We had a great time in this Santa Cruz cottage, the description is accurate, it's cozy and the backyard is very nice. What a joy to have breakfast, lunch and dinner outside!
Location is great, it was easy to get to the boardwalk and we got to try two beaches (4-mile and Capitola).
Absolutely lovely, beautiful light inside and garden outside. Quiet neighborhood. Would happily choose to stay again .
We had a lovely time staying here. Everything was just as described. We'd definitely stay here again!
We had plenty of privacy but when we acknowledged our hosts they were happy to chat which was nice, had a long chat to Shemeika's husband about his work which was interesting. It was lovely being somewhere rural and where everyone lives , a well appointed place with a beautiful garden. A nice cottage with everything in it you needed, ideal for 2.
Had a beautiful one Week Stay in this nice, cosy cottage in Santa Cruz. Enjoyed the beautiful garden as well. THX
Head of our trip, Shemeika was very good about communicating with my questions. She let us know exactly how to enter the little cottage prior to our arrival. My friend and I had a great time sitting in the comfortable main room and peering out to the garden and the gorgeous outdoor kitchen. We only briefly saw her husband but I'm sure they would have been super helpful if we needed anything. The location was great because we could walk 1 easy/safe mile down to shops/cafes/restaurants. If we would have stayed longer we would have taken advantage of the kitchen and outdoor space more. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. I would definitely book with them again!
My husband, 10 year-old daughter and I spent 4 days at the cottage, and it was the perfect set up for our needs. We had brought an air mattress for my daughter, but she ended up just sleeping on the couch and said it was very comfortable.
We brought most of our food with us so as not to spend a lot of money eating out, and I really appreciated having a full size refrigerator to put everything in. The kitchen was well stocked with all the basics: dishes, pots and pans, can opener, tea kettle, etc.
My husband enjoyed learning how to use the pizza oven. Thank you so much for your hospitality!
