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!

The space

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.

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
Melanie and Omar were great host. We had a cancellation on our previous air bnb location and Melanie and Omar were able to accommodate and extend our stay in Santa Cruz. Room was perfect and it was nice to have a private bathroom. Melanie and Omar provided great places to eat and visit while in Santa Cruz. Location is very central to downtown, minutes away from the boardwalk and close to mystery spot. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting be central to everything.

Great location! The bedroom was clean and very comfortable, and it was great that a mini fridge was provided. We were able to leave our bikes in their secure garage when we weren't using them. Melanie and Omar were very accommodating and communicated well. Great place and great value!

The bikes they have for you to borrow made it so easy for us to adventure around without paying for endless Uber rides!

Very nice hosts. Room was comfortable and clean, with basic amenities. We enjoyed the neighborhood, with good street parking and easy walk to the ocean as well as some nice cafe's and restaurants nearby, and easy driving distance to some nice hikes in the Santa Cruz mountains. Would definitely recommend for those that like the urban feel but close to nature at the same time.

I booked this airbnb for my dad who was coming from France and wanted a 2 days getaway in Santa Cruz, he actually loved the bikes and had a great stay.

We were in Santa Cruz for a reunion and graduation celebration so we didn't really get to meet our hosts and really only slept there. However, the location of their hose is great. There is a zip car located right across the street which is convenient. Accommodations are very comfortable. Just what we needed!

Melanie And Omar User ProfileMelanie And Omar is a superhost.

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. :)
