My wife and I rented this property for a month. It is exactly as described: quiet, safe, convenient for commuting into Santa Cruz, and located on the edge of a redwood forest. Basically, the property is a lovely but unpretentious home, well maintained, well equipped, and very clean. The owner was basically available for us to contact by cell phone 24/7 and successfully made every effort to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives. The surrounding area has many attractions, including Henry Cowell Redwoods, Big Basin, and Ano Nuevo State Parks, a multitude of ocean beaches, and all the attractions of Santa Cruz itself.
