Lots of room and great location

  • 4 of 5

Great space for a large family or group of friends. We really enjoyed our stay. You can't beat the location. Although the kitchen is very small, it is well equipped. This property is older and could use some updating, but is very comfortable and clean. It is within walking distance to the beach and several places to eat. Days Market is close too for basic grocery needs. We would definitely stay here again!

Great location and size

  • 4 of 5

I had a recent stay at the house in Santa Cruz with 6 adults, 3 kids and one infant. It was great, the size is bigger than you might expect from the posting. The place was great for having the kids, as there was a side room for them to sleep in connected to the bedrooms downstairs and a little den off the main living area where we let them watch cartoons while we did our own thing. It was also a very short walk to the beach and short drives to all the things you might want to do in the area. I think this place is great, and the only reason I gave it 4 stars is that in one of the rooms downstairs you can hear a lot of noise from people walking on the floor above. If everyone goes to sleep and gets up at the same time, it will not bother anyone, but the kids were down there and going to sleep a lot earlier than us and I think the noise bothered them a little.

Harbor House was the perfect place for a group of lady friends to spend the weekend enjoying each other's company and celebrating some birthdays. Plenty of comfortable sleeping spaces, enough bathrooms, and seating areas in the living, dining, and outdoor spaces. The deck overlooking the yacht harbor was a perfect, peaceful place to enjoy a glass of wine, each other's company, and the beautiful view. It was a short, easy walk to the Harbor and the beach, and a quick drive to the Crow's Nest for dinner - or into the downtown area. We loved our time here!

Remembering our husband, dad and grandpa

  • 4 of 5

We had the best time staying at the Harbor House over Memorial Day weekend. We were there to celebrate the life of the main man of our family. His wife, children, grandchildren and great grand children all gathered to enjoy each other, and we did, as he would have wanted. This is a wonderful vacation property with plenty of room to spread out. Diana was always available to answer any questions and on the day we left there was a plumbing problem in the kitchen, which was immediately addressed for the next renters. Our deposit was returned very timely. I would and hope to, rent the Harbor House again. Our whole family enjoyed it very much.

Perfect spot for a group celebration!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at the Harbor House. The Schillerstroms were so accommodating, allowing us to come early if we needed to, and leaving late on Sunday to enjoy Mother's Day! My daughter celebrated her 18th birthday with her girlfriends, and even though the weather wasn't the best, they loved walking to the lighthouse, and sitting on the deck... even the fireplace added to the atmosphere. Everyone loved the layout. There was plenty of space and comfortable beds.

Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this harbor getaway for my sisters 49th birthday weekend! It was so close to the beach, Aldo's and The Crows Nest! Definitely bring bikes to ride around the harbor and the cliffs. The water taxi was really fun too. Our kids loved having their own space downstairs. So much room for our 4 families with kids. Bonus loft was really fun!
