The space
Welcome to our lovely private guest suite, with a private entrance! We're perched on a hill above the Monterey Bay where you can hear the waves pounding at night, about a mile away as the crow flies. It is a 4-minute drive to the beach.

We offer a free pass to the local state parks and state beaches*. The state parks and state beaches pass saves you a $10 parking fee at all state parks and beaches and can be used as often as you want during your stay.

Your room is the deluxe master suite on the main level -- very spacious (291 square feet) with abundant light, high vaulted ceilings and skylights, recessed lighting, an Anderson sliding door to a private deck with a view of nature, trees and foliage, and a beautiful private ensuite bathroom with shower and hand-painted Italian tile. You have your own 50" high-definition TV with Video On Demand and Dish Network. Includes Apple TV, Netflix, YouTube and Amazon Prime Video. Very fast wi-fi internet speeds through AT&T fiber optic cable.

The private guest suite also has a desk and chair with a power strip for your laptop and charging needs. The queen adjustable bed with remote control has a massage setting for relaxing after a long day sightseeing.

We have central air conditioning, a rarity in Santa Cruz. It's great for warm weather and heat waves!

We'll provide you with beach chairs, beach towels, and beach umbrellas in the closet. The closest beach is Manresa State Beach, which is a 1.5 mile drive that takes 4 minutes by car. Get in for free with our Golden Poppy state parks and state beaches pass (save $10 entrance fee).

There are no shared spaces with the hosts, who live in the house.

*State Parks & Beaches: Manresa State Beach at the bottom of the hill, a 1.5 mile drive that takes 7 minutes. There is also Seacliff State Beach, Natural Bridges State Beach, New Brighton State Beach, Point Lobos State Natural Reserve, Año Nuevo State Park (elephant seals), Big Basin Redwoods State Park, Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, Wilder Ranch State Park, Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park in Big Sur, Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, Andrew Molera State Park in Big Sur, the beautiful state beaches north of Santa Cruz, and others.

Where you’ll be

La Selva Beach, California, United States

Quiet, tranquil neighborhood with natural beauty. We are on a quiet cul-de-sac (road with no outlet) so there is almost no traffic. We're on over 1/3 acre that is beautifully landscaped and has oaks and pines. The town just 3-4 miles north of us is Aptos, which has cafes, several restaurants, grocery stores, and more, including Seascape Beach Resort (restaurants and shops) and Seacliff State Beach. Manresa State Beach is at the bottom of our hill (1.5 mile, 4-minute drive).

You will be in our guest suite with private entrance in our home while we are at home. There are no shared spaces. Reviews up to March 2020 are for when we shared our house with our guests and there were shared spaces.
