This bottom floor apartment is located on a very quiet street so during the day you can hear the birds singing while at the night you can hear the crash of the ocean and the sea lions barking at the moon.

The Space

This private bottom floor bedroom, bathroom and sitting area is perfect for a weekend getaway. Has a separate entrance from the top apartment. Located on a private quiet street and a short walk to Sunny Cove and Twin Lakes Beach and several restaurants.

This downstairs apartment has a private entrance and a comfortable queen bed as well as a fold out bed in the sitting room. There is a small kitchenette area which includes a small convection oven, mini refrigerator, and microwave. There is a private deck with an outdoor covered eating area.

Looking forward to meeting our guests!

Guest Access

You will have access to the downstairs apartment. The bottom floor has two bedrooms and one bathroom. One room has a real Queen Bed while the other room has a trundle style bed which is a full size. This bed is 5' 10" long.

The Neighborhood

This is a very quiet street so during the day you can heard the birds singing while at the night you can hear the crash of the ocean and the sea lions barking at the moon.

Please keep in mind that while you are close to two very nice beaches it is a rather long walk to downtown. I ride my bike there all the time and the drive usually takes 10 to 15 minutes depending on traffic.

Getting around

There is a bus stop a couple of block away at East Cliff which is the first road you come to.

Other Things to Note

Please park on my driveway on the very right as you a facing the house. The driveway is steep. There is only room for a maximum of one vehicle.

  • Paul's place was wonderful. It was quiet, clean, neat and airy. One bed was a couch but had a comfortable mattress. It was very well situated for the activities my niece and I were doing and we would recommend this place.

  • *Note to all* THIS IS NOT A 2 BEDROOM SPACE!! I sent a letter of complaint to airbnb and they stated that they will notify the host to change the description to 1 bedroom. There is one legitimate bedroom. The other so-called bedroom is actually a foldout couch in the sitting/living room in which the kitchen is also located in. There is no TV in the sitting/living room. The only TV is in the bedroom. The kitchen cabinets and shelves consist of cheap, unpainted plywood. Silverware and cups are very limited. No paper towels. No dishwasher. Seating is very limited in the sitting/living room. However, there is a nice space outside in the back. There's a nice deck with a nice garden. There's a hot tub that we were told doesn't work. Very quiet, clean neighborhood. The ocean is not visible from the property and I couldn't hear any waves crashing on the beach. The driveway is a very steep decline down to the house, so if you have ambulatory problems you may not be able to get to the house!! No stairs. All being said, we still enjoyed our stay and I would still recommend the place in spite of my complaints. A little truth in advertizing would go a long way.

    Response from Paul:

    Sorry for the inconvenience. Yes I have changed the listing to only show 1 room and no deceit was intended. The house is a three bedroom two bath and the bottom floor has the two bedrooms one bath. The bottom floor was converted into a private apartment. The hot tub is not listed or checked nor is there a picture of it and sorry but is not provided to the guests and it is actually broken. You do not hear waves every night but on most nights I hear waves but you also have to have the window open. Actually I don't usually allow parties and moving forward they will not be allowed. The driveway is steep but short. This is not a full kitchen hence not checked on AirBnB and it is specified as a kitchenette in the listing which has a Microwave, mini Frig and Convection Oven.

  • Paul is very attentive and friendly, and try to help us in every step. Apartment have a nice locations - near two cosy beach on quite street. We were traveling with small child (5 years) and in our case accommodations was not so suitable as we think - so actually it is one bedroom flat without expected staff - as a plates and cups (we have to ask even forks and spoons). Where were no lining for sofa - so we have only one bed. I think that this place more suit for young couple who are ready to eat only in restaurant or by frozen pizza.

    Response from Paul:

    Respectively I do appreciate your feedback and have changed the room from two bedrooms to one bedroom. I did want to point out the reservation was made for two people not three and linens would have been setup and/or provided. I do apologize for the any inconvenience this may have caused. Paul

  • Paul was a great host, very attentive and helpful. The space was lovely, clean and spacious, very close to the beach and great little restaurants (and a little sunday morning farmers market). We will definitely look this place up when we come back to Santa Cruz!

  • Paul's place was the perfect getaway. The place was clean, welcoming and extremely comfortable. We walked to the Crows Nest right on the beach within 15 minutes from his place - just perfect. Thanks for an awesome place to getaway from the city!!

  • Perfect place to stay if you want to be between Capitola and Sant Cruz. Easy, clean, simple. Paul was very quick to answer questions and very hospitable.

    Response from Paul:

    No I do not have a cat or dog. I do have some fish.

    I saw the dust on the blinds and have washed them. Sorry about that.

  • What a wonderful place! We came out for a wedding at Chaminade and it fit our needs perfectly. It was spacious and had all the amenities. I slept on the sofa bed - and have zero complaints! Paul was an excellent host and we would love to come back for another visit! We highly recommend this little beach rental.

  • Paul's place is simple, but cozy. He does a good job with the space that he has.

    The TV had a newly bought Chromecast and HDMI outputs. The "kitchenette" had a microwave, coffee maker, convection oven and mini-fridge.

    I was able to work outside on the porch(es) and still get fairly decent wi-fi, which was a nice bonus.

    It's a short walk to several things, including Aloha Grille, a fun Hawaiian restaurant.

    Though I didn't get to meet Paul, he was easily accessible through text and responded quickly, which was appreciated.

  • We had a great time in this apartment. Paul supplied everything we needed for our stay and was very helpful. It's a perfect place to stay if you don't want to be right in the middle of the Santa Cruz beach crowds.
