About Katherine Hayes Rodriguez
We originally built the 'Seabright Cottage' as a gathering place for extended family and friends. My parents bought the lot in 1971, and the (very small) shack built there was demolished to make way for the new house 30 years later. As a vacation rental, our visitors get the opportunity to enjoy the ocean, beach, great places to eat, parks, Harbor, etc. as much as we do. We visit frequently from our home in Truckee. Our kids love the transition from the mountains to the ocean environment, and spend countless hours at Seabright Beach, a 5 minute walk from our house, and down the steps to the beach. We love our friendly little neighborhood; the well maintained gardens are colorful and a joy to inspect on our daily walks to the beach! The Boardwalk is also within walking distance. We enjoy visiting Steamer's Lane (close to the Boardwalk), where all of the locals surf. Occasionally, we go Downtown to hear music, see a movie, go to the bookstore, or browse the many little shops. My husband is a General Contractor and keeps the Cottage in ship shape. Our good friend, Debbie, is our on-site Manager, and lives close by. I spend time in my home office year round working on the maintenance, upkeep, and rentals of Seabright Cottage. In addition, I spend winters as a Ski instructor/Coach at Squaw Valley USA, and Instructor/Trainer for Disabled Sports USA at Alpine Meadows ski area. I enjoy providing our tenants with a great place to stay in Santa Cruz.

Great Location for Santa Cruz vacation
Home was very clean and well maintained. The breach is within walking distance with access at the end of the street. It is in a very quiet neighborhood which I tend to enjoy. I had two kids and two adults and there was plenty of room for us.
Pleasant comfortable home
This is a pleasant 2 bedroom + loft (with futon) clean well kept home with a modern interior in a safe comfortable neighborhood. It's a short walk to the ocean bluff and a 1.5 mile walk to Santa Cruz Boardwalk. We were pleased with all aspects of our stay.
Clean and Comfortable Cottage near the Beach
I just enjoyed my fourth weekend stay at Seabright cottage. The location is perfect, just two pleasant blocks from the beach and in easy walking distance of good restaurants (burgers to gourmet Italian), a brewery and cafe. The cottage is full of light and very comfortable. The owner and manager keep it maintained and sparkly clean. I slept very well on the comfortable beds. The best part for me is the neighborhood and easy access to the beach. The owner is very responsive and helpful. I highly recommend the Seabright Cottage.
2nd stay at wonderful Seabright cottage
I've enjoyed staying at this quaint, well kept cottage before and it didn't disappoint for our second visit! Our weekend get-a-way was just 2 nights and wished it could have been more! I ended up sleeping upstairs in the loft, on the futon and was quite comfortable there. We walked the short distance to the fabulous beach & was treated to a beautiful full moon. Walking distance to several nice restaurants too. Owner obviously takes pride in maintaining this cottage well. Absolutely no complaints. We'll be back.
Excellent location, clean, uncomfortable.
The location can't be beat. We walked everywhere, to the beach, to the boardwalk, to breakfast.
The communication with Katherine was decent. Not super fast but totally fine.
The house was clean. The queen mattress and the pillows were uncomfortable though. We both sank to the center of the mattress every night and my back hurt by the end of the trip. There was no soap provided in the shower which seems like an easy thing to provide but was inconvenient for us to get. There were no hooks for towels in the upstairs bathroom so we draped them over doors. Again, seems like an easy thing to fix. The furnishings were minimal and pretty cheap but sufficed just fine. I think with some minor changes, this place could be much nicer.
This place is decent but nothing amazing.
We appreciate any feedback that will help to improve our guest's experience.
Clean cottage in excellent location
We stayed here for a week, and were impressed how clean and well kept the cottage was, and the extra beach chairs and towels were great to have. It was only a couple of blocks to the cliffs with a staircase down to Castle Beach. There was construction going on both across the street and in the house in back, but this will probably be over soon. The back patio area was very small but sunny and warm.
Park your car and start your vacation! The 'Seabright Cottage' has many amenities within walking distance. Walk to the corner and enjoy a latte, visit the local brewery, or have a meal at one of the best breakfast places in town. The Harbor, Walton Lighthouse, animal & sea life, and boat watching are within 2 blocks. The Seabright community is an attractive, friendly neighborhood, and we walk just down the block to famous Seabright Beach! Many state parks and beaches are within a short driving distance. Plan time to walk to the local Natural History Museum, 2 blocks away. A full day is needed to spend at the Boardwalk, only 1 mile away. Santa Cruz is a central hub-bub for the music scene, with an active night-life in the downtown area. Enjoy unique shopping and excellent dining in the center of town! Other Activities: kayaking, boating, wildlife viewing, rock climbing, racquetball.
