the coast. Set at 1000' elevation just above Davenport, the climate is ideal year round. There is a full kitchen and bath although the shower and trailer are not ideal for tall guests.
    Guests can enjoy dining outside or at the built-in counter indoors. Bessie is set in a sunny spot bordering a Christmas tree farm. The 10 minute drive to Davenport or the 20 minute drive to Santa Cruz is very scenic and pleasant. There is limited cell service in Bonny Doon but Bessie does have WiFi.
    The space is generally very peaceful but we are in a neighborhood so you might hear kids, mowers or other equipment at times. At night coyotes and owls are common and the crows like sunrise. Occasionally the stray peacock, wild turkey or rooster can be heard in the distance. I do have a neighbor with very bright lights at night which does not impact the interior but stargazing immediately outside can be compromised.
  • Words can’t really begin to describe how much I enjoyed my stay here. The location is off the beaten path and quiet but had easy access to nearby beaches, towns, and hikes (and it is so quiet at night); the space is cozy and quaint even if it is small (it feels a lot larger when you open the shades covering the windows); I was able to prepare a few meals in the kitchen with ease and didn’t need to bring any of my own kitchen supplies; and Sophia is one of the sweetest and most generous people that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting - she offered my partner and I frittata in the morning, gave us a potted plant after we inquired about something growing near the entrance of Bessie, and offered to let us stay past check-out because no one had the space reserved after us. Beautiful Ol’ Bessie has some quirks, but Sophia left clear instructions on how to navigate these quirks. There is a shower, but it is cramped and don’t try running a sink with hot water while showering with hot water. I am definitely returning here in the future.

    MacKenzie2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • I’ve been to many Airbnbs around the world and Sophia is definitely one of the most caring and helpful hosts I’ve met. We were showered by her warm hospitality. Really appreciate all her local tips. She notified us immediately when the road was blocked by a fallen tree and made sure we knew the alternative route. Her airstream is sparkling clean, bed is warm and comfortable and she has all the amenities we needed. We had such wonderful time we would highly recommend her place to anyone.

    Elley2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Sophia has a really special and unique listing in a beautiful and quiet place. If you don’t need all the fancy amenities and want to get away for a few nights, this is a great place to do it. Close to the ocean and Santa Cruz, it’s the perfect place to set up base for a quick trip!

    Tylo2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying in Bessie! What a cool idea - I know my friends are going to go crazy when they see my pictures. Bessie was clean and well cared for - what she lacks in luxury she makes up in style and quaintness. Sophia is a lovely and attentive host - she was available for us immediately when we needed something. We can't wait to stay there again!

    Leslie2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy get away spot, perfect home base for exploring the nearby beaches and red woods

    Ashlin2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Sophia’s place was wonderful! We had a great time, and would definitely come back.

    Anuja2019-05-18T00:00:00Z
  • I really enjoyed my stay in Bessie. She is an airstream so understand that and you will have a great time. The bed was totally comfy, the towels were fluffy and Bessie was charming. Sophia left coffee, tea and treats in the galley, was very communicative, and totally respected my privacy. I can’t even articulate how lovely the property is, and I had forgotten what true silence is like. It is truly peaceful there.

  • This place was absolutely amazing! The ranch itself is huge and surrounded by redwood trees. Robin greeted us right when we pulled up. She even offered to help us with our bags. The cowgirl room was so cute and cozy with the fresh flowers, roaring fire place and chocolates on the bed. Unfortunately it was raining the weekend we stayed so we didn't get to explore as much as we would have liked, but even that couldn't have put a damper on our weekend. We woke up to fresh coffee and almond biscotti in the morning and then a delicious farm to table breakfast in the kitchen. It was such an awesome experience we can't wait to come back! Robin and her team will make you feel right at home. Thank you for such a relaxing weekend!

    Katie2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • The FlipJack ranch was amazing! It was the best breakfasts of my life! The extra touches made us feel special. A coffee and herbal tea tray delivered each day to us to start our day, a ranch tour, friendly banter and little treats on our pillow were just a few of the extras! We will be back and will stay in the tree house next time!

    Joyce2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Flipjack Ranch was a wonderful place for our get-away long weekend! Usually we think of B&B as bed and breakfast but in this case, we'd say it was Breakfast and Bed!! The experience was truly farm to table with fruits picked from their trees and greens foraged from the farm. The breakfasts were hearty and served us well for our 10 mile hike at the nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods and our several mile walk and picnic the next day at Pajaro Dunes. The dining room also added to the experience with the large wall of windows, beautifully decorated farm table, cozy fireplace, and resident friendly cats. In addition to many decorative touches and fresh flowers, the Cowgirl room had a comfortable king-size bed and bedding and a cozy corner fireplace. We both slept well, and after waking up refreshed , we took our morning wake-up tea (or coffee) service in our room as the mornings were a little chilly. There was a cute outdoor patio right outside, however. The whole property itself was amazing with its redwoods, other trees, farm and farm animals. Though we did go for our own short walk on our arrival day, we were unable to take advantage of the offered farm tour after breakfast as we had planned the long hike. There is a hot tub, which we didn't use (we forgot bathing suits) but the nights were so quiet and serene, we felt thoroughly relaxed just being there. Flipjack Ranch does offer other activities, such as water color painting on the beach and canning techniques, which we didn't participate in this time, but maybe someday in the future! We can't thank Robin, David, and ranch manager, Teri enough for our wonderful stay!

    Manisha2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Flipjack Ranch. The food was absolutely delicious and everything was well thought and executed with care. A perfect place for a weekend getaway - or a longer one :) We’ll be back!

    Katri2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I wanted to see the elephant seals at Any Nuevo and do some exploring around Santa Cruz for a few days. Flipjack Ranch was right in the middle and worked out great. The grounds are fun to explore, we met some chickens, bunnies and a peacock, and became good friends with two cats. The farm-to-table breakfasts are simply amazing. We would definitely stay here again.

    Russell2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time and really appreciate all of the staff at Flipjack Ranch. The hospitality was excellent, the breakfast was delicious, and Hazelnut the cat was a delight. I will highly recommend staying at Flipjack Ranch to all of my friends.

    Aaron2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy, warm, and private room sourrounded by redwood forest accompanied with a gourmet breakfast everyday...heaven! We enjoyed walking the grounds, visiting the animals, and sitting around the fire. The jacuzzi was perfect in the crisp air. Robin and her husband are generous and thoughtful hosts and we plan to stay again in the future.

    Annie2019-11-17T00:00:00Z

  • Had a wonderful stay in the cowboy room with two friends. The wood burning fireplace is super cozy. The morning coffee/tea delivery is a great way to start the day and the breakfasts Robin and Teri prepared were amazing. There's lovely redwoods around the property along with a gorgeous peacock, deer, chickens, turkeys and rabbits. The hot tub is a perfect end to a day of exploring. We took a hike near the beach and a tour of the Wilder Ranch old dairy farm. I'd suggest bringing a few snacks and drinks to store in the mini fridge. Have fun!!

    Shawn2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Prepare for an ideal gateway to the redwoods around Santa Cruz with your ideal hosts. The location is perfect for anything you might do, from exploring to surrounding area to staying at Robins place enjoying the local hikes, the hottub and the pool. Also, wear your stretchy pants as the food at Robin for breakfast is exquisite. Both dishes we tried we completely new to us, and thats saying a lot how much we travel around the world. Perfect start to the day is you want to hike or maybe just take a nap. Looking forward to coming back to Robins place for future adventures.

    Aleksey & Diana2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay in the Cowboy room. Rustic and very nice. We loved just enjoying our stay and reading and relaxing around the grounds and was actually a good jumping off point for me and my wife to the different areas that we wanted to explore in the Santa Cruz Mountain. The breakfast was awesome each morning and we really enjoyed having our coffee early in the morning and just enjoying our time on the patio reading our books. Very relaxing if you are just looking to get away for awhile. We recommended this place to other family members and friends already and hope to be back again sometime.

    Bryan2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Our family had a wonderful stay at FlipJack Ranch. The 1880’s farmhouse was so charming. We enjoyed hiking around the grounds and our daughter especially loved checking out and feeding the animals. The hot tub was divine, and the setting couldn’t have been better-nestled in the redwoods and just a short drive to the coast. But best of all were Robin’s delicious breakfasts!! We highly recommend this beautiful spot!

    Rachel2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Wow - what a weekend. We stayed in the Cowboy Room and it was incredibly charming and romantic. It was cold and rainy while we were there, which we loved - rain on the roof with a fire blazing, cozied up. Went for a walk in the forest behind the property and saw all kinds of beautiful mushrooms, moss-covered redwoods, and banana slugs. Magical. Coffee delivered to our door (with a soft knock, no request for entry) at the time of our choosing, complete with steaming hot blueberry muffins fresh from the oven, was just the beginning. Breakfast at the communal table, with the fireplace going and beautiful views to the forest outside, was phenomenal. Two courses plus coffee and juice (freshly made quince juice one day, the most amazing apple cider next day)...a fluffy egg popover with eggs from their own hens, salad from their garden, edible flower garnishes, toast soldiers with bacon and perfectly soft-boiled eggs. Just. So. Delicious. Fun to visit their farm bunnies, chickens, turkeys, and even a friendly peacock! Lovely people, lovely place. We hope to visit again when it's warm to use the lagoon pool.

    Jen2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Robin, Teri, and David have created a truly charming place and experience! It's easy to see that they pay attention to the tiniest of details and put a lot of care into making their guests feel happy and at home.

  • Everything about Flipjack Ranch is amazing. Beautiful, peaceful setting, comfortable, well-appointed rooms, tremendous breakfasts and amazing hospitality. If you go, do yourself a favor and leave plenty of room in your plan to just hang out and enjoy the ranch—something we wished we had done more of. Next time for sure.

  • Absolutely delightful place! Loved the location, the setting, the quiet, and all the wonderful little details — special tastes of foraged mushrooms made into ice cream, fresh flowers from the garden, visits from the local peacock, amazing food, and of course all the little furry and feathered critters. Robin and Terry are lovely, and so is this place. We will definitely be back!

    John2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing find in the redwoods!!!!Thoroughly enjoyed the quiet of the trees and exploring the property which has a lot of wonderful little touches and finds. It has wonderful amenities such as a jacuzzi and a black bottom pool which was great to take a dip in at night and star gaze. The stars are what I miss the most living near a city. The breakfasts we had were superb - and Teri even served my husband and I desert first which is one of those priceless touches which we shall never forget. We will definitely be back to visit when we are up north because it’s a hidden gem in the mountains with warm and inviting hosts. And we certainly will stay longer next time we visit.

    *Only for those who want to unplug and unwind * No Wi Fi* *no cell reception there is a land line to use in emergency* Large one room on second floor of barn in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Looks out on a "fairy ring" of redwood trees. This is a barn so horses do sleep below you at night. We clean ourselves and DO NOT CHARGE an extra fee but it is a Barn - more glamping than motel/hotel . Sorry not amenable for self check in. For safety need to greet/orient you to property.
    It is very much like a tree house . All you can see from windows are the large trees and sky . Small deck outside room to observe the night sky. The beds- 2 queen size air mattresses covered with foam toppers good quality sheets and quilts. Beds are regular height off floor and there is on one double futon ( very firm) Almost no car traffic . also the forest muffles sounds making for a very quiet environment , but might hear horses shuffling in stalls below you. The 3 piece bathroom is across the yard at the back of our garage - for your private use. the shower is over a claw foot tube so need to be able to step in . great for a soak if you like baths, Hot and cold watertaps outside to rinse after beach adventures .
    Our road is a mile long with only 6 homes > We share our driveway with one other house> please be respectful of their privacy . There is a nice walk just to the mailboxes and a nature preserve just across the street for a longer walk. Moon Rocks in preserve good for a light climb
  • Last minute trip and was amazing!!! We had a great time at the barn with my little family, we enjoyed everything about being there.. the nature, the animals..everything was perfect. Eric and Barbara are so sweet and they had everything ready for us even that we did a reservation a day before. The barn is warm and cute and has everything that you need, they left yummy goodies in the refrigerator and brought breakfast for us :) The location is perfect, just a few minutes away from the beach! Beautiful place to go and unplug. If you need some quite time, this is the place! Thank you guys for share your home with us and for being such an amazing hosts!

    Daiana2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • I have stayed here twice in the past 3 years and honestly it is still my favorite Airbnb, the location is breathtaking, the hosting is always so nice and helpful, I love listening to Barbras and Eric’s stories. You can’t beat staying here, not many can say they have stayed in a barn but you can if you stay here. The barn is really nice with wood flooring and exposed beams. You can see so many gorgeous views just from your window, it’s about a 2 minute walk to the bathroom however the weather was great and it’s nice to have some fresh mountain air, plus waking Up in the morning to go gives me time to do my morning rounds to see the animals. I love this place and definitely will be staying here again.

  • Eric & Barbara’s place was such a unique experience. We loved the barn and the horses. Barbara had great suggestions for things to do. The place was in a great location we were able to go hang out on the beach, went to the Winchester Mystery House, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Santa Cruz Boardwalk all in 3 days. The local restaurant had great food.

  • Go visit your eccentric great aunt and uncle at their little farm in the woods. Perfect for someone who likes the countryside and has spent too much time in the city. What I deeply appreciated is that they have a lot of animals and all of them are clearly well cared for. All the animals are friendly and well mannered, look healthy and have soft coats (always a good sign of good people). Eric and Barbara are lovely and have great suggestions of things to do in the area. I think 70% of our trip was influenced by Barbara's recommendations and we have more ideas for next time.

    Annie2019-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • Eric and Barbara are very kind and hospitable hosts with a very nice spot. My advice is to watch out for the viciously adorable dogs, and make sure to say good night to your horse neighbors.

    Joseph2019-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay at the barn. Our 2.5 year old loved the horse and peacocks. Barbra and Eric were great hosts insisting to guide us in late on a rainy Thanksgiving night. Awesome location in the woods of the Santa Cruz mountains. Bathroom is a short walk from the barn, but Eric and Barbra make it very welcoming. Lots of great treats for breakfast too. Thanks!

    Ryan2018-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • The barn loft is wonderful. A peaceful spot in the redwoods, we will be back.

    Tim2018-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Our hosts we're very kind and had everything we needed. They even gave us some great suggestions on where to go and what to do while we stayed. We enjoyed the perfect getaway in the mountains and loved all the animal life surrounding us at the barn. All together a wonderful trip.

    Our large sunny studio is in the Santa Cruz mountains above Hwy 1. Opt for a quiet weekend on the property or venture out for easy access to wine tasting, biking, hiking, surfing or playing on the rugged north county beaches.
    Each day as we drive up the mountain to our home we feel the rest of the world slipping away. If you are looking to get away to a quiet, rural location where you can easily access trails for riding or hiking, north coast beaches, wine tasting and dining - this is your spot. We live on a 1.5 acre property that is open and sunny, at the edge of the redwood forest. The studio you will be staying in has it's own access and is over 450 square feet. The studio is heated and contains: • King size bed • Full bathroom • Futon couch - not suitable for sleeping • TV & DVD player - no cable • WiFi • Closets & dresser for clothes storage • Dining table and chairs for two • Small refrigerator • Toaster oven • Microwave • Electric Kettle • Cutlery, plates, bowls, cups and mugs • Knives, can opener & bottle opener • Phone (landline) cell phone service is unreliable We do not have a kitchen in the studio but feel free to bring prepared foods that can be warmed up. We do have dishes & cutlery and basic kitchen utensils. We provide tea & coffee along with some simple "instant" breakfast options and snacks. You can get a warm drink & snack and then drive down to Davenport (10 minutes away) for a meal. The studio is clean, spacious, and filled with natural light. It comfortably accommodates two people.
    We live in a small rural neighborhood where all of the lots are at least 1 acre. At night don't be surprised to hear coyotes or owls, and when it's clear with no moon the stars are bright and you can see the Milky Way. The neighborhood is quiet, and we ask our guests to be respectful of the quiet and the overall environment. Our larger neighborhood includes Davenport and many beautiful and rugged beaches along Highway 1. If you would like to hear about local hikes and beaches please ask us. Easy access to State Parks: • Fall Creek ~5 minutes • Coast Dairies ~10 minutes • Wilder Ranch ~15 minutes • Big Basin (Waddell Beach) ~20 minutes • Ano Nuevo - under 25 minutes
  • This is a great place to stay if you want privacy, to get away from the city, to be in the forest, to relax, to be near Santa Cruz and coastal beaches. I value sleep a lot. So I have to mention that the only downside for me was that the bed is very soft and my back was hurting.

    Ryan2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Looks rustic from outside but lovely on the inside. Nice quiet setting.

    Deborah2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay and had all the amenities we needed. Next to Beaugard winery and close to the coast.

    Florence2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • The room was very spacious and cozy. Lots of natural lighting, which may wake you up in the morning if you're sensitive to that sort of thing. The bed was so comfortable that it was impossible to get up before 8am. This place is also pretty nice for star gazing. Saw a few shooting stars! Would come again if the opportunity presents itself

    Sarah2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay here was wonderful! The drive there was gorgeous and the studio was cozy yet spacious, comfortable, super clean and had everything we needed. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay while visiting friends in Santa Cruz. We highly recommend Alyssa's place and would definitely book again.

    Therese2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re looking for a sincerely quiet escape, look no further. We loved not hearing a single sound during the afternoon and it turning into crickets and frogs into the night. Pitch black nights make it an amazing location to see the stars and Galaxy. Alyssa and her husband made sure we were comfortable throughout the weekend. We look forward to another stay with them down the road.

    Charles2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Loved the stay, beautiful location if you are looking for a quiet and remote getaway. Close to the beaches and trails, but be aware you will be driving up and down the windy hill every time you want to hit the beach or go into town! We will definitely be back!

    Chelsea2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • I can highly recommend a stay at Alyssa’s place. Her place is big, clean and located in a nice area. We felt welcome and Alyssa communicated fast!

    Redwood circles, songbirds, lawns, verandahs, hammocks, starry skies. We have two private guest rooms. Microwave/mini fridge/coffee maker in each room. Room with Outdoor jacuzzi spa or indoor roman tub, high ceilings, fireplaces - Private Entrances, Choice of Queen (The East Room) or Full bed with additional twin bed in loft (The Garden Room). Pet-friendly. We are very Green-conscious in all that we do.
    Located in beautiful Bonny Doon. Drive to Big Basin State Park, Henry Cowell trail head, UC campus, uncrowded north coast beaches, historic Felton (Roaring Camp RR) and Davenport (Bonny Doon Tasting Room just in front of the old jailhouse.) Bonny Doon Eco Reserve is a short walk from our door.
    No sidewalks, but plenty of beautiful walks. The "center" of our Neighborhood is the country school and church - school bell chimes through the arbors on weekdays. On Sunday Morning, the little Church bell calls. 2 mi walk to the Beauregard Vineyards and tasting room. Close by Bonny Doon Ecological Reserve is 200 acres of both easy and challenging hikes.
  • A perfect place to stay. Where the redwoods meet the coast. The room was beautiful and cozy. The hot tub was perfect. So glad to have found this place.

    Leslie2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Sitah is an amazing host, she was very accommodating, took the time to show us how to start and use a wood-burning stove and did I mention she has a very sweet dog named Bella? Me and a few friends along with a canine pal wanted to do kind of a ‘last minute’ vacation to get away from the city a bit and this was one of the few Airbnb’s available in the area that was willing to book us so soon. If you’re looking for a real ‘into the woods’ getaway I highly recommend Sitah’s place. It’s tucked in nicely in the redwoods with a neighboring elementary school and a few houses, but they’re all generously spaced apart. During my stay I took in the environment around us and it was awesome, the neighbors have two black cats that come around the garden sometimes, they took a liking to us and would follow us around the garden like from a fairy-tale book! Also tried out the hot tub when it was dark and I haven’t seen so many stars in the sky in awhile, could almost make out a bit of the Milky Way! All in all this was a last minute trip that ended up exceeding my expectations and I felt completely spoiled during my stay there and when the opportunity arises I will come again!

    Wen2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Sitah and Dale are the most gracious hosts. Their home is magical beyond description. The room was spotless and very well appointed. The bathtub was a wonderful surprise. Sitah was so attentive and thoughtful to have the jacuzzi hot and ready for my arrival. She then heated it up again the next evening! This is a 10 star experience. I will return as soon as possible

    Andrea2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet and restorative.

    Goddess Joy Palm2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Sitah was an incredible host with an equally incredible space. We spent the weekend in the Rosewood room and it exceeded all expectations. Hot tub was great and location was phenomenal!

    Daniel2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • If you're looking to be lost in the woods in a beautiful place, this is your spot. Sitah was super friendly and her dog Bella was a great playmate for our dog Lucy. The room was very cool, amazing shower/bath and Sitah is definitely a world citizen. The room was enamored with wonderful art from Asia bought with a discerning eye. Pretty much a dreamy place in the redwoods where you can spy the stars from the private jacuzzi. We loved staying here.

    Stephen2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • A truly beautiful and unique place. The room with fireplace was perfect for a night of relaxation. Comfy bed and peaceful environment. Sitah was tremendously kind!

    Linda2019-10-13T00:00:00Z

    Built with love and care from reclaimed fir, and appointed with high quality, sturdy fixtures, this house is truly remarkable. Escape the fast-paced world completely and explore this remote and natural forest haven surrounded by waves and wildlife.
    There isn't another house quite like this. Built with love and care from reclaimed old growth Douglas fir beams and planks, large stones and appointed with high quality, sturdy fixtures you'll immediately feel "at home". Our home has been used for corporate offsite meetings, team building events, photo shoots and private parties.
    This region is the mellow stretch of coastline and mountains between Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz. The house is located a short drive from world-class nature reserves, great organic food, local wine, remote beaches, and miles of wild hiking trails.
  • What a dream house, property and getaway. I wish I lived here with my family. The caretaker Ian, went above and beyond to help us ladies get firewood and even started it for us. What a gift to share this lovely home and property with others. Thank you for the wonderful stay. Hoping to make it back!

    Stormy2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

    Peter2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Really wonderful weekend getaway. Pizza oven was a wonderful activity for a large group of friends to partake in. Almost no cell service or internet made it a distraction-free time to reconnect. Strongly recommend.

    Yasmin2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • This house was beautiful! I booked it for a one overnight company retreat. Everyone had only positive things to say about the place. It's a great place to unplug and have team bonding activities. Dana's husband greeted us and took the extra time to give us a tour of the home. Pros - very cozy - nicely decorated - beautiful scenery - hot tub - overall nice amenities and friendly hosts - very spacious Cons - poor wifi ( we were warned, plus 17 people trying to log on doesn't help lol) - double booked cabin We did pay extra for the corporate package which was suppose to include the house and the nearby cabin as well as flexible check in time, but it wasn't discovered until later that the cabin had already been booked for the same day. This would have been a real disaster if all 17 of us were planning to spend the night, luckily only 8 of us actually spent the night, so we were able to fit in one house. Dana did try to fix the issue by allowing me to come a day early to set up and kept her promise of flexible check in. She said a refund would be given when I checked in, but nobody mentioned it when I got there. I will have to follow up on this. Overall, our company had a wonderful experience, and employees were talking about renting out this property for family events in the future!

    Curt2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful remote get away with a group of friends for new year's. Lots to do on the property with wood burning stove for pizza, bon fire, and hot tub. Wifi is not the strongest, which makes it all the easier to unplug. Would absolutely recommend this stay.

    Megan2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • This beautiful rustic home was just what our family needed and wanted for a peaceful holiday getaway!

    In the Santa Cruz Mountain environs of UCSC, we are above North Coast beaches, surrounded by lush coastal redwoods and rural quiet. "Town" is a short drive - restaurants, pubs, entertainment.
    Redwood circles, songbirds, lawns, verandahs, hammocks, starry skies. In-Room microwave/mini fridge/coffee maker. Indoor Roman Tub, high ceilings, and wood-burning stove, with Private Entrance, and Queen Bed. Pet-friendly. We are very Green-conscious in all that we do.

  • Really nice place. Super dog-friendly--thanks for inviting our dog into your home when she had some unexpected separation anxiety!

    Alicia2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • A magical place to stay. Sitah and Dale are truly amazing human beings. They made us feeling like Family. Coming from Hawaii it’s what we ALOHA!!

    Jon2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Our hosts were so kind and welcoming to me and my partner. The place was so beautiful and the environment was something surreal for someone who grew up in the city like me. There is also a jacuzzi near the room, and an area to walk around the back. Overall is was a great experience.

    Dariush2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Redwood Croft is a magical place. Peaceful surroundings, beautiful gardens, very comfortable living space, and the lovely host Sitah make this place a standout among airbnbs. Perfect for rest and relaxation.

    Marybeth2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Close to the beach and great hiking -- relaxing spot to unwind. Sitah was incredibly kind. Plus very pup-friendly! Will definitely return.

    Allison2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • Sitah was so warm and welcoming and her studio and surrounding garden area are a relaxing dream! We found some nice hiking trails a little ways down the road. Location was just far enough away to feel like we had really been able to hide out. Just lazed around the whole time. Wonderful stay! Had a microwave, mini fridge and coffee pot. Just enough for what we needed and knew we wouldn’t be able to do much prep or cooing, which was a welcomed break. Loved having no TV. Felt wonderfully unplugged! Amazingly peaceful stay!

    Michelle2019-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I were in Santa Cruz for a wedding. We wanted a romantic stay in the Redwoods and Sitah's place was perfect. The East Room is such a treat - gorgeous bathroom, wood burning fireplace, and windows that make you feel like you are sleeping in a Redwood Forest, which you are! The property is beautiful and Sitah's hospitality was great. During our stay, we had a transportation snafu (that had nothing to do with our hosts) but Sitah went way above and beyond to help us. We were so grateful! We'll definitely stay here again next time we are in the area.

    Kate2018-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Sitah and Dale couldn't have been more thoughtful hosts. Their charming compound is surrounded by redwood groves. While resting on our comfy bed, we enjoyed viewing the redwoods though the skylights of the cathedral ceilings. The greeting committee included Sitah and her sweet dog Bella. We toured her property with our happy dog in tow. The dog friendly fenced-in space gave our pup lots of free roaming without a worry. Not only does Sitah have an accomplished design sense for the suite, but also a magical landscaping skill. The property offered a restful space.As we were here in August, the room was warm in the day, but very cool and comfortable with fans at night. We will definitely consider returning and strongly recommend Sitah and Dale's place.

  • This is a wonderful place and it is way out of the way in the redwoods. The hosts are kind and helpful. We had a special time there and as long as you know you are way up and a bit out, you will have a wonderful time there. Nicely equipped in a stunning part of Bonny Doon.

    Jody And Rick2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Patty was really great and even in the state wide power outages they had a generator to allow us to have heat, light and a hot meal. The shower is fairly small so if you are a very tall or very wide person you may find your elbows bumping the walls. The bed was plenty wide but a bit soft for me. The kitchen was well stocked with good equipment. We found the area very pieceful and the red woods lovely. We stayed with a dog but note that there is no fencing so you might find your dog running after deer, wild turkeys or other critters if you don't keep them on leash. I would love to stay there again!

    Matthew2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Loved our weekend getaway at Patty’s place - nestled up in the woods we felt a true break from the world. Spent mornings sipping coffee on the patio with a private view of a beautiful forest, and evenings enjoying the stars shining through the tall trees. The little town of Felton just 15 minutes away provided a great market, coffee, and great restaurants..and proximity to Redwood hikes couldn’t be beat! Stay here for a truly pleasant get away!

    Bruce2019-10-20T00:00:00Z

  • Great place for people looking for peace and quiet. Patty‘s place is beautifully located, comes with everything one could want/need and is simply serene. One afternoon a deer was taking a nap in the yard... doesn’t get more peaceful than that.

    Anne2019-08-28T00:00:00Z

  • A beautiful peaceful setting just about 30 minutes from santa cruz. My phone had just enough reception to take me there and luckily there's Wi-Fi! The place was well stocked with kitchen essentials including spices and coffee as well as bathroom/shower supplies. While santa cruz gets foggy in the mornings&evenings this bonny doon wonder was so bright and warm. Well insulated, and situated with seating both inside and outside it was a breath of fresh air to be here. I saw two different cats roaming around and they have two distinguished squishy face dogs that were entertaining!

    Alex2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect getaway for a family or large group very conveniently located to the beach and Cliffs-5 min walk. A great bakery and restaurant are also within a 3 min distance from Home. The house is roomy, super clean with lots of sunlight and a deck to enjoy evenings watching the sunset. Host was super nice: we were greeted to a basket full of goodies and wine. Will recommend to friends and family!

    Maria2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • House was perfect! Super clean with great little extras we appreciated (basket with wine, waters and snacks, as well as plenty of toiletries and a well stocked kitchen) Davenport is a Quiet little town but close enough to Santa Cruz to visit and explore. We went up highway 1 and did Half Moon Bay, Mavericks and went in to Ano Nuevo State Park. Gorgeous ocean views all around. Highly recommend this house and the host was very responsive!

  • We really enjoyed our long weekend at Jon’s place. There was plenty of space for our family of 5. The house is spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The location is perfect and Davenport is a very relaxing little town. There is a beautiful beach a short walk away and we enjoyed a really tasty dinner at Davenport Roadhouse and breakfast at Whale City. Many other beautiful areas are a short drive away (we particularly enjoyed Wilder Ranch State Park). Check-in was super easy and Jon was very helpful and responsive throughout. Highly recommended!

  • Immaculately clean and comfortable. Shampoo, soaps, ample towels, nice linen all provided. My kids also appreciated the games cabinet which had a nice selection of options. Make sure to visit shark fin cove - it’s truly beautiful and a little protected from the wind so calmer than surrounding beaches!

  • This home is a lovely spot on the California coast - off the beaten path so there are no crowds or traffic to contend with, yet centrally located to many fantastic places to visit. We loved being able to walk one block to the Whale City Bakery and Roadhouse Inn for meals. We saw amazing tide pools, visited Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, and took the Big Trees train ride - all within a 30 minute drive of this house. The house is newly remodeled with a fully equipped kitchen, towels and linens included, lovely bedrooms - each with a view of the ocean. Jon also provided wonderful touches like a bottle of local wine with home made cookies that made us feel welcome and right at home. A great spot to stay!

    Steps to a world-class surfing/windsurfing, tide pooling and dog friendly beach. Watch ocean sunsets, whales, surfers from this custom-built (2003), lovingly-used, pet-friendly, family home. Home located on the ocean side of Highway One. Warm retreat experience, yet only 10 minutes to Santa Cruz.
    Watch the ocean sunset from the jacuzzi on the upstairs deck. Walk just down the street to a quiet, but well-known beach for surfing, windsurfing, off-leash dog frolicking, tide pooling, beach glass collecting, bonfires, and cliff strolling. The home is surrounded by State Protected open land and has no fencing, which leads to an incredible feeling of expansiveness and privacy. The neighborhood has only 5 other homes on the sand. You have a 360 degree view of green, rolling hills, cows, wildflowers, and ocean. The home was constructed around the view and the natural setting. Look for natural finishes (bamboo, slate, granite, maple, zebra wood, etc.) along with personal touches in the construction (porthole-windowed mahogany front door, custom surfboard-inspired fireplace mantel, compass in laid into the tile, wetsuit hooks in the Master Bathroom, etc.) The visit feels like a remote retreat, but is conveniently located near everything one could want (a small town within a mile; the City of Santa Cruz within a 10 minute drive; and the metropolis of San Francisco only an hour or so away...with all driving being along the spectacular ocean Highway One. A one mile walk to the small town of Davenport brings you to three restaurants/bars with live music, wine tasting, art galleries, gift/crafts shop, Country Store, Post Office and a church.
    House is walking distance (one mile) to the town of Davenport, which has three restaurants, wine tasting room, a neighborhood store, a church, art galleries, and a post office.
