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.
We spent 3 nights here and loved every minute of it! Such a beautiful space. The garden and outdoor sitting area was a bonus. Great location if you want to spend time downtown as it's just a quick walk there. They also gave great restaurant recommendations! Super quiet with a private entrance. Love!
Gracious friendly host. Space is more than described in profile! A beautiful home with exquisite views of Santa Cruz. Location is great; everything is within walking distance.
this place blows away any hotel I have ever stayed at in Santa Cruz. the location is fantastic and the house/yard is divine.
excellent hosts as well!
I aspire to stay here every time I am in town :)
I appreciated Sky's help in adjusting our departure date. He and Maisie provided a helpful list of Santa Cruz restaurant recommendations, and checking in was easy. The guest quarters were large, bright, and comfortable. It was handy to have room to spread out and hang clothes in the closet. The location above Pacific Avenue was extremely convenient, but we didn't feel safe taking the stairs home from downtown at night because of the men who congregated at the top.
Wonderful home with great views and exceptionally patient and accommodating owners. If you need to be near downtown Santa Cruz then this is the place. You can actually fall out the front door and down the stairs and be at the clock tower.
We had an absolutely lovely time! The location couldn't be better. The morning we got up to walk into town for coffee and a movie was the best. So enjoyed sitting outside and writing in my journal while enjoying the views... And the bed was amazingly comfortable.... And the hot tub in the bathroom was much needed after the world dance class we took!
This is a beautiful Mediterranean home. The suite was private with its own entrance and outdoor seating area. The jacuzzi tub was luxurious and the bed was very comfortable. We made use of the outdoor wood fired oven and grill and cooked a delicious dinner which we enjoyed under the stars. We were able to walk to verve coffee and shops and were a short drive away from the boardwalk and beaches. A great place to stay!
