The Space

Separate, stand alone carriage house behind primary residence, Epworth-by-the-sea, a Historic Landmark home (originally built in 1887). Owner received green design award for using recycled and eco-friendly building materials. Restored and renovated building that was formerly used to store a buggy and horses, and provided chauffeur accommodations during the late 1800's. LOTS of personal touches and original, period-specific Eastlake Victorian design features. All linens provided, including beach towels. High ceilings, aprox 600+ square feet of living space overall. This is a unique and special property, and combines luxury with historic preservation

Rental includes complete access to carriage house, and private on-site parking. Laundry available for longer term guests. Home owner is an extrovert and LOVES meeting new people (and animal guests of all sorts), but at the same time, guests can expect that their privacy will be respected at all times

The Neighborhood

Walking distance to Boardwalk, Its Beach (no leash beach, a favorite with dogs!), world class surf, diverse culinary offerings, the SC Surf Museum, and the Municipal Wharf. Very close to downtown and shopping areas. GREAT (and very, very scenic) 10K run right outside your door! Located on the Westside "sun belt" of Santa Cruz

Other Things to Note

Well-behaved pets are welcome for an additional fee of $25 per night. Cleaning fee is $95 or more, depending upon the length of the stay. Rates are inclusive of all tourism and short-term rental taxes. Longer term and off season rates (Oct-Feb) are available, and a modest discount is ALWAYS given for stays longer than 4 nights in duration. Weekday rentals may be discounted further---just ask. 3 night minimum, please. Also please note: the carriage house is ideally suited to a couple, or perhaps a couple traveling with an animal companion. We love children of all ages, but the carriage house bedroom is very cozy and intimate, and cannot accommodate a crib without blocking emergency exit. Steep staircase leading up to living space means that unit may not be toddler friendly, so we ask that you please inform us in advance if you are traveling with infants or small children
