About Scott Johnson

Arbor House Cottage has been in the family since the 1940s. Though it wasn't called Arbor House then, it was simply a rental that my parents owned. My grandparents lived across the street in the corner house and I remember going to see them and playing there. Being with them was very special to me and my siblings. After they passed, I lived there with my Mother and Father until I married and started my own family.

It is good to be able to go over from time to time, enjoy the beach and good restaurants and recall the wonderful memories!.....(note the picture on the wall in the dining room, it's not me but reminds me of me as a child on the beach).....

Scott and I have put many long and loving hours into making Arbor House the warm and welcoming Cottage that it is today.

So, 'welcome'....This is your home for the short time you are here. Enjoy, Relax and let your cares slip away.

Scott Johnson purchased this cottage in 1946

Guestbook comments from the manager

We just returned home from a five day stay in the "Arbor House" in Santa Cruz. We spent those five days with our son's family (they have a 2 and 3 year old). This cottage has everything that you could possibly need for a beach get away. The property is totally fenced in, making it great for kids. The Arbor House is decorated perfectly for a beach cottage. The beach is so close, and the harbor is so beautiful just out the kitchen window. We will definately rent this cottage again, we loved our stay there.

Perfect Lil Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Darling lil cottage. Perfect to walk a short distance to the beach. We loved sitting on the deck for breakfast, lunch and especially dinner to watch the boats coming and going. Oh, sunsets too Loved the sitting areas in the backyard to read a book. The cottage decor was so point on for the feel of the beach. Very clean!

Awesome Arbor House

  • 5 of 5
Our 15 day stay at the Arbor House was AWESOME. We throughly enjoyed on time in this quaint, clean and well equipped house again this year. The location was perfect and close to the beach and fabulous eating establishments. This is the second time we stayed at the Arbor House and hope to return in the future.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
Everything was "just as advertised" - perfect location for a beach getaway. So nice to not have to go anywhere with the beach down the street and the Crow's Nest and Palomar so close. Rooms/beds super comfortable. Our only complaint is that it got a little stuffy inside the house after a while. It would have been nice to be able to open windows in the dining area. But an easy solution to that was just to go outside! (Or use the A/C which was quite comfortable). Again, a wonderful stay

Owner's Response: Our feelings as well. PERFECT location after a 2 hour drive. Park and not get into your car again until the sad day comes that you have to return home. :-) And yes, the deck is the best place to cool down after a day at the beach. Enjoy!

Perfect stay for a perfect weekend at the beach

  • 5 of 5
We decided on renting a place in Santa Cruz for my sister's 40th, so 5 women for a weekend. The Arbor House cottage was perfect, perfect location (just a 1 minute walk from the beach), perfectly equiped (marine motif everywhere, so cute, and completely stocked in everything, extra sheets, bath towels, beach towels, awesome deck with BBQ). We kept saying all weekend how cute the house was, what a ideal location, and what a perfect choice we made. The owners Scott & Shirley were incredibly responsive to any questions, especially considering I was booking the cottage from France!! So many thanks for a wonderful stay!

A Perfect Get-away!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at your cottage from 08/08 - 08/12/12, and just loved it! The convenience of being located less than 1/2 block from the beach and harbor restaurants was much appreciated. The cottage was just perfect for the two of us and our small dog! We were able to walk our dog along the beaches and the harbor, while also travel around town, knowing that we would have a parking spot in front! We loved relaxing on the outside deck, especially in the early evening hours with drinks on hand! We also appreciated the option of taking a short walk to the beach at any time of day without worrying about obtaining a parking spot! We would end our days popping in a DVD, and being quite comfortable in the living room. LOVED IT, and intend to return! Thanks!
