The space
Our guest suite is on the upper level of our home and totally private from the main residence. We are off the beaten path, centrally located in the Monterey Bay & only 15 minutes from Rt. 1. A DIY continental breakfast is provided in your refrigerator for two guests the first morning. Enjoy the patio seating areas bordered by the flowering salvia, low granite rock walls and views of the redwoods.

The private bathroom has a skylight, combined shower and bath tub, plenty of fluffy towels, and all the necessary toiletries. There are hikes nearby that are on private property and available to you, just ask us for the details. You will have a California State Park pass to use while you are our guest. ($125 value if lost)

The kitchenette includes a mini fridge, microwave, coffee press, electric kettle and necessary plates, cups & utensils. In advance and upon request, we will provide everything needed for the use our barbecue, except your menu items!

The Forest Nisene Marks State Park is a twenty minute walk from our home or a ten minute drive. The drive from Aptos Village to our home is along Cathedral Drive, it is a narrow winding road that follows the curves of Aptos Creek. There are no street lights along Cathedral, so after sunset it will be dark, just drive slowly and enjoy the adventure. It is totally worth the short drive, if you want to be away from the city lights.

Where you’ll be

Aptos, California, United States

Our home is located in Mangels Gulch next to The Forest of Nisene Marks State Park, our home is in the woods facing south with plenty of sun exposure. You will feel as if you are miles away from the rush of life. In reality, you will only be two miles from the Village of Aptos, where you will find a few interesting shops, cafes, wine tasting and a variety of restaurants. You can also walk out your door and be surrounded by coastal redwoods!

You may notice my rates are slightly higher than other similar AirBnb accommodations. The reason for this is simple, my guests not only have a sweet place to sleep, but they also are able to have an EXPERIENCE!

A mini vacation where guests are spoiled. The fires are prepared for them, they can cook on the bbq, use the private hot tub and enjoy the evening by the fire. All your dishes are washed for you and returned for further use. Staying here is a complete experience, you will be pampered and catered to during your stay. Your privacy will also be respected.

The addition of the Hot Springs hot tub is a real bonus, but also requires more cleaning time. The filters are cleaned, pH is balanced and the water is kept at the correct level of chlorination before each guest arrives.

The drive to our home is along a narrow road that follows Aptos Creek, so as a creek will curve so does the road to our home. There are towering redwoods, wildlife frequently cross the road, so please drive slowly and enjoy the beautiful two mile drive! There are no street lights along the way. If you plan to arrive after dark there will be whites lights on along the redwood stair case to light the way for you.

In our lifetime there will be constant change, we will experience love and endure loss. We will have the opportunity to choose our personal adventures and follow our dreams. I prefer to surround myself with people who have positive intention. Every person we interact with creates a memory, a thread that may last a lifetime.

It was not a dream of mine to open a guest studio, but the idea gave me an opportunity for a personal adventure. I have created a beautiful space for guests to have a pleasant experience. With every guest there is a story to be shared and a chance for me to complement and enhance their experience by doing things I enjoy. This gives me great personal pleasure.
