A short hike gets you to beautiful Vasona Lake Park and Oak Meadow Park where you or your kids can ride the Billy Jones Wildcat scaled down Rail Road, rent a paddle board, sail and peddle boat and enjoy the rare treat of our outdoor Oak Meadow Park Carousel. A few minutes away is Saint Josephs Hill trail for mountain biking, jogging and hiking. You can rent a high-end mountain bike at Summit Bike Shop a short walk away. A short car ride gets you to Castle Rock hiking and rock climbing in the Santa Cruz mountains, or Famous Santa Cruz Boardwalk, beach and wharf.
We are flexible and would like to rent to folks who respect property and treat this as their home, and leave it that way, but we're tolerant and know you want to relax and enjoy yourself so no fretting over a broken wine glass. We've had a few!
It's best to look me up on LinkedIn under Mike Calise, Electric Vehicle, Car Charging Group. I'm a cleantech exec with a passion for electric vehicle technologies and offering all guests an exceptional experience.
I mountain bike in the hills of Los Gatos, CA and travel the world for business, so I know the importance of excellent service. I grew up on "LonGisland", so I'm a New Yorker at heart, but prefer the SF Bay Area since it's the center of gravity for technology and the weather is near perfect with about 345 days of sun per year average in this ideal South Bay microclimate.
I am 110% committed to your satisfaction and take pride in my home guaranteeing all my guests rave about staying here.
