“We loved Santa Cruz's charming downtown and proximity to the Boardwalk and beach. The area is so lovely with the redwoods just minutes from the sand and shore. We couldn't have been happier with the whole experience! Looking forward to some golf, hiking or biking, shopping and dining on our next trip!”

“On our way home from Aptos, we got hungry and decided to grab a late lunch. We got the yummy coconut shrimp and the most delicious rack of ribs. It really made our day.”

“The year was 2015... our second escape to the Inn at Pasatiempo... we felt like fugitives who had found their hideaway... no one knew us & we didn't know anyone... that's how we wanted it... it was one beautiful memory after another... it should have been a crime, a felony even... but we got out and have been on the run ever since... we plan to return soon.... Shhhh.. don't tell anybody...”

“What a great day! We brought my mom to Back Nine Grill for her seventieth birthday. Everyone at Back Nine showered her with attention. She felt like a queen. It was so cute. The food was amazing. My mom said that it was the best food she’d ever tasted! We have such good memories of that party. Here is my mom with her great granddaughter at Back Nine. As you can see, she is overjoyed. Happy as can be. Feeling loved and special. We could not have created these amazing memories without Back Nine! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!”
