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.
Unterkunft war wie auf den Bildern ausgestattet - es war alles sauber und eine kleine Notiz lag bereit für uns
Beth had the cottage neat and ready for us. She even went to the trouble to set up special accommodations for our family.
This cottage was just as described and it was the perfect place for our family. The aerobed was setup and ready to go for my kids upon arrival. When you're traveling, it's a taste of home to be able to cook and wash your clothes. It was a private experience, and Beth had everything we needed as far as information and pamphlets on local activities. I would love to come back if we're ever in Santa Cruz again.
Our experience at Beth's bnb was very positive from the beginning. After requesting a reservation I received a very nice e-mail from her with all the information needed, and she welcomed us from the start.
Place was amazing! Forgot what I booked and to come to Beth's beautiful cottage I was very impressed. Just as described and more!
Beth's place was everything I could want! I felt right at home in her backyard cottage. I was able to walk to downtown Santa Cruz if desired or to relax and cook myself breakfast while enjoying the sunny and spacious rental. Even though I did not get to meet Beth, I felt welcomed.
We loved the place. Quite, comfortable, stylish, and more than we could have hoped for for children. As our first AirBnB place, it definitely was more than we expected. Beth was super flexible. I had originally reserved the place for my wife and myself, and due to some unexpected events a few days before, we needed to bring our children with us. Beth was very accommodating and set up a second bed for our children. The playground was an nice touch that our children loved.
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!
