My fiancé and I arrived around 6pm on our arrival date. The directions were perfect -- very easy to find. The cottage was exactly as described and photographed on the website. Christine welcomed us with a sweet card, fresh fruit, and bottle of wine. Everything was clean and organized. We loved being able to walk to Capitola Beach and downtown Capitola. We were able to Uber to my friend's wedding in Capitola the following day -- and even were close enough to walk back. Christine's location was perfect and exactly as described.
Cute cottage. Sweet note awaiting us on our arrival. Christine was attentive to anything we needed. We recommend it. If you are looking for a conveniently located low-key cottage in Santa Cruz, Christine's is it!
Our hostess, Christine, was most gracious in preparing for out stay. There was complimentary fruit and other items upon our arrival. (adding to that, one morning, warm and freshly baked scones)
She left many sufficient notes / memos for use of all appliances, electronics, etc. The cottage was warm and inviting, with its bright and beachy vintage decor. Everything was very clearly accessible. Christine was very attentive to any needs that might occur during our stay. We loved our time there.
As previous posts have said, Christine has thought of everything to make the stay as comfortable and easy as possible. Everything was very clean and tidy, and the little extras like the bottle of wine made our stay a great introduction to America!
Christine's Cottage was the perfect spot for my sister and her husband who came to visit from Colorado. My home isn't able to accommodate all the visitors so this was the right option. Since I reside less than a mile from the cottage, Christine invited me to pay an advance visit to bring a few welcome goodies for my family. The location was nearby to shopping and sight seeing.
My sister and brother in law found the bed comfortable, and enjoyed the morning coffee and Christine's very tasty, freshly baked maple scones. Yum!
Thanks Christine for making them feel welcome!
My wife and I stayed at Christine's Cottage for a couple of nights on our annual trip to the California Coast. Christine and her cottage were both wonderful. She was very friendly and even baked us a little treat during our stay. Everything was clean and tidy. The bed was comfy too, which is always a big plus.
My stay at Christine's Cottage was absolutely delightful! From the moment I walked-in to find a hand-written welcoming note to the day that I left, there were little pleasant surprises of thoughtfulness.
The cottage and its furnishings were very clean and comfortable. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. Although I did not go to the beach, I could sense it nearby and feel the ocean air in the breeze. The atmosphere of the Cottage was one of sanctuary and nourishment.
I was also extremely appreciative of the flexibility in making some unexpected changes in my reservation. I remain deeply grateful for Christine's kindness and responsiveness; and I will definitely revisit the Cottage next time I stay in the Santa Cruz area.
My wife, my son, and I immensely enjoyed Christine's Cottage!
1. Parking was great. Off the street, in her driveway, near the entrance.
2. The room was great. Recently updated, light, cool, functional, and welcoming. The ceiling fan efficiently cooled the room down when it was hot and the space heater was available (it never got cold lol)
3. The accommodations were amazing. The Nespresso machine was a lifesaver in the morning and we absolutely loved Christine's scones. Everything is there - dishes, plates, silverware, empty containers, etc. We truly felt like coming home after an adventure in Santa Cruz. The bed was comfy, the TV was great (cable and Netflix), and everything about the cottage was just perfect.
4. Christine is a great host. She is communicative and prompt to respond to our needs. We absolutely loved staying at this place due to her immense hospitality.
Thanks, Christine! If we're ever in the area, we're definitely coming to you!
Christine's Cottage is adorable and very inviting! Christine was kind enough to accommodate us and our three dogs, which really appreciated. She even left us an extra blanket for the dogs! When we first arrived, I found a card she left us with some notes and suggestions as well as an invitation to enjoy a bottle of wine, which we did. She was also very easy to get a hold of when I had a question. Her place is not too far from Seabright Beach, which is dog-friendly as long as they're on-leash. This was our first overnight trip taking the dogs with us and it was our first Airbnb experience. The bar is set fairly high now! We really enjoyed our time at Christine's Cottage and look forward to visiting again!
So glad we stayed here. Christine was a very gracious host, even baking us scones the next morning. Everything is laid out for you in the room, labels and guide are thorough and helpful. Not all that far from the beach, I took a nice morning run and back. Everything in Santa Cruz is within 10-15 minutes, possibly less. So overall, clean, convenient and comfortable.
