  • Cozy cottage!

    "Exactly as described! Owners were pleasant. Cottage has all the amenities of home: wifi, cable tv, kitchenware, etc. Kids loved the outdoor fire pit, plus the smores kit provided by the owners! Great location: few blocks walk to the beach, quick drive to the usual SC sites, good restaurants, great coffee (Verve). I highly recommend this cottage."

  • A Great Alternative to the Beach

    "It all starts with the location. As active seniors we have always loved the mountains and countryside better than an oceanside experience. By choosing this wonderful home in a new area to us, we could have both. The various beachside communities were a short drive away for exploring when we wanted; but we could return to the peaceful beauty of our retreat. The neighborhood is off the beaten path and quite private and quiet. The neighbors we met were very friendly including the sweet resident dog across the street. Ben Lomond proper (a mile or less away) has a great gourmet grocery, and traditional grocers are nearby in Felton and Scotts Valley. We loved hiking in Henry Cowell Redwood State Park on several occasions; and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the mountain area and backroads over Pinot Paradise weekend visiting several interesting wineries and tasting yummy pinots. Quail Hollow was off limits for us hiking-wise, as dogs are not permitted (equestrian/pedestrian); but it is basically within walking distance from the home and appeared to have some great ridge trails. Now for the home itself. What a perfect place. As others have stated, it has everything you could desire inside and out. It is bright and airy, quality comfortable furnishings and bed, a super gas fireplace in the living area, a gorgeous kitchen with anything we could ever desire (including a Keurig), another gas fireplace in master (which came in handy in early morning hours), wifi, flat-screen tv, even flameless candles. Beautiful grounds. Over the five days we spent time in each outside space. The deck off the living room was just right for morning breakfast. Enjoyed feeding the birds from tray on ledge. The large deck off the master complete with comfy sofa was our go-to spot for most late afternoon cocktails. We spent a wonderful evening sitting by the firepit below in the meadow, and a serene afternoon interlude by the Buddha and fountain. We are so grateful that our dog, Sadie, could share this experience also. She loved playing chuckit in the meadow and resting on the deck afterward, always hoping for squirrel sightings. We took advantage of the vegetable garden savoring a lovely salad with fresh lettuce and herbs. This home is among the best we have ever rented. The owner Lolly was very helpful and friendly, providing many useful ideas for our daily outings. We would highly recommend this home and will definitely be returning - hopefully soon!"

  • Best Family Vacation!!!

    "I think this was the best family vacation ever! From the moment we opened the door and walked into the Sea Angel to closing the door behind us when we departed, what a wonderful experience. The house was so clean and fresh. Walking in the front door and seeing the sand buckets filled with gifts with my kid’s names on them was such a nice treat, they truly enjoyed getting them. The kids immediately ran up the spiral staircase and claimed the loft as theirs and they made themselves a home. The bedrooms were so spacious and the beds were very comfortable and the linens/bed spreads were cozy. The kitchen had everything!!! Truly enjoyed the K-cup coffee machine and waffle maker. The décor of the Sea Angel was lovely. The large dining table was a great place for the whole family to come together. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck too whether it was early morning or late in the evening, it was so relaxing to hear the ocean. We spent a lot of time at the beach and the boardwalk and we walked most of the time. The convenience of the beach being 4-doors away was awesome. It is a very clean beach with easy stair access, fire pits and lifeguards, also a quick walk to get to the marina and lighthouse. The walk to the boardwalk was fabulous, not too far at all and the people in the neighborhoods we walked through were extremely nice. The use of the outdoor (shared) shower was a plus to getting cleaned up before going back into the house. I was a bit concerned with the parking only being available on the street with no driveway use, but it was never a problem. We had multiple cars too and we always came back to the house to find plenty of parking. Only being responsible for cleaning the deck grill, cleaning the kitchen and washing the towels made the departure easy, although sad because our trip had come to an end and we had to leave the Sea Angel. Working with the homeowner Mary was so easy, I’d email her and she would always quickly respond back with answers to all my questions. Also, I was notified that my deposit refund was in the mail within 24 hours of departure. I truly cannot say enough about the Sea Angel and our stay and how my family enjoyed the vacation. We are already talking about planning another trip to the Sea Angel next summer. I would definitely recommend the Sea Angel to all my family and friends."

  • Privacy, Security, Bright, Close to beach

    "You can hear the sea lions at night, the lighthouse park and point are easy walking distance. Great bike riding and walking. Bright and Sunny house. The yard is secure and sunny. Great floorpan for guests; easy to care for. Kitchens, bathrooms, are elegant and new. Close to UCSC so we could visit our daughter. I love everything about this house!"
