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 Santa Cruz

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 property is amazing- updated, clean, and comfortable. The location can't be beat, just steps away from the pier, sand, and water. Worth every penny!!!! We spent hours on the penthouse patio, taking in views of the water and enjoying the weather.

Your place was very spacious, clean, and has an excellent location.

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great time because of the excellent location. The beds are very comfortable and rooms are large. The kitchen is beautiful and well-equipped. The evenings were quiet, we did not hear a lot of ruckus going on outside. Little things that maybe we wish there was: a couple of more comfy chairs in the family room. Because the place sleeps 10, we usually have more than two cars. So parking was a little tricky for the third car. ( I appreciated the two spots though. ) It was very nice to have an elevator. My parents are getting older now. Derek was very kind and easy to work with. That always makes a vacation off to a good start.

Perfect location and size for our family of 10

  • 5 of 5

Our stay June 19 - 24 was great. We had 5 adults and 5 kids (aged 4 a 12). The proximity to the beach and the boardwalk was a big plus. We could easily walk to both. The home was spacious and well furnished. The manager was attentive and available. We will book again next June. We would recommend to friends and family.
