Where you’ll be

Santa Cruz, California, United States

Our neighborhood is filled with some of the oldest Victorian’s in the City, including ours. This property was established in 1888. Your backyard guesthouse was built in 2006.

Our location to downtown makes entertainment and enjoying Santa Cruz so easy - within 10 minutes you have access to restaurants, shops, street performances, movie theaters, the Santa Cruz Museum of Modern Art, an organic grocery store, sauna and hot tub house, music venues and more.

Even closer to home, walk a few blocks to eat at Emily’s Bakery, Kopal oaxacan cuisine, Sabieng Thai, or Taqueria Vallarta. We are also only a few blocks from an organic grocery and health store, The Food Bin.

For the beach visits, we are 1 mile from the boardwalk and west cliff beaches and there are multiple bike paths to get you to the beach from our location. It is a 20 minute walk to the Boardwalk and 20-25 minute walk to Lighthouse Beach.

Our street is near the local high school and has teenagers hanging out on the sidewalks between classes and before/after school during the school year.

We live here on property but will not interfere with your stay. Your guesthouse is completely detached from our main house and has a separate entrance. We will respect your privacy, but of course, are always welcome for questions.
