Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.

My place is a block to Seabright beach, Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor, Whale History Museum, eateries, public transport, and several other local shops. You’ll love my place if you surf, enjoy water activities, local wineries and breweries, or just hang on the beach. You will love the neighborhood. Easy walk to the boardwalk, Wharf or downtown.

My place is good for couples, elderly (no steps), solo adventurers, families and business travelers.

It’s a great stay right next to the beach. Host was nice and communication was easy. Close to bars/restaurant. Will recommend.

Ellen’s place is so close to the beach with lovely plants and color at her place. 🌊The tiny touches of unexpected snacks and chocolates were a surprise that was very much welcomed. 💖 the skylight is lovely although to those sensitive to light, please pack a sleeping mask! ✨

Ellen’s place was a great location, a block from the ocean and about a 5 min drive to the Santa Cruz boardwalk. It was a fun little neighborhood to walk around! The space was amazing as well! Very comfy bed, all your essentials, amazing bathroom with a heated floor and shower!…
