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.
Thank you for welcoming us into your little cottage. We had such a wonderful time enjoying the bikes and the tub. It was incredible! We really enjoyed Koas company as well. Would love to stay again next year!
Every detail of the Surf Shack is created with care. Comfortable, beautiful, functional.
I loved the Surf Shack, so cute, clean and a perfect location! Cori and her husband are so nice. I hope to stay again in the future :)
We had a great stay at the Surf Shack! Cori was very accommodating to our travel changes. It is a clean and pleasant place to stay with everything you need. It is a great location within walking distance to the coast line. Don't miss Verve Coffee or Companion Bakeshop if you stay in Santa Cruz.
Our stay was great! Everything was ready as promised, very close to the beach. The bikes were a huge plus. Would stay again!
The Surf Shack was ready as promised. A sheet was included with restaurant recommendations, which were really helpful. The apartment is comfortable furnished, and located on a quiet street. It is the perfect place from which to explore Santa Cruz. It was our first visit to this fun town, and we will certainly be back. And we would happily return to the Surf Shack.
Rick was extremely responsive when we had some challenges with the TV/DVR set up.
We loved the Surf Shack -- it's a very comfortable and well-appointed base for exploring Santa Cruz, with easy access to a beautiful set of beaches a few blocks away. Although we didn't cross paths much, Cori was a very accommodating host. The hot tub was a big plus!
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.
