Everything was awesome. I wish I would have stayed longer. She had absolutely everything you would need should you have forgotten anything and was extremely friendly. The cottage was extremely clean and puts you walking distance to everything.
Maria greeted me when I first got in and was very welcoming. The cottage was as described - a private cottage with a bedroom, bathroom, and Keurig machine for coffee/tea. Everything was clean and the bed was very comfortable! It was perfect for my weekend getaway. A big plus is the garden and fountain. The cottage is very close to downtown Santa Cruz. To get to the beach is a short drive or a slightly longer walk. Overall a great stay!
Maria and her husband were great. The cottage was beautiful. Thanks for a wonderful vacation!
Maria and Brad were very good hosts! Maria met us on site and took us back to the cottage which was clean and cute just like in the pictures. The secluded backyard is full of plants, vegetables and fruit trees which is very nice. Maria loves gardening and so does my wife. I enjoyed sitting and reading in the yard in the morning because it was so quite and peaceful. The location is within walking distance to downtown Santa Cruz. We really enjoyed our stay at the "Garden Cottage"!
Great experience! Maria gave us our privacy but made herself readily available. The cottage was exactly what it was described as and I wish I would've spent a little more time in the beautiful garden area. Most of our time was spent on the boardwalk, which was a short 10-15 minute walk away. Overall great experience I'd be happy to visit again!
Maria's place was great - very clean and comfortable. She met us and gave us some helpful info about the area, and we made friends with her outdoor cats.
Maria's beautifully furnished cottage in her backyard garden was a true pleasure to visit. Clean, quiet, and beautifully decorated, it's the perfect getaway after a busy summer day in surf town. Maria was kind and accommodating--a perfect host and a perfect stay.
Awesome experience!! Very clean and just what you need. Close to town!
This is our second time staying at Maria's cottage and it's just like I remember it. The place was very clean and conveniently has a keurig for your morning coffee. Best of all is the location, you can walk to downtown Santa Cruz in a couple of minutes. This is by far one of my favorite AirBnb places to stay. I will defiantly come back and stay again anytime I am in the area.
Maria welcomed my daughter and I with a friendly smile and a wealth of information about the area. The cottage was perfect and exactly as it looks in the pictures. The bed was very comfortable and it was lovely to hear the water fountain in the beautiful garden surrounding the cottage as we fell asleep. The amenities were wonderful too... Coffee, shampoo, body lotion and bottled water. Very close walk to town. I definitely will be coming back! Thank you Maria!
Although I was not in town when Maria stayed at my place, she left everything in perfect shape. I would be very happy to host her again anytime.
