Beautiful quiet beach house with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

This is house is absolutely amazing. It was a wonderful place to take my two teenage children, my adult daughter and my dad. There was plenty of room and all of the beds were extra comfortable! The bathrooms were gorgeous and recently remodeled. The house had amazing views of the ocean and the valley off of both decks. The kitchen was very functional and had everything we needed which was perfect since we cooked in every night for dinner. The propane stove in the living room was a special treat especially because our week was pretty chilly. This house had everything I was hoping for and more..We have stayed at Pajaro in the condos but this was a whole new wonderful experience. The owner was super easy to work with and got back to us right away! I can't wait to go back next year!

The inside is Great !!

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable and cozy, are the two words that best desçribe this home ...there are wonderful places to sit both inside and out. Views of the valley and the ocean. Small well equipped kitchen, nicely renovated bathrooms, bright light filled living area with tall ceilings. Only a few things missing, food storage containers, hand mixer, iron and the telephone didn't work ??

Roomy, yet cozy home with the relaxing beach just steps away. Best vacation yet!

  • 5 of 5

What a relaxing, interesting place to call home for a week! This lovely beach home provided the privacy of a club, but within minutes of several tourist attractions. It was the right mix for our family to enjoy long walks on the private, uncrowded beach morning, noon and night. Sand dollars galore on the beach at low tide. Super fun in the surf with the kids! Took in the rides and games of the Santa Cruz Boardwalk one day and the cute shops of Capitola the next. On our next trip, we will explore the Monterey Aquarium and kayaking at Moss Point. From the mom's point of view, this home was a winner! The open kitchen made for easy cooking and serving, while Netflix was greatly appreciated by the kids. Plenty of dishes, glasses and silverware. Dishwasher, coffee pot, and laundry facilities were used often. The bathrooms were modern and relaxing. Super cute!

Sunrises on the deck overlooking the valley were thought-provoking, while sunsets on the beach were inspiring and relaxing. S'mores on the beach was a highlight for our grandchildren. Overall, this was our best family vacation yet! Cannot say enough about how relaxing this beach home was for our family. There was plenty of room for our personalities, while providing quality together time.

Each of the 3 decks/porches had plenty of comfortable seating for several people. In addition, there were enough beach toys to entertain the children. 2 beach chairs came in handy for the evening fires. There was an ukulele (with playing instructions) for the musically inclined. The little surprises like finding an ukulele made the home interesting and fun.

Inside, the furniture and beds were very comfortable and well dressed. Pillows and blankets galore! The table with the tic-tac-toe game made from rocks was delightful and used frequently. The internet service was solid and appreciated. Overall, this beach home is open, airy, clean and inviting. Best vacation ever for those of us who appreciate private beaches and exploring local attractions!

Everything you need to enjoy your beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This stylish, simple house has everything a family or group of friends could need for an amazing beach trip. Imagine a house situated with green farmland on one side, and blue ocean on the other. This is that house. We were struck by the cleanliness, the updated kitchen and bathrooms, the group-friendly living room, and the oh-so-quiet bedrooms (the downstairs friends couldn't hear the crying baby in the upstairs bedroom at all). And there are decks on both sides of the house! The beach is just a few steps away, with great waves for boogie boarding. The beach wasn't crowded when we were there -- just a few fishermen and some couples strolling...and a few enthusiastic dogs. We were honestly heartbroken to have to leave, and we can't WAIT to book our next stay.

Fabulous weekend

  • 5 of 5

The inside of the house is recently renovated, lots of space for our group of 8. The beach is a few short feet away and so relaxing. The deck is the perfect place to sit and watch sunsets with a drink or enjoy early morning sunshine with a cup of coffee. Clean and easy to get to. We drove in to Monterey the first night for dinner and the aquarium the second day. Little bit of a long drive for those, but worth it as this was a less expensive option than being right in town.

Perfect beach house for our family

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay, with lots of beach time, aquarium time, and shared family time for our three generations. We loved the views both to the east and to the west, and the new stove made the great room cozy and inviting. We'll definitely be back!
