Welcome to Jasmine Garden Oasis Retreat House—3 block walk to quiet beaches. Ideal for individuals, couples, or families seeking serene setting. Two upstairs independent guest studios inside our home, each with queen bed and extra beds for $30 charge: Jade Studio with private deck, and Birdsong Studio overlooking garden. Garden hot tub, meditation & QiGong instruction, bicycle loan, allergy-free, healing sessions, and low-EMF option--renewing for heart, body & soul. Sunrise/sunset at beach.

The space
BIRDSONG STUDIO has a queen bed, private bathroom with small shower, private entrance via back stairs, French Doors overlooking the garden to the south, west-facing window over side garden, and a small but convenient kitchenette space. When the surf is high, you can hear the waves through the open west window.
PRIVATE BUT NOT PRIVACY: The studio is inside our home so although we may never see you, we may hear you and you may hear us because noise carries through the walls.
KITCHENETTE: The kitchen side of the room has a sink and small counter, refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee maker, and toaster oven, with kitchen supplies. We set out a complimentary small breakfast the first morning-- instant organic oatmeal and organic fruit, plus coffee, tea, cream, and sweetener.
ADDITIONAL BED:
For 1 or 2 guests (same price), the queen bed is provided. If you would like separate beds, please tell us and we will set up a single floor bed for a one-time charge of $30.
For 3 guests, we set up a single floor bed. Included in price of third guest.
For 4 guests, we set up a cot in addition to the floor bed. Included in price of four guests.
ECO-SENSITIVE: We provide a healthy environment, use green and non-toxic products whenever possible, non-scented soaps and detergents. We are eco-friendly, use solar panels and grey water, hang dry clothes when possible, conserve water, and recycle.
We practice sustainable living inside the house with detailed recycling, energy-efficient and timed appliances, fragrance-free products, bio-friendly cleaning supplies, and daylight living. Outside we use solar panels on our roof, grey water and timed drip system for our gardens, and pesticide-free planting.
LOW-EMF OPTION: For people who are EMF sensitive, the gardens are EMF free. Studios have ethernet (with adapters), separate breaker box for electric circuit control, and available landline. Although our router is shielded, a more complete wifi free environment is possible if you book both upstairs studios or if both sets of guests agree to turning off wifi.

Where you’ll be

Santa Cruz, California, United States

Our neighborhood is a relatively quiet neighborhood with an assortment of people who enjoy living near the beach--including long-time residents, families, retired people, UCSC students, and surfers interspersed to keep it characteristic of Santa Cruz.
Two blocks away is a modest shopping center which hosts the local farmer's market on Sunday mornings. A handful of eateries and a coffee shop, from fast food to upscale dining, line the two blocks toward the beaches. A back way to the beach (our special secret) is three lovely blocks, two of which are walking/biking trails, one lined with Cypress trees, and the next along a lagoon lined with Eucalyptus trees. Wonderful Farmer's Market across 17th Street on Sunday mornings is not to be missed!
The Harbor and Crows Nest restaurant and nightclub are a several blocks to the west along the shore. Downtown Santa Cruz is 3 miles west and Capitola, a quaint seaside town, is 2 miles east. Both are easily accessible by bike lanes, public transportation and car.

We, Peter & Marie, are a married couple who relish offering our sweet space & location to guests. We enjoy living in a tranquil atmosphere and want to share this with others of like mind at our home, Jasmine Garden Oasis Retreat House near the Sea. It is a modest home tucked away in a modest neighborhood three blocks from the beach in east Santa Cruz with two independent Airbnb studios upstairs, and expand to include the whole house when we offer guided retreats. We keep gentle gardens and cosy comfortable atmosphere for people who want a time of renewal for body and soul. Often we enjoy the short tree-lined walk to visit the quiet beach and listen to the surf, especially at dawn and dusk. We welcome our Airbnb guests to join us early mornings with either QiGong or meditation in the garden or at the nearby lagoon. We have a list of healing artists who have offered to deliver their services to our guests in their private rooms or in the garden.

During your stay

Everything is set up for guests to be independent --We offer two Airbnb studios upstairs in our home that are self-sufficient. The front garden and outdoor hot tub are open to all guests. You will find in your room an informational notebook about the property, the neighborhood, healing artists who deliver services to the home, walking directions to the beach, bike rentals, local eateries, shops, and other Santa Cruz attractions. If you are interested for joining us for meditation or QiGong in the morning--we are happy to furnish instruction if you desire--tell us the day before to get our current schedule. If we are not home when you need something, then we are usually accessible by Airbnb messaging or texting. When we are gone for extended periods a guest host stays in our home.
