  • Perfect beach home

    "The Beach Lover's Retreat is absolutely perfect as a "home away from home" for couples or families. We just spent Spring Break with our kids (ages 8 and 11) and our dog at Cal and Linda's Beach Lover's Retreat, and it was wonderful from start to finish. The kitchen was fully and beautifully equipped, and our kids loved "their" room, complete with toys, puzzles, games, and lots of great movies. The kids were also thrilled that our dog was warmly welcomed with treats, a bed of her own, and everything a dog could possibly need. Beautiful (and dog-friendly) beaches only a short walk from the house; our vacation included a hike through the beautiful Redwoods, daily ocean swims, and of course the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Cal and Linda are wonderful, welcoming hosts. I would highly recommend the beautiful and comfortable Beach Lover's Retreat to anyone considering a Santa Cruz vacation."

  • 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!!!"

    "Absolutely wonderful place! Very nicely decorated. Comfortable and very clean. I hope it stays this way, because I'd like to come back every year. The private beach close by is just so perfect."
