My husband and I have finally fulfilled our long term goal of moving to Santa Cruz and we could not be happier. We are enjoying walking along West Cliff Dr. everyday, gardening, taking art classes, the multitude of restaurants that this city offers and much more. After many years of craziness with kids and a husband who was in business for himself, this slower pace is a very welcome change.
Lauren purchased this House in 2009
Why Lauren chose Santa Cruz
My husband Rick and I bought this property because we knew that we would regret it for the rest of our lives if we didn't. The opportunity of a location this great within walking distance of so much, plus the bonus of a beautiful view was too much to pass up. In fact, I wasn't aware, but my husband had been eyeballing this side of this particular street for years. Our house is built over a ravine so the back yard has a panoramic view of open space, the San Lorenzo River, and the Boardwalk.
What makes this House unique
We enjoy walking to Boardwalk, the wharf, Seabright beach, the yacht harbor, Java Junction for coffee, Linda's Seabreeze cafe for breakfast, Betty's Burgers for any kind of burger you want, the Seabright Brewery for a beer, and the local museum in Seabright for a little bit of native history. We also enjoy bringing our bikes down to the path that runs along the San Lorenzo River and taking it into downtown Santa Cruz.

Perfect Santa Cruz vacation home and location!
This home and location is wonderful. Perfect location to so much, beach's boardwalk, food, shopping .....couldn't have asked for anything better.
Owner was very responsive to any questions we had and her promptness was remarkable.
Great neighborhood. Short walk or drive to anything you could want.
Thank you Lauren for allowing us to stay at your fantastic home.
Grandpa and I, with daughter, son-in-law and two toddler grandchildren had a great time here. Lots of space and comfortable furniture. I will say, I didn't give the stay five stars because some of the kitchen cabinets are in bad shape in that some drawers don't have stops and come too far out and some of the doors are not attached and come half way off. This made cooking not so fun! Also, the bathtubs were super slippery. Our bed was downstairs and sort of felt like we were sleeping on a giant marshmallow. Way too soft for us and the pillows were more like bolsters, that is too hard. The ad also says "five houses away from Boardwalk," and this was not very accurate. We walked to the Boardwalk and it was more like a mile and not all on good sidewalk, so not an easy walk with toddlers, but doable. Even so, we did enjoy staying at this place, but probably would not book it again because of the afore mentioned problems.
Welcoming & Spacious!!
What an amazing place for our family wedding trip!! The house was exactly what we hoped it would be. The neighborhood was peaceful and we all enjoyed our walks to the local restaurants and stores. Lauren & Richard were amazing hosts and the house was in fantastic shape with all of the amenities to make you feel right at home. Thank you again - we LOVED it!!!
Beautiful home, perfect location! Perfect for our group needs! Stocked with absolutely everything we could have possibly needed for a great weekend away!
Beautiful Santa Cruz Rental Home
We really love it.
It’s located near the Boardwalk.
We would definitely rent it again.
The ideal location!
We visited Santa Cruz for the weekend and wanted to be close to the Boardwalk as well as the beach. This is the ideal location! The TV room downstairs was a great spot for the kids and having three bedrooms was so convenient. The outdoor patios (upstairs and down) were great for our evening dinner and sitting by the fire pit. We hope to return again in the future.
We are located in the Seabright area of Santa Cruz between the Boardwalk and the Yacht Harbor. From this location you have an easy walk to Boardwalk, the beach, the yacht harbor, and downtown Santa Cruz and Seabright. Once you unpack and stock the house with food you can pretty much leave your car parked for the remainder of your stay.
