Santa Cruz house description

Sunny Cove Retreat was built in 1957 for the sister of Lloyd Bridges (the actor) and has had only a few owners since then. I have been upgrading the older appliances, while trying to keep the "look" of the American 1950s.

This is an OCEANFRONT, BEACHFRONT house. The house is located across the street from the beach, with a spectacular view of the water, crashing waves, and beautiful Sunny Cove Beach.

Amenities include a giant kitchen, fireplace, hot tub, pool table, 9 beds and many couches and parking for 9 cars.

The house is large. This house is set up as a great space for lots of people to enjoy together - including bunk beds in the play room.

The house has plenty of indoor entertainment, including a TV, DVD, spare laptop with wireless Internet access, plenty of beach equipment, extra blankets, towels, etc. The house has a basketball hoop, full sized pool table, many board games, and toys for kids.
