Sunny Backhouse Private Room Beach

House - Private room · Cayuga Street, Santa Cruz, CA 95062, United States

The Space

I am renting out a nice sized room in our back house. It has been newly remodeled and is a great place to stay while enjoying the beach and sun in Santa Cruz! We are just 10 minutes walking distance from Seabright beach, the Harbor, the Boardwalk, Downtown, the Wharf, the San Lorenzo River, Twin Lakes Beach, Whole Foods, Staff of life, the Buttery (Only the best bakery in town) and numerous great restaurants, bars, coffee shops just 5 minutes by feet or 2 minutes by bike.

Some great places to eat near by: The Seabright Brewery, The Seabreeze Cafe, Java Junction, the Crepe Place, the Crow's Nest, Betty's Burgers, La Posta, Engfer Pizza Works, Lilian's, Charlie Hong-Kong's, The Bagelry, and many more to choose from.

The room has it's own private entry seperate from the main house, a great queen sized bed, Down pillows and comforter, and deluxe 500 thread count 100% cotton sheets. There is brand new furniture, a great sized closet with hangers for all of your clothes, brand new bamboo floors. There is wi-fi access all over the house, and a small space heater if needed.

The bathroom is located in the main house, and will be primarily dedicated to the renters from airbnb. It is vintage and has a great claw-foot tub, so if you like a good soak, this is opportunity to relax and enjoy! We get great water pressure, we have a soft water system in the house, and filtered water on tap in the kitchen.

I would allow minimum kitchen usage as long as the renters clean up after themselves. i.e. coffee, breakfast, etc...

We have a great washer and dryer, and is also available for use as well.

**I have 1 Beach Cruiser Bike which I would allow for use**

Please send me any questions that you might have!!

Thank you for looking at my spot, we are really excited to welcome visitors!

Guest Access

Our guests have full access to their private detached room, with a private entry and a back entryway from the driveway. They also essentially will have the bathroom pictured to themselves, as we live upstairs and use our bathroom there. There is also the dining zone on the patio, an alley way entrance, a yoga room, living room, and dining room.

The Neighborhood

We live in my favorite neighborhood in Santa Cruz! We are just walking minutes from the beach, and the harbor, cute restaurants coffee shops, and even a climbing gym! We are in one of the oldest neighborhoods in Santa Cruz, and just walking around and looking at all of the cute colorful Beach Cottages is like going back in time. Most of these homes including our own wer build at the turn of the 20th century, some even before, so it's quite a treat to be around all of this beauty and history just minutes from the ocean.

Getting around

Walking is great, bike riding, and buses are all really accessible. You can walk to a great coffee shop in 5 minutes, and to numerous restaurants, or hop on the bus to another part of town on Seabright Ave, or Soquel Ave. There is a bike shop close by where you could rent bikes if needed for an adventure.

Other Things to Note

You will truly love staying in the perfect part of Santa Cruz, where you can hear the waves crashing at night, but far enough away that the barking of the sea-lions won't get on your nerves ;)

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had an awesome time at Stephanies place. We stayed in Santa Cruz over the weekend for surfing. I was our second time in SC but still Stepahnie had a lot of good tips for us, where can get good food, coffee and recommended us places to go out at night. The area where her house is really nice and peaceful. We are really happy that we have chosen this place and it won´t be the last time.

    Cheers Max and Tom

  • Loved it! After I booked the room, something came up with my work and had to change the schedule. I probably messaged her more than 10 times and kept changing my mind/schedule, and yet Stephanie was so nice and very accommodating. Of course, the room was as seen on the photos -- very clean and inviting (as well as other part of the house on the first floor)! The private entry was a nice bonus too. And the location of the house is so convenient that everything was less than 10 minutes by car! Overall, we had a great time staying here!

  • Nice place with really helpful and open hosts.

  • Stephanie and Christiano were very welcoming hosts and provided a great experience for our stay in Santa Cruz. Their home is in a great location for doing activities downtown and around Santa Cruz.

  • Stephanie was super welcoming and the place is just as cute and nice as it looks in the photos. Even though the bathroom is in the house, we felt very comfortable going in to use it, and using the kitchen to make tea, etc.

    There's some cool spots in the neighborhood within walking distance, too.

    We would def stay here again.

  • Great stay! Stephanie and Cristiano were great hosts; very welcoming and always available if I needed something. The location was ideal as it was safe, clean and close to Seabright, Santa Cruz harbor and a short walk to the beach/boardwalk. I highly recommend staying with this warm, well-travelled and hospitable couple.

  • My boyfriend and I stayed with Stephanie and her husband, Chris, for three awesome nights. We had our own separate space with private entrance and access to their downstairs bathroom (which is exclusively for guests) and they offered full use of their kitchen to us. Even better, Stephanie offered their yoga-sunroom where we were able to keep up with our yoga and meditation. They were so accommodating courteous, and never interfered with our autonomy. We even got to know them enough to know their wonderfully free and generous souls. I highly recommend staying with them. We're happy to say that we have both hosts and friends to stay with for future relaxing Santa Cruz experiences. VERY close to restaurants and the beach. 10/10. Namaste,
    Stephane and Chris!

Fashion Designer, Artist, Dancer
I am a Dancer, Fashion Designer, Artist, that was living in Salvador Brazil for the last 4 years, and just moved back to Santa Cruz, after 10 years of wandering around. In Brazil I spend most of my time in dance classes, rehearsals, workshops or out at dance performances, music events, surfing, or at home designing clothing in my studio. I met my husband Cristiano there, and he moved to California with me to experience life here. We just acquired this house, which is a definite fixer-upper, but we are making our way through the projects one after another. We are very accommodating to our guests, and have had many guests stay with us in our home in Salvador, as you will see all of the reviews we got :) I hope that you will enjoy our place here in the beautiful Santa Cruz!!!
