If California were a mattress, it would be the Crystal Cove mattress from Brentwood Home. It exudes a laid-back aesthetic that is welcoming and stylish. This mattress gets its looks from the Crystal Cove Yoga collection which includes the yoga bolster pillow, pranayama pillow, and meditation pillow. This is the first mattress in their line that is not tufted. People looking for a smooth sleeping surface will enjoy this feel.

Ordering The Crystal Cove Mattress

This mattress is only available through Brentwood Home’s website. Since all of their mattresses are made on demand, it will take about a week and a half to arrive at your door. It will come in a box like the one below. I don’t really rave about boxes and of course they don’t affect the quality of the mattress but the quality of the box is an indicator that they pay attention to the details which will matter in a mattress.

Brentwood Home Box

This is what it looks like out of the box. This mattress is super heavy and also heavily compressed so extra wrapping needs to be done to keep it from coming loose in the box. A queen size weighs 128 lbs.

This picture was taken soon after opening the mattress. It springs to life quickly because it literally has springs. This is a mattress that you can sleep on a few hours after opening because there really isn’t that much foam in it.

Overview of the Crystal Cove Mattress

In the video below I show you the inside of the mattress. I am sitting on the plush side which has the charcoal-infused foam at the top. The firm side has a layer of Dunlop latex at the top. I don’t think there would ever be a reason to access the inside or take off the cover though.

This mattress comes with a 120-night trial where you can try it out in the comfort of your home and if you don’t like it, just contact them and they will facilitate an easy return. You do not have to pack it up and ship it back. Brentwood also offers a 25-year warranty. This company has been around much longer than most online brands and they are a mattress manufacturer that makes their own mattresses so you can have peace of mind that this company should be around for another 25 years to honor their warranty.

How is the Crystal Cove Mattress Made?

Here are the construction details of this mattress as listed on their website:

Artfully-designed, Functional Cover 
Removable and washable stitched gray cover with a beautiful, modern design.

2-Inch All Natural Latex Layer
Available in a medium feel, made with natural latex and free of synthetic ingredients. Our latex is made with the Dunlop process.

Density: 4.0lb/ft3, D: 65

1-inch Flow Foam
The other side of the mattress is topped with a plush layer of CertiPUR-US Certified Flow Foam that will conform to your body to provide perfect pressure relief and restorative sleep.

Density: 4.0lb/ft3, ILD: 12

2-inch Charcoal-infused Memory Foam
Just below the Flow Foam lies our innovative, naturally cooling, and plush Charcoal-infused Memory Foam. This Certi-PUR-US® certified memory foam is made without ozone depleters, PBDE flame retardants, mercury, lead, heavy metals, formaldehyde or phthalates.

Density: 4.0lb/ft3

8-inch Combi-Zone Coil Unit 
A layer of individually wrapped coils allows precise body contouring for optimal support. Reinforced coils in the lumbar region give your lower back the support it needs, and edge retention coils allow you to sit or sleep at the edges without rolling off. We choose isolated springs to reduce noise, motion transfer, and partner disturbance.

My Crystal Cove Findings

The videos below illustrate bounce and motion transfer on each side of the mattress. Both sides will have bounce due to the coil system in the middle. Here’s the plush side first. The plus side has charcoal infused foam. The charcoal can help with cooling and with flushing toxins out of the body. Whether or not that will happen underneat the cover of the mattress is uncertain but charcoal also can keep the mattress fresh which is a bonus over traditional foam.

Here’s’ the firm side. It has slightly more bounce because it has a layer of latex at the top. What you will notice is that you sort of float more on the firm side. Latex is instantly responsive to no waiting for it to adapt to your body and it is also easier to move around on than foam.

The video below shows you how each component of the mattress works.

My Crystal Cove Recommendation

There are so many choices out there when it comes to buying a mattress. It’s just overwhelming. So, here are 5 reasons you should be considering a Crystal Cove mattress.

  1. You aren’t sure what firmness will work for you or your firmness preferences fluctuate.
  2. You are looking for a luxury guest bed where you can offer your guests choice of firmness.
  3. You prefer a smooth sleeping surface.
  4. You aren’t sure if foam or latex is right for you.
  5. You like a natural mattress but also appreciate the benefits of foam.

In terms of overall feel. I really enjoy the plush side with the foam. It has a unique feel that will appeal to side sleepers. Stomach and back sleepers will probably prefer the firm side with latex. The stretch knit cover is stretchy enough to give you the full benefits of the layers underneath and the hand stitched handles on each side make flipping the mattress much easier.

This mattress will cost more than other brands but in this case you get what you pay for and more. You get two quality mattresses in one and all the craftsmanship and high-end design that comes from Brentwood Home. In my opinion, they are becoming a boutique luxury online mattress brand that has yet to meet their match.

  1. Thank you for your review.

    I recently got the Brentwood Home Cedar mattress. It is a bit too firm for me.

    How would you compare the latex side of the crystal cove to the cedar as far as firmness?

    1. Sleep Sherpa says:

      It’s definitely softer than the Cedar. I think the tufting on the Cedar is what makes it firmer.

  2. Benjamin Guyon says:

    How would you compare the plush side of the Crystal Cove vs the Ojai vs the Oceano using a rating scale of 10 being the softest? I would really appreciate your opinion and I will be using your code to order when I make my final decision. Thanks

    1. Sleep Sherpa says:

      They are very different mattresses. The Crystal Cove plush side will be softer than the Ojai. I would say the Crystal Cove Plush is about a 7.5 with 10 being the softest whereas the Ojai is about a 5.5

      1. Anonymous says:

        Also how does the feel differ between the Crystal Cove plush and the Oceano. Thanks.

        1. Sleep Sherpa says:

          The Oceano is tufted so you don’t sink into quite as much as the plush side of the Cyrstal Cove. I think if you want a mattress softer than the Oceano the soft side of the Crystal Cove would be the way to go.

  3. how do you compare the dreamcloud with the crystal cove? I’ve narrowed it down to those two. The dreamcloud seems more plush than the charcoal side of the crystal cove. but being able to flip the mattress and even remove the cover to wash it makes the crystal cove more appealing.

    1. Sleep Sherpa says:

      You get more “hug” with the DreamCloud but the Crystal Cove has two firmness levels. I would say if you want the ability to have different firmness levels and you don’t want to sink in too much, the Crystal Cove is the way to go

    Hi Sleep Sherpa,

    I just got the Crystal Cove mattress yesterday and I will say it is the best mattress I have ever slept on. I have tried over 12 mattresses over the last year and a half or so and this one wins easy hands down. You said that you would rate the plush side of the crystal cove a 7.5 out of 10, what would you rate the firm side. I am sleeping on the plush side and it is great. I do not want to flip the mattress since it’s already set. I got the Ojai replaced since I felt it was too firm and you rated the Ojai a 5.5 out of 10. I also used your coupon code. Thanks

      I am currently going through the process of returning my Crystal Cove mattress and found out from their customer service some helpful information about the firmness ratings of this mattress and several of the other Brentwood mattresses. The firm latex side is a 3 (I found it to be too firm even as a strict stomach sleeper). The plush side has a rating of 7 (had a bit too much sink for me and I had low back pain). The Cedar has a 5 rating (interesting because Sleep Sherpa mentions that he finds this one firmer than the Crystal Cove firm side). The Ojai has a 6 rating. I’m now waiting for the Ojai to arrive and praying it’s a good fit! 🙏

  5. Renee Hudson says:

    Im a side sleeper, 140 lbs, and I want as natural as possible. Im trying to decide between my green mattress natural escape, happsey, or the crystal cove. The crystal cove has the foam layer, but other certifications look ok. The healthy aspect is very important to me, but I keep learning toward the crystal cove. Any words of wisdom?

    1. Sleep Sherpa says:

      The Crystal Cove would be your best option as a side sleeper. The soft side of the Crystal Cove will provide the best contouring of the three.

  6. Thank you your reviews are helpful and they seem honest. Just ordered the Crystal Cove. We currently have a traditional Simmons and this is our first bed in a box mattress. We are both side sleepers and are not a big fan of all memory foam mattresses. We are hoping we made a good choice. I’ll keep you posted.

    1. How are you liking the Crystal Cove? I too have a Simmons and looking am looking to buy a new mattress.

  7. Judy Maupin says:

    Hi your site is very well done. How would the Crystal Cove compare to the Brooklyn Bedding Signature?

  8. Anonymous says:

    Is $300 more worth it for the king Oceano over the Crystal Cove? I’ve done a ton of research and think I have narrowed it down to the two. I like the fact that the Crystal Cover has two firmness levels, but once I determine which firmness side I like best I don’t plan on using the other side, so not sure that’s too beneficial. I’m a side sleeper who isn’t quite sure what firmness level I want. Probably more soft than firm. The Oceano has certainly had my eye for a while, until I came across the Crystal Cove recently. Now I can’t decide between the two. Thanks for all the research and info on your site! It’s been a great help.

    1. Teresa Toscano says:

      I was in the same predicament. I knew I was going to order from Brentwood Homes, but I had the hardest time deciding. The cost difference wasn’t that great between the 2 mattresses; however, ordered the Crystal Cove tonight. I figured I have 2 options with one mattress so one should be right for me. I’m a side and back sleeper. If for some reason it doesn’t work out I will buy the Oceano. Let us know what you decided to buy.

      1. Maria Patton says:

        Teresa, How do you like the Crystal Cove? Is it “too” firm or “too” soft? Any insight would be helpful as I am interested in purchasing it. Thanks!

  9. I am really liking reviews on both this mattress and the winkbed luxury firm. Any insights when comparing those two?
