David De La Rosa
About David De La Rosa
I'm David and I work out of my home office on my 86 Acre Security Gated Ranch in the Redwoods above UCSC I love the amazing Redwood Trees and views across Monterey Bay as well as watching wild life. I've been Horse crazy since I was a little kid and I also love riding my Mountain Bike along the beach to fun Bistros and on the bike trails in Wilder Ranch State Park that borders my Ranch.
David De La Rosa purchased this Estate in 1996
Why David De La Rosa chose Santa Cruz
Like most nature lovers, I love new adventures so I created a fun spot for hikers, horse and mountain bike lovers to visit and bring their own horse or Mountain Bike. The Ranch is Private and Gated for your security. It has an elegant Cabin feel and borders Wilder Ranch State Park so you can enjoy wild animals visiting the Ranch daily such as Deer, Hawks, Bunnies, Coyotes, Bob Cats and maybe a Mountain Lion but Mountain Lions are nocturnal so you'll rarely see them but be careful... I've seen 4 Mountain Lions in 24 years... pretty exciting but Animals are unpredictable and can be dangerous so always hike with a walking stick and preferably with a Partner.
What makes this Estate unique
Santa Cruz Ranch is a unique property. There are very few properties as large and beautiful as this private ranch in this area. I love the beauty I get to live in daily and I wanted to share it with others. I hope you take a moment to slow down, listen to nature and breathe the clean mountain and ocean air. I hope the beauty and peace will revive your spirit as it does mine daily.

Clean area and very comfortable bed.
The studio was perfectly equipped for our weekend, and was close to town for dining, shopping and also the beach. David was such a friendly host. We highly recommend this studio for peace and quiet with easy access to conveniences nearby.
As advertised, David's place offers easy access to numerous hiking and biking trails. The space is comfortable and functional, with the added benefit of Rico and Fosse's energy from the nearby corral. Local towns, not previously on our radar, came into focus as this mountain getaway provided an excellent "basecamp" for exploration. We recommend Felton and Davenport Landing for your dining pleasure.
Beautiful unit below main house. Clean, quiet and close to nature.
I'd recommend this for anyone who might have business in the City of Santa Cruz or at the UCSC, but don't want or need proximity to all the hustle and bustle of town.
Thank you and it was really nice having you stay on the Ranch. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself.
I could not recommend more this beautiful property. Great hosting and wonderful nature. We hope to come back.
Santa Cruz Ranch is exactly 6 miles above UCSC and 8 miles above Santa Cruz Beach and Boardwalk. Excellent Road to town, well maintained.
