Overview

About the property

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

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.

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.

everything we wanted

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly what we wanted for our family vacation. We loved it.

The house was located 5 houses from beach.

The house had everything we needed for the beach included: 2 boggie boards, 4 beach chairs, sun umbrella, etc..

It also came with 2 bikes.

Nice outdoor BBQ.

The inside of the house was fully equipped and updated. It had everything we needed to cook/eat at home.

Quiet.

The house worked out great for us.

The only thing I would say is be ready for small. It is only one bedroom and a pull out couch (which was fine for us as our girls slept together).

The parking in the driveway worked out great for us....but we have a Vera Note....if you have a larger car you will have to find street parking.

Great vacation!

Super cute cottage with nice amenities and close to the beach.

  • 4 of 5

I would definitely stay here again. Parking was sort of an issue since the street parking is taken by beach goers and the driveway is very narrow and difficult to park in and then get out of the car.
