Awesome studio. Cozy, clean and beautiful inside and out. Noelle and Stuyvie were very nice and accommodating. Definitely recommend!
We absolutely loved staying at Noelle and Stuyvie's beautiful studio and we highly recommend it to any Santa Cruz visitors! The studio itself is comfortable and well-appointed, and the garden right outside is a lovely spot to enjoy some sunshine. The location is perfect; it is in walking distance to some great restaurants, and an easy drive to local attractions. Noelle and Stuyvie were kind, gracious, and friendly hosts (and we highly recommend paying a visit to Lupulo, the craft beer house they own in Santa Cruz!). We loved our weekend stay at Casita Cruz!
This studio was cute, cozy and immaculate. Great Westside location -- super short drive to campus, downtown and Natural Bridges. Hosts gave us lots of privacy, made things easy and comfortable.
Noelle and Stuyvie's place is a perfect location for exploring Santa Cruz. We were able to walk to many great restaurants. The place itself was clean and had everything we needed for a weekend away. It was private and even has a nice garden area to hang out in. I would definitely stay here again!
Had a great time! Location was great, room was just as described with everything we needed for a weekend getaway. Hosts were very accommodating & friendly. Would definitely consider returning the next time we're in Santa Cruz.
Excellent lodging and value, great location, great hosts. Clear instructions, made it easy for us. Would definitely stay again. Perfect for a Santa Cruz weekend.
We have lived in Santa Cruz for the last ten years and every day we feel fortunate to call this beautiful town our home. We still love to explore local hidden treasures and indulge in the region's bountiful outdoor activities. You can also find us scoping out new eateries and hangout spots. With deep connections to France and Mexico (Noëlle was the first person in her family born in the US and Stuyvie was born and raised in Mexico City), as well as numerous traveling adventures throughout the world, we feel a kinship with travelers and are excited to share what we know about the region with them.
Noëlle is the Director of Education Programs at a non-profit that concentrates on local wetland conservation and Stuyvie teaches Sociology and Latin American/Latino Studies at UCSC. Passions include the outdoors, urban culture, international food, craft beer, small-batch bourbon, soccer, and playing music together.
