(email hidden)! This is not your typical house, clearly. But a very unique, special place. And as Santa Cruz as it gets. :)
Claudine is a great hostess and a fascinating traveler. I definitely recommend this place.
Great house, great location, great host. If you want to spend a nice time in Santa Cruz, Claudine's house is the place to go. This house is unique and atypical. Close from the main streets and from the beach, easy parking. And for the ones who are not at ease with english, Claudine speaks a perfect french.
She is a very kind person, you'll feel at home in a blink of an eye.
My family and I enjoyed our stay at Claudine's streetcar home. Our beds were comfortable and clean. My daughters enjoyed petting her hens and kitty and relaxing in the backyard hammock. Her home is in walking distance to many restaurants, the Boardwalk, and we walked to a local coffee shop in the mornings. We were impressed with her dedication to Eco-friendly living and creativity.
We had a wonderful stay at Claudine's unique street car house. Claudine was a welcoming and warm host. House was centrally located in Santa Cruz and we walked to stores, restaurants and coffee shops. We really enjoyed the Santa Cruz vibe! My daughter now wants to attend UC Santa Cruz! Would definitely stay here again.
What a treat it was staying with Claudine! She was an excellent host and offered nothing but kindness, amazing recommendations, and delicious fruit from her tree. Thank you for the hospitality!
Didn't meet Claudine as she was out of town but her son Viva was very great host, met (email hidden), showed and explained everything. He didn't stay there so house was entirely ours when he left.
The place is old, made from streetcars so don't expect much. And if you are not comfortable with chicken walking around the house and peaking into kitchen through cat door in the morning, it won't be your place. Room was clean but the tub in the bathroom was not.
It was ok to stay a night but we had no wish to stay here longer.
Staying with Claudine had to be one of the highlights of our trip! Claudine is a free-spirited, beautiful soul with so much teach you if you will listen and appreciate her. My girlfriends and I took away so much from this amazing woman in just our one night stay! I plan to keep in touch with Claudine and hopefully, I will run into her again somewhere across the world in her travels :).
Amazing spot (I wanted to take the backyard with me) (email hidden). Highly recommended!
The house was great and really cool. I really liked how eco-friendly the place is. And the garden area is so serene, I enjoyed relaxing there in the evening.
Claudine was an awesome host. I really enjoyed talking with her and sharing stories. She is a real inspiration.
This Streetcar house was amaaazing! Easily the best choice made. I was very enchanted by everything. So quaint and so much beauty. Claudine is the nicest person who gives out such wonderful vibes. I couldn't be happier. Beats staying in a hotel any day!
Claudine is just as beautiful in spirit as she is in this photograph. She is warm and friendly and I found it so easy to be close with her from the get go. I appreciated every aspect of Claudine's stay, from the moments we were able to share our lives and challenges to learning important health and gardening tips. Claudine appreciated and acknowledged aspects of my hosting. She was considerate, clean and kept me in the loop about her daily plans. It was easy to feel as though I had a friend staying with me as that is what Claudine has become. I look forward to hosting Claudine again when she comes to visit NYC and I'm sure that wherever she is in the world, people will find her as lovely and personable as I have.
Very responsive and respectful (email hidden) was clean and put together after she left, which was great!
I highly recommend staying at Claudine's place in Santa Cruz. She has designed a truly creative, earthy and beautiful space which fosters relaxation and enjoyment. In addition she is a wonderful and thoughtful hostess.
Claudine is a very personable and helpful host. She went out of her way to help us while we stayed in her "cob" room last weekend. She has the perfect personality to make people feel welcome and at home.
