The Space

Cozy light airy home blocks from west cliff with 2 queen bedroom and 1 single bed bedroom with outdoor dining relaxing deck on quiet street on west side. A place for families, couples and mellow getaways. Its an upstairs/downstairs arrangement with a full bath both upstairs and downstairs. Skylights and windows throughout the house bring light into every room. Fully equipped with hot tub, fire pit and outdoor seating area, and relaxed and comfortable dining inside large open kitchen for family and friend meals. The house comes with a loveable adorable cat- Oslo- who requires no care whatsoever- but he adds an aura of warmth and home to an already well equipped and clean house.

Skylights, windows and fully equipped kitchen for relaxing getaways

Entire house- the owners belongings are in the home so respectful guests appreciated.

Communication prior to stay with instructions and available for questions

Quiet family friendly street, easy walk to beach and steamers lane - within walking distance of Kelly's bakery, 20 minutes to walk downtown and within blocks of delightful west cliff bike path- Perfect spot for enjoying the West side of Santa Cruz and downtown area.

Around the corner from bus stop.

A Note: The house is very light! There are skylights throughout the house, so in the morning there is light coming in the home. Some people have complained about not being able to sleep in because of natural light#

This is a home for responsible guests, and not the appropriate place for parties or college guests. Must be 25+ to rent. Thank you.

House Rules

No parties, if you break something, we request that you pay for replacement. This is our home, please treat it as such- thats all we ask.

All of our belongings are in the home; we are trusting you to care for our home as we do. Our spices and condiments are in the cupboards- Feel free to use condiments sparingly-(we ask that you not follow the lead of one guest who used an entire $16 bottle of olive oil. Just be gracious or please replace with another item!

No smoking. If smoking occurs in the home, an additional $125 cleaning fee will be added.

Showers prior to using hotub are required - no sand allowed in hotub or a $150 cleaning fee for maintenance is required Sorry we have had problems before with this!

The maximum number of people allowed in the house is 5 (not including children). This is a hard rule, and should not be violated unless there is a discussion in advance with the home owner. If you are planning on using the house with more guests, please find an alternative home. This is not a party house, rather a cozy intimate home, and Im sure we can help you find a place appropriate for your needs.
