We loved staying at Christine's cottage. It was everything we wanted and needed and were very comfortable. Christine goes out of her way to make sure her guests are comfortable. It's a large, bright studio with a small yet full service kitchen so easy to prepare meals if you choose to. The nespresso coffee was a pleasant surprise! The cottage is closer to Capitola than the main attractions in Santa Cruz but Capitola is very charming and it's only a 15 min drive to Santa Cruz boardwalk and Lighthouse Point Beach which is very dog friendly (lots of well behaved and happy dogs) and a special place-near the Surf Museum. There's a Starbucks, Trader Joe's, Target and Whole Foods about 5 minutes away. We'll definitely go back and were sad to return home to San Francisco after having a fun, beachy mini holiday!

Christine's place was very cute, comfortable and private. I went for just a quick night away to enjoy the beach and her house was conveniently located for a few restaurants etc. To get to the beach, you have to drive if you are looking for close proximity. Christine was very accommodating and responded to messages almost immediately! I would stay again.

We had a wonderful stay at Christine's Cottage. Christine was incredibly hospitable, easily accessible and gave wonderful recommendations for the area. Check-in/check-out were also incredibly easy thanks to Christine's great communication. Christine's Cottage is just about a mile away from Capitola Village (which is BEAUTIFUL) and about a 10 minute drive from the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. We would definitely stay here again!

Christine's cottage is a lovely studio. It is only one room, but it is quite a large living area, with a king size bed, couch, large stand alone closet with plenty of space to hang cloths, and shelves, and It is also stocked full of blankets for your doggies. A large television with all the bells and whistles, (don't forget your favorite CD's). There is stand alone fireplace that can be used just to enjoy the lights of a fire, or as a heater, and it heats the cottage very well. There is a full kitchen complete with an espresso machine, microwave, blender, toaster, oven and stove, large fridg., and all the dishes, and silverware you will need. There is also a dining table that could seat four people. there are plenty of hand towels in the kitchen, and more than enough bath and beach towels too. Plenty of room in the bathroom for all of your personal items, and a full tub bath. VERY clean and quiet. Also a small grassy area for doggies to go potty. A real home away from home.

Lovely cozy, comfortable cottage. Well situated, extremely well equipped with every attention to detail and Christine's welcoming personal touches. Christine went far above and beyond her role as hostess to make our stay extra special. Our dog Duke enjoyed his stay just as much as we did.
