The surf shack is beyond cozy. It's private and quiet. Located walking distance to some of the best Santa Cruz surf breaks and beaches, Black's Beach, Santa Moe's, Sunny Cove. Swim. boogie board, surf or just collect beach glass. At night you can see the stars and hear the waves crash (when the surf is up). At night, get cozy and relax in this peaceful space. The bed may just be the most comfortable bed you ever slept in with all brand new Garnet Hill bedding.
Our guests are welcome to relax in our ozone hot tub. Melt your tired muscles and worries away. We also provide 2 cruiser bikes with locks and helmets that make cruising the beach and Pleasure Point that much easier. Live like a local. Ride to Santa Cruz' best coffee shop, Verve, in the morning and then cruise the beach.
Interaction with Guests
We live here, so we are around, but we absolutely will respect your privacy. The cottage is completely separate from our home. That being said, we love to meet new people and welcome you into our home. if you need anything at all or have any questions about Santa Cruz, please don't hesitate to ask us.
Live Oak is a very beachy part of Santa Cruz. It still has old houses and a funky surf vibe. You can still see some of the old farms that made up most of Live Oak. A great Farmers Market on Sundays is literally around the corner. There are lots of restaurant options within walking distance too; Hawaiian, Mexican, Italian, Pizza.
Nothing is very far in Santa Cruz. We are located between the Santa Cruz Harbor and Pleasure Point. With tons of fun areas to explore in between.
Other Things to Note
We are health conscious (of course, this is Santa Cruz :), so really don't want any smoking in the cottage or yard for that matter. We also cannot allow dogs. We have a quite elderly dog of our own, who is stressed out by other dogs on her home turf.
We just ask just that quests be respectful. Quiet at night with music levels kept reasonable. Please recycle (bins provided). We also have a no pet policy. We have an older dog that gets stressed out by having other dogs around. We want her last years to be as stress free as possible.
Bring good vibes.
We had an amazing time here. The place was exactly as described and next to a very nice yard for lounging. The room has everything you need and is so well kept. You can tell they put a lot of effort in. The hottub was amazing as well
Our hosts were very respectful of our privacy but when we had a problem (I couldn't figure out how to shut the hot tub) they responded within minutes.
The location is very close to several beautiful beaches. It's about 3 miles from the downtown area but definitely walkable.
We'd love to stay here again. Thanks for the great place!
The Surf Shack was our very first experience with airbnb and it was great! The pictures are very accurate and location is great. Very close to Pleasure Point and Verve! Got to meet Rick briefly and have a pleasant chat. Didn't spend to much time at the surf shack as we were out quite a bit, but the place is cozy and quiet. Overall we had a great weekend!
The Surf Shack was heavenly! It was truly beautiful, with a gorgeous sunny back yard. The hosts were incredibly friendly and accommodating. The neighborhood is nice and quiet. This has been my favorite place to stay at in Santa Cruz.
The Surf Shack is just a few blocks from the ocean and very well appointed with comfortable beds and everything you could need. We appreciated the bikes which we used to cruise the coast. Cori and Rick made us feel welcome, thank you both!
My Fiance and I had a wonderful time at the Surf Shack! We were in town for a wedding so we didn't spend too much time at the apartment but it was an amazing weekend, and Cori was incredibly accommodating! She had great recommendations for breakfast spots, there were helmets in the apartment for us to use if we wanted to ride her bikes down to the beach and we used the hot tub both nights!! I was so fantastic and relaxing, we wish we had another day just to enjoy the place.
I would definitely stay at the Surf Shack the next time I'm Santa Cruz!
Tess & Federico
We loved this condo! There was easy parking on the street, it was close to the beach and about 10 minutes away from anything one could possibly want to do!
The cottage was clean, cozy and comfortable. I can't remember the last time we slept so soundly!
Cori was warm, helpful and sweet. Their space is just gorgeous! We had the best trip and would stay with them again in a heartbeat!
About the Host, Cori
Rick and I have been together for many years. We are just beginning a life as empty nesters. We work hard to be able to play hard as much as we can mountain biking, dirt biking, skiing, hiking in the Sierras and travelling to other beautiful beachy towns. Life is good.
