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.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: 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!
Why the Owner Chose Soquel, CA, USA:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
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. Member of the Capitola/Soquel Chambers of Commerce
