House - Entire home/apt · 14th Ave, Santa Cruz, CA 95062, United States

The Space

Reservation for our lovely studio are accepted under the new owners listing in airbnb under the exact same name: Private Studio by the Beach in SC. Please do not try to book it through me. I am no longer at this address.
While I am not longer managing it, the studio retains all its charm and the new owners, Lindsay and Matt are great hosts.

One block from Twin Lakes Beach, in a GREAT neighborhood, this studio has all the amenities including large jacuzzi tub to soak in after a day of playing at the surf or hiking in one of the many gorgeous trails Santa Cruz has to offer.

Two miles from downtown, three from Capitola, walking distance to yoga studios, coffee shops and fine eateries. Our place also offers indoor and outdoor kitchenettes with everything you need to prepare your own meals and lots of gorgeous outdoor deck space to enjoy.

Free Wi-Fi internet, washing machine and dryer, and Queen bed sleeps two. There is a couch, which is not a sleeper couch but many guests have found it comfortable. TV/DVD with Cable connection , warm gas fireplace make this studio great for cozy evenings.

Please read what our previous guests have posted. This is a lovely place and we are thrilled to be able to share it with others.

Please Note; This is a NO- SMOKING property. Both inside the studio and outside the grounds and driveway. Take this into account if you decide to stay with us.

About our rates: We have a cleaning fee of $35.00. The nightly rate increases a bit (to $115 a night ) on main holidays. Even so, guests let us know constantly that this is the best deal in town. But don't take our word for it. Please read the reviews.

***Important: Please e-mail us a bit about yourself when you first inquire about the accommodations... either before or at the time you book. Although the studio is very private, we like to know who will be sharing our space, so we ask guests to share a little bit about themselves before they make a reservation. You will not accept it till you do, please...

One more thing: although we love them, we cannot have animals in the property and we cannot make exceptions. Please, don't brake our heart because we will have to say no.

We love sharing our space and making so many people happy!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great place to go if you want to be close to the beach and have a relaxing stay. Having a car would be recommended for getting around town.

  • Beautiful place to stay!! The apartment was perfect! Loved the gardens, patio and the apartment. The beach is a short walk and the views are spectacular. Ruth's place was clean and neatly kept.

  • My girlfriend and I had a lovely time at Ruth's studio. It is very cute, very clean, and very private. There is also a beautiful back yard that's perfect for wine in the evening or tea in the morning, and the place is literally steps away from a lovely beach.

    We'll definitely be staying again!

  • We really enjoyed our stay in Santa Cruz. Ruth is a welcoming host who made sure we had everything we needed. The studio is lovely - the bed was very comfortable, the shower was great and it was wonderful to have so much outside space to enjoy. The studio is very private and quiet. The beach is a short walk away and it was very easy to get in and out of downtown Santa Cruz without relying on our car. Any Europeans who are thinking of staying here and are not used to driving as much as Americans do may be pleased to know that the studio is very close to a couple of bus stops that take you to downtown Santa Cruz in a matter of minutes! We would definitely recommend Ruth and her studio to others.

  • Unfortunately we did not get a chance to meet personally, however Ruth made sure that everything was in best order for our arrival. The appartment is exactly as described on airbnb and has a very relaxing and cozy feel to it. We had a great time and will definitely stay again next time we are in Santa Cruz.

I live in beautiful Santa Cruz where I practice medicine, hike, kayak , play (badly) my guitar and overall have a good life. I travel extensively (for business and pleasure) and I love to be able to stay with "real" people anytime I can. :)
