  • Santa Cruz Family Vacation

    "This is a perfect house for a family vacation. We were able to relax and let our three kids play in the yard. The location was excellent and the house was amazing!"

  • Wonderful time on the beach

    "Our large family stayed in the Castle Beach House in February of 2015. It was a wonderful time and a perfect location. The house itself, was well cared for and spacious. We enjoyed all areas of the house; the kitchen was well stocked and was fun cooking all together as the men sat at the breakfast bar and visited. My favorite, other than the upstairs suite, was the large dinner table where we all sat together to eat meals. The owners were kind and helpful through the rental process. It was beyond comfortable and will try to rent this house again in the future."

  • Wonderful!

    "The Watercolour Cottage was the PERFECT vacation rental for our stay in Santa Cruz! Having grown up in Santa Cruz, I knew in advance that the location was ideal for travelers and jumped at the chance to snag this gem for the week. The pictures definitely don't do it justice, the home is absolutely charming and well-equipped for a comfortable stay. My husband and I were traveling with our two boys, a 3 year old and a 1.5 year old. The house was perfect for them, with a great backyard and garden for them to "discover" things. My nature-loving 3 year old was excited to return every afternoon to "the house that is so cute!" (his words:)). The owners were very friendly and helpful, and made sure that I was comfortable contacting them should the need arise. They have really put some thought into utilizing the space of the house to ensure that all comforts are met and you don't feel "cramped". I highly recommend a stay here while in Santa Cruz, you won't regret it!"

  • Beach Lovers Retreat

    "We arrived on a Monday evening to this delightful beach house. We were warmly welcomed with a note card, cookies and a bottle of wine. Our small dog loved his freedom in the backyard with no risk of escape. He also found treats just for him in the kitchen on a lower shelf. We found everything we needed to cook our meals, relax with good friends, and soak up the warmth of the sun. Our surfing friend enjoyed the ready beach access to great surf spots and the outdoor shower for his return from the beach. I loved walking to the nearby spot to watch the snowy egrets and on another occasion to watch the longboard surf contest that was just about a mile away from the house. The little market just up the street was very convenient and the proprietor said he had the best hamburgers…unfortunately, we found out about the hamburgers to late within our stay. I hope we are able to come back to this house again in the future and try them out! Another fun day was sailing out of Santa Cruz on the Chardonnay II…the wind was perfect. Special thanks to the owners who do everything needed to make this a great beach stay! We will definitely return to this house if we visit Santa Cruz again."
