Hi! We love offering our place and sharing beautiful Santa Cruz with visitors! Our cottage is the perfect place for a couple. Inside you will find it light, bright and cozy. We are situated 1 block from the beach, in Santa Cruz's picturesque Seabright neighborhood, a favorite. Cottage is within walking distance to cafés and wonderful restaurants, boardwalk, beach and harbor. Our neighborhood is quiet and safe. You will love this location.
We've had many guests in the past who have loved the cottage not only because of the the location, but also because of it's unique feel. The building is all made using green building materials. We designed the building and interior ourselves and although small, it feels spacious and practical for it's size. Every square inch was considered. PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS A STEEP ( but very solid and strong)LADDER/STAIRS TO THE LOFT BEDROOM- see pictures.
On the patio, feel free to use BBQ and picnic table.
Boogie board, Beach chairs and beach towels available upon request.
Guest access is via the front driveway gate, follow the patio and cottage main entrance is to the right of building along gravel pathway. We leave it unbolted when guests are arriving. We ask that you please bolt it when you come in at night. THANK YOU!
PLEASE NOTE: we have a dog on the property. He is kept in the main house OR fenced away in the garden. He is a very friendly big puppy who will mostly likely bark when anyone comes through the front gate. He will in no way have access to you (unless you ask us that you want to pet him!), BUT you will hear him when you walk through gate - he's a good guard dog! His name is INKA. If we are away on a trip, you won't here him! There is also a kitty on the property ("BELLA") He mostly keep to himself but on occasion takes a liking to people and will try to join you in the cottage. Please don't let him in the cottage.
We are available to help answer any questions when needed. We want to also respect your privacy while you are here. Please do not hesitate to contact us with questions - we will limit checking in with you, so as not to disturb. Please try to contact us via phone, text or Airbnb.
Our main house is on the same property as cottage. Please note the cottage has a private entrance. The patio is reserved for guests during their stay, however you may occasionally see a gardener come through, or a child forgetting they are supposed to stay in garden! Please feel free to use BBQ and picnic table for dining al fresco!

Hello, I was born in California, however raised in England and Peru, and have been back on the California coast for over 16 years now, living by the beach with my husband Reggie (California native!), and 2 children. I am an artist, designer, tea maker, herbalist, business owner, traveler and proud mum of a teen boy and seven year old girl. My husband has been in the sustainable agriculture business for 30years and runs a non-profit/finance institution that supports small farmers and keeps our local food systems alive!...i.e. famers markets! We love listening and playing music, and dancing! We can't live without running and surfing, fabulous food, and traveling with our children. Our favorite travel destinations are South America and Europe.
