Property description

Slow down, catch your breath and relax in our comfortable, fully-appointed, BEACHFRONT townhouse. Your deck overlooks the wide, sandy beach and beautiful Pacific Ocean. You can walk for miles along the beach, watch the dolphins, whales, and other sea life from the comfort of your living room or private deck.

Small, private, townhouse complex; quiet and peaceful surroundings. If you love to listen to the sound of the surf as you fall asleep at night or enjoy a, uncrowded, semi-private beach, this is the place for you. And if you're looking for some social time, our home is Ideally located close to the restaurants, wineries and activities in Santa Cruz (15 minutes) or the history, shopping and boutique wineries of Carmel and Monterey (30 minutes).

King bed in master bedroom; two double beds in second bedroom. Both bedrooms feature very large windows with a fabulous view of the sandy beach and ocean waves. Blankets and pillows are provided; other linens available; please inquire. Kitchen offers a breakfast bar, microwave, espresso maker, dishwasher, all cooking amenities; two full baths. Your comfortable, casual living room features a chill-chasing Norwegian Jotul fireplace, flat screen cable TV with DVD, and stereo/MP3/CD player; wifi connection for your tablet or laptop. Upscale, soothing beach decor throughout.

Kick off your shoes, chill the drinks, and make this clean, cheerful, beach-themed cottage your home -- it feels more like home than the vanilla rentals you've stayed in before.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1972

About the owner: We have owned our beach house since 1972 after searching numerous vacation spots throughout California. We decided on Santa Cruz area largely because its proximity to Silicon Valley and the ease in getting there to start the weekend or vacation without a long, tedious drive. Also for travelers, it's only an hour's drive from San Jose or Monterey airports. It is only 5 minutes off scenic Highway 1 which runs along the Pacific Ocean from Mexico to Oregon.

Why the Owner Chose La Selva Beach:
We purchased this property to get many of the features we experienced in Hawaii, without the expense and hassle of long travel. We also wanted to be close to Carmel and Monterey. It's easy for us to manage, as well as vacation there, as we live in the redwoods 20 minutes away. Many of our guests have been renting from us for 10-20 years. A few have even decided to purchase there, and are now our neighbors! Near state parks, but very non-congested.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Our family-friendly home offers the unique experience of staying ON a natural sandy beach. Amazing views, the ability to walk out of your home and onto the beach (one minute) for a walk or run. Try your skills at surfing, boogie/skim boarding or surf-fishing. Or spread your blanket on the beach right in front of your home and watch sun light up the waves as they crash at your feet. In the evenings you can build a beach fire and share the day's adventures with your family and friends. If you prefer to lounge on the deck, you can watch the birds, whales, sea lions, otters, etc., from the comfort of your own private space. Linger a moment to watch the sunset, breathe the fresh ocean air, let the waves mesmerize you. Many families revisit our home each year to reconnect with themselves and their families. A rare experience indeed!
