Enjoy a completely private cottage detached from our home that is driving or walking distance to the beach, downtown, boardwalk and the desirable westside wineries, restaurants and bakeries. We are also close to awesome mountain biking trails, the best surf, road riding, running trails (pogonip) and much more!
The cottage has a separate kitchen (brand new!), bathroom and one large spacious room with high ceilings and everything you need!
• Brand new comfortable queen bed
• Private bathroom with walk in shower
• High speed internet connection (if you have problems, please message me)
• Keurig coffee maker or french press, coffee, tea assortment
• Flat-screen plasma TV w/ basic cable
• Full refrigerator, stove, toaster oven
• Hairdryer, shampoo and conditioner
• Complimentary neighborhood parking pass
• Beach chairs on request
• Eco friendly products
• Couch and chairs for your comfort
-Washer and Dryer (washer is a front loader and gets some mildew on gasket, still works fine) **Some of the mildew will NEVER come off. It's not bad, but does have a little odor. I clean it frequently with "refresh" and a scrub of the gasket. It needs to remain open after use for the water to dry. If this is a problem for you, then this is not the rental for you. Again it's minor.
-And aerobed for extra guests.
**there is only one bed in the cottage, the aerobed is set up for guests over 2 in the same space as the main bed.
**Note: again the kitchen and the bathroom are separate and the main living area is one, spacious room. Therefore, if there are 4 of you, you will ALL be in the same room.
The main yard is shared with our family and includes a swing set.
Interaction with Guests
The cottage is set up for you to come and go as you please. We interact with you as much as you want (or as little). It's set up to be self sustainable.
The cottage is on the property of the main house and we are generally present during your stay. We are a family of four, so you will often see us roaming around our back yard playing, gardening or BBQing.
The neighborhood is quaint and quiet and is located in the desirable Westside of Santa Cruz. Downtown is just a 10 minute beautiful walk. We are located minutes from the UCSC campus as well!
The bus stops are very close...
Other Things to Note
The city of Santa Cruz requires that all Airbnb hosts collect an 11% Transient Occupancy Tax (same as hotels). As Airbnb at this time does not have a way in which to collect this tax as part of your fees, I ask my guests upon departure, to please leave 11% of their room charge, either by cash or check, in order to pay this tax to the city of Santa Cruz. I apologize ahead for the inconvenience. Thank you!
-Please... no cologne, scented after-shave, scented oils.
- We live in a tranquil residential neighborhood. We ask that guests please be mindful of noise out of respect to neighbors.
-There is NO SMOKING or pets.
- Street parking only- We will provide you with a guest pass. Please return upon departure.
-Please remove your shoes in the cottage.
Great spot! Beth was such a fantastic host. Very family friendly cottage, accommodated our last minute booking, house had all of the essentials in the kitchen and bath that we needed.
We had a good communication with Beth from the time we chose her place to the time we arrived. She was available and greeted when we got there, walked us to the cottage in the back of her house. Her place is nice, clean with everything we needed for our stay. It’s in a nice neighborhood and only a few minutes drive to the ocean or downtown. I think her cottage would be even more attractive if some of the household items, signs and furniture scattered outside the place were removed. We stayed there for one night, everything was good, we left happy.
Sorry the items in the yard bothered you Hamid. We have 2 little kids who were playing in the back yard on a Sunday with some new toys we got. We actually do go thru the yard and try to keep it as organized as possible. Hamid happened to show up after a play day. Guarantee the yard does not look like sanford and son as it may sound.
We had a very nice stay at Beth's cottage. Was just as described and pictured. When we arrived, there was an air mattress already set up as there were 4 guests. Located in a nice neighborhood and good location. Communication and instructions from Beth were both excellent.
The cottage is very cosy, and travelling with a child we especially enjoyed the full kitchen and the opportunity to have a few clothes washed. Beth and family are welcoming and the place is located so that guests have a private space.
Just as advertised! Very quiet, peaceful and comfortable little cottage. Central to all of the wonderful things in Santa Cruz. Would be a great starting spot for bicycling the town. Easy and businesslike host.
Beth and Jeff were great hosts, and the cottage was comfortable, clean and attractive. It was ideal for me, my husband, and our 8 month old baby, who we had sleep in a travel crib at the foot of our bed, and had ample floor space to play and crawl around without anything hazardous nearby. It was important for us to have quiet and privacy while we dealt with night wakings and this was great for that. We would definitely stay here again.
We would definitely return to Beth's cottage! It was spacious, clean, and well-lit - a beautiful space. As a plus, it was also stocked with environmentally friendly shampoos, a french press, and snacks for our arrival. Beth was easy to communicate with, and her husband also checked in with us to make sure everything went smoothly. The location was great - a 5 minute drive to the boardwalk/beach and a shorter drive to downtown for shopping/dining. A delightful AirBnb experience.
I am easy going and friendly. I love to play, cook, travel, hang with my family and spend time outdoors.
When I travel I have loved staying at other peoples "casitas" seeing and learning how others live. I think it's the best way to see what the town has to offer. There's nothing better than getting information from a local!
I live in the main house with my husband and 2 kids. We are very respectful of you and your space, and require the same from our guests. We are often outside playing and enjoying the day.
We look forward to meeting you!
