getaway from it all!

  • 4 of 5

This little piece of heaven was exactly what I needed to getaway from it all. It was peaceful and serene. Grateful to the hosts for being so kind. Probably the only few downsides, was the road was a real rough ride and a few extra pillows for the bed would've been great. Otherwise this was a wonderful trip!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do it justice, super cute place. You feel lost in the redwoods, but it is only a few minutes from the beach. Will definitely be going back.

it was a nice getaway from the city

  • 5 of 5

it was nice. it was a lot smaller than expected, that wasn't a problem for me, more so for my boyfriend who is over 6 feet tall and had to bend down in certain areas. other than that it was nice. they came out to greet us with was professional. they had all the supplies you could think of. i brought coffee. and toiletries because i thought i would need it, but they had everything. it was well stocked. it was a nice private space and the wifi was a plus.

Very nice and quiet retreat in the redwoods.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent two nights surrounded by redwoods at this location. The owners were very welcoming, friendly and the rental was very clean and comfortable for two people. It was a nice quiet stay away from the traffic of Santa Cruz which is just 4 miles away. Its close to several Redwood State Parks and the ocean as well. I'd recommend to check out the tree houses also available for rentals on the property. We would stay again.

Quiet forest setting

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Quiet secluded cabin nestled in redwoods yet only 10 min from Santa Cruz. Cabin was small though comfortable. Owners were great and were nice enough to mail earrings which were left behind.
