About Joe Giusti
We live in the main house and welcome guests to stay in our cottage. My dad left the house to us when he passed and we have poured our hearts into this place. We recently transitioned from the Sacramento area to full time residence in the Santa Cruz mountains. We have tried to make it a place of peace, serenity and love. Our sincere hope is that people will come and feel the same way we do.
Joe Giusti purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Joe Giusti chose Scotts Valley
This is an amazing place....the house sits on 50 acres of forest in the Scotts Valley area. You can step out the door into the orchard or hike to the top of the mountain. It's quiet with many of the amenities of home yet close to town and family-friendly entertainment. It's the perfect place to get away and de-stress.
What makes this Cottage unique
Close to town and boutique wineries, 10 minutes to the beach boardwalk. Winters are cozy by the fire, great for snuggling or watching dvd's. Summer sun streams through the skylights making the house bright and airy.

Thank you Joe so much for such a lovely stay. Hummingbirds everywhere, a cozy cottage, and completely quiet in the woods. Couldn't have asked for a better host, or a better stay.
Peace and Beauty in the Redwoods
This relaxing slice of redwood heaven was exactly as described, and even more interesting than the photos. The owners were caring but not overly so. Lucky to have found such a comfortable place so close to Pasatiempo, San Jose and Monterey. Took an hour to get to parking in Carmel for the US Open at Pebble Beach. First drive to Joe's place was a little daunting, but I love adventure. Easy once you know the obvious landmarks and excellent directions. No cell service but internet and all the channels on 3 nice TVs. I would do it again in a heartbeat. I only gave 4 stars on communication because I probably didn't see the note about a small extra charge for extra people.
Quiet and peaceful getaway
Just what I needed- surrounded by trees, off the beaten path, but close enough to town to get anything I needed. Joe was very friendly and welcoming!
Nestled in the trees
I needed a restful get away and that's exactly what this was.
Loved the location, the comfortable charm of this cottage. Owner Frannie is very helpful and went out of her way to be so.
Presious spot in the redwods
We were two couples on our way to a meditation retreat. This lovely spot in redwoods was just the transition tonic that we needed. Cozy bedrooms, warmly furnished. Nice living room space and dining table, Outside dining under the trees was heavenly. Close to some lovely parks with huge redwood tree nearby, Delightful to be so deep in the woods and close to any needed shopping.
Joe was a fabulous host. Generous, friendly and available when needed.
