My husband & stayed 2 nights. The upstairs suite was very pleasant, roomy, & open. We really enjoyed the French doors opening up to a nice sized deck, great for relaxing & reading, etc. Tara was very accommodating & responsive when we had questions or concerns. The location is great. Nice walk to the beach and to town of Capitola. Tara also provided a refrigerator w/ fresh fruit, juice, granola & croissants. We would definitely return. Linda & Jeff
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful two-night experience at Twin Palms B & B. Tara was very pleasant, easy to communicate with, and the room was exactly as described. It was clean, spacious, private, and stocked with fresh fruit and baked goods! What more could one ask for? All in all, the whole experience was effortless and made for an easy weekend getaway.
The house is located just two blocks from the Ocean and 10-minutes walking distance from shops and restaurants. Very convenient!
We had a great stay at Tara's place! The room, balcony, and breakfasts foods were very welcoming. The bathroom is amazing. It is a great location by pleasure point beach. We would stay here again if we were in the area!
The listing description was spot on, and I was able to move in an hour early. The neighborhood was neighborly, and located, as described about a block from a stunning ocean overlook.
My husband and I appreciated Tara being reliable and thorough. There were many highlights during our stay.....spacious room, king size bed with luscious sheets, French doors opening onto a deck with potted flowers and plants, great coffee (!) quiet & private room and bathroom.
Can't beat the location. The room was clean and spacious, just like the pictures show.
My wife and I had a really nice stay at Twin Palms. The photos are very accurate. The suite is large and very private. It's very light and airy, and the moonlight shining in the french doors at night was lovely. Very nice bathroom with large shower. Very comfortable bed. You have to walk through the house to get to the suite, but that was no problem. It's a short walk to the shoreline, and we spent most of our time walking along the shore and hanging out at the beach. We really enjoyed the Pleasure Point "vibe", which is hard to put into words but needs to be experienced! We had lunch at the Point Cafe just down the street, which was really good. Overall an excellent stay!
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
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.
