The Dake House as it is known in the Santa Cruz Historic Registry, was built in 1904 by Clarence Dake with the generous support of his wife’s family money. He was a gentleman farmer and started the first escrow/title business in Santa Cruz. The house sits on a hill overlooking the town of Santa Cruz, the mission and the sweeping views of the Monterey Bay and the Boardwalk. While High Street is centrally located of the main routes to UCSC, most of the 2/3 acre property is surrounded by nature. Red tail hawks soar and perch in the tall trees; deer regularly come by to graze.
Your space was the Carriage House of the estate, now a garden cottage with a private entry, enclosed redwood patio, high ceilings, light filled room with small kitchen. The totally private 5' outdoor tub/shower is enclosed on a redwood deck with high walls. (***Please note that there is NO INDOOR BATHING FACILITY in the cottage; if bathing in the rain or under the stars isn't your cup of tea, you are welcome to use downstairs bathroom of the main house, 50 feet away across a small uncovered parking area). The toilet and sink are inside the cottage. A comfortable cot is available, if needed.
The cottage has bamboo floors, oriental rug, small table, TV (Netflix and Amazon prime enabled), a small skylight and a larger skylight which opens, a comfortable queen size canopy bed, a small fully equipped kitchen with convection oven, toaster, gas stove top, Nespresso coffee maker, Brita filtered water, microwave oven. Outdoors on the private enclosed patio is a table for 4.

My Airbnb is mostly run like a very, very nice hostel...very often with self check-in and often not the private welcome from the host. That being said I do live in the house and usually love meeting people when it is in the flow of my coming and going. I and my assistant do my best to take care of my guests needs as quickly possible. If urgent and you don't hear from me when you message through the Airbnb app, you can call or text my cell phone.
I've done my best to offer my guests a beautiful and comfortable place to be. I want this to be your home away from home. If something isn't working for you or if I can improve the accommodation, please let me know. I want my guests to have an exceptional stay in my home.
