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

Thanksgiving by the beach
We had a lovely stay at this property, which is well-appointed and very comfortable. We were there over the Thanksgiving holiday and so welcomed the nice kitchen, dishes, cutlery, cookware, etc. There's a great deck with a view of the harbor and the property is right beside the beach where there's a little cafe and other amenities. We'll be back!
Perfect getaway cottage
We love this house! Very relaxing, well equipped. Great location.
Totally as advertised and better. The location is unbelievable...5th residence from beach. The cottage is delightful and has exceedingly thoughtful amenities. Shopping bags, hats, umbrellas, etc, etc are all easily available. And the deck is wonderful and the back yard came complete with hummingbirds and a harbor view. We had a fire on the beach and were so amazed and happy to find the marshmallow roasting forks just awaiting our use.
Best rental yet!
We come to Santa Cruz yearly and this house is perfect. From location to amenities. The house is so well stocked. Great views and restaurants. Thank you for a relaxing stay
Thank you! So happy that you found us. We agree with you. PERFECT! Looking forward to your return. Scott and Shirley
P. S. We’re getting 2 new Queen beds next month in addition to keeping the twins.
Stayed here with my two kids and my mom. It was cozy and very nice. Location can’t be beat!
Location, location, location. You’re absolutely right! So very happy to have hosted you and look forward to your return. Scott and Shirley
Great location!! Cute cozy cottage feel, walking distance to lots of attractions
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. The location is just perfect with either a quick walk or short drive to so many things. The house was very clean and cozy.
