“Thought the wildly high ratings must be exaggerated, but absolutely not!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2011

My daughter (in her twenties) and I travelled up for the weekend to get away and rest. I booked the room based on the reviews and the raves about the beds. None of it was hype. This lovely place is gorgeously maintained and discreetly managed. Every amenity is provided, and the homemade breakfasts are wonderful. It poured rain in buckets 2 out of the 3 days we were there, but cozy leather furniture by a fireplace turned that into a pleasure all its own. Only ran into other guests at breakfast, and never met the owners at all. It kind of felt like we had been loaned a beautiful vacation house by close friends. Loved Santa Cruz too. We'll go back the first chance we get.

Room Tip: Our room had the clawfoot tub and we loved it

We stayed at the Adobe on Green Street for just one night on our way down to Southern Cal. We wish we could have stayed longer. What a lovely place! Incredibly charming and warm with very reasonable rates. Love how eco-friendly they are too. Within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. We'll definitely return.

We completely enjoyed our stay here. We never met the owners but that was part of the charm. Breakfast appeared like magic while we were sleeping. The furnishings were lovely and thoughtful (lanterns for walking back from town after dark, faux glow candles for your room). I don't remember the name of our room but it had a claw-foot tub which was a selling point for me! The breakfast was homey and just right, scones and homemade jams were a big hit with us. It was an easy walk into town and our room had a little book of recommended restaurants, which proved helpful. I would absolutely recommend the Adobe on Green Street.

This was our first stay in Santa Cruz. We looked at many websites before selecting the Adobe on Green and were very pleased with our selection. It is just a short walk to the main shopping area, restaurants, etc. The Adobe is beautifully decorated and they attend to every little detail. Though the inn keepers do not appear, they leave notes and directions that made the stay very comfortable. A great breakfast of fruit, bagels, juice, yogurt was available. Our room was lovely and overlooked the garden and fountains. There was a notebook in the room with every possible bit of information you could ask for. Though we didn't see the innkeepers at all, their presence was everywhere. Just a lovely choice.

This was our first stop in California. We arrived after a long flight from UK and busy car journey from SF airport and found everything exactly as promised. The accommodation was clean and spacious. Refreshments were available from a well stocked 'fridge. Breakfast was excellent. It was a fantastic way to begin our holiday.

I only wish all B&Bs could be like this. The owners have created a little piece of heaven, a haven of peace and quiet yet only a few blocks from downtown S. Cruz.
Such a lot of thought has gone into making a stay here pleasurable from the delightful stylish decor, the lovely garden with a variety of birdlife, the library of books and DVDs, the 'green" credentials (uses solar power and recyles/composts), the comfortable room/bed, the great shower in the bathroom; the delicious buffet breakfast. Also the 'invisible' owners provide one of the best guides/information folders we've ever seen. Recommendations about local attractions, restaurants, and FAQs about the property.
Our stay of 2 nights at the end of a mammoth tour of California was just great! Thanks to Brion and Kristina, the perfect hosts.
