Santa Cruz studio description

Come stay in our west-side cottage - the perfect place to experience Santa Cruz like a local. We are one mile from the beach and boardwalk and ten blocks from downtown. Everything in Santa Cruz is easy to access from this charming, updated spot.

The Space
This light filled one room studio is cozy, private and comfortable. Located behind a gate on a quiet street, your space comes with a porch and patio furniture, perfect for morning coffee and bird watching. The complete kitchen has all the amenities you need. There is a comfortable new couch, and the plush queen bed comes with new bedding and super soft 500 thread count sheets. The bath has a stall shower and plenty of new, fluffy towels.

The neighborhood
The walkability of our spot makes it essential Santa Cruz. We are one mile from the beach and boardwalk and a quarter mile from downtown. The beach is a short 5 minute bike ride or 20 minute walk.

Even closer to home, walk a few blocks to Emily’s Bakery, Sabieng Thai, or Taqueria Vallarta. We are also only a few blocks from an organic grocery and health store.

Our neighborhood is filled with some of the oldest Victorian’s in the City; including ours. This property was established in 1888. However, the cottage was built in 2006.

Getting Around
You do not need a car to experience Santa Cruz from our house. Everything you want to see in Santa Cruz is a walk or bike ride away - including downtown, the beach, the boardwalk, West Cliff, tacos, an organic grocery store and a plethora of coffee shops. The City bus station is a short ten minute walk.

Guest Access
Guests are entitled to one parking spot in our driveway. Guests are welcome to use our backyard, grill and furniture.

Interaction with Hosts
We live on the property but will not interfere with your stay. Your apartment is completely detached from our main house and has a separate entrance. We will respect your privacy, but of course, are always welcome for questions.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: We have been married for 3 years and have a beautiful 18 month old daughter who is the love of our life. We have lived in Santa Cruz for 5 years and would never consider moving anywhere else!

          Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
          We fell in love with this property because of the historic charm of the main house and the central location to all of our favorite Santa Cruz activities.

          The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
          We live on a street that only serves the High School, which means that it is very quiet here when school is not in session. You can hear the sea lions, and on very quiet nights you can hear the waves! In the morning you see the sunrise from the bed.
