Cute home in Great Neighborhood in Sunny Santa Cruz

Our home is 1000 sq/ft, 2 bd, 1 bath with a lovely covered patio in back. Hardwood floors throughout, the large livingroom has a working fireplace, an upright piano and a flat screen TV with cable and Netflix, and a DVD/BlueRay player. It opens to a large sunny kitchen with dishwasher, gas stove/oven and a microwave. WiFi is available., There is a laundry room for use as well. We have a small backyard rental house that has it's own yard and separate entrance. The tenant is a quiet grad student.

The neighborhood is quiet, and contains lots of families and friendly people. We are well-situated, close to downtown Santa Cruz, the beach/ boardwalk and hiking/biking activities. We are located about a mile from stunning WestCliff Drive, with its 2 miles of walking/biking path, beaches and surf spots, and a bit over a mile from the Santa Cruz Wharf with it's restaurants, and the adjacent, world-famous Beach/Boardwalk amusement park.

We are also a walk away from The Surf City Vintners collective of micro-boutique wineries, cafes and shops, an area of former warehouse space which has turned into a hip, trendy destination.

North of the university has many hiking and mountain biking trails, and there are several state parks nearby, including Henry Cowell and Big Basin.

The eclectic downtown has a vibrant music and art scene and great local restaurants.

For outside of Santa Cruz activities, we are an hour and a half drive to San Francisco, 40 minutes from Monterey, Carmel and Montery Bay Aquarium, and an hour and a half from stunning Big Sur recreation area. Napa valley is about a 2 1/2 hour drive.
