Friendly, happy and flexible. Passionate about exercise and staying fit. Love being outside. I enjoy people and you will always be greeted warmly. Tambien, hablo espanol.
This was my first airbnb experience and I am so glad that it was at Cathy's place. We received lots of recommendations, were well looked after, felt right at home. She is a lovely person, the location is quiet and peaceful, which certainly beats fighting the crowds and noise in either Capitola or Santa Cruz. We were well pleased and it is exactly as pictured.
Cathy was a lovely hostess: respected our privacy and yet was knowledgeable and available to help us settle in and answer any questions. Plenty of clean towels and very comfy bed. Nice, sunny room with a large window. Immacullate, nice home. So close to Capitola, in a nice and peaceful residential area. Some good restaurants just. mile away, especially the small very authentic healthy Mexican food at Tortilla Flats...a great, big margarita! Easy, no hassle parking. Easy in and easy out of the house. The rooms are upstairs so keep that in mind if you have any mobility issues.
Very nice house.
Clean and confortable room.
We had a very great time with Cathy.
We really felt like at home.
My friend and I attended a wedding at Seascape in Aptos so we needed a place to spend the night. Cathy's place was great! She was super nice and helpful. Although we never met in person I feel like we did since we connected over texts and phone calls. Great host. Great house. I'd stay again and will be sure to refer her to any friends in search of a place to stay in Santa Cruz. 5 stars all the way!
Cathy was a wonderful host! We had a lovely time at her house and enjoyed chatting with her. We would recommend her to anyone and would love to come back!
Great experience. Cathy is very nice. We had a very cool stay. I wish we could have stayed longer in the Santa cruz area
Cathy's Place was superb! It's location in Santa Cruz is perfecdt for going in either direction, north or south, off of Highway 1. Her neighborhood is peaceful and clean. Her care for her guests was wonderful.
My family enjoyed staying in Cathy's lovely home. Especially my daughter loved the house for its tasteful decoration.
Lisha and Alex have never stayed at a bnb prior to this wonderful home and we will definitely be back to Cathy's, since she was so kind and gracious. Her home was close to everything that we wanted to do for our first trip together in Capitola and Soquel. It was fun to simply lay on the patio hammock and enjoy our coffee or assorted beverages. I would rate Cathy's home a 11 out of 10.... really..!! We will be most happy to return to see Cathy once again!! Thank you for your generosity and directions to restaurants.
Cathy has a lovely, warm home and was attentive to every detail. It was a pleasure to stay there and she equal welcoming to my niece in spite of her late arrival. In addition, I found Cathy herself to be a delight and extremely helpful about the local areas and even to give directions when I was in a pinch! I would definitely stay with Cathy again.
Cathy and David were fantastic! They really took advantage of their time here in Vancouver and explored the city. They went to all sorts of different areas. Communication was great from the beginning to the end. They were clean, quiet, friendly and just great people! I look forward to hosting them again sometime in the future. I would definitely rent to them again. Take care you two :)
Cathy and David were wonderful guest and we enjoyed very much hosting them. Warm and lovely people we looked forward to experiencing their airbnb quarters in Santa Cruz. Highly Recommend!
We stayed at my Aunt Cathy's beautiful house after a wedding in Santa Cruz recently. Her home is so comfortable. The bed was warm and cozy on an unusually cold June night. Her home is extremely clean and inviting– and filled with artwork and fabric from her travels without being cluttered. I saw her newly landscaped garden for the first time and it looked great. Thank you again for letting us stay with you, Cathy!
We decided to stay at Cathy’s for my Nana’s 72nd Birthday. I had looked for the perfect place. I wanted a safe comfortable environment for us two women. Hotels are fine but you never get the full experience of being local and I always worry about leaving my jewelry behind.
When we arrived we were welcomed warmly and felt at ease right away. Cathy’s home was an extension of our own homes. The bright colors and open space were beautiful and ideal for the ocean experience. It was lovely.
Cathy was a kind and courteous host. She helped us with directions, suggested scrumptious places to eat and heightened our experience in Capitola. We felt safe enough to leave our precious belongings in our room and ventured out to Capitola care free! What a relief!
Things to note:
* There is no TV! (It was wonderful) Nana and I read our books one afternoon. There were no distractions just peaceful silence.
* There is no coffee machine. Cathy had a French Coffee press. I drink coffee in the mornings. I have never used one of these devices. Cathy had to show me how to use it. I have to express, I have never really tasted coffee until I used it. Nana and I bought some gourmet coffee and what a treat! A French Coffee Press is on my wish list for Christmas ;o)
* Cathy does not have animals so there are no worries for allergies. Plus the house was spotless, no mold or dust for that matter.
* The water pressure was nice and hot.
* The room was clean and the bed helped you melt away to peaceful dreams.
I think that’s all…
Thank you so much Cathy. Nana and I enjoyed ourselves immensely.

We came from Southamerica for our daughters graduation at UCSC. We rented her two rooms. Kathy made us feel at home, we even had a small family gathering for breakfast in her beautiful sunny backyard! She speaks fluent spanish and was helpful and generous. She recommended very good places to eat and even made the reservations for us !. We highly recommend staying at her place!
Cathy's house is located in a lovely quiet neighborhood with a beautiful park behind her house where birds make an appearance often. Spending the night at Cathy's house provided us with complete relaxation. We were able to access all of Santa Cruz's fun activities while being nestled in the calm of her home. We especially enjoyed Cathy's kindness and impeccable hospitality, as well as her sense of decor. I highly recommend her home to anyone visiting the area.
Cathy's home is like staying at the friendliest B&B ever!!! The rooms are bright and sunny and you couldn't ask for a better location!!! Your hostess is accomadating and is as bright and sunny as her home. If you are looking for the perfect home away from home, this is the place for you!!!
Cathy is gracious and welcoming. Her home is beautiful, and the backyard is beautifully landscaped and backs up to a wonderful park area: the perfect place to enjoy an evening glass of wine in a warm, comfortable setting.
I rented a room in Cathy's house in 2005 and we have remained close friend ever since. She continues to be welcoming to me whenever I visit. She is a generous and cheerful person, and will do anything to make her guests feel at home.
Cathy is a marvelous hostess and her house is beautiful and spacious! Since she is a teacher, she naturally likes to serve and help people. She will treat you like a best friend :~).
The beautiful back yard space is great, too. Cathy has lived in the Santa Cruz for over 25 years and can advise where you can go for the best local food, activities, etc.
