  • Great location and property

    "This home has many plusses - great vintage charm, clean and quality furnishings, perfect location for surfing, and a small but high quality hot tub. This rental was the best value of 3 homes I have rented in the area, and the nicest as well."

  • Fantastic house on Seabright beach

    "This place is incredible. Huge, so perfect for a large family or collection of families. The master suite and great room both share a balcony with fantastic views of the ocean. Extremely comfortable beds, nice and functional furniture throughout. The kitchen is modern, large, well equipped and well situated in the great room, overlooking the ocean. Garage remodel is a great touch with large television and gaming console; two master suites also a nice bonus. We brought 5 adults and 3 small children and honestly the house was almost too large for us. It could have easily accommodated another family of 3/4. Its literally across from a great beach (Seabright) and an easy walk to a few restaurants and the lighthouse/Santa Cruz harbor. We had wonderful morning and evening walks, and the outdoor shower was great for coming home in the afternoon after some sand play/swimming with the kids. We just had an amazing time, honestly. There were a few glitches with the (super cool) automated system (Sonos in every room, lighting controls, in-wall ipads for controls) but the owners were very responsive and friendly throughout. As an extra bonus we left some fairly expensive equipment behind and they collected it, and organized its return. We'll come back next year for more of the same. This was easily the best vacation I've had. ps. for a great cup of coffee try the walk to Verve, which has its roasting center nearby!"

  • Beautiful and amazing home.

    "This house is absolutely beautiful. As one reviewer said, it is well worth the money. It is very reasonable as I have been in many vacation rentals so I totally agree. This is a well crafted and artistically built home. I love the nice treats of wine and cheese. The owner had the house well supplied with staples, coffee, etc... The kitchen appliances are top quality and lovely. The bedrooms are very comfortable and so is the rest of the house. The yard is nice and quiet. The house is very clean and well maintained. You are only two short blocks away from great restaurants and the beach. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, and look forward to staying here again. Thanks Beth!"

  • Perfect Stay

    "We celebrated my daughter's 15th birthday with her friends and a day at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. We loved the house and location. It was only a 10 minute walk to the Boardwalk. The house has the perfect setup. The girls stayed in the loft and living room and we were downstairs in the bedroom creating separate quarters. I would definitely stay again. Girls want to come back next year."
