Steps from UC Santa Cruz—a Home away from Home (2 bed/1 bath)

Our home is available to rent while we’re out of the country, which gives you many benefits over a typical rental: It’s in excellent condition, it has everything you could possibly need (fully functioning kitchen and office, for example) and it has a pretty patio/garden area.


2 bedroom/1 bathroom home, ~900 square feet (~85 sq. meters) only ½ mile (0.80 km) to UCSC main entrance. Suitable for couple or single professional.

Beautifully furnished, comfortable home in the friendly Roundtree community—a park-like setting with lots of redwoods and other trees, walking paths and views of Monterey Bay. Large community pool (free) is open spring through fall.

Bedroom 1: Queen bed; large closet; dresser; bedside table with reading lamp; large window to the garden/patio; bathroom en suite.

Bedroom 2/office. Desk; bookshelf; closet; large window to private garden area. Good quality queen airbed/linens available if you have guests. You also have use of our office equipment/supplies, including a B/W LaserJet printer.

Kitchen: Oven/stove; refrigerator with French doors and bottom freezer; dishwasher, microwave, large toaster oven, washer/dryer. Well-equipped with pots/pans, dishes, utensils … everything you need. Large pantry.

About Me
Writer/novelist, communications consultant, traveler, amateur wildlife photographer, safari addict, greyhound rescue volunteer. Dual-citizen (American/British), I've lived and traveled throughout Europe and Africa. I've signed up here because I'll be continuing my travels, and because I live very close to the University of California Santa Cruz, so my home is very convenient for visiting academics.

My husband and I hugely enjoyed staying in Jenny's house while she was away. She has a beautiful and very comfortable home, in a scenic and peaceful neighborhood. Our experience of renting from Jenny was also great. We found that she was easy to communicate with and very accommodating. Excellent Gemma 7/20/2017 3:04:00 PM
