  • Great surprise

    "We stayed here for a week with a bunch of family. There was 3 couples and a baby in the house and it never felt crowded or loud at all. The house is waaay bigger than it seems in the pictures. Took us about 3 days to get used to the layout as it's a bit like a maze, in a fun way. The place was well stocked with everything you might need. The property has a huge driveway. We managed to fit a large RV on it as well as three cars. The owner does allow RVs for a small fee. It was about 7min walk to the beach at the end of the road. Very quiet neighbourhood. The owner was responsive to emails and calls. We had an issue with where we parked the RV (the renters at the neighbouring property, also owned by this owner, didn't like it). The owner was apologetic and her and the live-in caretaker in this house helped us work out a solution. The only downsides I can think of for the property is that its upstairs (didn't bother us) and that there are some low ceilings here and there from the roof line. We're all quite tall so we banged our heads a few times before getting the gist of it. Definitely recommend this place and for the price, it's a great value."

  • Awesome location , charming home

    "This historic cute bungalow is located a walk from the beach and a very nice part of town. My wife myself in our three kids stayed here for four days and loved it. The house has everything you need to stay at night you can hear the waves break in the bay. It's an easy walk to most everything you need to go to. We definitely plan i'm staying at this location again."

  • 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."

  • Beautiful, spacious home in a fantastic location!

    "I wish I could give this home a 10 star rating! It's even more impressive than the pictures! The owner, Jill, was a delight to work with--communication was great and she was extremely warm and friendly when checking in. We cannot say enough about this home. The six beautifully decorated bedrooms, all with queen beds, allowed our grown children to have their own space, which they greatly appreciated. The dining room has a huge table with seating to easily accommodate 14 people, and the kitchen has everything you need to prepare a large meal. The living room/family room with large screen TV is another large gathering space where we were able to relax at the end of the day--all 12 of us, without sitting on top of each other. We also spent time on the beautiful brick patio, where you will find yet another large table, grilling some fresh fish on the barbecue. During the day, we walked to the wharf, strolled through the shops of the quaint downtown area of Santa Cruz, and ran along the ocean--never having to get in our cars. We enjoyed nightly fires in the firepit in the back yard--roasting marshmallows for s'mores. Our family time together is extremely important, since our children live in different parts of the U.S. I looked at many homes before deciding on Villa de las Palmas, and we all agreed this spacious home is why we had such a fantastic time. We are already talking about when we can return for another stay. I will also be recommending this home to our friends, as it is the perfect home for couples to vacation together. Thank you, Jill, for sharing your home with us!!"
