About the property

House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 2

Ideal for a romantic retreat to the Central California Coast, this Santa Cruz vacation studio is cute, well-stocked, and even boasts a shared hot tub! Designed for getting away from it all, you won't find a TV or cable here, but you will have WiFi and a short walk right to the sandy beach.

With a quick 10-minute walk to the shore and gorgeous Mitchell Cove, this location is also only about a mile to the one-of-a-kind Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk! The Wharf is also popular destination down at the shore for restaurants and bars, or venture to one of the surrounding communities like Aptos, Capitola, or Rio Del Mar for even more beach access, eateries, and galleries.

Red walls and an English cottage decor make this Santa Cruz getaway both laid-back and charming. Spend an afternoon on the patio reading a book, soaking in the hot tub, or just lounging on the comfortable queen-size bed. You'll also have a full bathroom and basic appliances - mainly a coffeemaker and a refrigerator.

Meals will be no problem though, in town you can pick up a pizza, stop at a taqueria for lunch, or splurge on a special seafood dinner. There's also a charcoal grill on the patio, so you can stop at the store, pick up some steaks, and plan a cookout for a sunny afternoon.

Great for a couple or even a solo trip to relax and recharge, this studio vacation getaway in the heart of Santa Cruz is a great home base for exploring all this amazing region has to offer! Whether you stay put and enjoy the beach just blocks from your door or plan day trips to Monterey (42 miles south) or San Francisco (73 miles north), this English Garden Suite is a lovely home-away-from-home.

About Vacasa of the Central California Coast

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Lovely garden cottage vacation

  • 5 of 5

The studio garden cottage didn't feel like a cramped space at all! The cobbled path and artfully arranged planting lead to a secluded Oasis in Santa Cruz.<br />

<br />

The location is phenomenal; I found multiple local coffee shops and restaurants within walking distance, and if you're feeling adventurous, it's a good long walk to the wharf.<br />

<br />

I felt safe in the early morning and in the late evening coming and going, and the bed was like a cloud. Best bed I've ever stayed on for travel. I didn't wake up with numb limbs or back pain.

Not as expected for the price

  • 2 of 5

The only positive was the hot tub Very clean. Only 1 chair in the bed room. Cheap utensils, wire coat hangers. Finally found a fan and a space heater. Many extension cords, no hand rails in the bathroom and on and on. We would not recommend it especially for the price.

Cute little studio near all Santa Cruz attractions

  • 4 of 5

Studio is a s described. Clean & ready upon arrival.

A few details for the owners: Sliding track door needs to be oiled for easy sliding. An additional trash can would also be helpful.

Lovely, private cottage

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a romantic weekend away - and this pretty little place made it happen! It was very nice having a hot tub just feet away on a lush patio. Definitely would go back!
