Beautiful quiet separate apartment with lovely patio, fruit trees and organic gardens. Fits two w/private full bath. Dog friendly fenced yard. Easy access to east/west cliff surf spots. 5 minutes to beaches, the wharf, harbor or downtown.

The Space

The apartment has a private entrance and a full private bath. There is a full size (double) bed with a BRAND NEW MEMORY FOAM MATTRESS made of natural latex, AND NEW BOX SPRINGS, new pillows, sheets and a down comforter. The bathroom is new and immaculately clean (we use only non toxic cleaning products). The apartment has just been freshly painted with non- v.o.c. paint. There is a mini fridge. We provide towels and beach chairs. Help yourselves to any of the organic fruit trees when they are in season. There are pears, apples, persimmons, meyer lemons and loquats!

Guest Access

The apartment, fenced yard, free street parking, stone patio and badminton are all available for you to enjoy.

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Great place to stay. The room was cozy and private. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was clean. The dog is very friendly. Great location. Close walk to plenty of places to eat and a short drive to everything else. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Jonathan is a great host. We arrived at 10pm and he waited for us in front of their house and welcomed us. Room is very clean and the place is quiet not too much noise. Here is a good place to stay. Hope next time can stay longer.

  • The hosts were very friendly. Lyle, the dog, was great to have around. The bed was very comfortable. And we liked the location. There's a Whole Foods down the street and you're only 6 minutes from the Boardwalk.

  • La chambre de Jonathan est parfaite, calme et très propre. Nous avons apprécié le petit jardin devant très agréable. La communication avec Jonathan est très facile. Le centre ville de Santa Cruz est vraiment pas loin à pied. Merci pour ce séjour très agréable

  • This is a nice little place. Jonathan and Suzanne are very accommodating. It was hot when we arrived so they brought us out a fan but it does cool down at night so we didn't even use it. The bed was comfortable, good shower and I made a cup of tea in the morning from the kettle in the room. I would definitely come back and stay here again :-)

  • Our trip was easy. The owners are friendly but give you your privacy.
    The place is on a cute & quiet street, pretty close to anything you'd need in town.

    The room can get a bit stuffy, as there is no AC. Open windows worked fine unless there was no breeze. We actually got a cheap fan at walgreens one late night when we couldn't sleep.
    The fridge/freezer works very well. Good water pressure in the shower. Plenty of clean towels. There are playing cards and books to pass the time.
    Lyle the dog is extremely friendly but well mannered .
    I would recommend this place for sure.

  • Visiting Santa Cruz is great and jonathon and Suzanne's place is a perfect place to do it from.

  • This was perfect for our short trip to Santa Cruz. The apartment had just enough space for a couple to comfortably stay. The bed was comfortable, it was quiet, private, and had a mini fridge and water cooler. Everything was very clean and had also all the basic amenities you need (towels, blanket, shampoo & conditioner).

    The location is great too - 5 min drive to downtown, 10 mins to the boardwalk and beach.

    Jonathan and his wife were friendly and made us feel comfortable and welcome. Plus, they have a cute and very friendly dog. (He seemed to stay inside most of the time though, and we never heard barking.)

  • Great place, great location. Highly recommend over any hotel in Santa Cruz.

  • Such a great place to stay! The location is amazing you are close to everything. The bed is super comfortable and it was the perfect size cottage. Great host... I will definitely stay there again when I'm in Santa Cruz again.
