About Nestldown

Nestldown is a 180-acre property that was originally designed and developed for the owners and their family use, with the goal of offering a special space for the non-profits benefitting disadvantaged individuals or those in crisis and transition. We now offer a beautiful venue for all types of events, including weddings! It is a private family owned and operated property nestled among the redwoods in the Santa Cruz Mountains and surrounded by acres of carefully tended flower gardens and orchards. Nestldown is an especially beautiful escape from the everyday world.

We would love to offer you a guided tour of the facility by appointment. Please email us request@nestldown.com

    Nestldown was the BEST decision we made for our wedding day!

    First of all, the venue is stunning. If you have not seen it in person yet, I highly recommend that you check it out because it is even more beautiful than what the pictures can capture. When we went to see the venue for the first time and I heard the music from the speakers that are hidden throughout redwood trees, I fell in love with it immediately.

    Secondly, the Nestldown staff and their preferred vendors are extremely professional and great to work with. They help a TON with the planning process and made me to feel so at ease every step of the way. My wedding coordinator was Barbara Beck and she was amazing to work with! She is so sweet and incredibly organized. I felt like she genuinely cared about making sure our wedding day was all we had hoped for it to be!

    We got so many compliments from all of our guests about how beautiful the venue was and how perfect everything turned out! The entire day was better than we could have ever dreamed of! Thank you Nestldown!

    We absolutely loved our experience with Nestldown!!! Such a beautiful setting and fantastic atmosphere! Every person we dealt with from the tour to our wedding coordinator, Sophia, was absolutely amazing! The staff took so much pressure off the bride and groom and made every guest feel so welcome! We got married almost 2 years ago and people are still talking about how great our wedding was and Nestldown had so much to do with that wonderful memory!!
