Diego's home is a lovely place in the East of Santa Cruz. It is perfect for exploring the area and is walking distance to a beautiful quiet beach. Diego is a wonderful friendly host and his plentiful knowledge of the area made our short visit a tremendous experience.

Diego was the most welcoming, friendly and laid back host and his place was faultless! The apartment was super clean and filled with personality. We arrived late which was not a problem and Diego was instantly offering us tips on what to do and making sure we had eaten etc. Everything was easy walking distance which was perfect for us as we don't have a car (the beach is just 2 minutes away). Also we felt extremely safe in the neighbourhood, even at night with few street lights. All in all loved Santa Cruz and would definitely stay here again if I got the chance!

Our room was spacious and welcoming. Bathroom a bit small, but you don't live in the bathroom, so this was not a problem for us. There was a little noise in the courtyard most nights, but never lasting long enough to keep us awake. It was all part of the scene, which was entertaining, maybe even comforting, and oh-so-Santa Cruz. We were very comfortable in this room, and Diego is a delightful host. No regrets, that's for sure.

Diego was a wonderful host. He was most pleasant and welcoming as well as informative. The room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable. We only wish we had more time for a longer stay!

Diego gives very comprehensive directions beforehand. Read them all! We did not, and ended up with cold showers, which he pointed out we should have already known about. The room is basic, but tidy, as is the attached bathroom. I feel the room is a bit overpriced.

Diego was a great host and I would strongly recommend his place. He made check in super easy, was a great host, recommending bars/restaurants and was also quick to respond on any other questions I might had. The location is super nice, close to the beach, and perfect for me going running in the am. For drinks at night I took an Uber as most bars & downtown were not walking distance, but Uber & cabs were cheap and quickly accessible, so not a problem at all. I enjoyed the quite area at his place. Def would go back to this place.

My name is Diego. I am originally from Montevideo, Uruguay and I have been living in Santa Cruz for the past 15 years. Since i was a kid i have been painting, drawing, surfing and skateboarding and almost my entire life had evolve from those earlier passions. Professionally I work as a graphic designer. I am also into photography, illustration, film making and music experimentation. I love to travel and collect things. I also love finding a good deal in a garage sale or thrift store , do a little surfing, cruise around in the bike or skateboard, watch a good movie or documentary, maybe cook a meal with friends, play board games and just live a simple and creative life. I hope this opportunity will bring a lot of new friendly faces and good vibes into my home which i am looking forward to share it with you.
