I live in beautiful Santa Cruz where I practice medicine, hike, kayak , play (badly) my guitar and overall have a good life. I travel extensively (for business and pleasure) and I love to be able to stay with "real" people anytime I can. :)

We had a lovely stay at Ruth's place. The studio was clean and cozy. Ruth was very responsive and welcoming.
What a great time my wife and I just experienced at Ruth's studio! The location is terrific for walks on the beach, exploring downtown Santa Cruz and Capitola, watching elephant seals north on Highway 1, and so much other fun enjoyments easy to find along the coast.
Ruth warmly greeted us upon arrival, and her studio (and spacious back patio) are exactly as portrayed in the photographs. Without hesitation we will stay here again, and highly suggest you consider doing the same.
Great location with everything you could need for a nice little get away. Ruth wasn't home while we were there but called to make sure we had everything we needed and let us know we could call anytime.
The location of this studio was great. We had a very nice little trip here and really enjoyed the beach nearby. Ruth was welcoming and helpful.
Great location near the beach with all the amenities we needed for our 3-day stay. It was great to have a place to do laundry during our trip down the CA coastline. And we also recommend the Mexican place up the block. :)
We had a great time staying in Ruth's private studio in Santa Cruz. The location was perfect, a block a way from the beach and a short drive to everything Santa Cruz has to offer. The studio was clean, cozy, and very private. We didn't get to meet Ruth, as she was out of town, but we felt welcomed regardless. A big thumbs up, would definitely stay here again given the opportunity.
This was a great place to stay, fully equipped with all the small touches in a comfortable, spacious environment. My fiancee and I brought our road bikes and it was very easy and convenient to leave right from Ruth's place and ride for several hours in any direction over the 4 night stay. Quiet, relaxing, private and cozy!! Thank you Ruth for making our much needed get-a-way just right! =) We will definitely be back!
Ruth's studio is a most comfortable and convenient place to stay in the Santa Cruz area. Your quarters are private and as Ruth so aptly puts it "welcome to a small piece of paradise". The area is very nice and just a "skip" to the beach. Everything you might need is stocked in this studio for cooking relaxing and enjoying your stay.
We would easily recommend this charming place to anyone wanting to stay in Santa Cruz.
What an amazingly charming studio in a great location - this was just one of those Airbnb experiences that you really look for, a home away from home. The back garden is like a Zen retreat, complete with an outdoor tub and tons of peaceful little nooks and crannies.
The studio itself was well-decorated, spotless and perfect - and the beach being only one block away is pretty great, we parked the car and just rode out bikes around SC while we were there - though it's below Ruth's house it felt very private, like our own little cottage.
Ruth was communicative about check-in and check-out.
Overall, really enjoyed our stay and would love to return soon!
We stayed seven nights and had a wonderful experience. Read the reviews they all ring true. Great location, great locals beach, and a lovely place to relax. We can't wait to get back!
Ruth was a wonderful guest
We would welcome her any time
it was a very nice experience to have her with us
Ruth and her friends were pleasant, nice and friendly! They really took care of my place and even separated the disposal for the recyclables!! A+!
We truly enjoyed having Ruth in our home. She was quiet, *really* interesting to talk to, and left the place neat and tidy. What more can a host ask?
Very polite lady!
Ruth was a gracious guest. Very respectful and clean. I would welcome get back anytime.
Ruth is a very sweet and lovely guest. We were so happy to host her. She is very friendly and was so good with communications. It would be our pleasure to host her again and encourage other hosts because she is such an excellent guest.
wonderful guest...sweet,respectful and welcome back anytime!!
Ruth stayed with me for a few days and was a great guest. We have a few things in common so we enjoyed conversation in the mornings and evenings. Ruth would be a pleasant guest for any home.
Ruth was kind, respectful, attentive to house rules and and an absolute pleasure to have as a guest, I hope I get the chance soon to check your your Santa Cruz location :) All my best to you! p.s. If the spontaneous film viewing that Sat evening in any way inconvenienced your stay Ruth, please let me know and I would be happy to refund half cost of your stay.
Ruth has been a good friend for 7 or 8 years. She has a lovely home down the street from a wonderful beach and rents out her very large, well-equipped studio. The backyard has lovely landscaping and provides a comfortable, private place to relax.
Ruth is a very interesting, well-traveled, gracious woman who respects the privacy of her guests and is very reliable. I know that because when she has to be away, she has asked me to be available for any special needs or problems for her guests.
I've known Ruth for a handful of years both personally & professionally and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her place to stay. The space itself is extremely cute, clean, quiet and in a great location- just a block from one of Santa Cruz's most beautiful beaches. And although the studio is in the larger house, you have your own entrance and it's very private. There are also some good local restaurants within walking distance on there's a great Farmer's Market across the street on Sundays.
Ruth herself is extremely kind, friendly and easy to communicate with. A great choice for a vacation rental!
Ruth and I have been friends for, uh, almost four decades and kept in touch across continents and oceans. I know her very well. She is an admirable friend, loyal and warm. She combines deep knowledge with a keen sense of humor, and is a great host. To visit her is a lot of fun, as Ruth is as creative as reliable.
As a computer consultant, I travel a lot for work and stay at b&b's, hotels, motels... in and out of U.S. Ruth's place is BY FAR the best around. Ruth herself is a perfect blend of helpful (suggestions where to go/what to see, accommodating needs) and leaving you your privacy. The place itself is amazingly charming - comfy bed and blankets, adorable kitchen, additional outdoor kitchen in a beautifully landscaped yard, bathroom that looks like a luxurious spa room (big whirlpool tub). And the location! My, my. About 4 houses from the Pacific ocean, gorgeous sandy beach, grass area, great walks. Ruth is friendly, flexible and accommodating, the place is great, location is one of the best in the world. She could charge so much more, but is not greedy - wants people to be comfortable and enjoy their stay. I've stayed there several times and can't wait to get away and be there again.
