We are a real estate and property management company, helping a few owners with there Vacation Rentals. At this time Heather is your contact person.
The location, views, etc. are exactly what you're hoping for. The amenities are as described and pictured. The place was clean, and the host was accommodating in terms of checking in and out.
My only suggestion would be to photograph the contents of kitchen cabinets upon arrival, because it will be assumed that you broke or took something if their inventory doesn't add up.
I paid an extra $50 for a champagne glass (that we did break), three mugs (that we never saw), and a refrigerator part (that was already broken upon arrival). However, all things considered, we had a great time and it was worth it!
I really enjoyed the quirky charm of this cottage. Totally Santa Cruz! I was very pleased.
Located in a residential area a few minutes walk from the beach and easily walkable distance to Boardwalk and town centre. Ample free parking nearby. Garden private. This place is bigger than it looks and was ample big enough for a family of four. Not having a kitchen sink was slightly inconvenient but not a big issue as the bathroom sink is so large. Wifi was good and TV had loads of channels so good if travelling with teenagers/children. Kitchen very well equipt and beds extremely comfy.
The house was very quaint and cute. Had a cozy feel to it. It was the perfect place for our weekend getaway. The kitchen had all the utensils we needed. The backyard and deck were really cute.
The showers were pretty dirty. There was hair in the drain....
They only equipped us with 2 half rolls of toilet paper... so we ended up having to buy some more.
The instructions for taking out the garbage were a little confusing. still not exactly sure how we should have done it... considering the host isn't very prompt about getting back you.
But we had a nice stay....:]
We really enjoyed our stay here! The place was as advertised - plus there was way more there than we expected - such as dishes, cooking utensils, and all of that stuff. In fact - there was so much stuff in the well stocked kitchen we had a hard time finding a place to put the food we brought! The bbq out back was exactly as listed and we loved that. We loved the location - close to the lake. We did have a hard time figuring out the TV - but alas, we had our kids with us so they did that. :) The binder with instructions to all the appliances was a great detail. We would definitely consider renting this place again! AND - we would highly recommend it to our friends.

Beautiful home in a cute, quiet neighborhood. We had a wonderful experience!
Great location, easy to walk to everything you would want in Santa Cruz. If the place was a little cleaner I would absolutely recommend staying again. Comfortable bed. It's small but for 2 people for a weekend it definitely works.
My family and I had a wonderful time at the Surf Shack. It was very comfortable and my dogs had plenty of outdoor space to play. We were able to walk to the beautiful beach and did 2 nights at the Boardwalk. We can't wait to come again.
Awesome cabin near the lake! Great layout with the two bedrooms and two bathrooms. It gets warm in the living room if the curtain are open, but it cools down in the evening, just be sure to leave the windows open. We loved hanging out on the porch in the afternoon and using the grill for dinner. Thanks for such an awesome and affordable place to stay in Tahoe!
Fabulous location, adorable little cottage, and very clean. The lack of kitchen sink is a little odd, but it was expected and easy to work around. Great spot!
David and his wife are very kind and polite! They were enough patient and did not complain for a unforcasted electricity black-out in the house! Thank you and come back to the Brightside of Rome!
Of course I have known David my whole life because he is my younger brother! He is truly one of the nicest guys I know. Dave is fair, upbeat, positive, and laughs readily. He is an accomplished cook and musician, and best of all, he makes fantastic coffee drinks! As an Airbnb host, I understand the standard of comfort that guests need to enjoy their stay. The little apartment in Santa Cruz that Dave is renting is really cute, clean, and cozy... and very reasonably priced. It's right in front of his home in a wonderful location on the westside of Santa Cruz... a 10 minute walk to downtown or to Main Beach. I highly recommend David as an Airbnb host and hope you have the opportunity to stay in one of his rentals.
