              Santa Cruz beach home- incredible location! 07/21/2008

              VRBO Bear stayed here:

              This brand new, custom designed Craftsman home was built by the owners themselves! It stands out as the nicest, most luxurious home on the block! I arrived to a beautiful bouquet of fresh cut flowers, a bottle of California wine and a block of Italian truffle cheese!

              The 8 foot tall French doors with glass throughout add to the sheer beauty of this beach home. No detail was overlooked and this home has it all, from dimmer switch lighting to radiant heated flooring to intricate tile and slate designs. The beds and bedding are so elegant and comfortable that I wanted to bring them home with me.

              Outside there were multiple slate patios to choose from to enjoy the great views of the Marina and the Harbor. The gardens and landscaping make you feel like you are staying in a tropical resort. This home has everything you could possibly need for the perfect vacation.

              The location of this Santa Cruz beach home is second to none! You are literally two blocks from the Beach Harbor, the Santa Cruz Light House and one of the best restaurants in town - The Crow’s Nest. Within 10 minutes of the home you will find the Beach Boardwalk (an amusement park on the water), Downtown Santa Cruz with great shopping, amazing surfing, plenty of great restaurants and more! If you want to experience the majesty of the California Redwoods, you are only 20 minutes away! This the perfect home to experience Santa Cruz at its finest.
