This is just a nice little place tucked away in Santa Cruz. Reminds me of an ocean villa, just not on the ocean. A very nice owner of the facility and I will return there again. Pricing at peak season is very reasonable. Walkable to shopping and definitely served it's purpose. No complaints.

Nice for the price! Really nice family run business. The studio was well worth the extra few $ for nearly double the space and a fridge. In my rush to book, I didn’t see the kitchen is bare - no plates, silverware, pans, nothing - but no big deal!

Good location
Great location. Huge room/ suite with full kitchen. We used the refrigerator, but didn’t cook. If you want to cook, bring everything you need. Not stocked with anything, pap towels, utensils, pans, etc. Bed a little hard, but clean. Would stay there again.
