I moved to Santa Cruz for work and stayed here for the ocean. I'm an anthropologist and have travelled extensively in Latin America and Spain.
The host was very helpful and friendly in her emails. Santa Cruz is a very expensive town for rentals. I did not expect, therefore, to find an affordable place that is up to usual standards. I knew that the house was very small and had expected it to be full of character. However, I did not realize that it would be in quite so tumbledown a state. It was so full of small objects that it was not possible to find any living space until I had (carefully) moved a lot of things and put them away. It was, I am sorry to say, very dirty. It took a long time to clean.
Great spot..., felt right at home. The vibe of the house was very peaceful and relaxed. Very centrally located in Santa Cruz with everything from downtown Santa Cruz to the beach/boardwalk very accessible by foot. We would stay here again in a second...
Adorable cottage in a great location. The space was perfect for our needs and the neighbors were very friendly. Marcia was communicative and welcoming. We felt right at home.
My boyfriend and I spent the weekend at Marcia's place and had a fantastic time. She was out of town but the key was easy to get ahold of and the place was clean and ready for us. It is located within walking distance of a great dog beach as well as downtown Santa Cruz if you are willing to walk a little further! The shower is definitely made for small people and the bathroom is ready for an update but it sounds like Maria is on it already. Back yard is also adorable and set up for a nice evening with a fire. Would recommend to anyone or any couple to stay here for a chill weekend in Santa Cruz!
Great little shack! Quaint and quirky. Perfect for quick surf trips from SF! Just bring ur own board. And make it a small board ;)
Marcia's place is super cool. It's perfect sized with a great little backyard to unwind in. I felt right at home. It's easy walking distance to West Cliff, beaches, and the Boardwalk.
Super cute place in a quiet, but central neighborhood. Would definitely stay here again.
This is a great place to stay in Santa Cruz! Convenient to the cliffs, nice quiet neighborhood, cozy and cute. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
Marcia's place was perfect for us! Very comfortable and cozy with everything you need, and in a great location - easily walking distance to the beach and downtown. Parking was easy and we much preferred staying in her hood instead of the busy/commercial hotel area. Marcia was very responsive and left detailed instructions for using/finding things in the house. We would definitely stay again- thanks Marcia!
The house was perfect for two people. It was compact, clean and comfortable. We loved the location and would recommend it to anyone.
It was great to have Marcia stay at my house. She is very friendly and chatty. Communication was great. A perfect house guest.
Marcia has been a great guest to have around. Extremely organised, clean and very easy to engage with. We certainly recommend her to the community
Great tenant! Left everything neat and clean.
It was nice to have them as visitors,they were very friendly. They left everything clean, I recommend them!
Marcia is kind and friendly. Maintained the property in great shape and respected house rules. Definitely recommend Marcia to other hosts
