Santa Cruz house description

Sunny, spacious beach house with gorgeous decks that open on to the best family and surfing beach in Santa Cruz. Step out of the surf and into the hot tub to enjoy your private view of the park, lagoon, beach and ocean. Normal stay Saturday to Saturday.

Private yet spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bath house opens onto large front and back yards. Master suite with ocean view and private access to the hot tub deck, second bedroom with private entrance, and a third room with four beds. Hardwood floors, picture windows, fantastic views. Attention to detail: fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, stove and oven, microwave, coffeemaker, and blender. New infrared gas grill. Private WiFi throughout the house. State of the art 3D capable 55' flat screen TV with cable, Blue Ray, Netflix, and Hulu!

Beds for 8 adults, plus more spaces for kids. The extra large parking lot offers plenty of room to play in the yard. In this beachfront neighborhood of permit parking, there is room on the property to park 6 cars.

Have dinner on the deck, settle in with a book on a lounge chair, stroll to the beach, walk to the coffee shop, or soak in the custom, extra deep hot tub. Chairs, balls, and toys for the yard and beach, board games for indoors. There’s plenty to do, yet lots of ways to just relax.

Flat, wheelchair-accommodating path to the best family beach in town. Boogie board, bodysurf, skimboard, volleyball, beachball, soccer, sunbathe, you name it. The beach is exceptional in this town in that it is never covered by the high tide. No cliffs nor slippery rocks, you can always feel the warm, soft sand beneath your toes.

Once you set foot on this property you’ll never want to leave. Located at the end of a quiet street in the heart of a great beach town, it is perfect for a family reunion or a couples' romantic getaway. Over 1000 square feet of new decks provide a private area for sunbathing and a grand space for entertainment and relaxation. Hear birds singing in the trees overhead and the sound of crashing waves.


And the surf! This is the best destination summer surf spot in California! It has it all, point, reef and beach breaks from beginner to intermediate to advanced. You can walk to a dozen top notch spots like 26th Ave. (famous for aerials), Pleasure Point (long, ruler edge rights), Second Point & O’Neil’s (great for beginners), Sewers (primo tubes, advanced), 38th Ave. (perhaps the best summer wave in town), the Hook (another classic point) and Privates (another great beginner point wave). The property manager can offer you some tips and insight based on his 40 years in the water. Come back home and take a hot outdoor shower to wash off the sand before popping into the hot tub.

              Fantastic location in front of the best family beach in the heart of Santa Cruz. The beach out front provides endless fun body surfing, surfing, boogie boarding, skim boarding, volleyball, etc. It is also a wonderful romantic place to stroll the evening sunset.

              Nearby are the Boardwalk, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, as well as lots of shops and plenty of things to do.

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About: I have lived in Santa Cruz since 1974 and love the town and all it has to offer. I know the ins and outs and all of the nooks and crannies where good things are hidden. Besides my work as a real estate agent, I have worked as a teacher for 33 years, and a nature and adventure guide during those summers.

              Why Santa Cruz:
              This place is something special. The location can't be beat. The house is comfortable, clean and well equipped. It has a great, light, bright, warm feel to it. The views are great. The privacy is wonderful yet there's plenty lots of room to spread out on an double sized lot.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              No other beach property in Santa Cruz is quite like this one. You have an unobstructed view of the beach, park and lagoon from the huge front deck and yard. You have all the benefits of being at the beach with a lot less traffic and noise.
