Your room has a comfy queen bed, private deck with canyon and forest views. The second room, separated by a hallway and bathroom, has two twin beds - you may select whichever room you prefer. The bathroom has a single sink, water closet and shower. There's a separate, private entrance so you can come and go as you please without worrying about disturbing us. The 900 + sq. ft. guest suite is located downstairs from the main house, you'll have a quiet and private area all to yourselves with a media room, library and outdoor fireplace, or come on up to join us and share our hospitality.
The house is built to maximize the views and blend in with the woodland surroundings. The 5-acre property has majestic redwood cathedrals and a peek of the ocean, sunsets are spectacular! Your closest neighbors will be quail, wild turkeys, cottontail rabbits, raccoons, owls, deer, coyote and our buddy 'Bob' , the faithful bobcat who performs gopher patrol. If you are looking for scenic beauty and a pleasant ambiance, the stillness of the Bonny Doon night will calm your soul.
We enjoy hosting visitors from all over the world. It gives us great joy to share the glorious Central Coast, there are so many fun, interesting things to do...beach combing, biking, hiking, windsurfing, antiquing, golfing, wine tasting; plus so many places to visit, the amazing UCSC campus is 15 minutes away, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, the charming seaside town of Capitola, numerous State Parks (inc. Big Basin and Henry Cowell), Roaring Camp railroad in Felton, the quaint north coast beach villages of Davenport, Pescadero and San Gregorio. San Francisco to the north, Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur to the south are excellent day trips. And if you want to play golf, Dick knows all the courses. Our friends joke that in our next lives we will come back as tour guides.
My husband and I can put together a family style dinner, pour a glass of local wine, prepare a modest breakfast, pack a lunch to go, whatever works for you. You can BBQ if you want. We travel a lot and we know how important it is to feel comfortable and to be happy in new surroundings. We look forward to meeting you.
