  • Family weekend getaway

    "We had a great time at the Sandcastle! The location was convenient, and the layout was well suited to our family. There were 3 generations of us (6 adults, 2 kids, 1 baby) and there was plenty of space for everyone. (The grandkids had fun with all the games, sleeping in the bunkbeds, and hanging out in the loft). The house was well-equipped with beach towels, kitchen/bathroom supplies, and even a basket of treats on the kitchen table to welcome us when we arrived. There was a portacrib and high chair provided - and much appreciated. The owners were great to work with and the house was well-maintained and comfortable. We enjoyed going The Boardwalk, shopping in downtown Santa Cruz, and hanging out at the beach during out stay."

  • Beach House EXCELLENCE

    "We had a BLAST, even though we live just 20 minutes away...there's something about having a place right on the beach that can't be beat. The kitchen is well appointed and made it easy to cook (though there are restaurants all over the area, so you don't have to). The bedrooms have everything you'd need and as a big guy, really appreciated king beds throughout. the deck is the perfect place to watch for whales and/or otters and/or surfers, and the high ceilings and easy parking made the whole thing just about perfect."

  • Excellent house in Santa Cruz

    "This is a wonderful house in an excellent location in Santa Cruz, in easy walking distance to Natural Bridges State Beach (my favorite beach on the entire coastline from Monterrey to San Francisco) and to West Cliff Drive, which is the most scenic stretch in Santa Cruz and has a wonderful walking/running/biking trail along the cliff edge. The house is exactly as described, but nicer, more comfortable and more spacious than the photos suggest. Unlike other vacation homes that I have rented, there were no unexpected negatives. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances and utensils. There are bikes, beach chairs, an umbrella, sand toys, etc available to use. Everything is well labeled and explained, and there is no clutter at all, so it is very easy to move in and relax. The owner is meticulous about all the details and responds immediately to any questions. This is a great house of kids. The backyard is enclosed. The house is on a quiet and safe cul-de-sac, and there is little inside that kids would be likely to break. We had a wonderful time staying here. The next time we plan to rent a house in Santa Cruz, I will definitely check availability here first."

  • Wonderful vacation!

    "We stayed with my husband and 2 young children, ages 3 and 6 months, as well as my sister, her husband, and 2 small dogs. First of all the backyard is lovely. Private, good size, fenced so great for dogs, with a garden and lots of fruit frees and flowers. Neighbors are friendly too! House is really good size too, we did not feel cramped at all. Kitchen is equipped for everything, it was like home only 3 or so blocks from the beach! The area is so peaceful and picturesque, plus u can bike just ab anywhere, shopping, beach, parks, etc. Kathie was incredibly helpful and thoughtful, provided us with ideas on what to do during our stay and even sent us discounted tickets to the aquarium! We usually do Hawaii every year, we are considering changing to this place instead! Highly recommend."
