The space

Separate, stand alone carriage house behind primary residence, Epworth-by-the-sea, a Historic Landmark home (originally built in 1887). Owner received green design award for using recycled and eco-friendly building materials. Restored and renovated building that was formerly used to store a buggy and horses, and provided chauffeur accommodations during the late 1800's. LOTS of personal touches and original, period-specific Eastlake Victorian design features. All linens provided, including beach towels. High ceilings, approx 600+ square feet of living space overall. Peek ocean views from balcony. This is a unique and special property, and combines luxury with rustic, historic preservation.

Guest access

Complete access to carriage house, and private on-site parking. Secure storage available for bikes and surfboards. Laundry available for longer term guests.

Interaction with guests

Home owner is an extrovert and LOVES meeting new people (and animal guests of all sorts), but at the same time, guests can expect that their privacy will be maintained at all times.

Other things to note

This unit works very well for visiting professionals seeking an alternative to extended stay hotels. Well-behaved pets are welcome for an additional fee of $25 per night, or $125 for weekly rentals. If bringing a pet, advance notice is absolutely required---please do NOT "Instant Book" if traveling with a pet. Longer term and off season rates (Oct-Mar) are available, and a modest discount is ALWAYS given for stays longer than 4 nights in duration. Weekday rentals and last minute bookings may be discounted further---just ask. 3 night minimum on weekends, please. Also PLEASE NOTE: we love children of all ages, but the carriage house bedroom is very cozy and intimate, and canNOT, under any circumstances, accommodate a crib without blocking the emergency exit. Steep staircase leading up to living space means that unit may not be toddler friendly, so we ask that you please inform us in advance if you are traveling with infants or young children under the age of 6. ***Quoted rates include 11% Transient Occupancy Tax as mandated by the City of Santa Cruz for stays less than 30 days*** Monthly rates are exempt from TOT.

Be lulled to sleep by sea lions, savor a cup of coffee on the balcony in the morning, and enjoy a run on West Cliff Drive just a block away. A dog friendly paradise close to it all where you still have the feeling of a retreat due to the elegant decor and the rain shower.

Wonderful carriage house in a perfect spot close to the beach and boardwalk! Our dogs had a fun time on the nearby dog beach and Khristina was so thoughtful and left them treats. Would recommend to all!

Khristina's place was perfect for a getaway to Santa Cruz! It was clean, cute, functional, and walking distance to everything fun in Santa Cruz. She was so welcoming to our dogs, and even gave them treats upon arrival. She made our stay easy and relaxing.

Our host Khristina gave us the ultimate Air BNB experience. The Carriage House was the perfect way for me and my spouse to exhale. A view of the ocean, great restaurants within walking distance, private parking, and a safe, quiet neighborhood. We also love a home cooked meal and the kitchenette was completely stocked with clean, quality cooking pans and utensils. Our privacy was respected. Although when we did encourage some "face time" with our host Khristina it was delightful! We would stay here again, and again!! Thank you Khristina!

The Carriage House is very beautiful and comfortable. It is ideally situated for the surfing beach - a great asset for my teenagers. Walking distance from the town is also an asset and also beautiful walks along the cliff top on your doorstep. Khristina was super helpful with suggestions of where to eat etc. Thank-you!

Khristina User ProfileKhristina is a superhost.

Extroverted host seeks fun-loving guests with two and/or four legs that appreciate coastal vistas, historic architecture, and seaside living. My pet-friendly accommodations are located on the water, and close to many of the wonderful attractions that make Santa Cruz such a great place to visit.
