Santa Cruz Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Convertible sofa, Sleeps 4

Enjoy a glass of wine while watching our Hummingbirds on your Private Deck or soak in the Hot Tub on the Brick Courtyard Overlooking the Redwoods, then sidle up to a warm Fireplace to watch your favorite movies on a 50-inch Plasma TV before sliding into a luxurious Memory Foam Bed and cozy comforter to rest up for another fun day taking in the Santa Cruz sites and attractions.

Be our guest at Scott's Guest House where 1-4 people sleep comfortably in a Queen Platform Bed in the 12-foot x 15-foot bedroom and a Full-size Sleeper in the light & airy 14-foot x 16-foot living room. The living room has Vaulted Ceiling with wood beams, Skylights and a Ceiling Fan above a dramatic burgundy-colored carpet.

The efficient kitchenette is fully-equipped for making a quick snack or cooking a gourmet meal. The fully-tiled bathroom with shower is bright and loaded with amenities. Don't worry if you've forgotten something. We've got it for you.

Big Dogs OK, We Love Pets!: When we travel we bring our two dogs with us. We think you should, too. We even have dishes, toys, a bed, and a special place for your well-behaved pet. Scott's Guest House is definitely pet-friendly.

Easily Go Anywhere You Want to Go: Scott's Guest House provides easy access to all Santa Cruz County attractions. Visit the historic Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk amusement park. Santa Cruz has perfect California beaches for you to sun, surf, and play. Marvel at challenging waves at Steamer?s Lane or towering redwood trees at Henry Cowell State Park (SP). Greet the Monarch butterflies at Natural Bridges SP or the elephant seals at Ano Nuevo SP.

Go antiquing in Moss Landing. Taste local Santa Cruz wines. Shop, dine, or really let loose and party at the Pacific Garden Mall downtown or beachside in Capitola-by-the-Sea.

Why Steve Scott chose Santa Cruz

Scott's Guest House is private yet close in to all that Santa Cruz has to offer. It is nestled next to a forest full of Redwoods, Oak, and Manzanita but close to Freeway Access to quickly take you to any place you want in Santa Cruz. Carmel, Big Sur, and the Monterey Peninsula is 45 minutes away, San Francisco is just 90 minutes.

What makes this apartment unique

When we say “Be Our Guest” we mean it. As you onsite hosts we can add significantly to your stay with the personal attention that seniors, international travelers, families with pets or small children, or anyone needing extra care may find desirable.

Business travelers find they get twice the comforts for half the price comapred to the nearby Hilton Santa Cruz. Free hi-speed wifi Internet access, laptop if you need one as well as HP printer/copier/scanner & office supplies create a mini-business center.

Guests get special rates when they relax with an onsite, 60 or 90-minute Full-body Massage from a licensed and certified massage practitioner. Perfect for a Romantic Weekend or Girl's Getaway.

Scott's guest house

  • 5 of 5

Scott's guest house offered us a wonderful retreat from the hustle and bustle of day to day city life. Both Steve and Marie were extremely hospitable and took care of all our needs. The place is perfectly located- it feels as if you are in the middle of the woods and yet, one is very close to the freeway and not more than a 10 min drive from Santa Cruz downtown. The living room has large glass windows and it was such a joy to wake up every morning and experience the forest outside right from my bed. The place is well furnished and interior decor is nicely done (and not overdone) with lot of attention to detail. The close proximity to hummingbirds, thanks to the numerous hummingbird feeders and a jacuzzi in the back yard really added to my over all experience of the place. The kitchen is small yet extremely functional. The bed room and the living room are not separated by a wall- not that this is a problem, but just something to keep in mind for those who like to sleep in separate rooms because of privacy, noise issues etc. Overall , we had a wonderful experience and hope to go back again. Highly recommended.

Adding this GEM to my rental favorites!

  • 5 of 5

As a frequent renter of vacation homes I am glad to add this lovely guest house to my 5 star list. The owners are very friendly and helpful and she is a licensed massage therapist. The property is accessible to the freeways and easy to find.

The peaceful surroundings of redwoods, gardens and hummingbirds greet you upon entering the guest house. The interior is window filled in the living area with lots of great light. Super functional galley kitchen, comfortable bed and futon. The owners have thought of everything you might need. The private outdoor spa was a definite plus!

You have found the right place in this delightful vacation spot!

Scott's guest house

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were so comfortable. Everything was provided for our comfort. The location was perfect being close to mountains and beaches. But mostly it was the hospitality of our hosts. They both were so friendly and concerned for our every comfort.

Looking at the calendar for our next amazing stay at Scott's!!

  • 5 of 5

We luxuriated for a week at Scott's Guest House! Every need was met, from their gracious greeting when we arrived, to their warm thank you when we left. Hummingbirds surrounded us as we sat on the redwood deck in the redwoods! We slept in comfort on the amazing memory foam bed, cooked in the fully equipped compact kitchen, relaxed in the hot tub under the stars and explored some of the local attractions. Our little dog even had her own memory foam bed and was welcomed just as graciously! It was quiet when we wanted it quiet, and the big screen tv provided entertainment when we wanted the outside world! Movie theater, local restaurants ,shopping within minutes away, but as you sit on the deck or inside the cozy "cabin" you can't hear anything but the sounds of nature all around you! We will be going back soon for another nourishing, nurturing time away! Thanks Mari and Steve for creating such an oasis!

Dog friendly and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We found this place here on VRBO. We were looking for a place to stay while we are at a dog training conference for 5 days. We did our research and it really wasnt much more to stay here than in a hotel. It is behind their house and it is wonderful. Full kitchen equipped with everything you could need . They have binders out for you with info on things to do places to go and local restraunts. They even have state park pass for you to use. There is a hottub and lots of outdoor seating. Inside is just like a little studio apartment. The bathroom is fully equipped with towels, shampoo, conditioner, new toothbrushes and toothpaste and lots more. Everything you could need is right there. The location is perfect 10-15 min drive from everything but you can still go to a place that really feels like "home" at the end of the day.
