About this listing
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!
Be respectful of noise level for neighbors. No smoking. Respectful to dwelling as a whole.
Place was great. Very serene and private and just what we needed from a quick get away from our regularly scheduled lives. A special thanks to Vanessa so being accommodating with our very last minute request to rent her cottage!
We had an absolutely wonderful stay. The place was perfect. Clean, bright, airy, and very accommodating. Vanessa thought through every detail, from gaining access to feeling at home. I've never felt so at-ease while away from home. We will definitely come back!
I think we're just gonna move in!! This was our 3rd, yes 3rd visit to Vanesa's luxurious retreat. Hip, cool, well appointed…what's not love? This is where we go to completely unwind, and rejuvenate. Magical.
Vanessa and her husband made my stay wonderful. They are sensitive to strike the balance between privacy and social inclusion. The cottage was immaculate with easy access to the beach and downtown area. I've stayed there before and look forward to visiting them again. They gave suggestions and invited me to dinner and drinks with them and their friends. Bed was very comfortable, internet connection was strong, and cable and netflix were provided. Highly recommended.
My boyfriend and I just got back from a weekend at Vanessa's Santa Cruz cottage. What a great little spot! The cottage is in the back of her property and was perfect for two people. The pictures don't do it justice. It is very well decorated and put together! We loved everything about it! It also has a beautiful little garden and outdoor seating area. The only thing we didn't like about our stay was that we were woken up both nights by raccoons running on the roof and skylights! Hahah it didn't really bother us but it was a little startling. Overall though we loved Vanessa's home and would definitely stay there again!
This place was awesome! From the fresh sweet smelling sheets and towels to the beautiful patio to greet you as you come in. Walking distance to great little restaurants too. It was so relaxing, like you are in your own little world. We had a couple friends over from the area and they were surprised this little gem existed. We wil definitely be back!
