What guests are saying:

“Great cottage within walking distance of nearby beaches (1 mile). Cute inside and outside The house amenities met our needs for the weekend. Kids loved the frozen breakfast stuff. Lots of places to get food right around the corner. Appreciated the recommendations but now we need to know about restaurants that have outdoor seating!”

What guests are saying:

“Kendall is an amazing host. She was extremely clean and adhered to all social distancing guidelines. We were able to check in a bit earlier and were appreciative of the flexibility. Check in was really easy. Communication was always constant and the hosts were easily available whenever contacted. The place was extremely clean and even had things we didn't expect like Tea, Coffee, some Italian Soda, and beach towel's. The space is extremely spacious and feels extremely 'homey'. The pictures don't do this place justice. There are 2 balconies which are a nice area to hang out on during the day or the sunset. Proximity to the beach and grocery stores were nice too. The TV, Board Games and more were great. If we come back to Santa Cruz we'll be sure to try and stay here again!”

Harbor Studio Near Beach Boardwalk

What our guests say is that they like a cottage that is not in the host's backyard. Located on a seldom used alley 2 blocks from the beach, harbor, and restaurants. The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is a walk of about 1 1/2 miles or 2 miles driving. Guests appreciate that the cottage is only used by humans. Please have all guests read the listing description so all are informed.

What guests are saying:

“Kirk’s cottage was such a pleasure to stay at! From the location, the cleanliness, and the hospitality from the host, everything was great. It’s literally two blocks from the beach and a beautiful harbor, and in the cutest neighborhood! It has all the amenities you need and could want. I would definitely stay here again, just not on a Monday night because of the many garbage men coming starting at 5am and ending around 8:30am on Tuesday morning. It is in an alley way so noise echos off the buildings and it was very loud so no sleeping in! The curtains are very sheer as well, so as sun as the sun came up there was no sleeping either. However, even with those small things we had the best time and enjoyed the sunrise that morning. 🤗☀️”
