Overall Guest Satisfaction

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

    March 2014
  • 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!

  • Michael was a very nice and available host, both during the booking process and during our stay. The house is right across from the ocean surrounded by a cozy little community. It has everything you need. I wish I could surf because the spot would be perfect for that, and I'm sure it's even better in the Summer when you can enjoy the outdoor area as well. I definitely recommend Michael's house!

  • We had an absolutely wonderful time at Michael's home, which was lovely and right off the 1 near the coast with dramatic cliffs and sunset views.

    Michael himself is very friendly and accommodating, and we couldn't have hoped for a better arrangement. My husband and I stayed a couple nights with my parents and our brothers, and the six of us had a blast. Highly recommend this place and Michael!

  • Michael's place is a little piece of heaven. We were traveling with our one-year old and needed a home to stay in. Michael is fantastic. The place was spotless, well-equipt, and full of generosity. We really felt like part of a community. Michael's clearly put a lot of heart and soul into this place. And the artwork is awesome. Next time we're in the area, this is definitely where we'll be staying. Plus, breakfast right next door kept our bellies full of joy. Thank you to Michael!!!

  • The location was great and just as it was described on the site. Perfect place to relax after my business week in SF. Clean, comfortable, wifi, ocean across the street - what more could you want.

    July 2013
  • Michael is a nice host with great scene. I wished we could have stayed longer. Sometimes when we travel, location does matter and this one is very cool. Davenport is a quite little stop with a gorgeous hidden beach just a short walk across Hwy 1. The bar and grill/bakery next door had the best fish and chips, but the real surprise were the croissants the next morning - best ever, no really.

    Michael's place is very well decorated with a comfortable environment. He has pulled together a nice house that can accommodate a variety of stays. I look forward to my next trip to Davenport!

    July 2013
  • Very nice house greatly located (just in front of the ocean, 15 min from Santa Cruz). We had just some issues with locking systems but Ashley and Michael were careful and available to help us.
    I recommand this adress for any group that are looking for a cosy and feeling good location.

    June 2013
  • Michael was a pleasure to work with, and the lovely bungalow we rented for a bachelorette party was perfect for a quite celebration. Even with a slight miscommunication about the day our reservation began, Michael made sure that our needs were met.

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
