About Judy

My husband and I have an active organic working vineyard on the property. We take care of all aspects of the vineyard and winery. I prefer to view the vineyard chores as a zen-like experience rather than labor pruning and maintaining the vines. We produce a wonderful estate bottled Pinot Noir wine. Our 4 children are grown and living away from home now. There are free range chickens living the good life in the vineyard and 2 sweet pygmy goats enjoy munching on our weeds!

I am a gardener and spend most days taking care of the landscape.

Judy purchased this cottage in 1984

Why Judy chose California

This property is a unique Santa Cruz treasure. We designed and built the house for our family. We have all the privacy anyone could desire with fantastic views of the ocean and mountains yet only a few miles from Aptos Village. I think we have a vineyard because my husband wanted a tractor!

What makes this cottage unique

You will enjoy a tranquil setting, gorgeous views, a swimming pool, hot tub and sauna with all the privacy you would want. A complimentary bottle of estate Pinot Noir for your stay in included.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Our stay was wonderful. The guest house was perfect. The hosts were responsive and accommodating but not intrusive. The views are incredible. The small town of Aptos had everything you need. There are so many sights to see in the local area. The drive up to the house you see beautiful redwoods but the Henry Cowell Redwood forest is a must see. It has the biggest redwoods. Our only regret of staying was not staying longer. This pool area was one of the most incredible I have seen at a residence. ”

A Very Peaceful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I absolutely loved our stay here and if we decide to vacation in this part of California again we will definitely book here. Checking in and out was a breeze and Judy provided very prompt and courteous answers to the few questions we had. This place is truly on top of the world! The view is amazing! The guest house is very clean and cozy with a super comfortable bed. Everything about this place is just calming. Quiet and comfortable is the short description but there's so much more! We stayed in December and I can only imagine what it is like in the summer with the grape vines full of fruit and the flowers blooming. While we didn't spend a lot of time in the Aptos area, we did enjoy the Red Apple Cafe just down the hill twice for breakfast. They have a very substantial menu and the food was great.

Thank you to Judy for providing such a wonderful vacation rental!

Quiet vineyard escape

  • 5 of 5

We were coming to the area for a driving experience at Mazda Raceway and found the perfect place to relax. Lots of wild animals ,a cute dog and a wonderful modern oasis in the small vineyard. Stayed for 4 Nights and felt comfortable. We used the pool and hot tub and the washer and dryer. Nice shower and comfy bed. Road in and out was one lane and a little hard at night. Judy was friendly and unobtrusive. Would recommend to anyone needing to stay in the area.

Tranquil, comfortable place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

At the top of the hill, overlooking the vineyard, with distant views of the ocean. It's a very nice 1 bedroom studio, that is very comfortable. Very much enjoyed our stay.

Amazing place for a solo getaway

  • 5 of 5

The guest house was a perfect place to spend a peaceful and relaxing weekend by myself. The cottage was lovely and very comfortable with great views. Judy's hospitality was impressive, as was the wine. I spent the weekend reading; hiking at the nearby Forest of Nisene Marks (a beautiful place); enjoying the wonderful pool, sauna and hot tub; walking on the beach; and enjoying the solitude. I will definitely return.

Lovely apartment, very well appointed. Bed was exceptionally comfortable. I was VERY pleased! I'm just sorry that the apartment doesn't have a second/separate room where my night-owl wife could watch TV long after I go to bed...but having been solo on this trip, the apartment was just perfect for my needs!

Through no fault of the owners, I spent the vast majority of every day with my sons and their families who live just 2 miles away. My boys have left academia and wind power management in order to rehab a 43 acre organic strawberry farm in Watsonville, so I have to apologize to Judy for the fact that she and her husband were subjected to having our various pick-up trucks and cars coming and going at all hours of the day and night.

And sadly, I was too busy to even have a chance to use either the hot tub or sauna!!

I must say how impressed I am that Valencia School Rd doesn't get blocked off more often than it does by rain-soaked falling trees! The one time I got stuck, the truck immediately behind me was a firewood vendor (!), but his chain saw was on another job! I managed to turn my little Subaru around and head down the opposite side of the mountain, but I'm not at all sure how he got his big rig out of there in a timely fashion. Such is the joy of country living, something we Mainers understand all too well...

Bottom line: I'd recommend this rental property HIGHLY!

Perfect getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

Hidden gem! Beautiful, quiet, peaceful location. Great amenities; nice deck with table, pool and hot tub, kitchenette! Short drive to hiking, Aptos restaurants, and wine tasting. Helpful and sweet hostess plus their own vineyard wine is great too! Will definitely be back!
