Other Things to Note

The city of Santa Cruz requires that all Airbnb hosts collect an 11% Transient Occupancy Tax (same as hotels). As Airbnb at this time does not have a way in which to collect this tax as part of your fees, I ask my guests upon departure, to please leave 11% of their room charge, either by cash or check, in order to pay this tax to the city of Santa Cruz. I apologize ahead for the inconvenience. Thank you!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • We had a lovely stay at Noreen's place and had a chance to meet her upon our arrival. She was very friendly and great at online communication. Her house is in a beautiful location and very close to the university campus. The place was very clean and had everything we needed. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Santa Cruz :)

  • We really, really enjoyed our stay at Noreen's place. The room is big, cosy, well-equiped and quite clean, and having your own entrance is a plus in terms of privacy.
    Noreen and her husband were away when we stayed, but from the booking on, they were easy to reach, they answered every question we had, and they made sure we were going to enjoy our stay.
    Let's make it simple: everything was nice and fine, and this BnB delivers on everything it promises.
    We strongly recommend this place!

  • This was exactly as advertised. Very comfortable bed. Clean conditions. Very close to UCSC campus. I would recommend this to anyone that needs to be close to campus for a few days.

  • Noreen's apartment is lovely. It's right at the foot of the University of Santa Cruz, and an easy hop to downtown for anything else you might want to do. The bed was SUPER comfortable, and I woke up to doves cooing outside each morning. Clean, quiet, and super convenient!

I'm 55+, married, and have 3 adult daughters. My passions are walking, studying Italian language, my family, and traveling... especially to explore Italy. I live by the "Golden Rule" which has worked out well so far.
