Santa Cruz studio description

136 Younger Way is located atop Santa Cruz's Beach Hill, an easy downhill stroll to the Pacific Ocean, Main Beach volleyball courts, the historic Santa Cruz Wharf and the famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Surfers and boogie boarders are just minutes away from Cowell’s (beginner waves) and Steamer Lane (expert waves). Explore downtown shops, restaurants and coffee shops which are easily accessible by a 10 minute walk. There are endless other recreational options in Santa Cruz County including mountain biking, hiking, sailing, kayaking and scenic trains through redwood forests.

The guest cottage is a completely renovated (2012) studio with one bath and kitchenette, located on the same property as a Craftsman style home. High ceilings allow for an open feel within the studio cottage. Enjoy the small deck area outside and shared BBQ with the main house on the property.

This cottage is a relaxing getaway and perfect retreat. The property lies on a quiet one way residential street occupied almost solely by year round residents.

If you need more space, you can also view the VRBO listing for the main home - VRBO listing #413289. We live in the main house as our primary residence, but rent it during the summer months, holidays, and some weekends.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We moved to Santa Cruz in July 2011 from Chicago. It's been quite a culture shift; but we love it, we love the relaxed and friendly culture of Santa Cruz, we really think there's no place like it and we have traveled all over the world. We've been married 16 years and love sharing new experiences We've traveled to 41 countries together and have a passion for social justice issues; both globally and locally. Chad is currently pursuing a socially minded start up company focused on job creation in Rwanda and Jodi works as a psychotherapist at UCSC's Counseling & Psychological Services. Our boys love living in Santa Cruz; playing at the beach, soccer at Depot Park, or riding their scooters at the Bike Park.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
We took a 12 week sabbatical in 2009; volunteering for a fair trade retailer who was located in Santa Cruz. We spent 6 weeks in Santa Cruz and 6 weeks in East Africa. After returning home to Chicago, we decided to pursue a different journey in life, sold our home in and in time decided we wanted Santa Cruz to be our new home. We love the relaxed neighborhood feel up on Beach Hill, it's so close to all the action, but being on a one way street keeps it quiet and relaxed! We decided to down size when we moved to Santa Cruz, and we loved the Craftsman architecture of this home and the outdoor spaces. We converted the single stall garage into a cottage unit by adding a small addition on the side. We wanted a place for grandparents and friends from the midwest to stay when they came to visit. All of our guests have loved the little cottage.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Relaxation and fun are the two things we love about living at 136 Younger Way. We can stroll down to the beach for 30 minutes, hop on our bikes for some boogie boarding fun, or relax at home listening to the summer beach concerts. This little studio cottage is small, but has everything you need for a comfortable stay!
