About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 6

Nestled in the Santa Cruz mountains, this peaceful and charming, pet-friendly Central California Coast vacation home is an ideal destination for relaxation. Get away from the demands of the Bay Area with a weekend in the mountains near Felton, not far from lively Santa Cruz. Ideal for families, there's a jungle gym in the large yard and plenty of space indoors for your whole group to feel right at home.

This mountain location is only a 30 minute drive from Santa Cruz's popular beaches and boardwalk. And yet, when you're here, it's like being in a quiet cabin in the woods. Both Quail Hollow Ranch County Park and Loch Lomond Recreation Area have plenty of outdoor activities and for a game of golf, just head to the Pasetiempo Golf Course, just 10 miles away.

When you are not out wine tasting at nearby vineyards or catching some waves at the shore, this Felton Getaway Cabin boasts tall, wood-beamed ceilings in the living room, a wood-burning fireplace, WiFi, and even Netflix streaming. In addition, there's a collection of board games for the kids and a huge outdoor lot for everyone (including the pets) to enjoy.

You'll have a full kitchen, dining room, and two bedrooms here for up to six guests. And if you do bring your pets, up to two dogs can join you - an additional nightly fee applies. Featuring a unique, detached floor plan, the upstairs and downstairs are only connected through an outdoor stairway. The lower level is ideal for kids with two twin beds in the bedroom and the cabin's full bathroom.

While on the main level, you'll have the living room, dining room, kitchen, and the first bedroom. You'll also have a washer and dryer for clean clothes whenever needed, so there's no need to try and keep you're clothes clean while out having fun.

This Felton vacation cabin is perfect for a family getaway to the peaceful, quiet region just outside of the Bay Area. Only four miles away is Trout Farm Inn - stop by for a hearty brunch, karaoke nights, or an afternoon lounging around the community pool. Of course, you can always be on the beach in an easy 30 minutes! Walk along the sand, visit the popular Santa Cruz Boardwalk, or just relax on the sand.

For a year-round California getaway that's big on charm, plan a stay at this Felton vacation home. Tucked away in the trees, it's ideal for recharging and unwinding, surrounded by wineries, mountains, and not too far away, the scenic Santa Cruz beaches.

Nice area but home has a lot of problems.

  • 3 of 5

Don't even think about renting this place, if you plan on driving at night. The roads leading up to the cabin have hairpin turns, non-existent or confusing signage, and several sections where the asphalt is deteriorating and sliding down the hills. It's dangerous. Even in the daytime, we got lost 6 times in 2 days, even with Vacasa's written instructions and our GPS turned on.

The property itself is alright, however, its fallen into disrepair:

Downstairs door doesn't lock; anyone can enter the premises just by pushing open the door.

Torn window screens.

Both the upstairs and downstairs screen doors are broken.

Downstairs mini-fridge makes a loud clanging sound, when the compressing kicks on, waking anyone in the room.

Fire extinguishers have expired certificates.

The cleanliness is also substandard. We found dirty underwear in the sofa bed! (The maids didn't change the dirty sheets from the previous occupants. Inexcusable.)

Also, the fact that the downstairs and upstairs aren't connected is insane. We didn't think it would be that a big deal, but in hindsight we should have passed on this location; it really sucks, in the middle of the night, having to go outside by yourself, and go to the downstairs bathroom.

Remote location for Adults

  • 3 of 5

If your goal is to get away from it all and just relax at the house, this is a good place to stay. If you want to have easy access to the Monterrey Bay area, it is not the best choice. The nearest grocery store is 20 minutes away in Felton and Santa Cruz is at least 30 minutes away so be sure you pack everything you need. It is not ideal for families with young children because the upstairs and downstairs spaces are only connected through a staircase that is outside the house. There is only one bathroom and it is downstairs. So, the people who sleep upstairs have to go outside and down the stairs to get to the bathroom. Remember to take the key because if the bathroom door is locked, you won't be able to get in. The nearest established hiking trails are several miles away. With that said, the house would be perfect for a group of adults who want to get away, cook together, watch movies, and just relax.

Peaceful, quality family vacation cabin

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the cabin for our family vacation, spending most of our days in Santa Cruz. We chose to stay here to give our family a camping type of location, without sacrificing the convenience of a bathroom, beds, privacy, kitchen, etc. We are a family of six, from age 8 down to 5 months, so we needed the extra amenities with an opportunity to explore nature and spend quality time together. We would have liked more time to explore, but the long drive to and from our daily outings brought us back to the cabin too late to really enjoy the outdoor space. The cabin's layout was a little challenging with our toddler, but mostly because she's an escape artist and runner. We really enjoyed the beautiful setting, peaceful environment, and quality family time we would not have had by staying in a hotel or condo in Santa Cruz. Over all, we were happy with our choice and really enjoyed our trip! Oh, and don't forget to sign the guest book! It was really neat looking through the different guests over the many years--over 60 years of guests!

Tucked Away. Amazing Location.

  • 4 of 5

I would come here just for the location. Our two boys aged 14 and 8 had a blast. The play area and the outdoor seating made it spectacular. Crisp fresh mountain air and the peaceful quiet was a welcome change from the mundane city life. Boys enjoyed the hammock and the trails. It was Pitch dark at night and the stars gazing was great.

The home is very well stocked. The kitchen was very convenient. Even though we walked in with the microwave being broken, it did not matter to us as we found a way to cook than to reheat in the microwave. The dining area was our go to place where we played Monopoly for hours. A very thoughtful place, we were delighted to see the collection of movies they had. Over 200 or more. They have so many Board games. I would suggest bringing some with you as well. The Roku worked great. We had issues with WIFI 2nd day but had so much to do that not connecting to wifi did not make a difference, it was a welcome happening....NO WIFI YAY....we didn't even bother to call and magically it connected again. When you walk in at first the Musky smell is over bearing but trust me you get used to it. Also, bring a lot of Mosquito Repellents and Fly Swatter, they will come in handy.

The downstairs room was amazing. It's very private. The 1 bath was very difficult in the night. Since we had kids sleep with us upstairs, even though they wanted their own privacy, it was difficult for us to leave our kids during the night. To use the Bathroom you have to go downstairs and it was very inconvenient for us. For some, it may be a welcome privacy so don't get put off. The location is well worth that small inconvenience. It worked like an adventure for us when my little one had to go at 2 in the night. Just the who experience was adventurous. When you step out, it's pitch dark and you can hear rustling in the bushes as soon as you open that door. Just Racoons. They did provide lanterns, so to the boys, it was an exhilarating

Overall....a good experience.

Nice location odd little cabin

  • 3 of 5

The property was the ideal getaway my wife and I were looking for. It is very remote and private, yet a very short drive from Santa Cruz and surrounding area. The quirk of this cabin, besides the bed not being very comfortable, is that the bathroom is outside and down the stairs. For a couple in our mid-fifties, this proved to be more than a little inconvenient, it was an an annoyance. For these reasons, we would not stay at this property again.
