WINTER PRICE REDUCTION + $50 CLEANING WAIVED THRU MARCH OF 2023! 

ADULTS ONLY. PLEASE READ THROUGH ALL OF THE INFORMATION PROVIDED PRIOR TO REQUESTING TO STAY WITH US. A REQUEST TO BOOK INDICATES THAT YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH THE AMENITIES AND UNDERSTAND OUR RULES. 

This listing, Sam n Alex is one of 4 sites at Rudy Ranch. Our property wide, maximum capacity is 16 and all campers have access to the swimming pool, pool bathroom and shower during their stay. This room has a private bathroom with shower.

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 and gas fire pit. You have an unobstructed view from the bedroom and patio of the meadow and mountain with total privacy. 

Sam n Alex features very a high ceiling with a huge skylight. (we provide sleep masks) The walls are rich, clear heart redwood, and has a private bathroom with a glass shower. There is also our gorgeous swimming pool area complete with an outdoor shower and bathroom. We supply towels for your use and ask that you shower before using either the hot tub or swimming pool and not wear any lotions or oils during use. 

COVID-19 - While we offer soap, hot water, hand sanitizer, 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.  

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

Very welcoming hosts. Cabin was east to access. Very clean and decorated well. Hot tub and back patio are very private. Easy directions for all areas of the rental.

Thank you for the kind review and recommendation, Ray! We would be happy to have you back any time. We will be adding some cozy touches that will include a charming, little, electric, faux fireplace and luxurious throws for cooler weather. It's always so nice to enjoy the hot tub when the air is crisp. Hope to see you during our colder months. Cheers! Roni

My partner and I enjoyed our stay at the cozy and charming “Sam n Alex” 30 minutes to the heart of Santa Cruz. The residents were quiet, respectful and the place was clean.
The hosts had lots of thoughtful add-ons like coffee, water, extra napkins, spoons, etc. the hot tub was amazing and wish we had more time to enjoy the swimming pool! Overall it was a great place to stay at, and the price is also very reasonable. Thank you !!

Response from Gordon, the Host, on September 8th, 2022

Thank you so much for the great review and recommendation, Maritza! I really do try to think of everything I would want to have in the little space to make it easy to just relax. We hope to have you back for another visit one day soon. We will be converting the space into a cozy, cool weather retreat in the coming months. The hot tub is amazing when the air is crisp. Cheers! Roni

Well-appointed, private, and super cute space! I was so glad to find this gem of a place for our 3-night stay. Hot tub was great. Everything was super clean. Gordon and Roni are very nice too. Got to meet a few other guests at the pool one day - all very nice! The next afternoon we had the pool to ourselves! Loved having use of the common fridge & freezer near the pool too. An unexpected bonus!

This deer was our first visitor during our stay. We also met an adorable tuxedo cat who peered into our window and said hello.Loved the use of a Jeep grill for the pond backdrop in the patio. Nice touch! Now all that is needed are some fish! :)

Our stay was very relaxed and peaceful. The place was very cute and we enjoyed the pool and hot tub numerous times. It’s a very nice town with a handful of good food options, and our hosts were very helpful with suggestions, but also allowed us the privacy we needed to fully enjoy ourselves. Also within close distance to beaches and other sights :)

Pros:
The bed was huge and felt like sleeping on a cloud. The gorgeous redwood interior of the private bedroom insulate you from all sound, giving you a deep sense of peace. The hot tub sits underneath a view of tall trees and you can hear so many different types of birds at dawn. The location was perfect for trips into Boulder Creek (walking distance) and Santa Cruz.

Cons:
Room is small (but very comfy) so don’t bring a bulky suitcase. Very few outlets in the room, none in the bathroom. Skylight is beautiful but the sun will wake you up in the morning as there was no shade for it.

Response from Gordon, the Host, on May 26th, 2022

HI Micah, Thanks for the recommendation and nice review. We appreciate it! I wanted to let you know that we typically have sleep masks on the nightstand right next to an extension cord for phone charging purposes. I'm afraid our cleaning staff missed making sure that was set up before your stay. We also have a luggage stand that is typically set up for our guests. I'm so glad you left the details in your review that you did so that I know to address it with her. This is the first year we have help with the cleaning (woooo hoooo) so it's a learning process. We hope we'll see you again during the warm season so you can enjoy the pool! Happy Hipcamping!

Sweet space

We loved staying here! The hosts were nice, responsive and accommodating. Loved the comfy bed, really loved the hot tub and being close to Henry Cowell State Park!

The room is off the hosts' kitchen/living area, so it isn't the most private/quiet. We didn't mind, and still found it peaceful and relaxing.

The fridge is very mini, and the coffee maker makes a lot of coffee. Nice to have a microwave for leftovers. This was a really sweet landing place for two people who love to spend the daylight hours outside.

Enjoyed our stay for 3 nights, waking up to coffee in the hot tub was heaven. Pack lightly as not much space to store things. One of the most comfortable beds I’ve slept in.

Response from Gordon, the Host, on September 8th, 2022

Thanks for the recommendation, Sharon! I am almost a year late in responding to your review. (busy with hosting duties and our "real jobs." But, we'd like to make you aware that we have added more surface areas to the room and put the folding luggage stand in a more obvious spot for guests to see. We hope to host you again in the future! Cheers!
