Overview

Santa Cruz Studio Rental Photos and Description

136 Younger Way is located atop Santa Cruz's Beach Hill, an easy downhill stroll to the Pacific Ocean, Main Beach volleyball courts, the historic Santa Cruz Wharf and the famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Surfers and boogie boarders are just minutes away from Cowell’s (beginner waves) and Steamer Lane (expert waves). Explore downtown shops, restaurants and coffee shops which are easily accessible by a 10 minute walk. There are endless other recreational options in Santa Cruz County including mountain biking, hiking, sailing, kayaking and scenic trains through redwood forests.

The guest cottage is a completely renovated (2012) studio with one bath and kitchenette, located on the same property as a Craftsman style home. High ceilings allow for an open feel within the studio cottage. Enjoy the small deck area outside and shared BBQ with the main house on the property.

This cottage is a relaxing getaway and perfect retreat. The property lies on a quiet one way residential street occupied almost solely by year round residents.

If you need more space, you can also view the VRBO listing for the main home - VRBO listing #413289. We live in the main house as our primary residence, but rent it during the summer months, holidays, and some weekends.

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 studio 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 home in 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 relaxed!

We decided to down size when we moved to Santa Cruz, and we loved the Craftsman architecture of this home and the outdoor spaces. We converted the single stall garage into a cottage unit by adding a small addition on the side. We wanted a place for grandparents and friends from the midwest to stay when they came to visit. All of our guests have loved the little cottage.

What makes this studio 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 on our bikes for some boogie boarding fun, or relax at home listening to the summer beach concerts.

This little studio cottage is small, but has everything you need for a comfortable stay!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I drove from Utah for a much needed getaway. We absolutely loved this cottage! It was perfect for 2 and had everything you need. We were only a couple blocks from the beach and close to many restaurants so it was a prime location. It had so much more character than a hotel! We did not get to meet Chad or Jodi but they left a welcome book with detailed instructions on everything we needed. It was a great vacation spot and we would love to return! Thank you for sharing your great cottage Chad and Jodi!

Great Location to Experience Santa Cruz

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this cottage. The location is great, it's walkable to both the wharf and downtown areas. It provided us a great central location to explore the surrounding area (Big Basin, Ano Nuevo, etc).

The cottage itself was very comfortable and clean, and it had everything we needed for having breakfast and tea. The check-in and check-out procedures were a breeze, and the owner was very friendly in our communication.

Should our travels bring us back to Santa Cruz, we will definitely book again.

Perfect Location in Santa Cruz

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay here. Had a little hiccup when we arrived just after 3:00 on check-in date (cleaners hadn't arrived yet so previous renters towels & sheets were on the floor) but I called the owner and got a response within a few minutes. We went out for a quick bite and by the time we got back we were in ship-shape! Cute little studio, had what we needed for our stay-cation (we live just over the hill). We had our 8 year old daughter with us and there was room to set up her twin airbed at the foot of our bed. So much nicer than staying in a hotel room to have the kitchenette. And very quiet at night, so we could sleep after a long day of Boardwalk and beach activities. Street parking was perfect, we could park just a few feet away. The walk down the hill into downtown was easy, too. It really is perfectly located. Would definitely book again!

We enjoyed cottage. It was very conveniently located and totally met our needs that weekend. We did not need transportation @ that location, as we walked everywhere- beach, coffee shops, restaurants, even a market! It was a very quiet place, in fact a little too quiet, as there was no radio/cd (no TV was great!). The owners were great to respond to our inquiry e-mails, even phone messages.

Lovely little cottage!

  • 5 of 5
Lovely little cottage. They did a great job on the renovation. Much nicer than anything you could get at a local motel in that price range. Bed was nice and comfy. Loved the little deck outside with Adirondack chairs for relaxing in the evenings. Was easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants downtown (15 min) and only 3 blocks from the beach and boardwalk. One caveat is the rather steep hill you need to walk up to get there. If you're young and fit, not a big deal. But just something to be aware of! We were struggling to push our 30 lb son up the hill in his stroller! Time to hit the gym more often. :-)

Great studio with modern amenities, all updated furnishings and newer finishes. A very quiet setting only blocks from major attractions, the beach, wharf, and restaurants. Had wanted to be able to just park the car and walk everywhere for our entire stay, and it was perfectly located to do just that. The Studio is really made for two, but stayed with my two younger boys and we fit just fine. Great for a small family get-a-way or a romatic weekend for two. Best part is that you are so close to the heart of Santa Cruz, but it is so quiet and out of the way, sleeping in is no problem! Thanks for everything, Craig.
