"A dream cottage! It captured my heart the second I walked in. Luxury and comfort are the words that come to mind. The house was cozy yet there was plenty of room for our party of 5 to enjoy our stay and still have plenty of privacy. The bedding was like a cloud with its premium sheets and comforters. I think my favorite room was the red parlor as you first enter. I spent hours looking at the surf from this cozy room. We loved the upstairs game room with its billiards and foosball. There is easy access to the beach. We will be back! We all felt our time was too short in this great place."

"All of our friends joined us for a bachelor / bachelorette weekend. The house was perfect for a big group and a very short walk to the beach and boardwalk. We were able to fit a lot of people at the table for games and they have a good selection of board games at the house. There were plenty of beds and a lot of floor space to put down the provided floor mats and air mattresses that we brought. We enjoyed taking the boogie boards to the beach. There is also a great view from the balcony. We couldn't have asked for a better place!"

"We can’t imagine a better place to stay in Santa Cruz. (We lived here for three winter months, January through March.) The house itself is immaculate, with large windows looking out onto a lagoon and down to a nearby neighborhood beach. One of the neighbors told us he thinks the view from Tony and Laura’s place is “one of the best in Santa Cruz,” and he’s right. The lagoon is surrounded by towering eucalyptus trees. There is a lovely deck above the lagoon with a hot tub that’s kept ready to go for you. The beach, just a five-minute walk, is a friendly, neighborhood beach
The bathroom and kitchen are very modern, the fireplace is a treat if the weather turns cold (which it almost never does), and the tv-watching nook is totally comfy.
And in our view, all of that isn’t even the best part. In just five minutes, you can walk in one direction and be on the walkway above Pleasure Point, looking out over the Monterey Bay and one of the most famous surfing destinations in the world. We walked there every morning before dawn to watch the sun come up. And if you walk five minutes in the other direction, down through those eucalyptus trees, you’re at the beach – where you can relax in the sun or, at day’s end, watch the sunset.
How many places are there, anywhere, where you can do both of those things in just a short walk? Tony and Laura are marvelous, friendly, fair, and quick to deal with anything about the place you may not understand. We’ve already reserved our chance to come back.
