                            The place is as shown- actually the view from the deck is even nicer than pictured. The place was clean, the owners were a dream to work with, and the place has a great deal of open space- perfect for a gathering or celebration. We were all delighted with our stay.

                            We rented the house over a long weekend for our wedding! We had friends stay with us and it had plenty of room for all of us to relax together! The appliances were top notch, everything was clean and it felt like a real home! The hot tub was an added bonus, as well as the great location! Very close to the beach (about 4 houses away) and a short drive to shops and restaurants!

                            This property is exactly what is shown on VRBO and the home is very clean, well sufficient, great kitchen and beautiful view of the ocean! We spent the weekend for our daughter's soccer tournament in Capitola and didn't have to drive that far. Having walking access to the beach is a plus, we spent every morning walking on the beach and the evening time! We loved hanging out on the deck with our family, played games and cooked most of our meals in the awesome kitchen! The owners are very kind to work with and responded to any questions we had prior to our visit! We will definitely come back again for some relaxation!

                            We really enjoyed our stay in Santa Cruz. Your home was in a great location to head both north and south along the coast. We all enjoyed the hot tub after swimming in the chilly ocean. Thanks for providing us such a comfortable place to stay with our family.

                            We stayed here in august, escaping the heat on the East Coast, and the weather couldn't have been better - sunshine every day. This house is fantastic. It was a very comfortable and at the same time upscale place to stay. We got in the hot tub every evening (and some mornings), made dinner in the well-appointed luxury kitchen and watched the Olympics on one of the big flat-screen TVs. The location is great, beautiful views of the ocean at the house and street end then a short walk to get to the shore. The beach there is very nice too - not very crowded. You can ride almost anywhere in Santa Cruz on the bike paths with the bikes at the house, and they have anything you would need for the beach. There are nice restaurants a short walk or ride away and there was a lot to see and do in Santa Cruz. We are ready for a return trip and would definitely stay at this house again.

                            We have rented quite a few beach houses in Santa Cruz/Capitola. This, by far, was our favorite! You made a very comfortable home open to us, your guests. We had the best time just hanging out and playing games. We brought our own, but, wow, you have a great selection. We biked to coffee. We played at the beach. We went to Roaring Camp Steam Train (Mom owns stock!!!) The weather was perfect. The mattresses were fantastic! Linens included made me really pick to look into this house, since we were traveling by plane. And, the set-up for separate families is great! Molly, you were so kind and really cared about us. Thank you, The Dennis Family

                            "Perfect Beach House!" We loved this house! We had 2 families plus one adult stay over Labor Day weekend. The house provided just the right amount of space to accomodate us all comfortably. The house is light, bright and airy. We loved hanging out on the deck and enjoying the gorgeous view of the ocean. This house is fully stocked with all of the amenities. It truly feels like a home and not a rental. Our kids loved playing the board games and riding the bikes. The beach is just a short walk down the street. Molly was fantastic and made the whole process super easy. We would love to stay at this house again!

                            this house is in a wonderful location - within sight and sound of beach, on a quiet street. up and down common areas plus hot tub in back yard and front 2nd story deck supply ample space for spreading out. kitchen was very well stocked, altho the cupboards were in disarray. we did a bit of organizing. floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors give the dining area and large table great views to the north and west. the main negative was: cleaning crew was leaving as we arrived, and had been slapdash in their efforts. no t.p. in bathrooms or good towel sets (one of the owners came and showed us where supplies were locked up in garage, accessible by cleaners. very helpful). we suggest more stringent oversight of housecleaning, because the home is beautifully furnished and deserves care.

                            Manager response: Thank you, Carole, for your kind review. Yes, finding a reliable and consistent cleaning crew has been an issue, but we are keeping on top of it. We also spent last week organizing the cupboards and linens so I hope you will find it in perfect order on your next visit. I appreciate you taking the time to let us know - we want each visitor to enjoy every moment of their time at our Family Beach Home.

                            Our family of 6 thoroughly enjoyed the comfort, amenities and location of this home. The layout of the home offered plenty of space to gather and nooks to slip away and read or rest in. It was clean, comfortable and offered many of the amenities of our own home. The location was fabulous. We rode bikes to Pleasure Point, the Boardwalk and shops in Santa Cruz. The little beach around the corner offered plenty of boogie boarding opportunities for our tweens and felt like our own private beach. Molly, the owner was very responsive and helpful in our booking the home. We would definitely stay here again when visiting Santa Cruz.

                          About: Our multi-generation family has owned and enjoyed beach houses in Santa Cruz for 35+ years and love the area. We all live in the San Jose area and consider this our escape from real life. We have created many wonderful memories at this home and continue to enjoy it ourselves with friends and family. We like the relaxed neighborhood with it's local feel, proximity to restaurants, shopping and Santa Cruz amenities, but relish the quiet and privacy of our little cul-de-sac.

                          Why Santa Cruz:
                          This home has the perfect balance of ocean view, space, proximity to the beach and quiet. It has been a good fit for our family.
