We are located in the Santa Cruz Mountains, 25 minutes from the city of Santa Cruz, on the northern edge of the Monterey Bay. We are 1 hour north of the world famous Monterey Bay Acquarium, the city of Monterey and the Carmel and Big Sur areas. We have lots of ocean based acitvity - whale watching, touring, scuba adventures, sailing, surfing, etc. Santa Cruz was just listed by National Geographic as one of the 20 top cities in the world for surfing!
UC Santa Cruz is located here and we have numerous research and conservation projects in the area. The Seymour Marine Center and Long Marine Lab are in Santa Cruz and open for public visits. Docents lead tours daily.
Santa Cruz is also the home of Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Roller coasters, rides and games. People travel here from all over the world to play there.
Famed Mavericks surf break is about and hour and 15 minutes up the coast from us near the town of Pescadero. Hwy 1 leads north through amazing ocean scenery to San Francisco, or you can travel along the spine of the peninsula to the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge in an hour and a quarter.
Closer to Boulder Creek there is Roaring Camp - a center for historic mountain trains, tours through the redwoods and trains into Santa Cruz that leave you at the Beach Boardwalk and then return you to Felton and Roaring Camp. Kids love this, and so do the adults!
There is also a zip line adventure through the treetops at Mt. Hermon in Felton. Zip platform to platform 150 feet above the ground. One experiences the completely unseen (from the ground) ecosystem of the treetops. This is a thrilling and educational trip.
We are surrounded by numerous mountain state parks, and even more state beaches and beach parks. It's easy to escape to either venue from Treetop Haven and then return to hot showers, soft beds, and nearby restaurants to feed both your body and soul.
Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: We are both retirement age, but not retired. Jim keeps this house and property humming. There is always something to do. Judy is a financial coach and works from home, also.
Why the Owner Chose Boulder Creek: Because it's in a beautiful, convenient neighborhood and it's very close to our daughter and her family. We could see from the first how this house would lend itself to a conversion to a studio apartment and a separate living area for us.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: We love the trees! Coming here from So Cal, we hadn't ever lived in such a verdant setting. The animals; deer, raccoon, squirrels, coyotes, bob cats, all living around us is were exceptional in Ventura. Here we see them all the time. It's a different perspective on life.
