Recent Santa Cruz reviews

  • Great Location to Experience Santa Cruz

    "We had a wonderful stay at this cottage. The location is great, it's walkable to both the wharf and downtown areas. It provided us a great central location to explore the surrounding area (Big Basin, Ano Nuevo, etc). The cottage itself was very comfortable and clean, and it had everything we needed for having breakfast and tea. The check-in and check-out procedures were a breeze, and the owner was very friendly in our communication. Should our travels bring us back to Santa Cruz, we will definitely book again."

  • Perfect for our extended family

    "We rented the Castle Beach Retreat for an early Thanksgiving weekend with our extended family. The space was just as advertised, with a huge open kitchen very well outfitted, a large dining table (which we extended with a portable table of our own and chairs from the downstairs dining table), and a semi-circular couch area which was great for hanging out and visiting. The weather was perfect and we had a wonderful weekend. The owners were very responsive to our one and only problem (the oven wouldn't heat up) and Rich was able to fix the problem quickly. We would love to rent this place again in the future."
