“Oasis of bliss”
Reviewed 9 December 2012

What is there to say. We had another great night at the Adobe and conclude once more that there is nothing like it. The Adobe is stylish, serene, and cozy. We curled up in bed with the fireplace on, watched a movie from the large DVD collection in the library, and then slept like babies in the comfy bed, just perfect. Breakfast included delicious homemade and organic treats. Leaving this oasis of bliss was very VERY difficult and we hope to return again soon.

Room Tip: Lookout Room really does have amazing views. The fireside room is another gem. All rooms have their...

Beautiful, peaceful Bed and Breakfast very convenient to Downtown Santa Cruz. The rooms are simple but classy with beautiful Indian photographs, wonderful beds, and gorgeous bathrooms with Spanish tile. The breakfast was healthy and scrumptious. The chocolate lavender scones were divine!

A smaller humbler version of San Ysidro Ranch. We have stayed here many times and never seen any staff.
The kitchen is open and breakfast is self serve.
The garden is lovely.
The rooms are clean and tasteful.

Tranquil, conveniently located, yummy breakfast, fresh cut dahlias, and easy bird watching from the breakfast room! My husband and I were in Soquel for a wedding and wanted to find a place to stay for one night. Adobe allows one night stays -- where many places do not. We live in the east bay and did not want to drive back that evening. We stayed in the Lookout Room, which had a large shower. The owners intentionally give everyone a sense of privacy by not being around. It felt like we were staying in a quiet home with all our basic needs met! For breakfast, there was cereal, fresh baked mini scones, fresh strawberries and bananas, bagels with fresh jam or almond butter, juice, Peets coffee, and a variety of teas. It was a perfect one night get away!

Room Tip: If you want or need a shower, be sure to check if the room has one. The Lookout Room has a nice show...

We were travelling with some friends but we wanted to keep moving toward San Francisco so we booked into the Adobe on Green Street. We made a rookie travelling mistake not thoroughly checking where the area we booked in was in comparison to our current location. After a long and tiring day to see the 50miles to go sign saw us groan. But ... When we arrived late we called the owner and she immediately picked up the phone and told us how to get our keys etc. A little bit strange to not be greeted face to face by your hosts but we found our room, Fireside, which had it's own private entrance from the car park and access to a little outdoor table area where we ate our dinner. I can Imagine if there was a noisy group it could be a pain but I don't believe Adobe attracts those sort of people.

I think this is the smallest room but it had everything we needed and the attention to detail, for example, the hand towel in the bathroom was at face height so you could easily find it easily, beautiful towels and sustainable products, a lovely breakfast of your own choice from a selection including home made savory and sweet scones makes this unique spot a standout and I would certainly recommend it to my friends. Thank you for a truly lovely experience.

Room Tip: Try and get a room away from the car park just in case you did get a loud crowd out at the outdoor t...

Adobe on Green Street B&B is the perfect place to stay in Santa Cruz, CA. This B&B has so many features and benefits to it that make staying at it a totally delightful experience. And, just because the innkeepers aren't around doesn't mean that small details are amiss - well, they aren't.
Details really do count and the list is long but what I found really wonderful and worth repeating is the location is perfect...a 3 block stroll to downtown Santa Cruz and maybe a mile+ walk to the ocean, comfortable bed, clean room and surrounding areas, jacuzzi bath and separate shower, chilled drinks in the fridge and a light but satisfying breakfast in the morning.
But, most of all the best thing was the opportunity to view the fantastic amount of different types of feathered friends that were hovering outside the windows feeding at the bird feeders. During our stay in the morning, during breakfast I saw about six different types of birds and that was quite a spectacle.
I can't wait to come back to Adobe on Green Street again for a future visit. It is just a fantastic B&B and an oasis of tranquility in Santa Cruz.

Room Tip: Well, we stayed in 'The Retreat Room' and this had an extra area where there were two leathe...

This is our second visit – the first was last summer. I am grateful that the rooms don’t have a two-night minimum, as we are sort-of locals who spend one night when having a Shakespeare Santa Cruz weekend. I hate to even review this place because I want to keep it a secret ;-) though obviously from all the great reviews many others know about it.

The building is immaculate, grounds are lovely, location a perfect distance from downtown (walkable). Access to free sodas/drinks in the fridge is a nice touch, and the breakfast is something we look forward to – mainly for the scones. These aren’t your traditional dry crumbly scones. They are somewhere between biscuits, shortbread and cookies – totally yummy. The self-serve breakfast (in the sunny, picturesque kitchen and dining area overlooking gardens, fountains, hummingbirds, etc.) also had granola, fresh strawberries, bananas, yogurt, bagels, orange juice, hard-boiled eggs, and WONDERFUL homemade apricot jam (there were actually three flavors).

If you’re a shower person be sure you don’t get a room with just a bath (though I was fine with, and loved, the bathtub in my room). I love the décor, books, guest computer, free parking, and the many outdoor and indoor areas perfect for sitting, sipping wine, reading, etc.

The room upstairs is the best, IMO. Quite large with a nice view and lots of privacy. However, the Adobe walls mean that all the rooms are super quiet. I’m not sure what size beds we had, but definitely not a king, so check on the size and make sure you’re OK with it, if you’re used to a king.

This is a wonderful, peaceful, convenient and enjoyable home away from home. Silly tourists staying elsewhere –this is the best place in Santa Cruz!
