• Full refrigerator, stove, toaster oven

• Complimentary neighborhood parking pass
• Beach chairs on request

-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.
Place is huge compared to a hotel room. Location is perfect. Quiet neighborhood yet just off the main highway. Walking distance to the downtown.
We had a very nice stay in Beth's cottage. The apartment was very spacious and welcoming. Our stay was short so we didn't use the many resources that Beth's cottage offered.
Beth was away when we got to her place but we had no problem accessing the cottage as clear instructions were given. The place was clean and as described, and the neighbourhood is very quiet and we felt very safe
Beth & Jeff were very welcoming, and true to their description, it was a clean and cozy cottage! Nice decor and the place was very comfortable. It had everything we needed (laundry facilities, nice little kitchen). There was even a nice sitting area outside the cottage for breakfast. It is in a great location for walking to front street or even a little farther to the boardwalk. They also had a nice cottage book with sights to see and all the pertinent information.
THANK YOU! It is a great place to stay:)
Beth's cottage was perfect. My boyfriend and I were only able to stay for 1 night for a mini staycation and the cottage was just what we were looking for. It's location was perfect for all the places we wanted to go to for the short amount of time we had. Beth was very accommodating and responded to my messages and questions in a very timely manner prior to our trip. She let us do an early check in as well as texted me when the cottage was ready so that we could leave our things before heading out to our destinations. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. It was such a cute and comfy place we wish we could have stayed longer. The area was quiet and private. We did hear her children playing outside in the morning when we were getting ready to leave but it was no bother to us at all. I would definitely book with Beth again if we come back to Santa Cruz.
We had a brief but wonderful stay at Beth's cottage. The place was cozy and as described in the listing. Beth was prompt with her communications, and when an issue arose with the air mattress, she handled it well. Had a great time.
About the Host, Beth
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!
