Beautiful new private studio apartment above the garage of the main house. Great central Santa Cruz location just 1.5 mi from our sunny, warm Live Oak beaches with easy access to downtown and Capitola.

The space

We've recently renovated our place, and we think you'll be instantly comfortable here, and will enjoy all that Santa Cruz has to offer! You will enter through the garden and access the studio via the strairs. Once inside you will notice the openness and airy feeling of the 450 sq ft studio space which has a full kitchen and beautiful modern bathroom. We provide towels as well as linens for the comfortable queen sized bed. A futon couch folds out to accommodate one extra adult or two children. Washer and dryer is available to those staying 5 nights or more.

Guest access

The full studio is all yours.
There is one parking space in the driveway ( our house is 100ft off the main road) and tons of on street parking.Note: We ask you to park on the street if your car leaks oil as we just poured a new driveway. Thank you.
We provide wifi, access to boogie boards and Wavestorm surf boards. Ask us about where to surf on any given day. We know the best spots for the current conditions.

Other things to note

We are a family of four with two pre-teen kids and a chocolate lab 'Riley'.
He may greet you with a loud bark but is very friendly so fear not.

Erik and Marina's place was great. Very clean and spacious for a studio. Studio had everything you need. Thoughtful touches - they texted us before hand to ask us about dietary restrictions as they leave some small delicious breakfast items. Marina was very responsive via text. Also fast wifi. Very quiet place neighborhood.

Clean, airy well decorated studio apartment with a private entrance in a quiet neighborhood. Very warm gracious host. Full size kitchen with modern gas range and full size refrigerator. The host brought us fresh strawberries, local bread and eggs for us to use for breakfast. She also added a bar of chocolate which was a nice touch. Bathroom was large with a nice large glass shower and big fluffy towels.

Erik and Marina were the most friendly and accommodating hosts I have ever had. They were great for conversation, opened up their home and did everything they could to help. Breakfast was stocked when we arrived and they left us a few local treats as well. The space is perfect and a great price for Santa Cruz. Would highly recommend!

This home is as described in the posting only much better. The owners were gracious and helpful, and the apartment is light, bright, and spotlessly clean. The apartment is well designed and comfortable with a super kitchen, bathroom, and living area. Highly recommended.

Marina was so accommodating. She was quick to respond and the place looked exactly like the ones in the picture. It felt like being at home. She ask us for suggestion on what she could leave in the fridge or if we had any food allergies to give us something to eat in the morning. She even brought us fresh local bread that tasted amazing.
