Our beachy feeling room has a queen size bed with a memory foam topped mattress. Just a short walk from the beach through a field of grass and down the stairs (150 of them!) and well lit in the evening. A little exercise and a lovely sunset view!
We have guest passes available to the Monterey Bay Aquarium for those who stay 2 nights. They must be returned though.

The space

Sleeps 2 persons comfortably. Nice spot to sit out on the deck for coffee and continental breakfast in the morning. We serve fresh fruit and homemade scones.

You have a very nice private bathroom.

We love to interact with our guests if they are so inclined. We are here all the time as we live upstairs and available for your needs. We have many suggestions for local restaurants and for local sites. We have maps of the area and menus for restaurants.

Our neighborhood is a beach community where many people come to their summer homes for a few days or weekends. We are close to several restaurants, bike rentals and an amazing redwood state park.

You really should have a car as the public transportation may be inconvenient to get places in a timely manner.
We have off-street parking.

It is important you park to the side in the driveway and allow for the owners to park next to you:) In other words, don't use the entire driveway for your one car. It is a wide area.

Guest access

Owners live upstairs. Upstairs is private.

Interaction with guests

We are available to our guests most of the time. We are here for check in. We love to interact with our guests and occasionally have walked the beach with them.

Other things to note

We are 1/8 mile from a beautiful Redwood Forest State Park and Land of the Medicine Buddha a retreat open to the public for hiking. LMB is beautiful with prayer flags and prayer wheels and an Enchanted Forest! Monterey Bay is alive with Sea Life! Spring through Fall you will see whales, dolphins and sea birds galore. Go Whale watching from Moss Landing 18 miles south. You can rent kayaks in Moss Landing also or go out with educational groups into Elkhorn Slough.

Very nice private patio where we enjoyed the wonderful breakfast John had prepared. The bed was comfortable. Everything was very clean. John was really friendly and accommodating.

My wife and I stayed 1 night and loved everything about John & Mary's place! Its a great location (away from all the busyness of Santa Cruz and Capitola, yet close enough to drive in for meals and activities). We loved our room which was clean and peaceful, and the hot scone breakfast with fruit and yogurt to our door was incredible! Lastly, we loved that we could walk just 1 block to the beach! Will definitely stay here again.

John and Mary were wonderful, accommodating hosts! Their place was clean, comfortable, and a perfect place to spend a long weekend. Let's not forget the scones! John made the most delicious breakfast for us every morning, which we got to enjoy in their quiet, relaxing back patio. We'd definitely recommend staying here!

John was there at check-in to provide us with keys and help get us oriented to the space. Everything was as described. Bed was super comfy and we slept well. Breakfast was beautiful and we really enjoyed sitting out on the back deck in the morning. Very peaceful.

John And Mary User ProfileJohn And Mary is a superhost.

Mary is a nurse. Johnny is a working musician and music teacher of piano and guitar

"We love meeting the people who come to our AirBnB. It is the primary reason we have started it. We also stay in AirBnB homes when we travel and it has enhanced our travels immensely. Believe it or not we found out about AirBnB in Bosnia on a trip in 2011. It can be whatever you want it to be. We sometimes choose a place because of the descriptions of the host!! Why travel so far away and not meet the people that represent the culture of the land you are exploring? AirBnB has enriched our lives."
Our yearly vacations normally consist of exploring other countries, trying new foods, learning the history, meeting the people and walking as much as possible. We love climbing towers, up into the domes of old European churches and occasionally getting a little lost for fun.
We don't usually sit on beaches but Johnny loves to swim in new seas.
