About this listing
Welcome! Relaxing, comfortable coastal studio within a 5 minute flat, stroll along the creek to RDM Beach awaits you.
Walking distance to Cafe Rio, Pixie Deli and coffee shop & Sea Cliff Shipwreck. Aptos Village nearby with tasty restaurants.
The Studio is detached from the main house and has it's own entrance. Attached full bathroom with shower.
The setting is very tranquil, surrounded by beautiful, old Oak and Maple trees with the sounds of birds chirping and very light and bright.
Wi-fi and all other utilities are included.
I have an older dog however the outdoor space is separate so he's in his own back yard closed off and you have your own private patio.
Open outdoor shower for rinsing off after the beach with HOT water.
Street parking in front. House is located across from the creek so it's quiet with no neighbors across the way, on a one way road.
Outdoor shower and private patio.
Interaction with Guests
Open to saying hello if you are, if you are not it's okay.
I love walking down the creek to the beach and the walkway to Sea Cliff Beach Pier and looking out at the Shipwreck. Love sitting outside at Cafe Rio and ordering the grilled artichoke. This area is pretty mellow and the ocean really is a marine sanctuary. I always see seals by the shore and dolphins frolicking about and certain times of the year loads of whales. Free admission to Sea World out there and with the birds and everything it's like something out of National Geographic at times.
Not too much public transportation. Some bus access.. bring your bike, great area for walking. It's best seen with a car especially if you want to check out all the local activity including kayaking, whale watching, hiking, wine tasting, sailing, Nisene State Park, Monterey, Carmel, Moss Landing and Downtown Santa Cruz.

Absolutely perfect and adorable! Wish we could have stayed longer!
The little cottage is as cute as the picture shows... as a plus,it has an extra-room with the private porch.
It is very close to the beach and very, very quiet.
And the fact that it allows dog, it is such a big plus!
Liz was a great host, letting me be very free and very understanding, when a personal situation came up. Tks!!
Em portugues: A casinha, super perto da casa, e' realmente linda! Exatamente como a foto mostra. O fato que tem um terraco privado e' excelente e o local, alem de ser perto da praia, e' super tranquilo e quieto. Liz foi uma hospede muito legal, compreensiva, deixando-me bem `a vontade... Obrigada!
Liz's studio was cozy, comfortable and as described. She was clear in her communication and we had a lot of privacy to relax. Loved her food recommendations and thoughtful touches around the studio.
Fantastic self contained anex. We had everything we needed and found our stay very comfortable. Highly recommend!
Thanks to Liz and her Coastal Studio, my first AirBnB experience was WONDERFUL!
I wanted a place to retreat, unplug, and veg for a few days and Liz's place was perfect. The listing description and photos truly represented the studio: it was clean, comfortable, bright, and loaded with all the home away from home items that a person would need. The private patio is definitely a plus and a great space for meals.
The community is safe and quiet with the beach only a short walk down the road.
Liz was very responsive and accepted my reservation promptly and followed up with information afterwards. Unfortunately, I was so "burnt out" I checked in right at 2pm and only left the unit once for an early morning walk on the beach.
I would certainly return in the future!
Le studio est tel que décrit sur les photos, bien aménagé, proche de la plage. Liz a été très disponible avant notre arrivée pour répondre à nos questions et avait prévu de nombreux renseignements pour nous permettre de découvrir les environs.
About the Host, Liz
No act of kindness,
no matter how small,
is ever wasted.
Favorite travel destinations include:
Azores Islands, Portugal - I could be a bit bias here, as my family is from the beautiful island of Pico, Azores.
I was very fortunate to have backpacked on my own for 9 months all throughout SE Asia, New Zealand, Australia, Nepal and Hong Kong and love every one of these places. It was the best time of my life.
