My partner and I had such a great time our first stay at Sam N Alex that we decided to come back for working vacation after a particularly stressful week! Would recommend for folks in the Bay Area who want a restful retreat which feels further away than it actually is :)

Nice private room + hot tub
Had a great time staying at Sam n Alex over a rainy weekend. The hot tub is private and very accessible, and the property is surrounded by trees. It is beautiful in the Santa Cruz mountains! There were also some restaurants in walking distance; I particularly liked Treehouse Cafe and Tae’s Edo Sushi. Would recommend and visit again!

Cozy hideaway near Santa Cruz
Roni & Gordon's place "Sam & Alex" was a great place for us to have a weekend getaway in the Santa Cruz area. The place was really cozy, they thought of everything to make us comfortable. We even used the hot tub, and outdoor fireplace. They are super accommodating, warm, welcoming and were very responsive to anything we may have asked for. Boulder Creek is a really great little town, and we explored Ben Lomond and Felton too, while having close access to the beach in Santa Cruz. I highly recommend staying at "Sam & Alex" and staying with Roni & Gordon!

This was a great over night spot for me. I was in town for a concert and it was nice to hang out by the pool before hand. The grass for my tent was quite comfortable and the bathroom and shower were just fine despite a couple of the reviews on here. It is camping after all and I got a spot at the last minute too. Try doing that at the state park just down the road!

Hi! We had a very nice time at Gordon’s land. I may have misread and misunderstood it was a detached cabin. It’s actually a lovely, vintage style bedroom w/bathroom & shower, fridge, microwave & private entrance—The essentials for a wknd getaway. The hot tub is perfect for two, however the patio could offer more privacy from the main unit’s patio. Thank you for the thoughtful additions: sleep masks, cold water, craft beer purchase, popcorn, towels, etc. Being such a warm wknd, we would have appreciated an additional fan. Thank you so much! ~Olivia
