Property description

The Black Pearl Cottage / Winner of the California Coastal Home of the Year Award! And Featured on the Travel Channel’s “Great Vacation Homes” 5 NIGHT MINIMUM, ^ PERSON MAXIMUM.


Located on the sunny, northern point of Monterey Bay; just 70 miles south of San Fransisco; 30 miles west of San Jose; 35 miles from Monterey and 40 miles from Carmel. Nestled near the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor, it’s a scenic stroll to the Harbor, the Boardwalk and the Warf, yet separate from the crowded tourist areas.

You enter through an arched wooden door into a dramatic grand room with crashing surf views of the entire Monterey Bay. This grand room has an open layout that includes living room, dining area and kitchen with a 5 burner stainless stove, microwave and dishwasher. This unique setting overlooks a rare 5 star rated sandy beach known as Seabright beach. A magnificent operational riverstone fireplace creates a stunning ambiance for romantic evenings particularly on foggy nights or during winter storms. The rich velvet jewel tones lend a luxurious warmth to the rooms. Local original artwork from open studios tours, hang on the walls and create a special coastal feel.

Outside the Cottage

A deep Japanese style hot tub on the private patio allows for soothing and relaxing time. The incredibly beautiful, wild, semi native California gardens surround the cottage and offer a privacy screen for the oceanfront patio in the front yard where hummingbirds hover and feed at dusk and dawn.

Dining and activities

3-4 blocks walk to:

• Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor with Sailing and Whale Watching charters
• Free water taxi across the Harbor to the Crows Nest Restaurant and entertainment venue with ocean dining, live music and comedy shows

Inside the Cottage

From the living room and front patio, watch sea lions, sea otters, dolphins and in season, whales play right off the beach while listening to satellite radio.

A Master Bedroom/ bathroom with windows that look out onto the sea and allows to you to awaken to the sight and sound of the surf. The jewel tone furnishings wrap you in rich, luscious color. The King bed is “top of the line”. The Living room and Master suite has cable TV and DSL – wireless web connection.

Two additional bedrooms, one with a King the other a Queen, share the second bathroom and a washer/dryer allows you to go from beach to dinner as you wish.
