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!

We had a lovely stay at Ruth's place. The studio was clean and cozy. Ruth was very responsive and welcoming.
What a great time my wife and I just experienced at Ruth's studio! The location is terrific for walks on the beach, exploring downtown Santa Cruz and Capitola, watching elephant seals north on Highway 1, and so much other fun enjoyments easy to find along the coast.
Ruth warmly greeted us upon arrival, and her studio (and spacious back patio) are exactly as portrayed in the photographs. Without hesitation we will stay here again, and highly suggest you consider doing the same.
Great location with everything you could need for a nice little get away. Ruth wasn't home while we were there but called to make sure we had everything we needed and let us know we could call anytime.
The location of this studio was great. We had a very nice little trip here and really enjoyed the beach nearby. Ruth was welcoming and helpful.
Great location near the beach with all the amenities we needed for our 3-day stay. It was great to have a place to do laundry during our trip down the CA coastline. And we also recommend the Mexican place up the block. :)
We had a great time staying in Ruth's private studio in Santa Cruz. The location was perfect, a block a way from the beach and a short drive to everything Santa Cruz has to offer. The studio was clean, cozy, and very private. We didn't get to meet Ruth, as she was out of town, but we felt welcomed regardless. A big thumbs up, would definitely stay here again given the opportunity.
This was a great place to stay, fully equipped with all the small touches in a comfortable, spacious environment. My fiancee and I brought our road bikes and it was very easy and convenient to leave right from Ruth's place and ride for several hours in any direction over the 4 night stay. Quiet, relaxing, private and cozy!! Thank you Ruth for making our much needed get-a-way just right! =) We will definitely be back!
Ruth's studio is a most comfortable and convenient place to stay in the Santa Cruz area. Your quarters are private and as Ruth so aptly puts it "welcome to a small piece of paradise". The area is very nice and just a "skip" to the beach. Everything you might need is stocked in this studio for cooking relaxing and enjoying your stay.
We would easily recommend this charming place to anyone wanting to stay in Santa Cruz.
What an amazingly charming studio in a great location - this was just one of those Airbnb experiences that you really look for, a home away from home. The back garden is like a Zen retreat, complete with an outdoor tub and tons of peaceful little nooks and crannies.
The studio itself was well-decorated, spotless and perfect - and the beach being only one block away is pretty great, we parked the car and just rode out bikes around SC while we were there - though it's below Ruth's house it felt very private, like our own little cottage.
Ruth was communicative about check-in and check-out.
Overall, really enjoyed our stay and would love to return soon!
We stayed seven nights and had a wonderful experience. Read the reviews they all ring true. Great location, great locals beach, and a lovely place to relax. We can't wait to get back!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
