About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6 to 8)

The Captains Quarters boasts one of the most spectacular oceanfront views in all of Santa Cruz! This is beachfront living at its best, with wrap around decks facing the Pacific - and dramatic Monterey Bay views from nearly every room in the house.

Located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and snugly situated overlooking one of Santa Cruz's best beaches, Twin Lakes Beach, this home is ideally situated to take in the unobstructed 260 degree ocean views from nearly every room. The Captain's Quarters is sure to be your oceanfront vacation destination!

This single family one story home has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, and two full kitchens for two or more families to enjoy. You will overlook the Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary from the game room featuring vaulted wood beam ceilings, a full size pool table, and walls of oversized picture windows. Generously spacious - with 160 feet of ocean frontage and enough parking for 4 cars, the Captain's Quarters can easily accommodate 3 generations in comfort. Direct beach access is via stairway just a few steps from the deck.

The Captain's Quarters is an excellent central location in Santa Cruz; located midway between the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and Capitola, and just a short walk to the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor. Buy your fresh fish locally from the Stagnero's boat on the Wharf, and enjoy preparing a meal in either fully equipped kitchen, or just relax and stop in at one the many restaurants and nearby nightlife that abound. Later, roast marsh mellows and stoke bonfires in the fire rings provided on the beach.

You will enjoy breathtaking sunrises from the master suite. At night, the lights of Monterey, Moss Landing and Pacific Grove glitter across the Bay. The Captain's Quarters provides the perfect opportunity to reconnect with your loved ones, or for that long awaited getaway - feel the stress melt away as you breathe in the ocean air, listen to sounds of the Bay and appreciate what Mother Nature intended.
