Ginger was super friendly and the space was great! It was very clean, had a few treats in the fridge, coffee and dining tips as well. Would definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a quite spot in Santa Cruz that's only a few minutes from the beach/boardwalk/downtown. Thanks!

Ginger and Doug were awesome hosts! We were in Santa Cruz for 9 days and when we arrived we had some nice attentions for our arrival. They gave us suggestions for nice food markets, restaurants, breweries... We were stoked! The studio is very cosy and the neighborhood very quiet. The gas stove was awesome at night and the kitchen, even tough small, was very efficient. Plus we had a BBQ outside! Wi-Fi, internet TV, washer and dryer... The only thing we needed more was more days in Santa Cruz! We had and unforgettable time at Ginger and Doug's and would recommend it to everyone. Thanks again you two :) See you maybe in Canada around a Poutine! Xxx

We had a wonderful three night stay at the garden cottage! Ginger and Doug knew it was our honeymoon and spoiled us with sparkling wine and treats upon our arrival. The cottage was clean and nicely decorated. Super soft bed and a fun cowboy shower. They were helpful with recommendations and made arrival and departure super easy. Would definitely stay with them again.

This was the first time I've used airBnB, but Ginger's studio cottage came highly recommended by a colleague, and I was not disappointed. The cottage was extremely cozy, clean and comfortable, and I will definitely be staying there again next time I'm in Santa Cruz.

Ginger is an amazing host! She made us feel so welcomed when we arrived. She greeted us with a smile and had great tips and recommendations to do there during our stay. She had snacks and refreshments waiting for us in the cottage when we arrived. The cottage is adorable and has everything you need. It was so nice to be able to grab the cooler and a beach chair and go to the local beaches. We will definitely be back for a stay!

We had a wonderful stay at Ginger's house this past weekend while visiting my brother at UCSC. The apartment is exactly as pictured - perfect for two people. Very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Ginger was a wonderful and gracious host. She made check in and checkout so easy and seamless, was easy to communicate with, and left behind some snacks and coffee that definitely came in handy. I would definitely stay here again in my return trips to the Santa Cruz area! Can't recommend enough.

Ginger's place is an absolutely adorable space for a trip to Santa Cruz! The cottage is welcoming, clean and with easy access to neighborhood restaurants. Getting to other parts of Santa Cruz was easy too with the freeway entrance just a few blocks from the cottage. From check-in to check-out and everything in between - our stay at Ginger's cottage was easy and enjoyable! I highly recommend it!
