pros: the cottage was very nice, secluded & private, had everything needed for a stay, clean, hot tub was hot
cons: the bed was the worst. huge whole in the middle. wife slept on the bed and I slept on the couch all three days. 30% of the hot tub jets actually worked. if weren't for limited funds-would have found other accommodations just to get a good night sleep. would not recommend unless there was a new bed
Great communication, lovely cottage. We had a wonderful time, and would love to come back here next time we need a trip to Santa Cruz. Thanks again!
This cottage is a gem! The pictures do not do it justice...it's absolutely adorable and in a great location. We had three adults and 2 dogs and it was plenty big...the bed, aerobed and couch were all comfortable. We had two cars and parked easily on the street during our stay. Mara was also super responsive. Definitely would recommend this place!
Mara was gracious and accommodating. The cottage had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The fireplace and hot tub were on for us when we got there. The bed was incredibly soft. The location was perfect. Would recommend this place to friends.
My boyfriend & I, and our 2 dogs had a great time at Mara's place. The space is beautiful, well kept, modern, and has a lovely kitchen. The hot tub and double shower were definitely perks. We loved that Santa Cruz is so easy to get around. From Mara's we could walk to Brasil Cafe as well as Burger. 2 restaurants you'll want to visit while in SC.
Another plus of this space was that it was fully enclosed by a tall fence, which meant my dogs had their own secure yard, and we had our privacy. Mara was also really nice to offer suggestions on things to do around town. Several beach and park access points are just a 5 - 10 minute drive from here. There is also ample street parking available.
We absolutely loved staying here. Mara & Zach are lovely and were very responsive to all our communications & requests. The location is close to everything and only a short drive to the ocean, while still being very quiet and private. Upon arrival we walked through the front garden door and felt like we'd stepped into our own little secret garden. The cottage is beautifully designed and the photos do not do it justice. Mara and Zach have created a sanctuary right near downtown Santa Cruz with everything you could need, a great kitchen, very comfortable living space, work desks for two people, comfortable cozy bed, lots of good books, double shower head, hot tub and spacious outdoor deck & garden. The space is designed to allow in a lot of natural light with views to the garden. This was just the perfect space for our stay in Santa Cruz and we will definitely stay here again. Thanks Mara & Zach.. we loved it! Nikita & Cornflower
A lovely, relaxing stay! The home is warm, inviting, cozy, comfortable, and impeccably clean. Mara herself was very friendly, helpful, and communicative - she made everything easy from the get-go. Highly recommended!
I had a great time at this little Sanctuary. The house is beautiful and quiet. Everything was perfect!!!
So, the pictures for this place do it no justice. If you are looking for a completely private sunny getaway complete with hot tub and beautiful accommodations, then this is your place. Although I never met Mara personally, she left everything in perfect order and checking in/out was as simple as can be. The bed here is extra cozy and super soft. The sectional couch is actually VERY comfortable (contrary to another user's review) and the remodeling is very up to date and charming. If I am ever in Santa Cruz, this is a great spot to relax after an exhausting day at the beach. Do yourself a favor and book now.
