About Anina Van Alstine
I am a cook, gardener, dancer, walker, swimmer and I love France and Italy. I loved this property the minute I discovered it. I hope that you will also enjoy the contemporary feel of this home. I grew up in Europe and also in the mountains of North Carolina; the sophistication and yet sense of nature at the home appealed to me immediately. My father was an architect. He would have loved this property and I am sorry he never got to see it.
Anina Van Alstine purchased this Studio in 2007
Why Anina Van Alstine chose Seabright
It is delightful! a private patio with non-fruiting olive tree and a light filled main room. There is room to dance and to do a movement practice. There is a wonderful sound system and the kitchen was created for a real cook. I love the colors and the hand held European shower in the bathroom. The lighting is fabulous, and I have decorated with Haitian and Mexican paintings as well as photographs of France and a Balinese hanging. Nothing is funky about the place... You can walk or bike to down town and to local restaurants such as ' La Posta', 'linda's', ' Lillian's' and ' The Buttery'.The neighborhood is terrific. My favorite thing to do is to walk over to Verve for coffee, then down Seabright beach and the Walton Lighthouse...or you could go to ' Aldo's' and hang out!!!
What makes this Studio unique
Seabright, Santa Cruz, and all the benefits our community has to offer. A little patio with Proteas and other Australian plantings. I live at the back of the property and in the summer, will offer you vegetables as they grow. There is french and spanish lavender and rosemary in the garden as well.

Clean, modern, location, location,location
Anina was friendly and responsive to texts. Note: you cannot store sports gear inside the studio but Anina may have space in her garage if you ask her before you book. Also, note that one of the futons has a comfortable memory foam cover.
This location is centrally located in Santa Cruz in a nice neighborhood. Whole foods, staff of life, the beaches, Charlie Hong Kong's, and the pacific climbing gym were some of my frequent stops. For entertainment the Rio & the crepe place are near by entertainment options.
Having Ryan as a guest was a real pleasure.He seemed to enjoy Santa Cruz and living here very much. To see someone who lives on the other side of the country settle in so quickly To the Santa Cruz life, complete with surfboards, it is a joy.I could tell he loved being here- and when we did see each other in passing, he always had a great smile! He left the place clean, and I hope that one day he’ll come back again.
Beautiful, Comfortable Studio
We enjoyed our one-month stay at this studio. It is very comfortable and in a quiet and safe neighborhood. About a half mile to the beach, so an easy walk or bike ride to the beach and restaurants. The studio is very well designed and built, bright with large windows and beautiful hardwood floors. The kitchen is well-equipped. I enjoyed the sitting area in the garden.
Thank you so much! It was a pleasure to have you . I hope you come back!
