Where you’ll be

Santa Cruz, California, United States

We love the neighborhood, which is in the choice Westside area of Santa Cruz between the Lighthouse and Natural Bridges beach. Unlike the noisy and congested Boardwalk area, this is very quiet. The cottage is close enough to the ocean that you can often smell the salt air. Very private location, set back from the road. SEE COMMENTS UNDER "EXTRA DETAILS."

I am a "sporty" retiree who loves tennis, hiking, dance, camping, travel and theater.

I adore my cottage in Santa Cruz, where I can inhale the fresh salt air from the Pacific ocean!

During your stay

I don't live full time in Santa Cruz (although I escape to the cottage whenever I can) Much as I would like to be there to greet you, I rely on communicating by phone and email. I am easily reachable by cell or
home phone, and welcome any questions you may have.
I have a dear friend (and contractor) who is very familiar with the property and is available to help with any unexpected issues.
Several weeks before guests arrive I send out a 2 page "info" sheet with details about keys, parking, phone #s (including that of my "helper" friend) location of stuff in the cottage, and some notes on a few places that I think you would enjoy.
