We loved the location of Tara's house. She was a lovely host and easy to chat with. The room and house is beautiful. Everything is clean and tidy. We really enjoyed our stay

Absolutely fabulous coastal home! We were walking distance to the beach, bikes were available if needed and the host, Tara, was so welcoming and sweet. She graciously gave us restaurant recommendations, things to do in town and even told us some history on Santa Cruz. Her pup, Lilly, was sweet as could be and they were so welcoming to us and our dog. I would stay here again in a heart beat - don't miss out on this gem :)

Surfer's paradise. Tara's place was awesome. Located right at Pleasure Point it was the ideal location for surfers and beach goers alike. She also had 3 bikes available for use so we were able to cruise over to 41st for dinner and shopping. Breakfast snacks were included and everything was clean and cozy. Lovely location and great host!

This was a cozy spot, close to the ocean accessible to Capitola, the Boardwalk and Pleasure Point. Host was very nice and accommodating.

Great location. Quiet w/a nice upstairs deck. King bed and amazing "rain" shower. Yummy, light breakfast provided. Coffee, creamer and slow mornings spent on the deck were awesome! Thankful for the bikes and in general just the cleanliness and thoughtful details.

This house is in a nice quiet neighbourhood but handy to the beach and shops. You get the feel of the real Pleasure Point. Friendly accommodating hosts with all the essentials provided.the bikes provided are the perfect way to get around, with great coffee at Cat and Cloud just a few blocks away.

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.
