The Space

We are just a few blocks from the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, Santa Cruz Wharf and beautiful beaches. We are right down the hill from the beautiful UCSC campus and close to the Metro bus line.

Guest Access

You will have a separate entrance to our downstairs studio apartment from the backyard garden. There is a fully equipped private kitchen and a private patio dining area to use during nice weather.

We provide coffee, tea, a variety of cold beverages, fruit, yogurt and a variety of breakfast items upon arrival. In the bathroom, we provide shampoo, conditioner, hairdryer and bath gel. Please note that the bathroom ceiling is low so if you are over 6' tall, you may want to reconsider.

The studio can only accommodate two adults, however, we do have an air bed should you need separate sleeping arrangements.

The Santa Cruz Travel Occupancy Tax of 11% is included in our nightly rate, no addition fees are required.

Interaction with Guests

We will greet you upon your arrival to give you the key and show you around the unit. We do respect your privacy, but we are usually on the premises and available for questions, should you have any, about our beautiful area. And although you are welcome to spend one night with us, there is so much to explore in Santa Cruz, that you really need at least two nights….or more!

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is perfect for strolling and biking to both casual and fine dining at local restaurants, shopping and just plain fun!!

Getting Around

There are two taxi services in Santa Cruz as well as Uber. During the summer there is a trolley service that runs from the Boardwalk to downtown and back every 20-30 minutes. The cost is 25 cents each way.

Other Things to Note

In addition to beautiful beaches, Santa Cruz is home to majestic Redwoods located in the Henry Cowell State Park and Nisene Marks State Park. Hiking and Bike trails can be found in close-by Wilder Ranch.
