  • Elegant home in scenic surroundings

    "This house completely meets the description provided: spacious, well-furnished, stocked with amenities, comfortable, great views, and conveniently located. We were very pleased with our stay and would like to return again for another special occasion. Our 3 1/2 year old granddaughter was so excited by the bunk beds and assortment of toys that she squealed with joy while hopping up and down upon our arrival."

  • Lovely Experience

    "This is a beautifully detailed second floor studio cottage. It is architecturally beautiful and beautifully furnished. Also very comfortable. The front window looks out at the ocean (a short 1 block walk) and the side windows overlook the marina. The neighborhood is charming and great for walking. There are excellent restaurants within an easy walk or short drive. The owner lives on the property and is very responsive and helpful. What more could anyone want?!"

  • A Great Alternative to the Beach

    "It all starts with the location. As active seniors we have always loved the mountains and countryside better than an oceanside experience. By choosing this wonderful home in a new area to us, we could have both. The various beachside communities were a short drive away for exploring when we wanted; but we could return to the peaceful beauty of our retreat. The neighborhood is off the beaten path and quite private and quiet. The neighbors we met were very friendly including the sweet resident dog across the street. Ben Lomond proper (a mile or less away) has a great gourmet grocery, and traditional grocers are nearby in Felton and Scotts Valley. We loved hiking in Henry Cowell Redwood State Park on several occasions; and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the mountain area and backroads over Pinot Paradise weekend visiting several interesting wineries and tasting yummy pinots. Quail Hollow was off limits for us hiking-wise, as dogs are not permitted (equestrian/pedestrian); but it is basically within walking distance from the home and appeared to have some great ridge trails. Now for the home itself. What a perfect place. As others have stated, it has everything you could desire inside and out. It is bright and airy, quality comfortable furnishings and bed, a super gas fireplace in the living area, a gorgeous kitchen with anything we could ever desire (including a Keurig), another gas fireplace in master (which came in handy in early morning hours), wifi, flat-screen tv, even flameless candles. Beautiful grounds. Over the five days we spent time in each outside space. The deck off the living room was just right for morning breakfast. Enjoyed feeding the birds from tray on ledge. The large deck off the master complete with comfy sofa was our go-to spot for most late afternoon cocktails. We spent a wonderful evening sitting by the firepit below in the meadow, and a serene afternoon interlude by the Buddha and fountain. We are so grateful that our dog, Sadie, could share this experience also. She loved playing chuckit in the meadow and resting on the deck afterward, always hoping for squirrel sightings. We took advantage of the vegetable garden savoring a lovely salad with fresh lettuce and herbs. This home is among the best we have ever rented. The owner Lolly was very helpful and friendly, providing many useful ideas for our daily outings. We would highly recommend this home and will definitely be returning - hopefully soon!"

  • Wonderful Winter Getaway!

    "We had the opportunity to sneak away from the midwest winter for 6 weeks in Jan and Feb. We were very fortunate to find this condo as it was perfect for our needs. It was equipped with anything we wanted or needed for our stay. Perfect location, steps away from the beach, heated swimming pool and a workout room, (which was updated while we were there). The small balcony provided a quiet spot to enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine and listen to the crashing surf. We were just a short drive from the Monterey Bay area sights, wineries and Redwood forests. The area has some great restaurants and shopping just a short drive away and a fun Farmers market within walking distance on Sundays. The owner met us upon arrival, walked us through the condo and it's features and surprised us with some "welcome goodies". The condo has been well maintained and updated. The owners had prepared the condo with toiletries , paper goods and cleaning supplies so we didn't have to rush out immediately to find a grocery. The condo complex itself was quiet and also very well maintained. From watching the sunsets from the beach, discovering local wineries, enjoying the boardwalk, visiting the markets, playing golf, touring the Monterey Bay area, to walking up to the taqueria on the corner,we could not have asked for a better visit and like the other reviewers, really hated to say goodbye."
