The Santa Cruz spacious ground floor suite with a private bathroom, queen bed, in a wonderfully, bright and open house on the upper west side of Santa Cruz, with the option of an additional room adjoining and full second bath. It is perfect for a weekend getaway or even a long-term stay. The room itself has plenty of light, windows and allows for direct access to the garden and deck.

This is a quiet, safe neighborhood with a parking space in the driveway or in front of the house. There is also public transportation one block away. Santa Cruz is also a very bike friendly town and we have plenty of space for you to store bikes if you choose to bring them!
Santa Cruz has so many fun things to do and everything is very easy to get to from our location! We are walking distance from UCSC and Pogonip walking trails, a short drive down to Natural Bridges State Park, West Cliff Drive, Steamers Lane, Cowell's Beach, the Boardwalk and the Wharf.

Interaction with Guests
We do not like to impose our presense on our guests, but they are welcome to join us in all we have going on, ie, share a glass of wine, talk over what there is to do at the present time in the area, or just walk them through the entertainment electronics.
Area is quiet, safe, and is very walkable with friendly people all around. We are located so that you can bike, hike or walk from the front door to get to as many places of interest as there are in the area.
The public bus system is at the end of the street. It will take you across the county. There is also www.zipcar.com, nearby, if you are carless, which is a sweet way to have a vehicle when you need one for a not bad price.
Other Things to Note
We do have an organic garden so we do not allow dogs.
We are a very friendly household and look forward to your stay. We ask that you leave everything as you found it and treat our home with respect. We ask that you take off your shoes when you enter and respect the quiet after 10 pm . No: smoking or shoes in the house.
About the Host, Marlene And Daryl
Live the life you Love. Don't wait because time is the only thing we really have - enjoy it!
I love honesty, all the plants that grow, my Great Daughters, sleeping in till 8 o'clock, fresh baked anything! Michael McDonald, Susan Tedeschi & Daryl Truck, Joni Mitchell, Atlas Shrugged, Alaska, cruising(not sailing), Veuve Clicquot, Sun, rain and snow, skiing, biking ----- well I try to find good things in even the boring stuff like scrubing the sinks.
I love to travel and discover places and things. Love staying in a house rather than a resort. Love to meet the people in the community and really get to know the area. Visit the markets I only buy things when I travel, clothes, shoes and what ever and love to collect shells, have a pretty good collection now!!
