Great place and great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 3 night stay for a quick getaway over spring break. Rental was beautiful, clean, and well equipped for fun. Location was awesome. 2 block walk to Cowell's beach for a quick surf for Dad. 15-20 min walk to the Boardwalk for the kid's and beautiful West Cliff Drive was just about a block away for Mom's AM runs. Downtown is also just quick drive away. This spot had us close to all that we enjoy in Santa Cruz. Loved it!

Perfect location and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Casita de Santa Cruz is an ideal place to stay in Santa Cruz! It's close to the beach, the boardwalk, West Cliff Drive and downtown Santa Cruz. We rent bikes and barely use a car when we stay here. We like it so much, we've stayed three times. Comfortable, clean, great back yard jacuzzi and indoor fireplace, well equipped kitchen. Perfect for a family of four or two couples or any combo that fits in 2 bed rooms, each with a double bed. Cozy, yet plenty of room (2 stories). Highly recommended!

Lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely little house was impeccable. It was thoroughly clean and well stocked with towels, linens, laundry supplies, toilet paper, and there was even a new sponge for the kitchen sink! There were extra supplies in the cupboards and refrigerator as well as clothes hangers and in the closets. The beds were comfortable and the hot tub was a perfect temperature. The location was central to town and walking distance to the ocean overlook, the boardwalk, and UC Santa Cruz and was just a few minutes drive. Lastly the owner, Jill, was available to answer questions and remedy anything that came up. Overall I'd recommend this lovely little house !!
