I love my little harbor hale cottage by the harbor. I keep it clean. This is a great area for mountain biking and my Santa Cruz Blur works well for me.

I rented Kirk's cottage for my parents who were visiting from the east coast. Kirk was very responsive prior to and during their stay. Whenever we had questions he responded immediately. The cottage is small but super quaint and cozy - it had everything they needed. The neighborhood is a quiet residential area that is just about 2 blocks away from Twin Lakes Beach. There are fire pits down at the beach and we were able to have a bonfire one night down there. On the weekends in the summer there is a free water taxi that you can take to cross the harbor and walk to the lighthouse, Seabright Beach and the boardwalk. This place is in a super convenient location and Kirk is a great host! My parents would be happy to stay again on their next visit. THANKS Kirk!
This was the perfect place for us to stay during our vacatin in Santa Cruz! The house was adorable and clean, just as described in the listing and Kirk had it ready for us to check in with little added touches that made it very welcoming and comfortable. The location is ideal as well. Kirk was great to work with and I look forward to renting from him again.
I love this cute little beach house get away!! Super cute and so close to the water and little beach restaurants. The space inside is nice and open so you have plenty of room to spread out. You really don't need a car to get to food either. The neighbors are very friendly and I felt super safe. Kirk was awesome :) I've stayed here before so I kind of knew the routine. I knew that if I needed anything at all he would totally help me out. I've shared and recommended several people to him in this last visit so be sure to book up fast so you don't miss out! :)
Kirks kitchen is really well appointed. It has everything you need to cook. Great location. Central, cozy & quiet.
Since we were arriving late at night, our host made us feel welcome by having the lights on in the cottage and providing a key under the doormat so we didn't need to figure out the lockbox in the pouring rain. He even thought to have an umbrella waiting for us.
The cottage is small but clean and cozy, certainly there's adequate space for a couple. We found it chilly at night, despite the provision of a space heater. The location was excellent for our purposes: to serve as a base to visit family in the area. The neighborhood is mainly residential; the cottage itself is on an alley off a through street leading down to a marina in one direction and a beach in the other. It is very quiet at night and, hence, good for sleeping. The kitchen is well-supplied, with a good-sized refrigerator and efficient gas stove; plenty of dishes, flatware, and cooking utensils.
We were hardly ever around the cottage during the day so never really interacted with neighbors. Our host was not the least bit intrusive. His small considerate touches throughout the cottage were greatly appreciated.
I was surprised when I realized the home was a large room with a Murphy bed. After awhile, I truly appreciated the flexibility of the early check-in and late check-out. I understand why it was posted as a home since it is more than a home with a kitchen. This is a positive review and enjoyed the beach was a block away and could hear the waves crashing in the early morning. Great birthday weekend. Kirk was available for any assistance if necessary.
This cottage was just perfect. Really clean, convenient, 3 min walk to the beach, few restaurant around...
Next time I come to Santa Cruz, I know where to go....
I had a lot of fun here. It was real simple to check in and out. The cottage is well equipped, and very clean. Nice neighbors too. I would definitely stay here again.
Kirk was very responsive throughout the rental process. He phoned us the morning of the first day to let us know that we could come in early. The studio was as described. It was clean and in a good location with easy access to the beach several blocks away. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return.
We had a very nice two-day stay at the cottage, it was just as described in the listing. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was large enough and well enough equipped to be useful, plenty of hot water in the shower. The bathroom sink area, though, is not for the broad-shouldered. Somehow the little place seemed quite spacious for the two of us and is very well maintained. The neighborhood was pretty quiet when we were there, over the Thanksgiving holiday.
We would definitely like to stay there again, as would several of our friends who stopped by to check it out.
Kirk seems to be a very nice fellow, very accommodating and eager to be helpful.
