PLEASE READ THROUGH ALL OF THE INFORMATION PROVIDED PRIOR TO REQUESTING TO STAY WITH US. WE HAVE A SNEAKY QUESTION WE LIKE ANSWERED TO MOVE FORWARD WITH ACCEPTING. 

If you're looking for an ADULTS ONLY, beautiful and quiet place to enjoy a king size bed, rest, kick back and hear the birds and wind in the trees, you've found it!  While we do enjoy the energy of young children, we live in a very quiet neighborhood and have made the decision to exclusively host adult guests looking for a restful retreat. We have also decided that we will not make exceptions to this decision and invite those looking for a family experience to continue their search on the Hipcamp platform. There are many family friendly hosts excited to accept children of all ages! 

Sam n Alex is a private, outside entry room at the rear patio of our home with its own hot tub, gas fire pit and separate wood fire pit. You have an unobstructed view from the bedroom and patio of the meadow and mountain with privacy. 

Sam n Alex features very a high ceiling with huge skylight.. in rich clear heart redwood.. and has a private bathroom-shower. There is also our gorgeous swimming pool area complete with outdoor shower and bathroom, as well as a community barbecue and cleanup area. 

COVID-19 - While we offer soap, hot water and disinfectant spray we trust that our campers are taking precautions to stay safe and will practice social distancing while staying with us. We do not have anything marked, as we trust that we all are aware of how far 6 feet apart is. ;)  We clean and disinfect the bathroom after each guest checks out and ask each camper to clean up before and after themselves to ensure their own safety.  Sadly, someone has already stolen some of our supplies and we can't afford to keep giving away free things. We know that YOU would never do that....

There are two things we want to know before moving forward with accepting your request. Please let us know how many cigarette smokers are requesting to book and that you are aware that this booking does not offer a place to cook right outside your door.  This will indicate to us that you have taken the time to read through our information and that there are no false expectations about the set up. We have found this to be necessary and appreciate your understanding.

Join us and enjoy all the Santa Cruz mountains has to offer!

Gordon was a great host and we had a wonderful time. Room is attached to their house but there is a jacuzzi, fire pit and little picnic set up for your private use.

Our stay at Sam and Alex Rudy Ranch had everything we had expected and a bit more. Gordon and Runi are perfect hosts - super warm, with great eye to details. Gordon offered us tips for hikes and food options, and also treated us to amazing coffee in the morning.
The room is super comfortable, with an amazing view. The only sounds we could hear were those of birds. The fire pit and the hot tub in the porch were the best things to end the days after long hikes in Big Basin.

Gordon was an amazing host with a super cool property. We're hoping to stay again any time we need a break from the city or on the way south. The property backs up into the woods with a few other camp sites down next to the pool area. The room was very clean and we had our own private hot tub right out front.
Boulder Creek is such a cute little town as well with all the amenities you need within walking distance. We grabbed some local pizza and beer in town and took it back to have by the fire and it was just a real pleasant time. Thanks again we hope to be back soon!

I enjoyed my stay at Gordon's house after a day hiking Big Basin, less than 10 miles away.
It's not a typical Hipcamp experience as it's a room (with private access) in a (beautiful) house, but the area makes it a good outdoorsy place to stay.
The hosts were very responsive by message and offered us coffee and some food in the morning. I'd go again in the summer to enjoy the pool!

A real swell place in a swell town. Gordon is an extremely caring and welcoming host.

We had a campfire at night and wine by the pool during the day. The spot secluded but super close to town, so we were able to walk to dinner and then breakfast the following morning.

Easy drive to all the good stuff in the area. Clean room. Lots of thoughtful amenities.

Thank you, Gordon!!

Gordon was an incredibly thoughtful host. Communicative, made us coffee in the morning, and gave us lots of tips for planning out our day in the Santa Cruz mountains and driving route 1. Would definitely recommend staying here, and we hope to come back again!
