Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment is beautifully renovated and spacious. Parking is available at the rear of the house and is easy to enter/exit although the driveway entrance to the road is a bit narrow so be careful with wider cars! It was cold during my trip and I appreciated the heating, which warmed the main room up quickly. I didn't meet the host but email/text communication was always quick.

Charming!

  • 5 of 5

My husband I stayed here for two nights in September 2013. It is a charming apartment. Furnished with antiques, original art, and fully equipped kitchen. The location is only a short walk to downtown shopping and restaurants. The owner, Michelle, met us at the apartment and showed us the ropes and left us with local information, maps, and schedules. We will not hesitate to book with Michelle in the future. We do recommend this property!

Good property

  • 3 of 5

The property itself is nice and clean. It is well decorated. There is little natural light and no place to sit outside. The kitchen was well appointed. A kettle would be a nice addition. It is within walking distance to everything.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 4 of 5

The location and the amenities were perfectly suited to our needs. It was indeed pet friendly, including a food and water dish for our puppy. The apartment is very close to the city center for shopping and dining, and the walk to and from the city center is very pleasant and felt very safe. The apartment is outfitted with everything we needed, including the washer and dryer. We slept well, in spite of the traffic noise - my husband can sleep through anything, and I'm used to sleeping with ear plugs. We were disappointed with how expensive the apartment was, but Santa Cruz is just a very expensive area for lodging, so it was in line with other options.

Excellent

Great trip, great location. Sleeps 4 but it was pretty tight with just one bed. Recommend bringing sleeping bags if more than 2 people but overall great!
