We have been Airbnb and Homeaway hosts for over 3 years, and have hosted over 315 guests. Our reviews are 5 stars and we have been "Superhosts" on Airbnb for the last 18 months. We've posted some photos confirming this info - scroll to the bottom of the photo list. Point is, we have experience hosting! This is a full home, with a full kitchen and full driveway in a great, central location. Our charming, solar-powered house has many tech comforts and environmentally-conscious features. We are on the West Side and near everything: Boardwalk, UCSC, downtown, famous surf spots, Wilder Ranch... You can walk/bike to so many interesting places - enjoy Surf City. Park in our big driveway. Brand new deck and outdoor shower.
This is not an apartment/studio/cottage, it's an actual house with a yard!
NOTE: Landscaping is now a couple years old, so the plants are grown in and prettier than the pics show. Pergola, sitting walls, big patio, garden. It's gorgeous. Check out the photos!

About your host - we have been teachers in the area for over 14 years.
We have a wonderful tenant who lives in the studio out back. It's a separate residence and should have zero affect on you. She's a school teacher like us, and is super nice. Most likely, you'll never meet her.
