Recent Santa Cruz reviews

  • Perfect location! Perfect views!

    "A week at the beach just before school started with 3 grandkids, ages 15, 10, and 6. It was just perfect. This tiny house had it all, views, short walk to beach, bikes and beach equipment in garage, hot tub to warm up in after watching the sunset. The photoes were accurate. The house was easy to keep neat and clean. The kitchen had a killer view and great knives, pots and appliances. The outdoor area is very private from the very quiet street. One bedroom was a lovely room across the garden, without a bathroom but perfect for 2 nights for my grandkids parents. It would be great for teens. I would give this house a 5 star rating if the bathroom was updated--shower was small and in need of replacement. My 15 year old granddaughter only took 2 showers, rather than the usual daily shower! The location is perfect: lovely small beach with surfers, seals, otters, whale-sightings, and beach fires at night. Just a 2 mile walk or bike ride to Capitola. A couple of blocks from the famous Pleasure Point - surfers paradise. Food and mall shopping nearby. We rode bikes most days. We took a whale watching trip from the nearby harbor on Stagnaros boat. Saw more whales than I ever expected, great captain and naturalist. A visit to the Seymore Marine center near UC was wonderful for the kids, touched a shark (very tiny shark). Lucky for me the parents took the kids to the famous boardwalk. I cannot wait for next summer and returning to this sweet little place!"

  • 8 Selfies Together Make A Family

    "Family fun for all - from 6 to 60-something - was our goal, and we all agreed we couldn't have chosen a better place for our annual 4th of July outing. When we were "home", we were very comfortable and were able to spread out to watch TV, play games, hot tub, read, or prepare our next fantastic meal. The location (for walking, biking, sunbathing, and people watching), and the ocean views were the stars of our event - except for the granddaughters, of course. Anyway, we highly recommend this vacation home and plan to return in the future!"

  • Truly Santa Cruz eclectic. What a find!

    "This sweet place is truly a Santa Cruz find. It's located in a quiet-centrally located neighborhood perfect for a weekend or longer get away or home base to explore beaches, hiking and biking trails and all Santa Cruz area activities, complete with 2-person shower and spa, wood fireplace and two outdoor decks. Cook in or eat out. It was perfect for the two of us and we can't wait to return. The owner and property manager are very helpful and accommodating."

  • California getaway

    "The home was absolutely beautiful, a piece of history in itself, location was great and Debbi and Charles were extremely nice and helpful people. Me and my family could not ask for a better experience for our first time to California. On our next trip out we would love to have this home!"
