700 sq ft one bedroom vacation rental with top of the line amenities: fully stocked gourmet kitchen, sumptuous bathroom, and cozy and romantic bedroom with brand new memory foam mattress. Ideally suited for an adult couple traveling alone, and/or with pets. Eastlake Victorian carriage house, architecturally stunning. Owner received green design award for historic renovation. This unit exudes the charm of a bygone era, but has all the conveniences of modern living! Balcony overlooks main property, garden, and scenic West Cliff Drive. Peek ocean view. Private on-site parking and plenty of privacy, yet only minutes away from world-class dinning, a dream-like 10k jog/run/stroll right outside your doorstep, scenic vistas, and many opportunities to recreate and enjoy the great outdoors. Owner provides coffee, decaf, tea, and beverages for your consumption. Garage space available for storage of larger items, and washer/dryer available for longer term guests. Strictly no smoking, please.
The sleeper sofa can sleep two children or one adult comfortably. I would say that the unit is NOT ideally suited for infants or toddlers. Bedroom is cozy, and cannot, under any circumstances, accommodate a portable crib, and hardwood floors and a steep staircase may not be the best combination for children under the age of 7 or so, but please contact me and we can discuss further....moreless

About the owner: Extroverted host seeks fun-loving guests who are interested in exploring the wonderland of Santa Cruz, California. My goal is to make your stay a memorable one. I love animals, esp well-behaved ones, and pet companions are always welcome in my vacation rental!
Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz: I never thought I would find myself living in a frilly Victorian---I am more the mid-century, post-modern type---but I have grown to love and appreciate the historic nature of my home and it's architectural style. And the view isn't bad, either. :-) I would say this vacation rental is most ideally suited to guests who are seeking non-standard lodging/accommodations with a SUPERB location.
The Unique Benefits at this Barn: Landmark property registered on the National directory as 'Epworth-by-the-sea'. The carriage house was actually used to house a buggy and horses during the late 1800's! The bottom floor has been converted into a garage and storage; the top floor is the rental unit. Many of the original design features remain, including rough hewn floors made with redwood harvested from the Santa Cruz mountains more than 100 years ago.
