About this listing
Our sunny studio has a complete kitchen, hardwood floors in the sleeping area, a large, curved shower and plenty of privacy. It's on a rural road, yet less than 5 minutes from Highway 1. 15 minutes to Santa Cruz and 30 minutes to Monterey. Dog = yes.
View of rolling hills and beautiful trees (cypress, eucalyptus, black walnut and oak). In less than 10 minutes, you can be at the stunning Seascape Resort beach.
Studio is fully contained. There is no access to the yard; so if you bring your dog, you will have to walk your pup.
Interaction with Guests
We are available to interact with guests as much as they desire; however, we respect their privacy.
Quiet, rural setting, friendly neighbors. Lots of places to walk your dog on leash.
A short walk to Freedom Blvd. and you can catch the local Santa Cruz Metro bus service.
Other Things to Note
We have a welcome letter in the studio that lists great hikes, beaches and restaurants.
ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING TOBACCO PRODUCTS ON THE PROPERTY AND ON APPLE LANE. FIRE DANGER IS EXTREMELY HIGH.
WE ONLY HAVE PARKING FOR ONE (1) VEHICLE.
Quiet after 10 pm. If guests bring a dog, please clean up.
Cathy and Stanley were gracious hosts who made us feel welcome. The studio was tidy, cozy, and just as we hoped and expected. The location worked well for us, away from the noise of Santa Cruz but close enough to town.
We had a great stay in this studio. The location was fantastic, right off the highway so it was easy to get into Santa Cruz and to the beach. The studio is just as described, small and cozy, but comfortable for two people. Cathy and Stanley were very friendly and helpful when we had questions, but generally gave us our privacy. I would highly recommend staying here!
Quiet and relaxing. Stan was available for questions, but also gave us plenty of privacy. The house has a country rural feel. We even saw a deer in the meadow behind the house. The beach is an easy 5-10 min drive. Felt like we got to enjoy the country side and beach!
We had a wonderful, quiet stay at Cathy and Stan's- it was exactly what we were looking for (quiet, secluded, peaceful)! It's the perfect solution if you need a quiet evening for an overnight trip and has a very soft, comfy bed! The location is great as well and was situated so that popping into Santa Cruz was an easy option.
We needed a place to stay between our Yosemite trip and our flight home. Thanks to our hosts, not only did we have a lovely place to clean up and sleep, but also enjoyed a fabulous breakfast and morning at the beach due to their recommendations. The place was very clean, and perfect for what we needed!
I really enjoyed staying here. Cathy and Stanley have cultivated a peaceful home away from home; they were also extremely communicative when booking. The space was perfectly sized and clean. I slept really well with the exception of a few noises (humming of the fridge and ticking of the clock). I would stay here again if Cathy and Stanley will have me! Thank you both!

Our studio is cozy, with beautiful views and can't be seen from the road. Private! There is one shared wall, which is our laundry room. We ask that you bring your own food. There's a stove, refrigerator, microwave, tea pot and French press, along with the usual assortment of pots, pans and dishes. We have a 23 pound dog, loves everyone, and a big orange cat. Cell phones don't always work well here, AT&T is fine, Verizon has spots that usually work and texting usually goes through. Internet works fine. We look forward to meeting you.
