Year Purchased: 2001
About: We are a retired couple who live in Santa Clara Valley. We enjoy our 15 grandchildren as often as possible, but keep busy with many activities including traveling, baking too much, and church ministries. We are enjoying life!
Why Santa Cruz: We used to rent in Santa Cruz to be close to the ocean, but had an opportunity to purchase this home. It is a perfect location for families, friends, seminars, girl's weekends to 'hang out'. It's close to grocery shopping, mall shopping and Gayle's Bakery in Capitola.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our favorite thing to do when we come to our beach home is nothing. We go to the Crows Nest and coffee cafe to listen to the ukelele group on Saturdays and get plenty of rest on the purple sofa! Putting puzzles together, walking the beach and playing games is a favorite. The yacht harbor provides lots of entertainment: volleyball tournaments, watching boats, paddles surfers, kayakers coming in and out - always something new to see. The home itself has peaceful pastel colors, plenty of room for entertaining, great for napping or 'hanging out' with family and friends. Everyone who stays here leaves a note that they 'love' this house!
