                                                              It was amazing to wake up each morning and drink a my cup of coffee outside the back door on the beach and enjoy the beautiful sunsets each night! This home is exactly as described! I couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay with my family!

                                                              The view in the front room is breathtaking!

                                                              We loved our stay. We loved just walking out the back door and onto the beach. I can’t wait to stay here again.

                                                              Staying here made it seem like all my stress floated out with the tide. It was so peaceful and beautiful. I bet we added a few years to our life by removing some of it's weights. We highly suggest you rent this lovely home.

                                                              Spent my 60th birthday with six of my best friends and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Can I say location, location, location!!!!! If you're a beach lover then this is the place for you!!! Just steps away from a wonderful beach, a short walk to great restaurants and shopping, near Capitola and Santa Cruz if you wan to do that. The condo is fantastic with all the amenities needed to make yourself at home and the view from the master bedroom is to die for!!!! I know I'll be back with my family and so will several of the ladies on my trip!!! If you looking for a beach getaway then this is the place for you.

                                                              The view of the ocean was WONDERFUL!!!

                                                              The view was wonderful, couldn't have been closer to the water. The owner was very responsive to any question we had. Thank you for that. The parking was street praking, but we were able to park right in front of the door (usually within 30 feet).
