Amazing Home for Large Group

  • 5 of 5

I had a group stay the weekend for the Half Ironman in Santa Cruz. I was impressed with everything. Location, amenities, etc... They had 2 rollaway beds, which were super helpful. Patti was managing the property and was super helpful! They have beach cruisers with locks, a hot tub, a BBQ and plenty of things to do at the house. The location is AMAZING. We walked to Trader Joe's, the beach, and the Boardwalk!

Great House; Great Location; Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

If you want a really nice, kid-friendly house a hop, skip, and jump from the beach and the Santa Cruz Boardwalk amusement park, this house is fantastic. Kudos to Garrett (the owner) for making his house so kid-friendly. Lots of toys, games, and bikes; virtually no breakable stuff; and a solid wooden gate for the stairway. His property manager (Patti) is wonderful, too.

I'm sure we'll be back.
