Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property for my boyfriend's birthday and it was better than expected. The hot tub was relaxing, there was a little fire pit on the patio. You can hear the sounds of the creek which is wonderful to wake up to. The kitchen had all of the pots and pans and everything we needed to make dinner. The bed was comfortable. Everything was perfect.

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed staying at Tranquility Base over Easter weekend. Being up among the impressive Redwoods (love that deck!), hearing the sound of the creek and the birds was a tonic for the soul. The beds were comfy, living room cozy, and the kitchen was spot-on with everything we needed. Thank you!

Rustic retreat! Fun atmosphere. Beautiful Setting. Sound of water running a creek!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect night for our family visit to Santa Cruz. I only wish we had a a couple of days or more to spend there.

I love rustic locations, quiet, sounds of birds, nature, streams. I like roads that are hidden among the trees, and no traffic.

This was a stop for a family of 4, and although a little tight for a husband / wife, and 18 year old twins, it was a nice way to spend an evening. Plus our twins were off their phones with limited cell service. :-)

The house is decorated in a fun atmosphere of rustic Hawaiian mountain home. A nice sign greeted us in the yard.

The hosts made if very easy to find. You must park on the side of the road next to the house, and then a set of wooden stairs take you to the house. An adventure, but a nice one.

We arrived late, around 9:30 pm, and so was dark, but we could find our way in. It was easy to access.

Once inside we used the two bedrooms plus the roll-away/couch for 1 of our twins.

The hot tub is a nice touch. No bubbles or jets, and water not extra hot. Kitchen is small but adequate, although we ate in Santa Cruz, and left before breakfast, so didn't use the kitchen to its full extent.

A nice stay. You must love rustic to enjoy this house. But if you do, you will love this location.

Best girls trip ever!! Peaceful, charming, relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful getaway. The cabin was very clean and beautifully decorated. There are cute treasures hidden on the property that were really fun to find. We spent the mornings on the deck and even took a little hike at sunrise, which is breath-taking. The directions to get to the place were very helpful and accurate. Must be careful of the confident, fast drivers when it comes to the single lane sections of the road though. We enjoyed downtown Santa Cruz, Sea Bright Beach, and the Big Basin hike and the cabin was in a reasonable distance from everything. It was nice to be cut off from the world yet still experience the local areas. The wifi had a weak signal, just enough to do some basic things. I particularly loved that it was weak because it forced you to put away technology and take in the scenery while bonding with each other. We did not come into any major insect issues since they mostly stay outside as long as you follow her instructions. The banana slugs were a joy to find, they love the little lotus fountain in the garden area. In addition, there were fun, brain teaser puzzles to play with while we were chilling at the cabin and even toys if someone brought kids. The stream across the way is beautiful and it's sound were meditative. Overall, it was a great stay and would love to come back. Best girls trip yet!

Easy transaction

Janea was very nice to deal with. The property is just as others have described - kind of funky cabin but very comfortable. We didn't use the hot tub or the outdoor seating, but all looked inviting. Would recommend to others for a relaxing getaway!
