The Space

Room is not available until January 22 again....

We have the coolest house in Santa Cruz! It is made out of streetcars from the 1920's, 2 of them to be exact. You will be sleeping in a huge room with 2 queen-sized beds that is multi-level. The upper half is part of a streetcar and has one bed, with a bookshelf and a piano. The lower half has another bed, a big cozy chair and some shelving and a small desk. The room has a view of the large lush garden and opens out onto a sunny (in the afternoon) deck. Chickens, a sauna, a pond, and 2 cute cob structures and a treehouse are on the property too. We have 2 cats that are indoor/outdoor.

  • The streetcar house was the perfect place to enjoy the weekend in Santa Cruz. Claudine (email hidden)ly, radiant soul with killer food recommendations. Our private entrance, clean and colorful room and bathroom, and proximity to both the beach and downtown are some of the pros of this unique residence. The backyard, filled with cob house structures, koi pond, a sauna, and some plump chickens, is a visitor attraction in itself. There's also an incredible tree house from which one can see a great view of the surrounding area. All in all, a highly recommended, quintessential Santa Cruz experience

  • Host requested late check in of 6pm and early check out of 9am which we agreed to. While on route to BnB host texted us that she wouldn’t be there until 7:30pm so we had to wait around for her. The room smells musty and slightly moldy. Covers smelled unclean and sheets had suspicious wrinkles in them as if slept upon. One of the 2 beds was a very old hard futon. The ‘large’ room with a garden view is actually rather small, overlooking an unkempt backyard with chicken feces and a green pond; yard is a work site for refurbishing the small cottage in yard, so she can sell her home, that host used until around 10:pm to mix cement outside our door . The room is cold and cluttered with tiny space for your belongings. Host shared sauna with one of the 3 in our party which was ok, but inappropriately walked naked up to door to yell to other 2 of us to shut off outside light, which was not okay with other guests. We ran out of toilet paper with no refill. The bathroom door squeaks very loudly, host shares bathroom with another door into it and asked us to shut our door in the night. Every time someone gets up to use bathroom other guests will be woken up. Only one towel each and no washcloths; host had their towels on towel hooks. If you like staying in a hovel, this place is for you. I almost called my credit card company to try to get half my money back but didn't want more drama.

    Response from Claudine:

    Sadly there are guests who come to AirBnB with high demands and expectations without being conscious that they are being hosted in someone's home, not a hotel or resort. These people should think twice about AirBnB.
    Luckily these are few and far between. Oh well.

  • Since Claudine is selling the house and moving, this room will not be available much longer. It was very interesting to see the cob structures in her backyard, and to admire her creativity and skill in building the tree house and designing the "street car" house.
