We stayed here as an usually large group and Melody was incredibly helpful in accommodating us. She was very friendly, responsive, and clear. The property was nice, quiet, and walking distance from the beach. It was a great place for our retreat. Thanks, Melody!

Very pretty, beach-y house on a quiet cul-de-sac within easy walking distance of the beach. The front yard has two hammocks and a little water fountain, all of which my daughter adored; back yard has a grill and a fire pit which were perfect for evenings. The beach is perfect: not at all crowded, lovely, full of friendly people. Bedrooms were clean and comfortable with plenty of space to unpack clothing (I hate it when I can't unpack my suitcase!). Very laid back vibe. We had a great time.

Aloha, My name is Melody. I am a massage therapist in Santa Cruz County, Ca. I love what I do and where I live. I love traveling and meeting new people wherever I go. I make friends easy and I consider myself low maintenance. I love simple, safe and fun. I enjoy all kinds of boating, camping, general outdoor fun activities. I appreciate cultural events and love to dance to all kinds of music. Dancing makes me feel alive and joyful. I try to live a joyful positive life and like to create that for others. I have Australian/Lab mix female dog that is my best buddy. She makes my world a better place. I have a teenage son that I am proud of and enjoy watching him move through life with enthusiasm, motivation and a sense of adventure. I am grateful for Airbnb for all the variety and options they provide and enjoy being a guest and a host. I hope to meet lots of wonderful people on this Airbnb journey. Hope to see you out in the world or at My little Retreat.
