Pictures don't do it justice...Close to beach, hiking, wineries, amusement park and historical sites. 2 bedrooms, 1 bath. Gas bar b q built in as part of the outdoor kitchen, octagon redwood deck just above the apple orchard. Very private retreat spot that is close to town and entertainment. Our home is designed to provide a calm, restorative environment...away from the fast-pace and high stress of the modern world.
We live in the main house and welcome guests to stay in our cottage. My dad left the house to us when he passed and we have poured our hearts into this place. We recently transitioned from the Sacramento area to full time residence in the Santa Cruz mountains. We have tried to make it a place of peace, serenity and love. Our sincere hope is that people will come and feel the same way we do.
Joe Giusti purchased this cottage in 2007
This is an amazing place....the house sits on 50 acres of forest in the Scotts Valley area. You can step out the door into the orchard or hike to the top of the mountain. It's quiet and private with all the amenities of home yet close to town and family-friendly entertainment. It's the perfect place to get away and de-stress.
Close to town and boutique wineries, 10 minutes to the beach boardwalk. Winters are cozy by the fire, great for snuggling or watching dvd's. Summer sun streams through the skylights making the house bright and airy.
We really enjoyed our stay at the house. The wooded surrounding was exactly what we wanted. The house is very unique and cozy. Joe is a super host, he made sure that we had everything we needed during our stay. Thank you!
I spent a great relaxing time there with my family. It was very quite and peaceful and conveniently located to go to the nearby restaurants, coffee shops, groceries in 5-10 minutes by car. I strongly recommend this place to the people who would like to spend some relaxing times with their family members. The owner of property was also very nice and kind.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the "Quiet Mountain Retreat". My hosts, Joe and Frannie, were very respectful of my privacy yet readily available if I needed assistance in any way. The setting is beautiful- very quiet and peaceful. Anything one needs is available in Scotts Valley and/or Felton, but Santa Cruz is just 15 minutes away. I had a great time during my stay in the redwoods and highly recommend the Quiet Mountain Retreat! ENJOY!
Yes, these pictures do not do this vacation home justice. Yes, it is a quirky, round house. Yes, it is quiet and serene... And yet it is far more than that... Nestled in a private redwood forest the air is clean, the noise is nonexistent. No barking dogs, no loud neighbors, just the wind in the trees. A wonderful place to indulge in a walk back in time. Escape into the Santa Cruz mountains - a dream come true!
Great location for enjoying the big trees in a private, quiet location. Yet close enough to town to make it very convenient and easy to get to the store. Excellent hiking and mountain biking in the immediate area. House was clean and well stocked with everything you would need - even cable TV and wireless internet access. Owners are helpful and accommodating.
Oh my goodness this place is a piece of heaven on earth...great memories made here!!! I can't express enough the appreciation we have for being able to experience everything this house and it's location has to offer. The house is secluded but yet everything we needed was right down the road. The people of Scotts Valley were welcoming & helpful. The owner went the extra mile for us by installing wireless internet before our stay to accommodate my son's working vacation. Both the owner and the property manager were a pleasure to work with and always available. It is centrally located between Silicon Valley and the Santa Cruz area. I would definitly recommend this rental to friends & family. We couldn't have asked for anything more!!!
