    Canyon Retreat Close to Downtown

    Retreat in a luscious green canyon and discover the magic of Santa Cruz. We are perfectly located, surrounded by incredible nature & close to all the goodness Santa Cruz has to offer: dining, shopping, nature, trails, golf courses-all without having to navigate traffic to get there. Our apartment is a great place for couples to focus on each other & relax into themselves; solo adventurers and business travelers will also find this apartment has all the home away from home goodies one could want

    What guests are saying:

    “The Zen Canyon is easily twice as amazing as it looks at face value. Spent an incredible weekend with a loved one at Debra's amazing apartment space. There was plenty of wood and supplies to build a fire and unwind and enjoy some rainy Santa Cruz nights. Very close to downtown and easily accessible. The famous Mystery Spot is around the corner as well. Plenty of kitchen supplies to cook for yourself if wanted. Absolutely amazing back porch overlooking the forested canyon. 10/10 would and will return in the future. Thank you for the gracious hospitality and accommodations!”

    Santa Cruz, Near Beaches, Private, Quiet & Sweet!

    Sweet and charming space for one or two, in the heart of Live Oak, Santa Cruz. Our home is close to beaches and upper harbor (1.3 miles) and 10 minutes by car to SC Beach Boardwalk and Capitola by the Sea. Comfy double-sized vintage iron bed, a small separate bathroom and a small but charming outdoor area! This is a totally self-contained space with a private entrance!

    What guests are saying:

    “This little casita is a jewel. The space is small but perfect for one person. I stayed a week this time for a solo writing retreat and the privacy and quiet were just what I needed to work. I love the old Wedgewood stove and could cook all of my meals with food I brought myself. That plus the discount for the week’s booking made it possible to give myself the gift of solitude, with the ocean nearby for evening walks at the end of the working day. Many thanks to Maria and Geoff for keeping this tiny space in good working order, clean and bright!”
