La Selva Beach townhome description

La Selva Beach Townhome Tennis-Pool-Hot-Tub Private 3 Bedroom, 2.5 bath (1,846 sq. feet) with a large wrap around deck and ocean views. Tastefully furnished and cozy relax in front of the wood burning fireplace.

This vacation getaway has been in our family for 21 years. All the kids have grown up and now the parents want to travel. Our townhome is situated on a bluff above Sand Dollar Beach in the relaxed neighborhood of Canon del Sol approximately 12 miles south of Santa Cruz, California. Beach access via a private trail and stairs through the native coastal landscape is a short 5 minute walk from our front door. If you happen to bring Grand-parents or need a more accessible route, you can access the beach through Manresa State Park right next door. Either way, you and your family are minutes from the amazing Pacific Ocean.

Leave your stress behind! At our home you will enjoy fresh air and ocean views while lounging on the deck. You will have the opportunity to observe both the marine and land wildlife, including singing birds, playful dolphins and majestic whales during their migration. Additional amenities include a gated pool and hot tub, tennis and basketball courts as well as the endless beach – great for the young and the young at heart. This unique area of the California coastline allows for miles of unobstructed access – both north and south. Whether you leisurely stroll or vigorously jog along the sands - sunrise to sunset, the beach is your playground. In addition, there is great hiking for all ages at Manresa State Park next door and kayaking at Moss Landing as short drive away. The little town of La Selva Beach is a five minute drive and the KOA campground is a 10 minute walk if you can’t live without a morning newspaper.

Our home is clean, comfortable and a place you can unwind. We have a new stove, a new refriderator, gas BBQ and all the kitchen supplies you need; cable TV and a stereo in the common areas, and WI-FI throughout. Our two-story townhome sleeps eight and includes an upstairs master bedroom with a new king bed and brand new curtains and comfortable bath, two closets, deck access and wonderful views of the State Park. Downstairs are two bedrooms, one with a new queen bed and the second with two twin beds and a trundle. (roll-a-way is also available) The first story also has a washer and dryer, full bathroom (new toliet) and access to the two car garage. We have lots of sand toys, new tennis rackets and balls and ping-pong gear!

Make your next getaway effortless with memories to last a lifetime!
Sorry no pets allowed at this home.

                                Overall our stay was very good. The description and pictures were a very accurate depiction of what to expect meaning we were as comfortable as planned. The views, walk to the beach and the pool and hot tub were very nice. However, given that we pay extra for the cleaning I would have expected that to be better. While everything was generally very clean a few things should have been better. We needed to finish drying and folding towels left in the washer and dryer, had to hunt for TP that ran out in one bathroom and the kitchen waste receptacle was very dirty and should be cleaned between every rental. But as said it was mostly very nice and would rent here again. But the owner should demand better from the cleaning service.

                                We enjoyed our stay very much at the townhouse in La Selva Beach ! It was very relaxing. The pool/spa was very nice and clean. The pool temperature was perfect. The townhouse was very comfortable and well stocked. The beach was nice . Wish we had better weather, but you can't control the fog.

                                We rented this townhouse for seven friends to share during a class reunion. It met and exceeded our expectations. The furnishings, although somewhat dated, were clean and comfortable. The unit was roomy with an adequate kitchen, dining, and living area. The deck was large and had a view of the ocean. The beach was a short five minute walk away. Only one person used the pool and said it was nice. The only recommendation I would have is to post a small framed map of the development showing where the beach access is and how to get to the pool. The other recommendation would be to add a few more towels and washcloths. We are already talking about renting this place again next year for another get-together.

                                Owner response: Ursula, We are so pleased to know you had a great time at the home. Thank you for the map idea. It is much easier to find the stairs when you have a map. We are updating a bit this month, adding more washcloths will be on the list (funny, they disappear regularly). Of course we would love for your group to return. We had a report from the housekeeper and she said the home was left in great shape. Thank you! Kristin

                                Nice property with great ocean view. Enjoyed the amenities like being able to walk (3-4 minutes) to the beach, ping-pong (in garage), and hot tub (still open during our stay). The place is well kept - clean and well stocked with what you'd need/expect. If you're looking for a place to "unplug" - away from the hustle and bustle of city life, this is a great place! But if you absolutely must go shopping or do something, there are plenty of places that are not far to drive to. My family (husband plus 2 kids - 12 & 14) enjoyed the stay. I'd recommend it to others!

                                We stayed here for about 10 days. We are a married couple with two young kids. This is a great relaxing location. The subdivision is quiet and well maintained. There is walking access (stairs) to Manresa State Beach and State Park. The beach has great surfing, fire pits and nearby is sand dollar beach for shelling. It is a little more remote location but it is an easy drive to food and fun. The pool and tennis court are well maintained. The townhouse has two bedrooms and a laundry downstairs. Upstairs in a master suite, powder room, living, kitchen and dining. There is plenty of bedding and kitchenware. We liked this location so much we discussed buying a home here. I would definitely recommend this place and I would love to return.

                                This beach house was amazing. Its a 5 minute walk to the beach and access to the pool was nice! The owners of this house keep it very clean and beautiful. We stayed for 5 days and I wanna go back! I would refer this house to anyone and hope we are able to go back someday.

                                I just want to say that this place was great... easy to find. I had to stay in Le Selva Beach for a wedding. I was really happy with the condition of the rental, decorated really nice and very very clean. The listing description was very accurate, the pictures were exactly just how it looked. I really wish I could have spent more time there. One thing I would recommend is that you bring your food with you because there is only one market in Le Selva Beach...kinda expensive. I would recommend this property to anyone that was planning a trip.

                                This was an awesome place to stay at La Selva Beach. We had a family of 6 and fit perfectly. The house was clean, neat, had all the amenities we needed and wanted. The views were spectacular and the quick walk to the beach was a real treat. The owners obviously have cared for the place well and were very conscientious to make it homey for us. The photos are accurate, but don't really do it justice. The home was way nicer than I expected. We left something behind and the owner was kind enough to mail it back to us. With the beach nearby and so many great attractions like Santa Cruz and Monterey, this is an ideal vacation spot for anyone. I highly recommend it!!!

                                This townhouse is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a quiet, comfortable, and the perfect spot to have fun in the sun without the crowds, any time of the year. I have been here in the summer and the fall, it was perfect weather each time. The fall and winter months are usually the clearest skies with less coastal fog, so a good place for the holidays. It is convenient if you are only two people for a romantic getaway and also large enough to hold a family of 7. It is nestled in a quiet neighborhood, no traffic noises. Watching sunset on the large deck with a glass of wine from any of the nearby wineries of the Santa Cruz Mountains and Monterey area is what I really enjoyed each night. The beach is a short five-minute walk, which is convenient as they have a private trail that leads to the public beach. This is a great beach for joggers and surfers. It is never crowded, but does have a lifeguard on duty. Monterey is also a short distance away, if you want to plan a day at the famous Aquarium, or sightseeing in Carmel. Not to mention Santa Cruz boardwalk which is minutes away. If you are a gourmet cook you will not be disappointed as this kitchen comes with everything the owner describes. The gas grill on the deck is sufficient for no mess grilling. The nearby gourmet market has terrific food for take-out and deli as well as fantastic fresh meats & fish. There are a number of good restaurants nearby too. You will find this place a winner!

                                Owner response: Thanks you Stella for your nice review- It was a pleasure dealing with your delightful family and i am happy you all had a great time. I so happy you liked Deluxe market! It is my favorite as well. I send everyone over there! KHH

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 1987

                              About the owner: We treat our home with alot of love as we have raised 3 children coming here for vacations and long week-ends since 1988 when we purchased it. I still love to come and relax on the deck after I walk to the KOA for my morning paper and brew a big pot of coffee and listen to all the birds ! It is so peaceful here-

                              Why the Owner Chose La Selva Beach:
                              We wanted to buy a townhome that had no outside upkeep and had tennis, pool and hot tub for our children. We wanted to be near the beach with an ocean view. We wanted it in a rural location not in Santa Cruz with all the congestion and traffic-This home is very quiet and one can sit on the deck and hear the birds sing!

                              The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                              My Husband is a jogger ---He loves the fact you can go 9 miles in either direction. I love walking. We love going to Moss Landing and Monterey. My Son loves surfing at Manresa Beach! My girls used to love the Hot Tub and hanging out by the pool.
