My daughter and I had a beautiful experience in Alex's yurt. Alex was the perfect host. He showed us around and made sure we had everything we needed. He had some food and snacks for us, which was extremely thoughtful. The yurt is very spacious, perfectly clean and located just a few blocks away from the ocean.
I will definitely visit again.
I highly recommend Alex's yurt for a unique and fun experience.
Alex was terrific - ! He met us with a friendly, sincere greeting and gave us a tour. He offered assistance with anything and was the perfect host. We really enjoyed him and our stay in this AirBnB yurt in Santa Cruz and would love to stay again.
It was a cozy, inviting space with good light and a nice bed, good pillows and warm comforter and extra blankets. The kitchen worked well for and included a lovely table and chairs for us to enjoy the space. Our grandson loved visiting us and didn't want to leave!
This was our first yurt experience and it was very positive. For us it was a charming home away from home.
The reservation was canceled 56 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Alex was a wonderful host full of charm and helpful information. He even surprised us with cake and candles after learning we were celebrating a birthday. The neighborhood is beautiful and in an excellent location. We rode our bikes along West Cliff drive and enjoyed easy access to downtown and beaches. The yurt itself was cool and comfy and perfectly suited our laid back and eclectic style. This is the best accommodation for the price I've seen.
My husband and I had a fantastic weekend in Laura's yurt! The inside is completely charming, and the location is great. The yurt is spacious and felt very private. She was a very thoughtful host and left us some delicious gluten free treats to enjoy for breakfast. We would absolutely come back for another relaxing weekend in Santa Cruz!
This yurt was a great weekend getaway spot! It was funky and had a great vibe, which is just what we were looking for on a trip to Santa Cruz. The location is also great- walking distance from a lot of places (wineries, breweries, and restaurants) and not too far from the boardwalk either. Laura and Alex were very accommodating and made sure we knew how to reach someone in case we needed anything.
Laura and her son Alex are so sweet and made us feel very welcome! The yurt was so fun, had everything we needed and such a great Santa Cruz location.
