Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Andre has lived in Santa Cruz most of his life and I have lived here for almost thirty years. We enjoy living in this area because there is so much to offer. We go to the beach as often as possible with our two children.We also enjoy riding our bikes around town to the many wonderful places to see and enjoy. Water sports are definitely in the mix of our daily lives. Surfing, sailing, outrigger paddling and stand up paddling in Santa Cruz are popular things to do.

Why the Owner Chose Opal Cliffs, CA, USA:
We built the house for ourselves to live in and lived there for eight years until we grew out of it when our kids needed their own rooms.The house is perfectly set up for small families or a couple. We thought it would be a great vacation house and it has worked out nicely for our guests. Many of them return year after year and it is fun see their families grow.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is located a block up from one of the best beaches in Santa Cruz.It has a deluxe Dimension One spa, outdoor shower, beautifully landscaped yard, privacy plantings surrounding the property, bikes and a baby jogger for guests to use and the inside is immaculately maintained. We live next to the house and do all the maintenance and cleaning. If anything needed we are close by to help out.
