Whether glampers like hiking in the ancient redwood forests or prefer to enjoy sandy beaches, this luxury tree house near Monterey Bay is the place to be. The tree house is well equipped and incredibly designed, accommodating up to four guests. It has a comfortable, high queen-size bed to accommodate two guests. Two tri-fold Shikibuton sets and two sleeping bags are available to accommodate any additional guests. There is a kitchen with a small stove, a refrigerator, cooking tools, and basic kitchen staples such as spices, oil, vinegar, sugar, and tea. There is a bathroom with a shower and toilet.

Guests can also enjoy relaxing in their private hot tub under the trees - kept at about 103 degrees for a perfect soak before going to bed. In addition, there is a gas stove for heating and a TV and DVD player with a varied movie collection for guest entertainment. The glamping tree house is always cleaned with environmentally-friendly cleaning products and guests are requested to minimize their towel and sheet changes if they're staying less than a week to continue with the luxury camping site's eco-friendly practices.

The retreat also comes with a very friendly cat, Grey, who lives outside. She loves attention and is currently employed full-time as a mouser! All linens are provided by the host. There is a two night minimum on the weekends and a three-night minimum on holiday weekends.

Nestled in the middle of the Sequoia forest in the Santa Cruz Mountains, this site is near the Monterey Bay area and the city of Santa Cruz. The tree house is located approximately 17 minutes from HWY 1 (Pacific Coast HWY), and once there glampers can either drive to the tree house (only 4x4) or walk the path through the forest for a few hundred yards.

The weather in this spot is perfect almost all year round as the property is located in the "Banana Belt"—a microclimate with mild winters and enjoyable, warm summers. The tree house is isolated and secluded, making it the perfect place to come and feel away from it all.
