The space

This upstairs bedroom has easy access from the front entry and has its own private bathroom. The views are fabulous, looking across to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, the wharf, and the sailboats taking advantage of the ocean breezes.

A short walk down the hill takes you to the beach. Turn the other direction and take advantage of the spectacular walking and bike path along W. Cliff Drive to Natural Bridges Beach. Take a short 25 minute walk to downtown to access any of the 10 movie theaters and many wonderful restaurants.

Other things to note

We are required to collect Occupancy Tax from our guests at the rate of 11%. Since Airbnb does not have a mechanism for this in Santa Cruz, we have tried to modify their existing template to include the tax as a "Cleaning Fee". This will allow us to separate the tax from the overall cost of the rental. We understand Airbnb may be fixing this next year, and appreciate your understanding.

Clean, beautifully decorated, room in a perfect Santa Cruz location. Walk to the beach and restaurants. Great communication.

The location was excellent. Everything we needed was within walking distance. The set up at the house made it convenient to go in and out without feeling like we were intruding in the family. Our hosts went the extra mile to lend us some blankets to take for a picnic on the beach. Lastly, the room with the bathroom attached was wonderful.

The location is great. You can see the Bay from the bedroom window. The house is spacious. It is good value. The bed was on the small side and not the most comfortable. The pillows are very comfy. The bathroom feels modern and clean, and the host supplied many towel. The host provided coffee and privacy.

Kim and Mike were easy to communicate with and very flexible about my arrival (time kept changing because I was coming from work, about an hour away). The room and bed were comfortable and the location was fantastic- I could see the ocean from the window and heard the waves and sea lions faintly all night. Walkable to many beaches, the boardwalk and downtown. Would definitely stay here again!

Kim and Mike's place was absolutely charming. The view from the room was beautiful as well. We had originally wanted to stay in a hotel or private house, but when we got there, we felt that this room was actually better than most hotel rooms, and had just as much privacy, as the bathroom is private and en-suite. The location of the Airbnb was extremely convenient as well, as we were right on the beach and walking distance to the boardwalk. Overall, it was a great experience, and I would definitely stay there again.

Interaction with guests

We are in and out a lot and so the amount of interaction with guests is really dependent upon our schedules during the stay. We do our best to greet guests personally, but if this isn't possible, we communicate with them to make sure that they can settle in when they arrive. In general, we are pretty laissez-faire in our approach, but try are available by e-mail, phone or text to respond to guest needs.

About Kim And Mike

My husband and I and share this great house with our daughter who is a young adult and a single "boarder". My husband is Director of IT for one of the large divisions at UCSC, and I own my own company which provides commercial real estate development services for nonprofit organizations. I have an office in San Francisco and also work out of my home office in Santa Cruz a number of days per week.

We enjoy living in Santa Cruz with the beach across the street and the redwoods a short drive away. We appreciate the natural wonders every day and vow never to take them for granted.
