About Derek Timm

We love the beach and Santa Cruz! We founded Montalvo Homes & Estates, a high end residential and commercial brokerage in Santa Cruz. I serve as president of the local educational foundation, library friends board and serve on the Planning Commission for Scotts Valley.

Derek Timm purchased this villa in 2014

Why Derek Timm chose Beach and Boardwalk District

We designed this property and built it from the ground up in our favorite spot in Santa Cruz. Construction completed in October 2014. We used the finest building materials, and borrowed ideas on amenities from resorts we have visited around the world. There really isn't a better location to experience all the fun of Santa Cruz. The location puts in you a spot where you never have to get in your car to enjoy all that Santa Cruz has to offer. You could stay a month and not hit every restaurant in walking distance.

What makes this villa unique

From the moment you drive up, you'll notice the arched toped hand hewn wooden doors, and when you step into your unit, you will find old world hand chiseled travertine stone floors through out. Enjoy your favorite drink from the bar in the kitchen, while watching the waves break on Cowells Beach. Dozen of restaurants are just outside your door, or if you like to cook, the Viking Range is professional quality. If you are travelling with Friends, you'll enjoy having two master suites, each with a kind size bed. We designed this property for our own enjoyment, and we hope you love it as much as we do!

Perfect Santa Cruz Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are a family in years of 70 down to 5 months and this was a perfect fit for us. Everything is just across the street. When a child or the older generation got tired they could go home take a nape and meet back up. One day spent at beach, next day spent walking through the stores, and then on our last day going on rides and playing games on the boardwalk. Several restaurants are across the street where we dined every night and a wonderful coffee shop just next door. The villa itself is extremely well kept up, very clean, comfortable and attractive. I was surprised to have such soft sheets and comfortable bed, usually I find people try to save money on those things, and how I do appreciate the pillows, sheets and bed. One extra plus they did not try to chump me on my deposit, full refund promptly. We will return, the best place we have stayed in the Santa Cruz area. Perfect

Beautiful Condo, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our groups of 8 adults could not have been happier with this condo or its location. From the huge "chef's" kitchen to the ocean views, the place had it all. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for upscale accommodations and easy access to the heart of the Santa Cruz beach scene.

  • 5 of 5

Place we stayed at was beautiful. It provided all the necessities we needed for our vacation, it was laid out well, it was clean, centrally located to all the tourist areas of Santa Cruz and professional managed. We would definitely rent it again and I recommend it to any individuals wanting to stay in Santa Cruz close to the wharf and the boardwalk .

Great location , Great home

  • 5 of 5

3generation, family of 10. Home very clean and comfortable. Very close to everything-wharf, boardwalk, restaurants and only a 1.5 mile to grocery store. After parking in large garage we only took car out once to go to store. Most items provided, soap, shampoo, conditioner...etc.

Only improvement could be more glass wine glasses, hate drinking good wine in plastic, and a couple more dish towels. One dish towel was not ideal. We had a great time and will most definitely be back.

Wonderful place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We rented the third floor and penthouse as home base for a family reunion over a three-day weekend and couldn't have been happier! The kitchen was big enough and well-equipped to make dinner for 25 people. The layout made it easy to move around in. The beds were super comfy and the bathrooms were a dream. Having the barbecues on both floors and access to the roof deck made it very usable and spacious. Really, no stone was left unturned in making this house a real home for your guests. It is a beautifully designed space and we would love to come back sometime. Also, working with Derek and Alex was very easy and congenial. Thank you for a great time!
