This special "East Side" spot will give you all the comforts of home with a cool surf town vibe. Walk to some of the best surf breaks from the cottage. We are excited to share this special spot with you! Welcome.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

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 new pup, Elle. She is very friendly. We ask that you make sure she doesn't go out the side gate.

My fiance and I stayed at Cori's place for two nights before our wedding weekend in the Santa Cruz area. We were able to spend two extremely relaxing days and evenings at the Surf Shack and could not have asked for more! Cori was accommodating, communicative and kind; we even met a few of her family members in passing who were lovely. Needless to say - we went off to our own wedding feeling rested and relaxed. Thank you Cori!

Loved the Surf Shack! Great location, only a few blocks to scenic waterfront and sweet beaches, with tons of cool places to hang out and be inspired. Studio was well-appointed, bright, clean, with comfortable bed and spacious bathroom. Hot tub, beach cruisers and beach chairs were really nice additions and we enjoyed them all! On-street parking was never an issue. Rick and Cori were excellent hosts, offering fabulous recommendations and conversation, but also gave us plenty of privacy. Their pup, Elle, greeted us with a big smile coming and going. A very memorable first Airbnb experience, but definitely not our last.

My GF and I spent two nights in Cori's super-cute surf shack. From check-in to check-out we had a fantastic stay in Santa Cruz and would recommend Cori's apartment to everyone staying in the region.

The surf shack is excellent! Very comfortable bed, large bathroom, furnished kitchenette, and a nice hot tub. We really enjoyed this place on our first anniversary. Walking or biking distance to some neat locations. Rick and Cori were very helpful and friendly. Great place!

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.
