Santa Cruz house description
We completely remodeled our Beach Home in 2007 and have kept it in its original 1940's style. It has the original refinished hardwood floors and has a new kitchen and baths and double pane windows. We love the charm of this small home and guest cottage and best of all its location on a quiet street 8 homes back from the stairs that take you down to the sand and Monterey Bay.
Our Home has two bedrooms in the house with a Queen Bed in the Master bedroom and bunk beds in the other bedroom. Both bedrooms have doors out to the backyard and deck which is especially nice to access the morning sun or the bar-be-que in the later afternoon. This back area is completely fenced for safety and privacy. There is one bath in the main house which has a tub/shower combination.
Our Guest cottage in the backyard has two twin beds and a bath with a shower and a sitting area. It is especially nice if you have older children that would like to sleep in the Guest Cottage and stay up later than you might like.
There is also a washer/dryer on the premises and two parking passes that are needed during our peak season. There is also a hot/cold outdoor shower in the backyard after your day at the Beach.

Rented this beach house in September and our stay could not have been better! Literally 5 houses away from the beach with stair access and loved every minute of it. The owner Claudia is very helpful, kind and made us feel right at home. The house is extremely comfortable and perfect. Great for families with children or a girls or couples getaway. Very accommodating while being So close to beach, beachfront cafes and restaurants, the harbor with fun activities, Boardwalk and Wharf, and downtown SC and Capitola! HIGHLY recommended and will be back very soon for a longer stay with my family!

We stayed here back in July and it couldn't have been better! Walking distance from a great beach and a perfect place to enjoy the Wharf to Wharf race. As someone born and raised in Santa Cruz, this was an ideal location to call home while visiting my home town.

About the owner: Both of us are blessed to have grown up here in Santa Cruz and now have had the opportunity to raise our children in this beautiful community. It is wonderful to continue to share this special Santa Cruz Beach location with our family and friends and guests.
Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
This location is the best on a quiet street just eight homes back from the Stairs leading to the Sand and Monterey Bay and tucked between the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor and Twin Lakes Beach and Black Point. This location is quiet and away from the busy crowds so you can relax, breathe and rejuvenate! It is a close drive or bike ride to downtown Santa Cruz, the Boardwalk and Capitola.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a great home to come to relax and rejuvenate. You can smell the ocean breeze and hear the seagulls, seals and waves breaking on the sand. You are eight homes back from the end of the street where the stairway takes you to the private end of Twin Lakes Beach between the Yacht Harbor and Black Point. You are a close walk to The Yacht Harbor, restaurants, coffee shops, a farmer's market on Sundays. You can ride your bike or walk most anywhere from the property. The Boardwalk, Downtown Santa Cruz and Capitola are all a short drive away. Our Home has a Queen Bed in one bedroom and bunk beds in the other bedroom. There is a Bath with a shower/tub combination in the house. The Guest Cottage in the backyard has two twin beds and a bath with a shower and a separate sitting area. The kitchen has a small sitting area for two people and the dining area can seat 4 to 6 people. There is a hot/cold outdoor shower in the backyard after your day at the Beach. There is also a bar-be-que and outdoor seating for relaxing in the backyard right off the bedrooms and a deck off the front of the house for sitting and enjoying the view and smell of the ocean. Boogie Boards are on site. This is a great home for a retreat for a couple or a vacation for a family. All ages love our home.
