Located in Santa Cruz but not in town, you'll be able to go for a hike at Henry Cowel or one of the many nearby trails then come back and rest in comfort. Nestled behind our house among the redwoods you will have a relaxing stay in this studio with views of a trickling creek below and the sounds of great horned owls in the evening. Very private location just off Glen Canyon Road and only 10 minutes from downtown Santa Cruz.

The space
Once upon a time, this structure was a game room that we converted into 2 studio units. There is a deck with a sitting area just outside of the unit. Keyless entry and Alexa integrated controlled lighting make this unit super easy to access and use. Since the cell signal out here is a challenge we’ve installed an Orbi 6 Mesh WiFi system allowing for WiFi calling and Zoom calls to keep you connected as you unwind and relax. The kitchenette is complete with a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, glassware, flatware, and utensils but does not have a cooking surface. You might not want to cook anyway when you have access to all of the wonderful restaurant's SC has to offer. The hardware and faucets in this space play off the beautiful golden sunsets so you'll see lots of champaign brass details. A Roku enabled 50" 4K display will let you dive into a nice movie to end your day. Dual pane windows and marine wool insulation make this space warm at night and cool during the day. If the temperature dips low the integrated thermostat will start the hydronic baseboard heaters and warm up the studio quickly.

Where you’ll be

Santa Cruz, California, United States

We are tucked away and we like it like that as will you:) Redwood Drive (intersecting road across from our driveway entrance) is a popular area for people to park and walk up and back. We're in a valley so it's very quiet and other than the chirping of birds we have deer, raccoons, wild turkeys, possums, coyotes that visit frequently. Depending on the time of year we have the Monarchs... and sometimes Big Foot.

Michael Jimenez and Karimar Santiago are both originally from Puerto Rico but have lived in california for a while. They have a little 6 pound MaltiPoo dog named Bonnie and she’s got them both wrapped around her little paw. While Karimar is the actual owner, Bonnie only has eye for her papa... they are inseparable. Michael is an award winning experiential designer and Karimar is a dedicated PhD psychologist. Since March 2020 the live events industry shut down so Michael shifted gears and meticulously designed the two units that exist today. Microsoft, Oracle Salesforce, GE and Cisco are some of the clients that Michael has designed expositions for so this was a natural fit. Karimar also works from home so they are always available to answer any questions to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Surf season: October is when the waves start pumping. Santa Cruz is world renowned for it’s quality and abundance of surf spots. Our location allows for easy access to all of the spots that Michael takes advantage of. A life long surfer and waterman that has traveled the world to fill the stoke he is always available to chat about surfing. When he’s not working you’ll find him and Bonnie at the beach. If your interested in surfing lessons or Stand Up Paddling either can be arranged. If your coming specifically for surf or mountain biking we have ample secure storage and work areas if you need to make a repair.
