The Cottage is a relaxing and private retreat. Just a short walk to West Cliff drive, Cowell's, Steamer Lane, downtown Santa Cruz, The Boardwalk, The Santa Cruz Wharf, Pogonip (the redwoods!) and Neary Lagoon. You'll love the Cottage because of the chill atmosphere, modern kitchen, elegant bathroom, queen size bed and the relaxing and sunny private backyard. There is no Internet/WiFi on the property.

Great spot to enjoy Santa Cruz. Safe neighborhood, nice walk or quick ride to downtown, comfy quarters for 1 or 2 people. Driveway parking was very helpful!

Truly a hidden Gem. Peace and quiet within a short walk to anything in Santa Cruz. Erik has tons a great info about the surf around the area. The interior is efficiently and extremely thoughtfully designed. High end appliances and cookware. It was a great pleasure to stay here.

Excellent location on quiet street. We walked downtown and loved going down the historic streets such as Maple and Lincoln to get to Pacific Ave and the eateries/museum/etc.

This is a very pretty and centrally located cottage with an easy walk to downtown and the Boardwalk, and it's a great place to sleep (super comfortable bed).
