  • Santa Cruz beach house review

    "Great house which has been tastefully remodeled and is in a great location. House was extra clean and fully equipped for everything we needed for a week of relaxation. Easy walk to the beach and Crow's Next Restaurant. We enjoyed the main fire place in the mornings and beds were both very comfortable. Would definitely like to stay here again."

  • 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."

  • Turned what could have been a disaster into a great vacation

    "My daughter and I always run the Wharf to Wharf race and this year we decided to rent a house and stay a week. Two weeks prior to the event, the original rental cancelled on us. This event sells out so when the renter cancelled, we thought we were out of luck. Started searching for a replacement and found this property and it was available. Thought there must be something wrong with it since it hadn't been rented. What a surprise when we arrived and found a wonderful house, well stocked, comfortable, close to the beach and the race course so family and friends could come out and cheer us on. We had 2 toddlers with us and they had a ball. The backyard was just the right size for them and they enjoyed the roof top hot tube (as did we all). We all had a fabulous time. Would recommend this house."

  • Wonderful Week

    "It was a blessing to find such a bright and cheerful location to relax and come home to after kayak adventures. The owners are very helpful and open to positive feed back. I love to wash dishes so didn't mind that there was not a dishwasher. The house was cozy and just right for the two of us. So glad it didn't smell like dogs had been there even though it is a dog-friendly home. Good central location for us: near the Harbor, Gayle's Bakery, beaches and family. When windows were closed the road noise was not an issue but a bit loud when on the lovely deck. We WILL be back for sure!"
