Property description

136 Younger Way is located atop Santa Cruz's Beach Hill, an easy downhill stroll to the Pacific Ocean, Main Beach volleyball courts, the historic Santa Cruz Wharf and the famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Surfers and boogie boarders are just minutes away from Cowell’s (beginner waves) and Steamer Lane (expert waves). Explore downtown shops, restaurants and coffee shops which are easily accessible by a 3-5 minute leisurely peddle on a beach cruiser bike (free with rental), or a 10 minute walk. There are endless other recreational options in Santa Cruz County including mountain biking, hiking, sailing, kayaking and scenic trains through redwood forests.


The house is a completely renovated (2012) craftsman style home with two bedrooms, one bath, spacious dining room, living room, and a beautiful new kitchen. Large, double hung windows throughout the house make it a bright and cheerful place for your vacation.

There are two units on the property, the main house and a small studio cottage, VRBO listing #418113. If you need more space, consider renting both. This listing is for the main house only.

A newly completed 18' x 20' deck in the backyard features a pergola with outdoor lighting and heat lamps, along with an 8-person dining table and outdoor sectional sofa -- a perfect spot to enjoy an outdoor meal or dive into a book.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We moved to Santa Cruz in July 2011 from Chicago. It's been quite a culture shift; but we love it, we love the relaxed and friendly culture of Santa Cruz, we really think there's no place like it and we have traveled all over the world. We've been married 16 years and love sharing new experiences We've traveled to 41 countries together and have a passion for social justice issues; both globally and locally. Chad recently founded a social impact start-up, ruly, and Jodi works as a psychotherapist at UCSC's Counseling & Psychological Services. Our boys love living in Santa Cruz; playing at the beach, soccer at Depot Park, or mountain biking at Wilder Ranch.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
We took a 12 week sabbatical in 2009; volunteering for a fair trade retailer who was located in Santa Cruz. We spent 6 weeks in Santa Cruz and 6 weeks in East Africa. After returning home to Chicago, we decided to pursue a different journey in life, sold our house and in time decided we wanted Santa Cruz to be our new home. We love the relaxed neighborhood feel up on Beach Hill, it's so close to all the action, but being on a one way street keeps it quiet and relaxing! We love the Craftsman style home with lots of light and character throughout; as well as the great outdoor spaces of the home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Relaxation and fun are the two things we love about living at 136 Younger Way. We can stroll down to the beach for 30 minutes, hop our bikes and for some boogie boarding fun, or relax on the front porch listening to the summer beach concerts.
