Loved staying at Christine's cottage. Really close to the freeway which made getting to Santa Cruz super easy and convent. The unit itself was really clean and organized. Would definitely stay again if we're ever back down in Cali.

We enjoyed our stay in this comfortable studio at the back of Christine's home. The apartment was clean, well stocked and everything was easy to find. We appreciated the teas and coffee on hand. She also left a very warm welcoming note!

Christine's place was perfect for our 9 day stay in Santa Cruz. I was doing training at Land of Medicine Buddha and my husband and 5 month old daughter were along for the trip. Christine was VERY accommodating. The place is great for the price and it was very convenient to Whole Foods, which we liked. I would love to see a bathroom remodel though....and the pillows on the bed were super thin (random, but they really were). I would certainly stay again and recommend to anyone needing a cozy place to crash with an adequate kitchen. Very grateful for our time in that little studio apartment.

I was in Capitola for a weekend get-away. I stayed at Christine's place. The place was wonderful! Extremely clean and quiet. The bed was very comfortable. The location was perfect, close to everything... I definitely would stay here again.

The place is very charming and in a good location. It is just what I expected or a beach town. Christine was a great communicator and her place was very organized. I would stay again.
