[***Welcome to a Great Home-Share! See below for what to expect if you haven't stayed in a Home-Share before*****]
This peaceful 2-story home is on a large property that’s restful, private, and surrounded by nature. The neighborhood is situated on a lovely hillside that looks out over the beautiful Santa Cruz and Corralitos mountains. Bedrooms are all downstairs; kitchen, dining room and living room are upstairs. 2 decks, One on each level. There’s a slightly narrower than average staircase. There are also 8 steps from the driveway to the front door, & 5 steps from the entryway to the main level. 2.5 baths are a great plus for groups of 5 - 7. Beds are extra comfortable — firm with a soft pillow-top that seems to please everyone! Single fold-out floor futon as well, a snug fit on the floor in the master bedroom, or use it in the living room for more space-- be aware the living room is quite sunny In the morning. Floor Futon is best for smaller people & kids; it's not thick. Couch is Not available for sleeping. Open floor plan is great for family and friends to hang out! Dining room and living room are both great for playing the nice collection of board games available.2 decks offer a spectacular view of the mountains; one deck off the dining room and the other off the Master Bedroom.
Surroundings:
The mountain range views from the entire backside of the house are spectacular. Upper deck is usually sunny, lower deck offers shade on hot days. Deer can be seen roaming and snacking under neighbors houses at dawn and dusk. Use the house-binoculars for a close-up of the large Woodpecker Family in the gorgeous Live Oak trees off of the deck. An owl often whoo-whoos late at night. Big lots on the hill and acres of open land nearby give a rural feel to the whole neighborhood. Across the street you can take in a great view of the Monterey Bay. The narrow streets in the area don’t have public street parking, so check w/host if you’ve got more than 2 vehicles, or if both vehicles are extra long. Driveway is a narrow bridge; 2 cars park one in front of the other.
5 minute drive to Forest of Nisene Marks State Park & 5 minute drive to beaches. 10 minute drive to beautiful Capitola Village by the Sea. Restaurants, grocery stores, drug stores and cafés all within a 5 minute drive.
New to the California Central Coast? Check the weather before you visit, and bring a jacket even in summer—It cools off a lot after sunset. Summer temperatures 11 C - 24 C. (53 F - 75 F)
Strict occupancy LIMIT OF 7 GUESTS, including babies, for example 5 adults +2 babies works. Sorry no toddlers -- parents don't always feel comfortable with the possibility of their toddler pulling a chair up to the deck railing so they can watch the wildlife. Outdoor surveillance will confirm the # in your Group. If you’re planning on inviting visitors, confirm with the host first so I can tell you where to park without getting towed. Limit 2 cars per reservation -- there's no street parking in the neighborhood. Check with host before bringing extra long car/truck/van, to confirm it will fit in the smallish driveway.
* DO YOU HAVE MORE THAN 7 IN YOUR GROUP? Our county permit limits this home to a 7- person capacity.
To protect our permit, you’ll be asked during check-in to sign an agreement that no more than 7 people (Including babies) will be in the house, or ask for info about No-tow parking if you have visitors. Guests agree to leave the property and forfeit the pre-paid fee if camera shows more than 7 people have entered. Host usually stays in the neighborhood so is available for concierge services like ice cream emergency delivery (LOL) or other urgent needs!
**************** Home-Share defined: Airbnb Home-Shares were created to subsidize housing costs for hosts where real estate prices are very high. It also lets travelers get a much better value than traditional vacation rentals. V-R-B-O syle homes didn't used to be offered on Airbnb, since they have more overhead and less personal attention/host resources. Reviewers praise this HomeShare, not for luxuries or designer landscaping, but for Incredible views, fantastic location near beach & mountains, sparkling cleanliness, great beds, coziness, family feel & welcoming vibe + superb customer service! Because I home-share I offer many extras by sharing my own supplies (beach towels, cooler, games, quality toiletries, food, etc.). As the owner of just 1 home, I can keep overhead way down and offer the most competitive pricing in the area. If you haven’t used a home share before, be aware that it’s noticeable someone lives in this house part time. A few family photos, clothes in closets and food in kitchen will be apparent. If you're used to staying in dedicated vacation rentals, you may want to shop other listings to stick with what you’re used to.

A Word About Value:
In early 2019, Santa Cruz was rated the most expensive real estate in the United States. Luckily, it’s also among the most beautiful places in the country. I make sure this property is priced competitively with nearby 3 bedroom homes. If you find a comparable listing available for the same date for less $, send me screenshots and I‘ll gladly match the price!

Accesso per gli ospiti
I'll meet you at the house upon arrival if my schedule allows. if not; then I'll need to speak with you on the phone the day before check-in, to relay information about keys. For security reasons, I will only give info about home entry via telephone call.
2 beautiful decks, 3 bedrooms, kitchen, dining room, living room, fireplace, central heating + space heaters. Fully stocked kitchen, share basic cooking food like spices, coffee & tea, cooking oil, mayo/mustard etc. Queen sized bed in each bedroom + foldout floor futon, sleeps total 7 people with foldout floor futon in the living room (or great for parents in master bedroom w/a child). Please note couch is not available as a bed. Space for 2 cars only. (No street parking available on our narrow street)
* DO YOU HAVE MORE THAN 7 GUESTS?
During check-in you will be asked to sign an agreement that no more than 7 people will be in the house, including babies, and that you agree to leave early and forfeit 100% of pre-paid rent if camera shows more than 7 people entering the house. So many groups have been bringing more than the allowed limit, that we’re hoping this will help clarify the rule.

Altre cose da tenere a mente
Please note: if you're income is pretty far above national average, you may be happier in a more expensive, upscale rental, probably a dedicated vacation rental instead of a home-share like this one. Hosts like me who home-share (i.e. airbnb the home they live in) do it to subsidize housing costs where real estate prices are high. In contrast, vacation-home owners who own the home mainly as an investment property are more likely to invest in fine furniture, home / garden design & luxury amenities. This home is so popular, not for it's fancy or perfect interior, but because of the fantastic location near beach & mountains, its exceptional cleanliness, great beds, general comfort & the welcoming vibe! On the other hand, it's because I home-share that I'm able to offer the most competitive pricing and an extra level of service and hospitality not found in vacation homes.

Aptos, California, Stati Uniti

Wonderful neighborhood at the top of a hill overlooking the ocean and the mountains. Cul-de-sac is tucked away where few know it's here.No through traffic, nice and slow, everybody knows everybody and keeps an eye out for each other. Very safe, Very friendly. The Town of Aptos has several independent cafés, plus Pete's coffee and Starbucks. Some of the most beautiful beaches on the Central Coast are here: deep, wide, quiet, and bordered by beautiful cliff-scapes.
The quaint village of Capitola is a 10 minute drive down the Pacific Coast Highway. Dozens of cute shops and restaurants along a pretty beach and Harbor.
The beautiful forest of Niscene Marks State Park is 5 minutes from here. Hike all day in oak, Evergreen, and Redwood forest: gorgeous! Both easy and rigorous hikes there.
Famous and fabulous downtown Santa Cruz and beach boardwalk are a 20 minute drive down Pacific Coast Highway. Buzzing with activity, fine arts, music, movies, street performers, our best restaurants, plenty of fun.
And my favorite, the 3 mile path that winds along West Cliff Drive begins at the boardwalk and ends at Natural Bridges Beach, known for its swarms of the endangered monarch butterfly. Don't miss this if you're here in January - February! I love to ride my bike on West Cliff and watch the world class surfers at Steamers Lane near the lighthouse / Surfer's Museum.
Also fun to check out:
Longs Marine Lab Aquarium
University of California Santa Cruz (best view of Monterey Bay you will ever see)
Big Basin State Park in Santa Cruz Mountains & Henry Cowell State Park in Felton (both have wonderful gentle hikes for younger kids, world-famous Gigantic Redwood Trees)

Monterey Bay aquarium or the
World-renowned Big Sur coast line -- unforgettable!

(profile photo: sharing famous Abbot Pizza "salad pizza" with my niece in Venice Beach, California") I absolutely love living in Santa Cruz -- how did I get so lucky? Sharing my home is a real pleasure, and so is getting to see a little slice of the world through the eyes of my guests. I enjoy playing tour director and socializing, or giving people space to bask in the peace and beauty of my home and gorgeous surroundings. When you're here you can share lots of food I make available. Coffee, tea, toast, jam, and all your basic kitchen stuff like butter, olive oil, spices. Use cupboards / fridge for your food. Join forces and share occasional meals when we catch each other on the same schedule. Lounge on the deck and wile away another day in paradise. It's a five minute drive to good food, deluxe markets, plain ol' safeway, lots of cafes, and best of all spectacular beaches and mountain hiking. Cute beach-village 10 minutes away is Capitola, tons of novelty shops, art, jewelry etc. Hope to have the chance to host you for some R&R in our little slice of heaven.
