Property description

This charming cottage, perfect for a romantic getaway or a family vacation, is located on a quiet cul-de-sac just steps from the 26th Avenue and Moran Lake Beaches. Beachbreak Bungalow is a wonderful hideaway for your vacation in Santa Cruz.

Moran Lake Beach & 26th Avenue Beach are a two minute walk down a serene nature trail, along a beautiful grove of Eucalyptus Trees -- the perfect spot for those seeking solace on a huge boulder, pelicans and crashing waves, family-time building sandcastles, swimming in the surf, or a beautiful sunset stroll.

The home has 3 bedrooms and 1 bath, with a queen sized bed in the master, a double bed in the 2nd bedroom, and a double futon bed in the third bedroom. The bathroom has a shower with a full bathtub. There is also an outdoor shower with hot water - great for rinsing off after a trip to the beach, and the kids always love it!

The large, beautifully lanscaped backyard is wonderful for a relaxing family BBQ where you can enjoy the company of family and friends or just relax and listen to the sound of the waves. The house is immaculately clean and well furnished with everything you need when you want to get away from it all.

Downtown Capitola with it's lively beachside restaurants and shopping is a short 5 minute drive as is the Santa Cruz Harbor with it's many boating activites. This the perfect central location for your trip to Santa Cruz!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We love the beach and have spent many summers there together as a family over the years. We feel like any trip to Santa Cruz should include our canine companions since they are part of the family.

Why the Owner Chose Opal Cliffs, CA, USA:
Nothing compares to the serenity and beauty of the beach, so we do our best to spend as much time there as possible. This gem of a cottage caught our eye when we were dreaming of owning a beach house and somehow it magically worked out and become ours. It brings us much joy and pleasure and we are happy to share it with our guests.
