This is one of the newer apartment complex in Santa Cruz, and the price reflects that. This beautiful new apartment complex has great rooms and space that is spacious and very clean. Located closer to the downtown area, it is within walking distance of a lot of cafes and fast food joint. One of the downside of living at this place is that it is right next to a train track which occasionally wakes you up at night. The people who work here are friendly enough, but at the price you have to pay, you wish they would give you more.
This smoke shop is not really a smoke shop, it is a small convenience store that carries a variety of basic necessities that we need during the day. Small little place that in the back counter wall is lined with a variety of smoke related stuff, cigars and lighters, but surround the outside of this small little shop is just snacks and small basics for those smokers, such as gum and candy and cold softdrinks. The guy is really nice but only friendly to a few.
This apartment complex is the best! They are really nice and the prices is reasonable compared to a lot of places. Great location, between campus and downtown, there is a bus stop less than half a block from here and the people who work here are usually prompt and they love to run little contest and events that involve the community. This place has a nice little pool and a hot sauna for those who like those little comfort. There is only one parking space per apartment, but plenty of street parking that is not enforceable, but are taken pretty fast! Very lovely wooden look and feel. NO pets allowed because there is a bird sanctuary near by, but most people ignore the rule. Good, fair and great giveaway every month!
This cute little discount sofa store specializes in only sofas and has a lot of different type and style of sofas. They dont really pay attention to you as you come in but eventually someone will come and answer any questions you have. It is a family run business and the whole family work in this quaint little store. The daughter works in the back and you see her sitting there while her parents are out showing customers what they want to see. Not all of their sofas are new, they also carry some antiques and used furnitures, beyond sofas, tables and chairs, etc. Very nice family and great store to try out a lot of stuff, but there is limited walking space because they carry so much stuff!
PROS: lots of sofas
CONS: not enough room to really look or browse
This is actually a very interesting store. Mainly carrying weird name brand and expansive brand such as maytag, this place also specializes in maintanince for a lot of the stuff here. Big area, with not a lot of clutter. This place leaves lots of room for people to wander around looking to see and test out which appliances, such as refridgator or stove and the usual washer dryer. You can test the stuff out and the floor models are relatively attractive. The sales man are ok, a little pushy but overall a nice place if you want to support locally own business, as opposed to going to sears.
In an area where there isnt much place to find a good comic book location, this places exclusively carry all varieties of comics, beyond those of American traditional marvel comic, they also carry mangas and magic cards.

This comic book store carries a varieties of merchandise that includes some dvd, old and collectible comic books all lined up on one side of the wall. They have newly released stuff on two shelves in the center that makes a nice little oval shape for you to walk around.

PROS: good people, nice varities
CONS: not a lot of space to browse or sit.
Super Pups is a great place to give your pups a salon day. Very friendly and clean place, with a small waiting room, where you can watch the dogs get pampered and primp. The lady who owns this little unique place is very nice and takes care of handling your little treasure with the utmost respect and affection. The dog is loved and well taken care of here with a great wash area and dry. In general, this place washes and clean all animal, but specializes in doggy daycare. At a great (affordable) price that you can take your dog every couple of months to get cleaned and brushed (teeth) that is. Everyone is really nice, only two people really does the hands on washing and cleaning of the dogs.
I got my nails done here this last weekend and I gotta say, they are the best! I haven't been such a nice salon in a while! Not only do they treat you the way you deserved to be treated, with respect and affection, but they also do great nail service! They started off by cleaning my nails and than moisturize it and than follow by a quick hand massage and than they clean your nails and cuticle! oh... such wonderful work and treatment! I love it! They were really nice and friendly and very attentive to their work! Highly recommend coming here to get some wonderful treatment done!
I guess this would be a place for your money, you get the most out of it. However, I wouldn't recommend this place mainly because of the bad service and rude people I've meant there! The people are a bit snobby and they dismiss all my questions, and barely gave me the time of day to make my appointment. The workers, talks more amongst eachother and I wasn't sure if they were even really paying attention to what they were doing. The decor is nice and cutesy, definately interesting, but the demeanor of everyoen who was in there was horrid.
Lots of different things here besides just flower designs. This lovely florist is in a small clove in between homes and some businesses. The place is a very homey feel to it, with lots of wall art and with the use of things beyond flowers, it is a really nice place to find some cute design and centerpieces for your home. It has some great deals on single and group flowers, like a sunflower is only for $1 right now. They decorate your purchase with lovely floral ribbons and celeophane, very nice.
