The Space

Come and enjoy this comfortable beach home in an ideal location just a few blocks from the scenic and world famous West Cliff Drive. A big room with a brand new queen sized bed, cable TV w/HBO, your own private bathroom, full kitchen and a sunny backyard with gas BBQ, outdoor dining and a hot tub.

This clean home has nice furniture, very comfortable couches and bed, private parking and all the amenities to make you feel right at home. Coffee, filtered water, towels, toiletries provided. Plus, you'll have the peace of mind knowing that the house is solar powered.

The westside of Santa Cruz is known for it's world class waves, beautiful scenery and a laid back community. This home puts you right in the heart of the best neighborhood in Santa Cruz (my opinion). Walking distance to West Cliff drive - where you can walk/bike along the best oceanfront path our city has to offer Also, walk to grocery shopping, variety of restaurants, wine tasting, coffee shops and pub. One mile from Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Located on the bus line that can take you a short distance to downtown.

About your host - I am a professional male. I am very clean, respectful and work all day. The home is yours to enjoy as I will be working weekdays. I will give your all the privacy you need, but also provide all the knowledge you need about the area as I grew up in Santa Cruz and can answer any inquiries you'd have.

You won't be disappointed with this ultra-comfortable room and a house you will immediately feel at home in. Can't wait to meet you!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • We stayed with Sean for two weeks, while on a business trip. His home was exactly as promised: spacious, clean, convenient, and s-o-o-o wonderfully close to the beach! Sean was the quietest and most non-intrusive of hosts, yet, was just a phone call away if we needed something. His home was perfect for our needs---my favorite area was his lovely little back garden and hot tub. He communicated really well with us and it was a pleasure meeting him. Hope we can stay with you again when we are back in Santa Cruz, Sean! Thank you for everything :)

  • Nice, clean, and comfortable place within easy walking distance of two beaches and a park. Sean was very quiet and courteous. He offered to adjust the house temperature for me, left open shelves in the refrigerator, and gave me free run of the place, including his lovely patio area with its friendly feline visitor. The high speed wireless worked perfectly.

    The bathroom contained shampoo, conditioner, and body wash and there was hand gel by the sink, though no bars of soap.

    Although the house is located by two busy streets with a lot of traffic, the room itself opens into a private courtyard and is quite quiet. Parking was adequate on the Delaware side of the house.

    The neighborhood is unusually beautiful and safe with well-maintained houses and cultivated yards. It's an ideal place for walking.

    The one issue I had with the location was that the house is located close to Mission Street. This is one of the main arteries leading in and out of Santa Cruz and gets a tremendous amount of use. To drive four miles to my destination routinely took me half an hour because of the traffic and multiple street lights. I'd recommend walking as much as possible or renting/bringing a bike.

    The next part of the review isn't meant to be good or bad. This was my first stay in an AirBNB and I wasn't sure what to expect. So if you're new to the whole process, here are some things to know.

    1. Bring a cup to use in the bathroom.
    2. Bring a power strip. There are enough outlets for one person, but two people would have difficulty powering up all of their electronics.
    3. Bring tissues
    4. Be aware that there's really no office workspace. While there are small tables and lamps on either side of the bed, neither of them are suited for typing on a laptop. I ended up using the patio table for most of my work.
    5. There are no hotel amenities, so be sure that you bring your shampoo, conditioner, lotion, hair dryer, etc. There's a supermarket and a pharmacy in a shopping center a few blocks away, and it is easy to get what you need there.

    Overall, this is a great place to stay and one which I'd highly recommend.

  • I stayed here one night with my sister while we were in town visiting some friends. Sean was very easy to coordinate with for our short stay. The room was clean and the queen bed was very comfortable. There was wi-fi internet connection with good speed. He even had shampoo, conditioner, and body wash in the shower and towels were also provided. He also told us we could make use of the living room if we wanted but we just went to bed and woke up early to leave the next morning. I would stay here again if we're back in town.

  • This was my first experience using Airbnb and it lived up to the positive feedback that I'd heard. Sean was a responsive and gracious host. The house and the room were as they were described and the location was great! I'd definitely stay here again. Thanks!

  • I really enjoyed Sean's place. It is in a great location near the ocean, well furnished, and Sean is a great host. I hope to stay here again.

  • The accommodations were simple, clean, and comfortable. Nothing fancy, but a good value for the price, and the location was central and convenient. The picture is honest (what you see is what you get). Sean and I barely saw each other, but he made me feel welcome when I arrived and allowed me plenty of privacy. This was my first experience with airbnb, and I was very satisfied. It will probably be the first place I check for accommodations the next time a travel, based on this experience.

  • Sean is very friendly and accommodating. Place was clean and true to description. Location was great and close to a park and the cliffs.

    May 2014
  • Had never done airbnb and Sean set the bar high. The whole house was immaculate and had just the right beachy vibe to help you check out of reality. Bedroom was super clean and tidy as well as the bathroom. You just won't be disappointed with Sean's hospitality and the distance of the beach from the front door.

    May 2014
  • This listing was spot-on: close to the fabulous cliff-side trail and beach access, clean, comfortable, and totally sufficient. Sean made both arrival and departure super-smooth and was easy to communicate with.

    May 2014
  • Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful home. Beautiful and spacious (and with a great hot tub!) in a nice neighborhood. Sean was great at accommodating us, even though we didn't interact with him that much.

    Would highly recommend to anyone staying in Santa Cruz for a few nights!

Hi I'm from Santa Cruz and moved back here after college. A few years later I bought my home. I love to surf and be near the ocean so the location is perfect. I really enjoy being active, working out and working in the garden.
