                  Park your car and start your vacation! The 'Seabright Cottage' has many amenities within walking distance. Walk to the corner and enjoy a latte, visit the local brewery, or have a meal at one of the best breakfast places in town. The Harbor, Walton Lighthouse, animal & sea life, and boat watching are within 2 blocks. The Seabright community is an attractive, friendly neighborhood, and we walk just down the block to famous Seabright Beach! Many state parks and beaches are within a short driving distance.

                  Plan time to walk to the local Natural History Museum, 2 blocks away. A full day is needed to spend at the Boardwalk, only 1 mile away.

                  Santa Cruz is a central hub-bub for the music scene, with an active night-life in the downtown area. Enjoy unique shopping and excellent dining in the center of town!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1971

                  About the owner: We originally built the 'Seabright Cottage' as a gathering place for extended family and friends. My parents bought the lot in 1971, and the (very small) shack built there was demolished to make way for the new house 30 years later. As a vacation rental, our visitors get the opportunity to enjoy the ocean, beach, great places to eat, parks, Harbor, etc. as much as we do. We visit frequently from our home in Truckee. Our kids love the transition from the mountains to the ocean environment, and spend countless hours at Seabright Beach, a 5 minute walk from our house, and down the steps to the beach. We love our friendly little neighborhood; the well maintained gardens are colorful and a joy to inspect on our daily walks to the beach! The Boardwalk is also within walking distance. We enjoy visiting Steamer's Lane (close to the Boardwalk), where all of the locals surf. Occasionally, we go Downtown to hear music, see a movie, go to the bookstore, or browse the many little shops. My husband is a General Contractor and keeps the Cottage in ship shape. Our good friend, Debbie, is our on-site Manager, and lives close by. I spend time in my home office year round working on the maintenance,upkeep, and rentals of Seabright Cottage. In addition, I spend winters as a ski instructor at Squaw Valley USA, and occasionally teach for Disabled Sports USA at Alpine Meadows ski area. I enjoy providing our tenants with a great place to stay in Santa Cruz.

                  Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
                  The Seabright Cottage is in a neighborhood of first home owners and locals. It is a well maintained, friendly, and safe area.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Nearby Restaurants include: La Cancun Taqueria, La Posta,Seabreeze Cafe, Betty's Burgers, Brady's Yacht Club, Seabright Brewery, Java Junction, Enfger Pizza, Drunk Monkey Market: Day's Market
