This was our first time using airbnb.com and we didn't know what to expect. After reading their super positive reviews, we were so excited to stay with Ali and Patrick. Our stay confirmed why everyone loves staying with them! If you are considering this home when you come to visit, you definitely should. Let me tell you why:
1. They are professional, flexible, and very friendly. Their communication before, during, and after the trip was top notch. We arrived a little early and they were accommodating to our needs.
2. They are welcoming and their home is warm. We enjoyed our chats with Patrick and Ali and felt welcome right away. They made it a point to make the experience personal (so far from the feel of a sterile hotel!).
3. The house is clean, quiet, and well-prepared. The room has towels, a binder with local resources, and extra blankets if you get cold.
4. You are a five minute walk from a great beach. We walked down and worked out on the beach and watched about a million surfers float around. We don't surf, but the surfers seemed happy.
5. You're close to Capitola, in case you want to venture there, too.
6. Last but certainly not least, their dog is super friendly and silly. We are dog people and felt right at home meeting Wally.
Basically, Ali and Patrick are awesome and their house and location are equally awesome.
Our stay with Ali and Patrick was excellent. They were very hospitable and helpful with pointers on where to eat, what to do, where to surf, etc. You can't beat the location, we were 1 block from a really awesome beach in Pleasure Point that is not too crowded since its tucked away from the main crowds in Santa Cruz and Capitola. The house is definitely a nice cozy spot with a little yard out front and a hammock for lounging. The dog Wally is super chill and friendly with the guests. My girlfriend and I would definitely plan another trip back here!
Ali and Patrick's home is so cozy and charming, we will definitely be back!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Ali and Patrick, they were friendly and welcoming and gave us great advice on where to go. The house was perfectly situated for us, close enough to go into central Santa Cruz if you wanted it but also really close to the beach in a beautiful local, relaxed area where the locals were really relaxed and friendly. The room itself was lovely and clean and the bed comfortable.
We'd definitely stay there again if we were in the area!
Great little place by the beach in a quiet, surfer friendly neighborhood.
Ali&Patrick are wonderful people and their dog is really sweet as well. Their home is super cute and tidy, it wad great, thanks guys! :)
Great place, very good service, awesome location and very nice people! I would definitely recommend this place!
Great place, incredible location, and the coolest effing hosts ever. Ali and Patrick are friendly, welcoming, and super helpful on things like where to eat and what to do in Santa Cruz. Sweet surfer vibe. Chill dog. Stay here!
We had the perfect stay in SC thanks to Ali & Patrick. There's plenty of parking in the neighborhood and you're just a stroll from the shore as well as a convenient (and delicious) commercial district. Though we didn't bump into our hosts much (it was a holiday weekend), we felt at home with their very sweet and quiet dog. They even had a hand-crafted neighborhood guide in our room which was a pleasant surprise since I hadn't visited the area before and didn't want to spend my entire stay at the boardwalk; made finding a bite to eat quick and painless.
Honestly, Pleasure Point is a prime location, perfect for all levels of surfing. Ali & Patrick are a couple blocks from board and gear shops, there's also a cafe on the hill above the water north a few blocks - best breakfast burritos around :) Looking forward to another visit soon enough!
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay. Patrick gave us great recommendations of things to do in the area and was very friendly, easy-going, and accommodating. The house is in a perfect location and great for morning walks on the beach. We couldn't have been happier with our stay and would love to head back to Santa Cruz soon!
Great guests. Great communication. Welcome back anytime!
What a lovely couple!!! It was a complete joy to host them. They are so passionate about the environment and getting out and enjoying everything. They are gracious, thoughtful, easy going and great fun. And they also took great care of the space. Welcome back any time!!
Great guests! Fun and friendly couple :)
Really nice guest! Very simpatic, clean, trustable and nice to talk. Totally recommend them.
Ali & Patrick were a very nice young couple from California. They certainly made the most out of their short time in Paris and I enjoyed chatting with them. I would welcome them to stay at my place again any time.
Ali & Patrick are have been our friends for about 4 years now. They are mature, responsible, easy going and fun. They have care taken our home while we were gone on vacation and they took great care of our home. I would highly recommend them as guests or to stay at their awesome home in Santa Cruz.
