Why Cynthia Brown chose Felton

My family was camping in the redwoods and we fell in love with its natural beauty, the activities it has to offer in the immediate/surrounding areas as well its proximity to the rest of the Bay area. We feel very happy to own a piece of this tranquil setting and we invite our guests to come and enjoy it.

What makes this cottage unique

We come to the cottage to relax, enjoy and re-rejuvenate. My favorite thing to do is just to sit and take in the spectacular view and soothing sounds of the creek. If we felt like hitting the beach we drive into Santa Cruz.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely wonderful place! Gorgeous setting right in the woods and the creek behind the house was breathtaking. The house was secluded but still near other houses which is good. Very close to Santa Cruz and other surrounding areas. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. We have had a change in housekeeping personnel. If you had mentioned this during your stay I would have requested them to go back and clean the dust. I have now advised them to pay closer attention to their cleaning routine. Happy to hear you enjoyed your stay.

Very dirty

  • 1 of 5
We were very disappointed with the lack of cleanliness in the cottage. It was dusty, there were cobwebs everywhere, there was dust and hair under the beds, and the kitchen was not maintained. The kitchen sponge left for us to use was old and smelled of mildew. The best part about the cottage was the creek in the backyard, although the path to the creek was not maintained and you had to dodge trees and bushes to get to it. The property is essentially one room (no walls) and every sound could be heard throughout the house. The property could be better if it was properly cleaned and the kitchen was better stocked with newer/cleaner things. I hated using the filthy cookie sheet for cooking, and there was no foil to line it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. We have had a change in housekeeping personnel. If I was made aware of the situation when you had called with a question on how to operate the TV, I would have requested housekeeping to return the same day and address all of the issues. Since your review I have provided them your feedback.

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5
What a unique experience, especially the beautiful view in the redwoods off the deck and through the entire wall of windows with the creek bubbling below. Very private. Cynthia was available and helpful at solving our issue. Kitchen worked and is well stocked with dishes, appliances, utensils, etc. We're planning to visit again. Swimming pool nearby at Trout Farm Inn for $7.

Satisfied and MORE!

  • 5 of 5
At the low price this rental came I was not expecting much but my entire family fell in love with this little cottage. You have to see it in person to appreciate fully. The floor to ceiling windows looking out back are just beautiful. The drive to the Boardwalk was a quick 20 minutes. Can't wait to return next year.

A little slice of heaven

  • 4 of 5
We have stayed at this cottage twice and love it. Living in San Jose makes this an easy choice for getting away from it all, without spending hours in traffic to get there. As soon as you walk in, you feel relaxed and happy. It has a Zen-like feel without being corny. The amenities are nice, everything you really need for a weekend stay. It's nicely located within Felton so you can easily go from town to town. Really enjoyed the stay.

Cottage on the creek

  • 4 of 5
Very lovely area, quiet, relaxing. I would recommend homeowner replace futons , they were stained and very uncomfortable, also maybe add some bright colors as accents in the home. Everything was brown. I would go back.
