Charming studio for two (or one!), in the heart of Live Oak, Santa Cruz. Our "Casita" (Little House) is close to beaches and upper harbor. Minutes from downtown Santa Cruz, Beach Boardwalk and Capitola by the Sea. Studio is located behind our house but has a separate entrance. The Casita is completely self-contained with kitchenette (with vintage Wedgewood stove) and small separate bathroom. Sleep in comfort in a double-sized vintage iron bed and enjoy a small but charming outdoor area!
The Casita is a totally self-contained studio with a separate entrance. It is small (approximately 240 sq. ft.) and meant to house only one or two guests at a time. It has a *small* separate bathroom with toilet, stall shower and a toilet tank sink. There are pictures of the toilet tank sink in our listing photos and we recommend that you check them out if you have never seen one before!
The Casita comes with freshly laundered bed linens, bath towels, hand towels, wash cloths and bath mat (for the stall shower). The kitchen will also have a freshly laundered kitchen towel and drying mat. I thoroughly clean, sanitize and mop up after each guest leaves to make it clean and fresh for you.
Guests can access the separate entrance to the Casita by entering the gate to the right of the house. There is a reserved parking space in the driveway, (behind my little vintage travel trailer). Guests are encouraged to (gently) use the vintage dishes/bowls and vintage silverware. Also feel free to use any and all of the appliances, cooking pots/utensils, etc.
The Casita also has a (small) private yard with a metal outdoor table and chairs, along with a comfortable wicker chair and ottoman which we hope guests will enjoy. If uncovered and used during the day, we ask that guests use the covers provided at night since Santa Cruz fog can get things a bit wet (and eventually rusty).
Interaction with guests
Guests are welcome to contact us via text message or phone call at any time for any reason or question. We are available as much or as little as you want!
Other things to note
Guests are welcome to cook on the vintage Wedgewood stove (the one that I grew up with that belonged to my Mother), however, the Broiler does not work. Not to worry though, all the burners, griddle and oven are working fine!
We now have wifi in the Casita, however, there is no cable. We do provide a list of DVD's and are happy to loan them out during your stay!
