Relaxing with Perfect Amenities

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect cabin for relaxing and enjoying the beach and west side amenities! Our dog enjoyed walking with us to the breweries and wine tasting. Great for morning walks along the beach too!

Extreemly Clean And Well Furnished, Beautiful And Interesting Cabin

  • 5 of 5

As all the other reviews state, it is a very cute cabin. Although the pictures are great, and accurate, it would be better if there were more! Even the doors, and close-ups of the hardwood floor, in fact....even photos the wood CEILING would be great. For now, you will just have to trust me that you will not be dissapointed in this cabin. As far as the host: Deb. She couldn't be better. I wasn't aware until the second day, that I found that the flower arrangments in the bathroom and dining room table were real flowers! Fresh, artistically arranged much nicer than any florist would do. Apparently cut from the property. The one on the table was next to a welcoming bottle of wine! There were towels provided not only for the inside of the house, but there were ones outside adjacent to the exterior shower, as well. There is a doggie door fit for a small dog of about 24 lbs or less. Even dog water and food bowls are provided. An outside-dog bed is provided. (Not one hair of a previous dog visitor could be found inside the the place is clean.) Matches for the fire pit, even an emergency flashlight, are provided, if needed. There was enough wood to have a fire in either of the two fire pits: One in the backyard, and one in the front yard.

Chairs to sit on both in the backyard and in the front yard. There were two bicycles to use.

One thing that I've experienced so many times in OTHER vacation rentals.... is that the pots and pans, and cooking utensils ...quantiy and selections are extreemly limited. Not at this cabin: You truly DO have anything you need here! Next time, I won't bring anything at all except for clothes and food, if I plan on cooking, and a beach towel. That will make packing so much easier, and make the overall trip more enjoyable due to less packing/unpacking.

Sleeping logistics: This is a one bedroom, one bath cabin with a separate main area that includes living, eating, cooking, and sleeping. The bathroom is located in the middle of a short hallway. It is situated such that, a person from either couple could get up and go to the bathroom without viewing the other couple. So there is privacy to use the bathroom, even though there is not a master bathroom.

Try it... you'll like it!

The cabin was great. Views from the living room of the ocean were fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

The backyard BBQ worked great for our family gathering to celebrate my son's graduation from UC Santa Cruz.

We loved all the decorations and art work. I especially liked all the succulents tucked around the garden and house

The outdoor shower was great for showering off after trips to the beach.

The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful spot with us for Eric's graduation. A fun time was made more memorable by having such a wonderful place to gather.

Beautiful & homey!

  • 5 of 5

This place was really great. Clean and welcoming and the owner is apparently a potter so the collection of unique handmade plates and tableware available was super cool. This cabin was across a small street from the beach which made for a perfect Memorial Day weekend. The owner offered us two extra nights at half price but unfortunately our schedules wouldn't allow us to take advantage of the generous opportunity. Would definitely stay here again. The walkable Kelly French Bakery was a highlight, and Santa Cruz on Memorial Day cannot be beat. Surf competitions, volleyball competitions - it was an awesome place to be.There were bikes in the garage and a longboard for guests to use and the flower garden surrounding the cabin is gorgeous. A++

cute house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights here. It's a great location- we spent a lot of time walking along the beach, and the views are beautiful! The house is in good condition, and very cute.

Cozy, artsy cabin on the ocean bluffs, one of a kind!

  • 5 of 5

Deb's cabin was ideal for us. The location 1/2 way between Steamers Lane/the lighthouse and Natural Bridges Park/beach meant a beautiful walk or bike ride along ocean cliffs to awesome destinations. A little further and you're at the boardwalk and downtown Santa Cruz..We had everything we needed at the cabin and then some and Deb was very accommodating. This is a unique, awesome rental!!
