About Daniel Jadick
I am a city boy from New York. I moved to California in 1976. I've lived in San Diego, Orange County and Santa Cruz. Kathy is from Detroit. She has lived in Napa and Santa Cruz California. We welcomed our first Villa Soquel guests last June (2012) and wow has the Villa become a popular destination! Rest assured that you will feel very welcomed and comfortable should you decide to stay at our charming and relaxing Soquel Villa in the Santa Cruz Mountains! If you are a host in the Santa Cruz area, please feel free to refer to our Villa when your place is booked. Thanks!
Daniel Jadick purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Daniel Jadick chose Soquel
We have lived in several locations in Santa Cruz county since 1985. Mostly close to the beaches. The Soquel Villa mountain property is by far the best. It's close to town, but when you are outside on the deck, you do not see another home. No traffic, plenty of parking areas. RV's can park here! Private trails to walk off a big meal or to meditate on the property. Soquel is not a big city or town. Mostly restaurants and antique stores here. Short drive to bathing and surfing beaches of Santa Cruz.
What makes this Villa unique
The trees! The birds! The privacy! The long view down to the Monterey Bay. Above the fog line. We have sun when the beaches are fogged in. The house is beautiful, warm, user friendly and is highly rated.
Minimum age of primary renter:25
Max guests:8 (sleeps up to 8 adults)
100% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.
Beautiful house in the trees
Our family spent the Thanksgiving holiday at this great house in Soquel, tucked up high on a hill amongst the trees. We had a great time here and would definitely come back. The house was spacious enough for the whole family to spread out. The house was well stocked with everything we needed and everything was well-labeled. Our host even set out various casserole dishes and roasting pans for our turkey dinner! In terms of activities, the pool and hot tub were great, as well as the Xbox & Wii. The village of Soquel is very quaint and we enjoyed the local Ugly Mug coffee place and a tour and wine tasting at the Bargetto winery as well.
My New Favorite
Living in the busiest part of silicon valley, we are running out of ideas for a nice weekend escape. Hotels are boring, small and expensive. I'm so happy to find Soquel villa, which is only 45 mins' of our home but brings us so close to the nature. Both of our girls had a great time during the stay. The house provides a lot of activities that kept them busy enough. My older one learned how to play chess during the stay! Originally we planned to spend one day at the beach but ended up staying at the villa most of the time. Girls had the opportunity painting with early morning fresh air while I enjoy tea and view. My parents who also came along loved the massage chair and hot spa most. It was really unfortunate that my husband got sick before the trip therefore he slept through the trip. This gives us another excuse to come back. :-)
Beautiful family vacation
Villa Soquel was perfect for our family get-away. Daniel was an attentive host and made sure we had everything we needed. The house, its amenities, and the overall experience was top notch. We would heartily recommend Villa Soquel for a family vacation.
peaceful, comfortable, family friendly, and great attention to detail
The Villa Sequel was really an amazing find and we consider ourselves lucky to have celebrated New Year's Eve with our friends and family in such a comfortable and peaceful place. It's off the beaten track, but close to Santa Cruz and Capitola, with plenty of redwoods. The house is well-decorated with plenty of curios, but still safe for toddlers and babies. The electronic drum kit, keyboard, pingpong table, and chess kept the kids and dads busy while the moms enjoyed wine. The TV and sound system were great, and the office/living room was set up so that some of us got a little work done, as well. I will also mention that the beds were all very clean and new with heaters. There was also a massage chair that was my personal favorite feature. The kitchen was stocked with food and cooking utensils of better quality than any other rental house we've had.
I would also be neglectful if I did not mention Daniel, the owner's, personal attention in ensuring our comfort. He lived up to his word in all aspects of the rental transaction. He prides himself on a reputation of quality, and personally checked in with us to make sure everything was well during and after our visit. We were very happy for the opportunity to stay in this remarkable place and would recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful escape in the hills near the ocean.
The location and Villa were beautiful, comfortable and relaxing.
This was actually our family's first experience of renting a vacation home. And I'm thankful to say, it was a wonderful experience. Daniel is both kind and personable. From the point of reserving the home to the time of checking out, Daniel was available and responded to any questions we had. The Villa is nestled among several trees. Spending time there provided a sense of being "away from it all"; yet it's a fairly short dive to strores and activities. The Villa was well appointed; everything we needed was provided. The beds and bedding were quality and comfortable. From the board games, ping-pong, hiking trail, pool and hot tub, there was no shortage of things to do. Our family enjoyed our week away and the Villa was a special place to be in order to relax and reconnect.
