Shemeika was very helpful and quick to respond. I got there in the evening, and the cottage was clean and well furnished. It was private, and the garden is beautiful. I spent three lovely nights here, and it was quite peaceful. Well, there are some chickens nearby, but that just adds to the charm!
The house is a few minutes drive from the bluffs and beaches at West Cliff; it was nice to go watch the sunsets over there. And the dining recommendations were good, though I used the kitchen and made a few meals here. There's more than enough supplies to make a great meal. The bed was nice, tucked into a cozy room at the back. There's a good strong shower and overall a quite nice room.
This cottage stay was great. The cottage is cozy, clean, and it had everything we needed - which wasn't much really since we stayed only one night. I really liked the location. It was an easy 15 minute walk to the cliffs, lighthouse, and the beach. We also were able to drive downtown for dinner in about 5 minutes. I would stay here anytime.
Great little get away with everything you need. Perfect for two people who are going to be in Santa Cruz and need a place to stay with cooking options. The space is incredibly charming and the host was easy to get in touch with and polite.
A very lovely spot in a very nice part of Santa Cruz. A residential area that is quite close to the ocean. Accommodations were very nice: comfortable, clean and modern. Shemeika and family was very welcoming.
The stay was nice and pleasant, I'm detail oriented so I did notice a few touches were different than pictures. Typically I wouldn't have minded but it was my one year anniversary road trip so I was looking for those particular pretty touches to be present. The other difficulty was not having heat it was very cold while we were there did have 2 portable heaters available it just wasn't enough and I didn't feel safe leaving it on at night, I woke up with a bit of a head cold. Also the bedroom was a bit akward. It was an easy place to book.
We had a lovely stay at this property. Very clean and well maintained. The kitchen and bathroom had everything we could have needed had we forgotten something. The property had great privacy from the main house and it was an added bonus to have access to the backyard area. The host left recommendations for dining and attractions in the area that were very helpful. Overall, great stay.
We had a wonderful night stay in this beautiful cottage. It was more than expected. My nephew, niece, and I were on a road trip to visit college campuses, and this was the highlight of our trip. It was a great place to wind down and relax after days of traveling and eating out. Danny was a great host and was super nice to make dough for our first homemade brick oven pizza experience. The backyard was absolute gorgeous and inviting environment to assemble our pizza and dine together. Even though it was a short one night stay, it definitely left a lasting impression. I would most definitely return for the Brick Oven.
This was a beautiful place, my daughter and I LOVED it, it was very private, perfectly appointed, and we're only sorry we didn't get to enjoy the gorgeous backyard and outdoor kitchen you see in the photos. It's super close to the boardwalk and the beach, just a few minutes drive, yet the cottage and neighborhood was very private and quiet. Would certainly stay again!
We arrived around 9pm after a long day at the beach. The house was easy to find and the attachment we stayed in was roomy and had all the the necessities - towels, shampoo, extra blankets, etc. In the morning we checked out their beautiful backyard and the splendid chickens. 5000 points for the chickens.
Great little private cottage in a beautiful garden!20min walk to the beach through a park and downtown.Warm welcome!
Thanks Shemeika for a great stay! The location of the cottage is perfect: a quiet, safe neighborhood that’s within a short distance to the ocean and West Cliff Drive, downtown Santa Cruz, the Wharf, restaurants, coffee shops, groceries, etc. You can walk or bike just about anywhere!
The bedroom is super cozy, quiet and stays dark and cool…perfect sleeping conditions so sometimes it’s hard to get out of bed but then you remember you’re in sunny Santa Cruz! The bathroom is large, clean and modern. The main living area with attached kitchen is bright and comfortable with great light and an amazing view of the landscaped yard (check out the pictures for an idea of how beautiful the surroundings are).
Danny and Shemeika are super friendly, welcoming and always available if you need anything. I had some amazing meals with them cooked in the wood-fired oven. The meals usually included veggies from the garden or eggs from the chickens.
I highly recommend the cottage especially if you are visiting as a couple or single individual. Hope to have the chance to visit again soon!
