                    It's no surprise that once again, we thoroughly enjoyed each and every day at beautiful Cypress Cottage! We just ended our third stay there, and each time we so appreciate the breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, the meticulously-maintained cottage (nice job on the new furniture!), the owner's wonderful original artwork, her welcoming attitude (even wine!), and the fact that our critters could join us (the fenced yard, and the spectacular wide flat “undiscovered” beach below make it doggie heaven)! It’s perfect for us, especially given our deep roots in the Pajaro Valley. ...’til next time!

                    Owner response: Dear Kathy and Peter, Thank you so very much for writing this wonderful review. We valued your feedback and we are happy that you enjoyed our cottage. My husband and I do our best to keep the cottage up to date and in fine condition. We look forward to your return soon. Warm regards, Rebeca

                    This was our second time to this wonderful cottage next to the sea. Listening to the waves at night, watching wildlife and sunsets from the windows or the deck, and the quick beach access are some of the main reasons why we love this cozy house. We feel at home and my boys 8 & 11 never want to leave. The house is very clean and organized and the owner is very easy to work with. We have and will recommend to our friends and family. If you are looking for a vacation home that you can go to the grocery store first and then never move your car again until you leave, then this is the place for you. If you want to go to Monterey/Carmel or Santa Cruz for the day, then it is also the place for you. This is a fabulous place to go to when you want a break from your busy life and want to hang out with your family.

                    Owner response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write the review. For me it is always a joy to hear how the guests like the cottage specially when they return and have a nice and restful stay. I enjoy the long walks along the sandy beach and watching the dolphins crossing from Monterrey to Santa Cruz every day is a very special sight. Thank you! Rebeca

                    We have had several weekend getaways at Cypress Cottage over the past few years and plan to return again - it has been for us a tranquil retreat when our lives gets too hectic. The cottage is cosy, well kept, and well appointed with amenities. The location is dramatic - on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and so the views from the big windows are fabulous - especially at sunset. My family greatly enjoyed the beach, easily accessible via a short path. We never expected the luxury of having a superb, long beach, pretty much to ourselves, so close to the Bay Area. There's always something to do for everyone, from kids to grandparents, and even our pet parrots. The water's a bit cold ofcourse, but my 6 yr old daughter never seemed to notice. If you enjoy bird watching, you get to see a lot of pelicans, gulls and shorebirds. And maybe dolphins and whales, if you're lucky. The owners (Stanton family) are very welcoming and well organized, and reservations are a breeze. The location is very convenient for driving down from the Bay Area, and a good base for fun activities in the Santa Cruz, and/or Monterey area. A great place to visit, and good value too.

                    Owner response: Thank you so very much for the wonderful review in the website. I know it takes time to write and want to thank you so very much for doing this. It is a very creative narrative and I love it. No one had talked about the sea life like the birds you see while at Sunset Beach by the cottage. I have always been amazed at the many kind of birds you see at the beach and the formations they make when flying. I look forward to your return again. Thank you!

                    My fiance and I and our corgi spent a lovely three nights at Cypress Cottage just before the 4th of July weekend. I highly recommend the house--the pictures do NOT do it justice at all. The home was very clean and quiet. We were planning on doing some kayaking, but I hurt my ankle while running on the beach, and was pretty much housebound for half of our stay. But what a terrific place to be stuck! I read an entire book, and every night watched the day turn into night, with no outside entertainment (i.e., TV--although it was readily available). I have told several people about our wonderful stay, and I'm certain they will follow up. It was such a treat to find a clean, homey place to bring my dog, and to simply relax. Oh, also--a Great Horned Owl appeared nightly about 5:30pm and hung out in the tree off the deck--just about ten feet away from us. Very cool! The owners provided binoculars so we were able to see him up close. Great place to relax, with lots of activities nearby.

                    Owner response: Hi Lee and Loni, It has been a pleasure to have you as our guests this summer. I am happy that you enjoyed your stay and will tell your friends about our beautiful cottage at Sunset Beach. Thank you so very much for the wonderful review and I look forward to your return.

                    We were so sad to leave after another wonderful stay at Cypress Cottage. It has the most gorgeous sunsets, beautiful walks that take you from beach to pristine farmland, through bluffs of trees and wildlife galore. We've also never enjoyed so much sea life as we have staying here. We were especially thrilled to watch a pod of orcas swimming along the beach this time. But, the real secret about staying here is how comfortable and "at home" you will be and so it will be very hard to leave. That is our special secret to share about this lovely place.

                    I have been coming to Cypress Cottage for many years & it will continue to be my favorite...home away from home! The sense of complete relaxation from the lovely decorated home & beautiful vibrant art to the vast sweeping unobstructed ocean views (hard to beat) makes this home one of a kind. The sunsets are magnificent & can be enjoyed while sitting on the deck. The beach feels like your own private beach and access could not be more convenient. While though you feel far from everyday life while enjoying the beauty and all the home has to offer (amenities are many!) you are still centrally located to take in activities of your choice. Oh and did I mention the owners make make the reservation process effortless! Enjoy your stay! Donna

                    We have stayed at Cypress Cottage twice in the last 3 months; and, we plan to stay several times more this year. The inside of the cottage is well-kept, attractive, and provides a warm, cozy feeling--it is very clear that the owners take pride in their property. The views are awesome. You can enjoy the views from inside the house looking out the front windows, sit on the front deck, or walk the path direct to the beach. The cottage is located in a lovely neighborhood with friendly neighbors. We brought our two dogs who loved laying in the sun in the side yard or on the front deck with us. I highly recommend Cypress Cottage.

                    Owner response: Dear Tony and Mary, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It describes perfectly our cottage and I know that it will help other travelers. I am happy that you enjoyed the sandy beach, the beautiful views and the neighborhood. My husband and I tried our best to keep the house comfortable for our guests. We look forward to having return as we have other families return year after year.

                    Walking into this home was such a pleasant surprise. Not only was it warm and inviting, this home has a "Touch of Class" that we have not experienced in the rentals in the area before. The beautiful artwork, high quality linens, warm pot belly stove, breakfast overlooking the ocean, a balcony that you can enjoy colorful sunsets and the evening stars.....absolutely perfect. We had a such a wonderful time at Cypress Cottage....Thanks so much to the Stanton's for sharing their "Jewel" with us. P.S. Pee Wee and Peanut loved basking in the sun safe and secure in your gated patio area. Two paws up from the girls!

It is located with easy access to Santa Cruz or the Monterey/ Carmel area. The beach is clean and never crowded. The home is charming with gorgeous colorful art work through out. The comfort and appeal of this home makes you want to never leave and definitely return as soon as possible!

                    We had an absolutely fabulous time staying at your cottage. Everything was exactly as you described and, I hope that we have the opportunity to stay at Cypress Cottage again. Thank you especially for getting the repair people in so quickly to fix the gas fireplace. The ability to sit before a warm toasty fire watching the ocean made the stormy days delightful. Indeed, we were so comfortable reading and playing games by the fire that we had a hard time prying ourselves away to walk on the beach!

                  Year Purchased: 1997

                  About the owner: My husband and I have been coming to Sunset Beach since 1976. For several years we went camping with our two children at the Sunset Beach State Park and our dream was to own a home in this beautiful area. In 1997 we were fortunate to buy this cottage which is inside the State Park, and our dream came true. We are both retired educators and now we reside in Los Altos Hills. We hope you have a memorable time and a wonderful vacation and find our home comfortable.

                  Why the Owner Chose Watsonville:
                  We chose to buy the cottage in this location because of the magnificent ocean views and the quiet sandy beach. You can walk for miles in each direction and enjoy the ocean breeze and the many kinds of birds.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Cypress Cottage is within easy driving to Carmel, Monterey and Santa Cruz. It is 40 miles to San Jose and the Silicon Valley.
