The Space

136 Younger Way is located atop Santa Cruz's Beach Hill, an easy downhill stroll to the Pacific Ocean, Main Beach volleyball courts, the historic Wharf and the famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Surfers and boogie boarders are just minutes away from Cowell’s (beginner waves) and Steamer Lane (expert waves). Explore downtown shops, restaurants and coffee shops which are easily accessible by a 3-5 minute leisurely peddle on a beach cruiser bike (free with rental), or a 10 minute walk. There are endless other recreational options in Santa Cruz County including mountain biking, hiking, sailing, kayaking and scenic trains through redwood forests.

The house is a completely renovated (2012) craftsman style home with two bedrooms, one bath, spacious dining and living rooms, and a beautiful new kitchen. Large, double hung windows throughout the house make it a bright and cheerful place for your vacation. One bedroom has a Queen Bed, the second bedroom has twin bunks and there is a pull out sofa bed in the living room.

There are two units on the property, the main house and a small studio cottage, also listed on AirBnB. If you need more space, consider renting both. This listing is for the main house only.

A newly completed 18' x 20' deck in the backyard features a pergola with outdoor lighting and heat lamps, along with an 8-person dining table and outdoor sectional sofa -- a perfect spot to enjoy an outdoor meal or dive into a book.

  • This house was perfect for us! We were visiting our kids at UCSC over the Thanksgiving holiday. I cooked a full meal for 12 people in the kitchen, which is very nicely equipped. The house interior is very updated -- brand new kitchen, and bathroom -- with a great tub! The back patio is lovely, an had fairly lights up, and plenty of seating for our constant visitors. The house is perfectly located -- in walking distance to everything, and with easy street parking for overflow of cars, would you need it.

  • What a great week we had at Chad, Jodi, Levi & Judah's Mulder home in Santa Cruz!.. The house is beautiful, very well kept, clean, and with everything you need to feel at home. We loved every bit of it. They have everything setup with clear instructions to make your stay hassle free. The backyard deck is great to relax and read a book or have breakfast outside. I've two boys: 7 & 8 yrs old, so this place could not have been better for them. Levi & Judah's bedroom was perfect with a bunk bed. The Mulder's even let you use their kids' toys and board games and their beach cruiser bicycles. So we enjoyed some quality time with the kids playing together "chutes & ladders" as well as a nice bike ride. Location is great too. The Beach Hill neighborhood is charming and peaceful. My wife walked everywhere. The Boardwalk, West Cliff and downtown area are 5 mins away. This is a much better option for a family than any hotel or resort! Highly recommend. Thanks Jodi!!

We moved to Santa Cruz in July 2011 from Chicago. It's been quite a culture shift; but we love it, we love the relaxed and friendly culture of Santa Cruz, we really think there's no place like it and we have traveled all over the world. We've been married 16 years and love sharing new experiences We've traveled to 41 countries together and have a passion for social justice issues; both globally and locally. Chad is currently pursuing a socially minded start up company focused on job creation in Rwanda and Jodi works as a psychotherapist at UCSC's Counseling & Psychological Services. Our boys love living in Santa Cruz; playing at the beach, soccer at Depot Park, or riding their scooters at the Bike Park.
