About this listing
OCEAN VIEWS, PADDLE BOARDS and all things nice!
Clean, beautiful and close to everything. Steps away from Steamer's Lane, Lighthouse Point and West Cliff Avenue, my house is close to just about everything. The beach is 100 yards away, across the open grassy Lighthouse Field. West Cliff Ave is one of the most amazing places to take a walk or ride your beach cruzer in Santa Cruz - and you are welcome to borrow mine. I have 2 paddle boards, one surfboard and a bike -- all available for your pleasure!
The boardwalk and pier are an easy 10 minute walk or 3 minute drive and downtown santa cruz is a stone's throw away. You can get to all the best sights and restaurants, including the University, in about 5 minutes. Santa Cruz is meant for those who want to enjoy the incredible natural beauty that surrounds us.
My house is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath craftsman style. While the bedrooms can accommodate 6 people, I also have a pullout full size air mattress couch.
Enjoy a gorgeous kitchen that is perfect for entertaining, a dining room table that extends to accommodate more people and a large great room that opens to a patio overlooking the ocean. Plug in your iPod to surround sound speakers throughout the house and sleep in super comfortable beds.
Watch the swells roll in and smell the fresh air from the porch overlooking the ocean or just throw your legs up and watch TV on a comfortable couch in the quiet atmosphere of my home. You will enjoy easy parking, friendly neighbors, wifi, a big TV and a state of the art kitchen. The house is a reverse floor plan so the living space is upstairs while 2 of the bedrooms are downstairs. My neighbors are all friends and friendly.
P.S. Unfortunately I am adamant about not allowing parties at my house. My neighbors don't like the noise or the parking issues and my number one goal is to maintain my relationships with my awesome neighbors. Please don't try to work around this, it is not worth it.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I would love to accommodate you in any way I can.
This place exceeded my expectations. Its a beautiful custom built home in a great neighborhood with every amenity you need to engross yourself in, Santa Cruz lifestyle. You can easily walk/bike to everything you need. Kelly was very thoughtful and easy to deal with. She accommodated my family in many ways and we all want to come back. If your looking for a cheap party shack than don't book here but if you want truly wonderful place to experience Santa Cruz than this is it.
My family and I can't say enough nice things about our stay. From Kelly's warm welcome to us upon arrival to our hassle free departure, we kept telling each other this place is a real find. The house is spacious, the kitchen well equipped and the bedrooms very comfortable. Having the main living space, and master bedroom, up one level works very well; we all loved hanging out in the great room and adjacent deck. We especially appreciated the quiet, good neighborhood location, just a few minutes walk out to West Cliff, but enough away from it to be insulated from all its walkers, joggers, bikes and car traffic. We all said we'd love to stay there again in future.
Kelly made us feel very welcome! She was very helpful, met us when we arrived, showed us around the house and gave us helpful information about the house and area. The house was just as described and pictured on the website. It is located in a great neighborhood, beautiful walk through the park to Steamer Lane. The layout of the house was wonderful for a family of four with two college aged kids. Master bed was super comfortable! We would most definitely stay there again!
This is probably the most beautiful AirBNB we've stayed it. Very open with lots of windows and light and renovated to have a ton of character and really nice touches. The kitchen and living room are connected so it feels like a very large space for multiple people to entertain or feel connected. There are two decks which were very nice to hang out on, though the beach is far enough that you wouldn't really "watch the ocean" from the deck.
It's a pretty short walk to some great beaches and great views and the neighborhood was nice and quite. Everything was clean and well maintained on our arrival and we had all the amenities we needed.
Kelly wasn't really able to meet us mostly due to our complicated schedule. She did leave a packet of information that would be useful to newcomers. The house was clean and put together well.
We had a great stay at this beautiful house! Great house with all the amenities you'd want - large kitchen, great master suite (with a steam shower), etc. Close to the beach (including a dog beach), the Boardwalk, and downtown, we had plenty to do. Kelly was a great host, checking in via text to make sure we were enjoying ourselves.
Great House and location for a week on the beach. Super Kitchen, Four Seasons Shower! Kelly makes it really easy and comfortable for anyone staying in her beautiful home.

About the Host, Kelly
I love to work, to read, and to meet new people. I love the ocean, drinking margaritas with friends, watching basketball and gardening. I like to keep my beautiful house clean and to open my door to friends and family. I love meeting new people and providing a relaxing and comfortable place to stay. I am casual, easy going, curious and friendly. I can help you find your way in Santa Cruz and offer ideas for how to enjoy yourself fully. My favorite part about Santa Cruz is the weather. Come visit!
