The cottage is wonderfully new-feeling and clean, beautifully appointed, spacious and sits on a hill overlooking a fabulous forest view with a long, deep drink of sky, coastal mountains and trees. Nick and Valerie have thought of everything a visitor might need to be comfy. The drive to the ocean and/or downtown Santa Cruz winds for about ten minutes through a delicious redwood forest and adorable farm holdings before hitting Santa Cruz proper, coming out very near a Whole Foods and lots of eateries. It's about another five minutes from there to the beaches. We had a family gathering and hosted lunch there for the whole gang, with plenty of room for all, both inside and outside on the spacious deck. Val and Nick, themselves world travelers, are delightfully gracious hosts, responsive without being the least intrusive.
Quiet Country Cottage. Nature. Close to town.
