I love driving that stretch of Hwy 1 between Santa Cruz and San Francisco. Now I have another great reason to stop in Davenport, besides goodies at the bakery or omelettes at the Roadhouse. My daughter and I had a wonderful overnight stay at Michael's. We were both familiar with the little town of Davenport, but unaware of the airbnb right there by the Roadhouse Inn and the Bakery until our stay Tuesday. We enjoyed a blues band and a supper next door before we settled in for a relaxing time at Michael's.
The house is funky chic, clean and comfortable. In the morning we sat on the front glassed in porch with our breakfast, enjoying the sun and fresh air. We took a walk to the beach, which was ours. (Okay, it was a Wednesday, not the weekend.)
We met our host, Michael around noon, who let us look at the bungalow and studio behind the house, all connected by broken-granite pathways and painted gates. There is enough outdoor space to bring a big group and sleep 16. You can even borrow boogie boards and wetsuits.
I like the art, metal work, the pottery with succulents and paintings everywhere. It is very Santa Cruz, yet clean and functional.
My daughter is already planning a time to bring friends for a coastal get together and enjoy the Bonny Doon tasting room next door.
We were very happy with the accommodations and the location. The only reason I might not want to give a high review is to not let the word get out. This is a little coastal gem.
Michael was the BEST! So informative and patient with our queries and relaxed! We LOVED the place and will definitely be back!!
We loved staying in Michael's very arty apartment. The beach across the road is great and the Whales Cafe next door did brilliant breakfasts and picnic supplies.
Great place in a lovely little spot. Michael was helpful and available too. Wish we could have stayed longer.
The house is brilliantly located and looks beautifull, Michael is an easy-going host - we had a great time!
My friends and I had a wonderful experience in the bungalow behind the main house of Micheal's place. It was a very pleasant surprise to see how well it accommodated the 5 of us and we had a lot of fun visiting the local beaches and swimming holes of the area. This place is a great experience and kind host for a bargain. Why stay in a stuffy hotel room when you could stay here?
Like other reviewers have said- Davenport is a beautiful little beach town. Our family of four stayed in Michael's back house. It was perfect for us. Michael was an amazing host- and gave us great advice on where to find the best local beaches and where to get fresh fish and food. We really enjoyed our trip!
Great place to stay, we enjoyed the beach access directly across the street. The back bungalow house was perfect for our family of four. Everything you need, peaceful, quiet and comfortable.
Michael was a fantastic host. Thanks Michael!
We had a lovely stay at Michael's back house bungalow. Laid back & casual. Davenport is a tiny town with beautiful beaches, a few fabulous berry farms, and a few places to eat. Breakfast next door is quite good & couldn't be more convenient. My favorite find was the beach access about 1 mile north at Davenport Landing. I didn't get a chance to meet Michael, but communication was great. Happy to have found this little hideaway.
