Come enjoy quiet time in an old cottage recently gutted and remodeled with modern amenities just 6 blocks from the beach!
This charming one bedroom cottage has polished cement floors through-out, granite counter tops in kitchen and bathroom, gas stove in kitchen, huge open italian shower in bathroom, big walk-in closet and private outdoor space for patio dining, catching some rays or just relaxing with a book.
Guests should expect quiet evenings, bright, airy mornings with lots of light, plants and trees everywhere! A great location with public transit close and a very clean and well kept environment. Owners live in main house at the front of property but cottage has private patio and separate entryway for privacy in regards to both dwellings.
The cottage is located within walking distance to beautiful Santa Cruz beaches but also within walking distance to historic downtown or stay in the "Seabright" neighborhood and experience great restaurants and bars.
Have your breakfast one block away from the coveted "Buttery" bakery or make your own after having done your grocery shopping at "Shopper's Corner', (oldest and best epicerie / grocery store in town). really just 2 min by foot.
This charmer is great for one person or a couple. Come to the beach and hang your towel here!
We were so smitten by our first visit to the cottage, we booked it again for a birthday weekend get-a-way. Love it!
Great cottage close to everything! The cottage has a unique style and you feel
Like you're truly getting away.
Wonderful stay. Vanessa was a fantastic and accommodating host. The cottage is beautifully designed and very comfortable. Will be back!
Cosy and chic cottage for a couple-loved the layout and interior design. Vanessa has really considered guest requirements and everything for an easy and relaxed trip was provided. Easy walk to downtown, beaches. Would happily recommend this for a couple seeking a Santa Cruz getaway.
What a sweet, sweet find!!! Love the artistic, modern, cool, rustic vibe. So well thought out. Perfectly appointed with everything you need. The space is beautiful, welcoming, and very private.
Vanessa was friendly, prompt and communicative while planning our trip. And during our stay, she fully respected our privacy.
This is truly one of the best airbnb places I've stayed. If you like the photos, you will not be disappointed.
The cottage was very in excellent condition and definitely looks just as the photos portray it. The interior is modern and tasteful with all the essentials you would need for a stay. The small touches like rugs, a comfortable sofa, adirondack chairs outside and the modern bathroom really make this listing worth a trip to Santa Cruz. Vanessa was extremely welcoming but respectful of our space. The fencing along side of the house really provides a level of privacy which is nice during a weekend away. I'd highly recommend this listing if you are looking for a quiet cottage in a walkable location that is about a mile from the beach and 5 minutes from a handful of shops and cafes.
This is one of the best Airbnb places I've stayed at. Very well cool place, well decorated and designed and just around the corner from a great bakery/breakfast place. 5 stars for this place.
Vanessa is a wonderful hostess, most understanding, and ensured that we had the best stay possible. I love her cottage. I want a shower exactly like the one in the little cottage. The kitchen is well equipped. There is a wonderful fountain outside too. We slept with the windows open so we could hear its soothing splash during the night. The cottage is very private and the neighborhood is lovely. If I could give 6 stars, I would.
Vanessa's cottage was exactly as pictured (if not more charming in person). Adorably appointed, very clean, and set back far enough from the main house that it felt private. Although we didn't meet Vanessa, she was very responsive by email and everything was as she had described. Close to town and the beach, with easy parking on the street. Would recommend primarily for couples - the cottage is very open inside (glass and open doorways), so was a fairly intimate experience. All in all, an absolutely lovely place to stay!
Stay Here. It's beautifully decorated & wonderfully located to everything you need to have a great visit in Santa Cruz. I will return.
