Everything was perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Seabright. From the minute you walked in the Red Door, you felt at home. It has everything you need for a stay at the beach. Garden was very inviting and the Roses were beautiful. Spent everyday on the beach and a walk to the boardwalk for lunch or Dinner. Finishing the time with a drive to the Red Woods completed a wonderful week. Must be experienced to appreciated he time Laurie has put in this house to make it a Home.

Comfortable home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I had a terrific stay at this property. Laurie, the owner, checked in with us to make sure we were comfortable, and shared a little of the history of this home. She was very friendly and accommodating, but never intruded. The home was nicely decorated and felt very warm and inviting. The cliff above the beach is just a few steps away, and beach access was only about a one block walk. You can also walk to the Boardwalk in about 10 minutes. We loved the location and the home, and intend to book here again.

The perfect cottage by the perfect sea

  • 5 of 5

This was not my first time in this cottage. My extended family has rented it before; it's our favorite getaway spot. One door down from the exquisite Seabright beach, the cottage is a home. The kitchen is spacious and perfect for family meals. You can walk to the boardwalk, and you fall asleep at night to the sounds of the waves, the sea lions, and the roller coaster screamers faintly in the distance. It's really a slice of heaven and I can't wait to come back. We fly all the way across the country just to stay here. We'll never take any other vacation.

Car: not necessary

Our property is the perfect location in Santa Cruz. No need for your car once you arrive. We have great restaurants, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, and the Wharf that are an easy and relaxing walk away. Santa Cruz now has "Jump Bikes" available! They are inexpensive to rent and are lots of fun!
