The Neighborhood

The studio is in a beachy, residential neighborhood 1.3 miles from Pleasure Point and 1.3 miles from the Capitola beach. You can easily walk several blocks to Trader Joe's, Target, Whole Foods and other local shops and cafes.

Getting Around

Santa Cruz has much to offer. Walk on the many beaches, have fun at the world famous boardwalk, watch world class surfing, check out wineries, explore the redwoods and visit the beautiful UCSC campus. Downtown Santa Cruz and Capitola have lots of restaurants and stores. There is also a lively arts community and lots of opportunities to hear live music and other performances.

A Metro bus stop is within a couple of blocks that takes you downtown and other destinations. The drive to San Francisco takes 1 1/2 hours and to Carmel, Pacific Grove and Monterey, about an hour.

If you are arriving by plane, San Jose Airport is a 45 minute drive and San Francisco Int'l is 1 hour and 15 minutes away.

Other Things to Note

You may see a small white cat sometimes. Her name is Billie and she lives with me in the front but is an indoor/outdoor cat.
