The Space

A redwood-floored sun-filled, shuttered bedroom with arched windows and gabled ceiling in a unique 1860s home in Santa Cruz. My unique 'Carpenter Gothic' is one of the earliest houses built by settlers in the mid 19th. century. Both room and
adjacent bathroom (shower, toilet, washbasin) are fully remodelled and immaculately clean on the second floor of my home. The guest room is private, quiet, and
has its own entrance staircase. It also offers panoramic views of the Monterey Bay in one of Santa Cruz's oldest, safest, quietest neighborhoods. Walking distance to downtown through other historic areas. 1/2 acre of mature gardens and an
'orchidarium' surround this unique house on the hill.
The main bus line to UCSC has a stop 3 minutes' walk away; the main terminus is a 15" walk - all downhill! Nearby attractions include the Santa Cruz Mission, its park and
all the old historic downtown replete with Victorian homes a large variety of coffee shops and restaurants. The bus route goes straight up to the UCSC Main campus; the bike ride up the hill takes about 20 minutes and granny gears!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Caroline was an incredibly gracious hostess, and her home is lovely! I would highly recommend her home for a stay in Santa Cruz, and appreciate Caroline's flexibility with my check out time.

  • Vielen Dank Liebe Caroline! Dein Haus ist echt schoen! Having arrived exhausted from four days of arduous travel I was delighted with Caroline's hospitality and the lovely room. The home, the garden/spring room and the cat are gorgeous. Regrettably, I was too tired to enjoy a nice visit with the lovely Caroline - this is a treasure I will save for next time. Thank you for a wonderful respite.

  • We, Omri (9) and his dad, came to Santa Cruz for a send soccer tournament. We both had a delightful time at Caroline's house. Caroline is the perfect host and the room is great. looking forward to our next visit.

  • Both Caroline and her house are incredibly charming, interesting and unique. She has an orchidarium amongst many other things. Everywhere you turn your head you will find something beautiful. Caroline is warm, empathetic person and it was a privilege to stay in her house.

  • Caroline is a complete gem. Her home is a perfect reflection of her personality - it's full of fascinating little treasures and is a perfect base camp to explore Santa Cruz from. My boyfriend and I choose to explore SC mostly on foot, and her house is centrally located from almost everywhere we went. Downtown is a quick little jaunt and if you're feeling more ambitious it's entirely possible to walk down to the beach. Caroline had some great suggestions for excursions (head to Kelly's Bakery and then Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing (email hidden) experience!) and we had the best sleep of our lives in our comfy private quarters.

    Definitely check out the ancient cold storage room and spend some time lounging in her garden. I think it's one of the most special spots I have ever had the privilege of visiting! Pictures don't do it justice.

  • Caroline was lovely, her house was a treasure box of art, and my room was sunny and warm as honey. Mr. Claudius the cat is as beautiful as a Monarch butterfly. I enjoyed my stay very much!

  • Magnifique maison, on s y sent bien ! On y a envie de créer et la déco est super ! La chambre et la salle de bain sont très agréables et bien isolés du reste de la maison. Les lits ne sont pas tout neuf mais restent ok. La maison est relativement proche de la rue principale a pied (compter 15min). Caroline est adorable, discute facilement tout en nous laissant de l intimité. Nikel !!

  • I stayed for only one night at this lovely home because I came to Santa Cruz to attend a memorial service. As a single woman traveling alone, I preferred to stay in a clean and comfortable place. Caroline is a warm and welcoming host! The room is spacious and peaceful. I slept very well and highly recommend this home if you would like a quiet respite from the rush and hubbub of everyday life. Considering the reason for my travel, I felt the home was a balm for my soul. My gratitude to gracious Caroline.

  • Caroline is a wonderful and interesting host, I would have liked to have more time to talk with her and see more of the yard and what she has done with this very cute place.

I am a phonetician, speech technologist, and linguist. For my professional background, see (website hidden). Apart from my academic and consulting work, I enjoy my unique Victorian house, gardening, growing orchids, cooking and fine wines, antiques, painting, hiking, camping under the stars, international travel, and most of all my gorgeous Bengal cat. This is a quiet, non-smoking, cat-loving house where dogs would have a hard time but cat-lovers will be delighted!
