  • Beautiful tall windows, woodsy view

    "Gorgeous setting in the woods, beautiful large windows downstairs overlooks the woods and a creek. It reminds me of the 1970's in a nice way. Yes, it's dated, not flashy, not fancy, and it's what we expected from the description. We arrived at a cold time of year and we were not interested in tending the wood stove, so we relied on the regular heater and we brought along our own down comforter, expecting it to be cold. It was cold! Next time, long underwear and two down comforters! Again, we expected it to be cold, and we would happily stay here again. It is not for someone wanting an updated, fancy lodge or spa-type lodgings. Quiet, peaceful, lovely location. We brought our food as we did not want to drive to town. We wanted to be there and enjoy, and we did."

  • The Perfect Holiday Home

    "We loved our stay here. The only negative comment was that we didn't plan to stay longer! The decor and facilities suited our needs perfectly. Having the bikes was also a big plus. Santa Cruz is great for cycling around and easier than the car. I'll definitely stay again and next time for longer."

  • Cozy studio in perfect location!

    "This studio was a perfect accommodation for our needs! It's conveniently located to many tourist attractions which we visited during our brief stay - only a 30-40 minute drive to places such as Napa Valley, Golden Gate Park, Muir wooods, Sausalito etc. The studio was tastefully decorated, cozy and immaculately clean. Deborah and Keith are very friendly and promptly respond back to any questions, requests or concerns. I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the area!"

  • Relaxing birthday weekend

    "I booked Sea Myst for 3 nights for my 60th birthday with my wife. The home is rustic yet reasonably comfortable, tidy, well provisioned and tastefully decorated. The hot tub, and heating work well and the master bedroom bed is very comfortable with the hi quality linens making crawling in wonderful. We felt that the Master BR flat screen is too far from the bed for comfortable viewing and could just as easily be mounted in a fold down on the middle beam at the foot of the bed. However there is a huge new screen in the LR. We ended up watching films (good wifi signal only got wacky during the peak of the storm) on the laptop. We arrived on the first really cold rainy weekend, and discovered there was no wood for the fireplace and the top oven was inoperative requiring the birthday cake to go in the lower oven which didn't reach proper heat and took 2 hours to bake coming out like hard biscotti. From talking to the owner upon discovering this, he explained that the kitchen was original 1972 and a remodel was coming. Both would have been important to know going in as our intent was not to move the car once we parked until we left so I didn't drive out to get firewood or find a repairman for the oven. Luckily we brought a bunch of chinese takeout that lasted us the entire time. The second BR in one side of a converted garage and is best suited for responsible children who you won't mind sharing your bathtub with as it only has a half bath adjacent to it. It would be somewhat awkward for two adult couples, I think. Be careful with the locks on the second BR because they could get locked in. That could be a safety hazard if someone can't get out. The location is the best feature of Sea Myst. Walking to the beach and bluffs is at the end of the street and was our main reason for selecting it. The owners have plenty of amenities, rain coats, bikes, games, umbrellas flashlights and extensive library of books. It was fun looking at Scientific American issues from 1964 in the cozy loft. Although the LR couch sectional is new it isn't the kind of piece that was easy to sink into cozily with a book and a beverage for an afternoon. It was hard to feel really comfortable on it. Overall the time went by way too fast. With an updated and fully functional kitchen and attention to the change in the seasons this place would rate five stars."
