Great place in west Santa Cruz

  • 5 of 5

Ideally located, the cottage is very comfortable and well appointed. It has been beautifully renovated. We appreciated the Cuisinart pans, and the sand toys for kids.

A wonderful place to stay in Santa Cruz

  • 5 of 5

We just spent our fourth annual stay at the cozy, clean, convenient Casita de Santa Cruz. It is a block from the ocean and two minutes further to the Lighthouse. We walk to the Wharf and the Boardwalk and, to ease our muscles from the exertions of dining at one of the great restaurants on the Wharf, slip into the hot tub when we get back. The Casita is perfect for two couples and we certainly plan to be back next year!

Lovely guest home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week for a surf trip to Cowell's surf break. Great location, block and a half walk to the break (5-10 minute walk to Steamers Lane). Home was well taken care of: clean, comfy, well stocked kitchen with everything you might need, hot showers (inside and outside), & very comfortable beds.

We are frequent travelers (east coast, west coast, central america, PR)... and this house is easily the nicest house we have stayed in. The only downside to this house, is the spotty wi-fi. That's not necessarily a knock on this property, it may just be the area. Would absolutely rent this home again.

I chose this rental because we needed access to both the University of California at Santa Cruz, and the Long Marine Lab. It is ideally situated to hop on Bay and drive up to UCSC, or jump on Delaware and go to the Marine Lab, not to mention within walking distance of the wharf, the Boardwalk, and Cowell and Main beaches. You can hear the sea lions barking at night! The house is very clean and there are ample towels and beach towels. We enjoyed using the barbecue and the hot tub.

Great location for morning walks/runs along beautiful West Cliff Drive. Easy walk to beach & boardwalk. The house is neat & clean with all necessary amenities. Nice little patio with BBQ & hot tub.

Jill was vet accommodating & easy to work with. Highly recommend!
