Lori's place was great! My kids adored the chickens in the shared yard ;). Lori even left us some fresh eggs upon our arrival. The full kitchen was extremely helpful as we were able to prepare meals instead of having to eat out every meal. Location is just 10 min drive to the beach and a short drive to the forest. We would definitely stay here again.

We had a lovely stay at Lori's. There was more than enough room for 3 adults and a toddler. Nice patio area to relax in after a day's adventuring. Our daughter loved the chickens too!

Lori & Gian's place was wonderful. Great location - easy access to downtown and close to Hwy 1. Plenty of space for the price. A full kitchen so we could prepare our own meals. Hayden (their 2 1/2 year-old) is a delight. Her occasional presence in the yard brightened our visit. We plan to return again next August!

This is a really good spot for smaller families, couples or a small group - located in a secluded part of SC, but in easy walking distance of shops (5-10min) and even the beaches (15-20min) and city centre (25min). Hosts were extremely helpful with local knowledge, and also had a good eye for a kid-friendly stay; plus excellent communications via Air Bnb app or SMS. Note on facilities - there is one bathroom with shower, en-suite to the main guest room only - ok for us on this stay, maybe a check for others. Kitchen well-equipped, and plenty of storage throughout the space. Highly recommended for anyone looking to explore Santa Cruz and surrounding areas.

Lori's guest house was absolutely wonderful. We didn't get to spend any time with the family, but Lori was so friendly and communicative over email, and we had everything we needed in the house when we checked in, even though our booking was on short notice. Thanks so much!

Wonderful extension home that was so quiet and very close to every attraction in Santa Cruz. We loved the kitchen area and back patio- the chickens were my favorite part!

Hi! My name is Lori and I host this guesthouse along with my husband, Gian, and our 2-year-old daughter. I am a music teacher and singer, and my husband is a real estate appraiser. We both work from home and love to take care of our vegetable garden and chickens! Besides singing, I love cooking, baking, hiking, and going to the beach. Gian is an excellent surfer and mountain biker. We are happy to give you ideas of places to visit while you are visiting the area!
