Betty's on the Beach is exactly that. Just 20 feet from Rio Del Mar Beach, this beautiful, well maintained family home is right on one of the longest and most stunning beaches in California.
Whether you like surfing, walking for miles or just sitting on the deck watching the dolphins and pelicans, Betty's has it all. The view extends from Pleasure Point (Santa Cruz) to Moss Landing.
A beautiful private back yard, with small pool, ponds and waterfall, provides a quiet spot for a BBQ or sit out on the top deck for a spectacular view of the Pacific.
Our fully equipped galley kitchen, with separate pantry area, is perfect for those who love to cook. It would even meet with Anthony Bourdain's approval with No Reservations.
The extra large living room and separate dining room overlook the beach and a spiral staircase leads to the bedrooms, master bath and upstairs deck.
Our spacious master bedroom has a queen bed and walk in closet. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds along with a separate sitting area that includes a comfortable sofa bed right off the top deck.
Winter is coming and easily is the most spectacular time at beautiful Rio Del Mar beach. Quiet week days with just the dolphins, seals and shore birds to keep you company and you get the beach to yourselves. It's a great time to get out and explore and see mother nature at it's best. Sometimes wet and wild other days warm and beautiful. After a day on the beach you can watch the sun set from the deck then curl up in front of the fire with a glass of wine.
Boogie boards and skim boards provided. Some of the best beach volleyball courts in the area are just a few feet away.
We are now accepting Summer 2015 reservations and have many returning families and we will again be booked by early Spring. Many thanks to all our returning guests.
We are now offering our Winter Special...rent 4 nights and get the 5th night free. Does not apply to Holiday weekends.
Due to the high volume of requests (thanks VRBO!) please allow a day or two for us to respond.

Googlemap street view gives a great panoramic view up and down the beach. Photo was taken before we finished front remodel and painting!!
