About this listing
This is an upgraded 600 sq ft back house with sunny patio and yard on our property. We think it's a very serene and sweet little spot, and hope you do too!
We have an upgraded and lovely standalone, one bedroom unit on a quiet street in the Seabright neighborhood. This spot gives convenient access to the Harbor, Arana Gulch, Seabright, and mid-town restaurants & grocery stores. Large, private backyard gets sun all afternoon, and is usually 10 degrees warmer than the beach!
We have wireless internet, cable TV and DVD player, and CRUISER BIKES you can borrow for beach or grocery runs. The closest beaches are 1.5 miles away, either at the harbor or Seabright. Bikes are definitely the easiest travel mode on weekends or holidays!
There is a queen bed with a semi-firm mattress. Bed linens and towels are provided.
There is NO smoking of any type inside the house.
Downtown Santa Cruz is a 5 minute drive, 10 minute bike ride. Downtown Capitola is about a 10 minute drive. Beaches & bars are all easy drives or bike cruises.
This is a back house, it is a separate unit but located close to the main house. We live in the main house with our dog and have a separate yard space. Happy to answer any questions, speak over the phone, provide virtual tours, etc.
You will have the full back unit, patio and backyard: pretty much everything that is pictured. The shared space is the driveway and walkway into the house.
Interaction with Guests
We interact as much as you want! We live in the front house and anticipate giving you privacy. However, we'd love to meet you if you want to swing by and say hello :)
Other Things to Note
We love our fruit trees around the property, and you are welcome to anything that is fruiting: limes, lemons, plums, and avocados. Enjoy!
Treat it like your own! Please no smoking (of any type) inside the house.
Additional people (above the 2 guest limit) are $10 per day.
This is a quiet peaceful spot that was very comfortable. It is close to everything you would ever need.
Mary and Everet were excellent in every way.
The guest house is in a very beautiful and peaceful setting. The yard is really large and private. Exactly as pictured and perfect for a weekend getaway. We made use of the bikes to get to and from the beach which was a great thing to have available.
We had a great time. Thanks!
Neighborhood was very accessible, and the hosts provided exactly what was advertised and even a bit more which was very nice. The house was a very nice comfortable living space, set in a quiet neighborhood within 10 minutes of the beach, and very close to highway 1.
Mary was quick to respond to all of my emails and checked in with us during our stay. Everything was clean and well maintained in the apt. It is exactly as pictured, very cute and stylish. The kitchen is well equipped for a quick meal. It was nice having bicycles available. Bed and sofa were very comfortable. Thanks so much for your hospitality, we hope to come back to Santa Cruz soon.
Mary greeted us upon arrival. A bottle of wine as well as many condiments, seasonings
and oatmeal with raisins and coffe was left for us.
Our visit was really terrific. Honestly, the most comfortable and relaxing place we've ever ever stayed. They have thought of everything. All the little thoughtful details we really appreciated as out of town guests, made us feel welcome and right at home. Mary clearly thinks of what she herself would like if she were a guest.
The cottage is next to the house, but extremely private, and quite large inside. A new kitchen with basic furnishings, with some extra perks. The gardens are lovely, too (fresh lemons from the tree!).
Very highly recommended. We will surely come back.
amazing spot, very private, spacious, clean, tasteful! check in and out made very easy.
About the Host, Everet & Mary
We are an active and adventurous couple - we're out hiking, biking and camping most of our weekends! Mary is addicted to coffee, so rest assured she makes sure the place is always well stocked on caffeine :) We love living in Santa Cruz, and hope you'll enjoy your trip here.
