                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  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.
