Property type cottage

Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

*Please note: All summer rentals begin on FRIDAY only. (Summer weekdays - M thru TH - available only if prior weekend is already rented.) See "RATES notes".

Completely remodeled - upscale one bedroom sunlit retreat just steps (literally!) off of Santa Cruz's #1 beach.

Our cottage and furnishings are bright, fresh, new and clean!

It is fully furnished, down to the last wine goblet. You will find everything that you need for a relaxing getaway - gourmet kitchen, quality linens, bath and beach towels, gas fireplace, DSL Wireless Internet, satellite/plasma TV, VCR or DVD (including library), stereo/CD player, and a safe for valuables while you are away.

Guests will also enjoy a separate studio with plenty of space to store any personal items, along with a washer/dryer, bikes, beach chairs, beach umbrella, and an exquisitely landscaped exterior patio with shower, patio seating and gas BBQ Grill. The cottage is perfect for 2, but will sleep 4 with the comfortable hide abed in the living room.

Seabright Beach (also known as Castle Beach) is part of Twin Lakes State Beach. It was voted #1 by the locals, and is a top rated, five star beach in National publications. It is a wide strand of beautiful, soft sand that is bordered on the west by the mouth of the San Lorenzo River and Santa Cruz Boardwalk, and to the east by the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor. It is excellent for family outings, beachcombing, jogging, swimming, body surfing, skim boarding, volleyball, evening bonfires and viewing incredible sunsets.

From the cottage, it is just a short scenic stroll to the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor, or to the Historic Santa Cruz Boardwalk via the train trestle, yet it is separated from all of the hubbub! And the local neighborhood of Seabright itself is known for its restaurants, cafes, coffee houses and Natural History Museum with a climbing whale - all nestled amongst the beach bungalows with a Victorian backdrop. (Both the neighborhood, and Seabright Beach are consistently voted among the best by the Santa Cruz locals.) And just a quick bike ride or a little longer walk finds you in the infamous downtown area - where you will find an eclectic mix of restaurants, shops, theatres and "local entertainment".

Our Romantic Seabright Cottage is located just steps to the beach in a quiet neighborhood, yet it is the perfect gateway for all that Santa Cruz has to offer - including world class surfing, sailing, kayaking, fishing, cycling, golfing, premium wine tasting and breweries, CA State Parks, the Historic Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk..............Let us be part of your vacation memories!

PLEASE NOTE: SUMMER RENTALS BEGIN ON FRIDAY. See rates page.

Beautiful, comfortable beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

This adorable little beach cottage is tastefully appointed and extremely comfortable. It is very well maintained. It is a short 2-minute walk to Seabright Beach, which is visible from the cottage. It's location in Santa Cruz is very convenient to nearby attractions like the Boardwalk and Fish Pier. I highly recommend it and would definitely stay here again.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Being a very picky person, I always try to temper my expectations when approaching a VRBO check in. This property exceeded my expectations, the attention to detail is absolutely amazing. I felt like I was at home, Bosch, Jenn Aire, Toto. What would I change? Nothing!!!

Great for young families!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is small but exactly as described. It is perfect for a family with young kids- the beach is 1/2 block away. The house has chairs, umbrellas even sand toys! You can easily access the bike path to beautiful W. Cliff drive. I recommend riding to Kelly's French bakery on Swift street for delicious coffee and pasteries. It was perfect for a 3

Day weekend. We can't wait to come back.

Excellent vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautiful, inside and out. Everything was accessible and clearly labeled. We enjoyed walking down to the beach and playing in the sand with my year old grandbaby.
