We designed and built our home in 1987 and had the opportunity to rebuild it after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake! Our 4 children are grown now so we have the time to enjoy our property and vineyard. We grown Pinot Noir grapes and produce estate bottled wine. We feel absolutely fortunate to live in the Santa Cruz area and on this property.
Judy purchased this Estate in 1984
Why Judy chose Day Valley
If you are looking for a relaxing private getaway or vacation this is a natural spot for you. The views are spectacular with sunrises to accompany your morning coffee or beautiful sunsets to compliment a glass of wine of cup of tea. The roof of our wine cellar has a deck with table and chairs to enjoy. The best part is you feel miles and miles from the frantic pace of life yet are only 3 miles from the beach and Aptos Village. It's a short drive on Hwy One to Santa Cruz and only 40 minutes to Monterey.
What makes this Estate unique
Privacy, Quiet and an Astoundingly Beautifully Setting Are Probably Number One On My List of Unique Benefits of Visiting Our Property. the Beautiful Swimming Pool, Hot Tub and Sauna Are Available 24 Hours. a Short 3 Mile Distance to the Beach, Quick Ride On Hwy One to Santa Cruz and Only 40 Minutes to Monterey Are Ideal for a Visit to Monterey Bay.

Lovely Aptos Retreat
My husband and I decided to take our 7-month-old on a weekend trip, and we were so glad we found this gem! Gorgeous setting in the redwoods with a small vineyard and beautiful views, this was the peaceful little getaway we were hoping for. The room is attached to the house but is very private. The owners were very friendly and accessible. Extra perks were the vineyard goats, sweet cat, and indoor pool, sauna, and jacuzzi. Also just a 15 minute drive to Santa Cruz and Capitolla. Can’t go wrong with this place.
Beautiful grounds, quiet, clean
Beautiful location. Room was clean and had everything we needed, including a bottle of their wine. A little out of the way but the silence, view and wildlife are what you get for making the drive. Wish we had more time there to enjoy the pool. Next time!
Beautiful & serene getaway.
It was a little bit of a drive up a windy hill, but so worth it! We loved being away from it all and not only enjoyed how quaint the room and porch was but loved the roaming cat, the two goats (one was really friendly, one took a couple days to earn our trust) and we LOVED the access to the pool, hot tub, and sauna! (The only caveat was we had to cross the deck where the people lived and we worried about disturbing them as they watched TV, etc,) We met one of the owners Judy, in the beginning, and she was very nice and made us feel welcome. The walls are a little thin sometimes so we could hear them talk (not in detail) or walk above us - as I’m sure they heard when we were watching tv, etc but it was not enough to bug us or prevent us from coming back! We enjoyed having coffee in the morning, on the beautiful deck, overlooking the vineyards and when clear, the ocean in the distance (although we loved the fog, too.) The place was enveloped by trees, so it’s a nature lover’s haven, with the sounds of chirping birds and occasional goat blurts (which we loved!)! It was a surprise for my boyfriend’s birthday and he loved it, too.
Lovely weekend in beautiful Aptos
My husband and I enjoyed our stay here. I loved the sunroom just outside the guest room (which overlooks a vineyard)--savored my morning coffee here and watched the fog lift from the vines and surrounding oak trees. We swam in the pool and soaked in the spa. The location really felt secluded and quiet--perfect weekend getaway!
Most peaceful and beautiful than I could have imagined
The property was stunning, with views of the vineyard and little onsite farm. We saw lots of animals on the property - deer, rabbits, and chickens to name a few. The pool and hot tub were fantastic too. Will have dreams of this place for years.
Peaceful & gorgeous
We had a wonderful time. The views of this property are even more stunning in person. The hot tub & sauna were very relaxing after a long day of soccer. I also appreciated all the little details, such as organic coffee cream in the fridge, compostable coffee filters, and eco friendly products. The wine made from their very own grapes was very good and it was a nice touch. Beau, the cat, is such a sweetie. We think he may be a dog in a cat’s body! ;) We’d definitely like to return next year.
