Place was great. Very serene and private and just what we needed from a quick get away from our regularly scheduled lives. A special thanks to Vanessa so being accommodating with our very last minute request to rent her cottage!
Vanessa was great. We had a lovely weekend.
We had an absolutely wonderful stay. The place was perfect. Clean, bright, airy, and very accommodating. Vanessa thought through every detail, from gaining access to feeling at home. I've never felt so at-ease while away from home. We will definitely come back!
I think we're just gonna move in!! This was our 3rd, yes 3rd visit to Vanesa's luxurious retreat. Hip, cool, well appointed…what's not love? This is where we go to completely unwind, and rejuvenate. Magical.
Vanessa and her husband made my stay wonderful. They are sensitive to strike the balance between privacy and social inclusion. The cottage was immaculate with easy access to the beach and downtown area. I've stayed there before and look forward to visiting them again. They gave suggestions and invited me to dinner and drinks with them and their friends. Bed was very comfortable, internet connection was strong, and cable and netflix were provided. Highly recommended.
My boyfriend and I just got back from a weekend at Vanessa's Santa Cruz cottage. What a great little spot! The cottage is in the back of her property and was perfect for two people. The pictures don't do it justice. It is very well decorated and put together! We loved everything about it! It also has a beautiful little garden and outdoor seating area. The only thing we didn't like about our stay was that we were woken up both nights by raccoons running on the roof and skylights! Hahah it didn't really bother us but it was a little startling. Overall though we loved Vanessa's home and would definitely stay there again!
This place was awesome! From the fresh sweet smelling sheets and towels to the beautiful patio to greet you as you come in. Walking distance to great little restaurants too. It was so relaxing, like you are in your own little world. We had a couple friends over from the area and they were surprised this little gem existed. We wil definitely be back!
The place was great, very airy and open. The big open shower was the best part. The location is very walkable to downtown and the boardwalk so no dealing with traffic. It's nestled into a nice little neighborhood.
I had an amazing stay and Vanessa was an incredible host, going out of her way to make sure I was informed and equipped to see the area. The place is exactly as pictured and very relaxing... in the best part of Santa Cruz. :)
This place was PERFECT! I needed a relaxing vacation, and Vanessa's cottage provided me with exactly that. Lots of privacy, extremely clean and cute with plants and hummingbirds everywhere. She was a gracious host who made sure I was comfortable and happy. I will definitely be visiting again :)
