Situated on a large lot, away from the traffic and noise that affects more touristy areas, our historic craftsman Bungalow from the 1914, has been lovingly restored, maintaining the authentic Arts and Crafts Style, while retrofitting modern mechanical systems. The home features 'Green' building features such as No VOC wax finish on the Fir Floors floors, and Low VOC finish materials. Our vision was to provide a Restorative Sanctuary. Judging by our reviews here, and comments we have had in the past, we've hit the mark.

We also have a separate cottage near the property with its own garage, Japanese maples throughout, bamboo garden with hot tub, 2 person slate shower, cherry floors and cabinets with stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. It is very peaceful and just an easy pace of life. Inquire about it, if you need additional space. $1000-$1400 per week sleeps 4. Queen bed plus a queen aero bed for the living room.

This is your home away from home. Just bring your clothes and a tooth brush and enjoy living in Santa Cruz, California.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: I grew up on a small island nation in the South Pacific and living in the United States could not be more different. However, living in beautiful Santa Cruz and the Ocean that connects me to my ancestors is a short walk from my home. Zach and I love it here and it gives us great pleasure to hear of our guests enjoyable and restorative experience in our home.

              Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
              Santa Cruz is a beautiful place to live. We have the Redwood forest behind us and the beautiful Monterey Bay in front of us. We are surrounded by amazing parks with endless activities golf, out rigger paddling, biking, surfing, hiking, kayaking etc… My husband and I bought this home as our sanctuary.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              It is a peaceful home. The gardens are beautiful especially in the Spring, Summer and Fall.
