The Surf Shack is a tiny apartment, that is in the back of my main house. It is alley facing and has no view. It is perfect for small families, a couple or anyone who wants to be near everything! In being compliant with the Santa Cruz transient occupancy tax(11%) the city tax is included in price. Therefore the advertised room rate is $85.70 and the TOT is an additional $9.30 equalling $95 a night. You may request this breakdown in a receipt anytime during your stay.
