This B&B is very charming and eclectic. The hosts are very friendly and helpful and great to talk about the area. The homemade breakfast was delicious, eggs, veggies, chorizo and incredible homemade tortillas. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and stocked with what we needed. The location very good, the beach, lighthouse path and boardwalk are all within walking distance....

I recently had a chance to revisit Santa Cruz, the city of my youth (where I learned to surf a half century ago!), and was fortunate enough to stay, with my beloved bloodhound Kyno, at this very charming and welcoming B&B. The rooms were tastefully furnished. But even more tasteful was the breakfast, which included homemade tortillas and a scrumptious...

Staying at Boca del Cielo is like staying at family's. It's friendly and cozy, the food is good, and the décor is eclectic. The room was small but enough space, everything clean. Breakfast of eggs and chorizo with homemade tortillas and salsa, along with fresh fruit was absolutely fabulous. They started serving a half hour earlier than usual to accommodate...

This B and B is a jewel. The owners are so friendly and you cant beat a yummy breakfast which is included (homemade tortillas YUM!) It's a block away from the Boardwalk and a cute bowling alley.

So sweet. Great authentic homemade breakfast. Lovely family. The rooms were well-appointed and the beds very comfortable. Really enjoyed being able to walk downtown to the amusement park. We were just a few blocks away yet it was very peaceful and quiet there.

We decided to go to Santa Cruz and see the Redwoods (that is another review) We drove 14 + hours and the owners of Boca Del Cielo were wonderful. The room was clean and comfortable, though we weren't in it much. But more than that the breakfast was pronominal. To start there was fresh brewed coffee, hand cut fruit, and...

My husband and I stayed here a few weeks ago and loved it. They were so nice and friendly. We stayed on the main floor in the Frida Kahlo themed room. Our bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. Nice private bathroom. It's in a great location with a free parking pass and we were able to just...

My girlfriend and I stayed here on New Years Eve and it was perfect for us. We went to the Cocoanut Grove NYE party and after partying we walked probably less than 100 feet and we were at the front door to B&B. We did not need to worry about getting a cab = it was great. We stayed in...
