Overview

Beach Hill Studio Rental Photos and Description

136 Younger Way is located atop Santa Cruz's Beach Hill, an easy downhill stroll to the Pacific Ocean, Main Beach volleyball courts, the historic Santa Cruz Wharf and the famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Surfers and boogie boarders are just minutes away from Cowell’s (beginner waves) and Steamer Lane (expert waves). Explore downtown shops, restaurants and coffee shops which are easily accessible by a 10 minute walk. There are endless other recreational options in Santa Cruz County including mountain biking, hiking, sailing, kayaking and scenic trains through redwood forests.

The guest cottage is a completely renovated (2012) studio with one bath and kitchenette, located on the same property as a Craftsman style home. High ceilings allow for an open feel within the studio cottage. Enjoy the small deck area outside and shared BBQ with the main house on the property.

This cottage is a relaxing getaway and perfect retreat. The property lies on a quiet one way residential street occupied almost solely by year round residents.

If you need more space, you can also view the VRBO listing for the main home - VRBO listing #413289. We live in the main house as our primary residence, but rent it during the summer months, holidays, and some weekends.

About Jodi Mulder

We moved to Santa Cruz in July 2011 from Chicago. It's been quite a culture shift; but we love it, we love the relaxed and friendly culture of Santa Cruz, we really think there's no place like it and we have traveled all over the world. We've been married 16 years and love sharing new experiences We've traveled to 41 countries together and have a passion for social justice issues; both globally and locally. Chad is currently pursuing a socially minded start up company focused on job creation in Rwanda and Jodi works as a psychotherapist at UCSC's Counseling & Psychological Services. Our boys love living in Santa Cruz; playing at the beach, soccer at Depot Park, or riding their scooters at the Bike Park.

Jodi Mulder purchased this studio in 2011

Why Jodi Mulder chose Santa Cruz

We took a 12 week sabbatical in 2009; volunteering for a fair trade retailer who was located in Santa Cruz. We spent 6 weeks in Santa Cruz and 6 weeks in East Africa. After returning home to Chicago, we decided to pursue a different journey in life, sold our home in and in time decided we wanted Santa Cruz to be our new home. We love the relaxed neighborhood feel up on Beach Hill, it's so close to all the action, but being on a one way street keeps it quiet and relaxed!

We decided to down size when we moved to Santa Cruz, and we loved the Craftsman architecture of this home and the outdoor spaces. We converted the single stall garage into a cottage unit by adding a small addition on the side. We wanted a place for grandparents and friends from the midwest to stay when they came to visit. All of our guests have loved the little cottage.

What makes this studio unique

Relaxation and fun are the two things we love about living at 136 Younger Way. We can stroll down to the beach for 30 minutes, hop on our bikes for some boogie boarding fun, or relax at home listening to the summer beach concerts.

This little studio cottage is small, but has everything you need for a comfortable stay!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I drove from Utah for a much needed getaway. We absolutely loved this cottage! It was perfect for 2 and had everything you need. We were only a couple blocks from the beach and close to many restaurants so it was a prime location. It had so much more character than a hotel! We did not get to meet Chad or Jodi but they left a welcome book with detailed instructions on everything we needed. It was a great vacation spot and we would love to return! Thank you for sharing your great cottage Chad and Jodi!

Wonderful spot close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage doesn't disappoint! It was exactly as described, within walking distance to the beach,boardwalk and downtown. The cottage is beautifully decorated, clean and simple. We especially loved how quite and relaxing it was, our favorite part was no TV!!

We will definitely return for future visits!

Studio Guest Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Very nice, small (as advertised) guest cottage. No TV which would have been nice to have if desired.

Quick walk to pier, boardwalk, restaurants.

Pefect for a short stay!

  • 5 of 5

It is a smaller space. But perfect for what we needed it for. To sleep! The place was clean and the neighborhood was quiet. Very close to everything in Santa Cruz. We had our baby with us and were still able to walk everywhere for the most part all of which was within a 5 minute walk. Highly recommend!

Such a sweet little cottage, PERFECTLY located! We loved being a quick walk to the beach, but still a quiet cottage set just enough away to be perfect. Super comfy bed... we'd love to return!

Location Location Location!

  • 5 of 5

Not only is this studio cottage adorably renovated (used to be a garage), it's in a perfect location in Santa Cruz! The cottage is located a few blocks from the beach, Boardwalk and Wharf. We walked all over when we were there, which was perfect for us. The cottage was a bit smaller than I thought it would be but we managed to fit just fine (two adults and two babies).
