I give this place three stars with caution. Three stars for price, facilities, and location (proximity to 17 and boardwalk). But I can't give it four stars without a few warnings for future visitors...One, the neighborhood is loud, it backs up to an apartment building and we were woken up at 5:30 with garbage collection. Two, the laundry facility is coin operated and evidently can be shared with neighbors as it was used by a "mysterious" person during our visit, this was a little alarming as the laundry is located in the back yard. Three, there is a little misleading information in the description...there are TWO double beds and Two twin beds. Overall, we had fun while staying there and the house served all of our needs. It was certainly cheaper than renting three different motel/hotel rooms. Just wanted to throw out the cautions....

Owner's Response: For a totally quiet neighborhood, please book our high-end vacation rental, just off West Cliff Drive. But garbabe trucks there too one morning a week! We do not supply ANY double beds: we provide two QUEEN beds, and another bedroom with two single beds, and TVs in two of those bedrooms. Most guests think this place a steal. We think we named it very honestly: Best Bargain in Santa Cruz. All guests get a key to the laundry room. You can lock out an unauthorized user.
