Dore place is a cute, little house within walking distance of cliffs/beach access. We spent mornings watching surfers, afternoons in the nearby Sequoias and evenings walking from the house to restaurants. It is a convenient location to downtown Sant Cruz/the boardwalk/hiking and walking distance to the beach and night life. The house: Basic stuff, lots of kitchen stuff, a shower that comes with instructions :) and firm beds. I don't think you get this place for the house, but the location!

The hideaway is a cozy place with great location to the beach. It was adequate in meeting our needs, but thought it needed a deeper clean. Dore was very responsive to our requests and the place was great for our dog.

Response from Dore:
Thanks for your feedback Tracy. We do a meticulous cleaning between every guest and actually had just had the carpets cleaned a week prior to your visit, sorry it didn't meet up to your standards.

Beautiful house with an amazing location. Host answered ALL our questions every step of the way (and this being our first Airbnb experience, we had a lot!) A couple beaches within walking distance along with many restaurants and shops. Quiet neighborhood with a very laid-back vibe. House had all we needed and was very comfortable and cute! Five stars all the way!!! We LOVED it!!! (Family of five that includes 3 teenagers)

Dore's place was very cozy. Perfect for 3 people. We enjoyed our stay and were happy to be so close to the beach.

This little cottage is a gem. It is perfectly hidden away within a very quiet residential area of Pleasure Point, and close to everything we wanted - the ocean, shops etc. The place was clean and homey and we spent quite a bit of time just hanging outside in the courtyard with our dogs in the evening after watching the sunset at nearby beaches. We felt right at home

The Hideaway has a fabulous location and everything you need for a fun beach stay. It is super convenient to activities and stores and pretty easy to get to once you learn the area a bit. It has a great mix of a quiet residential area and access to places of interest. It works well for a couple adults or with a couple small children. Dore was willing to work with us to accommodate our needs and we appreciated that. The information about the neighborhood and his recommendations were helpful. We'd love to come back.

Longtime California residents working in the music and natural foods fields, we love having a space so close to the water. As a professional musician I'm in several groups playing several styles, my wife is a nutritionist and loves to learn. When we're at the hideaway we spend alot of time outside hiking biking swimming surfing eating etc. We've spent a goodly amount of time in the tropics especially the Caribbean, this is as close as we can get to that here on the mainland!
