House | Entire Home
Available Dates:

Description

Available starting February 2024 My fabulous Santa Cruz loft/studio is for rent by the month. I am flexible about the actual dates and duration though I give priority to multiple month rentals. The studio is a stand-alone house behind our main house and very private. It is a good distance away nestled in the trees - in fact it is further from our house than most Santa Cruz houses are from one another. It is a loft style space with high ceilings, a thermostat controlled gas fireplace, sleeping loft with sky light and door, separate full kitchen, private deck, good storage etc - about 650 square feet. You can't hear us and we can't hear you. Our place is half a mile to downtown Santa Cruz, a mile to the beach, and on the bus lines to the university. It has its own washer and dryer and a parking space in the driveway. It is a special tranquil place that feels miles away from anything but is in the middle of everything. Around the corner you can find a fantastic local market, bakery, music venues, restaurants etc but inside the house you will think you are in the woods far away. It is a terrific place to write. The house has a unique layout - see the photos. The main room has lofted ceilings, and lots of windows. It is set up into four areas - living room, office, dining room and sleeping alcove (can also be another sitting area if you prefer). Up the ladder there is a sleeping loft with a queen foam mattress. This space has a pocket door for privacy and a skylight for air/light. The kitchen is a separate room but without a door between it and the main room. It is a full kitchen with gas stove, full sized refrigerator, stone counter tops and microwave (plus toaster, french press, kettle etc) but no dishwasher or garbage disposal. Just off the kitchen is a private deck. The recently remodeled (2024) bathroom has a large walk-in rain head shower with newly tiled floors. There are two large closets in the main space plus storage and a washer/dryer under the studio. Rent includes all utilities and internet - except phone. Please note: The sleeping alcove has a foam sofa that makes into a foam topped sleeping surface topped with a mattress topper. The sleeping loft has a foam queen mattress. The sleeping surfaces are considered very firm. The laundry facility is in an unfinished cellar accessed by an external staircase. Bikes and surfboards can be stored down there too.
