    Santa Cruz, Near Beaches, Private, Quiet & Sweet!

    Sweet and charming space for one or two, in the heart of Live Oak, Santa Cruz. Our home is close to beaches and upper harbor (1.3 miles) and 10 minutes by car to SC Beach Boardwalk and Capitola by the Sea. Comfy double-sized vintage iron bed, a small separate bathroom and a small but charming outdoor area! This is a totally self-contained space with a private entrance!

    What guests are saying:

    “This little casita is a jewel. The space is small but perfect for one person. I stayed a week this time for a solo writing retreat and the privacy and quiet were just what I needed to work. I love the old Wedgewood stove and could cook all of my meals with food I brought myself. That plus the discount for the week’s booking made it possible to give myself the gift of solitude, with the ocean nearby for evening walks at the end of the working day. Many thanks to Maria and Geoff for keeping this tiny space in good working order, clean and bright!”

    What guests are saying:

    “We are so happy with our choice to stay at April’s place over a hotel. The house was immaculate, clean, and the beds were very comfortable! You can’t beat the location...just a few miles from the wharf and Boardwalk, and within walking distance to some excellent restaurants. Try Burger. and Donnelly’s chocolates if you stay here and are looking for a great place to eat or a sweet treat. We had a wonderful time and will definitely stay at April’s the next time we are in town.”
