My name is Mark and Ive owned this piece of Santa Cruz since the year 2000.
Since then Its undergone a ground up renovation keeping with the original characteristics and charm of a late 1920's house with all the conveniences of a modern home.
Marks place is a terrific way to experience Santa Cruz. Minutes away from downtown and the beach. Spacious, warm and homey. Mark was very accommodating -- we had a great trip.
This place was great! everything you need. It a very nice home with a backyard and BBQ. Walking distance to downtown Santa Cruz. There are some restaurants, a liquor store, a cafe, and an ice cream parlor walking distance too. Mark was a great host and provided everything we needed. I would rent this home again.
My friends and I had a wonderful stay at Mark's BEAUTIFUL home in Santa Cruz. Although the renovations are not completely done, this did not affect our stay at all. The house was spotless upon arrival, has everything you need for a comfortable stay (towels, extra air mattress, bedding, etc.), and Mark was very accommodating and friendly. We even met his two dogs! Centrally located - ice cream shop across the street (literally) is a must try! Fin's Coffee next door and Shopper's Corner just a short drive away. I highly recommend this property!
We had a nice stay - great location! The house was immaculate.
We enjoyed our stay. Place was clean and had everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again since we visit Santa Cruz a couple times of year since our son attends UCSC.
Beautiful and clean, a great spot to stay in Santa Cruz. Might be a little challenging with toddlers until the renovations are complete but definitely good for grownups. We were also welcomed by a bunch of flowers and a card - very thoughtful!
Mark's home was just what we needed. Though the remodeling is not 100% completed, there were no problems with any of the features and comforts of the home. The two bedrooms were perfect for the three of us staying over the weekend. We enjoyed the kitchen, sharing breakfast and dinner time together. The home is centrally located and a short drive to the beach or downtown happenings. Next visit to Santa Cruz, we will look into Mark's place again to see if it's available.
The house was perfect centrally located with a great ice cream spot across the street. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay I'm Santa Cruz and can't wait to go back!
