About Jodi Mulder
We moved to Santa Cruz in July 2011 from Chicago. It's been quite a culture shift; but we love it, we love the relaxed and friendly culture of Santa Cruz, we really think there's no place like it and we have traveled all over the world. We've been married 16 years and love sharing new experiences We've traveled to 41 countries together and have a passion for social justice issues; both globally and locally. Chad is currently pursuing a socially minded start up company focused on job creation in Rwanda and Jodi works as a psychotherapist at UCSC's Counseling & Psychological Services. Our boys love living in Santa Cruz; playing at the beach, soccer at Depot Park, or riding their scooters at the Bike Park.
Jodi Mulder purchased this house in 2011
Why Jodi Mulder chose Santa Cruz
We took a 12 week sabbatical in 2009; volunteering for a fair trade retailer who was located in Santa Cruz. We spent 6 weeks in Santa Cruz and 6 weeks in East Africa. After returning home to Chicago, we decided to pursue a different journey in life, sold our house and in time decided we wanted Santa Cruz to be our new home. We love the relaxed neighborhood feel up on Beach Hill, it's so close to all the action, but being on a one way street keeps it quiet and relaxing!
We love the Craftsman style home with lots of light and character throughout; as well as the great outdoor spaces of the home.
What makes this house unique
Relaxation and fun are the two things we love about living at 136 Younger Way. We can stroll down to the beach for 30 minutes, hop our bikes and for some boogie boarding fun, or relax on the front porch listening to the summer beach concerts.
Guestbook comments from the owner
This house was perfect for us! We were visiting our kids at UCSC over the Thanksgiving holiday. I cooked a full meal for 12 people in the kitchen, which is very nicely equipped. The house interior is very updated -- brand new kitchen, and bathroom -- with a great tub! The back patio is lovely, an had fairly lights up, and plenty of seating for our constant visitors. The house is perfectly located -- in walking distance to everything, and with easy street parking for overflow of cars, would you need it.
