Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I spent a few days here. The cottage had everything we needed and Santa Cruz had the slow, easygoing vibe we sought to relax. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone.

Owner's Response: Our Wi-Fi internet provider Cruzio has never been an issue for any of our past guests, we are sorry to hear you were having problems
on your device.
Cellular Verizon provides the best reception for mobile phones and every AT&T has limited capacity in this neighborhood of Santa Cruz. Thank you for your cheerful review and so happy to hear you enjoyed relaxing time in Watercolour Cottage's garden patio.
Cheers! Denise & Glenn

Attention to Detail

  • 5 of 5
This charming turn of the century beach cottage was the ideal spot for our visit to Santa Cruz. The owners have meticulously decorated the cottage and provide all the comforts of home. There is a beautiful patio perfect for entertaining and relaxation.
The owners have provided beach chairs and towels for our use along with passes to the Monterey Aquarium. We highly recommend the Water Colour Cottage for your stay in Santa Cruz.

Great Location and Well-Equipped

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this cottage for two nights in Dec. 2013. We thought the cottage was super cute and very well-equipped. When we arrived, everything was spotlessly clean, and it was really easy to locate the things we needed (towels, kitchen equipment, etc.). We loved the deluxe grill on the patio (a rare find in vacation rentals!). The location just a few blocks from West Cliff Drive was perfect for us. The bedroom is tiny, but has a large closet with lots of shelves and hangers. You do get a fair amount of neighbor noise in this location (people working in their yards, kids playing, dogs barking, etc.) - for city dwellers, it's nothing out of the ordinary and not noticeable, but if you are looking for a really secluded spot where you do not see or hear others, you should be aware of this. Highly recommended.

Watercolour Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Home was as advertised. Neat, clean and the perfect size for one or two guests. I stayed as a single, so plenty of room. A short walk to the ocean(Surf museum) and short drive for groceries. Very quiet street. Met the owner and was very accommodating. Would definitely recommend to others and would stay there again.
