We own and love our home close to the beach. I am a marine biologist for the Monterey Bay National marine Sanctuary, and travel away from lovely santa cruz a fair amount, and want to share our home with you.

We rented this home for cousins visiting from out of town. They were thrilled with this wonderful taste of California. Thank you to Rikki for providing a perfect rental; she was responsive and helpful when we secured the reservation and her home was clean and welcoming.
Rikki was wonderful to work with; responsive, positive and helpful! The house was as charming as we imagined from the photos, and in a pleasant neighborhood... just a short walk to the ocean and a 20 minute walk to the Boardwalk. We liked the colorful walls, the wooden floors, light pouring in the skylights and windows, the fragrant jasmine spilling over the fence and roses arching across the trellis. Having a nice patio area and hot tub was also a plus! We were able to pack light, knowing that the house included a washer and dryer. The kitchen is family friendly with everything you might need to cook meals. Oslo, the ginger cat, is also friendly and accepted us with ease.
Our family of 6 enjoyed our four night stay at Rikki's home. It was warm, cozy, and comfortable, and located in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood, just a few blocks away from the ocean. Rikki was away, but was available by cell/text and offered to attend to our needs promptly. She had left clear instructions for us to follow. We also enjoyed the sweet loving company of her cat. We would recommend her place to friends.
Felt very welcome, House appeared accurate as described. I would visit again and stay there. Thank you Rickii and of course Oslo.
Vi bodde hemma hos Rikki i Santa Cruz i tre dagar i dec och det var hur bra som helst. Bra läge och ett mysigt hus med bra planlösning, särskilt baksidan med jacuzzin. Det var också trevligt att ha en sällskaplig katt för några dagar. De små nackdelarna vara bara att enkel sängen var en junior säng, om du är lång kan det vara svårt att få plats och det fanns inget nummer på huset, det hade underlättat navigering. Men som sagt, vi var mycket nöjda, och kan bara rekommendera Nikki och hennes hus.
Thanks for making us feel welcome in your home. We had a great time on our trip! The neighborhood is quiet and within walking distance to coastal pathways. All the unique houses in the neighborhood are enjoyable to walk by. The house is a short drive away from SC boardwalk/beach, downtown, and Natural Bridges beach. Enjoyed the rear yard, hot tub (it is right off the kitchen and dining area).
Rikki's beautiful home is perfect for a stay in SC. The location is close to ocean, town, etc. The house is well equipped and comfortable to relax in.
This suited our needs perfectly, as a base camp for Santa Cruz adventures. It was easy to stay here -- clear instructions, off-street parking, comfy beds, good location.
Great location, lovely cottage with a very pretty back patio. Rikki was an excellent host.
My friends and I had a wonderful time staying at Rikki's cottage. Her home was just as described, and was very clean and neat. Oslo, the cat was very sweet and friendly, but he does spend a lot of time indoors so I would not recommend that people allergic to cats stay here. Fortunately we are not allergic, and it was nice to have him around! It was also very easy to communicate with Rikki both via e-mail and via phone. She responded very quickly to my questions, and even sent me a text during our stay to make sure that everything was okay.
The neighborhood was nice and quiet, and we had a great dinner at a Thai restaurant a couple of blocks away. I would definitely stay here again!
We didn't get to meet Rikki, but she left our cottage very clean. I would recommend her as a guest.
