Los Gatos House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

This 3500 sqft ranch style home is on a quiet mountainside with an unobstructed view of Monterey Bay. The open floor plan, family oriented house is a great get away from city stresses. Absolute peace and quiet surrounded by the beauty of redwood trees, nature, clean air and clear mountain spring water from the tap. It's the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate. There is plenty of room for the whole family to spread out and a game room with something for almost everyone. The master bedroom has a cal king bed and a queen bed. Two of the other bedrooms have a queen bed each. The computer room has a twin XL bed and a roll away twin available. In the game room there is a full size hide-a-bed couch. The kitchen has a Jenn Air cook top, double electric ovens and two refrigerators to accommodate a crowd. The dining room table seats ten (twelve if you squeeze) and there is counter seating and an outdoor dining area too. The tranquility of the setting by day and the stars by night will take your breath away. Viewing wildlife from the deck is always a treat. The Santa Cruz Mountains have many wineries that offer tasting rooms, some are very close by and Capitola offers store fronts that are cooperative tasting rooms

About Rita

My husband and I have raised our family at this home. Now our children bring our grandchildren to visit occasionally. We enjoy rural life. Over the years we have had horses, goats, chickens, rabbits, cockatiels, rats, hamsters, and of course cats and dogs; usually as part of 4H projects. Now that we are older, we enjoy our dog and cats as companions and the wildlife that visit us here are friends.

What makes this house unique

When you are here, you could be 1000 miles from everything else. This location is so ideal; it offers a manageable 25 minute commute to either Silicone Valley or Santa Cruz. The quiet, tranquil privacy of the Redwood Forest is wonderfully relaxing. The view is spectacular and the fresh air and mountain spring water are the best!!

Wonderful host, amazing property

  • 5 of 5
I rented the Get Out Of Dodge Retreat for my 30th birthday. Rita was a fabulous, thorough and accommodating host. The ranch-style house is huge and open with a charming 50's-60's vibe (old school juke box with appropriate tunes to boot). Two hot tubs and a wonderfully sunny pool made for delightful outdoor afternoons. A plethora of games inside made for no shortage of nighttime activities. It's just up the road from Santa Cruz and highway 1, providing plenty of options for afternoons away from the house. Oh, and the kitchen is fully set up, including an outdoor grill. We cooked all our meals throughout the weekend. She even has fresh herbs growing on the deck!

All in all a perfect weekend that more than lived up to expectation. I would highly recommend the property.

Incredible!

  • 5 of 5
A group of our friends all stayed here for 2 nights for a going away party, and it couldn't have been more perfect. The house is absolutely incredible and the setting is indescribably beautiful. Easily the best vacation rental we've ever stayed in, and the owner is a total sweetheart to boot.

Amazing getaway from San Francisco

  • 5 of 5
We took a bigger group of 12 men and had an incredibly relaxing and renewing weekend. We were able to fit everyone comfortably for sleeping (including a few of our own air mattresses). We were able to all sit around the fire and chat, barbecue on the deck, enjoy the hot tub, and play as much shuffleboard, darts, pool, and horseshoes as we could handle. There a great deal of amazing hikes that are only a 15 minute drive away and were perfect day activities on Saturday morning. All in all, it was only ~75 minute drive from San Francisco and was the perfect place to get away for the weekend. We'll definitely plan to come back.

Our 2nd stay. Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We have rented this home on two separate occasions and would highly recommend it. The living areas are large and easily accommodated our group of 9 adults, whether we were all cooking and eating in the kitchen/dining area or playing pool, shuffleboard and darts in the game room. The large deck with jacuzzi is a wonderful place to watch the sunset and the sunrise. The property is clean and well maintained and the owners are very nice and helpful. We would recommend it to our family and friends and will definitely go back again for another stay.

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5
Dear Rita & Family,

Thank you for sharing your absolutely beautiful Home. It was 6 of the most wonderful days my family ever spent together. Your home was the perfect setting for us all to gather together for Thanksgiving and to be with our Dad.

The location of your home and the property grounds were so beautiful and the view was Magnificent! Watching all the Deer roam freely and without any fear was so peaceful and serene. We were truly in God's Country!

All the kids were constantly occupied. Shuffleboard, Billiards, Darts, Hot Tub, playing cards, Golfing, Horseshoes and dancing to the great juke box music. So much fun!!! And they never even made it to the Ping Pong Table or the Swimming Pool. Even the weather was perfect the entire stay!

My mom loved your kitchen! She baked Christmas pastries, cakes and cookies during our entire stay! And she prepared all our meals as well! Not much of a vacation for mom. But she loves taking care of her family! Our evening family sing alongs of Praise & Worship to God were the most precious moments for us.

This was a Wonderful Blessing to our Family! Very fond memories that we will never forget! Thank you for letting us have this special time with our Dad!

May God Bless You and your Family
and a Very Merry Christmas to you All,

Yours Truly,
Karen Rosal

Beautiful home in the hills

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful weekend here. The owner was very helpful and accommodating and the house is just fantastic. Definitely the best rental that we've found yet!

The house is very large - open with plenty of space and comfortable areas to curl up and read a book or snooze. The game room was a big hit, along with the jukebox. The kids really enjoyed the driving range at the bottom of the property and the pool. At night we sat in the hot tub (there are two!) and gazed at the stars. Truly a great weekend spent at a fantastic home.
