Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Tranquility Base is a cozy cottage at the end of a quiet country road bordered by Lompico Creek, nestled deep in the heart of a redwood rain forest.

This little gem is a haven for writers and anyone seeking a rejuvenation of the spirit. The fresh air is the elixir. The giant trees give shade and solace. The ferns and the creek frame the picture. Hiking/biking trails abound in this canyon inside of a canyon. Your mountain hideaway is just a jaunt away from the the bustling Bay Area. This haven is a 25 minute drive from the city of Santa Cruz. NOT a beach front venue.

Tranquility Base is located 15 minutes from downtown Felton and the community of Mount Hermon. Santa Cruz is 25 minutes. You will be 25-30 minutes from the closest beaches/Boardwalk. (Dependant on time of day/day of week)

Roaring Camp Railroad is a 15 minute drive from the cabin.

The beautiful Loch Lomond Rec Area is a 10 minute drive from the cabin. (Open Mid-March - September)

Tranquility Base is a 625 sq ft cabin with high ceilings in all but the bathroom. Each of the two bedrooms has a queen bed, cable TV. The front bedroom is larger and has a skylight.

The back bedroom is more den-like and has a back door that opens out into the hot tub yard. In the closets there are 2 folding futons, a roll-away bed,

and a travel play pen/porta crib

The hot tub is big soak tub only. No jets or bubbles.

No laundry facility onsite.

There are 31 steps up from the parking area to the cabin, but no stairs inside.

There is a large front deck at cabin level with a fire fixture, tables, chairs, umbrellas, fountain. Located in a quiet neighborhood near the end of the

road. The houses are rather far apart. The cabin is up off of the road which gives you a tree house view and total privacy.

Based on feedback this is not recommended for free-range crawlers and toddlers.

This is not a 'party house', as the neighborhood quiet time is 10pm to 8am. Caretaker lives nearby. If you have any questions during your stay, please feel free to call.

There is no cell phone coverage at the cabin. There is free WI-FI and phone.

No 3rd party transactions.

Check-In time is 3:00pm. Check-Out time is 11:00am

Amazing retreat with so many amenities

  • 5 of 5

Janea was very communicative before we arrived and everything was amazing. There were so many extra things provided that we never would have expected, like personal care products, avocado oil, agave nectar for coffee, fresh coffee beans and coffee grinder... The home is in the forest and you can hear branches falling off trees and the hum of wildlife and the creek. It is so peaceful and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the outdoor fire pit and hot tub. The TV has an HDMI port if you want to bring your computer and connect. There is also lots of things for kids like stuffed animals and games. I would definitely stay here again, perhaps with another couple to make use of the extra bedroom and outdoor grill.

Just what I had hoped it would be!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to get away from the loud east bay for 4th of July and Tranquility Base was only an hour away from home and perfect! The only sounds to be heard were running water from the creek and birds chirping. The cabin is beautiful, nestled among the redwoods and very cozy. Janea has really done a wonderful job with the details to make it both whimsical and comfortable. We will definitely be back!

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to go that is very private and romantic this is the place. We spent 3 days 2 nights here and never saw another person. The property is almost to the end of the road so very few cars even drove by. The property is full of charm and is definitely eclectic! No matter where you are there is something to look at. The redwoods are awesome! Even though there is no cellular phone service, the property has a phone, cable, and wifi. We took food with us and had planned on going out for dinner one night. But we loved the place so much we stayed, sipped wine and soaked in the hot tub! We are already planning our next trip!

SUPER DUPER CABIN

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect at this cabin, you will have a perfect day / night over there, I took only 1 day and night and wished I could stay more but I was in a rush, this is preferable for 2 nights, you will enjoy every corner of the cabin, it is secluded with a creek crossing the road and with a beautiful rain forest surrounding the cabin, just amazing, 5/5 stars, excellent 120% recommended!.

Perfect private getaway to relax with your friends and loved ones. Refreshingly unique!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at numerous vacation rental locations - not only is this the most thoughtfully planned, decorated, and prepared home I have stayed in, the host, Janea, was the most helpful of any host I have encountered.

The weather was very hectic before and during our stay, and Janea did all she could to assist us and make sure our travels were safe. Any time I reached out to her, she got back to me right away with useful information.

Do yourself a favor and book yourself a stay at this one-of-a-kind, peaceful retreat.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Tranquility Base was everything I was hoping for! Living in SF I wanted "a cabin in the woods with a hot tub" and was super surprised to actually find one! This property is nestled in between beautiful, tall redwoods and was super cozy and warm. It was very clean and Janea, the host, made it very welcoming for us. She was absolutely great and worked with us to reschedule due to a month of crazy storms in the area. She made sure to keep us updated on rain and road conditions and I couldn't have appreciated that more. If you are looking for a quick get away from the city, please do yourself a favor and spend a night here!
