Santa Cruz house description

Planning a family reunion? Or a corporate retreat? You've found the perfect house. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms PLUS two private hot outdoor showers make this the best place to stay for larger family groups. It works great for corporate retreats too!

This large sunny house is the perfect location for a Santa Cruz getaway. Located on a quiet residential street in an exclusive neighborhood, it is just five hundred feet to Sunny Cove beach, known by locals for boogie boarding and skim boarding. The Monterey peninsula and it's twinkling lights are visible across the bay from the family room and spacious deck. The house is walking distance to coffee, market, restaurants, a fantastic farmer's market and the harbor, and easy biking distance to the Boardwalk or Capitola. Golf, wine tasting, yoga, rock climbing, kayaking, paddle-boarding and sailing are available nearby.

Not only does our house have location, location, location, there is plenty of room with nearly 5,000 square feet of living space. It is the perfect vacation house to share with another family (or two). There are three rooms with queen beds (one with an ocean view), one room with a king bed, a small room with a bunk bed, and a very large room that sleeps 6 in bunk beds. There is an upstairs family room with fireplace and ocean view, and another family room downstairs with fireplace and TV. There is also a game room with a bar.

The backyard has a large concrete play area with basketball court which is also great for roller hockey or skateboarding. Balconies from the bedrooms allow for great views of sunsets.

                  Besides the Boardwalk and the usual tourist stuff, there's a lot going on in the neighborhood. Rent bikes, take surfing lessons, go kayaking or try paddle boarding, all nearby. Our beach is one of the few that allows fires! Have a bonfire or roast marshmallows. Take a cruise on the Chardonnay II, a 70-foot sailing yacht that departs from the harbor, a short drive away. Watch Wednesday Night boat races or check out the Thursday Night Beach BBQ at the Crow's Nest (summer only).

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We are a family of five with three boys who live, work, and go to school only 45 minutes away from Santa Cruz. Our boys have grown up spending their favorite times at this house.

                  Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
                  We like the neighborhood feel of Sunny Cove beach and the proximity to other beaches for walking, skim boarding, boogie boarding and surfing. Most everywhere you want to go from here is a walk, bike ride or short drive away.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  With a unique layout of private quiet spaces and gathering areas, our home is absolutely perfect for a large family, a family reunion, or a working retreat. Nothing can beat the view of the ocean from the deck. If you're lucky and there is no fog, the lights of Monterey twinkle across the Bay. It's magical.
