Santa Cruz house description

Welcome to the Main Beach, Boardwalk, Wharf and Downtown, and a short walk to the Cliffs and Steamer Lane.

With a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, large eating area with kitchen, bathroom, living room, sun room and a washer and dryer, dishwasher, the house is well-suited for your beach stay. The yard has an outdoor patio, table and chairs. Beach chairs and umbrella are provided along with other amenities. Included are 2 televisions with wireless internet.

The Beach Victorian is over 100 years old and is owned by the Olivieri Family--one of the old italian fishing families that immigrated from Genoa, Italy in the early 1900's. We have renovated and remodeled to keep the house in a rather old style with a touch of new throughout.

If you want the Santa Cruz Main beach experience, look no further! With the old/new warm surroundings, and the beach/boardwalk a walk away, you've come to your perfect vacation home.

Not only the Victorian house, beach, cliffs and downtown but our Italian hospitality will serve you well! It is our desire to make your stay the best Santa Cruz experience ever.

Come join us today!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2012

          About the owner: The Olivieri family inherited the family property in 2012. It is owned by 3 sisters, Jenette, Joanne and Lorina. We live in Santa Cruz and grew up in this house. The family were fishermen, later opening a fast food restaurant called the Dog House in front of the Ideal Fish Restaurant at the Wharf entrance. Mom and Dad were in business from 1957 to 1977 when they retired. Since then the wharf entrance has been changed but our memories live on in that Beach Victorian, good memories that we hope to share with you. We love our city and our heritage.

          Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
          The Victorian is currently under remodel and is available March 2015. When you're ready, price, comfort and convenience will mean everything to you. We have it all. Our prices are comparable to other Santa Cruz locations that require driving to the beach, boardwalk, downtown and/or Municipal wharf. Our house is located very close to all--you can simply walk to them! We provide comfort as well. Our beds are of the highest quality and it will be our joy to hear of your great night's sleep. As a bonus, our Italian heritage will provide you with the best of hospitality. Our pleasure is your pleasure. Let us know what you need to make your stay remarkable.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Our central location and perfect accommodations say it all.
