In the heart of historical downtown Santa Cruz, our spacious family friendly home is only a few minute stroll to the beach, the Boardwalk, and many restaurants, bars, and cafes! It's the perfect destination for an escape to paradise -- come see for yourself!
**ATTENTION!** Per Santa Cruz City law, we are required as Airbnb hosts to collect the Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) separately from your Airbnb transaction. The TOT is 11% of the nightly rate (before fees) for each night you stay. To make the process easier we will send you a request for the tax through the Airbnb site. If you prefer, we can collect this in cash or check upon check-in or during checkout.
Disponible para huéspedes
You have access to the downstairs portion of the house and backyard only. The upstairs and downstairs are completely separate and private from each other, as our house used to be a duplex.
We have a driveway which can fit one car comfortably, and a tight squeeze for two but it can be done. We also provide one parking permit which you may borrow during your stay, for parking on our street only. This must be returned upon check out as we rely on it for our guests and cannot be replaced.
PLEASE NOTE: Our neighborhood is family oriented- this is NOT a party house! Please be respectful of those that may be staying above you/our neighbors and be quiet after 10PM. If you plan to have a celebration, please consider renting our entire house. See below for details.

Hello, we're Rex and Briana Solway! We have both lived in Santa Cruz our entire lives, and know the town like the back of our hand(s). We enjoy traveling, fine dining, photography, and the ocean-- we wouldn't be able to live far from the beach! We're avid sushi lovers, die hard Survivor fans, adore cats (but no worries if you have allergies, no kitties live here!), and often find ourselves critiquing the films and shows we watch. We worship the sun, but thrive under the moon and the stars when it's dark outside. We're always looking for the next adventure that awaits around the corner.
We're dedicated to providing the best possible experience for you and your family, and will create a unique experience you'll never forget!
