Perfect peace

  • 5 of 5
A perfect, charming place with the benefit of great beds, a really helpful host, in a great location near but not IN the hubbub. Good for friends, lovers, family with a peaceful, positive vibe (this, from a New Yorker!).
Really easy to relax and take your head out of the daily craziness and chatter. Enjoy!

One of the Best

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in a number of Home Away locations over the last few years and this one has to be considered one of the best. The listing description is totally accurate and everything was so clean and easy to maintain. We stayed for 16 days and it really felt like our home. The house is so comfy and efficient. We could not figure out how to use the fireplace, but all we had to do was text Jill and she came right over to help us out. The location is the best also...we could walk to the beach, the wharf, loads of restaurants, and the boardwalk. We loved being at the ocean in the winter and being able to watch the sea otters with their babies and listen to the sea lions (which we could hear right from the bedroom window). Also, a winter home of the monarch butterflies is close by and such a wonderful experience! Thank you Jill for offering such a great place!!

Great location to get a feel for Santa Cruz!

  • 5 of 5
Clean, contemporary living space with pleasant back yard in a fantastic location. Set in the West Cliff area, a block from the cliffs overlooking the entire boardwalk. Walk to the boardwalk day or night. The casita itself is a charming two level, two bedroom, two bath living space. Our hosts take a lot of care to make sure your stay opens the door for a true Santa Cruz, California beach experience with their little amenities. Feel so lucky I found it! Enjoy it yourself!

Great location and wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
The location one block from the ocean and an easy walk from surfing, the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk make this great vacation rental. The property includes a BBQ and a hot tub. A well-equipped kitchen makes this property great for cooks. In-home wi-fi, Cable TV, and a telephone keeps you informed and in-touch. The only sound you hear at night is the barking of seals.

Great stay at the Casita

  • 5 of 5
Spent the weekend with 3 couples at the Jill's Casita. It was absolutely lovely. Jill takes amazing care of the house. A block away from beginner surfing at Cowell's. A little further walk along beautiful West Cliff Drive to world class surfing at Steamer's Lane. The neighborhood is in the middle of our favorite part of Santa Cruz. Coming back to the heated outdoor shower and hot tub after surfing was a dream.

The house is cozy for six adults, but great if you have a couple that is up early and doesn't mind sleeping on the comfy pull-out in the living room. We cooked all of our meals in and the kitchen had everything we needed to make pizzas, tacos, burgers on the grill, and big breakfast spreads.

I'll recommend the Casita to friends and look forward to coming back for another stay.

Owner's Response: You guys were awesome! The casita looked great after you left, you obviously took good care of it. It is so rewarding to know that all of our hard work to provide a nice place to enjoy all of what Santa Cruz has to offer does not go unnoticed! Thank you, and we look forward to having you as guests again in the not-to-distant future!
