Santa Cruz cottage description

Charming and sunny cottage one block from Santa Cruz's best beach. Lovely 5 minute walk from our quiet street to the Yacht Harbor and its many waterview restaurants and activities.

Experience all that Santa Cruz has to offer in this cheerful, spacious and relaxing updated Craftsman bungalow from another era. Enjoy dining inside on the comfortable expandable 4-6 person kitchen table or outdoors on the warm sunny deck overlooking the beautiful flowering garden. Relax in the hot tub while gazing at the stars and breathing in the sea air. The cottage features 2 bedrooms with Queen size beds and ensuite full bathrooms on opposite ends of the house offering complete privacy.

Twin Lakes Beach, the local's favorite, is a block away. It's a wide sunny strand, perfect for sunning, body surfing or just taking in the view of the lighthouse, passing sailboats and wildlife. The house comes equipped with everything you need for a perfect day at the beach-boogie boards, beach chairs and beach towels.

You can have a great time without ever getting in your car. Strolling to the beach, dining at local restaurants. dancing to live music at the Crows Nest or sailing, kayaking or stand up paddling at the Yacht Harbor.

Within a 10 minute drive or a slightly longer cruise on our vintage tandem bike, enjoy the historic Santa Cruz Boardwalk, surfing at world famous Pleasure Point, the lovely beachside village of Capitola or lively downtown Santa Cruz. with it's many store, cafes, movie theaters, street musicians and quirky Surf City personaility.

Venture a little further and there is wine tasting, mountain biking and hiking. Monterey and Carmel are just a scenic 45 minute drive away on Highway 1.
