Small garden cottage with a kitchenette and small sleeping loft that has a queen futon. This is a very cute, very cozy space -- perfect for a couple in need of a weekend getaway.
Longer stays also welcome.
Large kitchen and bathroom in main house.

The space

Craftsman style country home on a sunny half acre just South of Santa Cruz. The property is a ten minute drive from beaches and excellent small restaurants. We are designed for indoor outdoor living. Located 60 min from Silicon Valley and 90 min South of San Francisco in a country setting, we are a beautiful 40 min drive North of Monterey Bay Aquarium. Take a day trip to Big Sur. Or hike in the nearby Redwoods. Or grab a bike and tour the local wineries and apple orchards just minutes from the house. Santa Cruz has a vibrant music and dance scene, a Boardwalk. Sailing, surfing, kayaking (or I can give you a rowing lesson). Access to a car and transportation from the airport open for discussion... Bedroom and guest cottage are both perfect for a couple. A larger group can book the main house -- up to three couples. Kids and pets welcome -- no indoor smoking please.

Optional Amenity (Inquire Ahead) Wood-Heated Hot Tub: May be available depending on drought and other restrictions.

Guest access

Cottage guests access the bathroom and kitchen through the back door. The bathroom in the main house is shared between the cottage guests and the small bedroom.
Guests who need ready bathroom access will be more comfortable in the small bedroom as it adjoins the bathroom.

Interaction with guests

I work multiple jobs and, while I love people and enjoy AirBandB guests, the reality is that I am often gone from home. We have dogs and cats.

Other things to note

I do not mind late arrivals.
We love animals and have both cats and dogs.
Our animals are not allowed in the guest rooms because many guests have allergies. People who ar super allergic won't be comfortable. But we have many guests with mild allergies who do just fine.


House Rules

Let us know ahead of time if you plan to bring an animal. We have cats and dogs.

The cottage was small, quiet and perfect. felt very private and personal. There was peaceful time spent in the garden area, relaxing. It's not a far drive from some great orchards and diners. And the dogs are a bonus.

We had booked the Guest Cottage, and Christine had contacted me in advance to see if we could stay in the main house master bedroom due to unforeseen circumstances. We agreed, and were happy to have a larger space. We arrived late at night and Christine had left a light on, and had a nice note explaining things. We were surprised to find that the master bedroom was not really a bedroom, but more of a loft space open to the main house and visitors below. The bathroom door was a curtain, and there was no door to the bedroom. The bed was comfortable and partially tucked away in a nice nook. The open space was not so much an issue, but privacy, romance, and relaxation were not happening as much as if we had a door, or even if we had known in advance that it was a loft. The room space was airy and inviting, regardless. WiFi was very spotty upstairs. Had a lovely tour of the property from another guest, and enjoyed the beautiful and well-maintained gardens. Easy parking. Had a nice stay overall!

The cottage is very small, and the loft bed was a little scary-looking for my girlfriend, but Christine helped us make it so comfortable that we almost never wanted to leave!

Had a terrific stay at Christine's cottage. Cute little cottage in the back of her property. Christine was a great host. Easy to communicate with and very laid back. Every morning fresh coffee was waiting for us. This was my first air bnb trip and I was very pleased.

Christine's place is delightful, peaceful, and a great central location to the coast. She was very flexible with us. We enjoyed the cottage.

I am an over employed PA in love with the country life. The property is a rambling half acre of flowers, vegetable gardens an fruit trees in the hilly setting of South Santa Cruz County. Large sunny decks flank the main house and invite guests outside to enjoy morning coffee and …
