About This Listing
We have a second master bedroom with a full ensuite bathroom, so we figured we'd give Air BNB a try. We are just two blocks from downtown Santa Cruz, yet with spectacular views of downtown, the Santa Cruz mountains and Monterey Bay. Walk to the downtown shops and restaurants or take a short drive (or 25 minute walk) down to the Boardwalk, Santa Cruz Wharf or West Cliff Drive. Queen size bed, dual sinks, shower and even a jacuzzi tub are all yours. In addition to the house kitchen, we have an outdoor kitchen in the garden you are free to use. We'll provide s'more fixins and you can roast marshmallows over the fire pit. Come enjoy the best of Santa Cruz and the Monterey Bay area
Update 4/29/2011 - In response to feedback from our guests, blinds have been installed on all windows in the bedroom. Feel free to sleep in!
Our house is a short walk down a pretty steep staircase to downtown Santa Cruz. Lots of restaurants, shops, movie theaters, market, etc. all within a few blocks.
The beach is about a 25 minute walk away.
This was my first experience using AirBnB, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I had a very busy weekend in Santa Cruz with my son's graduation so we were in and out a lot which made the private entrance was perfect. I wish I had more time to linger because the views from the place a beautiful! Maisie was a great hostess and we had an awesome stay. It's a great place to stay and I highly recommend it.
Wow. This place was so amazing! From he view to the fire pit to the jacuzzi tub, I don't want to recommend it because I want to keep it all to myself. Seriously the best on every level!
This room was everything that I look for in an airbnb. Private entrance, master bath, very clean, and great location. Sky and Maisie were very helpful and accommodating in finding things to do in Santa Cruz and in making our stay more enjoyable. Downtown Santa Cruz was right out the door and down the stairs and we were provided with a very comprehensive list of tons of restaurants in the area. I would definitely stay here again given the opportunity!
While Sky and Maisie were mostly out-of-town during our stay, they made my boyfriend and I feel incredibly welcomed with their customized to-do guide for Santa Cruz and surrounding area. Their home (and our room) was private and quiet yet could not be closer to the downtown area. It was a perfect location for us as we wanted nothing but to stroll around and enjoy beautiful Santa Cruz. I could not have been more pleased by our stay.
I have contacted Ski in order to spend the Memorial Day week-end at Santa Cruz with my girlfriend. Ski has answered really quickly and we have exchanged many messages to settle our arrival.
The house is exactly as shown on the pictures and is really well located. Close to downtown, it is really nice when you want enjoy Santa Cruz by walk.
Unfortunately, due to the weather, we were not able to enjoy the fire pit and the outdoor seating. Thankfully, we were allowed to use the indoor kitchen.
We did not meet Ski in person because he was not here during the weekend, but his wife welcomed us very well and was very kind.
Absolutely nothing to complain about, quite the contrary !
We think we have a new home away from home in Santa Cruz!
Fantastic location, friendly host, secure on street parking, private, quiet......and the praises just keep on coming! We will be back!
