Michelle's place is wonderful. it is very comfortable, no AC but it didn't get too hot anyways. the location is nice, and is pretty close to downtown. She has a list of recommended food places etc, and that was helpful. The aquarium passes are awesome and really made this a great deal. The place has just about everything you need for a week's stay. The only problem was the wifi. She does provide a small device that has a hotspot that helps, but only two devices can be connected and we couldn't really watch things on netflix because it was still slow. She provides DVDs for a bunch of movies though, which makes up for it. I would definitely stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay here! The cottage was cozy and just the right size for two people. The location was also ideal for quick travel to beaches, downtown, and UCSC. Michelle was kind enough to leave us with a state beach pass and was quick to respond to all of my questions. The kitchen was fully equipped and ready to use, and there was even complimentary tea in the cupboard. Really clean and wonderful!

The cottage is super cute with decorations. We didn't get a chance to meet Michelle but the whole process was smooth. We were able to use her passes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which was a great perk. Thanks for having us!

Our stay at Michelle's airbnb in Santa Cruz was very nice. We liked how the house was tucked away but also very centrally located. Michelle was a thoughtful host and even came and brought us a fan late at night because it was extra hot in Santa Cruz that day. Overall, I would recommend her place to anyone. Thank you, Michelle!

This was our second stay at Michelle's cottage. We will be back again. Cottage is clean, cute and centrally-located for touring Santa Cruz. You are on the same property as the main house but it feels private because there is a low hedge between the two. Cottage is stocked with everything you need for simple cooking. There are beach towels, toiletries, hair dryer, a fan and a heater. Michelle has two friendly dogs who came by to say hi. We used both the state parks pass and the Monterey Bay aquarium passes. These are a huge added value for our family. Loved taking my 3 year old to the Aquarium for free! Thank you Michelle!

Individual owner who rents out their lovely cottage occassionally. My family and I love to travel. If I had to list my favorite things... travel would be 1 through 3 and the last 2 would be the beach and being on the water. :) This excludes the usual family, dog, love, peace answers.
