About Cynthia Brown

I am a retired professional from the high tech industry of Silicon Valley. My husband is a retired accountant. Motivated by our desire to share with others the natural beauty of the redwoods and creekside setting of our weekend getaway home in the Santa Cruz mountains of California, we started renting it out in early 2011 to vacationers. Since then, we discovered our true passion in creating aesthetically pleasing, practical and comfortable "home away from home" living spaces for others to enjoy. During our annual visits to my in-laws in southwest Florida, we fell in love with the vibrancy of the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area and the beautiful beaches. Subsequently, we established other rental homes in Hollywood.

Cynthia Brown purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Cynthia Brown chose Santa Cruz County

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

What a perfect place to stay! We loved the patio and the creek in the back, and spent most of our time Redding outside. Everything was clean and well taken care of. Very private and quiet area.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Kids loved the creek behind the house and we were close enough to Santa Cruz to enjoy the beaches and the boardwalk.

Heaven for desert dwellers!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed 2 nights in the Cottage on the Creek. Coming from Southern California Mojave desert, the scenery was breathtaking! Giant Redwoods right outside the door and right next to a very large one was a little one. What a great contrast. The trek down to the creek was a bit too treacherous looking for us to venture down. The cottage itself was not fancy but rustic is the charm. A few things need sprucing and the dryer did not work, but we would stay again and again right there and be totally happy. Our first adventure in an a Frame cottage in the Redwoods did not disappoint. It was amazing. Loved it!

Dream come true!

  • 5 of 5

I have always dreamed of the day I could stay in a place like Cythnia and Quentin's. This cabin in the Santa Cruz Mountains was the perfect getaway from my city digs. Check in was a breeze and I was so happy to hear from my hosts upon arriving. The beds and futon were just the right size and very comfortable for me and my group of 6. Not to mention waking up to an INCREDIBLE view kept us stunned!! It rained quite a bit and was very chilly during our stay, but the heat and fireplace worked perfectly to help keep us warm. It also is located not far from town, with ample stores and restaurants to keep us full. It was also a super short distance from beautiful parks lined with redwoods and the magnificent Santa Cruz. I can't wait to recommend this place to friends and hope to return soon.

Beautiful tall windows, woodsy view

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous setting in the woods, beautiful large windows downstairs overlooks the woods and a creek. It reminds me of the 1970's in a nice way. Yes, it's dated, not flashy, not fancy, and it's what we expected from the description. We arrived at a cold time of year and we were not interested in tending the wood stove, so we relied on the regular heater and we brought along our own down comforter, expecting it to be cold. It was cold! Next time, long underwear and two down comforters! Again, we expected it to be cold, and we would happily stay here again. It is not for someone wanting an updated, fancy lodge or spa-type lodgings. Quiet, peaceful, lovely location. We brought our food as we did not want to drive to town. We wanted to be there and enjoy, and we did.

Owner's Response: Did you not use the propane furnace as that should have kept it reasonably warm inside? Regards, Quentin
