I just spent a lovely weekend in Santa Cruz at The Darling House for the second time. The location is unbelievable, right across the street from West Cliff Drive. I had the pleasure of falling asleep to the faint sound of sea lions in the distance. The owners/hosts are very friendly and accommodating. This B & B has a lot of antique charm. I stayed upstairs in the China Room with a very unique and comfortable bed with a new Temperpedic mattress. I ate the breakfast during my first stay which I have fond memories of and the incredible smells that filled the house in the morning brought back great memories. I did not eat the meals this time due to visiting friends, choosing instead to dine with them. My room was equipped with bathrobes, a sink and two big windows. I was fine with the shared bathroom which was clean. This arrangement may not be for everyone, but given the age and charm of the house, it worked for me. Just be aware if you have any physical limitations, it is an old claw foot tub that requires some stepping up into.
Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Darling for another wonderful weekend. I will be back!More
