Located at sea-level among giant cypress trees in a very tranquil oceanside setting. Rooftop Deck has a HOT TUB overlooking the beach and ocean. A two minute walk along a footpath along Moran Lagoon leads to beautiful Moran Beach (which can be followed up the coast for about a half mile).
Modern two-story, three bedroom, two and a half bath, colorful stucco beach house, with newly installed and refinished oak floors throughout the house, a freshly repainted interior and a large skylight in the main living area. Modern cleanline leather furniture. Original contemporary large oil paintings. Gourmet kitchen. This home is in great condition and has alot of natural light inside. The house is on a quiet, private street lined with old cypress trees. A very short walk along Lake Moran goes to the beach.

3 Week Stay in Lakeview
3 Week Stay in Lakeview
We are a family from Ireland with 3 teenage children. We rented this property for 3 weeks in July 2011. We were extremely happy with our stay. The description of the house was 100% accurate and our interaction with the owner was efficient and very professional. The location of the house is excellent, it is almost on the ocean and is conveniently located between Santa Cruz and Capitola. I would highly recommend this rental.

Great Location, comfortable home
Great Location, comfortable home
The home is as described, and turned out to be the perfect vacation house for us, a family with a toddler and a mother-in-law. The owner, whom we never met, was a great communicator via email. He also returned our deposit within a week and provided us with tons of different contacts in case anything went wrong or was not to our liking before we got there. We didn't have any problems but it was certainly a relief knowing we were taken care of. The house had lots of natural light, with fun art on display and modern decor. I sometimes wished there were blinds downstairs but felt the home was private enough not to really require it. And the beach was a super short walk and really family and surfer friendly.

A Great Beach Get-Away
A Great Beach Get-Away
Just what our family was looking for in a beach get-away. Located in a friendly, quiet neighborhood complete with a roof deck hot tub. And so close to the beach. The kids loved the very short, easy walk to the sandy beach. The parents loved sitting in the hot tub at night listening to the surf (so relaxing we found it hard to leave.) The house was impeccably clean, well kept and had everything we needed for our stay. We were also close to many of the the highlights of the Santa Cruz area. The owners made every part of our rental experience easy. We will definitely stay here again if/we travel to Santa Cruz.

We had our family from Europe stay at the home and were impressed by it's comfort and location. It is very spacious and the views from the master bedroom were magnificent, as were the views from the rooftop deck. We especially enjoyed the fireplace in the living room. The proximity to the beach allowed us to take frequent walks there. The rental process was convenient and easy. We look forward to having our guests stay at this home in the future.

The home is very elegant, with beautiful hardwood floors and original, collector-quality artwork thoughout the house, all painted by the owner. The home is very close to a beautiful beach, and the rental process was smooth and easy. I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing week in Santa Cruz. While the weather was cloudy and grey more often than not - the beach was wonderful. We loved walking and watching the pelicans. Thank you for your hospitality! Martha C. August 2004 (from house's guestbook)
