Santa Cruz, California
Travel & Hospitality

The Brief

That intimate, breath-of-fresh-air, California getaway is right at your fingertips—can you feel it? The founding husband-wife duo of this luxury Santa Cruz surf house sought to infuse the true history and skate/surf culture into their website copy, giving us the perfect opportunity to roll up our sleeves and get to work.

To Santa Cruz we went.

Story Arc

Our team had to see the property ourselves to really understand the magic of this place. From sharing the stories of how the property inherited a skate bowl, how each room was awarded a specifically chosen surf name, and describing what it’s like to sleep, eat and adventure there, this project brought us back to our travel writing days in the best possible way. 

A surf house with soul.

The Result

Our time at Manresa Surf House allowed us to share the rich history of this 1960s property, giving us the inspiration we needed to craft website copy with soul. Through our work together, we were able to provide copy that informed future creative assets, like videography and graphic design. The founders of this beautiful space now had the copy they needed to showcase their storied seaside retreat for adventure-seekers near and far.

A Deeply Creative Collaboration




In their writing, we could literally taste and smell the experiences through words. Because we had our copy done before we shot all of our media, it really gave us so much extra value by the time we shot everything…we will be referring Rachel to everyone needing copy work. I will say, we were blown away with her product and I think everyone who reads it will be blown away as well.
