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.
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.
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.
We'd like guests who are quiet(er), family-oriented and LBGT friendly. Must like kids and cats!

Holly, Valerie and Sage are a lovely family. They have a comfortable, beachy house in a great neighborhood, and two of the sweetest, most adorable cats I have ever met!
I felt very welcome and comfortable in their home. I loved hearing the sound of the ocean at night as I slept. A very quiet and peaceful household.
This was my second stay with Valerie and Holly, and it was as lovely the 2nd time as the first. Great location; responsive, friendly hosts; clean, welcoming space. If I'm lucky, I'll be back for another stay.
Everything went fine in Valerie and Holly's place. The room was comfy and clean.
They were quiet and respectful whith us. I would stay there again for sure!

Beautiful house near the the water in West Cliff, Santa Cruz. The room felt private and was perfect for the weekend. Bed was very comfortable. Great stay, recommend highly!
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!
