About Marie Lore
We love our beach house and are excited about sharing it with others. We hope they enjoy it as much as we have. We have been married for over 50 yrs. and have 3 married children and 7 grandchildren. Rick has been in the construction business for most of his life and I am an active real estate agent for Alain Pinel Realtors in Saratoga. We live in Los Gatos, a short trip over the hill from Santa Cruz.
Marie Lore purchased this Cottage in 1990
Why Marie Lore chose Eastside Santa Cruz
We bought this home many years ago as a rental for college students. We always hoped we would be able to rebuild it for ourselves in the future. It was a great dream come true when we completed the remodel.
What makes this Cottage unique
We love that we can walk everywhere from this home. The popular Twin Lakes beach is just a short block away. Bon fires light up the beach in the evening, sail boat races can be viewed from our deck, and lively beach volley ball games are a common occurrence. Don't miss the ukelele concert on Saturday mornings in front of the Java Junction. There are excellent restaurants within walking distance. We especially enjoy the Crows Nest upstairs on Weds. night when the sail boat races are taking place. Johnnie's Harborside, the Java Junction, El Palomar, and Lago di Coma are also favorites of ours. Deke's market on 7th Ave. is a great place for sandwiches and various grocery sundries. There are public tennis courts and a great kids park a few minutes away on 7th Ave. We also enjoy walking and riding bikes on the harbor road where the sea otters, seals, and pelicans are always entertaining. The Santa Cruz Beach Board Walk is a 5-minute drive away with the famous wooden roller coaster and many other thrilling rides for all ages. A 18-hole minature golf course at the boardwalk is also a good way to spend an afternoon. Downtown Santa Cruz and Capitola nearby offer unique shopping opportunities, movie theaters, and other excellent restaurants.

Great layout an proximity to the beach
Perfect layout for 2 families. The kids loved having the basement level to themselves. Short walk to the beach and some cute restaurants close by. Very cute home and I loved falling asleep to the sound of ocean waves. Property manager was very ready to help. We enjoyed our stay!
Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. Also, you left our house in great shape and that is most appreciated. I hope you will come back and visit soon!
A composers Inspiration!
I had two composers staying with us
for the Cabrillo Music Festival, One from
England and one from Brazil! They loved
hearing the surf at night and found the
location relaxing and inspiring!
The house was perfect and well stocked
with cooking equipment and beach accessories! We would recommend this
charming cottage to everyone!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. I really appreciate your kind words!
We have rented this well appointed house multiple times. The house is a block from the beach and a few blocks from the harbor and wonderful restaurants. We love being able to walk everywhere. The house is extremely comfortable, tastefully decorated and well stocked but my favorite is the front deck with glimpses of the ocean— the perfect spot to sit with a glass of wine and watch the world go by.
We thoroughly enjoyed this lovely beach house! There were 6 of us...4 adults, 2 children & 1 small dog. Plenty of room to relax. Such a comfortable home with everything you would ever need. The location is wonderful...walk down the block and you're at the beach. We also walked a couple of blocks to the Crow's Nest for breakfast. Wonderful food...highly recommend. We drove to the Boardwalk for the day which was convenient. One of the highlights of our stay was watching our 2 grandchildren enjoying the beach and boogie boarding. Marie was so helpful & informative, and if we had any questions, she responded right away. Thank you Marie...we had a wonderful celebration at your beautiful home.
Perfect In Every Way
Such a sweet home close to be beach. Everything we needed was there and the owners were a delight to work with. The furnishings stuck just the right tone for us. Well represented by the pictures on VRBO. We are grateful we could have a family gathering there.
We recently stayed at this property and had a great time! The house is in a great location with a two minute walk to the beach. The layout of the house is ideal and worked well for two families. The basement room was also a huge hit for the teenagers in our group! We also loved the fact that the entire property was fenced in so we didn’t have to worry about our two dogs!! The house was well stocked with everything you could possibly need. We would definitely stay here again! Great place!
Thank you for taking the time to write a nice review... it is most appreciated. The house was left in very good condition and you will be welcomed back any time!
The Montery Bay Aquarium is approx. a 45-minute drive from our home. Two guest passes are available at the house.
