About this listing
This charming, newly remodeled studio cottage is your home away from home. It is located behind the main house and is equipped with everything you might need for a short getaway or a long stay. The location is ideal for travelers because we are one mile from the beach, downtown, UCSC, and hiking trails, and one block from restaurants, cafés, natural food store, and a beautiful community garden. For those who don't have cars, you can catch a bus or rent a bicycle right down the street.

Das Studio ist relativ zentral gelegen. Mit dem Auto ist alles innerhalb weniger Minuten zu erreichen. Beim Check-In waren Noelle und Stuyvie sehr flexibel und hinsichtlich der perfekten Beach-Location hatten sie auch noch hilfreiche Tipps.
Für ein paar Nächte geht auch eine Übernachtung zu dritt.
Had a great time at our little cottage. Perfect location , close to everything . Used lot of the recommendations for restaurants from Noelle and Stuyvie , and they were all great . Next time we come to Santa Cruz , this is the studio we want to get again . Thx
The place was great! Close to EVERYTHING from great good, UCSC campus to the Boardwalk - we had all we needed within a walk or short drive. The house was clean, spacious and fit two people with more than enough space. Would definitely stay again when I'm back in Santa Cruz.
Mycket trevligt boende hos Noelle och Stuyvie som vi varmt kan rekommendera till andra. Allting fungerade mycket bra, smidigt att checka in och ut och överlag mycket enkelt att kommunicera med värdarna. Boendet var väl överensstämmande med beskrivning och bilder och var dessutom rent och snyggt. Boendet hade tillgång till en väldigt mysig trädgård som delas med värdparet. Bra boende för familjer med barn. Bra läge i Santa Cruz lugnt men ändå nära till allt. Noelle och Stuyvie hade förberett en guide över Santa Cruz och grannskapet med tips om restauranger och saker att se och göra, mycket användbart och ett trevligt välkomnande.
We loved the place! The neighborhood felt very safe and it was easy to park. It was perfect! Great location! Close to the beach, shopping, health food store, restaurants.
Super cute place! Next to Cafe Brasil for extra bonus points. Would definitely stay again.
Adorable comfortable cottage! My fiancé & I just came back from our mini 4th of July/my birthday weekend from Casita Cruz. Noelle greeted us and was very welcoming when we arrived. The cottage is beautiful, quaint, and had lots of natural lighting. Street parking was always available to us. The host gave plenty of privacy which we very much appreciated. We felt like home during our entire stay.
This little cottage was exactly what we were looking for. Very clean and nicely decorated. I loved the mini kitchen that was fully equipped with the antique stove. The location is near by so many great restaurants! Some which were walking distance .The 15 minute walk to the beach is nice & safe. Definitely a memorable trip to Santa Cruz!
Thank you Noelle & Stuyvie for welcoming us into your home, and for the tasty coffee and creamer! We enjoyed our stay.
About the Host, Noelle And Stuyvie
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.
