Bonny Doon Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Chateau / Country House, 3 Bedrooms + Library, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

TREETOPS. This idyllic country retreat will literally transport you to new heights. Unparalled woodland setting with canyon vistas and a peek of the ocean. Located in Bonny, midway between Carmel and San Francisco, 5 minutes from California's Scenic Highway 1 and secluded ocean beaches. Surrounded by State Park lands with incredible trees, waterfalls and miles of scenic trails to explore.

Beautiful 3000 sq ft home, 3 BDRM/2.5 bath with 2000 sq ft deck, spa, on 3-acre site, outside fireplace/entertaining area. Unobstructed canyon, meadow and ocean views. Reverse floor plan, literally puts you level with the giant redwoods. Huge kitchen, family area. Lots of sunshine (above the summer fog), surrounded by amazing redwood cathedrals with a gated, cobblestone-style drive. Nice, quiet neighborhood. Leave the windows open at night to enjoy the romantic sounds!

The main floor of the house features a large, cheerful kitchen/family area, a delightful living/dining area that opens to a tranquil veranda, and a master suite that features a 'star-gazing window' and a private deck w/ spa. All rooms have uncompromised views. Leave the windows open at night to enjoy the romantic sounds!

The downstairs area has two guest rooms with a shared bath, an extensive library, a media room, an outdoor fireplace/entertaining area with a built-in barbecue and access to your own amazing Redwood Cathedrals (fairy rings).

The rustic, 3-acre gated property is surrounded by giant trees and meadows and is within walking distance of a small boutique winery. This home works well for two or 3 couples and will comfortably sleep 6 (2 queen beds, 3dr bdrm has 2 twins).

The community of Bonny Doon is known for its scenery, mild climate, vineyards, lack of traffic and proximity to pristine beaches, surfing, golf, equestrian facilities, bicycling, birding, the Santa Cruz Wharf and Boardwalk, Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary, UC Santa Cruz campus, fantastic restaurants, eclectic shops and unique music venues. We are less than 20 minutes from Santa Cruz and UCSC. It is quite literally a vacation paradise.

About us: We are a -young- ;o) retired couple who enjoy adventure and travel ...always on the go. Our children and grandchildren live all over the world. My husband is a former small business owner (commercial printing company) and is the inventor of a successful golf product. I worked many years as a law librarian and continue to do specialized investigative research for select clients. Bonny Doon is our home 6 months of the year.

Pat Pfremmer purchased this chateau / country house in 1980

We love it here, and our family and friends like to come and just sit and stare, there is always something to see.

We searched the Western States for 'the perfect place' and believe we found it. We like being near towns and activities, but we also want to be away from traffic and crowds. We also like the proximity to San Francisco/San Jose Bay Area and cultural events.

Bonny Doon is a very loosely organized rural community, an ephemeral oasis, much like the classic musical/movie, 'Brigadoon' it is more a state of mind than a place.

Tranquil, serene beauty, incredible views, a Feng shui place for the body and mind. Lots of wildlife, the morning calls of the Valley Quail, the hooting of the owls at night, the occasional cry of coyotes, cottontail rabbits, deer, fox, bobcat, ...The most beautiful trees, three incredible redwood 'cathedrals' sometimes called 'fairy rings'. We are surrounded by State Parks and State Beaches yet we are not 'isolated' in the sense of conveniences. There is a good restaurant just down on the coast, 5 minutes away.

Beautiful home nestled in the trees

My husband and I came here for four nights as a quiet new year's retreat. The home is spacious with several living areas, all with outside decks. The views are beautiful, and kudos to whomever cleaned the windows because they were spotless - a hard thing to do when the sun is low in the sky! We hiked at two of the nearby state parks and enjoyed walking the beaches, too. There was no moon while we were there so the clear nights gave an amazing display of stars. A wonderful area as you can be among the redwoods and 15 minutes later be on the beach. Santa Cruz is about 20 minutes away. The owners are exceptionally accommodating as well! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

We had such amazing time at this place. The house was incredible with great amenities and fantastic views. The community of Bonny Doon is also great. We enjoyed taking walks and going to the winery. The drive to Highway 1 is quick and leads to the nice town of Davenport where we had a lovely lunch and beach walk. Santa Cruz and Capitola are also just a short drive away and make for a great trip. We will definitely be back. Thanks!

The house absolutely met my needs, and the needs of my family. It was well-furnished, quiet, and a great place to relax amid the great stands of redwoods. Its close proximity to Santa Cruz made it valuable for obtaining food (to cook) and a wide variety of restaurants.

Beautiful, relaxing rental perfect for groups or large family

This is the perfect vacation home for three or four couples -- and friends -- to relax, enjoy the beach and redwoods or visit wineries. Pat and Dick's home offers ample space to socialize or to read or work without bothering other guests. The kitchen is well-equipped and spacious. We would definitely consider renting it again.

If you are looking to stay in a beautiful home in Santa Cruz look no further. This gorgeous house, nestled among the redwoods, offers a peaceful setting in a beautiful, welcoming home. The owners' let you know that they have graciously allowed to you to treat their home as your own. The views are special - and so are the deer, rabbit and quail that keep you entertained as you soak in the beauty and peacefulness that abounds. Bring the whole family and friends and you will want to come back for more!

Ideally located on the Central Calif Coast, mid-way between San Francisco to the north, the Monterey Peninsula and Big Sur to the south. The area is considered to be a vacation paradise, with year-round moderate temperatures. Redwood forests, deserted beaches, unique little get-aways ..it is all here.
