                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1995

                  About the owner: The Schipper's are 3rd generation family from Santa Cruz. We have built a beautiful, comfortable home which we love to share with others. Mark works in the computer industry and Holly as a teacher. We have enjoyed Living in Santa Cruz very much. During the summer months, we travel extensively and enjoy meeting people from around the world. We work hard to ensure that your stay in Santa Cruz is an enjoyable one!

                  Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
                  Let our home become your home away! We live in such a great area of Santa Cruz. The 'Eastside' or 'Banana Belt' area is close to many great shopping spots such as Staff of Life, Whole Foods, and Synergy shopping outlet. There are many quaint boutiques and some great restaurants such as the Crepe Place or Llilians Italian- all within a short 5 min. walk. Our family frequently walks to the Yacht Harbor or Twin Lakes Beach through the secluded area of Arana Gulch. The Crows Nest restaurant or Cafe El Palomar are two great spots to enjoy a fine dinner or some tapas while on the beach. Aldo's is just across the Harbor on the other side. Downtown Santa Cruz or Capitola are both within a 5 min. drive. Both offer great shopping and fine cuisine. Basically, our house is located to so very much: The Boardwalk, Beaches, the Redwoods, Golf courses, Yacht Harbor and so much more! We have boogie boards, some bikes to borrow, beach chairs, and towels.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Our home has a cozy, relaxed feel to it. Come and unwind while sipping tea on our back porch. Eat fresh veggies from our extensive garden or enjoy a hot tub after a day at the beach.
