Marale’s House: Our friend, Marale, who lives 3 miles up the road from the studio, has a lovely contemporary home overlooking the Monterey Bay. She has two extra bedrooms, each with a full size bed, connected with a shared “Jack and Jill” bathroom. She rents each room (to our students only) for less than a hotel room. You may contact here about availability at firstname.lastname@example.org. Marale provides coffee in the morning, but not breakfast.
Sand Rock Farm, Aptos CA 3.77 miles from the studio.
Air BNB: One of our students highly recommends a stay at the Timshel Home. It’s a beautiful contemporary home 16 miles from the studio with amazing hosts Claire and Mark, beautiful views and a gourmet breakfast.
Our artist friend Chris, has an AirBNB called El Nido, which is close by in Aptos. “Cozy, quiet and private, El Nido (the Nest) is close to the beautiful beaches of the Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary and the Forest of Nisene Marks State Park. Just minutes away from a thriving downtown scene complete with world class music venues and restaurants, shopping, art galleries, and the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Whale watching, kayaking, cycling, hiking are all minutes away. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, or those looking for a quiet retreat.”
