About Scott Johnson
Hello, I’m Shirley, your host, and I would like to share a bit of the history of Arbor House Cottage. Arbor House 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 delicious 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. Sincerely, Shirley
Scott Johnson purchased this Cottage in 1946

Best location for our 4 day get-a-way!
This was just one of our many, many stays. Perfect time of the year to visit. School I s in session so the week days are quite with few beach goers. The morning fog burns off early and the sun stays out most of the day.
Ok, so enough about the weather. Love this little Cottage!
Everthing you need for your home away from home stay. Comfy bed. Cozy living room. Full functioning Kitchen albeit small, if you prep and plan its a cinch to cook in. Love, love the deck! Period! The outdoor shower is the bomb. I don't th the the television was turned on more than twice.
Hope everyone who reads this gets the opportunity to stay here at least once. Cheers! Until next year Arbor House!
Thanks for a great shout out! Your review will help a lot of future guests make their decision to stay with us. We appreciate your loyalty and have reserved your stay for next September. Until then....
Wonderfully cozy beach front cottage in Santa Cruz!
This place is a slice of heaven! It was just the escape from the city we needed. There is a great view from the back deck, and we enjoyed our morning coffee on the front porch. This place is very peaceful, and literally steps from the beach. The boardwalk is a 5 min drive. Lots walking distance. The cottage has every amenity you can think of, and although the kitchen is compact, it has every gadget you could desire to cook like it was your home. We hope to return soon! Thank you for sharing your cottage with us! We hope to return soon!
Perfect home for a weekend getaway. Cody, well equipped, and adorably decorated...easy walk to dinner at the marina.
Wonderful! You hit all the high points. Thank you and hope to host you again.
Very close to the beach, cute house!
The house was located close to the beach and harbor. On the beach there is a local coffee shop where you can get pastries and coffee which is nice because the location is so close!
Very cute, cozy little house. Had all the amenities we needed. Owner responded right away to answer my question.
Great small place to stay if you love the outdoors! Steps to the marina and all that it has. Steps to the big sandy beach. Waves, gulls and sea lions to put you to sleep. great back deck with the view to have your family meals. Small house gem.
Beach Volleyball, Famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, Santa Cruz Pier, The Skunk Train, Downtown Santa Cruz and Downtown Capitola Village are all just 5 minutes away..........Carmel and Monterey are a 45 minute drive..........A variety of public and private chartered tours on the Bay are available, book a Wine Tasting Tour or Deep Sea Fishing excursion and Much, Much More!
