We have a quiet and empty nest since our two grown daughters moved out. We occasionally fill it with gentle, relaxing music, ether recorded or live as we are avid musicians, but never too loudly.

The house is set in restful, serene and retreat-like, Californian suburbia. Both the redwoods and ocean are minutes away. Scotts Valley provides basic shopping and entertainment but Santa Cruz, a bigger city, offers more. We have the best of both worlds.

Lo spazio
The bedroom is on the ground floor and has a full-size bed (sleeps two adults) and a spacious closet. The flooring is hardwood. The full bath on the upper floor and half bath on the ground floor are fully available to guests. (For the benefit of non-Americans, a half bath means it has no shower or bathtub). An additional full bath in the host's master bedroom on the ground floor may be used on request if necessary.

Breakfast is not served though there is coffee, tea, hot chocolate and drinking water.

It is not the Ritz Carlton but it is comfortable and we keep prices low with no frills. Things are laid back and down-to-earth here. Do remember this is not a hotel or motel; it is a home in which somebody live day to day.

Dove ti troverai

Scotts Valley, California, Stati Uniti

The neighborhood is usually quiet. Some neighbors habitually take walks throughout the day but mostly in the late afternoon/early evening just before sunset. They are usually quiet but are friendly and courteous and most will greet or return greetings. Traffic is minimal and by local residents and visitors only. Due to our secluded location, there is never any through traffic, except during the Christmas period when most residents here put up festive, colorful lights on their houses. Over the years this has become somewhat of a competitive obsession in this neighborhood and it has attracted many viewers who drive through to enjoy the sights. They usually drive very slowly and there has never been a problem. This is probably the only time when the neighborhood gets any through traffic. This is a very safe neighborhood.

Most of my friends call me Slim on account of the name Steve Lim. You're welcome to call me either. I'm a recently retired software engineer; worked in silicon valley in the field of electronic design automation for 27 years. My home is an empty nest since my two grown daughters moved out. We have a four-bedroom house with two and a half baths. Three rooms are now vacant. I now spend my time on home DIY projects and landscaping, playing, composing, and teaching music, and doing some art. I live in a friendly and quiet mature neighborhood on the summit of a little knoll. There is plenty of green with lots of trees, flowering shrubs and lawn. Our neighbors are friendly and we look out for one another, making it a safe and happy place. Traffic is mainly local residents; there is no through traffic. My home is two minutes from Scotts Valley town center where there are many stores and restaurants - Safeway, Nob Hill, Kmart, Walgreens, CVS/Pharmacy, ACE Hardware, Dollar Tree, and fast-food restaurants (all the usual ones, most of which have drive-thru lanes) and coffee shops Starbucks, Pete's, and our own local Coffee Cat. There are at least two Chinese, three Japanese, one Thai and three Mexican restaurants and several 'American-fare' places (burgers, steaks, pancakes, pasta, vegetarian, etc) notably Heavenly Roadside Cafe, Aunt Mame's, and Mollie's Cafe. There are no fewer than seven gas stations. Also here in Scotts Valley are CineLux Theatres (12 screens with cafe and lounge), Wells Fargo, Chase, Bank of America, Los Pollos (Mexican restaurant specializing in chicken), Baskin Robbins, Jamba Juice, Winchester Auto, O'Reilly Auto, Skip's Tires, and Integrity Automotive. So this (population 11,580) is a big little small town. We are minutes from downtown Santa Cruz or the beach, minutes from the redwoods in the Santa Cruz mountain range, and 20-30 minutes from Silicon Valley, literally best of all worlds.

Durante il tuo soggiorno

The host is Steve Lim, which is me. Due to the name, most of my friends call me Slim. I am pretty much used to it by now, so you may call me Slim. And you may notice I am that.

I grew up in Singapore, went to college in the U.K. to study electronic engineering in 1984, worked in England for two years after graduating, was then hired by an American company who relocated me to the US in 1992 and I've been here ever since. Singapore is not part of China as commonly mistaken but was a British colony set in tropical Southeast Asia in the neighborhood of Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, becoming independent in 1959. You might detect a very slight British accent but it is primarily Singaporean.

I give my guests space and leave them alone. If I am needed and not available, call or text message my ph(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). I never feel interrupted, so do not hesitate to call/text, especially if it is urgent.

My wife spends a lot of time sleeping over at my youngest daughter's place near the Santa Cruz harbor. They behave like a pair of teenage friends - BFFs - I believe that's what they're called though this may show my being not up-to-date with the parlance.

I am now a freelance artist and musician and spend most of my time doing art projects or playing, composing, or teaching music. Occasionally, I may have students in the house during the day but be assured we keep the noise low. You will notice a wide selection of musical instruments - piano, electronic keyboard, acoustic and electric guitars, mandolins, violin, ukuleles, djembes, and even a full drum kit in the garage. Feel free to play any of them.
