A Secret Garden Sanctuary to rest and recharge...

De ruimte

Super Clean Modern Design, deze lichte, brede open 950 vierkante meter artistieke ruimte gaat uit op een enorme Slate Patio, omgeven door weelderige tropische tuinen. Uitzicht op de Monterey Bay-glans in de verte. Windklokken ringen in de zachte oceaanbriesjes en de Cherry Plum Bomen leven met hongerige vogels; Dikke eekhoorns stuiten van ledematen tot ledematen. In de schemering knipperen romantische witte lichten in de bovenkant van de blik. De Secret Garden is een volledig zelfstandig appartement met een eigen ingang. Het bezit de gehele bodem en omliggende tuinen van dit enorme 3-Story, 3000 vierkante meter Ocean View Home. Wall to Wall Travertijn, levendige kunst, prachtig ontwerp en aandacht voor detail maken deze prachtige ruimte visueel dramatisch maar toch zeer functioneel met alle comfort van het schepsel. De aangepaste badkamer is palatiaal - 200 + vierkante meter creatieve lay-out met on-demand warm water. De eenvoudige en mooie keuken en goed gevulde Pantry hebben alles wat je nodig hebt en meer. Er is een Gas Grill op de patio voor BBQ. Zoals de beste hotels worden Fluffy Towels, Good Linens en Quality Sundries verstrekt. Het expansieve dek 30 meter boven heeft een prachtig uitzicht op de Sleepy Seaside Community, de Blue Pacific en Monterey in de afstand. Het is het 'Gemeenschappelijke Gebied' van het huis en u kunt me ontmoeten wanneer ik daar ben. (Ik ben meestal uit en over het algemeen.) De zonsondergangen zijn geweldig en de geluiden van golven dragen de wind door. Breng je koffie 's ochtends op en geniet van de zonneschijn temidden van de boomtoppen. Na de werkzaamheden als directeur in de High End Hotel Industry, werd de ruimte geïnspireerd door mijn reizen naar Five Star Resorts over de hele wereld - hun beste praktijken stelen. Deze prachtige aangepaste loft-stijl appartement is ideaal voor de veeleisende reiziger. Het is perfect voor mensen die op zoek zijn naar een kwaliteitsbeleving in een rustige, privé-omgeving. Een ervaring om te onthouden ... Bij aankomst wordt u verwelkomd met een fles wijn of mousserende sap, die u kunt genieten van het loungen op de Dreamy Garden Patio, in uw mooie kamer of boven boven op het uitzicht op de oceaan. Ontbijt is de belangrijkste maaltijd van de dag! Begin elke dag met onze Yummy Greek Yogurt, Bagels, Muffins, Granen of Organische Eieren. Franse Pers Koffie / Keurig en Specialty Thees. Organische Volle Melk & PB worden altijd geleverd. U ZIJN WELKOM OM DE MIJN MONTEREY BAY AQUARIUM GUEST PASSES TE BRUIKEN om deze spectaculaire ervaring in te nemen. Ga VIP - direct aan de voorkant van de lijnen naar het "Member's Window"! Kick Back en geniet van de grote HDTV met Home Theater, Netflix, Pandora, DVD's, WIFI. Of u kunt Old School Low-Tech loskoppelen met Board Games, Backgammon, Speelkaarten, Lezen in de Tuin. Boek een Privé Luxe Zonsondergang of Whale Watching Charter op de prachtige 50-voet motorjacht "Meridian". Ze komt uit Moss Landing Harbour waar de Deep Water Canyon eindigt - de favoriete Hang Out Spot voor Humpback Whales, Otters, Zeeleeuwen en Zeevogels. Deze Intimate Two-Hour Cruise kost $ 495 en omvat Captain, Crew en Local Taste Treats. Het is een ervaring die je nooit zal vergeten. Zie haar bij "Secret Harbor Sanctuary - Monterey Bay" en boek vooruit. Loop voor mij langs de beste stranden in de provincie, schoon en ontruimd, minder dan een mijl weg als de Crow Flies. Ga bij laagwater en pak stapels Sand Dollars voor souvenirs. Paddle Kayaks in Elkhorn Slough Wildlife Sanctuary in Moss Landing. Of neem een prachtig beschaafde Eco-Tour met Whisper Charters om vogels, otters en zeeleeuwen dichtbij te zien. Op zaterdagmorgen, loop met de lokale bevolking op de Cabrillo College Farmers Market. Seascape Golf Club en de Resort liggen net in de straat. Stap op de Big Dipper op de Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Sip Santa Cruz Mountain Appellations bij lokale wijngaarden. Bezoek de Redwoods in Big Basin State Park. Neem de spectaculaire aandrijving langs de Pacific Coast Highway naar Big Sur voor een rondleiding die u voor altijd zal onthouden. Stop in Leuke Little Carmel by the Sea voor het diner op weg naar huis. Of gewoon relaxen in The Garden en doe helemaal niets ... "Magisch ... Dream-Like .... Zoet ... Perfect ... Rustig ... Rustig .... Geweldig .... Comfortabel .... Romantisch ... Slim Ontwerp ... Een Mooi Toevluchtsoord .... Mystieke Jungle ... "Dit zijn slechts enkele van de woorden die mijn prachtige gasten hebben gebruikt om de SECRET GARDEN SANCTUARY te beschrijven sinds we begroeten bezoekers. Vakanties moeten goed geleefd zijn. SORRY, GEEN DIEREN - Haal ze. Hou van hen. Maar het appartement is een diervrije zone.

Super Clean Modern Design, this bright, wide-open 950 square foot Artistic Space spills out onto a Huge Slate Patio surrounded by Lush Tropical Gardens -- views of the Monterey Bay shimmer in the distance. Wind Chimes ring in the gentle ocean breezes and the Cherry Plum Trees are alive with hungry birds; fat squirrels bounce from limb to limb. At dusk, romantic white lights twinkle in the canopy above.

The Secret Garden is a fully self-contained apartment with a private entrance. It occupies the entire bottom floor and surrounding gardens of this huge 3-Story, 3000 Square Foot Ocean View Home. Wall to Wall Travertine, Vibrant Art, Splendid Design and Attention to Detail make this Wonderful Space visually dramatic yet supremely functional with all of the creature comforts The Custom Bathroom is Palatial -- 200+ square foot Creative Layout with On-Demand Hot Water. The Simple and Beautiful Kitchenette and Well Stocked Pantry have everything you need and more. There is a Gas Grill on the Patio for BBQ. Like the best hotels, Fluffy Towels, Good Linens and Quality Sundries are provided.

The Expansive Deck 30 feet above has sweeping views of the Sleepy Seaside Community, the Blue Pacific and Monterey in the Distance. It is the "Common Area" of the home and you may meet me when I'm there. (I am out and about most of the time.) The Sunsets are amazing and the sounds of waves carry on the wind. Bring up your coffee in the morning and soak up the sunshine amidst the tree tops.

Having worked as a Director in the High End Hotel Industry, the space was inspired by my travels to Five Star Resorts around the world -- stealing their Best Practices. This Gorgeous Custom Loft-Style Apartment is ideal for the discerning traveler. It is perfect for those seeking a quality experience in a peaceful, private setting.

Vacations should be Well Lived.

SORRY, NO PETS -- Have them. Love them. But the apartment is an animal-free zone.

Toegang voor gasten

De gehele onderste verdieping van dit 3 verdiepingen tellende huis is uitsluitend van u tijdens uw verblijf, samen met de bijgevoegde leisteenplaats en de omliggende tuinen. Ik woon op de bovenste twee verdiepingen van dit enorme huis, maar ik kom en ga van een andere straatinvoer, dus we mogen nooit paden kruisen, tenzij u ervoor kiest. Het zeer bovenste terras met spectaculair uitzicht is een "gemeenschappelijk gebied" voor het huis en u kunt mijn familie daar ontmoeten als ik er rond ben. Ik geef je privacy als je daar bent, maar ik ben blij om te chatten als je dat wilt. Maar vaak ben ik het vaakst vanzelfsprekend. Het object is beperkt tot geregistreerde gasten (1-2 personen) en als u de bezoekers wilt, moet u dit alstublieft op voorhand verwijderen. Onze buurt is niet geschikt voor bijeenkomsten.

The entire bottom floor of this 3-story house is exclusively yours during your stay along with the attached slate patio and surrounding gardens. I live on the top two floors of this huge home, but I come and go from a different street entry, so we may never cross paths unless you choose to.

The very top deck with spectacular views is a "Common Area" for the home and you may meet my family there if I am around. I will give you privacy when you are up there but I am happy to chat if you'd like. I am most often out and about, however.

The property is limited to registered guests (1-2 people) and if you would like visitors, please clear this ahead of time. Our neighborhood is not suited for gatherings.

Interactie met gasten

Ik ben een vriendelijke, open persoon. Ik respecteer echter uw privacy en zal zelden trappen om u te storen. Ik heet u welkom om naar het uitzicht op de oceaan te komen als u wilt chatten. Schrijf me gewoon en we kunnen samenkomen.

I am a friendly, open person. I do, however, respect your privacy and will rarely come down stairs to disturb you. I welcome you to come up to the ocean view deck if you would like to chat. Just text me and we can get together.

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten

'S Nachts bezoeken schunks en wasberen vaak de patio. Niemand (behalve BooBoo) is ooit gelukt en zij zullen gewoon terugkomen in de tuinen als ze je zien. Ze kennen de routine, dus maak je geen zorgen. Absoluut geen huisdieren zijn toegestaan wegens dander achterblijven waardoor allergieën in sommige mensen veroorzaken. Vanwege de Zen Natuur van onze ruimte accepteren wij alleen reserveringen voor twee (2) gasten (inclusief kinderen).
translated by Google

At night, skunks and raccoons frequently visit the patio. No one (except BooBoo) has ever been skunked and they will simply run back into the gardens when they see you. They know the routine, so don't worry.
Absolutely No Pets are permitted due to dander left behind which causes allergies in some people. Because of Zen Nature of our space, we only accept reservations for two (2) Guests (including children).

IS THIS THE PERFECT PLACE FOR YOU?
-- If you are looking for a "partying" type of place, this is NOT the spot for you. We ask that guests respect the peace, quiet and tranquility of the neighborhood -- Imbibe responsibly. No Pot Smoking.

++ WE DO NOT CHARGE A CLEANING FEE. Please leave the place as you found it.

++PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE READ THE HOST DIRECTIONS! YOU WILL BE LOST IF YOU DO NOT. PLEASE.

-=Please park ONLY right next to the RETAINING WALL BELOW THE GARDENS. We don't want to fuel neighborhood parking wars.

--Because we are in a quiet residential neighborhood, we only permit TWO (2) Guests during your stay. This means that only registered guests are permitted to be on property (no additional visitors).

-- PLAN TO CHECK IN NO LATER THAN 9 PM. It gets very dark and very quiet at night and I need to make sure you make it in safe and sound before I go to sleep

-- CHECK OUT IS 11 AM SHARP UNLESS OTHERWISE ARRANGED. (Cleaners come and charge extra if they have to wait.)

-- If you have mobility challenges, negotiating the multitude of hillside stairs could be problematic and I would not recommend staying here.

--Guests are permitted to smoke outside on my patio with all sliding doors closed to prevent smoke sucking into the living space. Please do not smoke out in the street by the neighbors homes or leave butts anywhere.

--When you depart, please leave the doors unlocked for the cleaners to enter.

PLEASE ENJOY:

--You are welcome to eat any of the food and snacks provided.

--Enjoy your “Welcome Wine", my compliments. If you need another bottle, please leave $10 for replacement.

--You are welcome to come up to the top deck to take in ocean and sunset views. It is a common area of the home.

--There is a gas grill just outside the door for BBQ or you may also use the Weber on the top deck.

--The soaps, shampoos and other product are good quality and there for you to use. If you forget your toothbrush, razor or even need a shot of deodorant, don't worry, that's there too.


THE BASICS:

--SOUND CARRIES LIKE CRAZY -- Please respect the peace and quiet of the neighborhood. It's always good to keep this in mind, but especially important in the evenings and when coming and going later after curfew (9 pm as noted by the County).

-- ALWAYS PARK DIRECTLY BELOW THE APARTMENT NEXT TO THE RETAINING WALL.

--Do not put food or coffee grounds down the kitchen disposal. It is too hard on the plumbing. Composting containers are provided.

--PLEASE USE THE CUTTING BOARDS not the counter.

--CONSERVE ENERGY– Please turn off lights when you are not using them.

--RECYCLE, REUSE – Please use recycling bin inside the pantry.

--BIG ASS RACCOONS + SKUNKS – Use care when coming and going at night so you don't get “skunked". Make sure the trash can outside the door is snapped tight.

--STUFF HAPPENS– Please do not flush paper towels, moist towelettes, tampons, condoms or other things down the toilet. A plumbing back up will ruin your trip. There are plastic bags available for trash disposal.

--TILE IS SLIPPERY – Use care when walking in your socks or with wet feet.

--USE WHAT YOU NEED – But please don't remove items from the property.

I hope you love your visit to my special home. While I have been welcoming family and friends to this super cute space for more than a year now, I am new to Airbnb. I would appreciate your input on ways to make the experience even better!

Hope to see you soon!

Trappen klimmen is onvermijdelijk - DO NOT BOOK UNLESS YOU CAN SAFELY NAVIGATE UP + DOWN STAIRS/ PATHWAYS TO THE APARTMENT. THE STAIRS WIND UP THROUGH THE GARDEN, SO YOU MUST USE CARE.
De accommodatie heeft (een) huisdier(en) - I have two little dogs upstairs, BooBoo and JoJo.
Sommige ruimtes worden gedeeld - The very top deck is just outside my home, so you will likely meet us up there.

There are lots of special things about Karen's Secret Garden Sanctuary and the amenities she provides that set it apart. But the most special of all is that patio just outside the very, very large and livable living space. The patio -- beautifully furnished and lush with tropical plants -- is what makes it a sanctuary.

Karen's place was very spacious and both the interior of the house and patio were beautiful. The kitchen was very well stocked with snacks and drinks and there were also quite a few pleasant surprises ex. chocolate truffles, frozen beer glasses and a complimentary bottle of wine. Overall a fantastic experience that I'd recommend to anyone.

We had an amazing time staying at Karen's little sanctuary. It was easy to find, super cute and serene. She checked in with us to make sure we were all set and gave us privacy to enjoy our vacation. She even got us treats and breakfast options! The beauty of the plants were everywhere - so relaxing. We even danced to our wedding song on the gorgeous patio before we renewed our vows. Spectacular find. Thanks again Karen!

I LOVE my home in sweet little Rio Del Mar!

I work as a Financial Advisor and am a Franchise Owner with offices in Downtown San Jose and at Old Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey. My Aptos Home is equidistant between the two locations and every day I feel lucky to come home to this lovely, quiet place near the sea. It is truly my refuge.

In March 2014, after scouring the West Coast for the perfect boat for some time, I purchased "Meridian", a Custom Built 46' Motor Yacht. She is perfect! Captain Brian Ackerman and I transported her from her previous home in the San Francisco Bay to the Tiny Hidden North Harbor of Moss Landing, California. I had researched Santa Cruz Harbor and Monterey but ultimately fell in love with the gleaming sleepy harbor just 15 minutes from my home in Rio Del Mar. Her slip in Moss Landing overlooks pristine sand dunes. Her neighbors are fat Harbor Seals, playful Sea Otters and thousands of beautiful Sea Birds. Perfectly equidistant between Santa Cruz and Monterey, the mouth of the harbor is teeming with pods of whales. Meridian is a spiritual refuge from the Busy World.

I am fortunate to have traveled to wonderful spots around the world and have stayed in some really good resorts. In the 90's, I had a career as a Director in the Hospitality Industry and designing hotel space -- where form meets function -- was my favorite part of the job. I have high expectations for the traveler's experience, both from a professional's perspective and as a savvy, pretty fussy guest. Before breaking ground on the huge, loft-style space, I really put my thinking cap on to insure that every inch was used for a purpose, making it feel fully contained, super functional, inviting and visually appealing. I had fun with the project and am very pleased with how it turned out. It has good energy and I really enjoy sharing it with such excellent people.

The Secret Garden is so amazing because working in the dirt is one of my favorite things to do in the entire world. Besides a therapy, gardening is an art form with so many wild cards in play and a will all its own. It is alive and breathing, adapting to the seasons. These unruly gardens have been a labor of love since I bought my place back in 2008 and they thrive in the gentle coastal climate. Just about every morning, I hit the beach just down the road with my little dog, BooBoo (the Bad Ass). Life, for the most part, is pretty good.

I have lived in Aptos for 30 years and fully appreciate everything this slice of paradise has to offer and never take it for granted. While I'm a pretty busy person, I'm more than happy to share my know-how of the area so that you will have an experience to remember (in a good way!). Just let me know how I can help.

I hope to meet you soon!

Karen, BooBoo, Angel (aka: Angelina Jolie)
