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 Santa Cruz

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.

Beautiful, Comfortable Studio

  • 5 of 5

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.

This contemporary studio is located just four blocks from the steps to Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor. From there, you can walk to Castle (Sea bright) Beach, and to the beach restaurants and sites. There is whale watching, kayaking, paddle boarding and tourist sailing available at the harbor.It is an easy bike ride or walk to the Main beach and board walk. Must do: mmmmm Seasonal. Right now, Shakespeare Santa Cruz and Cabrillo Stage. In October, Open Studios. But, always, nature is a source of re-creation. Hiking, Biking, ocean kayaking, and more are available year round. We have many wineries and fine restaurants in the area. Sunday brunch at ' the Buttery' with live music is a treat, as are Tuesday ' neighbor nights' at La Posta. Kuumbwa Jazz club ( www.kuumbwajazz.org) has world class concerts. The various farmers markets in the area are abundant sources of organic produce, fish and meats and our local market, Shoppers Corner has everything you need, including an incredible selection of wines.

I am never bored in Santa Cruz; we have eight art cinema screens and 11 others, within the City limits.
