The space

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.

The cottage was built in 1903 but has been upgraded to satisfy modern lifestyles. Amenities include:

- Fully stocked kitchen with antique O'Keefe and Merritt stove
- Private bathroom with tub
- Queen-size pillow top Simmons Back Care mattress
- Heater
- Cable internet
- 32" LCD/HD TV with HBO
- Shared garden
- Gas barbecue

Guest access

Sorry, but the hot tub is not available to our guests. Feel free to make yourselves comfortable anywhere else in the yard.

Interaction with guests

We respect the privacy of our guests but are always available to answer any questions or give you tips on our favorite spots around town.

Other things to note

We have two very friendly cats who are accustomed to spending time in the cottage. If cats aren't your thing, feel free to show them the door. They are extremely docile and will not try to scratch you.

We enjoyed our stay. It was a very nice place. The hosts were nice and available to us. Parking wasn't bad.

Noelle and Stuyvie were super communicative, and were very helpful with any questions we had. Their place is super cute and nice and secluded, and very spacious for two people. We really enjoyed our stay there!

I've stayed here 3 times, and it's always immaculate. Everything is very comfortable and charming. It's on a quiet cul-de-sac, but next to a park, restaurants and amenities, and transit. Noelle and Stuyvie are available if needed but leave their guests to their own devices. Couldn't ask for anything more!

What a great place! We stayed with our 1 year old, and this turned out to be the perfect home base for our three day visit to Santa Cruz. The unit is private, comfortable, well maintained, and located in a very convenient location. We especially appreciated the extra spacious closet to store all our clothes and baby items and have them out of the way. Noelle was very responsive and friendly, we recommend this place and would like to stay again!

A great spot, 20 min walk to downtown and steps away from several great food joints. While we didn't meet Noëlle & Stuyvie in-person, communications and check-in were super simple. Clean, comfortable, cozy - and well-insulated with a nice space heater! They have all the details down including a local guide summary of their favorite places, a bottle of water in the fridge, full towel sets, big closet, and a fabulous shower with a nifty soap/shampoo/conditioner dispenser. All in all we had a fabulous time - thanks Noëlle & Stuyvie!

Noelle And Stuyvie User Profile

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.
