Fabulous 3 nights at Tara's... location is fantastic, we loved Pleasure Point and Capitola... the house is positioned well for both Capitola and Santa Cruz...Tara made us feel so welcome and gave us some great tips on where to go and what to see. Tara was so helpful and went out of her way to ensure we managed to meet up with our son unexpectedly... very enjoyable and relaxing weekend.

Really great place to stay. A lot of room and wonderful accommodations. We really loved the balcony at night; peaceful and you can hear the waves crashing. Her dog Lily is really sweet, and loves to say hi. Tara was very open to helping us store our bikes while we were out and about.

The location of Tara's place is great especially if you like to surf (walking distance), have a dog (super dog friendly community), bike ( area very suitable for biking), enjoy sunsets on the Pacific. I was able to keep my surfboard in the garage and it was like surfing from my own home. Only better since I could walk to the breaks at Pleasure Point. Tara provides bikes to use. They work but are in need of some maintenance. The suite was really great and Tara provided good organic food products including fresh fruit. I would highly recommend a few days here.

I love living in the Pleasure Point neighborhood of Santa Cruz; people are friendly, and walk in the neighborhood. My dogs go to the beach every day to explore and play with other people with their dogs, kids building sand castles, and watch the many surfers taking advantage of the breaks.
I teach yoga, practice myself, and work privately with individuals, encouraging them to slow down, breathe, and occupy our bodies
My son, Peter, lives in the house; he is a chef at a well know Hotel/Restaurant in Santa Cruz..
I'm happy to help you find your way around town and visit a bit, and also like my space so am happy to give you yours. We don't like surprises (don't bring guests we haven't been told about, or ?)...We like clear communication.
