Property description

This is the place you've been looking for, kid friendly, close to the beach, short walk to Steamer Lane, Lighthouse Field and the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Listen to the sea lions bark and waves crash against the shore. Walk to restaurants at the Dream Inn and on the Santa Cruz wharf, or stay in and enjoy cooking in the gourmet kitchen. Plenty of space to stretch out and relax and enjoy the beach lifestyle.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: My wife Jen and I are both working professionals, and parents of a beautiful little girl Sophie who is the light of our lives. Shortly after her birth, we closed on this property and feel truly blessed to be able to raise a family in such a wonderful environment. When a friend of ours saw the house she said 'oh, you have a frog', and we looked at her with a puzzled expression and asked her to explain. 'A frog, you know a Finished Room Over the Garage' The name stuck and we've also added the alternative meaning of 'Friends, Relatives and Other Guests'

Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
We have been looking for a home with a guest house for a number of years, and this property truly exceeded all of our expectations. The guest house, 117 Lighthouse Ave is a luxury, 800 square foot apartment above the detached 3 car garage. There is a smaller room complete with bunk beds that is perfect for kids.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
117 Lighthouse Avenue was built in 2008 and has 800 square feet of living space. The home is built over a detached, oversized three car garage and has views of the Eucalyptus groves in Lighthouse Field. The guest house shares a 1/4 acre lot with the owner's residence and has a wonderful sense of privacy and serenity.
