About this listing

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 with a memory foam topper (very comfortable in my opinion) which can be removed if asked to do so, 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. Bed linens, bath towels (please do NOT take them to the beach), and toilet paper will be provided. You will need to bring beach towels for your use, as I do not provide them. I do not have a coffee pot (I don't drink coffee), but I do have a tea kettle for your use.

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 the couch can be turned into a bed (single) that could accommodate a 3rd person (for a small fee). If you would like the couch made into the bed, please request. It isn't the most comfortable, but it gets the job done :)

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.

We arrived into town a few hours before the listed check in time and Lindsay allowed us to check in early. The listing was clean and everything was in order before we got there. The neighborhood was quiet and within walking distance to a somewhat secluded beach and a short drive away from a little more populated beach. We noticed the neighborhood did not have any street lights but although it was a little creepy still seemed pretty safe.

Lindsey was a great host! Her home is very well located- within walking distance to great beaches, restaurants and bars. It was comfortable for the three of us to stay, and it has a great outdoor area. The house was clean, and had a great homey feel. Lindsey was communicative, helpful, and had some great suggestions for fun places to visit nearby.

Our stay at Lindsay's was great! Ample space for the three of us. She was responsive with any questions we had and gave us a heads up with any concerns. She also left us great suggestions for food and maps to the beach!

Lindsay had everything set for us and made it easy. The place was small, but is as advertised. It had everything we needed for a great beach weekend! The neighborhood was also great as it was a quiet refuse on an otherwise very crowded holiday. The beach nearby had plenty of space compared to the others we drove by in the Santa Cruz area. She also allowed use of some of her handy beach items like chairs and a cooler.

Not for people who want a good nights sleep. Perfect for folks in their teens or 20's needing a crash pad. Packed with 'stuff' My husband & I in our 40's didn't sleep a wink, due to uncomfortable bed:(

Response from Lindsay:
I think the bed is very comfortable. If you read in the details of my place, the bed has a memory foam topper, so it is a softer bed. As far as there being "stuff," this is my home, I live here, so of course there is going to be "stuff". I think you were wanting a vacation rental, not someone's home!

We stayed at the beach cottage and absolutely loved it! It was close to the beach, we walked there every day and the house had everything we needed. The location was perfect; close to shopping and restaurants. The house was clean and simple, shower was small but totally fine! We also enjoyed the little outside yard, although not very private. The house was in quiet little area and we slept good, bed was a little soft for my preference, we did roll in the middle a bit. But overall awesome little gem at a great price!

The place was very nicely situated in South Santa Cruz, was clean and easy to locate. Lindsey had thought of everything, including a map to walk to the beach and the wifi password. It was nice to have a little yard to drink coffee and enjoy the birds!

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).
