Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Felton:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
