Property description

Peace, Harmony and Tranquility
Top Side is classical but with a cutting edge...Located in the picturesque Seabright area of Santa Cruz with head-on view of Monterey Bay and the Yacht Harbor is an elegant-one-bedroom, one-bath pied-a-terre. This distinctive retreat is a unique sanctuary that offers the discriminating individual or couple a sophisticated haven on the shores of the Pacific.

It is fully furnished and you will find everthing you need for a relaxing getaway. Well equipped kitchen, quality linens, fireplace, cable, wireless internet and workstation, exterior patio with BBQ, washer/dryer, garage and even outside shower to rinse the sand off your feet.

Just steps from Seabright Beach (also known as Castle Beach) voted #1 by the locals, and rated five star beach in National Publication. This wide strand of beautiful soft sand is perfect for beachcombing, jogging, body surfing, vollyball, evening bonfires or viewing incredible sunsets.

Stroll to the yacht harbor for kayaking, windsurfing or fishing off the jetty by the lighthouse. Want to feel like a kid again...cross the trestle to the Boardwalk and ride the Roller Coaster and indulge in a Cotton Candy.

Seabright itself is known for its restaurants, cafes and coffee houses all nestled among the beach bungalows and all within easy walking distance.

Top Side is located in a quiet neighborhood yet is a perfect getaway for all Santa Cruz has to offer- world class surfing, sailing, kayaking, wind surfing, fishing cycling, golf, premium wine tasting and breweries or hiking among the redwoods.

Want a short day trip...Monterey/Carmel is only 45 mins. away with the infamous Cannery Row, Monterey Bay Aquarium and Pebble Beach Golf Course. There are also many fine vineyards throughout Santa Cruz, Monterey and San Benito Counties to explore and enjoy.
