"This house is perfect for a family and a beach vacation. The back yard is huge! The wagons, toys, boards and towels make things amazingly easy. Pleasure Point is wonderful. We highly recommend the breakfast burritos from the market down the street. Mary and Mike are lovely and helpful. We plan to return."

"myself and 3 girlfriends stayed here for our annual get together. Girlfriends for over 20yrs and this by far is one of our favorite stays. Beautiful time of the year to be at the beach. Comfortable home with a well stock kitchen, hot tub, and everyone slept well. Stairs are not too bad and very worth the trip down to the water. Thanks for sharing your home!"

Spacious, clean and comfortable ... but there is a bit of street noise
"First and foremost - Portola Paradise is a great rental. There was plenty of room for our family of four and the hosts thought of EVERYTHING to make it an extremely comfortable stay, especially for a family.
The hosts were also extremely responsive to any questions before and during our stay.
We loved how central and convenient the rental is to anything around greater Santa Cruz, however, Portola Dr is a main road that does not slow down until 10 pm during the week and a bit later. I am actually surprised other guests have not mentioned this ... maybe we're just not used to being on a busier road.
This would be a strong 5 star rating and future repeat rental for us based on all other aspects, but we're just not used to living on a main drag."

"I stayed here with my husband, 2 kids, and small dog and everything was absolutely perfect. The house was clean, bright and comfortable- and clearly some artists live here! The kitchen and hot tub were fabulous, the yard was lovely. Our dog enjoyed the short stroll to the beach every morning and evening. We were far enough from the bustle of downtown Santa Cruz to feel relaxed, but just a couple minutes drive from grocery store, surfing lessons, and beaches. Highly recommend and we would love to return!"
