About Kit Landis & Maia Madden
I was born in France but raised in New Jersey. I got my BA at New College in Florida and then my Masters in Journalism at UC Berkeley. I worked for restaurant guides in San Francisco and was the editor of the Yoga Journal for many years. I love traveling, cooking, walking, sailing, reading and doing private tours. My husband, Kit Landis, is a sailor, winemaker, tennis player and personal injury attorney.
Why Kit Landis & Maia Madden chose Santa Cruz
Just repainted and updated, the apartment has incredible views of the ocean all the way to Monterey and is equipped with everything guests need, including free wifi and a 55-inch television with Dish. The carpets are new as is the bathroom. Quiet and private, our place offers plenty of parking as well as the use of a spa and swimming pool. It's a home away from home with a resort feeling, yet is just minutes from all Santa Cruz has to offer.
What makes this Apartment unique
The outdoor deck is perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee or, on warm nights, a dinner al fresco. Huge windows frame views in every direction. During the summer, guests are welcome to lounge by the pool, and the spa can be warmed up any time of the year. Just ask at least 30 minutes before you want to go in!

Quiet and relaxing
Super nice hosts. Place was spotless and perfect for a little weekend getaway. Loved hanging by the pool. Just far enough away from all the commotion downtown and easy drive down to the beach.
Wonderful private apartment
What a lovely apartment. Very private. We did not use the pool, but the views were so awesome. Highly recommend.
Thank you so much, to the best guests one can wish for!
A Wonderful Jewel!
Thank you Maia, such a gracious hostess greeting us with her kindness, cute dog Jasper and a nice bottle of wine. Came down from Sonoma County to celebrate my hubby's birthday and it was a hot weekend in the Cruz. This place is an amazing big open clean apartment, very private with incredible views from up above Santa Cruz. While only a short drive into town, like 10 minutes or less, it offers a quiet atmosphere up in the trees, away from the city vibe. Maia has thought of everything you might need for a great getaway, and I appreciate her details to my special request. Thank you for a dip in the lovely pool, and the views, did I mention how awesome they are? Can't wait to visit again. I give it all the stars possible :)
Thank you, Azja! You were wonderful guests and I hope you come again.
Very quiet and peaceful! Great view! Wish I had a pair of binoculars!
The view was perfect!
We enjoyed a very nice stay. Found a bottle of wine and chocolates when we arrived. Yea! The place was very comfortable. Hot tub was great. I would stay here again and again. Someone commented on hearing the garage door opening and closing. You could hear it in the living room but it was very slight and didn't bother us at all.
Thank you, Mark, for your kind review! We do hope you return again and again. Guests like you make it all worthwhile.
The view is spectacular and the location super quiet. It is a 5 minute drive to Shoppers Corner, a great family run grocery, 10 minutes to downtown Santa Cruz and the beach.The apartment is quite spacious for 2 people and had everything we needed to cook in the kitchen. The apartment is squeaky clean. We have family in Santa Cruz and Pacific Grove (apt. has easy access to the highway) and we look forward to staying there many more times.
The apartment is located above our home on a hilltop between two golf courses. It has forest views except to the South where the views are of the ocean and city of Santa Cruz. Despite the privacy and seclusion the site is only a five-minute drive from town.
