Interaction with Guests
We will be in the main house during your stay. We are happy to share information about Santa Cruz. We are generally social and relaxed people. We do have a large and exceedingly friendly golden retriever mix dog, Lyle. He spends a good deal of time in our fenced yard and you will be sure to meet him coming and going. If you have any questions or needs or would like to chat we are available but will not be intrusive during your visit.
This neighborhood is known as the banana belt because it's the sunniest spot in Santa Cruz! We are located in easy walking distance from several great local restaurants like the Crepe Place (best place to see live music most nights of the week) and Lillian's (Italian restaurant, extremely popular). There's also great sushi (Akira) and Thai food (Real Thai-delivers!). It's a 5 minute walk to the Buttery Bakery (amazing pastries, coffee, brunch) and to Shopper's Corner (best local market). It's a quiet residential neighborhood without the seedy elements of Santa Cruz but still with quick and easy access to beaches, boardwalk and downtown.
We are close to several bus lines. It's very easy to get around on foot, by bike or by car.
Other Things to Note
We are musicians and occasionally have band practice on the property. We never play later than 9:30 and are generally not super loud. We have internet, but the wifi signal in the apartment is a little spotty at times.
Please no smoking inside the apartment.
