Twin Palms Bed and Breakfast was awesome! Tara was very sweet. She provided fresh fruit, yogurt, and croissants for breakfast each morning. We loved the location! My husband and I walked to the ocean every morning to watch the surfers. We also used Tara's bikes and rode to Capitola. The room was very private and had everything we needed, even a private deck to relax on.
Tara was a lovely host. The room and terrace was spectacular and it was an absolute pleasure to stay in this comfortable home in a great location. We made great use of the bikes that Tara kindly provided. The breakfast provided was a really nice touch. We would definitely stay again.
Tara was a warm, welcoming and very accommodating host. We loved staying in her beautiful master suite, with beautiful light, a garden balcony, a delicious breakfast and coffee and bikes to rent. Her family was extremely helpful, and we would book again in a second.
The neighborhood is very residential and quiet. It's less than five minutes to the beach where we watched surfers and enjoyed the view. We spent three nights here and found the room to be nice and clean, the pvt deck was a great place to drink our morning coffee. We loved all the different succulents arranged in pots. To get to the second floor space, we had to walk thru Tara's living room and past her dog Lily who barked. Tara was pleasant and easy to talk with.
Was a great place to stay. Beautiful private room and deck in a great location. Tara was a great host. We look forward to staying here again.
About the Host, Tara
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
