I've lived in this peaceful Santa Cruz home for 17 years. I'm a 2001 graduate of Environmental Studies from University of California at Santa Cruz, and I have been a Massage Therapist for 15 years. The name of my practice is Whole Body Peace Therapeutic Massage.
Some favorites of mine are tinkering around on the guitar, running with puppy dawgs on the beach, riding my bike along the coast or having a cozy beach bonfire, morning or night. Coastal Redwood hikes, day-trips, enjoying great live local music, twirling through Salsa and Swing classes, Mmmm-ing over ridiculously creative rolls at Mobo Sushi and then maybe catching an Independent film at one of our great movie houses downtown. Relaxing, rejuvenating Yoga classes at Divinitree or The Pacific Cultural Center are another new love of mine too!
There's really just so many great things to do in this area: Free outdoor movies, Free Summer Concerts at the Boardwalk, Free Sailing at the Harbor...the list goes on and on...that there's never want of a good time if you're available!
As a host, I am happy to treat my guests to information as to what's going on the area that your average visitor resources don't list--the things locals enjoy! Perhaps even show them around if they would like. I want people to feel that they are in the perfect home-away-from-home atmosphere, with all of their creature comforts met: fluffy towels, soft sheets, and a bright, clean, relaxing place to just be.
Singles and couples of all ages and all places are more than welcome... My motto: If it's fun, do more of THAT--Why not? =)
