Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The garden cottage was perfect for an overnight stopover in Santa Cruz. Loved the modern appliances & setting. Shemeika was helpful & responsive.
    We would have loved to have stayed longer!

  • The cottage was exactly as it was represented in the pictures. Was nice, cozy, clean, and very quiet. The outside patio and kitchen were amazing and we took advantage of using them which really made the meals and relaxing more fun.
    Booking was easy and Shemeika was great at communication and responding to any questions I had.

  • We had a great stay this week at the little cottage in the beautiful garden of Danny and Shemeika. Ideal location. Lovely outside space and despite the rain, we loved our visit to the West Cliff area. Danny, the pizza's in the outside oven and the fresh eggs were a huge treat. Thanks for your flexibility with the kids in the tent.
    For our first airbnb experience it was great I am officially sold!

  • Fantastic cottage a short 20 minute walk to the beach. The hosts have done a beautiful job creating a garden oasis around the cottage. Thanks!

  • My girlfriend and I stayed at Shemeikas cottage for a night and had a great time. The cottage is about 1 mile from the boardwalk and downtown santa cruz, so everything is in walking distance.

  • This little cottage and its surroundings were completely true to form (vis-à-vis all Airbnb photos and reviews) and exceedingly charming and idyllic... The owners have molded their spacious backyard into a lush, inviting, and beautifully landscaped haven- bursting w/ flowers and many inviting, sunny seating areas and a gorgeously-sculpted wood-fired oven and grilling area...
    -And wish we'd had more time to actually take advantage of that particular aspect (as the owner even offered to fire up the oven and make us homemade pizza dough..!)
    -The place is located in a cute, safe, convenient neighborhood- 10+ mins running distance from the ocean..
    -We loved our stay here and would highly recommend it to any friends/couples looking for a beautiful wknd getaway :)

  • Shemeika was an incredible host. My favorite aspects of the cottage were it's huge, well-designed backyard and it's location (walking distance from downtown and the boardwalk).

  • My two daughters and I absolutely loved our one-night stay at Shemeika's cottage. The cottage is cozy, clean, bright during the day, and very dark and quiet at night- perfect for a good night's rest. My older daughter had a very comfortable night on the couch, and we had fresh eggs from the resident chickens to include in our breakfast- an unexpected plus. The warm and sunny yard is sheltered from the wind, but the location is ideal for getting to the beach and to restaurants. One of my favorite AirBnb spots yet.

  • Beautiful place at a great location. Nice and close to downtown, the warf and the Boardwalk. The place is plenty spacious with a bedroom, bathroom, living room and stocked kitchen. Shemeika and her family are very nice and accommodating too. I would definitely stay here again.
