We loved the space. The garden was nice, the house cozy, and the location was wonderful. We enjoyed relaxing in the house when we weren't out doing things- we lazed around in the mornings, and enjoyed quiet time before dinner, in really comfy surroundings. This is the kind of place that makes AirBnB a wonderful experience.

A great spot! Meg was there to greet us and show us around. The Buttery bakery is a must!

Gorgeous hidden gem in a fabulous location. Host was very organized and informative and the place was quite spacious and had a lovely garden and bohemian vibe. Would stay here again!

The house is cozy and clean, close to everything - grocery, restaurant, beach etc. The host has offered everything we needed. The bathroom countertop and shower room is a little bit too small though.

My stay here was perfect, as always. Saying so just makes it harder for me to get the place the next time I need it.... HA!

My parents and I had a great stay at Meg's place! You enter her place through the side of the yard, walking through a full, beautiful garden to get to your own private patio. The place itself is cozy, well decorated, and very comfortable. My parents and I slept very well with no outside noise. They took the bed and I slept on the very comfortable couch, with many extra blankets and pillows that Meg provided. There is fantastic Mexican food and a small bakery within a walking distance, and the beach is just a 5 minute drive away! I definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Santa Cruz.
