  • We had a great time staying at the Guest Nest! Julie and Kishka are lovely women with two wonderful boys, and we felt very comfortable there. It was a great place for a family, our kids got along great with the boys and will definitely miss them. We hope to come back to see Julie and Kishka and the boys some time soon! Thank you for such a warm welcome:)

  • We had a great stay in the Blue Sparrow's Nest: We arrived on Christmas day, and Julie and Kischka had surprised us with a decorated Christmas tree, cookies, wine and a home made cake for the next morning. The apartment was perfect for our family, and it had everything we needed, we even got to use the BBQ outside and in the evening we played one of their many board games! Julie and Kischka suggested restaurants, surf rentals and more...We really enjoyed our stay in Santa Cruz.
