Watsonville Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Beachfront Townhouse, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Hello guests.

We hope you enjoy our beautiful luxury oceanfront townhouse on the sand at La Selva Beach. Located just south of Santa Cruz, we affectionately call it “Hello, Beachhouse”. Luxurious, comfy and newly renovated top to bottom, it features all the amenities you would expect for a wonderful vacation on the beach. This 2 level, 2 bedroom, 2 bath oceanfront townhouse sleeps 6 and is fully furnished right down to the fluffy white towels and linens.

Hello bed.

Each bedroom features your own ocean view complete with ocean breeze. The new pillow-top beds feature a king in one bedroom, and two extra long twins that can be made into a king in the other bedroom…just let us know your preference. One of the bedrooms doubles as a library with enough summer books to keep you enthralled for the entire vacation. Loads of closet space, a flat-screen HD cable TV, full bath, and washer & dryer complete the bedroom level.

Hello view.

Walking down the stairs to the main floor will take your breath away. There is nothing between you and the ocean! Walk through the living room onto the deck and breath the sea air. The beach is just down the stairs.

Hello bath.

After your beach walks, the pebble floor bathroom on the main floor is perfect for a quick shower. The full bath on the upper level has a tub and mirror enough for all to get ready.

Hello entertainment.

The living room sofa turns into a queen sleeper, thanks to one of Crate and Barrel’s best designs. Whether you want to curl up or open the bed to relax, you will love the 40” flat screen HDTV with Xfinity for all your favorite movies, shows and sports. We also have Xfinity wireless for your convenience.

Hello kitchen.

The dining area seats 6 to 8 comfortably with a spectacular ocean view.

Your kitchen has it all, including new counter tops and large stainless sink. The dishwasher, full-size refrigerator, gas stove and microwave are available just in case you feel like cooking. There is service for 8 in flatware, dishes, and plenty of glassware for cocktails…and meals. A blender, toaster, Keurig style coffee maker, and gourmet cookware give you options for any meal choices.

Hello deck.

Is there anything better than sitting back in a comfy deck chair, sipping your beverage of choice and watching the surfers, seals and pelicans enjoy your favorite front yard...the beach? The cable rail deck system lets you see for miles and miles, Monterey to your left and Santa Cruz to your right. Is it time to start the BBQ and enjoy the sunset?

Hello beach.

This is what sets us apart from other vacation rentals. We are your luxury ocean-side, beachfront rental. You just can’t beat this location morning, noon or night.

A morning run, a ride on the perfect wave, a beach walk and discovery of a unique seashell, building the biggest sand castle ever, lounging on the beach while catching up with family or friends.

The sound of the rolling waves lull you to sleep , the salt sea air, an evening beach fire, a good book, what could be more perfect?

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Cris,

We had an absolutely amazing time! It was so hard to come back to reality after 8 beautiful days at the beach! The house looked great!! Everything worked properly. We cooked almost every night and found the kitchen to be stocked with all the necessities. The BBQ was great. We had gorgeous weather for 6 of the 8 days. We watched whales from the deck for about an hour on Friday directly in front of us and so close to shore. Truly astonishing to see since I have only seen whales in Alaska. I can't say one bad thing about our stay...well except having it end!

We look forward to making this an annual tradition as our son said it perfectly... "Wow I think we should do this every year."

Thank you again,

My family and I had a wonderful time. The view was beautiful and it was so relaxing. The house is beautiful. Pretty much every day we were there and several times during the day we saw whales, dolphins and otters. I highly recommend this rental. The owner Cris was very nice and made sure we had all the information on places to eat and purchase items.

Excellent beach house

I stayed here by myself for a week. Very quiet, great views. Home is very clean and in great condition. Cris was great to communicate with prior at arriving. Nice place to get away and unwind.

A cute little paradise

  • 5 of 5

Wow, my husband and I have been to California many times, stayed at a variety of hotels and homeaways, but this is the best place we have ever stayed at. Fully stocked kitchen, spacious yet cozy, cute decor, and instant beach access! If you need a place to ruminate on life, relax, talk, stare at the ocean in the mornings - this is the place for you!

Best find thus far on VRBO!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I cannot say enough great things about this property. This was our 2nd trip, and definitely far from our last.

The posting really lives up to, and far exceeds what is described. The views off the deck and from down on La Selva Beach are what are depicted on postcards. The house itself is very well maintained (we have yet to find anything broken, not functioning, etc.), and really does offer all the day to day necessities we need for us to walk in unpack, unload our groceries & commence vacationing. Our stays have been in March, and August and the weather has been perfect during each - sun, light breezes (not the bone chilling winds found further North up the coast), and fine beach sand in which our kids love to spend the day. We all enjoyed making a game of spotting the dolphins, sea otters & sea lions passing by or weaving their way through the surf. We haven’t seen any whales yet, but all the more reason to return A.S.A.P. Bonfires on the beach at night are another relaxing way to enjoy a cocktail while seeing the stars out above the crashing waves.

The house is convenient to Santa Cruz’s sights and everything between there & Watsonville (where we head to for most of our shopping). Aptos, & Capitola offer some quaint stops (including Gayle’s Bakery - great baked goods!). UCSC’S Seymour Marine Discovery Center was a highlight for our kiddos. Santa Cruz itself is only ten minutes up the highway. We spent a day heading the other direction down to Monterey and the world renowned aquarium there. Our family loves being located so close to it all, but not actually in the crowded, touristy-ness of Santa Cruz or Monterey.

Cris was a blessing to hear from both times. She bent over backward to help us extend our stay an extra three days (best idea ever) to give us a full week enjoying this place & recharging ourselves.

Our Son & his new Bride live & work in Silicon Valley. We wanted to visit and also give them an easy to get to mini-vacation away from their daily hustle & bustle. This BeachHouse was terrific. Long beach walks, lots of conversation and preparing meals together. Cris was extraordinarily helpful and always available. This is a pretty special place with a stunning view. We'll be back.
