I grew up in Santa Cruz. I am an Interior designer in the bay area.
We had an amazing time in Diana's home this past weekend. It's in the ideal location being walking distance to the beach, boardwalk as well as many fun restaurants and bars. The home is adorably decorated and have a great vintage feel about it. We especially loved having access to the backyard where our group was able to dine and grill out. Diana was extremely helpful and proactive in making sure that everything in the home was up to our standards.
The only slight disadvantage to the home is there is no dishwasher, but in all reality it wasn't a huge hassle.
We will definitely be staying here again next time we visit Santa Cruz!
