House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 and 1/2 Bath, (Sleeps 6)
Quiet, comfortable family home in beautiful La Selva Beach. Play on the beach, walk on the bluff, play games or just relax and read a book by the fire. Our home is just a short walk through a private gate to a broad sandy beach. The beach joins Manresa State Beach to the south and is ideal for long walks, surfing, skim boarding, frisbee, and playing in the sand.
After a day at the beach, enjoy a barbecue on the deck or cook in our small, but fully stocked kitchen. The open family room has a wood stove and plenty of wood for fires, lots of games and a variety of books to read during your stay.
There is a sweet little playground down the single lane road, with a basketball court, swings and play equipment. Around the corner, the bluff offers a panoramic view of all of Monterey Bay.
The house has three bedrooms -- one with a queen bed, one with a double bed, and the third smaller bedroom most suitable for kids, with a small built in twin bed and a day bed with a trundle. The furnishings are simple and casual.
The little town of La Selva Beach is just twelve miles south of Santa Cruz, convenient to several state parks, the University of California at Santa Cruz and the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Monterey, and its wonderful Aquarium, is just a 40 minute drive to the south.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Like staying in a cabin...
A quiet place to disconnect from work and enjoy loved ones. Easy access to walking and the beach makes for a restorative time in nature. Plenty of interesting books and games on hand to amuse the curious thinkers and travelers among us. Would be very happy to stay here again.
Comfortable and relaxing
Our stay at Sue's was like staying at a family home - comfortable and unpretentious. All the essentials were provided, with the highlight being private beach access. We enjoyed the quietude of La Selva and would definitely return. Thank you Sue.
Cute and convenient
We had a great stay! We were in town for the weekend. The house was stocked with all the necessities. We were able to take a nice stroll down to the beach and around the block. After the graduation we ordered take out and had a nice little get together with family and a few of my cousins friends. We spent lots of time out in the yard playing ladder ball! It's an older house with lots of personality. I do recommend opening all the windows when you first come in to get some fresh air. Sue was very sweet and provided detailed information about the house. She even personalized the letters and emails throughout our conversations. I recommend this little gem !
This precious, peaceful home in beautiful LaSelva Beach is our very favorite place to gather and relax. We sisters, from CA, NC, TN, have made it a yearly "get away" (for many years) to spend time together, go for long walks on the wonderful secluded, private beach, explore nearby towns, and have fun shopping! It's a special time for us in a very special place. Thanks Sue! You are the very best❤️
Beautiful location, comfortable place
This was my first experience with VRBO (or any AirBNB-type thing) and it went nearly flawlessly.
Sue made things very easy for us with transactions, handover, and locations.
The house was clean as a whistle. It's not a modern designer executive home, but rather felt kind of like a cabin, but spacious, and with all of the bells and whistles. There was plenty of space, plenty of light, a new washer & dryer that we were glad to have the use of. Gas stove, good-tasting tap water. A beautiful deck and back yard. Lots of trees every place and the air smelled fresh and camplike. Could easily be a party house. There was a good & spacious fridge and even staples and sundries available. There was a private entrance to the miles of lovely beach just a couple blocks down the hill. Games and books and wifi - a perfect summer place. Everyone we met (and their dogs) was friendly.
The beds were a little bouncy & no pets allowed, but otherwise, it was pretty ideal.
I will do this again, for sure.
Sue is an outstanding hostess. Although we weren't able to meet her in person, she was SO nice (and responsive). I can't say enough, she is such a warm and kind person. Everything was seamless, and we couldn't have been more pleased. Thank you!!
