You've found the perfect house. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms PLUS two private hot outdoor showers make this the best place to stay for larger family groups. It works great for corporate retreats too!
This large sunny house is the perfect location for a Santa Cruz getaway. Located on a quiet residential street in an exclusive neighborhood, it is just five hundred feet to Sunny Cove beach, known by locals for boogie boarding and skim boarding. The Monterey peninsula and it's twinkling lights are visible across the bay from the family room and spacious deck. The house is walking distance to coffee, market, restaurants, a fantastic farmer's market and the harbor, and easy biking distance to the Boardwalk or Capitola. Golf, wine tasting, yoga, rock climbing, kayaking, paddle-boarding and sailing are available nearby.
Not only does our house have location, location, location, there is plenty of room with nearly 5,000 square feet of living space. It is the perfect vacation house to share with another family (or two). There are two rooms with queen beds (one with an ocean view), two rooms with king beds, a small room with a bunk bed, and a very large room that sleeps 6 in bunk beds. There is an upstairs family room with fireplace and ocean view, and another family room downstairs with fireplace and TV. There is also a game room with a bar.
The backyard has a large concrete play area with basketball court which is also great for roller hockey or skateboarding. Balconies from the bedrooms allow for great views of sunsets.
We are a licensed Santa Cruz rental property and our Transient Occupancy Registration Certificate number is #CO00347.
We are a family of five with three boys who live, work, and go to school only 45 minutes away from Santa Cruz. Our boys have grown up spending their favorite times at this house.
Amber Shaw purchased this house in 2005
We like the neighborhood feel of Sunny Cove beach and the proximity to other beaches for walking, skim boarding, boogie boarding and surfing. Most everywhere you want to go from here is a walk, bike ride or short drive away.
With a unique layout of private quiet spaces and gathering areas, our home is absolutely perfect for a large family, a family reunion, or a working retreat. Nothing can beat the view of the ocean from the deck. If you're lucky and there is no fog, the lights of Monterey twinkle across the Bay. It's magical.
It's a bit hard finding a place to accommodate my huge family, but when we found this listing we knew it was perfect. Amber was so helpful and very quick to respond to emails. The house is gorgeous and is just steps away from the beach. Definitely perfect for a relaxing worry free stay. There's so much to do inside the house as well. The ping pong/pool table was a definite hotspot during our weekend. This house is absolutely at the top of our list if we have another family reunion.
Great place for my family with four different households! Always something to do and places to go. Everything is there to use and family needs are met. We were able to relax and be worry free. Thanks for the memories! Already booked for next year! Just watch out for those sneaky Mosquitos! Come prepared!
The house easily accommodated our 3 families. Giving us lots of space. Great rooms on 2 floors that we could watch TV or play games and not wake up the babies. Everyone loved it from the toddlers to the adults! It was in a great location with a beautiful view of the ocean. Best family vacation ever!
My girlfriends and I spent the weekend in this amazing house to celebrate a milestone birthday. There were 12 of us and it was absolutely perfect. The pictures don't do it justice! It's incredibly spacious and comfortable, with lots of beds and bathrooms and nooks for relaxing. The large living room and adjoining outdoor deck were the focal point for the group, for meals, reading, relaxing and a party. We didn't even use the formal dining room the downstairs living room or pool table. With the beach so close we took lots of walks and the weather was nice enough for a dip in the ocean. The house was incredibly well stocked. My sister did most of the cooking throughout the weekend and kept commenting on how well stocked the kitchen was. The beds, sheets and towels were high quality. The location is great. Although we mostly stuck around the house and beach, we hiked at Wilder Ranch State Park, which is only about 15 minutes away, had dinner in town one night and enjoyed the Sunday farmer's market (across the street). The owners were a pleasure to work with. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.
We just got back from a long weekend celebrating our mother's 80th BD!! 7 siblings and all the kids and in laws that could make it came This HOME is superb! I almost don't want to give it such a rave review for fear it will never be available for us in the future due to being booked solid. The owners provided for everything! They put lots of thought in what we renters need while traveling-- bath towels, beach towels, toilet paper, even spices , kitchen towels and so much more there is even shampoo and soap in every bathroom It is perfect for a large party lots of space to hang and if you have all the age groups from tots to teens to the old folks !!There are 2 more beds than advertised which worked out well for us cause 2 college nephews joined us last minute--The gigantic patio is perfect for grilling and just enjoying each other's company all evening , breakfast whatever. No need to look further this is the house you want to rent!! Love the mix of the old and new house was built in 1982 but it is obvious they are in the process of doing more updating ( pink tile broken upstairs but I am sure will be updated soon) The sports court out back keeps the teens busy ...just cannot say enough great things about this house !!! Phenomenal
The layout of the house is perfect for a family reunion. We had twelve adults with kids in tow. The central living area allowed everyone to hang out and eat together (plenty of seating). There are also nooks throughout the house where each can enjoy their personal space. The view from the deck and living room is ideal (we saw dolphins swim by on one of the mornings from there). Location was great. We highly recommend this vacation rental!
Besides the Boardwalk and the usual tourist stuff, there's a lot going on in the neighborhood. Rent bikes, take surfing lessons, go kayaking or try paddle boarding, all nearby. Our beach is one of the few that allows fires! Have a bonfire or roast marshmallows. Take a cruise on the Chardonnay II, a 70-foot sailing yacht that departs from the harbor, a short drive away. Watch Wednesday Night boat races or check out the Thursday Night Beach BBQ at the Crow's Nest (summer only).
