About the owner: My husband and I both grew up along the coast of Southern California and we both love everything that a quaint beach town has to offer. As soon as we found the SEABRIGHT beach area, we fell in love.. It is so bright and sunny, and we just loved the fresh air, the sound of the crashing ocean waves, the casual attitude, the friendly environment, and the vacation like feel. With the beach just a few steps away, the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, many restaurants, and the harbor, all within such a short walking distance, it seemed like a perfect place for our family to build many, delightful and fantastic memories. So far it has been a perfect vacation place for us and such a great location and we hope you and your family enjoy this house and it's location as much as we have!
Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz: We chose to buy a house in the Seabright area because it is one of the nicest, sunniest areas in Santa Cruz. This little town is very well cared for and has such cute Victorian beach cottage homes. The beach has bathrooms and showers and a little ice cream stand and there are also lifeguard stations all along the beach making it a very safe and family friendly beach. Seabright beach also allows bonfires in the evening and this makes the beach a unique place. Also what made this location ideal for us is that the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk is only a short walking distance from the house as well as numerous restaurants and the harbor. There are lots of beautiful trails and walks from the house along the ocean front and the neighborhood is very friendly.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The location of this house is ideal! It is nicely situated between both the boardwalk and the harbor. The beach entrance is right at the bottom of our street, the boardwalk and the harbor are both only about a 5 minute walk away,. So, you have the beach, the harbor, AND an amusement area so close! It is such a special place and nested within a nice, clean and quiet neighborhood. The beach at the bottom of the street is a special beach. It is never a crowded or busy area because of where we are situated. Another thing that makes this particular area special is that Seabright beach allows bonfires at night. It is a special and neat experience to walk right down, to the beach, have a nice bonfire, roast hot dogs, or smores and chat with family and/or friends and then walk right home.
Another fun thing to do is to walk along the ocean front as you make your way to the harbor. Aldo's is a great restaraunt on the harbor to eat and/or have drinks and enjoy the beautiful scenery while watching the boats sailing in and out of the harbor. There are seals and pelicans and you can even take a walk all the way out to the lighthouse or rent boats or kayaks if you are feeling adventurous.
A museum is also at the bottom of the street with a large whale out front that is as fun spot for kids to climb and play.
One of our favorite things to do when we are there is to wake up, sit on the deck and to listen for the ocean. Then, go for nice little walk to a local coffee shop with our children. We grab coffee and breakfast and then head down to the beach. With our eldest son on his bike, and youngest in the wagon, we head over to the harbor and let the kids run down to the light house. As we make our way back we head to the beach, the kids romp and play in the sand and waves and we head back to the house for lunch. We end our day roasting hot dogs and marshmallows with a bonfire on the beach or a barbeque on the deck upstairs!
