We love our house but also love to travel.
I work in education so I have all the summers off, my children are off to college so my time to travel has come. Our house is available for summer, holidays and most weekends.

Lovely home. Nicely decorated. Lilian is a great host. Will definitely stay here again.
The house was amazing, great location, and very comfortable with a group. The pictures are true to form, and the house has a very cool, open design. Lilian was super easy to communicate with and flexible. I only wish the weather had cooperated so we could have enjoyed the backyard and surrounding outdoor activities more. Highly recommended for any trip to Santa Cruz!
We had a wonderful stay -- home as the pictures look and even better. Walk to beaches... We loved the indoor-outdoor living space and the fire pit at night. Thanks Lilian!
Lilian ensured everything was in great condition for our stay. Her home is lovely and I can't recommend it enough!
Fantastic house and a great experience all around. Lillian made sure our two families felt very welcome in this lovely home. The bedrooms (and beds!) are super comfortable. It was great having separate space downstairs for our 4 year olds to play and for the grown ups to hang out. The whole vibe of the house is really lovely. As is the neighborhood - to be able to walk to the gorgeous views of pleasure point or the little beaches with the kids was so refreshing. I would love to do it again!
Lilian's house comfortably fit our 6 adults + 2 children. The house was very clean and appointed with plenty of modern appliances/amenities and the back patio had a great fire pit!
Lilian did warn us we might have an ant problem and we were indeed plagued by ants in the kitchen (requiring we store all food in the fridge). The ants even managed to get up to the 2nd story master bath counter.
Overall, we had a relaxing time though and recommend Lilian's wonderful home to anyone looking for a comfortable and uber modern place to stay near the beach in Santa Cruz!
This is one of those listings where experiencing the house in real life far surpasses the photographs. Lilian's home was absolutely gorgeous. There are windows everywhere so sunlight follows you everywhere. All of the bedrooms–even the small one–were spacious, well designed, and accommodating. We didn't meet Lilian in person but there were clear instructions exchanged through fairly concise messages.
I was traveling with a large group of friends for a weekend and there was more than enough room for everyone. There's two comfy couches downstairs and two futons in the medium-sized room in addition to two full beds and one queen. Not to mention, a ton of extra towels and blankets.
The open kitchen space had everyone cooking for brunch and dinner and there was enough space to store snacks and groceries. (Beware of leaving anything sweet/sugary out or unwrapped; we accidentally left a single skewer we used for s'mores that resulted in some ants the next morning. Easy clean up but be wary.)
Location-wise, it's on a quiet street that's extremely close to Pleasure Point where there's an amazing view of the sunrise and early-morning surfers.
All in all, a perfect weekend that my group wished could last longer!
Our experience here was excellent. This is a beautiful, spacious house in a lovely neighborhood. Lilian is an accommodating host, and everything was simple and easy. Very highly recommended!
Very nicely done house with a great yard and layout. Convenient and easy location in a good neighborhood. Host was easy to communicate and deal with.
Our family of five really enjoyed this home! The outdoor shower (with hot water) was nice after surfing .2 miles away at Pleasure Point. The outdoor area with two hammocks and firepit was a great place to hang out. The open floor plan downstairs didn't leave anyone in the kitchen out of the action. Great place! We would come back. My only negative feedback is that the $44/day county charge should be factored in to the AirBnB price like other listings in the same area.
Lilian and her group were very easy to work with and as renters themselves gave me some very thoughtful and useful tips on the house. I would be happy to have them back!
