There is a queen bed in the bedroom, and a full-size sofa bed in the living room. The private, sun porch room has a double sofa bed, and is used as a small, second bedroom. The cozy garden surrounding the house is fully fenced.

Wonderful cottage by the sea!
This property was absolutely perfect for our mini vacation. It is a close walk to Sunny Cove, Starbucks and great restaurants. The space is perfect and has everything you would need for an overnight stay.
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I' am happy to know that you had a good time. Come back again!
Beautiful, Blissful Time
Thank you Jeanne for giving us the pleasure to stay seven weeks at your quaint and lovely cottage. As advertised, we were able to accommodate family and friends over the holidays in comfort and captured some of the most stunning photos from the ocean cliff nearby. Riding our bikes to Santa Cruz areas and through parks, going out to Happy Valley and also Capitola was pure joy. The wood burning stove and heaters kept us very warm and comfortable during December and January. It was a real treat for me to be there again, the town of my childhood and enjoy the beauty where your cottage is at a very fair rate. Let us know if we can contact you for your super hospitality of sending us what we accidentally left and compensate you. You really are the best kind of owner to rent from and I hope we can arrange to come back soon!
Coziest sanctuary for Ocean lovers needing an escape
We first experienced this rental in 2015 and have come back every year since. We adore everything about the cottage.
very cute cottage, perfect for a weekend get away!
Great little cottage in amazing location.
Perfect for small families or two couples! Owner was extremely accommodating. Thanks for a great weekend!
Quiet, relaxing authentic beach bungalow a short walk to 2 beaches
The place was well kept and clean. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and both beaches. A bonus, we were able to watch a pod of whales feed for about 2 hours one evening.
Everything was easy to understand in the instructions and the place was as advertised. The bed was a bit firm but in good order. We would love to stay here again.
Santa Cruz is known for surfing and its historic Beach-Boardwalk, and there is so much more to do here! Within a half hour drive, visit the redwoods, ride the Roaring Camp train through the mountains, go wine tasting, shop in Capitola or at Santa Cruz's unique downtown area, visit the old Spanish mission, eat at unique restaurants, or take a whale watching trip from the Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf. Plan a day trip to Carmel and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, 'The City' -- San Francisco -- is two hours north along the coast or through Silicon Valley and the SF bay area. Enjoy exploring!
