Come stay in our adorable guestroom in a restored 40's CA Bungalow by the BEACH!
We are located in a safe, quiet family neighborhood - minutes from Westcliff Beaches and Cowell's surf spot, but also a quick walk to downtown Santa Cruz! The little guest room is in the house with us :) The house is really big but cozy and insulated, with hardwood floors and designer bath, and a LARGE kitchen (you have your own mini pantry and a shelf in the fridge while you are here). Also featured is a budding collection of art by local Bay Area artists (including me), a concrete zen bathing tub, and 3 late 20's, early 30's professionals ready to point you toward the best restaurants, coffee shops, beaches, and music venues in Santa Cruz.
- wireless internet
-size FULL mattress
-cable in the living room
-a vast collection on vinyl to listen to during your stay
An organic egg and pancake breakfast (cooked by me!) is available for $15 for 1 or $20 for 2 - served in the garden when it's nice out..
The house is clean and mold free, no pets, no smoking
Michelle's house is like a gallery--starting from the tour she gave us, introducing us to the various pieces (including some of her own) by different (and mainly) local artists, to the interior holiday decoration. The house and the room we stayed in were clean, warm, and cozy. We enjoyed sitting and reading in her living room. She is friendly and helpful in pointing us to different things we can see/visit in town. Highly recommended!
Michelle is a terrific hostess! I've stayed twice in her home. Very cozy and artsy, indeed.
I had a wonderful stay, thanks to Michelle who is very attentive with guests and a wonderful counselor to discover Santa Cruz, his house is beautifully decorated, made by her with remarkable taste, I love it! more she cooks chocolate cookies, delicious :) A great place to spend a quiet moment and discover Santa Cruz, the beach is right next door, just perfect!
My friend and I stayed at Michelle's while in town for a concert. The room was very clean and we loved how close it was to downtown. We were able to walk to Front St. in 10-15 minutes. I would stay with Michelle again.
Michelle was very nice and welcoming. Her home is a fantastic artist's playground! Very cool backyard space and great central location.
Michelle's place was awesome. Michelle is an artist and we got a tour of her whole house and all the different pieces of art work in it. It was nothing like he east coast style and my hubby and I really enjoyed the different culture of Santa Cruz. Michelle made us tea on our arrival and a really yummy gluten free almond bar thing with fresh caramelized pear on top:) we felt safe and comfortable at her home for our one night stay:) thanks Michelle.
Michelle was an excellent host and made me feel very welcome in her home. The house is so comfortable and beautifully decorated - all the art work is amazing. The location was convenient and the house a great place to go off exploring Santa Cruz. I would love to visit again soon!
Michelle is great!!
Very welcoming, even some fresh fruit on arrival. She has a very cozy house with some great art. Michelle is more than happy to give you some local advice and has a lot of interesting things around her house.
I enjoyed my time at Michelle's.
michelle is such a great host! her home is one big piece of art. you always discover different pieces of artwork. we felt fantastic in our room.
michelle was very caring. she even drew us a little map with all of santa cruz's attractions. and: we loved the cookies!! :)
Michelle is a warm, courteous host. She can offer plenty of recommendations on local beaches and good wine bars. Her house, in a great location, is a work of art in itself, and the garden a quiet, beautiful place to unwind after a day of swimming or surfing. The bed is a bit on the short side, but that aside, nice and comfy.
