Please note: Villla Soquel is NOT suitable or available for loud, outdoor, into the night parties.

SUN - SUN - SUN - Enjoy its warmth when it's fogged in at the beaches only six miles away. Villa Soquel is located well above the fog line!

Modern home on top of the world surrounded by redwoods, oaks, bay, fruit, and maple trees. Red tailed hawks soar overhead, hummingbirds dart about. Song birds sing in the trees. Quail bevies flit across the road and adjacent meadows. Sometimes a wild peacock strolls proudly by!

Quiet, peaceful, secluded, but not remote! Only 6 easy miles to the Monterey Bay! One turn off the Old San Jose Road. Then straight up the private driveway to the Villa! You can't get lost coming here.

Swimming pool - spa - concrete and wood decks. Lots of sunshine. Shade if you want it. Views! Hiking trails. Picnic on the lawn. Use of kitchen.

Very relaxing environment. Do some serious thinking, drawing, writing, dancing, poetry or nothing at all. Just rest! Plenty of on site parking. Will consider an RV up to 25 feet long.

Six minutes to Capitola Village's restaurants, shopping, dancing, bars, BEACH and events. Twelve minutes to Downtown Santa Cruz, the Beach Boardwalk and all they offer in that wild west college town!

Quieter towns and beaches one half hour to the south like Moss Landing, Seaside and Monterey. Travel North one hour to Half Moon Bay, Atascadero, and Ano Nuevo State park to see the elephant seals or whale watching!

Guests love to stay at the Villa Soquel because it is private, peaceful, naturally beautiful but NOT located in the middle of nowhere.

About Daniel Jadick

I am a city boy from New York. I moved to California in 1976. I've lived in San Diego, Orange County and Santa Cruz. Kathy is from Detroit. She has lived in Napa and Santa Cruz California.

We welcomed our first Villa Soquel guests last June (2012) and wow has the Villa become a popular destination!

Rest assured that you will feel very welcomed and comfortable should you decide to stay at our charming and relaxing Soquel Villa in the Santa Cruz Mountains!

If you are a host in the Santa Cruz area, please feel free to refer to our Villa when your place is booked. Thanks!

Daniel Jadick purchased this villa in 2011

Why Daniel Jadick chose Santa Cruz

We have lived in several locations in Santa Cruz county since 1985. Mostly close to the beaches. The Soquel Villa mountain property is by far the best. It's close to town, but when you are outside on the deck, you do not see another home. No traffic, plenty of parking areas. RV's can park here! Private trails to walk off a big meal or to meditate on the property.

Soquel is not a big city or town. Mostly restaurants and antique stores here. Short drive to bathing and surfing beaches of Santa Cruz.

What makes this villa unique

The trees! The birds! The privacy! The long view down to the Monterey Bay. Above the fog line. We have sun when the beaches are fogged in.

Los Alamitos, CA

A beautiful quite location with plenty of amenities for both entertaining and a relaxing stay.

  • 5 of 5

This a very comfortable home that sits in a very quite and private setting nestled in and amongst a variety of trees including redwoods and oaks. Your in the forest, but less then 10 minutes down the road from either the town of Soquel or the beaches of Capitola. We were visiting for a family wedding, but this would be a great place to stay for a family vacation, get together with friends or a work retreat. From the amenities to the renters guide book this home delivers hospitality. The communication from the owner Daniel, throughout the rental process was exceptional.

Amazing experience at this Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Soquel Villa .. what an amazing experience! The home is just beautiful, comfortable and has everything you need! The pool/Jacuzzi was perfect for day and evening! The views at the villa are breathtaking... the trees that are off the front porch that are lined with colored lights was such a nice touch! We sat a night on the porch with a glass of wine, while the kids played ping pong and video games in the large game room! They had a blast. Coffee in the morning in the living room with a beautiful view as the sun shined on the property was such a treat. What a way to wake up! The location was perfect... 15 min to Capitola Beach and Santa Cruz. The villa was spotless, equipped with everything you can imagine! The weather was perfect! We have rented other homes over the years, but this one... spectacular!! Thank you Daniel for taking the time to make sure our stay was comfortable and that we had everything we needed!! Peace!

lovely get-a-way in the redwoods, above the fog, pool and spa!

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely place, much closer to the redwoods than any intersection, and we sat outside by or in the pool for a week, with intermittent trips to Santa Cruz/Soquel or even Saratoga as needed. The owner, Daniel, was perfectly responsive and responsible; any fog below burned off by breakfast, the funky stove (difficult to adjust burners) will no doubt be addressed soon; the grill worked flawlessly...

Owner's Response: Hello John, About that Thermadore stove... For the first four months that I owned the Villa I thought that the stove was weird too. I called Thermadore and they explained that the stove is actually computer controlled for the simmer settings. It cycles on and off making one think that it is not working correctly. With a propane stove cycling is the only way to achieve a simmer since propane burns considerably hotter than natural gas. I will place a label on the stove so that future guests will know about this feature. I am also looking at alternative stoves to replace the propane with. I would like to go to induction electric soon. Thank you for your generous rating and come back any time! Peace, Daniel

Amazing Spot

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a hillside retreat. This is the place! It has a perfect view of a forested valley. Great for soaking in the hot tub and bbqing. It's got an electric drum set and a ping pong table which provided endless entertainment.

10/10 highly recommend.

No more turns! Go straight up as Porter becomes Old SJ Rd.

Five miles up then look for our mailbox on the right.

Villa Soquel is located in the Santa Cruz Mountains only 6 miles from the Monterey Bay beaches. An easy and relaxing drive. The Villa's driveway is on Soquel San Jose Rd. The number is on both sides of our mailbox.

We have three old redwood stands on the property. We also have a collection of native and non-native trees and foliage on the property.
