Katy's place is adorable and the location is great!! Walkable to restaurants and shopping and parking was super easy. It was a pretty quick drive up to UCSC to see our daughter. Katy was so accommodating and sweet. She left us a welcome snack for arrival, knowing we had a long drive in. All the instructions were really clear and easy to follow. It was a great family vacation and we would definitely recommend staying here.

Neighborhood is not for those wishing to escape life's burdens. Transients and drug use. Downtown is great spot but sadly Santa Cruz downtown has become decensitized to the transients that show for free services and easy panhandling. I do appreciate their sensitivity to the mentally ill. The house is cute, comfortable and well kept.

katy was attentive and responsive from the moment we inquired about the house. i appreciated her willingness to work with our family, which includes small children. her space is off of a busier road, but i am used to city living so that didn't bother me (just something to keep in mind). walking to the beach was an easy mile and taking the trolley back for a quarter was perfect! downtown was very close and katy left a list of yummy places to eat and drink. overall we had a nice time. the space is small, yet quaint. i wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to others.

Absolutely loved this place! It was perfect for what we needed. My mother, boyfriend, and I wanted to get away for a few days. Obviously, Santa Cruz is a great place but Katy's home was the highlight. We felt right at home. Even before getting there, Katy was super responsive to my questions, making sure I had everything I needed. When we got there, she left us sweet treats as a welcome and left us a note with any and all details we'd need for our stay. So much great character in the place. Especially loved her series of cookbooks and the jars of pickled vegetables. We took full advantage of her kitchen, which made for some great evenings in. A short mile to the beaches. And a few blocks to another street of restaurants, stores, and cafes. Would absolutely love to stay here again! Katy, thank you for a great stay. It really made the trip.

Katy was a great host! Her 2 bedroom home is in a great location, we walked everywhere! Although we didn't cook, the kitchen was well equipped if you wanted to. Katy was flexible with our checkin and out times. We had an overall great time at Katy's home and would stay again:) thanks Katy!!

Katy's home was a perfect place for us to relax and enjoy Santa Cruz. We loved being able to cook our own meals in her well equipped kitchen, relax in her cozy living room and listen to music and walk downtown or to the beach easily. Katy welcomed us with snacks, homemade chocolate, tea and coffee. Her house rules were clear and easy to follow. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home! Blessings, Shelley and Matthew

I love to travel- to eat & explore through local communities. I have a commitment to quality, not quantity.

This Spring, I love Ranunculus!
