Mima was an absolute pleasure. She is unbelievably friendly and helpful with tips for the area. The house is spacious and cozy and the bedroom sufficient. Would definitely return.
Mima and the neighborhood are fantastic. We had a beautiful stay and loved the stroll through the gorgeous beach neighborhood to the long, sandy beach.
The bunny, super sweet dog and Mima are all precious and worth a visit just to meet them!
Mima is a doll! We so enjoyed our stay. First, she welcomed us with fresh strawberries and a hand-written list of great things to do in the area. I couldn't wait to get up in the morning and feed the adorable angora bunny (who looks like a live teddy bear) strawberry tops! (all with Mima's permission, of course!)
We enjoyed coffee that was ready at a push of a button. We also enjoyed the hot tub and beautiful side deck and back yard during early mornings and after our day. We really loved having a shelf in the fridge to make breakfast in the morning.
The location is great. Super quiet, easy walk to the beach and so many stars at night!
We were able to enjoy an evening with Mima, drinking wine and chatting about the Santa Cruz and Aptos area. We really enjoyed our stay! And will be back! Thanks Mima!!
Mima was lovely, as was her home! The pictures were spot on, and the neighborhood was so pleasant. She gave us the right amount of space and was very helpful with any questions we had. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a nice stay in Aptos.
I was grateful to find this air B and B on short notice for my stay in Santa Cruz and it was perfect for all of my needs as an out of town student taking a weekend workshop. The hostess was very welcoming and her place is in a nice residential neighborhood just south of Santa Cruz. It is quite close to a beautiful beach. I didn't have time to enjoy it, but did enjoy my sunset walk just above it through the neighborhood. The room was nice, the bed comfortable and Mima was a gracious host who shares much of her common spaces with guests including the kitchen, back and front yard and hot tub. I felt like I could have as much space or contact as I wanted. I had a sense of being hosted nicely.
Mima really is an exceptionally amazing host. She is a very warmhearted and open minded woman. Mima always tried to make sure I was comfortable yet not to get herself too much into my plan for the evening. She suggested nice restaurants around but in the end we spent the evening drinking wine and talking about many things in life. It was really a pleasure getting to know her :)
Her house is really cozy and quiet, so a perfect stay to get some rest.
