Margaret is a great host! :] Her communication was clear and timely. Her listing was clean and cozy and as expected based on the posting (no unexpected surprises). She was also respectful about giving us our space during our stay but still making us feel like we were taken care of which I greatly appreciated! :]
The coffee and cookies she left for us to enjoy ourselves made our morning awesomely delicious and I will miss her beautiful and peaceful garden! I want to come back ASAP!
We had a wonderful stay at Margaret's fabulous place. With 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, and some extra space with the washer dryer and other surfaces, it was the perfect layout for us and our 2 kids. Margaret had included so many little touches (a hairdryer, sunblock, etc) so that you won't go without even if you forget something. She laid out a lovely light breakfast for us for the morning. We got to meet Margaret too and she was friendly, helpful with suggestions about where to go, and courteous/respectful. We'll be going back!
Margaret was a kind and generous hostess. She made the space accommodating and left a light, continental breakfast every morning. The apartment is in the basement of her house, which means it is a bit cold, but she provided ample space heaters to make sure we were comfortable. The location was very close to downtown Santa Cruz and the neighborhood was quiet and felt very safe. There was ample street parking and while we could have walked downtown, having a car was a major bonus. This space consisted of 2 bedrooms and a bathroom connected by a hallway. It worked for our needs since we basically just needed a place to crash at night. This probably wouldn't be an ideal location for anyone that wants to be able to lounge around their room seeing as there aren't any kitchen or living amenities. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and felt that it was budget friendly.
Margaret was a great host. As a first time airbnb user, our stay was a great experience and the listing was exactly what we received. All three members of my group highly recommend Margaret's cute and comfortable home.
Margaret's garden apartment was just what it advertised, and was a great place to stay for three of us on a last-minute surf trip. The beds were very comfortable, the ambiance of the neighborhood and yard was relaxing, and the short walk downtown was especially nice. Recommended, especially for couples who don't need somewhere with a big common space.
Margaret was a lovely host. The downstairs apartment was spacious with a great yard for our pup to explore. I appreciated the separate entrance into the house. The home was very centrally located and easy to get to. I hope to come back to visit sometime soon!
Margaret was a wonderful guest--friendly, conscientious, communicative, tidy and easygoing. Margaret is a star!
