About this listing
Clean, comfy, private suite 5 blocks from the ocean, 1 block from the popular Swift St. courtyard, a 5-minute drive to UCSC, and a 10-minute bike ride from the boardwalk, wharf, and downtown!
You enter and exit through our living room, but there is a separate door to your suite, making it feel like its own, private unit. ***Please note that we have a new baby and greatly value our space. This listing is for your private bedroom and bathroom only, not our kitchen or common space.***
The room features a new queen sized bed, flat-screen TV with 71 cable channels, mini fridge and freezer, microwave, tea kettle, coffee maker, water filter, dinette set, and cozy loveseat. We provide dishes, bowls, silverware, glasses, coffee, and tea. If you require the use of a stove, oven, or further kitchen access, perhaps another, more comprehensive listing on air bnb would be a better fit. Thank you for understanding.
In addition, your private bathroom has a bathtub and shower, and we provide clean towels and organic bath products.
The best part about your home away from home here is our location! Read below in "the neighborhood" to read about the nearby ocean and all of the local amenities.
Interaction with guests
With a new baby, our lives are full, although are more than happy to answer any questions or do anything we can to make your stay more comfortable.
Other things to note
Please note that we need to collect the 11% occupancy tax upon your arrival. We will provide an envelope in your room for you to leave cash or check.
Please no smokers, even if you smoke outside. I'm sensitive to smells, even when they linger on clothing. For the same reason, also no pets.
Check in is after 4pm. Check out is before 11am. If you need early check-in or late check-out just let us know in your request and we will accommodate if we can.
As a way to respect both of our privacy, we have designed your room with everything you need. Therefore, we ask that you enjoy the use of your private suite and our backyard, and only use our common indoor spaces to walk through when necessary.
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund. Cancel within 5 days of your trip and the first night is non-refundable, but 50% of the cost for the remaining nights will be refunded.

We love our cozy home on the west side of Santa Cruz. Omar is a high school social studies teacher and communication workshop instructor, and Melanie owns a women's empowerment business called Professional Wild Woman, where she helps women awaken to their own, wild potential through private coaching, retreats, small groups, and workshops.
We enjoy hiking, biking, beach volleyball, traveling, and game nights and bbq's with friends. But most of all we enjoy our new baby! Born in September of 2016. :)
