  • Pleasantly surprised and happy :-)

    "As a first time VRBO.COM traveler I was so leery about using this site to book a vacation rental. Even after multiple emails between myself and the owner (Janea) I still had my family wait in the car until I walked up the stairs to make sure the property was not fradulant. I can't explain my excitement as I called down to them to let them know it was safe for them to come up. We had a blast!!! We spent our days exploring all nearby parks, and beaches. Our evenings were spent on the BEAUTIFUL decks barbecuing and roasting marshmallows. Janea was amazing and responed to my multiple emails within a couple of hours. She lives next door and when she noticed the outside lighting was out we found her changing the strands of lights as we pulled up one evening. My kids loved this place and found many games inside to occupy their downtime. We will definitely be back as we love visiting the Santa Cruz area every summer. THANKS AGAIN JANEA FOR SHARING YOUR CABIN WITH OUR FAMILY!!!"

  • Best Family Vacation!!!

    "I think this was the best family vacation ever! From the moment we opened the door and walked into the Sea Angel to closing the door behind us when we departed, what a wonderful experience. The house was so clean and fresh. Walking in the front door and seeing the sand buckets filled with gifts with my kid’s names on them was such a nice treat, they truly enjoyed getting them. The kids immediately ran up the spiral staircase and claimed the loft as theirs and they made themselves a home. The bedrooms were so spacious and the beds were very comfortable and the linens/bed spreads were cozy. The kitchen had everything!!! Truly enjoyed the K-cup coffee machine and waffle maker. The décor of the Sea Angel was lovely. The large dining table was a great place for the whole family to come together. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck too whether it was early morning or late in the evening, it was so relaxing to hear the ocean. We spent a lot of time at the beach and the boardwalk and we walked most of the time. The convenience of the beach being 4-doors away was awesome. It is a very clean beach with easy stair access, fire pits and lifeguards, also a quick walk to get to the marina and lighthouse. The walk to the boardwalk was fabulous, not too far at all and the people in the neighborhoods we walked through were extremely nice. The use of the outdoor (shared) shower was a plus to getting cleaned up before going back into the house. I was a bit concerned with the parking only being available on the street with no driveway use, but it was never a problem. We had multiple cars too and we always came back to the house to find plenty of parking. Only being responsible for cleaning the deck grill, cleaning the kitchen and washing the towels made the departure easy, although sad because our trip had come to an end and we had to leave the Sea Angel. Working with the homeowner Mary was so easy, I’d email her and she would always quickly respond back with answers to all my questions. Also, I was notified that my deposit refund was in the mail within 24 hours of departure. I truly cannot say enough about the Sea Angel and our stay and how my family enjoyed the vacation. We are already talking about planning another trip to the Sea Angel next summer. I would definitely recommend the Sea Angel to all my family and friends."

  • 60th Birthday celebration

    "When my daughter told me the whole family had rented two cottages on seabright beach for my big birthday, I was So excited!! Santa Cruz has been my favorite beach since I was a kid, in fact I had met my husband( 45years earlier) at a beach in Santa Cruz. I had never heard of Seabright beach so I googled it. To my unbelief that was NOT the name of the beach in the 70's, it was the same beach I had met my husband on named CASTLE BEACH. When we entered this amazing cottage of Granit countertops, tall ceilings and ocean views from all the windows, we went to the back patio. Stepping out onto the patio, we looked out to the very spot we had said our first " Hello", just a few yards away. 42years of marriage , four children and three grandchildren later , it was a full circle of blessings !! Thanks to this amazing bungalow of two units ,housed this family on which I will be eternally Greatful !! All the conveniences you will need and walking to whatever adventure from shopping, pier, restaurant ,watching the sunrise and sunset right in front of you at the seashore. We saw three schools of dilphins right in front of us. My heart is so full of Thanks for this special place, we will be back. The entire family loved our time here. Sincerely , Karen O."

  • Really lovely home, great for large groups

    "We stayed here during the 5K/10K race. We had a very large group so we ended up split between two homes due to the Santa Cruz regulations capping the number of people in one home. The home is very clean and well stocked and really has everything you could need from kitchen supplies to even extra shampoo/conditioner in the bathroom (really helpful in a house full of women). The home also provides a lot of places to either be together or to be in smaller groups, which is nice when you have a mix of people. In addition to the beautiful beach at one end, there is a cute little Mexican restaurant at the other if you want something quick and well priced. This would be a great place to host a scrap booking party or some other kind of crafty event since there are so many places to hang out. It is also a great place if you have kids since there are many places to "put the kids" where they are within earshot of adults. I would even use this home as a work retreat place since there are a lot of places where you can break off in smaller groups. A few words of advice - 1) Definitely don't put more than 6 cars in the driveway. It says that in the leasing agreement and they owners mean it (In fairness, I think it may be another Santa Cruz regulation and the owners could get fined). You will definitely be tempted because the driveway is so big, but the owners monitor via security cameras so definitely stick to the rules. At one point, we had too many cars in the driveway and got panicked calls on my home phone and cell phone, which definitely affected the mood as everyone started looking for where there might be other cameras (don't worry, we didn't find any others). 2) Also, the game room is in the back through a different entrance. We didn't find it our first day (granted, most of us arrived after dark). 3) There are a lot of stairs. If you have people who can't do stairs, this probably isn't the place for you since the bedrooms are on the first floor and the living areas are on the second. We had a lady pull out at the last minute because of a twisted ankle and several of us remarked how hard it would've been on her if she had decided to attend to just hang out and not run the race. Everyone had a great time and I would definitely recommend this place (and hope to be back). You will have a great time."
