About your host - we have been teachers in the area for over 10 years. Please be considerate on work nights - noise travels and we need good sleep for work. Thank you!

We are low key easy going teachers, happy to give you complete privacy or hang out, as you wish. As teachers we try get to bed by 10PM during the week. If you could keep the noise down on school nights, we'd be very grateful!

We are both teachers in the area. We feel fortunate to call Santa Cruz our hometown. There are many outdoor activities to explore and enjoy within walking distance from our home. Jared enjoys playing tennis around the corner at Neary Lagoon, and Nelly takes advantage of the beautiful scenery while running from home to Wilder Ranch or Natural Bridges State Park. Jared has spent the last year updating the house, and now we have the time to begin focusing on planning trips to places we’d love to experience. We both love to travel and are familiar with being foreign to what a community has to offer, so we are happy to share what we love about this region with you.
