Our comfortable room is a 3 minute walk to the beach! We are located on a quiet, neighborhood street in the Lighthouse neighborhood of Westside Santa Cruz. The room is private, on the upstairs floor our nice beach house home, and has it's own private bathroom. LGBT friendly.

The Space

We are two local educators with a 12 year old daughter and two cats. We welcome professionals, LGBT travelers and other educators who want to get nerdy! West Cliff drive, one of the most scenic drives in California, is a 3 minute walk down the street.

Guest Access

Guests can have access to the kitchen and living room to hang out, the kitchen patio and BBQ, and the back yard if they wish. Also available are the washer & dryer. Our guest room and bathroom are on the upstairs level with the kitchen and living room, and our family bedrooms are on the bottom level.

Interaction with Guests

We will be present during the guests' stay, but leave early in the morning for school and arrive home at all different times of the day or evening, depending on our schedules. This is a family home with a middle school student, so we may be doing homework or other activities while guests are here, or just hanging out in the living room with the cats.

Other Things to Note

We are only a few miles from U.C. Santa Cruz.

  • Valerie and Holly are friendly and welcoming hosts. Their house is very nice, comfortable and well located (5 minutes walk to the boardwalk) in a quite and pleasant area.

    Valerie et Holly sont des hôtes très sympatiques et accueillantes. Leur maison est très jolie et confortable. Elle est par ailleurs très bien située à 5 minutes à pieds du boardwalk et dans un quartier calme et agréable.

  • My mother was very happy staying three nights at Valerie's and Holly's house. Her room was tastefully furnished, tidy, clean and very quiet. She felt equally welcome and at ease during her stay, and she would recommend this place without any reservation.

  • Valerie and Holly Are Great hosts and have a beautiful home. They are very relaxed what made us feel at home. They Even organised a Gate for the Safety of our baby. Highly recommended!

  • Valerie and Holly were excellent, accommodating hosts. They have a beautiful, comfortable home only a short walk from a stunning cliff-side trail along the ocean. The bedroom and bathroom, which were on a different floor from the family's sleeping quarters, afforded just the right amount of privacy. I really appreciated that they went out of their way to put a fan in the room during an uncharacteristically warm spell while I visited. I definitely hope to return!

  • We had a very brief stay at Holly&Valerie which went really well.
    We only met Valerie, who is very welcoming and easy-going. She made us feel very comfortable. Their place is super cozy and homey!

  • My sister and I were traveling down the coast and needed a place to stay. Val and Hollys home was puuurrrrrfect. Literally! The kittens were fun. We enjoyed spending sometime in the evening talking with Holly. They are a really cool and down to earth couple. Their house is gorgeous, it feels very cozy. You have a private bedroom and bathroom which is very nice. The water pressure on their shower is freaking awesome. My hair has never been so clean. The location was perfect. It was a three minute walk from the beach as promised. We walked 2 miles down to the natural bridges. The real estate was lovely to look at too. We imagined getting to actually live in one of those homes! The neighborhood as very safe and quiet. I would highly recommend staying with them. The morning fuel was a kehrig coffee pot and luna bars. Perfect start to a great day and there was no rush to get out of the home for the next customers.

  • Holly snd Valerie are lovely hosts, accommodating and friendly. Their home is spacious and comfortable in a quiet neighborhood. It was home from home in great location.

  • Great home. Valerie and Holly were wonderful hosts. Room was large and only blocks from amazing surf. Thank you!

  • Thank you, Valerie and Holly, for having me stay. I felt so welcome and peaceful in your home. The room (comfy bed + TV on demand) and own bath were perfectly appointed. And given that the guest room is upstairs, while your bedrooms are downstairs, I felt the place offered the right amount of privacy for both parties. The location is unbeatable; just a short walk to the end of your street and you're at the beach with the surfers, hippies, and dog lovers. Lucky you and me!

    Perfect way to revisit Santa Cruz after 20 years. I would love to stay with you again. You are a lovely couple, and I could see how devoted you are to your daughter. Full of love.

I am a middle school principal (Valerie) in Santa Cruz, and my wife Holly is fabulous history teacher over the hill. We are both passionate about education, traveling and reading - and so is our 12 year old daughter. We generally work hard, and play hard. We love skiing and good wine, especially with good friends! Staying active and engaged in life is key. We're excited to welcome guests into our comfy home in Santa Cruz, and also travel and meet new people!
