    About this property

    Cottage Studio With Private Entrance, Midway Between Santa Cruz And Monterey

    Adults-only apartments in Freedom
    This newly remodeled studio is spacious, light, clean and super comfortable, with original artwork by local artists displayed throughout. The California king bed, duvet, sheets and pillows all brand new. There is a kitchen area which includes electric kettle, toaster, teas and coffee and all the amenities you need to make breakfast or light meals. A gas barbecue is also provided outside. The newly renovated bathroom consists of shower, toilet and sink. Steps from the french doors is a delightful patio with teak table and chairs, and umbrella for shade. A separate gazebo/sitting room with comfy couch and chairs for lounging and relaxing with a book and a glass of wine is only steps away. Lights can be turned on for night time. There is also a gas barbecue to cook your alfresco dinners. If you're thinking of a beach picnic I provide a cooler and Turkish towels. All this overlooks a beautiful sunny summer garden filled with flowers and vegetables. A very happy spot for humming birds, bees and butterflies. You are always welcome to help yourself to any of the garden bounty whilst you are staying.
