The Sunset room is private room with a short walk to the bathroom and kitchen, which are shared. Bring your own food if you plan to cook. This room is part of what was once the Barn, giving it a rustic feel.

The Sunset room looks out into the canyon, where, of course the sun sets. You can often see deer and other wildlife in the meadow and hear owls at night. It is situated on the west side of the small dance studio. The cost of the Sunset room is $114/night. Wood heat stove (wood supplied). Adjustable bed.

Camping is also available. For camping, of course you supply your own linens and towels, but you have use of the kitchen and the bathroom. Free high-speed Wifi works in the kitchen.

Free Wireless Internet, bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. Hiking on property, free drinking water from our well. Small dance studio can be rented for $20/hour.

Interaction with guests

It depends on how busy I am and what they want. Guests are welcome to watch or take my Flamenco classes on Saturday 11-12:30 or Thursday evening 6:30-8PM.

The neighbourhood

We are located in the mountains with views of the ocean and the sunset and the sunrise, but we are only 8 minutes from the freeway. We are 6 minutes, driving slowly, from town.
I love the quiet of being surrounded by nature. I love the views of the ocean and the canyon and the sunset and the incredible sky. I love that we are close to town yet feel secluded. I love the colors and the sounds of animals and birds. I want to share this experience with my guests.
Parking is included.

Getting around

We are 3 miles from public transportation, so we recommend a car or a taxi.

Really enjoyed my stay at this hidden gem. The room was rustic but very clean. The room has an amazing view with a short walk to a view of the ocean. There is a communal kitchen, bathroom and laundry room that were also kept very clean. Marianna was extremely nice and accommodating. The bed was very comfortable and clean. I would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed staying with Marianna, she was a most accommodating and attentive host. We loved hiking in the nearby Henry Cowell Park and exploring the Santa Cruz beaches. Marianna was kind enough to open her dance studio so we could practice yoga! Marianna's place is comfortable, clean, well appointed and she was a wonderful host. Would come back again in future.

We had a very pleasant experience in the sun room on Marianna's property. The views are stunning and the room offers a perfect spot to sit and enjoy. During the afternoon the room gets quite warm and there is no air conditioning so we just went into town during that time, some retractable awnings might be helpful on some of the hotter days. Admittedly we stayed on one of the hottest weekends of the summer! Marianna was very accommodating, and even offered to let us go for a swim in the pool on property. We will be back for sure.

Thank you. I look forward to seeing you again. Next time please mention the heat problem (it was unusually warm) and I will bring in a fan.

Marianna welcomed us, she is super nice. pros: host, wood burning stove, pool, scenic area cons: Main one is the price. I paid $232, it should be at least $50 less, shower water was cold at night (hot in the morning though), oldish furnishing and decor. I recommend it if the host lower the price a little.

Response from Marianna:
Thank you Martin. Some of the price includes what airbnb charges above what I get. Also, I am not sure why the shower water was cold. It is an on-demand system so it never runs out. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Marianna was very easy and accommodating to book with. She greeted us when we drove up the driveway and showed us to our room. The room was rustic but nice and clean. The view from the deck was amazing and we watch the sunset over the mountains both nights we stayed. The only drawback is that there were people camping in tents twenty feet off the deck and we felt we had to stay quit not disturb them. Overall it was a very nice experience.

My partner and I had the most spectacular time at Marianna's. The view from the bedroom was extremely breathtaking and the atmosphere was peaceful. We often had our dinner on the porch while watching the beautiful sunset. Marianna was absolutely welcoming, she made sure that our needs were met. We felt very comfortable staying at her place and loved every moment of it. Thank you so much Marianna! I would definitely recommend this to those looking for a quiet and relaxing place to stay!
