About Lori Talbot

We are the Talbot family and live in the East Bay of San Francisco. When we bought our vacation rental our kids were 9 and 12, and we wanted a place we could all enjoy. We wanted to embrace the Santa Cruz life style with a beach house style home. I was born and raised in Hawaii and I wanted a home away from home. So the island decor fit perfect with the house location to the surf, beach and the Aloha Grill down the street. Our kids love the bunk beds and we made one of the rooms into a surfer decor to bring the Santa Cruz surf style to life. The beach, which is a short walk away was perfect for us. It has boogie boarding, surfing, great sand for sand castles and wonderful views. The beach has no public parking so it is inhabited by mostly locals and doesn't get to crowded. Also at night it is a great beach for bonfires.

Lori Talbot purchased this house in 2006

Why Lori Talbot chose Central Coast

There is nothing like listening to the waves crash on the shore or to watch the sunset. We wanted at place we could all enjoy as a family or with friends. What I have come to enjoy is sharing this house with guest from all over the country and the world. I truly enjoy all the wonderful comments we receive about the house. It has become a special place for many others who have stayed here. It is very comfortable, and relaxing. We try to have everything you would like on vacation at your finger tips. It is a great location for all generations. Not far is the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, which fun for all kids. The beach is great for swimming, catching waves, watching sea life and just taking a walk. We hope you come and stay and experience what we have enjoyed.

What makes this house unique

This house is a perfect place for people who want to spend time at the beach. The beach is only a short block away. It is a beautiful beach and wonderful for long walks and for all types of beach activities. The beach is not a crowded beach and is only for the locals in the area. The house itself is ideal if you are the type that wants to spend the night at home with BBQ on the outside deck with views of the beach, Plasma T.V. and a gourmet kitchen. Or if you like to go out at night the house is located 2 miles from Capitola, which is beach town loaded with lots of restaurants and shops. The Santa Cruz Boardwalk is located 3 miles and has activities for all generations. The benefit to staying at this house is the renovations, which allow you to be very comfortable and for the location to everything that Santa Cruz has to offer.

The house is centrally located to all the attractions in Santa Cruz.

Three miles away is the main attraction in Santa Cruz, the California Beach Boardwalk. The boardwalk has rides, events and attractions right on the beach. One mile away is Twin Lakes Beach. There you will find the Yacht Harbor, which offers beach volleyball, kayaks rentals and wonderful restaurants also on the beach. Two miles in the opposite direction is Capitola. Capitola is a quaint beach town, with many restaurants and boutique shops. Pleasure Point, which is a popular surf area and 41st Ave, which is filled with restaurants and surf shops, is 1 mile away.

Santa Cruz is apart of the Monterey Bay, which has endless possibilities for sight seeing. One of the most popular is the Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey and Carmel, which is 45 miles away.

There is one little restaurant, that I love, which is within walking distance. It is called the Aloha Grill and it is about a block away from the house. They serve Hawaiian food and have live music on certain nights. I have a welcome binder at the house that has information on all the great restaurants in the area.

If you like to go for walks, you can walk to Pleasure Point, it is a very popular surf spot. It’s located about one mile from the house, To get there get on East Cliff Drive, the road in between our house and the beach, take a left and walk along the shoreline until you see the cliffs. It is a pretty walk and at the very end you will end up at 41st Ave, were all the surf shops are located. On 41st Ave there is a great coffee place called Verve. I would suggest a early morning walk to Verve, via PleasurePoint. Or, in the morning, you can walk to Starbucks, 4 minutes away, grab your coffee and walk to Sunny Cove to have your coffee and watch the waves crash on the shore.

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

From the location, to the amenities, the home furnishings, and working with the owner-this house was the absolute perfect beach getaway for our family of 5! To begin, the house is set back from the street (with a gated yard-perfect for our two toddlers), creating a calm, quiet, peaceful retreat. We loved the outdoor shower, a must after a fun day at the beach, and the small "sand" room before you entered the house which held the great beach toys, boogie boards, and beach chairs-all provided by the owner. The beach is just a few blocks down the road and was not very busy at all, great sand, and even had tide pools we explored with the kiddos one morning. Inside the house is just as amazing as the outside. It is like Pottery Barn meets a Hawaiian beach house-so cute and really every amenity we needed: dishes, towels, linens, a Keurig! The beds were incredibly comfortable and the kids' room even had toys and movies to keep the littles entertained. The deck housed an amazing bbq and fire pit- both incredibly easy to use and a great feature-but the best part, the view! We were able to see whales while sipping our morning coffee. Finally, working with Lori was an absolute dream. She is very responsive and flexible-so wonderful to work with! We hope to come back to Hale Kai to make more memories! Thanks for a wonderful trip!

Great spot to enjoy the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a great stay, close walk to the beach and close to the boardwalk and other attractions. Clean and well equipped and loved the outside deck for s'mores at night! Would recommend and will look to book again.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

This house is very nice, clean, and comfortable. Just two bedrooms, but the living space if big enough, and the view and location were great. Definitely recommend! 😎?

A wonderful 40th birthday stay for the family!

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful house for a family. We stayed here for my husband's 40th birthday. It has a nice view of the beach, but may be a long walk for toddlers. It had everything we needed except a few small kitchen items as we had a clambake dinner for the birthday feast. Otherwise, it was a wonderful stay and super easy. We were able to just enjoy ourselves and relax at the end of each day. There were games, a safe place for kids to play in front, and a kid friendly room to stay. A fire pit for the adults to enjoy before bed with a nice glass of wine, and ample space to enjoy a family dinner. There were beach towels and laundry available. I would stay here again.
