Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a wonderful time! The garden is peaceful (email hidden) to sit and enjoy a bottle of wine. Cathy gave us suggestions to some great places to eat and sight see. I had never seen Santa Cruz outside of the boardwalk and the bikes Cathy and Pete have available are perfect for exploring! We would definitely stay here again.

  • You will be so thankful if you choose to stay in Pete's truly lovely home. My female friend and I stayed one night last minute. He responded to our request within 15 minutes or less! I am attending UCSC in the fall and Pete sold me on the city. His home is beautiful, comfortable and interesting. His art collection is wonderful. He (email hidden), conversationalist and person. His homemade coffee cake (from a loquat tree in his backyard) was delicious! I will definitely stay at his home again in the near future. Thank you Pete!

However, he seems (email hidden)e room and house is really nice and clean, and the garden is beautiful. There are a lot of good suggestions of what to do while in Santa Cruz, including a map in the room you are staying. We will definitely stay here again if we ever go back to Santa Cruz!

  • We stayed at Pete & Cathy's just one night on May 17, 2014. The house is located in a safe and quiet residential area. It took us about 15 min. to get to the Boardwalk by a car in the early morning. There were other guests staying while we were there. Pete, Cathy and a pet cat are very friendly hosts. We fully (email hidden) which was provided by Pete & Cathy, and it was very helpful. We enjoyed talking with Pete over a cup of fresh morning coffee. The house and the room were kept neat and clean. There is a bathroom shared by the guests which was also kept clean. We highly recommend Pete & Cathy's for those who visit Santa Cruz!

  • I've been wanting to write this review - sorry, I've taken so long to get to it! I was lucky enough to choose "Lovely bedroom near beach & Santa Cruz", recently. This was my first Airbnb experience and it really "beats" a stay in a hotel! I returned home happy and more relaxed.

    Pete and Cathy were very generous hosts and they were so friendly! Pete loves to show you around his house (it looks just like the photo) and garden area with brand new baby chicks! He can share a wealth of info about the area (or "not" if you are in a hurry to be out and about in Santa Cruz).

    Perfect location - near Pleasure Point, beautiful beaches, a comfortable bed, good coffee and delicious coffee cake! I used his bike to ride along Cliff drive with awesome views. It was the perfect "get away" for me! Thanks!

  • Pete and Cathy were both fantastic hosts. I only stayed for one night but the place was clean and homely. They shared their knowledge of the local area and give me some fantastic tips for my travel up to San Francisco. They made my stay a very pleasant one! I'd stay there again and I'd recommend them to anyone else who wanted to stay in Santa Cruz. Thank you both for your hospitality!
