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

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.

This is a great house in a great location. They were very friendly and the bed was super comfortable. I'd love to stay there again next time I'm in town!
We had a wonderful stay with Valerie and Holly. Their home is a perfect place to stay with West Cliff, the light house and steamer lane only a short walk from the house. The second floor room and living room makes their place light and sunny. A 5 min walk gives you glorious sunsets over Monterrey bay. Thank you Valerie and Holly for making our stay so memorable!
We only stay one night with Holly and Valerie in Santa Cruz but we really enjoyed meeting them and staying at their house. They are very kind and really good hosts! They made a booklet with information about where to go and what to do during our stay. We really appreciate it! The house is really close to the beach and main attractions.
Valerie and Holly are amazing hostesses! They have sweet cats that didn't really pop up very much. We also didn't get to meet their daughter, but I could tell they're great parents! Valerie was very, very accommodating with our schedule, easy to talk to and communicate with. Her instructions were very clear and they're very lenient on their "house rules."
The room and house are super clean and cozy - exactly like the photos (unlike hotel websites)! My boyfriend and I were able to go in and out of the house without any awkwardness between us, and we had our fair share of privacy upstairs. They even have mugs for their guests in the kitchen, which we were also free to use. I wasn't feeling well one night, and they gave me an abundance of choices of teas to choose from. Moreover, they provided a booklet of things to do in the city, complete with the wifi info and remote for the TV. It was really blissful falling asleep to the sounds of the sea lions at night (and in the morning). The neighborhood is very nice, and super easy to find parking!
Great hostesses, great location, great accommodations. Absolutely wonderful stay and the best first experience with Air B n B that I could ask for! I would definitely recommend their place and I would look them up the next time we're in town.
Thanks again, ladies!
Comfy cozy perfect is definitely an accurate description! Valerie and Holly were wonderful hosts. I know where I want to stay on my next SC trip! Waking at night and hearing the sealions barking was just icing on the cake.
Valerie and Holly were wonderful hosts. They recommended an amazing Mexican restaurant and their home is within walking distance to downtown, the ocean, the pier and the boardwalk. Loved our stay and we would happily stay here again.
