Santa Cruz house description

In my opinion this is the best house on the West Side of Santa Cruz! Our family home is not your typical vacation rental! We are located on the beautiful Lighthouse Field, which has lush spring grasses, colorful wildflowers, and Monarch butterflies which flutter by in the summer. The field has many winding walking paths to the ocean, lighthouse, and Steamers Lane (a famous surf break). We have unobstructed views from the house, across the field, to the ocean.

Our house is a quality Craftsman classic style home that has over 2700 square feet,and is a Thatcher and Thompson design, which is a renowned architectural firm in Santa Cruz. This is a solidly built luxury beach house, with custom wood windows, all hardwood floors, solid wood interior doors (for sound proofing), and a covered deck for ocean viewing. This family home is tastefully designed, with quality European style furnishings, fine linens, very comfortable mattresses, and fabulous oriental carpets and eclectic artwork. There are three bedrooms with adjoining baths, and two bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bath between them (for a couple and a child).

When you wake in the morning you can gaze at the ocean, or sit on the cushioned teak bench and chair and feel the sun warm your face. Take a walk, bike, or run on the West Cliff path which is two miles long, or continue on the path to Wilder State Park (another two miles), where there are many secluded beach coves. Perhaps you would like to walk to It's Beach, which is across Lighthouse field, to sun bathe, boogie board, or swim. As the sun sets, you can watch the moon rise from the front deck, hear the peaceful distant barking of the sea lions, and the rumble of the ocean waves.

It is only a stroll to the Boardwalk (an amusement park with rides) and pier where there are delicious seafood restaurants. We are also only one mile from the downtown where you can often hear street musicians playing, see balloon clowns make their wares, check out the book stores, look through the designer clothing stores, eat at the many choices of restaurants, go to the cinema (there are four to choice from), or just people watch.

A variety of amenities, including two mountain bikes, a jogging stroller, boogie boards, surfboards, a kid's wagon and a gas barbecue are all provided for your enjoyment!
