About this listing
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.

Just like several of the other top listings who have "gone legit" , We are collecting the tax on arrival until airbnb finishes their new section for city taxes which is piloting in Portland right now! - it's $10/night. Please bring cash at check in :)

2. No pets, no smoking
3.You are welcome to throw a load of clothes in the wash, but we keep the washer dryer hours

4. We have recently been contacted by the city about the transportation taxes due. Just like several of the other top listings who have "gone legit" , we need to start collecting the tax in cash on arrival because airbnb does not have a section where we can add this - it's $10/night. Please bring at check in. Thanks!!
5. For rentals longer than 5 days, a rental contract with me and a security deposit will be required (the amount will be proportionate to the rental term) and a "move out cleaning" will be required. OR... you can pay a cleaning fee of 100 and leave it up to the professionals ;)
Thanks and looking forward to meeting you!
Très chouette maison, belle déco d'une artiste. Michelle est adorable, sa maison est située à un peu près 10 min à pied du centre ville et de la plage. N' hésitez pas!
Michelle was super accommodating, I'm infatuated with her magical home! The room is clean and peaceful, and it's so lovely to see Michelle's artwork all around the house. The backyard is nice and quiet, the perfect place to chill for a few days. The beach is a short walk away, and easy to find. Michelle couldn't do enough to make my stay enjoyable, even taking me to the local organic store which was amazing! Her roommates are really friendly too. All in all a fantastic place to explore Santa Cruz, thank you so much Michelle!
The house of Michelle is like a little museum with nice artworks everywhere. Every corner has it's own unique furnishing. The room is clean and the shower great. Michelle is a very kind person who is really taking good care of everything! You can walk to the beach or rent a bike around the corner. A perfect place to stay if you're visiting Santa Cruz!
Our stay with Michelle was great! My wife and I were in town for a wedding and Michelle's location was perfect for us. We were out with friends most of the time and just used the house for showering and sleeping but the room was great. We slept great and Michelle gave us all the privacy we needed. Thank you Michelle for opening up your home to us.
I stayed at Michelle's place for 2 nights during a little personal retreat to Santa Cruz. I had such a wonderful experience! She was there to greet me at the door and gave me a tour of the house and all of the beautiful art she has there--both hers and other local artists.
The house was warm and welcoming and the backyard is a little oasis of relaxation. The room was perfect for me as well, comfortable bed and lovely decor. She even had homemade chocolate cake waiting on the table.
The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful and very close to downtown.
I would highly recommend her as a hostess for your visit to Santa Cruz!
Michelle greeted me when I arrived and gave me a full tour of the house, including pointing out all of the lovely artwork she has on display throughout. Michelle was also very helpful with restaurant recommendations for the night.
My girlfriend and I played in a sand volleyball tournament in Santa Cruz and Michelle's house was in the perfect location-close to the beach and downtown. We loved her house!

About the Host, Michelle
I am a mixed media artist here in Santa Cruz. I saved up and bought this house with proceeds from my paintings. Someday I might like to own my own B&B. but for now..AirBnB!
