About Rob

We are a happy family of 5 living in the San Francisco Bay Area. We love to spend time at our beautiful beach house, but busy lives sometimes get in the way and are happy to share our home with you!

Rob purchased this house in 2004

Why Rob chose Central Coast

We have owned this home for 13 years and have made amazing memories here. The home is newly remodeled and is clean and comfortable. It is literally steps from beautiful Sunny Cove Beach. Our new favorite spot is the roof top deck that boast amazing ocean views. You'll want to grab a glass a wine and just watch and listen to the waves hitting the shore.

What makes this house unique

The prime location, beautiful views and the best beach in Santa Cruz make this home your next favorite vacation!

House is recently remodeled and very nice open floor plan. It looks so much smaller from the photos

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic time in this house. It's close to the beach, easy walk. We saw dolphins in the early morning on our walks around the area. We enjoyed taking the kids to the boardwalk for putt putt and rides...we found out too late that if you take an empty Pepsi product on Wednesday or Thursday there's a big discount for wristband all day rides. We also enjoyed Raging Waters Park in San Jose. There's lots to do in the area. 3 of the guys went golfing at Black Horse. The Carmel-Monterey drive is also fantastic. We will definitely rent this house again when we come back to the area. You need to bring blow dryer and iron with you. But everything else is provided, from paper products, cleaning products to plates, pots, coffee maker, blender toaster, coffee maker and washer and dryer. It was also spotless! I also contacted the owners Rob and Stacy and I had immediate answers to my questions.

Great vacation home by the beach

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation house. Huge kitchen, steps to the beach, nice neighborhood, very clean and well maintained, the owner answered all my questions and was easy to deal with, the house has a big deck with an ocean view. It was a special home for a family gathering. We hope to stay here again.
