We are both retirement age, but not retired. Jim keeps this house and property humming. There is always something to do. Judy is a financial coach and works from home, also.

Judy M purchased this apartment in 2001

Because it's in a beautiful, convenient neighborhood and it's very close to our daughter and her family. We could see from the first how this house would lend itself to a conversion to a studio apartment and a separate living area for us.

We love the trees! Coming here from So Cal, we hadn't ever lived in such a verdant setting. The animals; deer, raccoon, squirrels, coyotes, bob cats, all living around us is were exceptional in Ventura. Here we see them all the time. It's a different perspective on life.

Vacation with our baby

  • 5 of 5
We were welcomed hospitably and found a pleasant space to retreat to while venturing into Big Basin park and down to Santa Cruz with our three month old. The owners were gracious about a fussy baby too! Its a loft-style room with a small kitchen, and was perfect for us as we were eating most of our meals with family staying in the park.

Redwood Retreat

  • 5 of 5
I stayed for 2 nights in May in the very comfortable and well equipped 2nd floor apartment above the owners. Everything was available, from coffee and coffee pots, to napkins and zip loc bags for snacks to take on day trips. The bed, as well as the living area was very comfortable and everything was spotless. This place is really in the woods, but located in a neighborhood, so you do have neighbors, but plenty of privacy. Cooking is limited to a one burner hot plate in the kitchenette and a microwave oven, but cooking was not in my plans anyway. The owners are very friendly and helpful with recommendations for sightseeing and eating places. Boulder Creek is a quaint little town with 2 grocery stores nearby. It is truly a beautiful area to stay for a while.

A friend and I, along with our dogs, were attending an event in this area and were looking for someplace to stay that was close to our destination and would accept pets. I stumbled across this property and booked it with some trepidation simply because this was a new experience for me. We felt like we had won the lottery after we got here! Our host, Judy, could not possibly have been more gracious and accommodating. She not only answered all of our questions but she offered to bring us breakfast makings from her own kitchen since we would be leaving early the next morning. The property was spotless with every consideration for our comfort, even to having a comfy dog bed for my dog. The beds were comfortable, the shower had good pressure and plenty of hot water; everything was designed with the traveler in mind. I will definitely stay here again whenever we are in the area.

Owner's Response: We so love having wonderful people like Elizabeth & Friends (both human and canine) stay with us. Her big ol' Rhodesian Ridgeback was a sweetheart and he really appreciated the size of our lot to wander in. Mia, the little dog on the adventure did really well too. It's quiet and dark at night here, the perfect place to sleep wonderfully. We look forward to having them back to visit soon!

Beautiful getaway in the woods!

Judy and Jim were warm and welcoming hosts. Gorgeous foliage, lovely deck, quiet and removed. Boulder Creek has a little gem here up beyond the river. Super comfortable bed, roomy space and you really feel out in nature. We will be back!

We are located in the Santa Cruz Mountains, 25 minutes from the city of Santa Cruz, on the northern edge of the Monterey Bay. We are 1 hour north of the world famous Monterey Bay Acquarium, the city of Monterey and the Carmel and Big Sur areas. We have lots of ocean based acitvity - whale watching, touring, scuba adventures, sailing, surfing, etc. Santa Cruz was just listed by National Geographic as one of the 20 top cities in the world for surfing!

UC Santa Cruz is located here and we have numerous research and conservation projects in the area. The Seymour Marine Center and Long Marine Lab are in Santa Cruz and open for public visits. Docents lead tours daily.

Santa Cruz is also the home of Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Roller coasters, rides and games. People travel here from all over the world to play there.

Famed Mavericks surf break is about and hour and 15 minutes up the coast from us near the town of Pescadero. Hwy 1 leads north through amazing ocean scenery to San Francisco, or you can travel along the spine of the peninsula to the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge in an hour and a quarter.

Closer to Boulder Creek there is Roaring Camp - a center for historic mountain trains, tours through the redwoods and trains into Santa Cruz that leave you at the Beach Boardwalk and then return you to Felton and Roaring Camp. Kids love this, and so do the adults!

There is also a zip line adventure through the treetops at Mt. Hermon in Felton. Zip platform to platform 150 feet above the ground. One experiences the completely unseen (from the ground) ecosystem of the treetops. This is a thrilling and educational trip.

We are surrounded by numerous mountain state parks, and even more state beaches and beach parks. It's easy to escape to either venue from Treetop Haven and then return to hot showers, soft beds, and nearby restaurants to feed both your body and soul.
