              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1990

              About the owner: We love our beach house and are excited about sharing it with others. We hope they enjoy it as much as we have. We have been married for over 40 yrs. and have 3 married children and 7 grandchildren. Rick has been in the construction business for most of his life and I am an active real estate agent for Alain Pinel Realtors in Saratoga. We live in Los Gatos, a short trip over the hill from Santa Cruz.

              Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
              We bought this home many years ago as a rental for college students. We always hoped we would be able to rebuild it for ourselves in the future. It was a great dream come true when we completed the remodel three years ago.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              We love that we can walk everywhere from this home. The popular Twin Lakes beach is just a short block away. Bon fires light up the beach in the evening, sail boat races can be viewed from our deck, and lively beach volley ball games are a common occurrence. Don't miss the ukelele concert on Saturday mornings in front of the Kind Grind. There are excellent restaurants within walking distance. We especially enjoy the Crows Nest upstairs on Weds. night when the sail boat races are taking place. Johnnie's Harborside, the Kind Grind, El Palomar, and Nuevo Grill are also favorites of ours. Deke's market on 7th Ave. is a great place for sandwiches and various grocery sundries. There are public tennis courts and a great kids park a few minutes away on 7th Ave. We also enjoy walking and riding bikes on the harbor road where the sea otters, seals, and pelicans are always entertaining. The Santa Cruz Beach Board Walk is a 5-minute drive away with the famous wooden roller coaster and many other thrilling rides for all ages. A 18-hole minature golf course at the boardwalk is also a good way to spend an afternoon. Downtown Santa Cruz and Capitola nearby offer unique shopping opportunities, movie theaters, and other excellent restaurants.
