A redwood-floored sun-filled, shuttered bedroom with arched windows and gabled ceiling in a unique 1860s home in Santa Cruz. My 'Carpenter Gothic' home is one of the earliest houses built by settlers in the mid 19th. century. Both bedroom and adjacent bathroom (shower, toilet, washbasin) are fully remodelled and immaculately clean on the second floor of my home. The guest room is private, quiet, and has its own entrance staircase. It offers panoramic views of the Monterey Bay in one of Santa Cruz's oldest, safest, quietest neighborhoods. Walking distance to downtown through other historic areas. 1/2 acre of mature gardens and an 'orchidarium' surround this unique house on the hill.
The main bus line to UCSC has a stop 3 minutes' walk away; the main terminus is a 15" walk - all downhill! Nearby attractions include the Santa Cruz Mission; Mission Plaza park; historic downtown replete with Victorian homes; a large variety of coffee shops and restaurants. The bus route goes straight up to the UCSC Main campus; the bike ride up the hill takes about 20 minutes and granny gears! Pogonip open space/UCSC campus is also walking accessible.
Please read/view all details regarding beds and breakfast offerings thoroughly.
Guests are welcome to have a light, European-style breakfast in my kitchen, featuring homemade preserves, bread, and seasonal fruit from the garden. If guests want a larger, heavier, cooked breakfast, I encourage them to visit one of the many local, convenient, breakfast locations.

This is a quiet, non-smoking, cat-loving house where dogs would have a hard time but cat-lovers will be delighted!
