First of all, my wife and I are regulars to Santa Cruz and know that we got a great value staying here. Price was very good compared to anything else available, and the location is one of the best. The house is kept in near 1910 original condition. A bit run down in parts but if you appreciate authentic, then this house has many wonders. The room we stayed in was the Monteray, small but adequate. Linens and towels were a bit too worn, and shared bathroom could have been clearner, but ok for the value. The bathroom was very original ...so original that we had to use the pewter water jug to pour water over ourselves as we sat in this huge antique tub. Fantastic tub ...but not too guest friendly. I would hate to have to bathe myself this way every day. Everything else was great though. Host/hostess were very nice, parking is available, and there are a few cats in the area to amuse the animal lover. Next time we may try the top floor top priced room: the view is stunning and it has its own bathroom ...a plus in our books. Enjoy your stay.
