Guest access

The main yard is shared with our family and includes a swing set (that you are welcome to use). You do have a semi-private backyard, that we don't go in to. Please make yourselves at home.

Interaction with guests

The cottage is set up for you to come and go as you please. We interact with you as much (or as little) as you want . It's set up to be self sustainable.

The cottage is on the property of the main house. We are rarely around M-F but on the weekend, 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.

Other things to note

The city of Santa Cruz requires that all Airbnb hosts collect an 11% Transient Occupancy Tax (same as hotels). Unfortunately, Santa Cruz CITY has NOT yet formed a relationship that allows air bnb to collect the tax at this time, therefore I ask my guests to please leave 11% of their room charge, either by cash or check (I will leave an envelope in cottage). I do understand that this is an inconvenience, for which I apologize. This is also why you have NOT the similar experience at other air bnbs.
Thank you!

Had an enjoyable experience staying here! The only negative would be that the wifi is a bit slow and unreliable but if you're not expecting to do any work while you're here, this is a perfect place!

Beth's place was great!! Everything was very clean and super cute! The home is very close to the boardwalk and grocery stores and restaurants. My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much at Beth's.

We loved everything about our stay at Beth's cottage! Beth was welcoming when we arrived and the one or two questions we had were answered promptly! The cottage is as bright and lovely as pictured and it was very comfortable for our family weekend away! Our children enjoyed the outdoor play space and dining on the outdoor patio and we enjoyed the convenience of a full kitchen, washer and dryer and a beautiful home!

We stayed here for two weeks and had a wonderful stay. The cottage is clean, well decorated and equipped with all you need. They've done a really nice job on the space and were very easy and helpful with our stay.

Beth's place was great, they were friendly hosts and the location is fantastic. Quiet but a 15 minute walk to downtown, and in a beautiful neighborhood.

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!
