The Space

Fully Furnished 1 bedroom cottage on the Eastside of Santa Cruz. Close to desirable Pleasure Point, shopping,coffee shops, and restaurants. Less than a 5 min. walk to nice sandy beach! There is a queen size bed, stand up shower, wireless internet, cable TV, washer & dryer, refrigerator, stove w/ oven, microwave, toaster oven, and fenced private sunny yard. Public transit is within walking distance.

My neighborhood is very quiet and the cottage is off a main road, so there isn't much traffic.

My cottage is 3.7 miles to down town Santa Cruz (Pacific Ave), 3.8 miles to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, 1.8 miles to Capitola Village, and .2 miles to a local market.

The outside looks a little old, but the inside was recently remodeled


I book up to 3 months in advance. Do to my schedule, I can only rent out on weekends unless otherwise noted in my calendar.

I would prefer 2 people, but I do have a pull out (single) couch that could accommodate a 3rd person (for a small fee). If you would like the couch made into the bed, please request.

I have a dog that lives with me. He will NOT be at the house while you stay there. Just want to let everyone know just in-case of any allergies.

  • Lindsay's beach cottage was awesome! Perfect for two people, private and super close to a beautiful beach! I would absolutely stay here again and I'm recommending it to everyone! Thank you Lindsay!

  • The perfect little treasure. We loved it. Lindsay was a gracious and responsive host.

  • My girlfriend & I enjoyed a weekend in this cozy place on a quiet street. It's an easy walk to Pleasure Point even with wetsuits on and carrying surfboards. Was great to leave the car parked all weekend and bike around from this convenient base. Lindsay took the initiative to email & text to make sure we were all set.

  • This was my first time using airbnb and it was fantastic. Walking distance to the beach. cozy cottage feeling. Nice bright yellow and orange towels. lovely location to get away. Came down initially to relax in Santa Cruz, but also explored Capitola which was a treat.

    Overall would definitely stay here again.

  • Lindsay's place was wonderful! The location is perfect and is only a few blocks from the beach. Very clean place and she has an AWESOME (and eclectic) music selection. The cottage was the perfect size for my boyfriend and I, and the bed was comfortable.
    Lindsay was also very responsive and provided maps for more secluded beaches.

  • lindsay is a great host. my daughter was running her first half marathon and lindsay's home was perfect. my daughter had a comfortable bed for a good nights rest and the beach was a short walk away.

    lindsay left us a comfortable home for the night. thank you.

  • Lindsay was super responsive and nice. Her place was convenient and clean. I would recommend it to a couple looking for a place that is centrally located and a good value in Santa Cruz.

  • Staying at this beach cottage is a little like borrowing a place from you sister--that is if your sister is kind and very neat.
    It's not amazingly appointed, it is a comfortable little beach cottage. You can tell that somebody actually lives there, but it is spotless.
    L______ is very responsive by text. I had questions about checking-in, where to eat, etc. and she got right back to me every time, and never seemed put out in the slightest.
    She was even thoughtful enough to leave printout maps to nearby beaches for us.
    The only negative was that the sofa bed was pretty uncomfortable, but, it is a sofa bed--and having said that, I did sleep right through the night. Chances are you are a single person or a couple and will never need to use it anyway.

  • Great little house by the beach!

    Lindsay is a great host, very helpful with the right amount of information.

    I'd definitely recommend this to a friend looking for a nice spot for the beach.

I am a middle school teacher. I love the beach which is why I choose to live here! I have a small dog (will not be at house), which I like to take on walks along East Cliff (which is really close to cottage).
