  • Heavenly Escape

    "On top of a mountain, surrounded by redwoods, is this fairytale house. With all the amenities you would expect in an upscale San Francisco home, but double the charm. Deana was very helpful in getting our rental arranged, and answering any questions we had once we got there. Although we didn't 'meet at the door', she was always available. It was an easy drive to the beach, with lots of nice local stores and small parks along the way. We had no trouble finding the house with our GPS, and getting back to SFO was no problem. We loved the big kitchen, the gas fireplace, and the charming loft. We had a big group, and never felt that the house was too small. This was a very clean, private, well organized and comfortable vacation rental, hosted by good people."

  • 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."

  • Couldn't ask for more

    "Well, I probably could ask for more: a hot tub, sauna, and an unlimited supply of time and money, but that may be expecting too much. It's right down the street from the beach, has a beautiful lagoon nearby. Good pizza, Hawaiian plate lunch, breakfast, sushi and Mexican is all an extremely short bike ride away (also within walking, skating distance). A little farther will get you to downtown and/or the Boardwalk. Despite this, it's a quiet well-kept neighborhood just tucked away from the wee bit of hubbub Santa Cruz has. Wonderful kitchen, great beds, spacious showers, and a remarkable backyard perfect to relax in. Plus there's bikes, boogie boards, a surfboard, etc. in the garage. And the concrete floors keep the house nice and cool on hot days. If you're looking for adventure or sightseeing, it's all within reach (kind of true of anywhere in SC, though, but being by the coast is probably preferable!). There is no downside here, except if you don't feel comfortable climbing stairs, as that's where the bedrooms are."

  • Quintessential Beach Cottage

    "What a lovely cottage, in a perfect location in Santa Cruz! My family and I own a home in Santa Cruz (which we rent out year-round), so when we have an opportunity to vacation there we opt for the Twin Lake area. This rental is in a prime location -- walkable to not just a gorgeous beach (right across the street), but some great restaurants, too. The main house is attractive and comfortable, and offered all the standard amenities we required for our stay. The offset unit with full-size foosball table was also a big hit with our children. With the affordable rate, impressive ocean views, and beach town charm of this property, we are not surprised at all of the 5-star ratings. Additionally, the owner was prompt with responses to our inquiries and very accommodating. Thank you, again, for a wonderful stay!"
