Living and loving Santa Cruz with my family. We enjoy sharing our cottage retreat, as it is a quiet, beautiful Sanctuary, near downtown Pacific Avenue and West Cliff Drive.

Mare and her family made us feel very welcome into their home. The private cottage was cozy and safe making for the perfect environment for ourselves and our son. The smell of flowers left for us in the cottage and throughout the gardens was like a dream. This was exactly the experience we needed as we plan for some big life changes. Thank you!3
Thank you Jimmy, Nancy & Atticus,
It was such a nice visit with you all. We are happy you all enjoyed your time! Let us know anytime you need the cottage.
This was the perfect weekend getaway. The place was fully equipped and the hot tub was clean. The cottage is very private. Mara is very responsive and helpful when needed. It's walking distance to many great restaurants and less than 2 miles to the beach! We definitely would stay there again.
This was lovely, private, clean, inviting, quiet, with every comfort!
Overall the experience was pleasant. The place had most of the amenities one would need
Property was beautiful and quiet. Loved being 'off' the road and secluded in our little paradise!
Great place. Loved the hot tub! Very private overall. Mara was super sweet and very helpful. Would definitely stay again!
Wonderful little sanctuary in Santa Cruz! The space is even bigger than it looks and it is so nice and quaint, really the perfect spot for a getaway!
Mara's cottage is the best if you want to relax and enjoy some time for yourself. Close to downtown if you want to go out but also well equipped if you prefer to cook at home and enjoy the hot tub (which is a great plus!). Communicating with Mara is extremely easy and everything went smooth. Definitely recommended for staying in Santa Cruz!
Mara's beautiful Santa Cruz craftsman is exactly that. It is a lovely, serene, very clean and comfortable home in an ideal location away from the craziness of downtown, but still an easy walk or bike ride to wonderful restaurants, the beach, and other attractions.
Mara is a kind and thoughtful host who is easily accessible if you have questions or issues. Her property will be my home-away-from-home for future trips to Santa Cruz.
The home was perfect for our family gathering of seven adults and one child. Neighborhood is nice and quiet. We especially appreciated the comfortable and welcoming back yard. We didn't walk to the beach or the boardwalk although it is possible.
We did have a controllable ant infestation that the cleaning person was taking care of with ant traps when we arrived.
