About Derek Timm

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 ocean at 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!

The Villa is the perfect place to stay when you have a large family or multiple families wanting to

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed for a second time at the Monarch Villa and enjoyed ourselves very much. The place is very clean and well stocked. The location is ideal for my 70+-year-old parents. We have already booked the place again for next year! We love the huge kitchen because we are in Italian family love to cook. We have relatives that come down to Santa Cruz during the same week as we do, and so it's fun to have them over and there's plenty a room for them as well.

This is my family's third year staying here. It's a great location for my kids and my aging parents. The elevator is awesome! It is kept very clean. The open floor plan is great and the kitchen is fantastic.

Exceptional home with outstanding location!

  • 5 of 5

Derek, owner, was wonderful with communication, and he even met the group when they checked in. Location is outstanding, central to everything and right on the beach! The place was immaculate. Highly recommend the home, the location and Derek. Derek also provided catering company that was outstanding and local restaurants that were a big hit with the group.

Thank you, we will book this exact home again if we are in the area again.

Very close to the Boardwalk and Beach

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Spacious. Open floor plan. Ideal to rent w/large families or multiple couples. We had three mini groups within my family stay here during our trip plus we comfortably hosted a dinner w/the larger family of 30+. Owner was available and quickly responded to any needs or questions.
