Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Michael was very nice and forthcoming and the apartment was in decent shape.

  • We had a wonderful stay at 9 miles North...Michael was easy to communicate with and his pictures of the beach house represent the place very well. It was beautifully decorated and very clean inside. The location is amazing, across from the beach, next to 3 wonderful restaurant/cafes and a country store. We will definitely be back!

  • Great place! It was so wonderful to feel at home near the ocean instead of being in a stale hotel. The location was great, just a short drive out of Santa Cruz, but more peaceful being away a little bit. The ocean is right across the street. The unit is very cool, with warm colors, artwork and ceramics, wood flooring, and a great fully stocked kitchen. We were able to cook our own meals or walk next door to the bakery. Michael was very friendly, helpful, and flexible with our timing. I will definitely be back as often as possible.

  • This was our first Airbnb experience and although some spotty cell reception and our late arrival made for a few nervous moments everything guickly changed when one of the regulars at Studio 480 came to our rescue. This is a great midway point if you are driving up or down the coast. We stayed in the back villa and it is super spacious. Michael has done a nice job with the kitchen and living area. We were only 2, but plenty of room for a bunch. We look forward to visiting again and spending some time with our new friends there.

  • Studio 480 was a fun and funky place to stay. So convenient! Michael was a great host--very flexible with the check-in process and very friendly. I'd definitely recommend staying there to friends!

    September 2012
  • The Studio 480 Villa was a wonderful spot to spend the night along the coast. Easy access to Santa Cruz, as well as to nearby beaches and state parks. Michael was a friendly and fantastic host, and we truly enjoyed our stay. This a great choice for an authentic California experience that definitely beats a boring and sterile hotel environment. Thanks, Michael!

  • Awesome bungalow steps away from the ocean. Our stay here was one of the highlights of a weekend trip down the coast towards Big Sur. Clean and accommodating with a surfer/artist vibe. Would definitely stay there again!

    July 2012
  • This place is GREAT stayed in one of the back studios and it slept 4 just fine. Everything you need is in walking distance store, bakery, restaurants. Michael was very nice and helpful. His place is located across from a breathtaking beach. If you are headed towards Santa Cruz there are so many amazing beaches to stop at. I will definitely be staying here again. Thanks Michael!

A little bit of everything
Hey there folks, my name is Michael. I operate a small villa with a front private house , a one bedroom bungalow in the back and other side studios, some self contained and others with shared bath and kitchen. We usually have an eclectic type of person that stays here, mostly artists, musicians, and alternative, progressive thinkers. These interesting people are drawn to this electric area maybe because we have giant redwood trees behind us and the Pacific Ocean in front of us. I live here and it's my job to make sure everyone is happy. Some nights the whole place will be full of travelers eating together, playing music, and telling story. Other nights a quite family of four arrives just to get away from the New York winter. In Davenport with a population of three hundred you get to know everybody quick. The local pub and bakery have two community events every week its quite a hoot. I'm 40 and love the area , born and raised in these hills and know every great hiking trail, every great surf spot, every great and marvelous thing to do and see in this area. We have a fun basket of toys and game equipment thats been donated by travelers and has accumulated over time , so we have wet suits and surf boards to frisbees and golf clubs. My days are full tending to the traveler and everyday I'm grateful to have the opportunity to share with people the villa space and all the beautiful things this area has to offer. This has taken almost half a life time to attain. I have traveled the world and lived in other places but I always find myself back in the Santa Cruz area. I know it, love it, and have this great job of sharing it. If anyone out there wants the front line tour, I can accommodate or if you just choose a cozy private night by the fire i can accommodate that. Like the beat of the ocean outside the villa, we march to our happy places that pull us away from our everyday grind, and I believe, this is the marching grounds for peace, happiness, well being, and adventure.... see ya soon Michael
