Outdated and Low Quality
Outdated and Low Quality
The upside: This house is a place to sleep that's close to the beach. The downside: There is a large deposit, so we expected the place to be immaculate. We were sorely disappointed. The photos make it look a lot nicer than it is. Everything in the house is outdated. It feels like you're sleeping in a house that was decorated in the early 90's. The pillows are lumpy, the sheets are torn and old, and the furniture looks like I mishmash of objects purchased at a garage sale. The bottom floor shower has a faucet that you have to literally "rip" out of the wall to turn on. We thought we would break it! The worst part is the bathtub does not drain!! Showering ankle deep in water is gross. The towels are extremely low quality, rough, old, fraying and mismatched. There are no amenities - we had to drive to the store after we realized there was no soap! The drawers in the kitchen are unorganized and full of junk and trash. We decided to eat out for a better experience. If you are in a bind and need a place to sleep - this place will do.

Manager response: Future guests, In checking the home after the tenant's 2 day stay, this is clearly a malicious defense mechanism. Security deposits are normal in the event of damage and are refundable. The photos speak for them selves. (Actually there are even a couple new TV's). The couches, all beds, TV, DVD, small appliances, large glass dining table are all 2 years old or brand new. Larger appliances are stainless steel and in perfect condition. Pillows: ridiculous comment- there are a ton of new pillows- 4 extra pillows in each closet downstairs to chose from, from down to synthetic, king to standard, the Master has about 6 extra pillows! Sheets are not old, they are either brand new or 2 years old at the most. Every sheet was inspected and found a small snag in the corner of one about a half inch long & replaced it. Towels are all from Costco either brand new or 2 years old and not low quality, nor fraying. We found 1 hand towel that has intentional fraying on edges that belonged in the kitchen. Shower handle referred to has a note to pull out before turning to operate. We found sand and hair at the drain which obviously slows the release of water and was just fine when removed. Should this have been a "real" plumbing issue, we have a plumber we send to beach homes immediately to rectify. The home is full of amenities and as far as the soap, there was 2 liquid soaps in each bathroom on the counter and bar soap was in the drawer of each bathroom! Laundry, dish and dish detergent are all supplied, as well as, tp, and paper towels, condiments etc. Drawers in the kitchen are extensive: one area on the side has 1 "junk" drawer with pens, batteries, light bulbs and such for the home, the one under that has paper & plastic bags, and the next one has operating manuals for the appliances. All other drawers have all you need for your stay and they are organized. I believe due to the items left at the home, the tenant attended wedding activities while in town for 2 days. Thank you and I hope this helps explain this unfounded review that sits out of place with all others.
We had a beautifull time ocean view with a very short walk to beach! Nice store with great breakfast and lunch too risers away! Pleasure point is the spot to be:). We are goin to miss this home!

The house was really close to the water, the view from the rooftop was nice and the 2nd floor had a nice patio for grilling and relaxing. Everything was working properly; grill, jacuzzi in the master bedroom, tv's & appliances. There is only 2 parking spots on the driveway, but there was a lot of parking nearby. The market right next to the house was also very convenient to walk to when we needed more paper towels and snacks. I would come back to this house in the future.

We stayed here during a Holiday and it was just perfect! The home has a reverse floor plan with multiple sky lights so it is very enchanting. There is 2 dining areas and the kitchen and family room are all open, great place to gather and visit. The bedrooms are very large and the Master Suite is huge, home is very well maintained and has a nice grassy yard as well. We had a nice BBQ area with an ocean view! The beach is nearby, about 2 min walk and the ocean is even closer the other way. We took long walks along the water towards Pleasure Point, enjoyed the local coffee shop near the home and went surfing, boogie boarding, and bike riding! Tara was always helpful in recommendations for us!

Great House, Great Location, Great Experience

We stayed here mid October for a weekend. Comparing the price, size and quality of this place to other rental houses in Santa Cruz, this house is really unbeatable! The master bedroom is enormous and has a large jacuzzi and a huge shower and sink area. The kitchen is well furnished, the bedrooms are spacious and there are multiple TVs throughout the house. There's even a PA system! The final plus, a spiral staircase going to the very top of the roof that you can see the ocean from. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a rental in Santa Cruz!

This house has a really homey feel and it's fully equipped. The kitchen has everything and it's really amazing for someone who prefers to cook during vacation (like us). The house was really neat and clean and there is ample space for group activities and to sleep. It has great proximity to the beach and a lot of shops around the area. Tara was really sweet and flexible and provided great service. Thank you for making our vacation as amazing as ever.
