About our home

Though not obvious at first sight our house was built in the 1890s as a mountain lodge. We have our "own" redwood trees and are surrounded by pear and apple orchards. There is a sweeping view of Monterey Bay and the house is light filled with lots of large windows to see the view. Peaceful country setting within 30 minutes of Santa Cruz and other beach towns. San Francisco is 1 and 1/4 hour north of us. We do have a cat, dog, and 5 chickens to care for. Kids welcome but not equipped for those under 3.


More about us

  1. We are a (mostly) retired couple with grown children that sometimes travel with us.

  2. Susan was a professor of nursing and still teaches very part time online. Charles managed a water district, but was trained as an agronomist.

  3. We love to travel and also to work in our gardens and orchards. When traveling we enjoy museums and other cultural events, eating the local food, and hiking.

Where is it?


Santa Cruz is the quintessential beach town with a boardwalk, wooden roller coaster, and lots of surfers. San Francisco is just over an hour away as is Monterey. There are plenty of hikes nearby, including through redwood forests.
