Come stay in this modern and cozy cottage in the heart of Santa Cruz! During the day, enjoy a short walk to surfing, beach, boardwalk, wharf, and downtown. Then come relax on your deck amongst the fruit trees!
***Please note we collect an additional 11% Transient Occupancy Tax in addition to your quote. We will send you an amended request after you book including the tax. Please see below for more details.
Come relax in this open floor plan (there is no door between the bedroom and living room), one bedroom, one bath cottage.
In the morning, grab a cup of complementary coffee or tea and enjoy it on the sunny deck. There is a kitchenette with a fridge, microwave, and coffee machine (no sink or stove).
The large and sunny bedroom has all new furniture, queen bed, large walk-in closet, and looks out onto the deck.
Hang out in the living room on the comfy futon (which folds out into a bed) and watch free Netflix, Amazon Prime, and HBO GO on the LCD TV with Roku player (no cable tv or satellite). Free wi-fi access :) Or, grab a book from the bookcase or a board game.
Towels, sheets, pillows, and comforters for the bed and the futon provided. Travel crib available upon request. One parking pass provided for on-street parking.
Enjoy your own private deck.
Interaction with Guests
My mom lives in the main house (in front of the cottage), and we live 5 minutes away, so we're around if needed, but otherwise the back cottage and deck are tucked away behind a fence :)
Our cottage is in (we think!) the perfect location to enjoy all that Santa Cruz has to offer - we're only blocks from downtown, the boardwalk, the wharf, and Cowell's beach. You can walk to the beach for coffee and breakfast at the Picnic Basket in the morning, bask in the sun on the deck in the cottage in the afternoon, and then walk downtown for dinner at night. Also, the walking path and pontoon path in Neary Lagoon is a hidden treasure, with all sorts of beautiful wildlife.
Other Things to Note
Like many other popular rentals, we have been contacted by the city to collect a transient occupancy tax of 11% of the total cost (before AirBNB fees). I'm sure all rentals will be collecting this very soon (all hotels currently collect it) - help us in being compliant with the law :). If you are interested in booking, we will send you an amended offer including this tax. Please accept this amended offer to confirm your reservation.
We are very pleased to share our living space with you. Occasionally, our very friendly medium-sized dog, Kona, pays a visit and roams the yard. Please be sure you are comfortable with this!
Two night minimum if staying Saturday night (i.e. Friday and Saturday or Saturday and Sunday).
We want you to have a great time and really enjoy Santa Cruz! This cottage is behind the main house, which is where my mom lives. While we are all about having a good time and enjoying life, if you are looking to party hard and play loud music at all hours of the night, perhaps this is not the place for you. Please no smoking in the cottage or on the property!
The check in process was very smooth and there were clear instructions and details about the cottage inside. Carla's mother also came by to welcome and helped out when I needed a couple of things.
Overall, the cottage is exactly as shown and well equipped. The location is good, close to freeway, downtown and the beach.
Our first airbnb experience and a really positive one. A comfortable spacious studio apartment with complete privacy in the garden behind the main house in a quiet residential area downtown Santa Cruz. A 15 minute walk to the wharf and beach and about 20 minutes to the main centre. Although no kitchen there is a microwave, fridge and coffee maker - with coffee supplied so fine for breakfast and snacks at the dining table. Avocados and lemons form the trees in the garden. Easy parking - permit provided - outside. A great place to stay - we did for 10 days.
Le cottage est très mignon et il aurait été parfait pour un couple en été ! En revanche, pour 4 avec deux enfants de 2 et 4 ans au mois de février (même avec 15 dehors), ce n'est pas adapté et je ne recommande pas (trop petit, trop froid - seulement un mini-chauffage, pas de quoi faire à manger...).
Plutôt bien placé, il permet de faire une visite sympa à deux des environs. Mais pas à 4 ou alors pour une nuit.
Le top : la maman de Carla qui est adorable et qui nous a très bien accueillis & Carla qui est très réactive et prévenante.
What a wonderful and charming place to stay! Carla was more than accommodating and the place was even better in person. A super comfortable bed, close to everywhere we wanted to go in SC, a scrabble board! And a list of their favorite walks/eateries/things to do in town. Highly recommend!
The listing was exactly as described. The cottage was pretty spacious and comfortable, and the house was really close to the main road in Santa Cruz.
Loved our stop over at Carla's cottage. The place was clean, tastefully decorated, quaint and quiet. Conveniently located. Close to downtown. Thanks!
Great cottage! It's the guest cottage of a house, but we had it to ourselves. It includes a queen bed, a fridge, a microwave, a TV with netflix, a bathroom, and a table to eat. Very close to downtown Santa Cruz! 5 minute drive to a variety of restaurants and shops!
Hi! My husband and I are very excited to be sharing our living space with you! We love living in Santa Cruz - there is so much to do and it is such a beautiful place to live.
We love hiking, rock climbing, skiing, surfing (my husband), and spending time with friends and family. We are looking forward to meeting new and interesting people and showing you the best of Santa Cruz!
