Just one and a half miles from East side beaches and Capitola village, a quiet home nestled in a culdesac. There is a shared bathroom. A dog and a cat live here too.

The space

My home is a sweet place to stay. It is a comfortable, clean, homey visit in Santa Cruz. The location lends itself to easy and quick access to many sweet spots in Santa Cruz and Capitola. I enjoy the patio in the backyard on mild mornings and it 's especially enjoyable on summer evenings. UCSC is a little farther away, approximately 20 - 25 minutes without traffic.

Guest access

Please be prepared to share the bathroom.

Check-in during week nights is after 6 pm due to my work schedule and the cute pup. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday check-in at or after 4pm.

Interaction with guests

I am generally available to guests at check-in and periodically throughout their stay as I reside in the home. I often times will enjoy a chat with my guests although it is not at all expected. My pup is very interested in everyone who walks through the front door and in her own way requires that you greet her. She is a golden doodle and generally awesome. She does bark as to protect, but she is just waiting to make friends with you ASAP.

Dana was our wonderful first Airbnb experience. The speed and care of communication was flawless and Dana was so precise. It made our experience easy. Her home is warm and inviting. She is gracious and accomodating. Our paths only crossed briefly so the whole experience was so private. We hope all of our Airbnb experiences are this easy. She has set the bar for us.

Dana is a very friendly airbnb host. Me and my girlfriend enjoy chatting with her a lot. The place has nice location and quiet neighborhood. Also, there are cute dog and cat in their house. It would be a plus for people that love these cute friends around.

It was great for me staying at Dana’s house for four nights. I showed up on my bicycle, and walked and biked everywhere. Easy bike to downtown Santa Cruz, easy walk to Capitola Beach. This is a clean, well kept house on a quiet street at the end of a cul se sac, just as advertised, which surprised me as it is just a short five minute walk to shops and restaurants, as well as a mall. Other pluses: comfortable bed, pillows and blankets, clean bathroom, and - a plus for me - a quiet enough room that I could sleep with the window open every night. Plus, Dana and Bill, and the kids were all fun to talk to. Thanks Dana!

Dana's home is clean, quiet, convenient, and cozy. There's not many hosts that are as great as Dana is--she was great in every aspect. For example, I had to check in earlier than we discussed and she was very accommodating. She was very open and communicated the amenities of the room to me including the bathroom and towels/washcloths, but also the house key that I was able to use and the kitchen as it is open for use to all her guests. I would highly recommend anyone visiting the area to stay with Dana. I know that I return to Santa Cruz I definitely would!

The place is very good, just as described. Dana is a great host. She offered us tea and snacks. She was also kind enough to allow us a very late checkout. I would definitely recommend this place to fellow travelers.

I enjoy the outdoors in my free moments - presently hiking and the beach. I have a sweet pup who will try to make friends with you if you come to my place. I love travel!!! I'd really like to spend more in Europe, but for present my travel includes going to see my three young adult/teenage children who have all moved away in the last year and a half.

As a host, I will make myself available if possible and alternatively can easily disappear if you just want solitude. I understand travel can be some of both!
