Great size and location, all the toys and bikes for the kids were great!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved it and our holiday in Santa Cruz, Patti and her husband were brilliant sorting out any issues straight away as was Garrett who even responded to questions while on holiday himself. The location of the house is really good, walking distance to the beach and boardwalk but far enough away to be quiet.

Great Home, Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely and is very well situated for enjoying the beach, boardwalk and pretty much everything Santa Cruz has to offer. We were a group of 6 adults and had plenty of space - no one felt cramped or crowded. The property managers live just around the corner and were able to help us with a few minor things that were resolved quickly and with a smile. I would recommend this home!

Fabulous Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this home. The location is great and the house is fully stocked with everything you need. We took advantage of the bikes, double stroller, toddler bed, and kitchen equipment. The home is beautiful and clean. The owners have really thought of everything.

There is even a baby gate at the top of the stairs! Patti was extremely helpful and made sure we had a wonderful stay. Thank you!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great property with very nice accommodations. This was perfect for our annual family vacation. Patti greeted us on the day of our arrival and was quick to respond to any questions or needs we had. A quick walk away from the beach and the wharf. Would definitely stay here again!
