Very nicely decorated and calm place. The pictures alone can't tell how cozy this house actually is, especially the garden is beautiful! We had a great time.

Great cute and cozy place! It was quiet, inviting, and perfect for our getaway in Santa Cruz. Rich and Steve were very accommodating and responsive. They also left treats for us from a nearby bakery when we arrived!

This is a sweet neighborhood and my interactions with Rich were very welcoming. One of the things I liked is that the space allows two people to have quiet time without being on top of each other. (I am traveling with my 18-year old ; - ). The bed and couch are both comfortable.

The listing description was accurate. Rich was very good about promptly responding to questions and providing information. The neighborhood was good; it was an easy walk to the ocean.
