The space

We are offering a nice sized room in our back house. It has been newly renovated in the inside with new floors and is a great place to stay while enjoying the beach and sun in Santa Cruz! We are just 10 minutes walking distance from Seabright Beach, the Harbor, the Boardwalk, Downtown, the Wharf, the San Lorenzo River, Twin Lakes Beach, Whole Foods, Staff of life, the Buttery (Only the best bakery in town) and numerous great restaurants, bars, Coffee Shops just 5 minutes by feet or 2 minutes by bike.

The room has it's own private entry separate from the main house, and you will need to walk up a flight of stairs. The entrance to your room is through a large Barn Door that we custom built for the space. There is an immaculate King sized bed with deluxe 500 thread count 100% cotton sheets. There is a small fridge and microwave for you to chill some wine and heat up your leftovers, and a K-cup coffee maker. There is wi-fi access all over the house, so you can watch Netflix at night in the privacy of your room. Please note that we do not have a TV in the room. The bathroom is located off the adjacent room. It is 90% your private bath. During the week my husband trains clients and they use the bathroom, so weekend gusts will have it all to themselves ;)

Remember when you are renting with Airbnb, you are entering into our home, this is not a hotel service, so please be respectful of our space. There are no hotels in Seabright, so our place is the closest guesthouse to the beach other than the various Airbnb's in the neighborhood. Santa Cruz is a vacation town, and our varied prices reflect the location, the time of year, and the uniqueness of the space we offer. Thank you for considering our space, we are really excited to welcome new visitors!

This was a great place to stay. Easy walk in to the Boardwalk. 10min drive to 41st to surf 'The Hook' (very cool). Room was quite nice too and very easy instructions. The hosts were away but they organised a friend to house-sit and he was very helpful. Gave us some local surf tip…

The room was all new and nicely decorated, super comfy bed with nice sheets, but I'd just stress that the toilet is in the main house, not the annex. So you'll have to go outside and into the main house crossing the host's kitchen to use the loo.

Alina, thanks for your review, and I appreciate your feedback as well. In our listing we make it clear that the bathroom is located in the main house, so you may have overlooked that when you booked our place.

For my first trip to Santa Cruz, I could not have picked out a more perfect place than this. Stephanie and Cris' cottage is the epitome of cozy and homely, and their hospitality was great as well. You will be hard pressed to find a more centrally located, yet quiet and comforta…
