Amazing Airbnb accommodation. Only stayed for a night but what an amazing experience the hosts made it out to be. We stayed with our 2year old daughter and we were made to feel so welcome and comfortable. Would highly recommend to anyone. Location was also a big bonus.

Chris and Melissa were awesome. We were fortunate to meet them when we first got there. They are so full of life and make you feel very welcome. Great location, very clean, relaxing....just made us feel at home. We will definitely be back when we come to Santa Cruz again. Two thumbs up!!

Chris and Melissa are great hosts - very responsive. The unit is full-featured and spacious. While it is not "close" to the beach it is very accessible and ideal for me as I was visiting family in the area. I expect to stay there again!

We really enjoyed our stay at Chris and Melissa's place. My communication was with Chris. He extends a very friendly and welcoming energy right from the start and his responses to my inquiries were always expedient with a kind and caring undertone. The private entry, welcome note, small bottle of wine, pillow mints, private bathroom, the firm, yet comfy soft bed, extra soft linens, Keurig coffee maker and coffee, raw sugar, fair trade organic cocoa, filtered water, and sweet decorative touches, and..... the wonderfully affordable rates, were all so very much appreciated. If we are ever in need of a place to stay in the area again, we would absolutely love to stay there once again. :-)

If you’re looking for a clean quiet beautifully spacious place in SANTA Cruz, this is it! Melissa and Chris and their family are warm and wonderful and they’ve spared no details for your comfort in their adorable space- Internet, TV, movies, coffee maker, awesome shower and the most comfortable bed! I highly recommend it, and the location is easy to get to as well.

Interaction with guests

I work from home, so I'm pretty flexible with being able to greet you and get you set up.

About Chris And Melissa

We are a two-teacher household doing our best to live in the moment. We are budget travelers who love to meet new people while exposing our kids to as much of the world as we can.
If you stay at our place, you can totally have your own space without us bugging you one bit, or you can join us for a meal or a beer. If you have kids, then our kids (7 and 4) would love to share their space, toys, and games with them. We also have two guest passes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium that you are welcome to use, free of charge.
We are happy to be a part of this community where we can meet some amazing people.
