About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

This is truly a magical Beach Cottage and the quintessential beach experience in Santa Cruz. It includes a full boat of amenities right down to the boogie boards, bicycles, beach chairs and umbrellas. The Cottage with its expansive Open Ocean and Beach View,, sits above the shores of Moran Lagoon. Just a skip and a jump from main beaches, yet tucked away just enough for privacy. Wake up to the sounds of waves breaking. Have your first cup of coffee looking across a tree-lined lagoon to the Pacific Ocean. Walk down to the sandy beach on a paved and safe path for a swim. Then return home to warm up in the hot tub in your own private yard.

Nestled in eucalyptus trees next to Moran Lagoon, this home is truly one of a kind. The property has the feel of a private park, yet you're within easy walking distance to shops, movie theaters, Capitola Village, and even a mall. Stroll down the scenic East Cliff bike way. Watch surfers at world famous Pleasure Point. Our house is small and cozy. The yard is large and private. 850+ total square feet.


The extraordinary setting makes this home stand out from all the rest. The views are magical. We have kept our low rates for 6 Summers now, in light of of the current economy. This is a beloved private home and is used as a rental only in the summer months. The Cottage is well suited for both families and adults.
