My fabulous Santa Cruz loft/studio is for rent by the month. I am flexible about the actual dates and duration at this point though I give priority to multiple month rentals. The studio is behind our main house but 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 gas fireplace, sleeping loft with sky light and door, separate full kitchen, private deck, good storage etc - about 600 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 the best bakery in town, a fantastic local market, 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 separate and off the kitchen is a private deck. The bathroom has a full bath/shower. There are two large closets inside, storage and washer dryer are 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.
