Clean, cozy, comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and another couple shared this house for a short getaway in Santa Cruz recently. It was the perfect place for us to stay. The house is very inviting with its beautiful landscaping, hot tub and comfortable beds. It is about a five minute drive to the Boardwalk and a short cab ride to the downtown area where there are great restaurants and nightlife. All in all I would definitely recommend this house and would stay there again on my next trip to Santa Cruz.

Serenity by the Sea!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem! I just spent 5 nights at this cozy, charming beach cottage. Could not have been more perfect! I live in Santa Cruz but needed a dog friendly place to rent while some work was being done on my home. This cottage has the perfect balance of being so tastefully, elegantly decorated while still being so very comfortable. It was immaculate, had all the comforts of home and was a short lovely stroll to the beach and restaurants. The backyard is divine! So private with lovey brick patio, grass area, dining, fire pit, hot tub. So special you don't won't to leave. Really peaceful - my dogs were safe and secure from the moment I walked in - we could all relax. The front is gated and also so safe and pretty. Nice spot to have coffee. Everything you need is in the kitchen. I found it very easy to cook - small but all right at your finger tips. Everything was top quality. With or without dogs a great spot to enjoy Santa Cruz. The owner and staff were very responsive and nice to deal with. Loved it!

Cozy, welcoming charm

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was exactly what my brother, sister, and I needed for our family reunion. It supplied everything we needed for comfort and entertainment, including three TVS, plus the bonus of a marvelous hottub, firepit, and comfy lounge chairs in the private garden behind the house. With the yacht harbor, beach, and good food within walking distance, and the wharf and amusement park close-by, we could totally relax without spending much time looking for things to do. We recommend it highly, and look forward to returning there soon.

Very cute in a great neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

This place was clean and well-kept, with a great yard and hot tub. Perfect for a small dog, with a lot of fence-in outdoor space. I would definitely stay there again.

Had a great stay!

  • 4 of 5

It was a lovely and quaint spot. My family and I were there for 2 nights and it was great for a quick getaway from the city. Everything was very clean, tidy and easy to find. There was a nice breeze at night and we were able to keep the place cool with the windows open. The kitchen was stocked with all the essentials to cook with. The street was quiet during the day and night. I would recommend!

Quaint, comfortable and private.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is centrally located. It has a private backyard and a separate gated front yard that also offers privacy. It has everything you need while in a home-away from home. The beach is maybe 2 blocks away. The owners are easy to deal with. Totally enjoyed it.
