Business owner, big fan of Santa Cruz, especially the Cabrillo Modern Music Festival each August.

I rent these two, stand-alone houses to UCSC students from September to June.

Great price for fully furnished accommodations in Santa Cruz in the Summer.

Front house has hardwood floors; two-story back house has a full bath and an extra half bath.

Nice, clean little house with pros and cons.

  • 3 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 5, 2013

We stayed in the front house-the rate was great. This house has pros and cons. Our reservation was a a little rough:I called the owner, who was very nice. She directed me to a website for payment-upon receipt of payment we were supposed to be sent keys. A few weeks after I realized I had not heard from the owner and we were set to arrive in less then 10 days! Only after I called was I sent a "key package" that arrived a couple of days before we left. I did not realize the listing was for 2 houses, one behind the other. That was fine, but confusing when we arrived and the keys did not work to get into the house that was pictured. (They have similar amenities.) A better description of the 2-house set-up & the parking would have been helpful. The house was charming &clean with cute furnishings & private parking with carport in back. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking - I appreciated the tea, kettle, & spices in the cupboard. The queen beds were uncomfortable, so my husband and I slept in the back room on very comfortable twin beds. When we arrived the in afternoon the house was HOT, and there was no AC. SC is not usually hot, but it does have hot days, and I was surprised that I could not find a fan-no ceiling fan, no desk fan, nothing. The house is close to businesses and college housing - it was loud. The neighborhood generally felt safe, until the last night we were there & I heard gunshots... very close. The prior night the neighbors were outside having a loud conversation, outside the window, at 1 a.m. The conversation was innocent, but three feet from our window, so definitely disruptive for sleeping. The parking in front of the house was always taken. To get behind the house you must drive between the fence and house -- it is VERY narrow (my car barely fit, a large vehicle would not). There are only 2-3 spaces for both houses, & you have to do some careful maneuvering to fit. We were left only one small towel set per person & the washer requires quarters (no soap provided). Since you pay a hefty fee for cleaning, I thought that was bogus. Tips: Bring a fan. Linens are minimal - bring extra blankets, pillows, and towels. Bring beach towels & anything else you might want at the ocean (like chairs or picnic blankets) because there is nothing there for your use. Also, the house was not rented out after us, but the cleaners still showed up a little after 10 a.m. while we were packing. I was refunded my deposit very quickly, which I really appreciated

Owner's Response: Good suggestions. Next summer, we will provide fans in the house, give guests more than two bath towels, two hand towels, and two washrags PER BED, tell those with SUVs to park on the street. We'll also put in some beach chairs and beach towels.

Thank you for letting us know what it still needs.

Summer rental, 2 adults, 4 teens

Everything was as promised and hoped. Nothing fancy but well equipped kitchen, comf bed & other furniture, ex video/Internet, easy location to access everything in Santa Cruz, off st parking. Only suggestion, new pillows. Would definitely rent again and recommend. Without a car you would need to use bus which is within easy walking distance.

Great Little Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect home base for our family trip to Santa Cruz this summer. It was cozy and homey. We had 4 adults, 2 preshoolers, 1 one year old and we were all very comfortable. With that amount of children it was such a nice option to be able to go to the house for a nap or run to the grocery store and make breakfast or lunch rather than going out for all meals. If you bring young children a baby gate is a must, there is a steep set of stairs so we ran over to Babies R Us and bought a gate. It was very comfortable and I would reccommend it for families. Although sharing 1 shower between all of us got a little interesting at times...
The house is small and is very close to others. The only complaint I have has nothing to do with the actual rental which was fine. On one side of the house just over the wall is a large apartment complex. All night long my husband, my baby and I were woken up by people partying, yelling, screaming and finally the police. I doubt that this is a regular occurrance but it was annoying.
The house was so affordable and very clean. It's not walking distance to the beach or the boardwalk (at least not with 3 kids) but it is close to a great doughnut shop and other things. We had a fun filled trip and would most definately stay here again.

A Home Away From Home!

My family and I simply loved the house! The furnishings, art work and kitchen facilities were exceptional, and the outdoor decks, provided a safe and relaxing experience. I would gladly recommend the house to anyone needing a place to stay while in Santa Cruz, and I look forward to staying there again!

Comfortable house with great location

We enjoyed our 6 days in the Santa Cruz area at 124 Pryce, a comfortable, one level 3-bedroom 1-bath house that is not pictured here. This place has a great location with a very reasonable price. It is close to Santa Cruz attractions and far enough away to avoid the constant traffic, and it is by an entrance to either the highways 1 or 17, east or north or south to the redwoods and Monterey and Big Sur or San Jose. Our friends and family who live in the area thought it was a real find. It was also clean and well stocked with books and DVDs with a comfortable front room. It was a good place for my husband and myself and our 16-year-old son. Spacious enough to give privacy to all. The house was clean, the beds were comfortable, and we found everything we needed in the kitchen. There are a lot of farmers' markets in the area. The fruit was luscious and on the way back from the aquarium we bought ripe avocados 7 for $1 and artichokes for $1 each. We rented sea kayaks at the pier and it was a short paddle to kelp beds to see dolphins, seals, sea lions and and sea otters.

Communications were very prompt, and we had phone numbers for a few people just in case we needed something.

It feels safe and is on a street that dead-ends into a river so there is limited traffic on this street. Easy parking on the street or in the back. It is only two blocks to Marianne's ice cream with excellent versions of old favorites and interesting unique flavors like cardamom/pistachio and lavendar.

We definitely would recommend this place and hope to be able to rent it in the future.
