Clean, cozy, comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and another couple shared this house for a short getaway in Santa Cruz recently. It was the perfect place for us to stay. The house is very inviting with its beautiful landscaping, hot tub and comfortable beds. It is about a five minute drive to the Boardwalk and a short cab ride to the downtown area where there are great restaurants and nightlife. All in all I would definitely recommend this house and would stay there again on my next trip to Santa Cruz.

Quaint, comfortable and private.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is centrally located. It has a private backyard and a separate gated front yard that also offers privacy. It has everything you need while in a home-away from home. The beach is maybe 2 blocks away. The owners are easy to deal with. Totally enjoyed it.

Lovely Cottage

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 5 days at this charming cottage and had a wonderful time. It is compact, though a couple with young kids would be fine. Kitchen is fine with a nice gas stove. I had to buy a few utensils that I left for everyone. Living room is comfy, but an ottoman would be nice to put your feet up. We brought a bedspread to cover the nice white couch, so we didn't need to worry. TV was great. The queen bed is quite firm. We had brought a couple of small fans, and I was glad we did, although there was a larger one in the closet. A clip light is needed if you like to read in bed. The backyard, bbq, and hot tub were wonderful! Loved the privacy and peacefulness. The apricot tree was really messy when we were there, but not a big deal. Wonderful location. It made me a fan of Santa Cruz again!

The Neff Family Weekend in Santa Cruz

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4, plus our boxer dog, had a fabulous weekend get away at this lovely cottage. It was the perfect size for my 9 year old Autistic daughter and 5 year old son. The gate/fence around the property kept my kids and dog safe and allowed for fun in the hot tub, s'more making in the fire pit, and hubby barbequed on the propane grill. We were in walking distance to the Harbor Café where we enjoyed breakfast as well as the Seabright Brewery. Both are dog friendly as well as Cowell's Beach / Boardwalk. We will most likely stay here again next year!

The cottage is well appointed and lovely. I liked the location, .

  • 5 of 5

The location of this charming cottage was ideal for me. I loved the harbor , and the adjacent beach front. It was close enough to the boardwalk, but far enough away to provide quiet walks. Grab a coffee and watch the sunrise at the Cafe. PERFECT!

Adorable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this adorable cottage. The interior design is very pretty and unique. We loved spending the evenings in the backyard with the fire pit going. However, we did not use the hot tub. Perhaps next time.

The yards were very secure allowing our little dog to roam around. The twin beds are a bit loud when you move in them but we got used to it.

Very quite neighborhood and close to the beach. There is a little grocery store right around the corner which was nice.

Thank you for opening up your home and providing such a comfortable place to vacation in. We will be back for sure.
