Charming Victorian House
Updated victorian house. Still working on a few details but stay was pleasant. Had an issue which management resolved to my satisfaction. Would definitely stay there again. Close to boardwalk (walking distance) & UCSC (short drive). Sounds do travel through walls because of house’s age but house is charming & modernly decorated. Each room offers a different layout & bathroom setup-jetted tub, sauna shower, studio type room, separate bathroom, etc. i stayed in room 7 which includes the jetted tub in the room. Ok for couples or solo trip. Not ideal for family or other groups. Other rooms are ok for that.

We would go back ...
The area was quiet and nice ... It was so easy to walk to town ... we loved that ... the parking lot was difficult to get in and out of ... but once we parked we just walked everywhere! The lady was so, so nice ... she was helpful and very kind. We liked our room but the bed could use a new mattress ... it was just ok ... The water pressure in the shower tub could be better but we managed fine.
